Video review: Sony XZ2 Compact — as the flagship, only a small

In the beginning of the year, Sony has shown a lot of novelties, and among them are some very interesting. About Sony XA2 we have been told. However, about the flagship is also worth mentioning. So today will talk about the Sony XZ2 Compact.

The smartphone is so small that it does not cause the feeling of serious device. That is why the price of 49 990 rubles and not think of this reality.

In the second generation models XZ, the company slightly changed its traditional angular design. The lines are much smoother, and the smartphone has become a bit more similar to the others. This applies to the model XZ2 and XZ2 Compact.

The main features of the design is still preserved, some continuity remained. In this regard, including the start button of the camera, which was almost always in the smartphones from Sony and was very comfortable, especially when using gloves. Even despite the fact that the camera can be run by double pressing the Power button.

The thickness is 12.1 mm and thus uniformly increases towards the middle of the back wall, which makes the case similar to Soaps, but allows him to comfortably lie in the hand.

The case is made from the traditional flagships of metal and glass. The rear wall with the side faces of the whole is not, and plastic inserts on it. They are on the sides. It is worth noting that the back cover is black, and the side faces give a little blue. It looks strange, although I notice it immediately, but only at a certain angle.

Camera one front, the back and the fingerprint scanner in the Power button is no more, now he’s on the back wall. But it will not go away, the inscription Sony, the front panel, if someone likes the manufacturer’s logo on the case.

Fans wired sound will be unhappy that the company abandoned the headphone Jack. Now, if you want to listen to music through the wire, it will be necessary to use the adapter, which is placed in a box.

In addition to the adapter included is only the power adapter and charging cable. Nothing more.

Not to mention that when the thickness of the case too sophisticated. The buttons are too thin and soft, but you get used to it, although at first it draws attention to itself and seems to be very unusual.

Works XZ2 Compact running Android 8, and the interface is not so heavily overloaded proprietary shell.

Of course, not worth the extra time to say that everything works smoothly. For this is to thank the long-awaited Snapdragon 845, which is enough just for everything, and even more than one year. RAM will be 4 GB.

Internal memory 64 GB, and expand it with memory cards up to 400 GB, as written in the manufacturer’s website.

The margin of autonomy thanks to very large screen is nice, but not outstanding. If you don’t put it down, it will be enough for the day, but absolutely without reserve, as if to save a little, even enough for the morning.

The enemy of autonomy is the fact that the display, though small, but it will be FullHD+ with an aspect ratio of 2:1 in the spirit of the time and a diagonal of 5 inches. Plus it’s HDR screen with system image enhancement X-Reality, which converts the image on the fly, but it spends more energy than if he worked differently. Hence the small indicators of autonomy.

To increase autonomy is all brand features Sony’s STAMINA, qnovo adaptive charging, battery care and Quick Charge 3.0, which is supported out of the box complete with power adapter.

If a little bit on the screen, then we can say that when you take it in hand, back in the days when iPhone has not increased, and the models with the word “mini” from Samsung was still very popular. However, he surprises with its quality. The pixel density is very high, and image quality at the maximum level. However, if you have a large hand, on this screen you will be uncomfortable to use a keyboard.

Sony does not translate its flagship on dvuhkonturniy camera that did not have a majority, and literally everything, even the cheap brands. The company needs to do a normal camera, given that many top-end smartphones are equipped with sensors produced by Sony. Perhaps due to this the company can do even odnofanturnoy camera lets you capture great photos.

Wonders in the dark is not worth waiting, but in daylight images are no questions. No revolutions on the first of the family in the camera has not occurred. The main module has a resolution of 19 megapixels and a sensor size 1/2,3 inches. The images are contrasting, but automation sometimes perspecive. To combat this you can use manual mode.

In General, the photos are worthy flagships. But what’s really impressive is this in slow motion 960 fps, which the company already used in its products, and even the Koreans with the Chinese have already caught up, but Sony still again a step ahead of the competition. Now lapse will be in FullHD that is not yet available to other companies. To do this, use the built-in camera module memory, which may make the flow of information several times faster than basic, and then slowly to pass them.

Availability does not mean that you can shoot all the videos with this frequency. Here in fact lies the secret of shooting with such frequency in FullHD. Built-in memory module previously allowed you to record this number of frames that the output is given 6 seconds of slow-motion video. In HD mode, nothing has changed, but in FullHD we have only 3 seconds, that does not mean the acceleration memory or refinement of compression. It’s just a reduction in recording time.

In the end, in HD and FullHD-mode, we can only shoot events that last 0.1 and 0.2 seconds, respectively, since it will be 90 and 180 frames at a certain rounding and gives the specified results.

A simple video also differs in that this process implemented in your chips. Shooting video in 4K on a smartphone is no surprise for several years, despite the fact that even TVs with support for such permit has not begun to enter our lives. Despite this, the XZ2 Compact camera allows you to shoot video in 4K resolution, but also HDR, which is really a matter of respect.

The camera also includes modes predictive shooting and support for focus tracking, which will never be superfluous.

In addition, when using the camera and some firmware you can create 3D models of people and objects, which can then be considered in the volume, rotating them on screen or print on a 3D printer. They can also be embedded into the AR scene, the templates which are already installed.

Upsets in the camera only that there are no optical image stabilization, which for a long time and thoroughly embedded in the smartphones of its competitors.

Still, even in the absence of the stabilizer main camera, front on its background looks much easier and just acts as a camera for cebasek. Its resolution is only 5 Megapixels, but the module also one. Backlit pictures are not very good, but when the difference in the lighting when part of the image in the sun and part in shade, the pictures are normal.

Smartphone like some other Sony models, supports connection of a DualShock joysticks and allows you to play games through it. Although there is a small screen it looks weird.

In the end we can say that Sony, a little away from his signature appearance, went kind of on about time, but still released to the market a modern powerful machines. It is a pity that the engineers have decided to abandon some very good solutions that were the previous flagships of the brand.

Anyway, the smartphone was modern and worthy fight with its competitors. Hard to argue with the fact that some features are more marketing, such as improving the image of the screen. But 960 fps in FullHD it’s really impressive, though not record in this format a lot.

I have not decided for myself if I like that the company has gone from blocky design and large frames on the perimeter when switching to a display with an aspect ratio of 2:1. On the one hand, I liked something the old model, but in 2018, this design is quite irrelevant. But the update has made the smart phone is too similar to others. Perhaps this trend time, and I’m not saying it’s bad, just expressed at the end of the opinion.
