Review: Sony Xperia XZs
What is a Revolutionary product? When a company Showcases out of the box, and that criteria SONY has come out with flying colors with its SONY Xperia XZs. Sony Xperia
Now, what’s the particular stand out on this phone which makes the phone be the first and stand out from the rest?
Yes, we didn’t make a mistake when we wrote SLOW MOTION as it’s the first in any mobile phone and even gives professional videos a run for their money.
The videos shot are in 960FPS and what comes out are truly wonderful and worth a Dekho.
Everything comes with a slight glitch as nothing is perfect, and here too though it’s not about the hats the final result how that result is achieved as to perform that perfect shot Hand Eye coordination has to be sleek and slick otherwise the results may vary.
But all said and done whatever is available no phone has ever achieved in terms Slow Motion, in fact not even professionals have had access to such Technology so it’s definitely worth it.
Now, it’s not only Slow motion that’s it? Has phone has got everything else to make make it a complete package be it;
Rear camera of 19 megapixel and a Front camera of 13 megapixels have all the qualities you expect in a high-end product. The SONY G-LENS always makes a difference.
In the FOCAL LENGTH, SENSOR SIZE and PIXEL SIZE criteria it is very good.
DISPLAY and LOOKS
It got sturdy looks and fits in the grip and though not drop dead gorgeous but then what are Mobile covers for.
The screen size of 5.2-inch FHD is a high luminous display and maintains Sony brand standards.
The only downer is why not 6-inch screen when you are giving a first time in market technology that to which is released to video shoots then why this big bummer.
FINGER PRINT Button is on the side along with the power button, and seriously Sony could have made it a little more comfortable.
QUADCORE SNAPDRAGON 820 – Would have been great if it was a mid-range product but for a 50 thousand phone Exynos or Kirin was expected.
4GB RAM with internal storage of 64 GB which is expandable to 256 GB via a hybrid sim slot is ok acceptable.
WATER and DUST resistant is Sony’s forte.
ANDROID 7.0 out of the box has to be there in any phone period, the price shouldn’t be the issue.
BATTERY – Biggest disappointment when you are making a phone which stands alone on making videos like never before and the thing which should be last in terms of worrying is the least taken care of. Why did SONY do such a thing well either the SLOW MOTION research and it’s implementation took so much juice out of them they didn’t have any left to distribute in other aspects to keep the price point in check. But then it’s a lame excuse if there is any because the biggest concern for a mobile user is Battery, where least revolution is taking place where maybe it’s being done that way or its not in their hands and work is still on.
SHOULD YOU BUY IT?
Yes definitely if you have the bucks and want to experience slow motion aka movie style.
Had the battery been bigger and the screen larger this phone would have not only a revolutionary product but also big bucks worth.
