Positioned as an enthusiast phone just below Sony’s XPERIA XZ Premium, the new Sony XPERIA XZ1 displaces last year’s XZ model. It comes with the same 960 FPS video camera experience introduced with the XZ Premium. Designed to be price $100 below the XZ Premium, the XPERIA XZ1 is priced at $700. To achieve this, Sony is using a 1080p display and reduced the battery capacity among other small tweaks to segment its line of products. We’ve had some hands-on time with the product, here are our impressions.
