6 Things the Sony Xperia XZ Premium Can Do That Your Smartphone Probably Can’t

Your smartphone may boast a lot of features, but can it do all six of these that the Sony Xperia XZ Premium can do?

6 Things the Sony Xperia XZ Premium Can Do,
That Your Smartphone Probably Can’t

Predict Your Next Movement

The Predictive Capture feature on it’s 19mp camera tracks your subjects as they move, allowing it to predict movement & keeping your kids (or any moving subject) in focus. This will help you capture the moment without dreaded motion blur and also give you a better chance to catch that shot you wanted if you tend to pull the trigger a little too late. It’s also helpful in low light, bright light and backlit situations when getting your camera to focus on your subject might be tricky.

Create Super Slooowwww Motion Video

The 19MP main camera comes with the world’s first Motion Eye camera system. The Motion Eye feature allows you to capture super slow-motion videos. And we do mean super slow motion, as in up to 4x slower than other smartphones. Check out this video sample of our day at the beach!

*note* the super slow motion setting works best in bright light, outdoor situations.

Watch Video on a 4K HDR Display

4K isn’t just for big DSLRs and flat screen televisions. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium boasts a 4K HDR display, the first of it’s kind in a smartphone. What does this mean for you? A crisper picture with ultra high definition means more wow factor on your favorite movies, videos or YouTube stars.

Record and Playback 4K

If your phone boasts a 4K HDR Display, it had better have the technology to be able to handle 4K videos too. Which is why the Xperia XZ Premium features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Processor. This 64 bit quad core processor can handle all the 4K HDR videos but it’s also ideal for creating those super slow motion videos and even playing the latest PlayStation games via PS4 Remote Play.

Not Sweat a Little Spill

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium comes with a water-resistant design. While we wouldn’t take it swimming (and it doesn’t claim you can!) it’s nice not to worry about a splash from the kid at the pool, a little spill or some moisture in our beach bag.

Claim to Be a Truly Smart Smartphone

The Xperia XZ Premium gets smarter with use. It learns the ways you use your phone and adapts to your habits. For instance, it learns which apps you use most and automatically deactivates unused apps and clears the cache. This prevents your smartphone from becoming bogged down and keeps it performing at optimum speed. Genius!

    I think the best part about Sony smartphones is that they have so much knowledge about the camera business that they can integrate it into the phone without any issues. I like that it has artificial intelligence sort of capability to learn from the users habits and it’s good to see Sony come back into a market that only has Samsung and Apple at present. Will have to give this one a good look. Thanks
