I have been using the Sony XZ1 for a month now.What a brilliant phone. Amazing build quality,camera and comfortable to use with one hand. So what if it has bezels. Phones are meant to be used not looked at.Having used Sony and other phones I found the Sony phones age much better than some other phones. They are really a quality build and very user friendly. A quick search on the internet will show that in back to back speed tests against the Samsung note 8 with 6 meg ram opposed to the Sony 4 the Sony is still the faster phone.
So to sum in up the following.Amazing front camera and 13 megapixel selfie cam,quality sound and voice,very comfortable to hold,battery lasts more than a day,very vivid screen and super fast response time even in multiple apps.
XZ1 is the phone to have right now .
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2017I don't believe much on benchmarking, actual result is betterin actual life, Sony's devices are much faster and more stable.
I used xz for one year and really loves it because never give my weak heart an attack bcoz of clumsy hands, smooth as new born, never lag, never factory reset. But I want a better camera and selling it and using other brand and regret it.
It's a paradox for me. Now bezel is fine, for thumb rest. And funny now I really miss sony sharp edge, something that I hate before. It make the phone never slides and drop no matter how many sweats. Handling and jumping to take photo is such an easy thing even for my 4 yo daughter.
So, after contemplating so many times, and after reading so many good comments about this device, thanks guys, I planning to buy xz1 now.
leo R, 28 Oct 2017You don't believe me because you are typical sony fan boy who think sony is best and other bra... moreWell before you called me a Sony fanboy lets clear it again I have so many low end and high end phone. Low end I used to gave it to my sibling and I try almost all brand even Chinese too. But I never try iphone ever so you won't see my comment there not even 1. And my last Samsung phone was s6 its very good phone but it slips from my hand and it glass break easily and the service center charge it for 19k here in india. I'm also planning to buy xa1 plus because Sony battery is good.htc 10 is also sturdy,classy.
I think what hurt you the most is when I said I choose the xz1 over s8. That's why you called me Sony fanboy. Sony didn't give me even one mobile for free why will I waste my time if I didn't own one.
leo R, 28 Oct 2017You don't believe me because you are typical sony fan boy who think sony is best and other bra... morePeople of your mentality think so . see my comment properly I told you I didn't believe you cause you said xzs is same like xz1 and I have xz1 and its ok I said not bad that's why. Do you understand or read again properly I'm not any brand fanboy I have xz1 and if it good for me then i'll say it's good only. I have htc 10 and its also very good but yes I don't have s8 because I don't find its better than xz1. Do you have any problem with that?
I can ask you a question if you don't have xz1 then how come you are giving your opinion while we the owner of it cannot??
leo R, 28 Oct 2017You don't believe me because you are typical sony fan boy who think sony is best and other bra... moreWell I have Sony xz1,asus 3 max for battery in case of emergency,htc 10 and I didn't say that Sony is the best but the way you are degrading it is too much. I said its suit my needs it has everything a flagship offer I like it more than s8 . I praise a thing which I used I didn't said bad about s8 as I didn't own it . A good thing deserve credit is my opinion.
Ps do you own xz1
Ri, 28 Oct 2017 I am an xz1 user and I didn't see any difference in xz1 and my friend s8. So I don't believe ... moreYou don't believe me because you are typical sony fan boy who think sony is best and other brands are crap. I have both XZs and S8+ and S8+ takes better pictures.
P.S. Your little trick of changing names in each post can't trick me. I know Siina, 3m, Ri, anonymous are all you.
mischa, 27 Oct 2017Being about just as fast as a higher-specced device is not enough reason to stan for. The Note... more"more cool and useful features" can you tell at least 3 extra cool and usefull features on note 8 compared to sony xz1?
no name, 27 Oct 2017Agree that Sony is great!,But being great dosent mean best!Samsung is the best!.though Sony is... moreSamsung is not the best I used almost all brand and Samsung is not better than Sony in anyway except th bezelless design .
leo R, 27 Oct 2017Xzs and Xz1 are almost the same(except SoC). When I talk about xzs it also implies on xz1. Son... more I am an xz1 user and I didn't see any difference in xz1 and my friend s8. So I don't believe you even though I didn't own the xzs since you say they are the same because xz1 is ok in low light not bad.
[deleted post]I will never understand how can people fall so low just because they hate a brand. Xz1 is good I am having it and I choose it over remote s8 and I think I made a best decision.it fast,classy, sturdy, battery life is ok what else do you want. Bezelless is not so important to me I want a mobile which last longer, stand against fall etc and Sony fits my need better.
mischa, 27 Oct 2017Being about just as fast as a higher-specced device is not enough reason to stan for. The Note... moreNote 8 price is higher. Plus xz1 is better so thanks but I will buy the xz1 instead of note 8.
Tann Hauser, 27 Oct 2017You must be fboy blinded to state Notes screen is better. So, Im entirely glad we dont unders... moreWell, if u don't know, I have seen him here for quite some time now, and he is clearly a SAMSUNG fanboy. He is a immature fanboy that keeps repeating saying SAMSUNG is better in all aspects, this is better than Sony that is better than Sony. Yes, indeed, SAMSUNG is clearly better than Sony, everyone knows it, since it is the best in the world, but can't he just accept the fact that other people like other smartphones that are not SAMSUNG? Really even for fanboys like me who buy Sony smartphones don't go to the SAMSUNG smartphone "territory" and bash on those people who like SAMSUNG. I will just be fine and just read the comments there and agree to them, I don't bash on them like "SONY IS BETTER THAN SAMSUNG IN EVERY ASPECT" Everyone have their own brand they like, and no one can stop them, just like mischa, mischa is a fan of SAMSUNG. But if someone like mischa keeps repeating SAMSUNG is better than Sony in every aspect, storage type, camera, performance, future-proofing, then I will say that that person aka mischa is really immature, he just can't accept the fact that other people like a smartphone brand that is not SAMSUNG
leo R, 27 Oct 2017I can't find xperia keyboard in playstore. May be it don't support nougat.Go to APKMIRROR and type "Xperia Keyboard"
Why is that this review doesn't mention anything about sound quality when doing calls ? mic quality ?
is this a phone or not ?
mischa, 27 Oct 2017Being about just as fast as a higher-specced device is not enough reason to stan for. The Note... moreYes, larger native 570ppi on Note8 of course will blown away XZP 1080p (4K only show up on supported app/movie), but Note8 price also almost twice from XZP ( at least in my country Indonesia, Note8 12,8M IDR vs XZP 7,4M IDR ).
i had watch youtube before about 3D test on Note8 vs XZP. XZP with adreno540 blown away Note8.
i don't like those 18:9 ratio on note8 & edge,
but i too don't like those same old design on XZP/XZ1 ( i used to had Z3C,Z5 ) but better feeling when hold Z5 compare to my wife S7.
camera ? Sony software is still not good, lowlight is a no go. samsung is the winner, but sometime unnatural colors (over vivids ?).
if u ask me what to choose, then i choose XZ1/XZP just because it's a lot cheaper ^_^. i can live with those old design dan screen.
