Forget shelling out thousands for a decent high-speed camera, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium smartphone not only sports a beautiful 5.5″ 4K (3840×2160) display, but has a 19-megapixel camera with an IMX300 sensor that captures video at 960FPS @ 720p. Other features include a Snapdragon 835 CPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a 3230mAh battery, along with IP68 water / dust resistance.
