Cracker of a price really.

Its just like a normal credit card but you are better off using it abroad, or on EU websites.
I've owned this for 2 months. It's not without its bugs. Screen goes into menus when you're nowhere near it. Clicking onto other things (it's just clicked onto half-day through this sentence without touching the screen). When calling out the screen is often blanc with no control over plume, etc. You just have to power it down with power and volume button. I had an Experia twice before this, and for the price above I think it's decent but mine has foibles.
More bezel than phone like most Sony phones

It is a credit card from Halifax. Doesn't have any non sterling fees for purchases.

I had this phone , so I know how it sticks out of the pocket and the screen so small compared to size of the phone. Also no displayport alternate mode on usb c ,so cannot connect TV or monitor directly to phone and watch pictures and video in 4k on big screen TV like Samsung , LG or Huawei phones. The 4k screen of the phone is a gimmick as well, drains battery and clarity is poor compared to Oled screen on most new phones.

Can you watch YouTube vids in 4k on this, is it supported?

That sounds like a faulty phone, mine doesn't do that. I would get it repaired or replaced.

Have you updated the phone ? Initial software was buggy but went away after updating the software

Sorry to tell you mate but yours must be broken. I've had mine just after release and I've not experienced anything you have said. But mine is the uk variant with single sim.
Great price to spec ratio however the size of the phone is something people should think through. It's huge. Even bigger than the pixel 2 XL which gets slated for it's sheer size compared to the competition and this is even bigger. Otherwise I'd that's not an issue then a brand new phone for this price to performance is excellent. Not used a Sony since z1 and z3 though and wasn't impressed by build quality back then.

Ive had my dual sim for about 6 months or more, the only bug iv noticed is it will occasionally restart but rarely so not fussed. Moreover is, its just a meh phone, nothing special for the price at all.

Hi @rhinopaul I noticed you'd commented in the @heatt post about the phone being meh. @sam_of_london gives a few negatives, do you have any specific negatives to mention, would appreciate them.

Not really negatives as such, maybe I just expect more for my money. I came from a Z3 which I loved and couldnt put down. Yes the XZ Premium is faster, the camera appears to be better and I like the fingerprint recognition though the double tap has gone but the XZ Premium is a lot bigger, this I dont mind, I dont find it hard to handle as others mention but considering its a lot bigger the actual display size isnt much bigger. I had my Z3 for quite a few years and its still in pristine condition whereas this Premium is already showing signs , a slight scratch to the screen and a few minor chips but being Gorilla glass 5 compared to 4 on the Z3 it doesnt make sense .
I notice that my bluetooth has problems but as Ive just upgraded the pairing devices to I dont know which is at fault but never had any problems with the Z3. The MHL has also gone on the Premium so no longer able to attach to tv unless you use cast or mirroring which might be a pain when travelling.
The dual sim isnt great as you can only use a single sim with sd card or no card when using 2 sims.I only paid £290 due to an error, if I paid more it would have sent it back. Ive always been a Sony fan but would like to compare with the Samsung s9 plus.
ok, thanks for reply. Techradar state that The best smartphone right now is the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus out of 15 tested, suits big hands apparently. Some of the links on techradar are broken, but techradar.com/new…one will get you to the list. I don't know if @Mrswitch has a view?

The only view I have is that I don't think the s9 plus is the best phone you can get right now.

That imo would be the pixel 2 xl still, I hate touchwiz, it really really annoys me, I found the s9 plus slow if I'm honest, slow to load apps especially, as is usual with all Samsung products. The battery life was dire for such a new phone and bigger battery, again touchwiz drains it.

If Samsung started putting less focus on the software side, and left most of it to android/Google, then I'd have one again, but until they sort it out, I'm gonna stay clear.

The pixel 2 xl is super fast, smooth, and the camera is incomparable.

The xz premium I have never used so can't comment, but I had all z series up until the z3 and I loved them, that was until HTC tempted me with the one m7.
Does anyone know where to purchase the red version of the XZ Premium? Preferably with UK warranty. Thanks
I have had xperia models before, only cos they look premium and all, but have always been disappointed with the occasional software glitches, something I never encountered with Sam Galaxy S series. So I always return back to Galaxy S series. Currently I am considering to skip S9 and go to Nokia sirocco 8 or one of the other Chinese premium flagship phones.
