Sony Xperia XZ2 review

After a large portion of a time of a similar plan theory for its Xperia cell phones, Sony is at long last switching things up. It begins with the cream of the harvest, the Sony Xperia XZ2, which includes a plan theme the organization calls "Surrounding Flow." It's intended to accentuate bends and ergonomics — a distinct difference from the precise structures of Sony's past telephones.

The Xperia XZ2 scratches off a great deal of boxes. It has awesome execution, great battery life, and its camera is more than fit. Be that as it may, it's kept down by a couple of programming bugs, and its new structure dialect needs to return to the planning phase for somewhat more refinement.


The bezel-less pattern — where the edges encompassing a cell phone's screen are limited — commenced over a year prior, yet Sony evidently simply took note. It has at long last trimmed down those edges on the Xperia XZ2, however they're still not as thin as the vast majority of the opposition. Indeed, even the OnePlus 6, which is $270 less expensive, has more slender bezels than the XZ2. The front of the telephone is a checked enhancement over Sony's past gadgets, yet regardless it figures out how to look slightly dated among whatever remains of the cell phone advertise.

Fortunately, Sony runs contrary to the natural order of things with double forward looking stereo speakers, an exceptional sight among lead telephones. The earpiece serves as a speaker at the best, and the second speaker is not really detectable, sitting at the plain base edge beneath a Sony logo. They motivate sufficiently uproarious to hear in the bustling outside, however the sound quality is normal. Nothing pops, and bass is for all intents and purposes nonexistent. We've heard better from any semblance of the LG G7 ThinQ, and the HTC U12 Plus.

It's a 5.7-inch LCD screen on the front, with a 2,160 x 1,080 pixel goals. The screen bolsters HDR substance, and Sony's X-Reality for versatile motor can likewise upscale standard substance to HDR. We can't deny that recordings look fresh and beautiful, however when you kill this auto-upscaling highlight, the thing that matters is irrelevant.

Blacks aren't as profound as you'd find on an OLED board, yet the screen inspires sufficiently splendid to see outside. It's difficult to discover any issues with the screen here, and we think nearly everybody will be bounty fulfilled. The Xperia XZ2's showcase is ensured by Gorilla Glass 5, which is likewise on the back of the telephone.

A USB Type-C charging port sits at the base, the SIM plate is at the best, and there's no earphone jack. Every one of the catches are on the correct edge: There's a volume rocker at the best, which is a touch too high to achieve, a power catch that is excessively focused, and a screen catch at the base, which you can use in scene mode to snap some photographs. We wound up regularly rearranging the telephone in our grasp to have the capacity to achieve a portion of these catches, an issue that reaches out to the unique mark sensor on the back of the telephone.

Sony's new plan dialect needs to return to the planning phase for somewhat more refinement.

The back of the XZ2 is all glass like most cell phones nowadays, and it looks phenomenal. The edges are more slender than the inside, so the telephone carefully bends in your palm. The blaze, camera, and unique mark sensor position are symmetrical, making the back of the telephone look unimaginably advanced, maybe even automated. It is a unique mark magnet, unfortunately, and it will effectively slide off any surface — it's that tricky.

Our fundamental issue — and this might be constrained to individuals with vast hands — is that the single-focal point camera is actually where the unique mark sensor ought to be. The sensor is too low, and we continually put our finger on the camera focal point to attempt and open the telephone. It's hard to become accustomed to the lower unique finger impression sensor, since it feels unnatural. We offered it to a couple of other collaborators, with fluctuating palm sizes, and they too said the unique finger impression sensor was very low.

The Xperia XZ2 additionally feels extremely stout, and keeping in mind that it is ergonomic in the hand with its bended back, it's somewhat overwhelming (198 grams). It feels like a premium, costly telephone, yet we don't know why it should be 11.1mm thick, particularly since it just has a 3,180mAh battery. The Huawei P20 Pro has a 4,000mAh battery, and it's solitary 7.8mm thin. The thickness and weight, matched with the marginally dated front structure, makes us need to put this telephone down back on the table.

