When the Sony Xperia XZ Premium hit the shelves two years ago, it massively impressed us with its scintillating 4K display and beguiling slow motion camera. What didn’t impress us was the price, which came in only a shade under the steep Samsung Galaxy S8 prices at the time.
Xperia XZ Premium deals got gradually cheaper in the months that followed –
probably thanks to the arrivals of the iPhone 8 and Galaxy Note 8. And now they have dropped even further (the world of iPhone XS Max and Note 9 prices tends to do that). The only cause for concern is that there now seem to be far fewer XZ Premium deals out there. It’s as if the retailers have cleared the stock room to make room for the Xperia XZ2.
For the meantime though, we can tell you that the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a bonafide hit and a genuine step up from the XZ. So use our comparison chart to pick out your perfect deal, before the phone disappears from the shelves completely.
Sony Xperia XZ Premium review
An Xcellent smartphone from Sony
Screen size: 5.46-inches | Resolution: 3840 x 2160 | Rear camera: 19MP | Weight: 195g | OS: Android 7 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64GB | External storage: microSD up to 256GB | Battery: 3230mAh
Stunning 4K display
Surprisingly decent battery
Design not as premium as some
Premium isn’t merely a name when it comes to Sony’s older flagship phone. The awesome 4K display and jaunty slow motion camera are just two great examples why the tech giant is charging top dollar for this mobile. If it’s a big, fancy phone you’re after, you won’t be disappointed by the Xperia XZ Premium.
