For the operating system, it uses Android v6.0.1 (Marshmallow) operating system but its upgradable to v7.0 (Nougat). In terms of specs, there is no doubt that this device has all it takes to be a great productivity booster. You can do many things more effectively due to fast processing speed.

Sony Xperia XZ is equipped with 32/64 GB built-in memory (optional) so you can store your photos, videos and other files comfortably.

To support the phone’s performance during the day it relies on a non-removable Li-Ion 2900 mAh battery.
Sony Xperia XZ is an attractive smartphone although for some people the design may look a little bit stiff. It has boxy design with no curved edges so it feels less ergonomic. The good thing is it has slim body and solid build. The manufacturer claims that this device can survive submersion over 1.5 meter for 30 minutes long. It also has a beautiful 5.2″ IPS LCD screen that dominates the front panel (70.9% screen-to-body ratio). A high resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and 424 ppi pixel density seem more than enough to convince people that it has the capacity to deliver a great multimedia experience. The quality of the visuals is also enhanced by Triluminos technology and X-Reality Engine. Using Sony Xperia XZ is more enjoyable since it has a responsive touchscreen that supports multitouch up to 10 fingers. To prevent scratches on the screen, it applies Corning Gorilla Glass.
