Sony Xperia XZ2


I'm a Sony Xperia user but I haven't upgraded yet. I'm still stuck with my ever reliable Sony Xperia Z1. It has been my partner in every food reviews, product launches, travel, and events. I know I have to buy a new phone soon and I have started looking for one. Should I buy a different brand or should I stay with Sony? 

At the recently concluded Camerahaus Photo Fest, my co-Sony Xperia Photography Philippines member @freemanhappybattle was given a review unit of the new Sony Xperia XZ2. Here's what he has to say.

Key Features: 

The 153x72x1.1 mm phone features a 5.7-inch 1,080×2,160-pixel (18:9) TRILUMINOS display and a stereo speaker with S-Force Front Surround sound. The videos already look and sound good but Sony has now added what it calls a dynamic vibration system to heighten the experience. 

The XZ2 design is way different than its predecessor. While the XZ1 and XZ2 each have an aluminum body with rounded edges, the latter is slightly larger and is encased on both sides with Gorilla Glass and has a curved back, making it easy for you to hold and the fingerprint sensor at the back make it easier for you to unlock the device while holding it. 

Running on Android 8.0 (Oreo), the water-resistant XZ2 uses the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, which has a clockspeed of up to 2.7 GHz. It comes 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage and can take of memory card of up to 400 GB. That is  faster and bigger in terms of speed and storage. 

The phone's main camera has 19 megapixels Motion Eye does a solid job. You can shoot in an auto or manual mode, which lets you adjust a variety of features.

On auto, the colour balance is good and the images are crisp. Even low-light photos look great.

Xperience the New Sony Xperia XZ2 for a better gaming experience and awesome images when taking photos. Do not forget the Suuuppeeerrr Slooooowww Motion Feature and 3D image creator that comes with it.

The Sony XZ2 is currently priced at Php43,999.
