Sony Xperia XZ Premium Information

The Xperia XZ Premium is Sony's headline phone for 2017, and with that, it comes with all the top specifications. There's a 5.5 inch screen with a whopping 4K resolution, a Snapdragon 835 processor and an incredible camera which has 960fps slow-motion capabilities.

Display

To put it simply, you won't find a sharper screen on another smartphone on the market.

This is Sony's second smartphone to come with a 4K display, backed up by Bravia T tech and the resolution is astonishing.

That said, while you may have access to a 3840 x 2160 resolution panel, the vast majority of the time you'll be looking at an upscaled 1080p version of the Android operating system otherwise you would drain your battery life incredibly quickly. The 4K is typically saved for videos already on the Sony app.

Design

Generally, the feedback is that the design of the handset is the weakest aspect of the XZ. While a lot of phone manufacturers have moved onto curved ediged and rounded corners, Sony has stuck with the same rectangle design - making it seem a bit old-fashioned and boxy.

There is a choice of two colours two, Deepsea Black or Luminous Chrome which is super-shiny and reflective.

Unsurprisingly for a headline phone, exceptional materials have been used on the phone with glass being on the front and back. That said, the sides of the phone are noticeably plastic, which is a bit of a letdown, considering it is the material you feel when you actually hold the handset - so can feel a bit cheap.

The handset comes with Gorilla Glass 5, which adds a certain amount of robustness, however, you may consider getting a phone case as the glass rear is incredibly slippery, so prone to dropping.

At the bottom of the phone you'll find a USB-C port for charging with a 3.5mm jack on the top.

The Xperia XZ PRemium is IP68 rated, which means the handset can withstand being submerged in water to depths of 1.5m for 30 mins, if you wanted it to.

Performance and software

Packed with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, (although is expandable through microSD) the performance of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is excellent, super fast and can hold a serious amount of data.

The XZ PRemium runs the latest Android version 7.1.1, which means apps load quickly, Android runs smoothly and the handset will happily run multiple apps at the same time.

Camera

The XZ Premium's camera is incredibly impressive. It has a 'Motion Eye' capture system, which means it's the first mobile stacked memory sensor to have dedicated DRAM, which will help with processing speeds.

Another cool feature is Predictive Capture, which buffers images when the sensor detects motion, capturing images immediately before and after you actually press the shutter button. You can then choose the best shot or save all three of them.

The XZ has a new .3-inch sensor sees the megapixel count reduced to 19 megapixels from the 23-megapixel version used in the regular Xperia XZ, however, the pixels themselves are now 19% bigger, improving low-light performance. .

This phone's real boasting point is video, though. This phone can shoot ultra-slo-mo video, right down to 960fps, which plays back real life at 1/40 of the speed.

Battery

Sony promises 'all-day battery life' from the XZ Premium and that exactly what it delivers from the 3230mAh battery. You'll be able to constantly use social media, receive messages and still have battery at the end of the day.

If you are going to have a heavy-use day, you can use the Stamina mode to eke out extra battery life by disabling background functions. A smart notification pops up to let you know that your battery will likely die before your next charge and asks if you want to enable the battery-saving function which is a nice touch.

How to find the best Sony Xperia XZ Premium deals

Use the filters to search by the various options:

  • Minutes, Texts and Data - Consider how you'll use your Xperia XZ Premium and try and estimate what allowances you'll need. Do you stream music and need a lot of data or are you a big chatter and need a high calls allowance?
  • Network - There are lots of networks to choose from, all of which have pros and cons. You'll get the widest coverage from EE, whereas Three is the only network to offer unlimited mobile data.
  • Cost - Think about what you consider a reasonable monthly cost, and how much you're prepared to pay over the length of a contract as a total cost. Can you afford a handset cost upfront or not?
  • Storage - Most handsets come with a variety of internal storage options.
  • Refurbished phones - If you're looking to reduce costs, some handsets are available as a refurbished phone.

Once you've considered all these options, you should be able to find a contract that's right for you. Click on the deal and we'll take you to the provider's website.

You now have 30 days to pass this code to your new network supplier, who will then port the number from your old SIM to your new SIM, which means you can keep using your existing mobile number.

Going SIM-only

If you decide you don't need a handset with your new mobile plan, then there are loads of SIM-only deals to consider. As they don't include the cost of a phone, they are often a lot cheaper than handset contract deals.
