Sony's new flagship is the Xperia XZ Premium, and it's really lovely. It's one of those phones you don't want to touch because it's so lovely to look at. You may also not want to touch it because the damn thing is incredibly shiny, exposing fingerprints as well as any mirror. And it may not be worth buying because, well, there are just better devices out there at a lower price.
Interested in this phone? Here are a few points you need to know about Sony's best phone ever.
This is the second 4K phone, and the first with HDR
Sony debuted the 4K smartphone in 2015 with the Xperia Z5 Premium, and this year's follow-up has a better, brighter 5.5-inch 4K panel with a trick up its sleeve: HDR support.
It may be only the second phone to launch with the Snapdragon 835
Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 is one of the most anticipated updates to phone chips in a long time.
The new camera isn't all new
People don't buy phones; they buy cameras that connect to the internet. Sony understands this, and has designed its devices around the camera experience for years. But as much as it's tried to outdo the likes of Samsung, LG and Apple, it continues to come up short.
The glass backs are reflective af
Seriously, this is the most reflective phone I've ever seen. The Luminous Chrome variant is the worst offender, offering an easily-tarnished mirror finish that shows off every fingerprint.
There's still no fingerprint sensor in the U.S.
It's water resistant and dustproof
Like most Sony phones of the last few years, the Xperia XZ Premium is IP68 water resistant and dustproof. The ratings mean you can submerge the phone in up to one meter for an extended period without incurring damage. And, of course, there are no port covers to worry about.
It runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat
