Sony has a standard design pattern and XZ premium Singapore comes with the same type of design, which is not much appealing as its rival phones. The problem is not with the display but the sides of the phone are made up of plastic and are comparatively rough than being on the softer side. It has flat front and back while most of the phones nowadays have curvy designs. The front glass although gets protection with Gorilla Glass 5. The power button is rightly placed with the inbuilt button for a fingerprint scanner, which makes the phone work much speedily and easily.

The Dust and water-resistant as many other Sony Phones are, proves quite of a help when by mistake gets to dip into the water. The top and bottom body are of metal where at the bottom there is USB port and at the top is the headphone, Jack.

Although we are not a fan of the design in Sony Xperia XZ premium, we definitely liked the Display. The 4K display phone with high-end resolution is hard to be found anywhere in the market. It has the 3840 X 2160 pixel not only while watching videos but for all purposes be it browsing, running apps or other things.

However, the phone does prove as a saviour with multiple options for saving battery. The Quick charge 3.0 allows filling the battery 4X than usual.

The other ways are the Power saving modes given in the phone. The Stamina Mode reduces the phone brightness, closes several functions to save battery. This is automatically done when your battery is 15%. The other mode is the Ultra Stamina Mode, which converts your Smartphone to a basic feature phone to save those last percentage of battery.
