About the Phone

The Sony Xperia XZ1 may turn heads, but it may not keep the stares on it for long. It has the following pros and cons:

Pros

  • It comes with standard water and dust resistance.
  • The Xperia XZ1 comes with a new 3D Scan that allows 3D modelling of an image so that you can get it 3D printed if you want.
  • It has ultra-slow motion recording at 960 fps.
  • Arriving with the Snapdragon 835 chipset makes this a lightning fast phone with incredible speed for both games and apps.

Cons

  • The Xperia XZ1 arrives with a poor set of cameras when compared to its competitors.
  • It is quite expensive but arrives with just a Full HD display.
  • The Xperia XZ1 has thick bezels which result in a small screen space.
  • It comes with a dated design with the Sony box-like appearance.
  • Sony fits the Xperia XZ1 with a weak battery that may not last for an entire day without a top-up.

Despite coming with a passable camera-set, excellent performance, and suitable display, the Xperia XZ1 does not hit the mark when compared to its more robust competitors. It has just a few gimmicks which make it stand apart, but that is not enough. If possible, it is much better to go for its competitors like LG G6, iPhone 7 Plus, or Samsung Galaxy S8. As a Sony fan, Xperia XZ can be added as a collectable.
