Score: 9.44

Sony Xperia XZ2 is a top-level phone released some years ago, provisioned with a very powerful 2800 MHz Octa-Core processor, a really big 5.7" screen, a 19 megapixels back-facing camera and a 5 megapixels front side camera.

This phone is offerred in a lot of color options like black, green, pink and silver. The Sony Xperia XZ2 isn't very light comparing with today standards, with a weight of 6.98 ounces. This device is just 6.02 inches long, but it is still able to fit a a 5.7 inches display. Although this phone is very slim it's not so slim as many other cellphones in the market, with a thickness of 0.44 inches. This device body design is a combination of Glass and Aluminum .

This cellphone is equipped with an absolutely amazing 1080 x 2160 5.7-inches screen, which makes everything look amazing.

Sony decided to equip this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SDM845 chip, holding a high-tech 2.8 GHz Octa-Core processor with a huge 4 GB of RAM memory. This cellphone counts with a 64 GB excellent internal storage memory and a slot for external memory cards, which allows the user to install hundreds of applications without worrying about how much storage is left.

This cellphone includes wi-fi connectivity (and it can provide it to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) super fast data connection and also HSPA+ data connection (which is a bit slower 4G variation) and fast 3G data connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone supports dual sim so it is able to use 2 different phone numbers and even different carriers.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 19 mega-pixels back camera and a 5 MP front camera. Its back camera has an aperture of f/2 so it can take great pictures even in low light environments. This cellphone also captures 3840x2160 4K videos at 60 frames per second, and slow-motion videos in (Full HD) (1920x1080) at 960 fps (32 times slower than reality). This device also includes time lapse video.

This phone packs a large 3180 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep this cellphone running for several hours, but you may need to charge it if you use it heavily. An issue to take into account is that the Sony Xperia XZ2's battery isn't replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to lose capacity, although with its 3180 mAh you will probably replace this device before that happens.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 also features a great numbre of interesting characteristics such as Fingerprint Reader, Wireless charging compatibility, NFC, Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Localization, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.
