Another solid offering from Sony, the Xperia XZ sports a great camera, but unfortunately lacks the special quality needed to stand out from the rest of the flagship pack.
PROS
Well constructed body; Great all-round camera; Solid processor performance
CONS
Design a bit bland; No distinguishable extras
VERDICT
At R13 000, the Xperia XZ is priced in the same bracket as the aforementioned LG G5 and Huawei P9, not to mention the Xiaomi Mi 5 which comes in well under the R10K mark. As such, it feels like the device itself is missing that something extra to make it more appealing, The G5 for example sports a modular design, P9 integrates a Leica-certified dual lens and Mi 5 costs an almost unbelievable R8 000.
