Sony Xperia XZs review

 

A confused midrange phone with a time-stopping ability

Refined design ; Awesome super slo-mo feature

Too expensive ; Not futureproof in specs

Sony’s slo-mo focused phone impresses with its camera trick, but this phone is too expensive for being a mostly iterative experiment.

Sony Xperia XZs review: Minor flagship upgrade, but a long way to go - Tech2

 

Sony has added a new camera and bumped up the RAM. But is that enough to make it a worthy buy? Read on for more.

I mentioned before that I love Sony smartphones. I still do, they have a certain place in my heart. But the past few flagships devices from the company have not been up to the mark and not been able to justify the price. The Xperia XZs is a minor...

Sony Xperia XZs

 

The Sony Xperia XZs makes few significant hardware improvements over the original to warrant its high price.

Solid performance. Good camera. High-resolution audio and dual stereo speakers. Waterproof. Current Android software.

Expensive. Relatively low-resolution display. Fingerprint sensor not activated in US. Bulky design.

At $700, the Sony Xperia XZs is priced like a flagship. It offers great camera performance and solid battery life, but in most other regards it doesn't have the hardware to measure up to the competition. The processor hasn't been upgraded from last...

Sony Xperia XZs Review

 

Sony is dishing out flagships like there's no tomorrow. Last year, the Japanese company was probably the most prolific top-of-the-line manufacturer of them all. And this year, at MWC, Sony decided to update its flagship line once more. The result were...

Great camera performance in medium and good lighting conditions ; 960 fps slow-motion video ; Well-performing LCD screen

Camera struggles in low light ; No fingerprint scanner for the US model

The Xperia XZs could have benefited from some more improvement, but it's still an okay phone.

Sony Xperia XZs review: Premium yes, but old problems remain

 

Sony Xperia XZs falls in the premium budget segment as it costs Rs 49,990. We used the Xperia XZs for nearly two weeks and here is our full review.

Sony Xperia XZs has a great camera, premium design and vivid display. Performance isn’t a problem either. However, I feel the Rs 50,000 price-tag is a little too much for a phone that heats up quickly, and is still far from perfect. Plus the outdated...

Sony Xperia XZs Review

 

The Sony Xperia XZs is an able smartphone that performs well, looks good and even has a good display. The battery life is the only real loose link, along with the fact that more powerful smartphones will be launched in India soon.

Solid, ergonomic body ; Bright, crisp display ; Good gaming performance ; Well-lit 960fps slow motion videos look stunning

Battery life not good enough

The Sony Xperia XZs may have a previous generation processor, but is still well optimised for good performance. Alongside, it presents a compact, ergonomic build, a bright and vibrant display and a fairly decent camera. The battery life is the only...

Sony Xperia XZs Review – Slow Motion at its best

 

Sony has brought us the same Xperia XZ smartphone but now with a new camera module. Its 19 MP camera now captures slow motion videos at 960fps. Hence, the name XZs where s stands for super slow motion. While the rest of the specifications came from its...

High Brightness Display ; Stylish Design ; Fast Processing Power ; Reliable Camera | Dedicated Camera trigger ; Captures Slow Motion videos at 960fps ; AR effect is Fun ; IP65/68 Certified – Dust and Water Resistant ; Stereo Loudspeakers ; MicroSD...

Heats on Load ; Super Slow Motion is limited to one second ; Average Battery Life ; Expensive

One of the best things in the smartphone is the camera and its slow motion feature. It does take wonderful pictures in the day time as well as performs well in the low light. Slow Motion works great if you are that quick to capture the one second...
