Review of Xperia XZ SoftBank. Thorough explanation of the pros and cons of its functions and specifications/performances

Created date: 02/24/2018, 22:32:54, Updated date: 04/04/2020, 22:14:27

We've conducted a detailed review of the Xperia XZ SoftBank, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Xperia XZ SoftBank

Xperia XZ SoftBank's size

The Xperia XZ SoftBank is 2.8inches (72mm) wide, 5.7inches (146mm) tall, and 0.32inches (8.1mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Xperia XZ SoftBank, it weighs about 5.7oz (161g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the Xperia XZ SoftBank, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

The CPU performance of Xperia XZ SoftBank

The processing power of the Xperia XZ SoftBank is, at 2.15GHz×4(Quad core), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The Xperia XZ SoftBank has 3GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the Xperia XZ SoftBank rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

Xperia XZ SoftBank's storage capacity

The Xperia XZ SoftBank has 32GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Xperia XZ SoftBank is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Xperia XZ SoftBank's screen

The Xperia XZ SoftBank has a 5.2 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen of the Xperia XZ SoftBank is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The camera function of Xperia XZ SoftBank

The Xperia XZ SoftBank has an ultrahigh performance 23 MP main camera. This allows you to make high-quality photos and will rarely leave you wanting with regard to camera performance. This will make using your camera fun.

The Xperia XZ SoftBank is equipped with a rather powerful 13.2 MP front camera. The photos turn out quite well since they don't look grainy even when you print them out.

The battery performance of Xperia XZ SoftBank

The Xperia XZ SoftBank has a relatively large battery with 2900mAh. The Xperia XZ SoftBank has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Overall assessment of Xperia XZ SoftBank

The Xperia XZ SoftBank is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