We prescribe going to a store to look at how the Xperia XZ2 feels in your grasp, since it's such an emotional ordeal. You may discover you like the catch arrangements superior to anything we do.

On a more positive note, we adore the Ash Pink shading choice of the XZ2, and you can likewise browse Deep Green, Liquid Black, and Liquid Silver. The XZ2 looks great, we simply have issues with the situation of a few catches and the unique finger impression sensor, and the telephone is excessively thick for our preferences.


We've utilized many telephones with the Snapdragon 845 — the most recent chipset from Qualcomm — and despite the fact that the Xperia XZ2 utilizes a similar processor with 4GB of RAM, it some way or another responds a lot speedier. Applications open very quickly, looking over is liquid, and amusements like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds: Mobile and Transformers: Forged to Fight keep running with no issues at all.

Here are a couple of benchmark results:

AnTuTu 3DBench: 232,414

Geekbench 4 CPU: 2,355 single-center; 8,409 multi-center

3DMark Sling Shot Extreme: 3,194 (Vulkan)

The AnTuTu score is a little lower than telephones running a similar processor, for example, the Galaxy S9, which scored 261,876, and the HTC U12 Plus, which scored 250,938. Benchmark scores don't reflect certifiable execution, however, and we observed the Xperia to be somewhat quicker than its friends. In any case, you won't experience any difficulty running a wide range of assignments on this telephone.

We observed the Xperia to be marginally quicker than its companions.

While execution might be outstanding, client encounter isn't. The Xperia XZ2 runs Android 8.0 Oreo, however Sony has its very own subject layered to finish everything. A few sections of the UI look truly dated, yet we were more irritated at the measure of application crashes we experienced. In ordinary utilization, a couple applications would simply crash and vanish from the Recents menu. We got two programming refreshes (we approached Sony what they were really going after got no reaction), which appeared to help, as we haven't seen the same number of accidents as previously. All things considered, the periodic one does spring up, which is troubling.

There are a couple Sony applications introduced, including the 3D Creator application that gives you a chance to make a 3D picture of a genuine protest or face. It's somewhat wonky, however the outcomes are shockingly conventional. You can even 3D print your virtual picture straight from your telephone. In any case, it's an element we'd never truly use outside of giving it a shot once.


One of the features — as indicated by Sony — of utilizing the Xperia XZ2 is the Dynamic Vibration System. Sony has basically expanded the span of the vibration engine — the haptics do feel quite incredible — yet vibrations currently are synchronized with sound from recordings and music.

What does that mean? When you play a YouTube video and increment or reduction the volume, you'll see an alternative to turn on Sony Dynamic Vibration, which enables you to pick a dimension of force. As the video plays, you'll feel the telephone vibrate amid specific parts; like on the off chance that somebody throws a right hook, you'll feel a vibration from the telephone to make things feel somewhat more vivid.

We genuinely don't feel any more vivid with this component on. It's completely pointless with music, since it feels like the telephone is simply always vibrating, and keeping in mind that the calculation works to perfection of making sense of minutes to offer haptic criticism with video, the real vibration does nothing for us. It's an element we quickly killed in the wake of giving it a shot for multi day.


Not at all like most cell phones nowadays, there's no double camera setup on the back of the XZ2 — you'll need to sit tight for the XZ2 Premium for that. In any case, the 19-megapixel focal point is very proficient. Photographs have great detail with precise hues, however we think the HDR highlight could be somewhat more powerful. It's a little all in or all out — now and again photographs are very much uncovered, and different occasions the camera will in general overexpose.

In mid-to low-light photographs, detail begins to endure a shot, however the outcomes are still better than average. Grain sneaks in, however it's not as observable as on some different telephones. You may wind up with a couple of foggy and fluffy photographs here, which implies you'll need to retake some photographs.

