Sony Xperia XZs

1 / 13

The Sony Xperia XZs was announced earlier this year at Mobile World Congress along with three other smartphones, but Sony chose to bring this particular model to India first. The Sony Xperia XZs is a slightly updated version of the Sony Xperia XZ, with the most notable change being the camera module. The Sony Xperia XZs retains all that was great about the Xperia XZ, while also bringing a higher resolution camera to the back, but most notably, it will now allow users to shoot video at 960 frames per second in 720p. Other than that, the two phones are practically identical inside and out, so is the Xperia XZs worth the premium over the Xperia XZ? More notably, does it even make sense to buy a phone running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 for Rs. 49,990?

OUR VERDICT

The Sony Xperia XZs to smartphones a feature that many have only dreamed of; the ability to shoot 960 frames per second on a smartphone. This is the first of two smartphones capable of something like this and once you have it figured out, you can create some stunning footage. Besides that, the Sony Xperia XZs is a fairly standard smartphone, with a processor that was last year’s flagship. With an older chip powering it, we find it a little difficult to justify the price tag on this gorgeous smartphone. This isn’t the kind of device that gives you an “overall, well rounded” package, but instead, charges you a premium for a unique feature set.
