Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Is It All Worth It?

May 01, 2017 05:00 AM EDT | Paul Urban

Sony Xperia XZ Premium will begin shipping in about a month and it does not come cheap. Anything that has "Premium" as its last name certainly amps up its price tag to even soaring heights. With this coming in with "Premium" price, is it really worth it to get one?

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium's price is comparable to other flagships. Phones from such brand are highly recognized for being highly capable and state-of-the-art, however, other more known brands offer the same features and same price range. So why go for this device when there are others offering identical features?

Well, the answer lies on the buying public, no less. While most would go for the highly recognized brands for social status, others go for the "underdog," the one that's not too popular as Apple and Samsung. Sure the Xperia name may not immediately ring a bell, but it is just as top-notch as it's more famous contemporaries as experts describe it.

The XZ Premium is reported to have a much better screen with a 5.5-inch display, 4K HDR, and the latest Snapdragon 835. Many have also expressed their intentions to wait for the "Premium" as opposed to immediately going for the XZ.

There are also incentives offered to those who pre-order such mobile handset. A bronze pink color option is not too shabby as well. It may be patterned after Apple's rose gold, but not many seem to mind.

It may be worth to pre-order especially for those who are into fine and crisp images taken by its camera. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium comes with a 19MP rear camera. It is also able to record Full HD at 960fps which is immediately considered a unique feature not found on any other handsets.

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium also has 3,230mAh battery which is able to support quick charging because of Qualcomm's QuickCharge 3.0. It is a good device and avid Sony fans are definitely the first ones to pre-order. It is also expected that many non-fans may convert as they find out the XZ Premium's advanced offerings.
