The Sony Xperia XZ is Sony's new 2016 flagship Android phone. Once again Sony has improved upon their camera technology with the XZ which now includes triple image sensing technology. Now you can capture the sharpest images even in challenging low light conditions.
At Clove Technology we go the extra mile to providing you with the latest technology.
Like our other smartphones, this is an official UK version of the Xperia XZ, including 3pin UK mains charger, 24 month Sony warranty and is unlocked for use on all UK & European networks with a nano SIM card.
This model is also certified for use on global GSM and data networks, please check the specifications for LTE support outside of Europe.
The Sony Xperia XZ will be available with 32GB of main storage in Mineral Black, Forest Blue and Platinum colour options.
Sony wanted to ensure the whole X family boast amazing cameras. Previous flagships from Sony all had brilliant cameras and, through great innovation, they have made the XZ and X Compact even better.
The introduction of triple image sensing and laser autofocus makes it easier to capture sharp photos even in low light. A new RGB-IR sensor has been added as well, this in real terms means you can capture true-to-life colours with the XZ.
A good camera is very important for many users now, whether it be for your social media, for those memories or for work. Having a camera that you can rely on is often a feature that can make or break a flagship device.
For the XZ Sony have ensured you will get the best out of your camera, so you will never have to worry about blurry or washed out photos. Therefore whatever you use your smartphone camera for, this device won’t let you down.
Sony are usually the front runners when it comes to hardware in cameras. Their lenses are often used by other manufacturers which goes to show how good they are. However you also need great software to accompany the hardware.
Sony have delivered in the software department and moved from Hybrid Autofocus to Laser Autofocus. The key advantage to laser autofocus is that it delivers brilliant low light focusing.
This means that whatever time of day or lighting conditions you have your shots should never be blurry.
There is also a Touch Capture function which lets you tap anywhere on the screen to immediately focus and take the shot, all in one single gesture.
Sony have also included Clear Image Zoom - a 5x lossless digital zoom function. This enlarges your view without the usual noise and blurring found with digital zooms.
Making an industry leading camera is no easy feat, but Sony have the expertise to deliver in this department year in year out.
Their 23 Megapixel 1/2.3” Exmor RS™ For Mobile sensor from the Z5 series has been included in this new range. Combine this with the added software features and you have a powerful camera in your hands.
Sony's G Lens incorporates a wide-angle 24mm lens - this takes in more light than competitors and allows you to frame wide shots with ease.
If you thought new phones were all about specifications then think again. Sony have also worked hard to provide a suite of interesting features to play with and accentuate the camera.
The AR Effect mode is great for silly editing - add stickers, doodles and messages, with extra packs available to download from Sony.
Similarly, AR Mask makes use of face-detection so you can swap faces around or cover them with masks before taking the shot - great for having some fun with selfies and group pictures.
Movie Creator can flick through the stored pictures on your phone and create a customisable slideshow based on their date or location when taken. There's also a host of post-editing tools to improve the look of any picture. How about trying the Style Portait mode to edit faces during or after the picture.
Intelligent Auto mode automatically picks a suitable preset scene from dozens, all depending on current environmental factors. There's scope for editing here too; you can modify scenes or individual settings to inject some personality in your pictures.
Lastly - launch the camera swiftly via a dedicated hardware button. Perfect for accessing the camera quickly when you may be doing something else, it also offers tactile control when taking a picture, removing your hand or finger from the screen.
The latest software from Android comes preloaded on the Xperia X series and with it arrives a host of great features that improve the user interface and user experience.
One main software change is Android 6.0 Marshmallow's new ‘Now on Tap’ feature. All you need to do is just touch and hold the home button of your device and information – as well as apps – will appear depending on what you're reading, watching or listening to.
There have also been improvements in battery optimisation with a new feature called ‘Doze’ and a new app standby aspect. Doze automatically puts your device into a sleep slate so it can save battery when the device isn’t in use. Combine this with smarter app standby control which means seldom used apps are not draining you power, then you can see some significant battery improvements with Android 6.0.
These are just a few of the features, to explore all the enhancements that Google have brought with Marshmallow check out this link - https://goo.gl/SmgMlN
Android Device Manager has provided remote security in Android for some time, although Sony have built on this with their own Xperia protection systems.
If you connect your XZ to a PC or Mac you will be prompted to install the Xperia companion software. Once connected, as long as your phone is turned on, you can locate it, make it ring, display a message or even factory wipe it.
Best of all you can even ensure the phone is totally locked down if stolen, making it impossible to to be unlocked, wiped or information retrieved without access to your personal credentials.
For some final security, make use of the fingerprint sensor, built into the redesigned power button on the phone's right side. With this, no-one other than you or trusted others can unlock your phone.
The 5.2" Full HD 1080 x 1920p provides high quality colour reproduction and viewing angles, and helps to save on battery life when compared to larger, more resource-hungry devices.
Those after something a little smaller in form factor and easier to use with one hand might be interested in the X Compact.
Raw processing power is handled by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820, a state of the art chipset with Adreno 530 GPU. This is all helped by 3GB of RAM.
The powerful combination will create a brilliant experience for power users, allowing for deep multitasking as well as delivering powerful 3D graphics. Combine this with the sharp full HD screen and you have a device which is perfect for enterprise, gaming and just about anything you can throw at it.
As with any top of the range smartphone, you can expect a full range of connectivity options from dual-band Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct Miracast streaming and content sharing, assisted GPS with GLONASS and Beidou support, Bluetooth 4.1, and NFC for one-touchpairing and payments.
Currently the industry leaders in the global console market, PS4 Remote Play allows you to stream content from your PS4 directly to your phone screen.
This can be anything from stored videos or music to fully installed PS4 games!
If someone else needs the TV, you can continue the action on your Xperia XZ smartphone.
The Dualshock 4 controller can be paired directly to any Xperia Z range device, and you can use the GCM10 Game Control Mount to hold the phone in a comfortable playing position.
Note - for best performance, PS4 Remote Play is recommended to be run on the same network, with the PS4 system having a wired LAN connection to the Internet.

"I have bought this device from clove, I love Sony but this device.. from my point of view is the best ever made, I'm very happy with this smartphone and fast delivery made by Clove."Andrew
"My first transition from a Lumia 1020 to a Xperia XZ as I have always wanted a Xperia phone and Sony has probably the best design out there hands down. The screen on XZ was brilliant as the IPS display is just an absolute stunner even though it is only 1080p. Battery performance was I would say is pretty outstanding as well as it would easily last me a whole day and possibly 2 days on a full charge. Definitely no regrets on this purchase and kudos to Clove for fulfilling the shipment professionally. Just can't wait for my Xperia sctf cover now :)"tzldzl
"One word, underdog.
I used iphones for more than 6 years and never believed in android due to my experience with samsung s3 which was horrible! but now with the Sony Xperia XZ, well, I just love it, the design, hardware and software, the simplicity of android integration. the camera, and speakers, beautifully done. Bravo Sony.
If you're looking for a super computer in your pocket, look somewhere else!"
"Just got it this morning, transferred everything over. coming from a Xperia Z1, and having tried Samsung and LG in between also. Great phone, fast, camera is incredible also!!! First time ever ordering from overseas also, Clove was great from start to finish with the purchase!! Will definitely buy from them again. Only downside is that Sony has completely pulled out their service, sales and support here in Canada. Still have a little to do in the U.S. though. Can't even get accessories for this Xperia XZ shipped to me from the states!! Might be my last Sony if they can't get their thoughts together."Aditya (Glasgow)
"One of the best phone available in the market."
