I buy this phone as japan set (SoftBank) and I cant update it to Android 10 (still Android 8), but I quite satisfied anyway. Battery life is quite impressive just by looking how small the battery it is. I managed to get Screen On Time around 6-7 hours for casual use for whole day usage and 4-6 hours if I push the phone a bit by playing games like Call of Duty, PUBG Mobile. Speaker-wise, dual speaker top and bottom quite loud for my ears , I have no complaint about it. Calling on this phone, earpiece get really loud and clear. Coverage, because I buy this phone as import set, for first time use, I can't get the coverage and it was unable to detect my local network until I check the APN and it was empty. So, I browse to website that actually show the APN for my local network and I setup all by myself. Surprise to me, the line coverage was quite good, Internet speed pretty fast for this phone. Charging took around 2 hours something but not reaching 3. Camera-wise, single lens was quite decent. I have one complaint about it, the photo comes out a bit dark but not to dark. I recommend you increase the shadow of the picture through Photoshop or Google Photo. Selfie camera was quite wide, the quality wasn't so bad consider its only 5MP. Instagram stories, not so compress to my eyes, the video came out very good. The stabilization also quite good. That's all from me :)

I used android 10, so far I haven't encountered any probs.. means what the others comment is the old one I assume. since everything works fine for me
I noticed that XZ2 compact has an issue with signal reception. The phone may perform well as a media device, however, the main function as a smartphone, ie, call and internet is kinda scarce.

Abuuu, 07 Jul 2020Will xperia XZ2 get Android 11 update Definitely No. Sony only promises 2 major updates, after that only security updates for a year or two. The xperia 1 should be the one that would get android 11 update.
