Sony, one of the big guns in the smartphone industry boasts of the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact in its arsenal. The smartphone is a stripped-down version of the Sony Xperia XZ2, Sony’s 2018 flagship. Well, what this entails is that if you’re a lover of the Xperia XZ2 design and features but the price tag is beyond your limit, you can consider getting this compact version.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact links up an aluminium frame with a plastic body covering, and then teams up with a front Corning Gorilla Glass 5 – an assurance against the smartphone’s damage in case it falls. Unlike the unusual camera placement at the Xperia XZ2, this phone has a single camera placed at the top left corner supported by a LED flash. Its fingerprint scanner for security also gets the back position.

With that settled, the device displays 1080 X 2160 pixels worth of resolution on its 5.0 inches IPS LCD touchscreen. Together with the 1080p resolution, the 483PPI pixel density makes the smartphone’s screen quality adorable. Thankfully, the smartphone is dust-proof & can stay up to 1.5m in water for 30mins, thus, earning it the IP68 certification.

At the helm of affairs, the latest Snapdragon SoC – Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC is mounted. It works seamlessly with the octa-core CPU that clocks at 2.7GHz. Lovers of gaming applications can sit back and enjoy the perfect delivery of the Qualcomm Adreno 630 GPU in the graphics section. Meanwhile, a 4GB RAM ensures apps run smoothly on the device. Also, files on the device can be stored on the 64GB internal memory which can be expanded to 400GB with the use of a MicroSD card.

At the front camera section, a 5MP sensor discharges production of selfies. Android Oreo OS is the running software on the device. Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact works on a non-removable Li-Ion 2,870mAh battery. The battery charges rapidly with the help of Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology.
