    • Dust and water proof (IP68)

    Design and Display

    Over the years, Sony had stuck with the bar design but with this phone, the company decided to breath a new lease of life into the design.The chunk of bezel normally on the Xperia line of smartphones have been reduced on the Sony Xperia XZ2.

    The Loop Surface design has paved way for a more curved build made of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 under which there is aluminium for added protection. Ambient Flow is what the new design is tagged and finally it drops the 3.5mm jack like some other flagships. On the rear side the camera and the fingerprint sensor are arranged symmetrically in the middle although the fingerprint sensor is a bit far down and might be difficult to reach.

    Rather than the 4K resolution display featured in its predecessor, Sony has decided to dim it down a notch by only offering a full HD HDR display. The LCD display is 5.7-inch  and supports HDR viewing which is nice. The decision to reduce screen resolution has its advantages as the Sony Xperia XZ2 weighs less on the battery compared to a higher one.

    Battery and Camera

    As it is, the Sony Xperia XZ2 has a larger battery capacity than some of its rival flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S9. Besides, it will definitely last longer with the reduced screen resolution and the better chipset. This means that the 3, 180mAh battery will last considerably longer and also supports Qi wireless charging.

    There is an improved camera on the Sony Xperia XZ2 smartphone and the major highlights includes a 4K HDR video recording, 1080p slow motion recording which is now reduced to 3s and addition of 3D facial scan to both cameras. While this is definitely cool, you still have a 19MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera on the Sony Xperia XZ2.

    Hardware and Software

    The Sony Xperia XZ2 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC with its fastest cores clocking at 2.7GHz and an Adreno 630 GPU.

    In addition, you now have a 4GB RAM on it with a 64GB internal storage space. There’s support for a MicroSD card up to 400GB which is large enough for most users. Sony Xperia XZ2 also runs Android 8.0 Oreo with Sony’s own skin on top same as before.

    Pricing and Availability

    The Sony Xperia XZ2 smartphone is available in Nigeria in stores and online shops across the country. The price of the Sony Xperia XZ2 is around 245, 000 Naira.
