Design and display

High dynamic range

The Xperia XZ1’s 5.2-inch Full HD screen is HDR, which stands for high dynamic range. This brings out a huge range of colours you wouldn’t have previously been able to see on a smartphone screen, making for a brilliant, crystal-clear viewing experience. 

Sophisticated design

Sony’s iconic smartphone design fits perfectly in the hand, and the metal body is both sturdy and good-looking. And when it comes to protection, you can rest-assured the screen won’t easily take on damage, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. 

Camera

Motion Eye™

The Motion Eye™ tech in this Sony handset is taken straight from the company’s range of digital cameras. The 19MP G Lens works together with a range of sensors to create and capture perfect photos in the most challenging conditions. 

Super slow-mo

The XZ1’s party trick is its super slow-motion video capture, at 960 frames per second (fps). This incredible frame rate lets you see things the human eye can’t even process, revealing the intricate details in life you mightn’t have otherwise been able to appreciate.  

Under the hood

Hi-Res audio

The speakers on the XZ1 are 40% louder than the previous model’s, and really bring your music to life. For an even finer-tuned listening experience, however, connect a pair of digital noise-cancelling headphones, to really take advantage of the power of Hi-Res audio. 

Top-level performance

On the inside of the smartphone, there’s Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor. It will make sure you’ll be able to enjoy smooth-running, impressive graphics in all your games. And with 4GB RAM you’ll be able to do lots of things at once without slowing down. 

3D Creator

A new tool for the Xperia range is the 3D Creator app, which lets you scan real-life objects using the camera, to produce a three-dimensional render.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Phone Had for a month now and it is an amazing phone. Had Samsung and HTC in the past but this is something else. So quick and easy to use, and the slow-mo camera is fun to use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing phone I previously had a Windows phone. All my friends raved about android phones and I was not sure why. Now I do. A mate recommended Sony phones because I game on a PS4 and the link up is incredible. The screen is unbelievably clear. The camera takes the best quality photos I have ever seen on a phone. In all honesty I am blown away with it. Its been over a week and I am still astounded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic phone! I got this phone back in October - after being iPhone for 4 years - and initially I regretted changing phones. The Sony kept randomly restarting and crashing at points - even restarting randomly during a call to my boyfriend. I decided to persevere for a bit and glad I'm did. Since the first update I've had no issues whatsoever! I believe the issues are more linked to the oreo software and not the actual phone itself! The camera is fantastic, scrolling through screens/processor is so much quicker than the iPhone, its so much easier to use and I can actually last a whole day with the battery life!!!! The phone doesn't feel as fragile to hold either!
