The Sony Xperia XZ2 is IP68 rated, which allows it to survive a drop in water up to a depth of 1.5 feet for 30 minutes. This certification is present in some of the premium devices like Apple’s latest iPhone 8 and iPhone X, which not only offers a water-repellent characteristic to the device but also makes it dust proof.
Corning Gorilla Glass
The 5.5-inch IPS LCD display of the smartphone features a Corning Gorilla Glass v5, which protects it from minor scratches and act as a resistance against sudden blow or collision of low intensity.
The smartphone receives a great combination of high-pixelated front and rear cameras with 13MP and 20MP resolutions respectively. Both the cameras offer excellent photography and videography results with sharp quality videos and pictures.
Huge storage capacity
The device is equipped with an inbuilt memory of 64GB capacity that can also be increased to a maximum capacity of 256GB by using an external memory card into the dedicated memory card slot provided.
The smartphone churns out its energy from a 3,250mAh Li-Polymer battery that promises to offer a good backup to the device. Additionally, it gets a v3.0 quick charging feature which not only quickens the charging period but also provides an improved battery life to the user.
Does not support microUSB
The absence of microUSB in the Sony Xperia XZ2 tends to be a drawback of the device, as the availability of type-C charger becomes difficult as not many smartphones support it. Sometimes when you forget to carry your charger while travelling, it may become a major problem for you to charge your device. Moreover, the security threat is also a major defect of the type-C USB, as a badUSB named malware tends to enter the device while using it.
