Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium review: Too quirky for the mainstream


The Xperia XZ2 Premium is a capable phone that lasts all day, but most of its standout features are either unnecessary or incredibly niche. It's also very expensive and very slippery. Most people will be better served by another flagship Android phone.

Records 4K HDR video ; Fast and reliable performance ; Vibrant 4K HDR display

Slippery design ; Expensive ; Poorly located fingerprint sensor

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium review


Excellent 4K HDR display ; Takes great low light videos ; Good camera ; Day-long battery life

Slippery, bulky design ; Low fingerprint sensor placement ; Inadequate video stabilization ; Too much bloatware ; Expensive

Sony’s Xperia XZ2 Premium impresses with its low-light capabilities, but its spotlight features cater to a niche audience, and they’re not good enough to make this phone exciting to use.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium Smartphone Review


Let me entertain you - The Xperia XZ2 Premium is Sony's second attempt at a flagship device under its Xperia XZ series. The XZ2 Premium has a true Ultra-HD display, great audio features, a bright dual rear-facing camera setup and plenty of other...

color-true UHD display with HDR ; fast SoC ; wireless charging ; dust and waterproof (IP65/68) ; expandable memory ; fast Wi-Fi ; sturdy and well-crafted case ; solid dual rear-facing camera system

average GPS performance ; the display could be brighter ; slow microSD card performance ; worse battery life than its predecessor ; heavy ; no 3.5 mm jack

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium is a real heavyweight, something true both physically and regarding its hardware. Our only hardware gripe is Sony’s decision to omit a headphone jack.The UHD display should appeal to streaming junkies who want to enjoy their...

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium Review


From its 4K HDR display, to the ultra low-light capture from its camera, the Xperia XZ2 Premium is a phone on steroids, the stuff we dream about. Everything about this phone appears to be promising, but with a retail price at $999.99, it's seriously...

Gorgeous looking 4K HDR display ; Camera takes some impressive photos ; 4K HDR videos look impressive in the right situation ; Buttery performance thanks to the Snapdragon 845 ; Easy to access SIM/microSD slot

Fingerprint sensor is awkwardly placed ; Impractical to shoot photos in complete darkness ; Pretty expensive at $999.99

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium Review: The Bigger They Are…


Between its ultrasharp display and state-of-the-art dual cameras, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium represents the best of Sony's mobile technologies realized in one package. And yet, in far too many ways, it still feels like a flagship from the past.

4K HDR display ; Great low-light photos and video ; Flagship performance

Very bulky ; Portrait Mode not available at launch ; Below-average battery life ; Dated software experience ; Too expensive ; No Verizon or Sprint support ; Only 64GB of built-in storage

The range-topping Xperia XZ2 Premium adds a 4K display and dual cameras to Sony's formidable Android flagship, but the phone remains stuck in the past.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium review: A missed opportunity | Trusted Reviews


Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium review: It might have a 4K screen, high-end specs and a dual-camera system, but the XZ2 Premium is far from perfect.

Sharp display ; Excellent camera ; Swift performance

Unwieldy design makes it very hard to use and hold ; 4K screen is overkill at this size ; Terrible position of the fingerprint scanner ; It's still a 16:9 screen

Niggling flaws make the XZ2 Premium feel like a missed opportunity

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium review


Modern tech meets a dated design

Good low light photos and video ; Bold, sharp screen ; Plenty of power

Poorly positioned finger scanner ; Big and heavy ; Dated screen shape

This chunky number is not our pick of the year’s ultra-high price phones, but the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium does excel at low light video.
