LG Superfan, 22 Jul 2018P20 Pro captures subject motion blur but its not as bad as real long exposure its actually minimumAhhnah...its pretty bad, every photo test you look, especially Night mode.
Imagestacking with no realtime processing cannot avoid this.
Common street night shots, the most common night photo scenario, are unusable, all full of "ghosts" on P20 Pro.
I don't know why people complain about design before apple every company launch their phone with different design see all the old nokia phone, motorola, sony and others I really want that old days because I want my phone look different then every phone in market today
all are same copy cats and when you buy new iphone 7+ or 8+ and this the same design MI A1 then what's different in both phone design.
BillyUK, 22 Jul 2018This looks like a phone from 3 years ago - those top and bottom bezels are way too thick for t... morethe phones of 3 years ago do not have 4k HDR 10-bit screens, the other phones do use technology from 3 years ago, 8-bit SDR screens and low resolutions
LG Superfan, 22 Jul 2018Yeah those curves are too much a slight would be ok but not this much and camera and fingerpri... moreI agree about the camera and fingerprint placement. Dont think it has ever been this ugly on a sony phone.
Oh the thickness is almost 12 mm. Best curves ever.
Steve, 22 Jul 2018Film making? On a crappy mobile camera? At low light? First of all mobile cameras are meant... moreActually, you don't need to lecture me that smartphone cameras are garbage when it comes to low light photo and video performance. And yes, I do own LED video lights, a camcorder and also a dSLR with several lenses including two f/1.4 prime lenses. Just because I commented that the XZ2 low light output quality is not good enough for tv viewing doesn't mean I do not want such capability in a smartphone. Certain family bonding and social situations worth capturing can sometimes present themselves when you least expect them, when you don't have your serious equipment with you. And it is those memories that I want to enjoy viewing on my 60" tv screen. If the quality is not good enough when viewed on bigger screens, I'm not upgrading. And mind you, I don't upgrade to a $1,000 phone just because its low light photo and video capability is good for mobile viewing only. I already have a smartphone that does better in low light with manual focus, selectable frame rates, manual ISO, manual white balance, manual exposure compensation and manual hi-fi audio settings.

This is an open letter and a request to the GSM Arena Team who produced this hand-on review of the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium. When you publish your full review of the phone - or even now - please let your readers know if VoLTE works with T-Mobile when using the Xperia XZ2 Premium. Or, if VoLTE works with any other United States carrier when using the Xperia XZ2 Premium.
It is unfortunately an established fact that T-Mobile, and possibly other United States carriers, are disallowing VoLTE connections when using the latest Sony phones. Until shown otherwise I have no expectations that the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium will perform differently.
4G LTE data connections may go through on applicable bands, but as soon as one makes a phone call the connection will drop to 3G or an equivalent lowered quality call connection.
Addendum: Please consider this to be my edited comment. For some reason the edit function is no longer available to make corrections to what I previously posted.

I must deeply apologize... I've been misunderstood as I was commenting with sarcasm due to some posts regarding the software processing.
I tried to pull the leg onto some folks that seemingly did not read the entire article, lol!
Congratulations for the job done, your responsability, seriousness and ethics on this forum which gives us the freedom to acquire knowledge, stay tuned for the latest news and to the possibility to express ourselves! :3

Tann Hauser, 22 Jul 2018Oh its optimised....to not capture motion blur in lowlight, at all. Thats where the only ext... moreYou wouldn't get motion blur on P20/P20 Pro as long as you stick to Auto mode. You probably should concern about 3-second-long shutter lag that occurs every single time you take a photo in dual camera mode on XZ2 Premium more.
Predictive memorys, 22 Jul 2018Remember P20Pro image quality 40MP is a mess, 10MP is slightly too small for 2018, it should b... moreThat's a funny joke considering 17MP shots from XZ2 Premium doesn't capture any more details than S9, Pixel 2 XL or P20 with 12MP sensors.
SOLD! Finally, a new flagship phone with killer specs and a killer 16:9 aspect ratio, flat display! I can finally retire my Samsung Galaxy Note 5!
NO Notch, NO 18:9 or narrower display, NO curved edge screen... NOT NOW, NOT EVER!!!
I luv this phone but it is just too huge and heavy. I'd rather stick with my XZP. ;-)
LG Superfan, 22 Jul 2018I think best is G4 (with leather back) and V30 and iPhone, Essential and Pixel are not uglyI like G2... I was going to buy it, but the lack of slot SD was big deal.
I like XZ2P design , U11 looks nice to me
