Sony Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact preorders open in Europe

Sony Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact preorders open in Europe
Sony introduced its new flagship lineup, the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact, last month, but the smartphones could not be pre-ordered until today. If you live in Europe, you can now pre-order either of the two handsets in four color variants: Liquid Black, Liquid Silver, Deep Green and Coral Pink.

Prices and availability highly depend on your location, so if plan to buy the Xperia XZ2 in the UK, you'll have to come with no less than £699. According to Amazon, the smartphone will hit the shelves on April 5, so you'll still have to wait for about a month.

On the other hand, the Xperia XZ2 Compact costs just £529 and should be released on the market on the same date – April 5. Apparently, Amazon is selling dual-SIM versions of the smartphones as well, and for the same price.



The Xperia XZ2 is available in other European countries like France, Germany, and Italy for prices starting at €799, whereas the smaller Xperia XZ2 Compact sells for just €599. Both smartphones should arrive in these countries around the same time as in the UK.

Also thinking of getting the XZ1 instead, I can get a grey market unit for around $479 vs the $690 SRP. After sales service is horrible here in our country anyway so could care less about the warranty.

I will wait to see how XZ2P and XZ3 look. If both are as ugly as XZ2, I will get XZP chrome or XZ1 black. The specs of XZ2 are more than enough to me, but I dont like the design.

XZ1 specs are more than enough for at least next two years

Sounds like you are asking for a lot here. I'm not sure if they would be able to make that happen...

The ISO 51200 is a way to deliver high quality low light shots without the slow shutter. High ISO means fast shutter and no blur. The f value is not just amount of light in, but also DOF. Even with a smaller f like 2.0 it can catch more light than smaller sensors with bigger f like 1.7 or 1.5.. If you use same settings for both. I just know that according to the pic of the module, 2nd cam looks 25mm and the 1st is wider. SD845 cant handle 4K 90fps There wont be telephoto..

But ISO that high on a sensor so small produces a LOT of noise

Nobody knows the size yet.. And both cam will work together as one. To merge image and capture light. They must have found a way to deal with it..

I'm dead serious: Sony needs to cancel both of these devices until it's too late. Once damage to company reputation and sales is done there will be no way back for company. And both of these terrible devices will definitely bring much more harm than profit or good reputation.

True. They're almost as half-baked as the iPhone X. Sony Mobile is on its last leg.

iPhone X half baked Lol.

iPhone X is certainly half baked. Look it has a terrible notch or cutout. They dropped the fingerprint scanner or TouchID altogether. Which is slower than TouchID, and then you have to swipe up on the screen. Talk about making it longer to get on the iPhone X. The UI and gestures are most definitely half baked, and you have no way to change or customize them. Plus there is no fast charger included in the box. Even the iPhone X LTE speed is half the speed of the Android flagships. iPhone X is definitely half baked.

If that amount of stupidity doesnt damage your brain, I guess Sony is just fine.

Thing is, if you read/watch a lot reviews after the announcement, a lot of people who didn't like Sony designs of the past few years *like* this one. It could sway new people to their side. If they price it at $699, they might get some takers. Gotta admit, the XZ2 is growing on me some. (and I'm an XZ1 user). But I'd like to handle it to see how it feels. I pulled out an old Lumia 810 to remind me what chunky feels like.

Lumia's chunky build was probably my favourite among all smartphones

Previous Sony device looked elegant, only problem was the bezels... all they needed to do was trim it down a lil bit... but this new design is soo ugly + no more side fps, no audio jack, 1080p screen... and for a premium price? lol

Well considering Sony Mobile is profitable they are not doing too bad. Compare this to the likes of LG Mobile who lost close to $1 billion in 2017, well i doubt Sony are complaining.

When are they coming to the wonderful U.S.A.? Way too late.
