Description

Sony Xperia XZ is the flagship of the Xperia X series, and is most probably Sony's best Android phone to date. As such, it combines top-notch hardware and refined software in a premium-grade package, all with the familiar, yet distinct style Sony's handsets are known for. The build material of choice, named Alkaleido, provides durability and style. On the hardware side of things, a high-end Snapdragon chip delivers plenty of processing power. And the camera combines Sony's latest technologies for superior detail, color accuracy, and focusing precision.
