Sony has been gradually falling behind the top brands in the smartphone industry in recent years. However, the Japanese tech giant plans to regain its market share and reputation through its latest flagship phone, the Xperia XZ2. Unveiled during the last Mobile World Congress 2018 event, the phone consists of many improvements and innovations that users have been wanting which includes a new design language, improved display, etc.
Design and Build Quality
Over the years, Sony phones have always sported the same design language, so the new look sported by the Xperia XZ2 is a much-welcomed breath of fresh air. Instead of sticking to the rectangular build and thick bezel design that has become a signature characteristic for Sony devices, the new flagship comes with curved edges and thinner bezels that gives it a look that is similar to present-day smartphones. In addition to the rounded edges, its bulged back also makes the phone more comfortable to hold in the hand. The thinner bezels also add to the overall visual appeal of the device.
Dynamic Vibration System
Another highlight that is featured on the Xperia XZ2 is the Dynamic Vibration System which is Sony’s own take on the haptic engine that Apple has placed in recent iPhones. This enables the phone to vibrate at varying intensities while you consume music, movies, and games on the phone. Moreover, you can alter the strength of the vibrations to suit your preference via the volume controls. This vibration system can also be used for notifications, enabling users to set different patterns.
It comes as a surprise that Sony, a brand that has traditionally placed high emphasis on its smartphone cameras, did not opt to go for a dual-rear camera setup for the Xperia XZ2. Despite only sporting a singular lens, the 19MP rear camera still manages to deliver decent still shots across the board. However, Sony has improved on the video-recording capabilities on the camera to a whole new level, allowing the phone to shoot in 4K HDR quality, the first smartphone in the market that is capable of this feat. The videos are incredible to say the least – colours are accurately represented and contrast ratio has improved.
On the other hand, the front camera has been dropped to 5MP to make way for the larger screen which could be a potential turn off for selfie-lovers. Despite the reduction in megapixels, the front-facing camera can still snap decent photos that can be uploaded directly to your social media accounts with minimal editing required.
Sony has always made efforts to optimise the power consumption of its smartphones by introducing innovative solutions to improve the longevity of the batteries in its phones. With a powerful 3,180mAh battery that is supported by an efficient processor, the phone should easily last through the day of usage on a single charge. The phone also features wireless charging capabilities, another first for a Sony smartphone.
