There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The past 12-16 months gave us the X, the X Compact, the X Performance, the XZ, the XZS, the XA1, and a gaggle of other mid-tier offerings from Sony. Of them, only the XZS and the XZ Premium could come close to laying claim to flagship status, with the latter coming with one of the finest 4K displays in the business. Unfortunately XZS didn't come with a battery big enough to power the nice phone specs, and the XZ Premium was an exceptionally large phone, at an exceptionally large price.
The XZ1 sees the company step up it's game. As of this writing, it's one of the few devices shipping with Android 8 / Oreo out of the box, running the latest Snapdragon 835 processor, with a beautiful 1080 display and a slightly-refined physical design and sturdy-feeling build-quality. And for nearly $700, it certainly should have a premium feel to it.
Even the best phones are balancing acts of compromise, so while there's certainly something here for everyone, it's also unlikely to appeal to absolutely everyone. Most people either love or hate Sony's take on industrial design. Some bemoan the size of the top and bottom bezels. In a world where the S8 strives to give customers nothing-but-screen, Sony certainly isn't following the fashion train. But they sure as heck are following the functional-device-train.
Having owned an S8, I certainly see the appeal. It's a beautiful looking device. But at the end of the day, I found the lack of bezels to be a problem in day to day use. With no edge on which to rest fingertips, I was constantly accidentally activating various apps, or accidentally hitting the wrong onscreen area within a given app. Nice to look at...but darn if it's not a pain to actually use.
So, here's a subjective run down of Pros and Cons:
- Great screen. In addition to it's Triluminous setting, Sony has added a new video color-saturating setting. Honestly, it looks like they're taking a stab at the popping colors and deep blacks on OLED devices like the S8. And they've done a good job...this is one of the sharpest, most color popping screens out there at the moment.
- Great processor. The new Snapdragon is great. Everything runs smoothly.
- Headphone jack / Audio processing. Yay for hanging on to this bit of tech, the old headphone jack. Bluetooth headphones are well and good, but they eat up a battery, and they can't deliver the same quality of audio as a wired set. If how your music sounds on your device is important to you, wired is still the way to go. For now at least. And Sony's DESS audio processing sounds pretty great to my ears. Pick up a third party audio player like Neutron if you'd like even more control of the sound.
- Physical design. This really doesn't belong in the "con" column, but the fact is either you like what Sony is doing here, or you don't.
- Price. Sony offers a handful of budget models, but their flagship line has never been anything but pricey. Especially in America where the brand isn't known for it's mobile devices, the average android user might be hard pressed to pay $699 to a company they normally associate with televisions. In Europe and Asia, though, Sony remains a popular contender with Samsung and Apple for high end devices.
- Battery. This also might not be a negative, as the new Snapdragon and Oreo are alleged to be more efficient with their power use. Running some benchmarks seem to bear this out, as while it leads in most areas, there are some processes they've scaled back. So far, I don't see any penalty in processing power, but I've also not had it long enough to take a firm stance on battery life. But anecdotally, it does seem to be an improvement over the XZS and XZ Performance.
As for the phone itself, it's pretty good, even now in late-2018. As has been mentioned a bunch before, the fingerprint sensor doesn't work on US models, so take that as you will. Flashing other firmware to enable it is possible, but I didn't feel like going through the hassle. I'm glad it keeps the headphone jack, the last Sony flagship to do so I believe. The software is nice with almost no major bloatware, aside from a few pre-installed apps, which can easily be disabled for the most part. The phone is also running Android 9.0 Pie, which is cool to see and Sony is fairly good about putting out security updates each month, although for how much longer that will continue is hard to say.
There's no OLED display, just LCD, but Sony makes some amazing looking displays, so it hardly matters in this case. Battery life has also been good, not fantastic, but good. Sony's "Stamina" mode definitely helps to extend battery life when necessary. There are some other software tweaks that Sony has done which help make the things run more smoothly, but nothing major enough to distract from the standard Android experience.
Aside from the fingerprint sensor not working, the only other downside is the camera. It's not terrible, but for a 2017 phone, I certainly expected more. It can take some good shots outdoors with good lighting, but they're average quality at best. Software updates have only marginally improved things. Overall, just okay.
With all that being said, if you're still looking for something good in 2018/19 and you're alright with an average camera and no fingerprint sensor by default, this is still a great phone that has the latest updates and doesn't skip a beat. For the right price, you can't go wrong with the XZ1.
The night lite android function is disabled. The raw camera output is disabled. The proprietary audio and visual engines only work with drm locked phone. they are ending the support for the phone this month. the hardware is plenty fast, overkill really.
REVISED AND UPDATED ON 8-8-20. Rec'd a replacement phone 2 weeks ago, the speaker has already gone bad in it.
The company that fulfilled these 2 orders have criminally been selling phones phones as NEW, When are both obviously worn out phones in a new case. Am quite disgusted and angry with their deceit and allowing a fraudulent outside supplier conduct such fraud.

There was no wrapping on the box but my assumption is they opened it to replace the European charger with a Canadian one.
Finger print scanner works on this device but I find after a day working with your hands or simply if your hands were just washed it has a hard time detecting you.
MMS quality on received photos is poor but it appears to be a known phone issue. Contacted good for a possible update.
Will update my review after a few months.
I sent them back, It has been many weeks and still, I have not received a credit.
Rang Amazon and they told me it's in the system just wait.
