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

The Sony Xperia XZ2 is one of the better Sony devices we've used in recent years, representing a genuine push forward in the company's design stakes.

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 - recension

 

En fantastisk mobil som kämpar för att stå ut

En hel dag av batteri från en enda laddning ; Fantastisk ljudkvalité ; Kameran är fylld med funktioner

Designen är inte lika eftertraktad som hos konkurrenter ; Dynamisk Vibration som gimmick ; Endast full HD skärm

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 vs XZ1: What's the difference?

 

Sony has unveiled its Xperia XZ2, and it's quite an upgrade over its predecessor. We compare XZ2 and XZ1 to find out what's the difference.

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...
