Introducing the Sony Xperia XZ2

Any Android fan is sure to be excited about the brand-new Sony Xperia XZ2. After the success of the Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact, it's safe to say Sony's latest flagship is going to be a huge hit - after all it certainly sparked some excitement when it was announced at this year's MWC in Barcelona.

Packed full of the latest tech Sony has to offer, it's time to decide - is the XZ2 right for you?

Sony Xperia XZ2 Design

The Xperia XZ2 looks notably different from its predecessor, the Xperia XZ1. Upgrading the design for 2018, the XZ2 features a fluid 3D surface which Sony has fine-tuned to fit perfectly in the user's hand. Both front and back are covered in protective Gorilla Glass 5 too, for a sleek, stunning finish.

With a certified IP65/68 water and dust resistant rating, the Xperia XZ2 is more than just a beautiful piece of tech. Durable against splashes and spills, it's protected from the elements as well as any slips or scratches. With your privacy in mind, Sony has also conveniently placed a fingerprint sensor on the back, just beneath the camera.

The XZ2 is available in three colours. Choose your favourite from liquid silver, liquid black or deep green - all of which showcase a stunning glossy finish for a premium feel.

Sony Xperia XA2 Display and Audio

As for the 5.7-inch Full HD display, expect nothing less than a world-class performance from the Xperia XZ2. Just like the Xperia XZ and many of Sony's premium devices, the HDR screen uses the same technology found on Sony BRAVIA TVs, delivering exceptional colour, contrast and clarity. The TRILUMINOUS display offers 30% more colour detail than standard screens too.

Your ears are also in for a treat, with the Xperia XZ2 boasting Sony's loudest Xperia speakers yet. With S-Force Front Surround and ClearAudio+, you'll feel like you're in the studio with your favourite artists.

Following in the footsteps of other major smartphone manufacturers, improved audio is also provided via earphones, with the new USB type-C port. You can listen wirelessly via Bluetooth or use the adaptor provided in the box if you'd still like to use your regular earphones.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Power

Inside the Xperia XZ2, there's plenty of power to keep the latest Sony handset running all day long. 4GB RAM, Android Oreo and Sony's fastest processor yet are all on board - making multi-tasking a breeze. Play graphics-heavy games or stream the latest movies instantly, all with a smooth and lag-free playback.

64GB of storage space is onboard the Xperia XZ2, offering tons of room for your favourite apps and photos. Want more? If you're keen to utilise the XZ2's incredible 4K movie-recording feature, then you boost stoage via the microSD slot up to a whopping 400GB.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Battery

We can't forget about the flagship's impressive battery. Coming in at a huge 3180mAh, it can hold enough juice to get you through the day. Putting the Xperia XZ2 through its paces? You're covered with Sony's Smart Stamina mode. Automatically prompting the user to activate the energy-saving feature by intelligently predicting when you'll run out of battery, it'll cut down your energy consumption so you're never unexpectedly left without charge.

Powering up is easy with the Xperia XZ2's wireless, fast-charging capabilities (wireless charging port sold seperately). Qnovo Adaptive Charging ensures your battery isn't overworked either - monitoring its health and adjusting current levels accordingly.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Camera

A world first, the Sony Xperia XZ2 has 4K HDR movie recording on board. Now you can film like a pro, straight from your smartphone.

This ground-breaking technology delivers incredible results, and you can re-watch your favourite moments with outstanding clarity. Sony's advanced MotionEye camera means you can shoot at 960fps too, offering super slow motion in full HD.

The primary camera itself comes in at 19MP, and it's packed with Sony's best photography tech. The redesigned G Lens ensures detail and texture are captured with clarity, BIONZ for mobile processes images faster than ever before so you never miss the action and the renowned sensor Exmore RS makes predictive capture possibly.

Selfie-lovers are well catered for too. The 5MP front-facing camera features a 23mm wide-angle lens and it'll capture your best side even in low light. And with Steady Shot keeping things stable, wobble-induced blurred snaps are a thing of the past.

Sony Xperia XZ2 3D Creator

Innovative, creative and plenty of fun, every Xperia XZ2 owner is sure to love 3D Creator. Sony utilises its amazing camera to help you capture your world in 3D - just turn your camera on, point the lens at an object or person and scan it for 15 to 60 seconds. The result? Detailed, high-resolution 3D avatars you can share on social, use as a wallpaper, bring into the real world with AR Effect and even print out if you have access to a 3D printer.
