5 things that would've made the Xperia XZ1 a better smartphone


As expected, Sony dropped a brand-new flagship at IFA 2017. Well, two actually, if you count the comfortable Compact. But back to the point at hand — the Sony Xperia XZ1 is reliably and boringly predictable. Top of the line hardware crammed in a body shape that we've seen way too much by now, with no regard for current trends in the smartphone world.

Don't get us wrong — the Xperia XZ1 is a solid phone, it really is. And we can respect the fact that Sony refuses to jump on any bandwagons and instead does its own thing. Still, here are 5 things, which we believe would've made this flagship truly better.
