This is the classiest, most luxurious and most comfortable I've ever used. The display is beautiful at 1080p with HDR. The audio is superb. I'm so glad I invested in this device. I hope Sony returns to this design in the near future in some form or fashion. Bezels are very functional and they look great and make the phone look balanced. The Moonlit Blue is the one I bought and it is gorgeous and very unique. Highly recommend.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2018thank you for the advice but apart of battery performance , as someone who owns both phones ... moreNothing much of a difference to be honest, I will still take the XPERIA XZ PREMIUM over the XPERIA XZ1. User experience there is nothing much to say, I use XPERIA HOME BETA for both which I think it should be recommended for those who want the latest home launcher software, I can even do it for my XPERIA Z1, besides u are getting something the same or newer than the home launcher of the XPERIA XZ2 which I also have, hence this is why I say the home launcher is the same for both, same goes to its software, running both ANDROID OREO. For the camera there are only minor improvements for the XPERIA XZ1, mainly in Superior Auto's white balance, but most people wouldn't even notice that to be honest. XPERIA XZ PREMIUM, for better display, and better battery, oh yeah, and also in my own usage the XPERIA XZ PREMIUM can handle heat better than the XPERIA XZ1, as expected, after me testing the gaming performance and watching the teardown video from JerryRigEverything. Back to the XPERIA HOME BETA, if u want to get the official beta versions, go Google+, and go to their beta community, join and subscribe for automatic receive of the beta version through software update, do note that the ones from APKMIRROR aren't the real official versions, they are just released fron different people that may have some mods or fake unofficial versions, so better be careful about that...

For me comparing my XPERIA XZ1 to my XPERIA XZ PREMIUM usage, I have no doubts saying that the XPERIA XZ PREMIUM managed to squeezed out more battery life, lasting a day from 100% at 7am to 23% at 8pm, with moderate usage. With that said, this does not include any 4K YouTube videos, even though the XPERIA XZ PREMIUM is having a 4K display, but note that it only uses 4K when viewing 4K content, so for the rest of the things u do are capped at 1080p, so no worries with the 4K display. I don't know about the price for these 2 smartphones because I bought it earlier, but all I can say is the XPERIA XZ PREMIUM would be the cheaper one, because it got released earlier than the XPERIA XZ1
Hey, I have this phone for almost a month now and I like it more with each day. The display is really vibrant and pleasing even tho it's not on 18:9 bandwagon yet. Stereo speakers are always nice and satysfying to have. Battery life is suprisingly good comapred to my ex LG G5, you'll be able to get two days on a single charge with light use, facebook and all synchonisations always on. Camera experience is very good, but you have to know how to use manual if you want to take good photos at night. On the otherhand, the bezels are outdated, you can get a phone that has a 5.5inch display in almost the same footprint. Btw performance is top notch, design is love it or hate it I guess and I love it. Sony's support is also great.
Guys , what do you think about the battery performance of the xz1 .I'm a heavy user , I play a lot of heavy games , use the phone for multimedia , social networks...I want to know how much SoT it is possible to get with the XZ1 with such a usage

I am using a matte case which the camera lens are flushed and hence there is no bump present, so u wouldn't have to worry about moving your smartphone on a flat surface, spending a few dollars buying a case would help the protection a lot...
xXENDER FREAKXx, 14 Mar 2018Nope, no scratches or scuffs. My XPERIA XZ1's rear camera is made out of glass...Please tell me that the glass lens will not be scratched when I move the phone on a flat surface like my Xperia x as it has many scratches and the photos quality are terrible, please reply as i want to buy this one and also tell if this an upgrade from Xperia x or not.thanks man
