The 14 Differences Between iPhone 7 and Xperia XZ Premium

Apple smartphones are always compared to Android devices, especially when it comes to major releases. Of course with the imminent arrival of Sony's Xperia XZ Premium, this could not be so different. Even though they are so different, there are many points in common between the two devices and it can be very difficult to decide which one is best for you. So we made a very detailed comparison of the two and you can check the results below!

1. Templates

Like most smartphones launched today, the two phones have different models to suit more types of consumers. In this case we have the 4.7 inch iPhone 7 and 5.5 inch iPhone 7 Plus.

Already Xperia XZ Premium has a very interesting intermediate version known simply as Xperia XZ.

2. Dimensions

Of course, there are certain differences in the overall dimensions of the devices. The iPhone 7 is 138.3 mm high, 67.1 mm wide, 7.1 mm and weighs 138 g. The Xperia XZ Premium is 156 mm high, 77 mm wide, 7.9 mm thick and weighs 195 grams.

3. Display

This is a point that Apple can never quite please, especially for insisting on screens with resolution below Full HD.

On the normal iPhone 7 we have a 4.7 inch screen with a resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels (on Plus the display is 5.5 inches and a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels). On the Xperia XZ, the 5.5 inch IPS screen has a resolution of 2160 x 3840 pixels.

4. Camera

As much as Apple has done with iPhone 7 cameras, it's pretty hard to beat Xperia XZ Premium in this regard.

The iPhone has a 12 megapixel rear camera and the front is 7 megapixel. The Xperia has 19 megapixels in the rear and an impressive 13 megapixels in the front. Both smartphones are capable of recording Full HD and 4K video, and perform well in low light environments.

5. Battery

The battery of a smartphone is always a very important matter, even to ensure that you can use it all day without worry. The iPhone 7 has a battery capacity of 1960 mAh, while the Xperia XZ Premium has a capacity of 3230 mAh.

The difference is big, but as both are optimized for each smartphone, you can enjoy your loads smoothly.

6. Operating System

As we all know, iPhone 7 comes standard with iOS 10, while Xperia XZ Premium has Android Nougat 7.1. These are the latest versions of each operating system and there is still the advantage of the handsets receiving constant updates in the coming months.

Since the two systems are very different and work well, there is no way to choose one as the best and it is more a matter of personal taste.

7. Design

The design of a smartphone is also a matter of taste, but it can be said that the iPhone 7 and Xperia XZ Premium are very visually pleasing. Both have reinforced aluminum body, thicker edges on the front and proportional screens.

You can also see that none of them have undergone major design changes compared to their previous models, which should please those who already liked the old look of the handsets.

8. Storage

Storage space is another aspect that cannot be ignored on a smartphone. With the Xperia XZ Premium we have a case very similar to the Galaxy S8: there is only one 64 GB model, but there is micro SD card slot to expand the space up to an additional 256 GB.

The iPhone 7 has three options currently available: 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB. As always, there is no way to get additional space as there are no micro SD card slots.

9. Colors

A lot of people like smartphones with various color options, so there is more variety when it comes to buying your model. Unfortunately, only iPhone 7 offers this kind of color diversity today. The handset can be purchased in red, silver, black, pink and gold.

Already the Xperia XZ Premium will only be available in black and black at its release and there is no additional color information in the future.

10. Security

The safety of smartphones and the data contained in them has really become a major concern for manufacturers over the years. Fortunately, both iPhone 7 and Xperia XZ have some good security measures, either with the fingerprint sensor or the operating system itself.

11. Performance

Because their components are so different, the performance comparison of iPhone and Xperia is not so objective just in theory. Still it is worth mentioning that the iPhone 7 has the Apple A10 Fusion chip, a Quad Core CPU and 2GB of RAM, while the Xperia XZ has the Snapdragon 835 chip, 4 GB of RAM and the Adreno 540 GPU

You will be able to learn more about their performance when the Sony handset comes out and practical tests can be done.

12. Durability

As fragile as modern smartphones are with crashes and crashes, there's also no denying that they have great endurance. In this case, the iPhone 7 and Xperia XZ are dust and water resistant, and have screens that can absorb most surface scratches.

13. Availability

The iPhone 7 has been available for purchase for a few months in most parts of the world, with all its color and storage options. Already the Xperia XZ Premium is yet to be launched in June this year in several American and European countries.

There is no right date for your arrival in Brazil, but it is expected that it will not take long, because other Sony devices are very successful here.

14. Price

As we well know, the price of iPhone 7 in Brazil is very high, with the cheapest model costing around $ 3, 499 in Brazil.

Already the Xperia XZ Premium has not had its official price disclosed, but it is expected to cost more than $ 700 because of its powerful settings.
