Sony’s Xperia smartphones have always been known for their powerful cameras, and the XZ and X Compact seeks to continue Sony’s legacy.


The Xperia XZ will be Sony’s flagship, priced at $998. It will be a 5.2″ smartphone, with a 23MP rear shooter and a powerful 5-axis optical stabilisation upgrade that allows it to shoot photos with incredible precision even whilst moving. Having seen first-hand the abilities of Sony’s camera, it really is incredible. Well, it should be a for a device priced as such.

Here are some shots that I tried out with the Xperia X, some of them were at 8MP using the lowest resolution, so pardon me.

The Xperia XZ also looks really good, simple, but aesthetic. It comes in 3 colours, Forest Blue, Mineral Black and Platinum. It bears quite a strong resemblance to the older Xperia X and gripping it single-handedly is pretty easy. It is also water-resistant, just like the iPhone 7.

Performance-wise, the Xperia XZ is incredible too. With its Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 820, 64-bit Quad-core processor and 3GB RAM, you can expect multitasking to be a breeze and an ultra-fast experience.
