Sony Xperia XZ Premium Hands On
The thought of a 4K HDR display on a mobile device sounds like a bit of overkill right? The realist within me would agree with this, however the geek in me says no, not at all.
These 2 personas clash when you see the XZ Premium‘s screen in action. WOW! This is really really good.
Natural colours and superb detail, the Premium nature of this device is very apparent.
We have the XZ Premium in the Clove offices and are testing it out to see what it is like to use on a daily basis. It has only just arrived so too early to give a full and detailed opinion, but we know you like to see all the latest smartphones just as much as us, so here is a hands on video giving you a tour and run down of some of the key features and specifications.
Our full written and video review will go into more depth and look at some of the key features such as the super slow motion video recording, but until then, enjoy!
