Anonymous, 05 Oct 2017Have been using the XZ1 for 3 days now and absolutely love it. The look and feel of the phone ... moreSony is the right android phone man. It's UI is the most stable smooth superb android UI. Google it if you don't trust me.
no radio, no ir blaster, no removable battery and no dual camera. saaadddddeeesssst.
Have been using the XZ1 for 3 days now and absolutely love it. The look and feel of the phone screams "premium". The features that stand out to me are the sharp on-screen colors, smooth UI, great battery life, and excellent sound quality with and without headphones (not sure why GSM review indicated average sound quality with below average volume, my experience has been quite positve).
I had previously used the Z1 Compact, Z2 and Z3 Compact, then moved away from Sony as they seemed to had lost their focus, which to me was premium build quality, above average battery life, and flawless operation. Over the last couple years I have used the Xiaomi Mi5 and most recently the Google Pixel. My expereince with these devices was positive, but I missed the Sony UI. After reading reviews and looking at the specs of the XZ1 and XZ1 compact, it was clear that Sony found their niche again.
Using this device, I feel like i'm back at home! Well done SONY!
To be honest I only got my phone today and I think its a corker all round phone...screen, speed, yes the camera is only 19 mega pixels compared to the z5 23..can't see any difference whatsoever...i will enjoy the 2 yrs with this phone..
Krishna, 02 Oct 2017Does anybody know if the XZ1 has better network and wifi signal reception? Had XZs in past and... more4G signal keeps disappearing on me with XZ1 compact. There are a few complaints on this on Amazon UK. Not sure how widespread it is but it does not seem to be an isolated issue.

Anonymous, 03 Oct 2017Note 8? iPhone 8? S8? Lol are you drunk. Just watch speed test comparison between Sony XZ Prem... moreYou are wrong. Just go to the Android Authority and see A11 vs SNAPDRAGON 835.
They Clearly stated that A11 bionic chipset is at least 2 years ahead of the best chipset that Android phone manufacturers use.
Ripcord, 02 Oct 2017The best android smartphone???? Ja ja ja ja ja, maybe if it was 2014! Or maybe you meant for S... moreNote 8? iPhone 8? S8? Lol are you drunk. Just watch speed test comparison between Sony XZ Premium. Sony beats them all. If you don't trust your eyes it is your problem.
Everyone will complain sony about their design. Saying too mig bezels not trendy design as S8 blah blah. But no one sees how is the design of Iphone. This full body screen design is overrated. We cannot drop the once with this trendy fancy design. even sony can build phones with this design as they did with XA product line.
AnonD-689274, 02 Oct 2017Hi Friend, Thanks for your detailed explanation, I own an Xperia Z2, now am planning to upg... moreMan if you can wait one more year it is confirmed that sony will change its design (shrink bezels finally 😄) That is just my suggestion this phone also has a nicd design but dem bezels are really a little bit too big, ofc if you dont mind dat just go for it ---->
AnonD-481725, 02 Oct 2017If you don't mind bezels then yes it is definitely the best android smartphone. The best android smartphone???? Ja ja ja ja ja, maybe if it was 2014! Or maybe you meant for Sony. This phone is nothing compared to the Note 8, the S8, the LG G6, V30 or practically every other Android flagship out there. There are easily tens of phones better than this slab of you know what.
Even its look; so outdated. The same as all other Sony phones even back to the Sony Ericsson era: humongous bezels and a mediocre screen... Only die-hard sony fans would agree with you... Sony should just give up.
