Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact hit the store shelves in Europe

Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact hit the store shelves in Europe
Both Sony's high-end smartphones, the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact went on pre-order in Europe last month, and many retailers claimed they will arrive in stock in early April. Some even offered great deals on the Xperia XZ2 where buyers would also get a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation VR headset for free.

In any case, if you haven't placed a pre-order due to various reasons, you might be pleased to know Sony has already starting to sell the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact across Europe. In the UK, the former is available for purchase for £700, while the latter can be had for £530 outright.

It appears that the Deep Green version of the Xperia XZ2 isn't available for purchase yet in the UK, but the Black and Liquid Silver models are listed with more than 10 units in stock.

The Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact were available for pre-order in the United States through B&H, but the retailer doesn't have the phones listed on its online store any longer.

Might go for XZ2. My only gripe is the front cam

The front camera only supports 1080p video, but that is okay for most on a front facing camera. The other thing is Sony's front camera is also gyroscopically and Electronically stabilized. So their front camera should be quite stable for images and video.

Yep I know. But its a downgrade compared to my XZ

I have the same dilema... for me it is a downgrade to my XZ in terms of thickness, headphone jack removal, front facing cam, and IMO the ideal location of the side fingerprint scanner and aesthetics. I would have been extremely happy with an XZ with trimmed top/bottom bezel (+ obvious performance upgrade... CPU/RAM) I would rather get the XZ1 over the XZ2 right now.... we'll see....

The huawei p20 pro has scored at 114!https://www.extremetech.com/electronics/266442-huawei-p20-pro-triple-camera-smashes-dxomark-high-score-record Even if the stabilization score is 96.

If you are charged $ 1200 for an obsolete iphone x and 900 $ junk from s9, you will not want to get the most advanced cell that exists

It has only 4GB of Ram so that will always be a NO from me

Sony's software doesn't have 500 gimmicks to worry about. It's a light skin

And you considered other smartphone technologies are gimmicks? How dare you!

It has a 6GB version though you can easily get from Amazon so your argument is invalid

Doesn't matter the maker of the phone. I will never buy a phone that has less than 6 GB of RAM

Sony should just give up on the whole smart phone business instead of losing money every year. Their technology is already several years behind Samsung. At this rate, they are just going to go bankrupt. But then again, I don't mind if obsolete companies like Sony or HTC gets wiped off the face of the planet.

14. Ciro1900

the only obsolete is the s9, with its 8-bit low resolution screen, its poor autonomy , and its features copied from the old Xperia

They don't lose money, don't worry about that. "Their technology is already several years behind Samsung", that's why they were able to shoot Super Slow Motion a year before Samsung, their EIS is as good as Samsung's combined OIS and EIS, they are the creators of LDAC, etc.

The only thing Sony has to sell is its name. Today's Sony is all about cost savings only. This is the reason of cheap materials, poor design, obsolete and ineffective use of space inside which doesn't allow to make thin and modern looking device. Whatever they say - even 3.5 mm removal is all about cost saving. They don't want to invest but instead trying to squeeze whatever still possible to squeeze from fans using good old name. But this time it's not going to work. And looking at XZ2 and XZ2C the only thing I could advise them is to go out of business as soon as possible to avoid financial disaster.

that's why it has the best screen on the market, it records in 4k hdr, it has, bluetooth 5.0, acoustic sound, quick charge qi, usb type c 3.1, snapdragon 845, 3d creator, ps4 controller etc.

It may have the 4K HDR recording but what good is that it if overheats and shuts down. Yes it still has the thermal throttling problems when recording 4K.
