The dimensions of Sony Xperia XZ Premium are 156 x 77 x 7.9 mm while the weight is 195 grams. Its weight is little heavy because it is packed with a fixed battery of 5300 mAh.

In design section, the first part is a front body in which Sony Xperia XZ Premium has 5.46 inches’ screen size while the top side has an earpiece, front camera and LED notification light.

Sony has additionally maximized the spec of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium’s camera. It has a 19MP back camera with a 1/2.3in sensor.  Your photographs regularly wind up pushing 12MB, which is entirely huge for a basic JPEG picture.

I’m not overwhelmed by the outcomes, however. Everything comes down to what Sony does with this great sounding equipment. Utilizing the Sony Xperia XZ Premium out on the town on a radiant day, it has a tendency to overexpose parts of your photographs more than the best level rivalry. Dynamic range is unmistakably more regrettable than the best, and, as before, Sony’s handling isn’t incredible.

It’s very forceful, making the common examples of grass and minor leaved trees look unnatural and, now and again, fizzy. Zoom insufficiently far and the Sony Xperia XZ Premium’s pics transform into a bizarre looking impressionist interpretation of reality now and again. Check out its camera images in SONY XPERIA XZ Premium Review.

On the front of the Xperia XZ Premium is the same selfie camera found on the first XZ and XZs, however this time it highlights self-adjust. It depends on a 13MP sensor (1/3.06″) with a f/2.0 focal point.

Remember that in Intelligent Auto the camera appears to have some kind of beautification improvement continually on so in the event that you don’t favor the impact it has all over, you may need to change to Manual mode for your selfies.

The pictures created by it are to some degree loud. Be that as it may, we’re very content with how point by point selfies turn out and we welcome the phenomenal dynamic range.

When it gets dim, in any case, quality takes a genuine plunge simply like the primary camera. Check out its camera images in SONY XPERIA XZ Premium Review.
