  1. I don't like the large fonts and icons in XZ1. After using Samsung phone I don't wanna go back to Sony for this one reason. Can you tell me after changing the settings does XZ1 fonts and icons becomes very small? I have no access to market to see it in person that's why asking. Do you think there is any black theme which can make icons, fonts and drop down menu small?

  11. I hoped this video will spill some tips on how to reduce battery drainage! When on flight mode with WiFi on it's very decent but when I'm on WiFi and connected to the mobile network battery drains faster. For example only WiFi on whole night idle 1-2%, wifi + mobile network 6-7% over night. And I also don't think it's a good idea to be on the flight mode when there's WiFi cause it's a TELEPHONE, there are lots of people who don't use apps like whatsup and other messengers so if I'm on flight mode they won't reach me. My previous smartphone had a stronger battery life and I'm a bit frustrated by my xz1 compact..all the reviews said the battery life is excellent! It is…but only on flight mode with WiFi on, LTE spoils everything


  13. Does anyone know if I can turn on the option the make a notification sound when battery is fully changed? As on previous Sony phones, it's really helpful

  23. The Xperia flagship at MWC 2018 will likely feature a bezel less screen and OLED display, but still retaining the stereo front speakers.

    I can say it because Sony knows what they're doing and they DO listen to their customers' complaints.
    For instance, Xperias had very low volume speakers (in spite of high quality sound that they produce), and now the XZ1 has 50% more sound pressure and 40% louder than the predecessors – a hefty upgrade IMO.
    And the long-complained 4K video option as a separate app instead of being in the video recording section instead? It's now in the video recording mode and no longer a separate app.

    Like, they do take some time to adjust, but when they do, they always nail it every time.
    They removed burst shot before, but returned it immediately and now they even the AF keeps on triggering for moving subjects, as well as an upgraded slow motion that was taken on a whole new level.

    Give Sony some more time and you'll never be disappointed.

  24. Just give it to me if youre going to break it.

  25. 2700mah good or bad?

  26. we need sound test compere with the other devises

  30. Still ghosting on the screen 🙁

  31. Really curious about how the battery life is on XZ1. If this gets good mileage on the 2700 mAh battery imagine what the XZ1 compact will do. My only real issue with the two new phones from Sony is the price…

  32. Camera test Xperia Xz1 vs nokia 8

  35. My sony Xperia xz premium is a solid hp never lag n good battery life. Never regret to switch from Samsung S7.

  36. Sony will never move the speakers to reduce the bezels. Samsung focuses on design and functionality, apple on a premium feel, Huawei on price. Sony focuses on Audio and photography/videography, they have top notch camera's with high quality sensors and colour balances, loud and clear front facing speakers and a range of camera options and "gimmicks". I wouldn't expect them to change until they can fit high quality front facing speakers on a more bezel-less design.

  38. Hey. Will xperia xz get oreo update?
