I've had all the Xperia flagships since the Z1, and this one is hands down the biggest leap improvement between them all.
Absolutely everything is better but with very annoying addition which is the dumbest feature ever created by Sony, the "Dynamic Vibration System", which vibrates the phone with the music you listen to. It's an excellent idea executed very poorly. It's hardly in sync with the sound and it's not in the same frequency of the sound, so it just feels like a bumblebee is stuck inside.
The camera's specs are way higher than the results you actually get, but still better than all previous Xperias.
Does anyone use love mei case for this phone? Can this phone charge wirelessly even with the case is on.
Coming from Z5 Compact It is a leap from ram side now me feel da xperia usability experience is complete and being all rounder phone da thing you only to add is a real good case to protect it
whitehart, 06 Mar 2019Camera is very capable, especially in good light conditions. Realistic colours, high details, ... moreProbably that is because the xz2 camera is f2.0, the aperture of the camera is good in good light condition, but the light that passed through the lens at low light may not be as good as those that having higher aperture, anyway can the flash help?
Anonymous, 05 Mar 2019Tell me, how is the camera of this smartphone?Camera is very capable, especially in good light conditions. Realistic colours, high details, recognize different scenes, comfortable interface. Night shots are not that good, compared to samsung galaxy s9, but they're ok. You have 4k hdr video, super slow motion, very nice bokeh effect. I think its great camera, better than xz1 and xz premium.
whitehart, 02 Mar 2019Yes, it is. I have wireless charger, some no name brand, and it works just fine with my xz2Tell me, how is the camera of this smartphone?
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2019Can anyone tell me if this phone is compatible to other brand of wireless charging pad?Yes, it is. I have wireless charger, some no name brand, and it works just fine with my xz2
Can anyone tell me if this phone is compatible to other brand of wireless charging pad?
Gino76ph, 16 Feb 2019I am talking about the Xperia XZ2.Dark mode is not yet available idk why or maybe i dont know which developer settings to tweak
Night mode is available since android 8 or maybe android 7
Its too loud now compared to those z5 models and almost as loud as an iphone x imo
Screen flash is old now on xperia
App drawer swipe is also quite old (since android 8)
In terms of overall loudness and clarity (with a bit of bass) which one has the better speakers...the Xperia XZ2 or the OnePlus 6?
THUNDER, 15 Feb 2019are you talking all this about xz2 or s8+ cuz xz2 has all thoseI am talking about the Xperia XZ2.
+1..nothing more to say
xz2 and lag are two opposite thing and battery time is almost the best out there in flagships
easily getting 7hrs sot with 30 hrs standby and usage includes snapchat,insta and partly lte
Is there any available style touch cover case here in the Philippines, I mean the original.
I've had my Samsung Galaxy S8+ for a while and one phone that comes to mind next is the Xperia XZ2. I need to ask questions of comparison on:
1. Which has a faster fingerprint scanner?
2. Which has a louder overall speakers sound output & clarity?
3. Which is compatible/capable of fast charging?
4. Which has a lossless (or near lossless) digital zoom photo quality in the rear camera?
5. Which has an option for wide-angle selfie?
6. Which has a more natural-looking (warmer tone) selfie camera? Better portrait/bokeh?
7. Which does better image and video stabilization & better audio (higher bitrate) in video?
8. Which does better overall in low-light/night shots?
I bought mine for 375 euro, now month after worth 280 euros, Belgrade, Serbia. Noone wants Sony..
Vvvky, 05 Feb 2019You quoted iPhones people in India just buy them as status symbols. People still buy two or ev... moreWe already agreed that your country pricing for Sonys phones are too high, but as I mentioned before, It's not like that in the rest of the world. As far as I know, your country is pretty much the only country where XZ2 cost more than S9 (even S9+) and V40. In most stories I've heard and read it's the other way around.
At my place, XZ3 cost as S9, and XZ2 is much cheaper (cca 200USD cheaper). What is your point with mentioning FHD and all those disvantages? Heck.. I know some people who wouldn't buy Sony flagship even if it cost 300 USD because they don't like it :).
I know India is really a world on their own.. I mean, here I am, in country with 4 million people and Im trying to translate my valute to USD so everybody can understand me, and you are talking about pricing in only world you know - India with Indian Rupees :) Even the GSMarena has hard time with deciding what price they should put for global. Which is understandable when there is no product which cost the same all around the globe.
I mentioned iPhone Xs Max, not because his elite status, but because of their very different pricing all around the world. That was just example for you to better understand, that is not only brands fault for high pricing for each country.
So, at my place in Croatia EU, iPhone Xs Max with 64GB cost 9500kn (1450 USD). In US and Japan, that one cost 1100 USD. In Serbia (Croatian neighbours) is 170000 RSD (1640 USD). Pretty big difference for the same product. How much is that model in India?
And you didn't answer me about POCO F1, how much is it in India?
I have to agree with you on one thing. Noone with any salt in his brain, would buy XZ2 at that price. It's more that 1000 USD if I calculate right. Almost half of that price is in my country and GSMarena put ˝around 460 EUR (525 USD)˝
With such a high tax on brand from Japan it seems India has a good reason for it. It probably wants people to buy products assembled or made in India. I don't know why is V40 cheaper than XZ2, it does not makes any sense... but here I am, a simple guy from europe in a country with 4 million people talking about situation in India... lol, you can ask google why is so expensive, more than any country in the world.
AnonD-826051, 04 Feb 2019Look at the prices of iPhone XS/MAX in the world.... Where is the cheapest and where is really... moreYou quoted iPhones people in India just buy them as status symbols. People still buy two or even three generations old iPhones just for the Apple logo here in India. Regarding taxes yes they are high in India but taxes are there on Samsung and LG too but still they reatail lower in India. Taxes are just a fixed percentage on the price at which the company decides to launch. Also prices drop on Samsung and LG phones in India but the XZ2 is as it is.
Also remember it's the XZ2 not the premium variant which sensible person would buy a Sony phone with FHD display a single rear camera, 64 GB inbuilt storage at 73000 INR. The single rear camera maybe great but is it the best on smartphone ?
Also the device lacks a headphone jack so it's not even suitable for audiophiles. Seriously that high premium price has no justification.
