Annoyed about its crippled dual-sim function --- My Z5 used to have both SIM cards and SD card workign together. Not any more.
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2018You mean you got to be steady until it takes a good shot, it take a photo at 0.003 seconds rig... moreI've the XZ1 and I bought it cause of its camera but the pics in low light are disappointing with too much noise and lack of details due to no ois, when you zoom in you can see that. I've been using Xperia phones right from the Xperia Ray series and the camera really needs improvement other than that everything is good and the battery life is amazing.
Sam799, 22 Oct 2018Still f/2.0 without ois is a thing to worry about.You mean you got to be steady until it takes a good shot, it take a photo at 0.003 seconds right? Or I am wrong, it got hybrid autofocus.
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2018How is the photo quality of xz2 at lowlight scenario, is it good.Still f/2.0 without ois is a thing to worry about.
Nam, 21 Oct 2018How good this phone is in comparision with poco f1?
Im talking about overall performance like... moreWell im no tested a F1 but the xperiaxz2 is a really good Phone, the battery life is so good even with 3200mah a spend a whole charge with 7 and 9 hours of screen on time with a 25% of brithness, the Phone has ulta fast chargin Mode 10% to 100% in a 1hour, then the updates is not a pixel but with 2 or 3 months late u get Android pie, the audio is the better than my xperia Z5 but this speakers have something they with some heavy use starts to crack a bit IDK, and the Phone have some plus like the dynamic vibracion is very good the sensor follows the bass in videos, music, movies, is amazing Just take away of Electronic music especially Dubstep, and the cammeras are good the screen is good but if u hace some money wait a while for the Xz3 tha Phone have more battery, improve a screen search a comparision Maybe in december the Phone goles around 550 usd but i advance you search a versión with 6GB of RAM, i bought my xz2 6gb in 480usd is a gd deal
How good this phone is in comparision with poco f1?
Im talking about overall performance like how it can handle high graphic 3D games,ram management and battery life.Will it get lagged and turn hot if i play or watch video for long time like my old ass z1?
Dont really care about camera quality or back material at all
I bought the XZ2 on release in Europe and first impression was it was a good solid phone, I struggled with the curved back a bit as I thought it was just a shade too much.
I held onto the device for 6 weeks before taking a massive hit on it, selling it for half of what I paid. I have been a huge Sony fan since the "Z" was realeased, now I won't touch another.
XZ2 is an awful device, buggy software made for a terrible user experience, with random hangs and crashes. Bluetooth drops outs, very noisy images from the rear camera, I just found it to be a dreadful phone.
I would say watching videos was a great experience although the X-reality engine is the most idiotic feature I have ever seen on a mobile device.
I have owned no less that 8 Sony devices and the XZ2 will be my last, it really put me off Sony for good.
Trying to replace my old XZ with a new model. My main concerns with a phone camera are:
1. poor low light performance (front & rear cameras)
2. dreaded purple or orange tinge in low light or extreme sunny conditions
3. over and underexposure
4. unresolved details especially around the corners
5. lots of noise when zooming in (under any conditions)
6. No OIS or (the very least) EIS in both the front & rear camera. (I'm doing more 1080p videos @30 or 60fps than 4K)
7. Audio recording sounds as if the people talking have a blocked nose (mono).
8. Unnatural bland or over-contrasty colours (in Auto Mode)
9. Poorly optimised portrait shots (background blur looks artificial)
10. Jumpy or overactive autofocus.
So, Does this sounds the XZ2 can easily handle? Or go for something like the Xperia S8 (or S9)?

Played with the XZ2 yesterday Awesome phone ! Excellent display, very comfortable to hold, no problem with the weight. Took great pictures and video, luv the audio. Thinking of upgrading my old Xperia Z3 (still runs smoothly after 4 years). Not interested in the XZ3's P-OLED display as they decay where as the time tested Sony IPS LCD display lasts forever. Just going to wait till about March 2019 for the price to drop. Right now I can get one unlocked for $600 Canadian...
any update to the xz2 h296 the 6gb ram version pie update ? USA where how to get it
I've heard the XZ2 family is receiving the Pie update but along with it comes "missing" features:
NO gestures - just nav buttons
NO selfie portrait mode
NO Google lens integration in camera (I could be wrong)
Lack of themes compared to Samsung's
Are these true?
Will Samsung's alleged Experience UI 10.0 (based off 9 Pie) be a better implementation u think?
Pie generally sucks. The status bar, quick settings, recent apps and navigation buttons are bad on my pixel 3. Luckily Sony sticks with the 3 buttons and old recent apps layout. Battery seems to improve drastically. Camera is so so so much better now. Bluetooth seems to dismiss my received files notification when I turn Bluetooth off. Cant say if that's intended or bug. No issues with sony, just Google's 9.0 is just full of flaws.
after pie update fingerprint scanning isnt instant anymore, i have to try a couple of times before it unlocks, everything else has improve.
update could not install ( beta 9.0)....
14/10/2018 still no official android 9.0!
model : H8216
@GSMArena The video section of a phone should mention if the device can record HDR videos or not. The Display can support HDR, the camera can take HDR photos and record HDR videos. Support for all three should be specified in all phones. Most of the time the camera can take HDR photos, the screen might be able to display HDR, but for the camera to record HDR videos is a totally different capability.
I think Sony absolutely nailed it with the XZ2. They finally gave people what they want - good battery life with wireless charging, plus the usual excellent camera and sound quality. I can't being myself to buy one because I just know I will smash it within a week.
