About Sony Xperia XZ2 - Review, Specs + more The SONY Xperia XZ2 comes with a case that is slightly more rounded than previous models. In addition, there is a camera that entertains you with slow motion videos and 4K HDR recordings. It's a great package from SONY, and we're going to taker a closer look... Want some light gaming relief in a glass body design? The XZ2 is clearly designed for entertainment: On the display you can watch 4K movies and videos in stunning HDR quality. There is nothing in the way of high-resolution streaming on Amazon Prime Video and Netflix unfortuantely, but music fans will also get their money's worth: Bring your favourite songs over strong stereo speakers or Bluetooth headphones, which are supported with an all round improved sound. Thanks to Bluetooth 5.0, the audio signals are transmitted at high speed. Wired headphones can be connected only via an adapter, because a headphone jack is not available. Sleeker design The phone's outer casing and shape have also been redesigned, with the special feature of a curved 3D glass surface. It reflects the light so that it glows and reflects colours. On top of that, it is IP65 / 68 certified and therefore dustproof and waterproof. The smartphone is available in pink, blue, silver and black. However, be prepared for a higher weight and a fuller line: The 3rd generation is 3.2 mm and 42 g thicker and heavier than the Xperia XZ1. Large 5.7-inch display Sony is breaking new ground with the design. While the Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ are still stuck in square, the corners of the Xperia XZ2 are rounder and more beautiful. At the same time, the margins to the left and right of the display have become narrower. The 18: 9 display has Full HD resolution. It has been enlarged from 5.2 inches to 5.7 inches over its predecessors and strong hardware, more battery capacitymake it a phone worth considering. The Xperia XZ2 has powerful hardware including a current processor and 4GB of RAM. You can expand the internal memory of 64 GB via microSD card up to 400GB - something you certainly cannot do easily with iPhones! The software is based on Android 8.0 Oreo wehich comes with many pre-installed, useful apps. The battery is fixed and has a capacity of 3180 mAh. It is well within the upper range compared to competitors; indeed, it surpasses even the energy sources of competitors like the more pricey Galaxy S9 which has only a 3000 mAh battery. Multiple cameras, more fun The rear camera, the 19 megapixel sensor allows 4K recordings in HDR. In addition, you can record Super Slow Motion clips with 960 frames per second in HD or Full HD quality. The camera also captures slow-mo video at 120 frames per second. For selfies you use the 5 megapixel camera on the front. Centrally below the main camera, a fingerprint sensor is placed to unlock the screen. If you are looking at other models, then the newer Xperia XZ3 is worth a look. It retails at a higher price point, but it has some newer features. Don't forget that the XZ2 won the "Best of" MWC award in 2018. Should I buy one on contract? The XZ1 is worthy of a mention if you're on a smaller budget, but the XZ2 here presents the best value when you look at the features and the package on offer.
