Woke up to what I thought was a dead XZ Premium this morning, literally just a day after reading the comments below about them dying. Luckily for me, holding down Power and Down Volume buttons until I felt the phone vibrate and it reset and started up. Big relief!
Still a bit nervous about it going forward. Was already looking to buy a new phone (why I was on the page in the first place). Better hurry up and decide which one (Sony Xperia 5 ii leading my choice atm)
Anonymous, 26 Dec 20202 years almost to the day and it crapped out. Checked a email and 5 minutes later re checked a... moreExactly the same with mine - it just died for no reason. Never dropped, never any damage. OEM charger - the Xperia Premium just died - screen black, no reaction at all. Almost exactly 2 years after purchase. My trust and respect for Sony died with it.
alireza asadi jozani, 14 Jun 2021i have a sony xz premium and my phone died while charging the repair center told me it's... moreexactly the same for me. repair told me motherboard dead, not possible to repair and too expensive and too complicated to repair.
loved and liked the Sony Xperia Premium a lot, but mine just died as well, and I heard countless stories of this expensive phone just dying, as well as the screen completely failing.
The entire phone is unrepairable when it dies (not just the screen) according to all repair sources and repairshops I've been in contact with personally. mine died at almost exactly 2 years (when any legal warranty runs out in my country) after it was brand new. Thats not acceptable quality for something at that price level, so I will never buy a brand new high-value Sony mobile again - I will always wait 6-12months+ and hear and find out how many flaws and deaths have been registered on mobile phones of the certain model I am looking for. This was completely unacceptable Sony. You lost my vote, my confindence and made it impossible for me to recommend you to any of my friends or family as well as stopping me from buying any more high value products from you. Making planned obsolesence items in important highvalue personal electronics is not an acceptable businessmodel to me. My data is more important to me than new products every 2 years.
jam, 12 Apr 2019You are spreading fake news i have the phone one year no problem at all.i have a sony xz premium and my phone died while charging
the repair center told me it's main board is dead and he repaid cost is as much as the phone itself
I have this phone, it cant run Genshin Impact. But since it was still quick and compact plus a headphone jack, I gotta say Im pretty satistfied. For 90 bucks used this is a steal for sure. It can still run other medium-heavy games tho.
Sakuta Kaminari, 20 Apr 2021Great phone. Can sustain most heavy games and apps. Good for working. Averaging 6 hours of SOT. Do you trying to play genshin impact too?

Now I'm stuck on Android 9 Pie with the terrible recent menu

This phone is surprisingly future-proof (well except for the bezels), I remember when people said "there isn't much content in 4K", "960 FPS is a useless gimmick", "3D Creator is a gimmick". Look where we are now: 4K is widely available on YouTube, the 3 layer stacked CMOS sensor got ripped off by Samsung and many others (cough Huawei, Xiaomi, Realme) used (fake/interpolated) software 960FPS mode, 3D Scanning is now Available on Huawei's, Samsung's and Apple's flagships.
Wish Sony would be as innovative as they are in the past and continue to support these features instead of dropping it...
Just checked today. Own it 3years and 7 months. Still works perfect. The battery as the first day. Love Sony.
mikeupd, 12 Mar 2021Hi, I'm looking to upgrade from my Xperia XZ Premium. Not bothered for 5G, or pro grade ... moreFor the person who is looking for an upgrade. I suggest to go for the XZ2 or XZ3. I can't tell exactly how different both are since I don't own them, only thing I know is that they use the same chipset, the same RAM amount but the XZ3 is 1440p while the XZ2 is 1080p, another difference is that the XZ3 has a POLED screen and the XZ2 has an IPS LCD. You should check them out!
Hi, I'm looking to upgrade from my Xperia XZ Premium. Not bothered for 5G, or pro grade cameras. Need good screen, good sound, 3.5mm jack socket, SD card slot. Ideally stay with Sony but will consider anything not Chinese. Thoughts/suggestions welcomed - Mike (UK based)
I dont know why but I feel 5 or 6 hours of consecutive hours usage isnt enough for me. Especially when watching anime or playing games. But I'm sure you guys dont care. Overall I have had this phone for about month now and the experience is great. Not perfect but great. Might get a pocophone f1 next.
