Sony Xperia XZ Premium detailed nhận xét

Sony may not have a real hold on the điện thoại thông minh space anymore, but its phones remain as relevant as ever. The company recently announced that it’ll focus on the premium range from now on. That, combined with the fact that Sony only caters to its own fans, means the company now has a niche sort of market for itself. For that nibít market, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the best the Japanese mainstay has to lớn offer.

But niche or not, Sony has a place in the market as long as it wants. Not only does the company supply almost all camera modules out there, its flagship phones are still a testament khổng lồ what the best of Android can be. The Xperia XZ Premium is priced at Rs. 59,990 and carves out a place for itself in a market that’s more crowded than the Mumbai local trains.

Build và Design

You can always trust Sony lớn stand apart in one way or the other. The Xperia XZ Premium looks nothing like any other smartphone you’ll find. While it does have glass on both sides like so many other smartphones today, the mirror-finish is distinct. True to lớn its name, the Xperia XZ Premium literally feels lượt thích it’s wrapped in a mirror.



While it’s a unique thiết kế indeed, the mirror finish is slippery and extremely fingerprint intensive. Combined with the phone’s large footprint, the XZ Premium is certainly difficult lớn use. While the display size is only 5.5-inch, there are large strips of glass above, below & on either side of the display. The phone’s overall footprint is closer to lớn 6-inch or larger smartphones.

Almost all of Sony’s design choices here are double-edged swords. For instance, the top và bottom of the phone have sầu chamfered metallic strips, which look premium and chất lượng, but they’ll dig inkhổng lồ your hands when holding the phone in landscape mode. Similarly, the dedicated camera shutter button lies near the bottom of the right side, and you often end up pressing it inadvertently.



Personally speaking, I vày like the Xperia XZ Premium’s design. It’s refreshing, new, quality and there’s not a single bone to lớn pichồng in terms of build unique, except the obvious fact that glass breaks and scratches easily.

That said, many may gọi this gaudy, especially in the chrome finish, while fingerprints will be easier lớn spot on the blachồng variant.


The px race on điện thoại thông minh displays seemed to lớn have reached saturation, until Sony unveiled the first version of this phone last year. The highlight here is that the XZ Premium can render 4K resolution & HDR colour. So, not only is it at par with competing flagship phones, it can actually show you more pixels on occasion.

We’ll get to the 4K and HDR bit a little later, but let’s talk about the display in general at first. The 5.5 inch display is rendered in 1080p for the most part. So, there’s actually little to separate it from the Xperia XZs. Colours are slightly swayed towards the cooler side, but there’s excellent control settings for this, allowing you to lớn tune them to lớn your own preference. I found the Pro settings to lớn my liking, but you can choose others, or use toggles lớn directly tweak the primary colours.

The display is as bright as it gets & Sony seems khổng lồ have tweaked Android’s auto-brightness algorithms to lớn good effect. The XZ Premium isn’t as adept at manipulating brightness as an iPhone, but it’s much better at it than most Android devices. It judges ambient light quite well and brightness levels are changed smoothly.

4K and HDR

The display kicks inlớn higher gear only when you deliver 4K and HDR videos. To be absolutely frank, higher resolution is of little significance on a 5.5-inch panel. While the the display is noticeably sharper, you’ll have to take a really cchiến bại look khổng lồ ascertain the same. I used an Xperia XZs (1080p) và XZ Premium (4K) side-by-side, playing and pausing the same video clip in 1080p at precisely the same time to lớn find the difference. With enough effort you’ll see added details like the scales on human hands, but it doesn’t make a very big difference for regular usage. The tangible difference here is that the Xperia XZ Premium is the only điện thoại thông minh that trigger’s YouTube’s 4K playbaông xã option right now.

The really important addition here is HDR colour, which actually makes a much more noticeable difference. The XZ Premium produces better details in shadows, and contrast ratio and colour details is enhanced here. You won’t see this difference unless you’re comparing HDR and non-HDR displays side-by-side, but HDR does allow viable benefits in the long run. Sony’s display is at par with the Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG G6 on this front.

It’s worth noting that the phone tends khổng lồ heat up a little bit when playing 4K và HDR videos. It’s not abnormal heating by any stretch, but internal temperatures can rise to 44 degrees, which you won’t find during regular video playbaông xã. Also, the Xperia XZ Premium drops 5% battery after 15 minutes of 4K HDR playback, which is not ikhuyễn mãi giảm giá.

