Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact Review

Score: 79 / 100

Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is a breath-taking Android phone released many years ago, coming with a pretty large 5-inches display, an extremely powerful Octa-Core processor clocking at 2800 MHz, a 19 MP back facing camera and a 5 MP front side camera. But let's get into a bit more detail.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is quite a compact cellphone, taking into consideration it presents a 5 inches display and it has just 5.31" long. Sony didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 5.93 ounces phone. Regarding its construction quality, this phone is majorly manufactured with Plastic and Aluminum . Sony just offers this cellphone in color 16 777 216.

Sony decided to equip the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SDM845 chip, which holds a high speed 2800 MHz Octa-Core CPU with a great 4 GB RAM. A key aspect of this cellphone is the 64 GB huge internal storage and an external SD slot, allowing you to install hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games currently available without having to worry about running out of space at all.

Sony equipped this cellphone with a spectacular 5 inches display, and a 1080 x 2160 resolution, giving this phone a unique graphical experience.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 19 MP back-facing camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera. the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact's back-facing camera lens has an aperture of f/2 so it can take impressive pictures even in poor lighting situations. It also captures videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 60 fps, and slow motion videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) up to 960 frames per second. The camera also features time lapse video.

This phone offers Wi-Fi capability (and it can provide it to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A (4G) , a really fast connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a bit slower 4G variation) and fast 3G connectivity, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact comes with two Nano SIM cards to be able to to work with two different carriers or phone numbers at the same time.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact also includes plenty of cool characteristics like Fingerprint Identification, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth cellphones, computers and accessories) and GPS Geolocation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone comes with a big capacity 2870 mAh Li - Polymer non-removable battery that provides the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact an extremely long battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact's battery is not removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to get older, whereas with such a great capacity you will probably buy a new phone before that becomes a real problem.

This phone is definitely the right choice it doesn't matter whether you will use it as a work cellphone, will use it as a gaming cellphone, want this device to take many photographs or want a phone majorly for internet broswing and social networks. When you buy this cellphone you also get USB-C to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter and Manaul , USB-C cable and Charger.
