"The XZ2 Compact is very easy to pick up from a flat table, has a secure grip, and there is no immediate danger of dropping as the sense of slipperiness is gone. We can confirm the XZ2 Compact is of a high-end build and delivers on the promised sturdiness. The metal frame is thick, the front is a very nicely looking Gorilla Glass 5, while the frosted plastic on the back is just great on touch."
I am worry the trolls come here and blah... plastic phone, you know they have the "same again" trolling skills. So I must share the Gsmarena's XZ2 compact review here.
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2018If it's 5", it's not compact, Sony.Believe me I tried it in a store and it is compact.It fits perfectly and it is beautiful at the same time.This phone would be the best compact phone if it had the same material back as his bigger brother ;D
The amount of hate Sony phones get have really gotten out of control. If am not mistaken, the performance review of this device especially the camera is extremely positive. so why so much criticism??
What is the release date in UAE? How much it will cost in terms of UAE currency? I wish Sony should have added some of the applications like MS office, notes, so that we can use the Mobile as PDA like before.
Doesn't matter the bezels or the screen ratio because the phone width is still 65mm wide and easy as previous compacts to use with one hand. this is an ideal phone size ,10 out of 10 . by the way after using cellphones for almost thirty years I became big screen HATER . yes I hate carry tv screens on my body twenty four hours a day
is there a reason sony phones get so much criticism??
or is it just hate?
After release, I hope to read opinions from people who actually have/use this phone.
Compact phones are best for me, so I'll have to choose between XZ2 Compact and IPhone 8.
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2018With 12.1 mm thickness their should put 5000mah++ battery agreed. imagine sony with 4000mah.
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2018If it's 5", it's not compact, Sony.5 inches 18:9 is as small as 4.8 inches 16:9,stop complaining please.
Dual loudest stereo speakers is the big improvement and main camera quality also has big improvement.
I have been waiting for 3 years for such a phone, well done Sony, could be better but it is the best compact with 2 SIMs in the market
Taiyo, 22 Mar 2018Sad to see the compact be lost in the sea of large phones. 5in screen though nice is to big, 4... moreif I were sony i would have kept the 4.6 inch display but reduced the bezels to 85% screen to body ratio. that would have made everyone happy. have you seen their mp3 walkmans?
Sad to see the compact be lost in the sea of large phones. 5in screen though nice is to big, 4.6in was truly the sweet spot for one handed use. I guess I will have an xz1c until further notice.
[deleted post]What buggy software are you talking about? And I got oreo a few weeks after the pixel on my xz premium. I have come across one bug and thats basically it
AnonD-274586, 18 Mar 201818:9 screen and below 74 screen to body ratio. thickness above 12 mm... and many more begger s... moreI wonder, why people have a need to critisize something they don't care for. Lack of interests in life perhaps? I don't know, but well... people...
[deleted post]What he say is true. I am pretty sure Xperia is better, S845 plus 4 or 6GB ram must be more and more powerful with lighter UI and 1080p display.
For every one complaining about the thickness... I Have Z3C which is 8.something but xz2 compact fits much better into my hand and I didn't notice that it is thicker. 12.1 is in the center of the phone, on sides it is thinner. It perfectly fits into hand, it's very nice (much nicer than on photos) and it feels very solid. I was sceptical but now I have preordered it. Weight is also noticeable, but I kinda like it, it gives me a feeling that the phone is solid and durable. Finger print sensor is much more accurate as it is bigger, location is also fine, it is always on and unlocking is very fast. Display is beautiful, very smooth with nice colours. Front speakers are also much louder with better quality. It is different phone than rest of Xperias, but I like it as it is typical Sony, they do whatever they want. Either you love it or hate it
