A really good all in all but I just can't accept they made such a thick phone and were still not able to accommodate a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Or the phone shouldn't have been this thick to begin with

I think the 18:9 display ratio trends will be the shortest trends and soon the more taller trends and notch trends will help people hate their shorter finger and thumb. XZ2 compact retain the perfect size for one hand usage and the 18:9 display ratio other 18:9 display flagships are not for one hand usages and stretching finger all day long like a dupe.
Honestly, I prefer 16:9 ratio. It is sharper than 18:9, which makes the screen longer, hence more expensive.

P20 pro, urr nah, ugly purple fringing and oversharpening really make it bad, not to mention the DR, and I not even talking about the AI mode yet, which is worse

Of course there will be more noise. Resize to 19MP any pic from Samsung or iPhone, it looks awful.
Get your phone and choose two different resolutions, the lower has less noise
Front of the Phone/Design: Quite Good
However, the back, it's a big NO NO NO, the position of the camera, flash, and curve back is yuckkkk
The reviewer basically says, 'the design doesn't suit my taste and therefore I conclude it's a bad design'.
Well, for your information, not everyone is into this no bezels craze. And remember as well that the bezels in Sony's case house the dual front facing stereo speakers. Now list to us, dear reviewer, how many of the bezel-free phones have from facing stereo speakers.
Many people just criticise for criticism sake without taking into consideration the reasons behind the choices and unfortunately GSMArena is becoming one of them. Try getting a more unbiased person on future or better still, use three or more reviewers.

Anonymous, 25 May 2018F2.0 on 1/2.3" is more than f1.8 on 1/2.5" .
Set ISO 50 on XZ2 and you will see how easy it... moreJust seen U12+ performance, its 12mp camera and it captures more detail than older xzp. Of course without noise. New xz2 is better, but that one was about last without ISP and stacking, so sw processing is in no way detail-preserving, as it does that even at low iso. New hw is getting details worthy of 19mp, but you get noise as bonus.
To put it bluntly, sw denoising on xz2 is either bad or nonexistent. All scenarios at sunny weather, iso 40. Its like sony phones are made to produce noise.
Each time they get better but still lags behind, its really interesting.
New xz2p is with f1.8 and mono sensor, so with better hw even daylight shots should have less noise. I wish someone tech them right sw denoising. Also better HDR for stills.
