Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact Vs Sony Xperia XZ2

Design and Display

Beside being smaller than the Xperia XZ2, it doesn’t have a glass finish rather you have got a polycarbonate casing covered with aluminium. The smartphone might also look chubby as a result of cramming the smartphone with features present in the bigger model rather what you have here is a smartphone with solid ergonomics.

Although the bezels are not as thin as the ones in the LG V30S ThinQ or Nokia 8 Sirocco but it had been trimmed down considerably. The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact like the XZ2 still has the front facing stereo which is one of the reasons the bezel are still that much.

As a result of the reduced size the smartphone now has a much more crammed up pixels as it still retains the same resolution as in the Xperia XZ2. The display appears as colourful as in the other smartphone and with a higher pixel density of 483 ppi.  You have a 5.0-inch 1080 X 2160 pixels display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 guarding it.

Battery and Camera

A reduction in the size of the smartphone translated to a corresponding decrease in the battery capacity. This is understandable as the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact now as a 2, 870mAh Li-ion battery. On the other hand, the aluminium build now cancels the wireless charging present in the other model but still has the quick charge from Qualcomm.

In the camera segment, both smartphones are the same both having a 19MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie camera. There’s is still the slow motion video recording at 960fps, however, the quality is upgraded from the 720p in the Samsung Galaxy S9 to 1080p. The only thing is, it does this  for a shorter 3 seconds only. All the camera features present in the Sony Xperia XZ2 is present in the Compact model.

The similarity goes on, as you also have a 4GB RAM and a 64GB built-in storage and support for MicroSD card up to 400GB.
