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.

T... moredefinetely, i just bought the xz2 premium because it's so cheap and i was blown away with the build quality, after using it for a while, when i back to main phone (Oppo Reno5) it feels cheap. lol. i won't swap the reno5 for xz2 premium though, but the xz2 premium is really good deal if all you want is solid a secondary phone.

This phone is amazingly cheap this year for JPN used set. The chipset snapdragon 845 is still powerful. Totally worth the money. Though my minus points for this is the battery capacity is not holding enough to use in 2021. 3540 mah can barely hold heavy games in less than 2 hours (highest graphic Genshin Impact) . But for daily use it's still okay.

more specifically i wud put it like- LG G7/V40 ThinQ vs Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium/XZ3??

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
