The Sony Xperia XZ2 has been introduced at MWC 2018 and, although it cannot compete with the Samsung Galaxy S9+ in all areas, it provides the best super-slow-motion capabilities on the market. Next to this, Sony's flagship also comes with one-handed operation and a Night Light mode baked into the official Xperia firmware for the first time.
The Night Light mode can be turned on automatically and adjusts the amount of blue light delivered by the display, making it easier on the eye in low light conditions. Obviously, the one-handed mode also does exactly what its name says — it allows the user to reach all parts of the interface on a large display. Since the Xperia XZ2 has a generous 5.7-inch display with an aspect ratio of 2:1, this feature is definitely a smart choice.
Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, the Sony Xperia XZ2 can shoot 4K HDR content, as well as full HD 960 fps super-slow-motion videos. The Samsung Galaxy S9+, on the other hand, is unable to handle these tasks, but can shoot 4K 60 fps videos and offers video stabilization up to 4K 30 fps, both still out of reach for the Sony Xperia XZ2 family.
The main drawbacks of the Xperia XZ2 are the 5 MP front camera and the outdated design. Even more, Sony chose to go with a resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 pixels for this lineup, less than the 2K resolution they have been known for, also dropping the 3.5 mm jack.
