A few months ago the LG G6 became the first smartphone to obtain Netflix HDR certification. In this way, it was possible to play Netflix HDR content on the device. A key moment for the phone. And other phones were expected to be added to the list.
The Xperia XZ Premium already plays HDR content on Netflix
Although it has taken a while before a new smartphone has entered it. Finally there is a new phone that plays Netflix HDR content. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium has also obtained the certification.

One of the reasons why this feature is slow in reaching more devices is the scarcity of content that is available. Reason why it is likely that the high-end Samsung have not obtained such certification so far. Although it is expected that as content increases, more brands will bet on this certification.
In the case of the Xperia XZ Premium there is a difference with the LG G6. Your LG phone only plays Dolby Vision content. While the Sony phone can play both Dolby Vision and Ultra HD. That is the main difference between the two phones in this case.
For those with a Xperia XZ Premium who want to enjoy this feature, just have the latest version of the Netflix application installed . And so you can enjoy the streaming service content on your Sony device. What do you think the Sony phone gets this certification?
