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.

3D Memorys, 21 Mar 2018Because the trolls are from the competitors. meh. the previous compact looks better than this (except the bezel). the latest design looks $h1tty.
people want sony to use the previous design with bezel reduction.

                  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
