Sony is a rather odd smartphone maker. After its “golden age” dating back to the Xperia Z3 and earlier, it seems that every new flagship it puts out is beset by one controversy or another. While the Xperia XZ, its most high-end for this year, isn’t as contentious (except in the US), it might still end up disappointing fans, and not just because of the design. Torture Stress test expert JerryRigEverything has put the Xperia XZ to his usually battery of experiments, and the smartphone, sadly, doesn’t not survived unscathed. Or unscratched.
