Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium review

27 August 2018
The third-gen Premium comes with Sony's first dual camera, a larger 5.8-inch display that is still 4K, and a due upgrade in the internals, all in a chunky package. Let's see if the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium is worthy of its name.

this is the most baffling question that is dragging me back from buying my next smartphone.

Ok just be honest, and let me tell you that every phone has its own advantage and disadvantage(except for iPhone they only have disadvantages). Sony was behind in cameras, but all other things are great, and that greatness remains with the betterment of camera, now Samsung and Sony has their own cons, Samsung has cleaner but less details, Sony has more noise and more details, just thats it, now its your personal preference

Anonymous, 30 Aug 2018No it doesn't. It might get slightly better results from that au... moreLet me be clear, s9 and xz2 has same daylight results, but in night xz2 has more noise and more details, s9 has cleaner image but less details, thats it, be honest

Noobsdesierriaa, 03 Sep 2018When sony use flat design sony fans said flat design is the best... moreWell just show me Samsung's curved back, and if you are talking about curved screen, than its OK not bad not good for both companies, think before talk rubbish

fingerprint is in good position for me , i have xz2 (same position like in premium model) , and it is my first phone with fingerprint on the back, and i have no problem with it. i am holding phone in lower posiition, i have smaller hands and navigation buttons are more comfortable than...

Noobsdesierriaa, 03 Sep 2018When sony use flat design sony fans said flat design is the best... moreSony use the hunchback design fit well in hand that Samsung never learn, Samsung still use the stupid slippery flat glass back cover and elongated display with uninspiring UI that doesn't help user to press the back key at bottom of the phone.

2cents, 29 Aug 2018P20 Pro in both 10MP and Night Mode absolutely ruins the night p... moreYou can't really say P20 Pro "completely erases them like they are not there", as there is some sort of dimming filter applied to the whole video and you can't tell the true brightness of those photos. I have seen plenty of samples where P20 Pro keeps highlight sections bright while preventing them from being overexposed. And as for the "dusk" photo, you don't even know how bright the actual scene was, so how can you make an assumption that XZ2 Premium is capturing the scene at correct exposure when P20 Pro isn't?

nothing-, 30 Aug 2018Oh man, I can't paste the link using my mobile. Just go to Sony ... moreNo it doesn't. It might get slightly better results from that auto tripod mode, but might if both phones were using those settings.
And you can just as easily slide over to manual on the galaxy too and still squeeze a better result

Anonymous, 29 Aug 2018Everyone claims the xz2p wins but not one example has backed that upOh man, I can't paste the link using my mobile. Just go to Sony then choose XZ2 then camera shoot out between S9 vs XZ2. I stand corrected, pixel is not included and iPhone X but we all know that S9 is better than iPhone X and Pixel 2 right? And the XZ 2 destroyed the S9 using tripod in Night shots.

Anonymous, 29 Aug 2018Everyone claims the xz2p wins but not one example has backed that upThere was a comparison made here in GSMA where they tested it with tripod in Night shot. I'll look into it and paste the link.

What the general fan looks for not the same as what is better photo quality.
A personal preference does not change what is overall objective

Anf that one tiny little thing in that link doesn't even show the victory claimed for Sony. I was just making a point
