Sony Xperia XZ1 Detailed Specifications – Review, Battery, Camera:- In the recent years, Sony is working hard in manufacturing the flagship Smartphone. Every year they release their Smartphone with some latest features but stick to the old design. Sony has launched its latest flagship phone with the name Xperia XZ1 last year. It consists of various features which make it different from other flagship Smartphone but the company hasn’t added a dual camera, HD display, and bezel-less screen.

The latest Smartphone is almost similar in design with almost similar specs. But you will find the Smartphone of Sony different from them in many aspects. The company has started from where they have ended in 2016 with Xperia Xz. It comprises of a Fingerprint sensor, Android 8.0 and other feature which enhances its power. Fans of Sony Smartphone will love this phone too but people seeking for latest design with new technology will select another phone over this gadget.

The 5.2 inch IPS LCD display is smaller than various Smartphone released in the year 2017. But The Sony Triluminos technology is remarkable. Moreover, the display is HDR10 certified which gives you better color experience. A good balance of colors adds more value to the display. Super vivid mode reduces the natural display and gives you dark or unnatural display which you will surely want to avoid. The overall quality of display with panels is ok.  But there are many other features and specs that you must consider before purchasing this device.


As we told you earlier the design is quite similar to the older versions of Smartphone. The rectangular body has got some rounds out of the sides which resist it to stand vertically on the smooth surface. Well, this is a slight difference in the design otherwise the overall look is familiar. Like other companies are focusing on the bezel-less screen, Sony is still providing the thick bezels on its device. It weighs 5.5 ounces and size is 5.8 x 2.9 x 0.3 inches.

This Smartphone does not consist dual rear camera which is quite unusual in 2017 phone. Other companies are introducing their latest Smartphone with good camera qualities and provide various sensors for better performance. But Sony gives only single rear and front camera of 19 MP and 13 MP respectively. The selfie lovers will be disappointed with the camera quality as there are no special modes and features added to the device.

This phone is powered by high performing Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. This has enhanced the performance of the device. It comes with 64 GB Internal storage and 4 GB RAM. The storage can be expanded up to 256GB by using microSD card. Also, it has an IP68 certification which means this phone is water resistant. This phone has a headphone jack and you can connect your headphones to the device easily.

The best thing we have found in this device is Android 8.0 Oreo which is the latest version of Android available on any device. But the UI skin doesn’t mesh with Android 8.0 which is a bad impression on performance. Also, the fingerprint sensor is not available in US version which means the users living in this country will get the least protection of their devices and data.


It has 2700 mAh battery which gets charged faster in comparison to many other devices with such battery power. The life of the battery is long and it lasts charged up to 9 hours. Also, Qualcomm’s quick charger 3.0 charges the battery quickly in the least time. Moreover, the non-essential apps get disabled automatically when the battery is drained to 15%. This is the smart way to save the battery and hence results in the least drainage.
