Enjoy powerful performance and high-quality optics with the unlocked Sony Xperia XZs G8232 64GB Smartphone in Ice Blue. This smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 820 quad-core chipset, which incorporates two dual-core Kryo processors running at 1.6 and 2.15 GHz. Additionally; this smartphone has 4GB of RAM for efficient multi-tasking and 64GB of storage capacity, which can be expanded via the dedicated microSD card slot.

The Xperia XZs is endowed with a 5.2" IPS LCD display, which is designed to deliver life-like color reproduction with optimized image contrast, color, and sharpness thanks to HDR. The phone's Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution allows you to view vivid high definition content without pixel loss. On the rear of the phone is a 19MP camera with a 1/2.3" Exmor RS sensor for capturing bright and detailed images. For high-resolution selfies and 1080p video-chatting, the XZs is also equipped with a 13MP front camera.

Bluetooth 4.2 with aptX is built into this device for pairing with other Bluetooth-enabled devices and transmitting high-quality audio, and NFC enables easy pairing. With dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, you can enjoy high-speed wireless Internet connectivity. GPS with GLONASS is also onboard for using Google Location and Maps services. The Xperia XZs houses a non-removable 2900mAh battery, rechargeable via the reversible USB Type-C port.

19-Megapixel Motion Eye Camera with Exmor RS for Mobile Image Sensor
The Xperia XZs offers a rear camera with a large 1/2.3" 19-megapixel Exmor RS Sensor for high definition image capturing. Motion Eye enables recording at up to 960 frames per second, enabling you to capture ultra-slow-motion video in 720p HD quality. Predictive Capture buffers images a second before you hit the shutter, giving you up to four images to choose from, and Predictive Hybrid Autofocus technology anticipates motion to keep your subject in focus. A fast shutter helps reduce distortion when capturing fast-moving objects.

The Sony Exmor RS for Mobile image sensor launches in half a second and features a unique stacked structure that allows for even more light gathering ability than backside-illuminated image sensors, leading to less noise and better low light ability in a more compact size. In front of the 1/2.3" sensor is a bright f/2.0 25mm-equivalent Sony G Lens that also helps produce sharp pictures, even in low light. The Xperia XZs also features the Sony BIONZ for mobile image processor which helps eliminate noise while preserving detail even at ISO sensitivities up to 12800, or 4000 for video. Video can also be recorded at vivid 4K resolution.

The front-facing camera has a 13MP, 1/3.06" sensor with 1.12µm pixels and an f/2.0 22mm-equivalent wide-angle lens, enabling you to take self-portraits and videochat in 1080p Full HD.

Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS)
Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) allows you to lower your mobile costs when traveling while staying connected. Once your SIM cards are installed, you will be able to receive phone calls and text messages from either without needing to manually choose which one is active. When you want to make a call or send an SMS message, you can select the correct SIM card. When one SIM card is being used for a phone call, the other will not be active until you hang up. Operator charges may apply.
Android 7.1 Nougat
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 7.1 Nougat adds major productivity capabilities to the operating system in the form of a multi-window view, which allows for two apps to be placed onscreen at a time. An improved notification system allows you to interact with texts and emails right from your notification pane - without needing to open the app. Other features include file-based encryption, a Data Saver mode, the ability to scale text and icons to better suit your phone's screen, and more.
The XZs' display features TRILUMINOS technology that can produce a wider color spectrum than traditional displays. The X-Reality engine adds missing pixels, reduces noise, and enhances texture, and the Dynamic Contrast Enhancer uses adaptive tone mapping for contrast correction to reduce oversaturation.

    Xperia XZs G8232 64GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Ice Blue) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone, switched from Galaxy and I'm glad I did. Great phone so far. Switched after having several Galaxy phones over the year and definitely glad I did. Great display, easy to see even in the sun. Camera is outstanding, super slow motion feature needs a decent amount of light to work but it's been fun to use. Runs a clean version of Nougat, not a whole lot of software forced onto this phone. Run very quick, no lag, apps open fast and video streams perfectly. Call quality is good. Front speakers are great for speakerphone, podcasts, news ,etc. Music is good through the speakers but not super loud. Dedicated camera button is a nice feature. Battery life has been great so far, I usually have at least 50% remaining at the end of a day with normal to heavy use. Very pleased.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone but some gripes... I got this to replace my old Z3 since it was a great deal, the jump in performance was definitely noticeable and the camera is amazing. While I didn't really need to replace my old phone my only major disappointment with the XZs was that they removed MSC mode in favor of MTP so the transfer rate and access times are abyssmal everytime I want to move something in/out of my microSD card. There is also a fingerprint reader but not functioning for whatever reason, you can activate it by flashing firmware from another country that has it enabled. Shouldn't take more than an hour to do, it's simple and definitely worth the effort.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from battery problem for all xperia series I have to write this review to warn people about battery problem of xperia series. I've been a long time Sony fan and have been purchased Xperia Z1, Z1c, Z3, Z5, Z5c and XZs (this model). Unfortunately from Z5 and onward, all models are experiencing battery problems. The symptom is: battery drop quickly without usage, even with flight mode and wifi off. My XZs' battery lasts two days with normal usage out-of-the-box. However just after 8 months, it suddenly began to drain fast, within a week, the battery can only last half day. The same symptom happened on my Z5 and Z5c, but they started to behave like this after 15 months, which is kind of normal, but still worse than other brands. Factory reset didn't help.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beware! Great styling, good hand feel, beautiful screen. That's the good part. Here's the bad: You can buy this phone as a dual SIM OR as single SIM with expandable memory, but not both. Sony has used what is called a hybrid SIM/SD tray. The SD card spot on the tray doubles as the second SIM card slot and only one of those cards can occupy the slot. So, when I bought this phone along with a 64 gig SD card, I thought I was setting myself up with a pretty decent rig. Shame. Another shame is that Sony has removed the FM radio from its higher end Xperia lineup. All told, if I was to do it over I would opt for the Dual SIM Xperia XA Ultra for half the price but with all the aforementioned features and stick a 128 gig SD card in it. Odd choices for what was for a short time Sony's flagship phone.
