The newly released Sony Xperia XZ1 has a 5.2-inch screen, a Snapdragon 835 eight-core processor of 2.45GHz, in addition to 64GB of storage. It can work as a 3D scanner , it has an excellent construction, a button dedicated to the camera, it is water resistant (IP68) , it has a double front speaker, a microSD card slot and a rear camera that can record video in slow motion at 960fps, something that you do not find in cell phones of other brands . Its front camera has 13 megapixels.
However, although its metal design represents a refinement compared to previous models, it still looks a bit old-fashioned when compared to cell phones with small bezels like the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Among its other drawbacks, your camera does not take as good pictures as you would expect on a phone in this category. He continues with problems of light sources and photos, and this does not allow him to compete with the best. In addition, your fingerprint reader is disabled in the US.
In conclusion, the Sony Xperia XZ1 integrates many of the features of the Xperia XZ Premium and adds a refined design, the ability to scan in 3D, Android Oreo and a longer battery life. However, the photos he takes do not meet the expectations of a cell phone of his class and his fingerprint reader arrives deactivated in the USA.
