Many discounts and promotions on Mobile Phones will be included in the tariff pricing structure.

Tariffs featuring 'unlimited' allowances may be subject to traffic management or fair usage policies. Please see our guide for more information on how this works.

Our Sony Xperia XZ1 Review

The Sony Xperia XZ1 takes all the best qualities of Sony’s smartphone line and improves them with a sharper screen, powerful processor and an even better camera. The XZ1 is an Android device that finally gives Samsung a run for its money. 

Contract, PAYG or SIM Only? 

As the Xperia XZ1 is the latest of Sony’s smartphones, it demands a higher price. Buying it outright will cost you around £550 - cheaper than other smartphones but still not really worth buying on its own. Getting a Pay Monthly contract will allow you to cover the cost of the phone alongside your minutes, texts and mobile data.


The Xperia XZ1 features a High Dynamic Range (HDR) display, giving new life to all the content you experience on your phone. Using HDR, colours will be brighter and images more true to life - a great compliment to the XZ1’s powerful camera. The XZ1 also allows you to stream your favourite shows and movies in stunning HDR, using the same technology as Sony’s Bravia TV line. Netflix and Amazon Prime are both supported, making watching shows on the go better than before.


The camera on the XZ1 is one of the best seen on any smartphone to date. The phone uses Motion Eye technology, meaning it can capture footage in super slow motion when taking video. You’ll also be able to take photos with next-level detail, producing image quality you won’t find on other devices. 

The Predictive Capture function automatically starts buffering images seconds before you press the button, meaning you can choose from four different versions of the same photo, giving you more options than ever. This, combined with the improved light sensors and super-sharp motion shots, make the XZ1 the phone of choice for photographers.


The XZ1 features a seamless metal body, giving the phone an understated look and a refined feel. The phone’s metal loop surface gives it elegant curves on the sides and diamond-cut edges on the bottom, making it a pleasure to hold when you’re using it. The phone also comes in a variety of colours inspired by nature, including Moonlite Blue, Warm Silver, Venus Pink and Black. Users can also make use of the phone’s water and dustproof build, as well as a screen made from Corning Gorilla Glass - the toughest glass available for a phone. 


Whether you’re browsing the web or playing the latest high-tech mobile games, the XZ1 won’t let you down when you need it the most. The phone uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, making it one of the fastest and most powerful units on the market. This will allow you to stream content faster and switch between different apps without slowdown. Users can also make use of increased storage using a micro SD, with up to 256GB available so you can fill your phone with photos and videos. 

Features & OS

The XZ1 runs on Oreo, the latest version of Android, giving it a fast and smooth performance across the board. Android is the world’s most popular mobile OS, meaning that it’s constantly supported by Google. Users can download apps from the Google Play Store and manage the full suite of Google Apps, such as Gmail, Docs and Maps. 

Gamers will also love the connectivity with Sony’s PlayStation 4 console, with owners able to stream gameplay from their console straight to their phone via the internet. Just pair the phone with your PS4 and controller and you’ll be gaming away from the TV - handy if others are watching a show. 

What we think

The Sony Xperia XZ1 is the best Sony smartphone yet. Users can enjoy the stunning display mixed with the powerful camera to create the best photos on a smartphone, complemented by the fast and smooth processor and the stylish design.