The Xperia XZ Premium is our first phone running the Snapdragon 835 chipmix from Qualcomilimet. Clocked at 2.45GHz, the chipphối uses eight of Qualcomm’s semi-custom Kryo cores and supports up lớn 1Gbps downliên kết speeds. It’s built on the 10nm fabrication process, making it power efficient as well. But, for all intents and purposes, the Snapdragon 835 is an evolutionary update over the 820.

On the Xperia XZ Premium, it drives benchmark scores khổng lồ as high as Android phones can bởi today, but regular usage is not noticeably faster. To be clear, the XZ Premium is as fast as any flagship should be, it’s just not noticeably faster. You’ll find subtle differences in the fact that the XZ Premium switches from di động data to WiFi (and vice-versa) faster than the XZs. Similarly, Bluetooth không dây connections are achieved faster too, but not because of công nghệ Bluetooth không dây 5.0 support. The Xperia XZ Premium processes such functions faster than phones with the SnapLong 8đôi mươi, but it’s an incremental improvement only.

There are also no noticeable heating issues on the Xperia XZ Premium. In regulated environments, with the room temperature controlled khổng lồ 24 degrees, the phone rises to about 45 degrees on heavy gaming for over half an hour. That’s normal for smartphones today. A similar result is found when recording 4K videos, more heat is generated with this than on gaming. That’s not abnormal either.

Overall, the Xperia XZ Premium is as fast as any flagship today, và in comparative sầu terms it’s faster than the LG G6, which runs on the Snapdragon 8trăng tròn. You can expect smooth UI transitions và reasonably lower load times. Although we must say that the Samsung Galaxy S8 felt faster in terms of regular user experience.


Like the XZs, the Xperia XZ Premium also boasts 960fps slow motion recording. You can learn about the giải pháp công nghệ involved và its impact in the Xperia XZs review.

The camera on this phone is the same as the XZs anyway. The camera here is faster than previous Sony flagships & image unique is excellent in most conditions. It’s not the best you can get in terms of low light performance. The XZs produces good details và accurate colours, while noise is kept under control. Contrast levels are decent as well and dynamic range is pretty high.

The camera works well as long as you’re not shooting in low light. In such conditions, phones lượt thích the LG G6 (review) & Samsung Galaxy S8 (review) are ahead. While the G6 produces clearer details và better contrast in low light, the Samsung Galaxy S8 clicks brighter photos. While Sony has reduced shutter delay and processing times on this phone, both the LG G6 & Galaxy S8 remain faster.

Another tricky element of the Xperia XZ Premium camera is the dedicated shutter button. While camera enthusiasts will indeed appreciate the button, it’s somewhat erratic in practical terms. There seems to be a noticeable delay between when the button is pressed and the phokhổng lồ clicked. Also, half pressing the button should direct the phone to focus, but this doesn’t work well sometimes.


For the most part, the Xperia XZ Premium is at par with any flagship smartphone out there. But that can’t be said about its battery. While flagship phones vì chưng produce only about a work day’s worth of battery life, the Xperia XZ Premium lasted us lower still. On regular usage, you’re looking at about 38% lower battery life than the Galaxy S8 and nearly 45% lower than the LG G6. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium lasts just under 6 hours on the PC Mark Battery test, which is the weakest score for a flagship on our benchmark tests at the moment.

You’ll need khổng lồ charge this phone twice a day to have sầu it last a full 24 hours. Sony does allow fast charging, so you can get a quick boost of power when you need it. Streaming an hour of HD Clip on Amazon Prime Video uses about 20% battery, while an hour of gaming is a tad more power consuming. In essence, if you charge this phone to lớn 100% at 9am, you’ll need khổng lồ charge it once more at around 5pm. If you’re a heavy user, you’ll need another charge in between.

While we’re on the topic, Sony’s Battery Care feature is a nifty addition. The feature learns when you usually leave sầu your device on charge for extended periods. If it detects the same, it trickle charges the phone over this time, so that the battery’s life is extended. It also tells you when your battery is estimated to run out, or if it’s going to lớn run out before the next charge. The predictions aren’t always accurate, but trickle charging lớn extkết thúc life is a good idea by Sony.


To sum up, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the best Sony has khổng lồ offer right now. It keeps up with competing flagships for the most part, with battery life being it’s real downfall. 4K resolution & 960 fps slo-mo video recording are gimmicks that some may lượt thích, but it’s tough khổng lồ see practical implementation for those. The Xperia XZ Premium is a decent flagship điện thoại thông minh for the Sony người. It’s just not the smartphone we’d recommover over the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Samsung’s phone feels faster, shoots better photos and lasts longer on each charge. That said, amidst a sea of well matched flagship phones, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is certainly one that can catch your fancy.
