Beyond that, these phones are actually pretty strong affordable competitors to the Android Market. The Sony Xperia XZ1, and Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact have the latest Snapdragon 835 chip, 4GB of RAM, 19MP super slow mo 960fps camera and a decent 1080p LCD screen. My only concern is the 2700mAH battery – it’s a little small for a flagship of this era.
The Sony Xperia XA1 Plus (S$498) on the other hand is a decent midranger with a Helio P20, and a huge 3430mAH battery. It sounds like a great phone for people who don’t need all the latest bells and whistles – just a solid battery. We’ll be doing a hands on review of the Sony Xperia XZ1 and Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact in the future, but in the meantime check out Zack’s review of the XA1 midranger – it’s got great battery life!
