Our Gadget of the Week is the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Sony’s newest flagship device. Looking to compete with the giants within the Smartphone market, Sony have decided to pack this device to the brim with top-end technology, encased in a sleek and beautifully designed shell.
The specific unique feature of this device is something Sony call “Motion Eye”. The XZ Premium can record video at an astonishing 960 frames per second, meaning you can record in super slow motion and Sony state this is 4x slower than any other Smartphone on the market today. Great for anyone that loves to shoot video on their Phone.
Sony also have the ability to boast that the XZ Premium is the first smartphone with 4K HDR technology, giving an unparalleled viewing experience compared to any device on the market today. Coupled with the cutting edge G Lens and Exmor RS Mobile Sensor in the Camera, you can shoot and view extremely high quality images.
Utilising the extremely fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, this is Sony’s most powerful smartphone to date. Built using the ultra-durable Corning Gorilla Glass 5, it is strong, dust-proof and water-resistant, meaning it is pretty much life-resistant.
With the smooth and sleek glass design, the Xperia XZ Premium is elegant and ergonomic, with the stylish exterior synchronising beautifully with the high-spec Technology within.
Just using the XZ Premium is a very user friendly experience. Navigating menus is super-fast, and the device fits very nicely and snugly in your hand.