The photographs the back camera takes are a long way from the best we've seen, but on the other hand there're not the most noticeably bad by a long mile. It's normal, yet we likewise never felt like the camera encounter urged us to take more photographs, not at all like the Huawei P20 Pro or Google Pixel 2. What's exacerbates this is the camera application is somewhat drowsy to utilize. The camera screen responds rapidly, however photographs set aside some opportunity to process and show up, and propelling the camera isn't as fast as we'd like. Notwithstanding zooming into photographs, you can see subtle elements as yet stacking in.

Likewise, recall when we said the unique finger impression sensor was put too low? So is the camera. We have a considerable measure of photographs with a finger or two in the shot — particularly when we just utilize one hand. Sony should have recently moved everything somewhat higher.

There's not all that much in the method for highlights in the camera application. There is a Bokeh mode, however it's a different application you have to bounce to inside the camera application. It's bad. Photographs look definite, truly, yet the haze is muddled and messy, and we prescribe avoiding this component.

There's Super Slow Motion video, which implies you can shoot at 960 casings for each second in Full HD — a stage over the Galaxy S9. It's fun and the moderate movement looks incredible, however it's precarious to catch the correct minute since it is anything but a constant moderate movement; it can just snap a couple of moments, so timing is critical. We wish there was an auto-catch moderate movement mode like there is on the Galaxy S9.

The camera can likewise shoot in 4K HDR, and keeping in mind that recordings do look great, the camera application crashes habitually in this mode. We've even observed persistent "Mistake" pop-ups that impair the camera, requiring a restart of the telephone. Survey the 4K HDR video on the telephone is somewhat uneven, however it's fabulously nitty gritty, and you can zoom in. This element may not be worth utilizing, in light of the fact that it's untrustworthy as well as in light of the fact that you won't see a lot of a distinction in the event that you don't have a screen or PC to see 4K HDR recordings.

The 5-megapixel forward looking camera takes selfies all around ok, and there is a Pro mode for the back camera on the off chance that you need to calibrate a few settings.


The Xperia XZ2 may just have a 3,180mAh battery, yet it can last you an entire day.

The Xperia XZ2 may just have a 3,180mAh battery, yet it can last you an entire day, even with overwhelming use. With a great deal of video spilling, some music playback, a lot of picture taking, gaming, and web perusing, we finished one work day with 25 percent by 7 p.m.

Be that as it may, overall, when we weren't endeavoring to perceive how much the battery could take, we wound up with around 40 percent — in some cases more.

The telephone underpins Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 for quick charging, and there's additionally the comfort of remote charging on board.


The Xperia XZ2 costs $800, and it's accessible from Best Buy, Focus, Amazon, and BuyDig. It doesn't deal with CDMA systems, which means you won't have the capacity to utilize it on Verizon and Sprint, yet it works on T-Mobile and AT&T.

Sony offers a constrained one-year guarantee from the date of procurement, and it just covers fabricating absconds.


The Sony Xperia XZ2 completes a considerable measure well, however it doesn't show improvement over different telephones available.

Is there a superior option?

Truly. In case you're looking at the Xperia XZ2, we think you'll like the Galaxy S9 somewhat more. It's a smidgen less expensive, the camera is better, there are more highlights and a superior presentation, comparative battery life and execution, and it looks better. The Google Pixel 2 or 2 XL are additionally great alternatives, with splendid cameras, persistent programming updates, and extraordinary execution. Look at our manual for the best cell phones for additional.

To what extent will it last?

The Sony Xperia XZ2 will last over two years. Sony is generally great about programming refreshes, and the XZ2 can run the Android P beta at the present time, so we anticipate that this telephone will get Android P immediately when it takes off in the not so distant future. The telephone feels like a block, so it may have the capacity to deal with a couple of drops, yet despite everything you'll need to snatch a case for it. It is IP68 water-safe, so it can deal with some water.

Would it be a good idea for you to get it?

Truly. Yet, just in the event that you completely detest the Galaxy S9 or the Google Pixel 2. The Xperia XZ2 is a decent telephone, however we have issues with parts of its plan. While its spotlight highlights are special, they aren't things you would utilize constantly, and they don't add much profit to regular utilize.
