Isn’t worth the lofty price of admission

Sony Xperia XZ1

from Expert Reviews
Sony’s Xperia XZ1 is an impressive mid-range handset. Aside from the 3D-imaging gimmicks, the XZ1 is still a top-class smartphone, with bang-up-to-date internals; a bright, clear display; and a design befitting of 2017’s other swish-looking handsets. But you can’t escape its towering price tag... Full review

Will have a much harder time competing

Sony Xperia XZ1

from GSMArena
The Sony Xperia XZ1 ticks quite a few right boxes, even if its upgrades are mostly incremental. The improved design, HDR screen, and performance make the XZ1 competitive if not quite class-leading. Sony fans will probably appreciate having the best form XZs and XZ Premium in one device, and those looking to try Oreo now have another option besides Nexus and Pixel phones... Full review

Media maestro and super-smart snapper combined

Sony Xperia XZ1

from Recombu
Sony’s Xperia XZ1 is one of the best phones around right now for demanding media fans and anyone after a world-class camera that slips into their pocket with ease. While this flagship may lack the gorgeous and innovative design work of Samsung’s premium devices, it’s still a good-looking and distinctive smartphone with a tough-as-nails build... Full review

A dependable smartphone for big-screen phone lovers

Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra

from Digit
Bezel-less phones have become the trend lately, and believe it or not Sony has been with it this time. The company’s Xperia XA branded smartphones have followed bezel-less form factors for a while, and this, the Xperia XA1 Ultra is the “biggest” of the lot. It has a 6-inch near bezel-less screen and Sony’s top-end 23 megapixel rear camera. In some ways, the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra has the specs down right, but then it also has some glaring flaws...

Isn’t a bad phone, but the competition makes it look overpriced

Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra

from NDTV
The Xperia XA1 Ultra is a big screen device aimed at people specifically looking for a phablet for entertainment purposes. Its big bezel-less display is ideal for watching content and playing games but could have done with some stereo speakers. We like how Sony has tuned the Helio P20 chip and the Xperia UI to deliver good battery backup but the lack of a fingerprint scanner and 4K video recording are two of the major drawbacks of this smartphone...

Manages to provide a fancy design without suffering too many losses

Sony Xperia L1

from Tech Advisor
If design and screen size are you main preoccupations, then the L1 is definitely the budget phone you need. Its resemblance to Sony’s higher range smartphones and the large screen it offers make it one of the best looking phones of its price-range. The benchmark results and general slowness when multitasking hold it back, and if you plan on using it for intense gaming or video streaming, you might be better off with something else. If not, the L1 is an attractive budget phone and should be more than enough to satisfy your basic needs.. Full review

Power and elegance

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

from LaptopMedia
This time Sony has chosen their flagship to be with a glass and not metal back, and it really looks stylish but the fingerprints on this big 5.46-inch body stop us from giving full credit as far as design is concerned. On the other hand, you will be presented with incredibly detailed display and one of the most powerful mobile chips on the market – Snapdragon 835. All this completely befits a top notch model such as Xperia XZ Premium. We can say that its battery life is good enough, and thanks to the USB Type-C and Quick Charge 4.0 technology you can benefit from quick charging... Full review

Certainly fits the bill for a high-end smartphone in 2017

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

from Gearburn
The Xperia XZ Premium is worth putting on your wishlist thanks to its sheer power and a fantastic camera experience that approaches (but doesn’t quite surpass) Samsung and Apple’s best. The slow-mo is an amazing innovation when you get it right, but hold off for the successor if this is why you want the phone... Full review
The Verge

Unworthy of its name

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

from The Verge
With its fancy mirror finish, eyebrow-raising price, and proud Sony pedigree, the Xperia XZ Premium flatters to deceive. On paper, it’s a behemoth, but in practice, it’s too much like the rest of the mainstream Android flagship pack. That’s been Sony’s problem almost since the very inception of the Xperia line, and the XZ Premium does nothing to rectify it... Full review

A nice phone for the money

Sony Xperia XA1

from Tech Advisor
We rate its clean, simple look and the way it feels in the hand, while the array of Smart Lock features and the raw specs and performance of that blockbuster rear-facing camera are impressive... Full review

I HATE this phone!

Sony Xperia T3

Always getting error messages when going online. Storage space is far too small to handling more than 2 apps. Huge waste of money!

I hate it.

Sony Xperia Z3

Overheating makes the phone frozen constantly. Not existent warranty. I had Sony in great esteem until now. Total waste of money and effort to fix this phone.

Serious memory issues...

Sony Xperia E

Basically, because the onboard memory is partitioned as phone and internal memory, and very little will use the internal memory, no app from Sony, Google, no Facebook, Twitter and so forth, you rapidly run out of space on the phone memory, while having a gig + sitting doing nothing on the internal.....

Ok, the music player is well specced, but my cheapo, entry level LG III, at half the price, which I bought the Sony to replace, runs rings round it in every other department... I gave the Sony to my partner, who uses it as a phone, which it's quite good at, and as a BBC Radio iPlayer handset, and while iPlayer seems to be one of the few apps that transfer to internal memory, it seems to store downloads on the phone memory, or both! So problems there too... Taught me to be more questioning about the internal set up of a phone, but will avoid Sony in future... Less

I finally decided to upgrade from my previous Xperia Arc due only to speed/storage issues. Being so happy with the previous Xperia, which I had for 3-1/2 years & took a beating, I decided to stick with this product line & got the Z3 Compact. In my first month, it fell out of my chest pocket while bending over at about 1'. The screen totally fractured & the phone is now useless. In searching Google, there are substantial reports of similar failures. This phone is far too fragile to last out your contract. This is nowhere near as robust as my previous. Less
I hate it kinds is slow maybe because of just 1 GB ram but over all happy with it . use a task killer and I only keep 2 process in the background that makes it little bit more faster... Over all happy with this $250 phone so I can use straight talk and get out of contract crap...

Worst phone ever on voice quality. Not recomended

Bought this phone at Windmobile, started having issues right from the first day. Lots of issues with phone line, static, inconsistent voice quality, bad speaker phone quality, when call end button pressed it would take 3 to 4 seconds to end the call.
