What phone do you recommend, this one or the xperia xz2? almost same price in my country. I'm interested in camera and media overall plus I like big phones
The Heex, 25 Oct 2018Is it really that bad? I'm between this or the S9+, should i go for the Galaxy? I'm very famil... moreI owned an S8 which has the same camera as the S9 and the xz2 premium definitely has the better camera of the bunch especially in low light and the front facing speakers are a delight. Too bad of the 64gb memory but that 4K screen definely makes up for it, it is a 16:9 aspect ratio so you won't get those nasty black side bars when watching YouTube videos.
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2018How is the photo quality of xz2 at lowlight scenario, is it good.Wanna upload a photo i took at 2am at a tea stall just an hour ago and it really is over of the best low lights which is improved by pie alot
Snapchat (beta) on this device produces some great bokeh of objects and overall its one of the snappier phone around in android and again the reason is android pie
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2018You sure like xperia phones do you, from xz to xz2 you have them? Which one you'd recommend fo... moreThe most recent one if u want the best Sony smartphone overall as of now (same answer will be given if someone asks me recommendations from any nother brand, because that just how it works, the best will come out on the second half of the year) But, if the cameras are not that impressive, go for the XPERIA XZ2 PREMIUM. U may have sacrificed better cameras for larger bezels but in my own experience it definitely took the best photos out of all my Z and X series high-end flagships. For music, I think that ain't a issue for all of them, you'll notice some minor differences in them because of newer and better DACs in the newer chipsets, but it ain't that much of a difference. Besides, u have DSEE HX, though SABRE DACs are still the best in the business, DSEE HX is a nice touch. Gaming is based on your requirements, if u want to be able to play games like PUBG Mobile or Fortnite, I'd pick the ones with the SNAPDRAGON 835/845, SNAPDRAGON 820 is just a little too hot especially when loading up Fortnite and not even in-game yet. In the end, I believe it's your choice, to be honest u should look at other brands' smartphones too

Which one you'd recommend for a person who loves gaming, shooting photos and listening to music among xperia phones if we didn't consider its price.

When I bought it a few months back, the very first thing I did was to buy a screen protector and a case for my XPERIA XZ2, that pretty much solves the problem of the slipperiness of the smartphone as from all the reviews that came before my purchase, one of these reviews is notably GSMARENA, which I'm the most active in. I wouldn't complain about their own X-Reality Engine to be honest, it's just a image and video enhancement engine which makes photos and videos look more natural in the eye. Maybe it isn't your taste, but I like it. My experience with it is just as similar as what I get from my older Z and X series, a clean software. Until now, I consider myself a lucky person to have no issues in any of these high-end XPERIA flagships including my 2nd most recent smartphone XPERIA XZ2. Low-light photos turn out way better than what I've expected, as compared to my previous Z and X series smartphones (Obviously it will improve after every iteration, but not as much as this). Sure, they're still not the best smartphone cameras, having low-light photos that have a considerable amount of noise with good detail and colors, but I'll take this instead of some smartphone camera that takes photos with a lot of noise reduction but with soft detail and washed out colors, it's just suits my taste in low-light

I'm between this or the S9+, should i go for the Galaxy? I'm very familiar with Sony's software but I don't mind changing it if the hardware doesn't deliver.
Annoyed about its crippled dual-sim function --- My Z5 used to have both SIM cards and SD card workign together. Not any more.

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.

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...
