Sony Xperia XZ2


Sony Xperia XZ2 review: A good, not great phone

Pretty design ; Solid performance ; Powerful speakers

Camera not as good as rivals ; Lots of duplicate apps

A solid, but distinctly average flagship smartphone.

Sony Xperia XZ2 review: the sleeper hit of 2018?


Sony's flagship gets a radical (and much needed) redesign, as well as a few exclusive, world-first capabilities

Bold, refreshing new design ; Powerful hardware spec ; 4K, HDR video capture ; Good battery life ; 1080p super slow-mo footage

Bezels are pronounced ; 3D Creator tool is janky ; Fingerprint magnet

Sony Xperia XZ2 hands on


Sony is back with a new flagship smartphone, and it's betting big on HDR.

Sony Xperia XZ2 review: The best Sony phone in years, but is that enough to lead the flagship pack?


A fresh new design, lots of power and a great display lead the charge. But the camera experience feels muddled, while the battery life isn't that

Great design refresh ; Excellent display ; Plenty of power ; MicroSD card slot ; Some good video capture options (4K HDR)

Camera app a bit muddled ; Battery life isn't the best ; No 3.5mm jack

Sony Xperia XZ2 review


An Android comeback story with a sort of happy ending

Much-improved design ; 4K HDR video ; Powerful performance

Camera still not as good as the competition ; No headphone jack

Sony’s best handset yet offers plenty, but despite big strides forward, its competitors have still made bigger

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium review


Modern tech meets a dated design

Good low light photos and video ; Bold, sharp screen ; Plenty of power

Poorly positioned finger scanner ; Big and heavy ; Dated screen shape

This chunky number is not our pick of the year’s ultra-high price phones, but the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium does excel at low light video.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium: Everything you need to know about Sony's new smartphone offering


All the details about Sony's new phone, including UK pricing and release date

Finally, the XZ2 Premium is equipped with two cameras at the rear, as opposed to the XZ2’s single unit. This should significantly improve image quality, especially for shooting in low light. Round the front, the 13-megapixel selfie camera is also a big...

Sony Xperia XZ2 review: Can Sony’s latest flagship sink the Galaxy S9?


Sony's Xperia XZ2 brings 4K, HDR video recording to smartphones, but is this the new flagship to beat?

Excellent new design ; Superb performance ; Long-lasting battery life

Framerate issues with 4K HDR recording

That’s a shame. Not only was I impressed at the phone’s MWC launch, but at £699 the XZ2 was shaping up to be a well-priced choice. As it stands, Sony’s latest flagship doesn’t do quite enough to justify buying over Samsung’s Galaxy S9.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Review: Fresh look, brilliant camera


Sony's Xperia XZ2 flagship phone is its first premium handset of 2018, sporting a slick new design that really shakes things up. This handset surprises on many levels, but is it a worthy successor to last year's XZ1? Here's our full Xperia XZ2 review...

Fantastic camera ; Slick media machine ; Super-smooth performance

No facial recognition ; Dynamic Vibration kind of pointless

Sony’s first flagship phone of 2018 serves up a fresh new design as well as refining the overall user experience. This shiny beast doesn’t care if it’s thicker or heavier than other premium blowers. Instead it concentrates on serving up a slick media...

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.
