The best Sony Xperia XZ1 deals in January 2021

We've gathered up the cheapest Xperia XZ1 deals on the market - you can grab a contract deal for less than £20 a month, which we think is pretty impressive for a new mobile still in relative infancy. And it only got cheaper when the Sony Xperia XZ3 arrived.

The Sony Xperia XZ1 was one of the best devices the Japanese company had ever created on release - even if the name doesn't exactly inspire adoration. It took on the big guns at the time of the iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 by toting a dust and water resistant design, packs a HDR display that means video will look fantastic.

Solid but a little unspectacular

Resolution: 1080 x 1920
Rear camera: 19MP
Weight: 155g
OS: Android 8 Oreo
Storage: 64GB
Battery: 2700mAh
Reasons to buy
+Dust- and water-resistant +HDR display great for video+First phone with Android 8 Oreo
Reasons to avoid
-Dated and bezel-heavy design

Sony kept its design language of the past few years with the Xperia XZ1 (the Sony Xperia XZ2 is more of a departure), but it feels much more premium than recent iterations. It features a 5.2-inch Full HD display that is capable of HDR, which means supported content from the likes of Amazon, Netflix and YouTube look fantastically bright and clear on the phone screen.

It packs the latest Snapdragon 835 processor alongside 4GB of RAM that will mean you can push your phone to do anything you expect to on a smartphone, plus the predictive autofocus-toting 19MP camera is also impressive, especially if you deep dive into the manual mode provided by Sony.
