  • Sony Xperia XZ Premium review: 4K flagship has stacks of specs appeal

    Plus

    • Great 4K display with HDR technology
    • Good battery life
    • Super slow-motion feature is excellent
    • Good overall software experience
    • Waterproofing
    • Cheaper than some other flagships

    Minus

    • Design hasn't moved on much
    • Camera isn't as good as competition
    • Display doesn't manage well in super bright conditions
    • Occasional lag in performance

    Conclusion The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is every bit the flagship smartphone in terms of spec, but it doesn't bring the same wow factor as the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG G6.On the upside, the XZ Premium delivers a fantastic display that's perfect for entertainment, the super slow-motion camera feature is exceptionally cool, the battery life is worthy of a pat on the back, waterproofing very handy, and the overall performance is great for the most part.The big letdown is that the design is lacklustre compared to other flagship devices, despite the lovely glossy coloured glass finish. The main camera also isn't quite as good in our view. Ultimately, there is plenty to love about the Sony XZ Premium, especially if you're a Sony fan and into that flat-slab design. It's a flagship device with some great features, some of which can't be found elsewhere, but in the current smartphone world it's just not quite as exciting as its competition.Alternatives to consider...Pocket-lintSamsung Galaxy S8 The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the flagship to rule all flagships. From a design perspective it's an unbridled head-turner, delivering design that's a step above any of the competition out there. Its display is excellent, as is its camera experience and the software has been reworked to be super battery conscious. The rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is a little misplaced and not overly responsive but in short, the Galaxy S8 is a masterpiece.Read the full article: Samsung Galaxy S8 review Pocket-lintSamsung Galaxy S8+The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is the larger sibling to the S8 with a 6.2-inch display, but it is still narrower than the Sony XZ Premium, making one-handed operation more manageable thanks to the display's 18.5:9 ratio. It offers an exquisite design, great camera, high-quality waterproof build and top-class performance. If you're after a big-screen device, the S8+ is a fantastic option, even if it is expensive.Read the full article: Samsung Galaxy S8+ reviewPocket-lintLG G6First off the mark with this new taller aspect display was the LG G6. It pipped Samsung to the post in announcing, but the devices all hit shelves around the same time and are all now available. The Samsung is more fully featured and more powerful, but it's also more expensive. LG brings its innovative dual camera to the party and also promises Dolby Vision content from its HDR display.Read the full article: LG G6 review

  • Sony Xperia XZ Premium review

    Conclusion The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a stunning smartphone, both in terms of design and performance. The mirror-like look isn’t for everyone due to the appearance of smudges, but it helps provide an elegant, high-end look. The 4K HDR display is one-of-a-kind, bright and vibrant, and shows off snaps taken by the impressive Motion Eye camera perfectly. The camera itself can handle almost anything you can throw at it, although performance does slip in low-lit conditions and the super slow-mo video mode takes some practice. If you’re looking for a gorgeous high-end smartphone with a huge focus on display and cameras with above average battery life, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a solid option.

    Conclusion
    A strong phone from Sony with excellent innovation in the screen. However, it all depends on how much this monster of a phone will cost, and whether the streamed 4K footage actually looks good on here at all.
