Sony Xperia XZ2 review: Old issues | Trusted Reviews

 

Sony Xperia XZ2 review: A good, not great phone that could do with a few more killer features. Can Sony compete with Samsung and Apple?

Pretty design ; Solid performance ; Powerful speakers

Camera not as good as rivals ; Lots of duplicate apps

Sony Xperia XZ2

 

Sony has finally jumped to 18:9 with the Xperia XZ2 but the new flagship smartphone's new design has us confused and the device struggles to keep up with rivals in some areas. Here's our full review.

Sony Xperia XZ2 review: The nearly man of modern smartphones

 

Sony falls short once again with the Xperia XZ2; it's a good phone but not a great one

On paper, there’s plenty to like about the Sony Xperia XZ2; in the flesh, alas, it’s a good deal less inspiring. The 4K HDR recording gives unsatisfactory motion capture, the 1080p slow-motion feature records clips that are too short to be practical...

Sony Xperia XZ2

 

Another in a long line of solid phones from Sony, the Xperia XZ2 is only a handful of changes away from being the best value for money flagship so far this year.

Top of the line specifications; Cleaner UI; Superb all-round camera

Slightly slippery back cover; Odd fingerprint sensor placement

The previous XZ and X devices have failed to impress somewhat, often overpriced and under specced compared to competitor offerings. This is not the case with the Sony Xperia XZ2, boasting some of the best specifications currently available on the...

Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact hands-on review

 

Unlike many of its big-brand competitors, Sony didn't shy away from major announcements at MWC 2018. In fact, it took the wrappers of a shiny new pair of flagships, that boldly marry new design concepts with incremental hardware updates.

Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact hands-on review

 

Sony packs a lot of impressive tech into the Xperia XZ2 that makes it a promising competitor to the Galaxy S9.

Good performance, specs ; Solid, refreshed design ; Super-slow-motion in 1080p is unique ; Loud speakers ; Colorful display

Sony user interface feels cluttered ; Volume rocker is too high ; Dynamic Vibration System goal of immersion is unconvincing

Sony Xperia XZ2

 

If you want to watch and record HDR video, the attractive Sony Xperia XZ2 might be just the phone for you.

Sleek design. HDR display. Fast Snapdragon 845 processor. Sharp camera with unique 3D scanning feature and 4K HDR recording.

Relatively low screen resolution. No headphone jack.

Sony gets a lot right with the Xperia XZ2. The design feels sleek and modern, it has solid multimedia capabilities, and it's no slouch in the power department. If you're drawn to its unique features like 4K HDR video recording, 3D scanning, and dynamic...

The Xperia XZ2 Is the Best Phone Sony Has Made in Years

 

The Sony that many people think of, the electronics giant that made the Walkman, the Discman, the Trinitron, all those Vaios, and even the first water-resistant phone back in 2013, it doesn't really exist anymore. Sure, the Playstation 4 is doing great...

Ridiculously strong vibration motor, solid specs and performance, slick curvy back
