Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact review: Compact, but with plenty of punch.

Small and curvy ; Good camera ; Power-packed

Not the best for gaming ; Polycarbonate body doesn't ooze luxury ; Lacks some camera features

Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact review: the most powerful small phone in the world


The XZ2 Compact is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Just a fat sheep, one with a big booty.

So. Much. Power! ; Sharp 18:9 screen ; Good camera system ; Smooth, curved design ; Easy one-hand usage ; Fast fingerprint reader

It's thick and chunky ; No headphone jack ; Plastic backed

Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact review


A small but mighty phone to match the flagship contenders?

High-end insides ; Rich screen ; Decent camera

A bit fat ; No headphone jack ; Mostly-plastic back

Sony has packed top specs into a tiny body, if one that doesn’t seem fancy enough to match the price

Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact review


Small and powerful, but not very stylish

Solid camera ; Great performance ; Sharp screen

Feels cheaper than it is ; No headphone jack ; Selfie camera isn’t great

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is small and powerful. It's also chunky and partially plastic, so not the best choice if you want a phone that looks as good as it runs.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact review: Dinky smartphone is currently on offer


This well-equipped little phone is one of the best small form-factor handsets we've seen

Speedy performance ; New design is excellent ; Impressive 18:9 display

4K HDR video recording issues ; Pricey

There’s also a question about what the future might hold. Sony has recently been showing off new dual-camera technology, which should bring better low-light performance to its smartphone family in the not-too-distant future. The XZ2 certainly has its...

Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact


The Xperia XZ2 Compact is Sony's new mini flagship with a 5in screen, available to pre-order now. With a new design, an 18:9 display, and the ability to record 4K HDR video, this packs an awful lot into a pretty small phone at a decent price.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact review: Prime Day cuts the cost by £130


Sony is still flying the flag for small(ish) phones, and Amazon Prime Day deals have offered big discounts

Despite the slight video concerns, to me, the Sony Xperia XZ2 remains a smartphone that warrants some serious consideration. For a RRP of £529, you’re looking at a handset with performance to match the most powerful phone out there – the £739 Samsung...

Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact Review


We review the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact, a compact smartphone with 19mp camera, 5mp selfie camera, 4K video, and high-speed video recording.

The Sony Experia XZ2 Compact is capable of producing images with excellent colour reproduction, although noise can be an issue when shooting at full resolution, and when you view images at full size. The camera app is intuitive and hasn't changed much...
