Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact Is A Complete Mess, Here’s Why

By  | 

Smartphones with a display that is smaller than 5.3” are a rare sight today and this is exactly why Sony is still getting plenty of love from the public. Despite not being as huge as Samsung, the Japanese tech giant has never stopped offering flagship-like devices that is wrapped in a small package.

Their latest product is the Xperia XZ2 Compact – which is technically a smaller variant of the XZ2. And because of the small package, the specs are slightly toned down on the XZ2 Compact.

The phone features a 5” 1080p display and it relies on the Snapdragon 845 SoC with 64GB of internal storage to offer. When compared to past Compact phones, the XZ2 Compact is better as it has a performance that is fitting for current-generation flagships but to call the XZ2 Compact great is far from right at all.

This is due to the fact that Sony has slightly increased the size of their Compact range with the XZ2 Compact while not taking advantage of the bumped measurements. As an example, the XZ2 Compact has got a sub-3000mAh battery which is significantly behind the current average.

This is not a good thing when the phone is noticeably thicker than previous Compact entries and to add to that, Sony has removed the headphone jack on the XZ2 Compact.

All we can say is that these small little things have convinced us that the XZ2 Compact is a half-baked product that could’ve been great if Sony were to do better.
