One of Sony's highest-specked Xperias, the 5.2-inch Xperia XZ, which, despite not rocking a QHD-1440p display (it has an FHD-1080p resolution) and coming with only 2900mAh of raw battery power -- several of its rivals boast roughly-4000mAh battery packs in comparison, is a big step forward for the brand's flagship X-series.
Its biggest pros come from the imaging department, particularly, a 23-megapixel 4K-video hybrid-AF rear camera with a triple image sensing technology and a 13-megapixel f/2.0 low-light selfie cam . Powering those premium-class cameras is a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core CPU (2.2GHz maximum clock rate) coupled with a 3GB RAM .
The XZ's flagship specs also include a 64GB (32GB for single-SIM version) memory expandable by up whopping 256GB , a fingerprint sensor stealthily embedded into its side home key , and an IP68/IP65 splash-ready housing . Moreover, it brings back Sony's signature PS4 Remote Play software alongside Qnovo Adaptive Charging , the latter trying to make up for its relatively low power cap.
As a run-through, the Sony Xperia XZ could have done better than a 2900mAh battery, but for users looking for a high-performance multimedia smartphone, its assortment of pros and cons is just what the doctor ordered.
