📱Sony Xperia XZ2 – The ultimate 2020 Review – Best price in UAE

The ultimate 2020 Review of Sony Xperia XZ2

The Sony Xperia XZ2 is an older model, having been launched in 2018.
The overall quality of this smartphone is good; since the price is in line with that of the competitors, it is a good choice, but there are cheaper models at the same quality level.

Main results

The Sony Xperia XZ2 arrived on the market with Android 8.0.0.
This mobile phone is the new version of the Sony Xperia XZ1, already tested. In comparison, this version has a larger screen size, higher screen resolution, faster processor.
The 5.7″ screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels is much more pleasant than that of other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
One of the weaknesses of the Sony Xperia XZ2 is the low battery life: in our usage scenario, its 3180 mAh allow it to reach just 16 hours, which is below average.
The 44.6 GB of actual available internal memory (64 GB declared) may be enough to store our data, if not, we can use an SD memory card to expand the phone memory.
It suffered some minor damages in the drop test, but passed it well and can therefore be considered quite robust.
Like most models in this price range, this mobile phone is very powerful, so it can be used without problems even for high performance tasks, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: the presence of the fingerprint reader and being water resistant.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.

Camera

Sony Xperia XZ2 has a 19.2 Mp rear camera, which allows you to get good quality photos, except in low light situations where they only reach sufficiency.
This mobile phone has a 5 Mp front camera, which allows you to take pictures of just enough quality, so selfies are not exciting.

✔️ Pros

  • It is resistant to immersion in water for short periods

❌ Cons

  • Battery life is short
