Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact review

17 March 2018
It's once again peak smartphone season and Sony is next to join the annual spring race. But while others do regular and plus-size models, Sony, as usual, is going towards the other end of the spectrum with the new Xperia XZ2 Compact.

sony phones are good their build quality,battery,screen and durability all is decent especially this time their design language is quite good and new and i liked their arc design my only complain is with their camera department compare to google,samsung and apple they are bullshit especially noise processing. to fight this issue they have to re-strategist their price point.

"Excellent daylight and low-light image quality in high resolution"
Sorry, but no. daylight images are all underexposed, very dark. All images are very noisy, even at ISO 50. Feels like no noise reduction. Straight to oversharp with all noise. AWB is wrong in most times.

This are all software issues. But as history shows, likely they won't listen to customers and they won't be releasing any fixes to already released/announced devices.

Btw, why no wide angle 16:9 images in review?

How come you are here with this stupid explanation anyway? Are these phones too important for you? :)

Anyway, the new phones have all the things that should be in a phone except for the headphone jack and a design language which is definitely not attractive. Especially, when most of the people who bought an xperia was because it was nothing like other soap-shaped devices. :/

Just used this phone in black in tmobile. I was very sceptic about the design and thickness ( I have z5c) but this phone really does look amazing and it's still very compact. It feels very well made and solid. Screen is great, it's snappy... I placed my pre order after 3 minutes

xXENDER FREAKXx, 21 Mar 2018It's always some blind fanboys arguing with haters and trol... moreActually it is because Sony has the most rabid fans bar none.

They also happen to make some of the worst phones out there, so when someone talks truth and sense , fanboys get triggered.

Sony does not have haters any more than any other phone company. If anything every company would of been bashed if they were to release a phone with a thick banana back.

The only dfference is that fanboys would protect Sony over anything... Thanfully their numbers are low, so Sony mobile is surely to close shop sooner than later, but it does perplex me to know/see how many fanboys are still falling to protect this compnay,

I mean last year's XZ premium was easily the worst flagship on most important metrics, yet it still got to 1000+ comments with fanboys safeguarding it. There is no dobut that it is/was a 5/10 phone yet they were arguing that it is a 9-10/10 phone. Who are they kidding?

MikeU, 20 Mar 2018The comments here outnumber those for the Samsung S9+ revie... moreIt's always some blind fanboys arguing with haters and trolls. Clash of fanboys and haters sending shots at each other, and u know how many accounts some trolls have, they spam there, this is always the case when it comes to articles talking about Sony smartphones...
