Why the Xperia XZ2 is Sony’s best phone. Ever.

25 April 2018

The smartphone world is moving fast. Between the heavy hitters and the budget buys, you’ll never be short on choice for your next handset. In such a crowded market, how can anyone stand out?

Amidst an avalanche of me-too products, Sony have gone above and beyond to create arguably the best phone they’ve ever made. Big words, but then again, these are big stakes.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 is that phone. More than just an update, it’s been completely redesigned, revamped and rebuilt from the ground up, bringing together all of Sony’s technological swagger into one deluxe device. From the industry’s first 4K HD Slow-Motion Camera and HDTV-inspired HDR screen through to the immersive Dynamic Vibration System, this is one serious smartphone. Let’s take a closer look…

 

Bye-bye bezels!

Sony has a sleek new design with rounded edges that makes the phone feel as good in the hand as it looks. This handset is proudly ‘premium’ in the best ways, with a quality that you can feel with its curved back and slick, industrial design.  

 

A display of beauty

What good is a beautifully designed phone, if the screen doesn’t live up to it? With a full 18:9 ratio Full-HD display that uses HDR technology taken from Sony’s own line of Bravia TVs, you just know that this screen is serious. The colours don’t just pop; they explode.

Coupled with incredible contrast levels and razor-sharp resolution, your peepers are in for a treat – especially when viewing video content which is automatically HDR enhanced thanks to the pioneering AI image processor.

It’s tougher than it looks

This beauty is also a bit of a beast, boasting the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that lets you do everyday tasks with lightning speed. Apps load in no time, downloads fly through our network and you won’t have to keep obsessively closing background apps to squeeze out a little more performance.

What’s more, the device is protected by tough-as-nails Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and the back and is also dust-resistant and waterproof to IP65 and IP68 certification – the highest possible waterproof rating. That’s not to say you should take it for a swim, but if you drop it in the bath, well, no biggie.

 

The 19MP camera is picture perfect

Whether you’re a selfie snapper, social media maven or freelance filmmaker, the XZ2’s 19 megapixel rear camera features 4K recording and Super Slow Motion – making it the first and only phone to be able to capture footage at 960fps in full HD. And it looks incredible. The colours and detail are out of this world, letting you take great, professional-looking shots, whatever your skill level. You’ll also get the 3D creator app which lets you capture your world in 3D, turning people and objects into high-resolution avatars and emojis.

 

 

Speakers that shout

If you love to share the things you love, the stereo speakers on the XZ2 will do you proud. With surround sound and 20% more volume than any other Xperia device, it’s awesome for blasting out your latest lovingly curated Apple Music playlist (free with for 6 months), watching movies on the go, or huddling around with friends to watch the latest and greatest BT
Sport events (with 3 month’s free access to the BT Sport app)...Or just streaming endless YouTube cat videos – your choice.

 

Content that you can feel 

Another smartphone first, the XZ2 has a rumble-rific vibration engine (also known as the Dynamic Vibration System), which brings content to life and gives notifications more of a nudge. This haptic experience means you can actually ‘feel’ what’s on screen– whether that’s knocking down those smug piggies in Angry Birds or watching the latest action blockbuster.

 

Be one of the first

Of course, the above comes with everything you’d expect from a premium phone. Wireless charging capability, beefy battery power, face recognition and awesome accessories all come as standard. What’s not standard is how Sony have managed to knock it out of the park and bring us a new flagship phone that not only catches up with the competition, but sets the pace.
