    About the Phone

    The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact will not only surprise you with its appearance, but it also has some decent specification attached under its hood. It has a few pros and cons:

    Pros

    • Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact has a refreshing design which deviates from Sony redundant block-like models.
    • The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact has a beautiful, sharp FullHD+ display.
    • As always, Sony has made a mark with its processor, equipping the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact with an ultra-fast Snapdragon 845 processor.
    • The cameras on the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact clicks decent shots in daylight.

    Cons:

    • The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact does not have a headphone jack.
    • The design of the phone is quite chunky.
    • The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact has a small screen, thereby limiting your immersive experience.
    • The phone has a small battery that provides poor battery backup.
    • The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact cameras have poor low-light performance.

    The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is a mixed bag, but there are more positive sides to the phone against negative ones. If you do not keep your expectations high and do not expect a futuristic phone, then the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact can be a great phone to hold and manage. Plus, it will be a great addition to your phone collection if you are a Sony fan.

    Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact comes us a much-needed modification over the Sony XZ1 Compact. Priced at Rs. 45,999, this phone is one of the smallest in the Sony XZ series but packs quite a punch in it.

    The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact Compact comes with a new design signature along with a robust performance that keeps it in the competitive game. However, in other aspects, the phone falters, especially in batteries and design. Sony has continued to have a problem with their battery, and they need to check this area in your phone production. But if you have been a Sony fan, you will not be disappointed with this set.

    The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact moves away from the block-like aesthetic and adopts a refreshing design. However, it is a bit thick at 12.1mm. The phone has a smooth curve which gives the extra girth a softer touch. It has a polished metal frame which, unfortunately, is made of plastic and hence, does not feel very premium. However, it fits comfortably in your hand and does not dig into your palms. Sony places it’s dedicated cakes button on the lower right side, and the rear panel holds the fingerprint scanner. Unfortunately, the phone, like many premium models, does not have a headphone jack. The phone, overall, is quite sturdy.

    Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact comes with a 5.0 screen with a Full HD+ resolution coming at 1080 x 2160 pixels. It has a popular 18:9 aspect ratio. It has moved forward from XZ1 Compact’s 720p. It comes with sharp colours with about a pixel density of 483ppi. The brightness is quite adequate, and you get crisp images. However, you do not get an immersive display since the screen is quite small.

     

    Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact comes with a fast Snapdragon 845 processor paired with a 4GB. It is the same processor used by Samsung Galaxy S9. The processor will help you multitask with ease. App-switching is smooth, and you will not experience any lags. You can even play modern games like Tekken, and you will not face any stutters. Overall, the phone is a beautiful performer and keeps the phone speedy and fast.

    The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact has a 19MP rear camera which is the same as its predecessor. It is a Motion Eye single-sensor camera which can shed 4K HDR videos. It can click decent phones in daylight. However, the low-light shots are dull and grainy. Sony could have improved on the low-light area better. In the front, the phone arrives with a 5MP camera which is not impressive. You do not capture enough details, and there is a bit of grain captured as well. Overall, the cameras of the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact are just passable.

    Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact comes with a weak 2870 mAh battery. This battery is quite small, and accordingly, you can barely get a whole day worth out of it. Extreme light use might squeeze out a day, but it does not bode well for the phone. However, it does come with a fast charging Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 3.0 technology, and hence, you can get decent charge with 40-50 minutes.

    The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact looks chunky and is a mixed bag. While the design may not please you, its display is quite bright, and the performance scores well. The phone is fast and can handle most tasks thrown at it. However, its display is not as immersive due to the presence of bezels. On the other hand, the phone does not have a proper battery, and the camera performance is mediocre too. Overall, if you are a Sony fan and into performance, then this phone will be right for you, though there are better phones from other brands present in the market.
