    The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is an excellent phone with flagship performance, although the dated design may not agree with some.

    Sony has managed to turn around its mobile division after a combination of radical restructuring and favourable exchange rates. With the company finally achieving a net profit last year, it seems that the division won’t be going anywhere soon. Sometimes, firing enough employees to break even does have its benefits…

    Ever since buying out Ericsson’s share, the company strategy has slowly shifted to a focus on premium devices, dropping cheaper handset lines. The majority of their devices now cost above £300, with the Premium standing tall as the ultimate flagship. Looking at the hardware, it almost seems like Sony has created a wish-list for the ultimate smartphone. Problem is, will it just turn out to be smoke and mirrors?
