While Sony's rivals Apple, LG, and Samsung have done away with bezels in their smartphone designs, it is interesting to note that the Xperia XZ1 still has thick bezels both above and below the display.

As for the front camera, the device has a 13MP sensor with a 22mm wide angle lens and an aperture of f/2.0 lens. It comes with a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer and comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack, a port which is fast becoming extinct in flagship smartphones these days. It is a dual sim device with dual standby support. According to Sony, the USP of the smartphone is said to be its 23MP rear camera and battery life, backed by a 3430mAh battery. But, the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) is missing this time also on Sony mobiles. It is further protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top of the screen.

The latest version of Android 8.0 Oreo helps to use this smartphone in a great manner. The smartphone is water resistant with the IP68 rating. The XZ1 also comes with many multimedia features on board - Clear Audio +, DSEE HX and S-Force Front Surround setup for balanced stereo sound. However, in India this price might see a slight hike.
