There's no doubt that the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium has some interesting things to offer. It namely has a 4K HDR display and excellent rear cameras which can record 4K HDR video, as well as taking excellent photographs.

No, at $1,000 it’s tough to justify buying the XZ2 Premium. Unless you desperately want to film in 4K HDR or often find yourself filming in low light, this phone doesn’t do enough for its high price tag, and it’s not pleasurable to use.

A closer look at the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium’s dual cameras in low-light
Source: Hardware Zone English
These days, a flagship smartphone’s camera has to deliver so much more to be worth its price tag. It’ll be interesting to see what Sony has up its sleeve for the camera on its upcoming Xperia XZ3, which, curiously enough, might have a single camera setup.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium – The True Xperia Flagship [Review]
Source: G Style Magazine English
The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium is a fantastically capable device. It’s top tier specs mean that pretty much any app or game you throw at it will run super smoothly and this also goes for the phone itself. It starts up almost immediately and there’s barely any lag when activating the camera from sleep. This is seriously one quick device that will make almost any hardcore user happy.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium has a 5.8-inch IPS LCD 4k display with a 3,840 x 2,160 pixels resolution (~765ppi). However, it's also one of the biggest and heaviest phones out there, measuring 158 x 80 x 11.9 mm and weighing 236g.

76% Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium review: Too quirky for the mainstream
Source: Engadget English
The Xperia XZ2 Premium is a capable phone that lasts all day, but most of its standout features are either unnecessary or incredibly niche. It’s also very expensive and very slippery. Most people will be better served by another flagship Android phone.

60% Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium Review: The Bigger They Are…

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium's 4K HDR display is nice, and its cameras take solid shots in low light. But this $999 phone can't match the iPhone X, Galaxy S9, OnePlus 6 or Pixel 2.

Even though it’s not quite a home run, the XZ2 Premium is yet another step in the right direction for Sony. The new innovations here will definitely help to shed some light back onto Sony, but it’s going to need to go the extra mile the next time around to truly get more attention. At the end of the day, it’s still good enough to compete against some of the greats out in the space right now.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
We'll be doing more proper testing once a finalized unit of the Xperia XZ2 Premium comes our way. Battery life, performance, image quality - all these things should be examined on a retail-ready device, but we still jumped at the opportunity for an early look at what this device is capable of.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium First Impressions [Review – Part 1]
Source: G Style Magazine English
So if we’re keeping track, Sony technically has three flagships right now – The Xperia XZ2 Compact, the Xperia XZ2, and the Xperia XZ2 Premium. The latter is the true flagship and powerhouse, though the first two are no slouches. Mainly they just lack that second camera, the 4K display, and don’t quite have as much RAM. However, they are cheaper and come in slightly more manageable size. They can also pretty much do everything the XZ2 Premium can do.
