Sony has taken everything great about its last few smartphones and put them into one package for the Xperia XZ.

It's waterproof, has a premium design, a beautiful display, incredible camera tech and the best battery life we've seen on a flagship Sony phone in some time.

The 23MP sensor from the Xperia Z5 is still at play here, but it comes with a number of superior upgrades. The new autofocus means you can grab some incredible action shots that you'd struggle to recreate on any other smartphone.

It's a pricey choice for your next smartphone, but the Xperia XZ is one of the best on the market right now so it may be worth spending a little to get your hands on it.
