|Display Type||LCD display|
|Screen Size (Display Size)||5"||Better than 58 % of phones rated.|
|Screen Resolution (Display Resolution)||2160 x 1080 pixels||Better than 82 % of phones rated.|
|Pixel Density||483 ppi||Better than 85 % of phones rated.|

The screen size reaches 5" inches. Phones with smaller displays are easier to use with one hand. The experience is less pleasant compared to phones with large displays. However, if you're buying a phone for basic use and don't want, for example, a good gaming experience or a large screen for watching movies, this size should be good enough for you. LCD displays are currently taking a back seat. This is mainly due to higher power consumption. In addition, they have the disadvantage of lower colour contrast, which can be reflected e.g. in the resulting photos. On the other hand, phones with LCD displays are in general cheaper than those with OLED technology.
Display Resolution of Sony XPERIA XZ2 Compact (Single-SIM) is 2160 x 1080 pixels. A higher display resolution is a prerequisite for a sharper image. The standard for mid-range phones today is a Full HD resolution of 1920 × 1080 px. Cheaper phones, which usually have a smaller diagonal, have an HD resolution of 1280 × 720 px. Smaller resolutions can only be found in older models. Best phones, on the other hand, have a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 px. Display´s pixel density is 483 ppi and represents another significant factor affecting image sharpness besides resolution. The higher the value, the sharper the image. Average value is currently about 350-400 ppi, which guarantees a fine and sufficiently sharp image. Finest modern phone displays reach 450 ppi and above.
|PROCESSOR Sony XPERIA XZ2 Compact (Single-SIM)|
|Processor Type (CPU)||Qualcomm Snapdragon 845|
|Processor Core Qty||8-core||Better than 99 % of phones rated.|
|64-bit Architecture||Yes||Better than 81 % of phones rated.|
|Graphics System (GPU)||Qualcomm ADRENO 630|
Sony XPERIA XZ2 Compact (Single-SIM) is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. The number of processor cores is 8. It is a number of cores that plays an important role in evaluating the performance of phone as it is responsible for computing operations. Smartphones already commonly have a core count of around 4 to 8. Multi-core processors can perform better and reduce the processing time of a request to a minimum, which is reflected in the responsiveness of the phone, e.g. in the speed of opening applications.
The processor also includes the graphics accelerator Qualcomm ADRENO 630.
|MEMORY Sony XPERIA XZ2 Compact (Single-SIM)|
|RAM||4 GB||Better than 80 % of phones rated.|
|Internal Memory Size (Storage Capacity)||64 GB||Better than 78 % of phones rated.|
|Supported Flash Memory Cards (Expandable Memory)||microSDHC, microSDXC - up to 400 GB|
The phone´s internal memory capacity is 64 GB. The size of the internal storage determines e.g., how many photos, songs, movies, or applications you can store on your phone. For everyday use and storing photos, songs or movies, this medium-sized internal storage is ideal. The advantage is also a lower price of phones equipped with this storage capacity. Best phones today range from 256 GB to 1 TB. That size is suitable for the most demanding users who shoot a lot of high-resolution photos or videos in 4K. Nevertheless, you'll have to pay extra for these higher capacities. Luckily, most smartphone manufacturers nowadays offer models with different memory sizes to suit every user.
An additional option to increase the storage capacity of this model is to insert a memory card.
RAM memory of the Sony XPERIA XZ2 Compact (Single-SIM) is 4 GB. Most powerful phones currently have an operating memory of 12 GB or more, which is especially useful for demanding users such as gaming enthusiasts. Normally, phones nowadays have 6 to 8 GB of RAM, which means that the phone can easily handle normal operation and more demanding applications. Operating memory of less than 4 GB is found in lower-end phones or older models, and they are suitable for low-end users who don't use demanding applications and have the phone more for basic use.

The rear camera of the Sony XPERIA XZ2 Compact (Single-SIM) has only one lens. Single lens is more typical for older phones or lower-end phones with lower quality cameras. The rear cameras of modern phones nowadays are usually equipped with two, three and sometimes even five rear camera lenses. The resolution of the main lens is 19 Megapixel. Higher resolution does not necessarily mean super high quality photos. Furthermore, it depends on the pixel size but also on other important factors.
The size of the phone's sensor is also among the parameters that affect quality of the photo. In case of Sony XPERIA XZ2 Compact (Single-SIM), it is 1/2.3". Focus mainly on the value after the slash, where the higher it is, the better photo quality will be. The aperture of main lens reaches F/2.0 value. The best phones have a lens with an aperture of up to F/1.5, where more light can pass through sensor and photos will be of a high quality even in low light conditions. However, lenses with apertures around F/1.8 to F/2.2 are the most common. The lower the number after the slash, the better the photo quality.
Digital zoom in this case offers zooming up to 8x. Of course, the higher the lens value, the more distant object can be zoomed in. Nonetheless, the disadvantage of digital zoom is that the quality and sharpness of photo deteriorates when using it. Some users will also appreciate facial recognition feature, which allows camera to recognise the face of person in frame and automatically focus on it.
The front camera of phone Sony XPERIA XZ2 Compact (Single-SIM) has one lens. This number of lenses is standard on most smartphones nowadays. The main front lens is designed as a Wide-angle lens. The resolution of front lens reaches 5 Megapixel. Again, it should be noted that resolution is only one of several other significant factors that affect resulting quality of a photo. The main lens is also equipped with aperture of F/2.2.
|BATTERY AND CHARGING Sony XPERIA XZ2 Compact (Single-SIM)|
|Battery Capacity (Battery Size)||2870 mAh||Better than 63 % of phones rated.|
|Fast Charging Technology||Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0||Better than 87 % of phones rated.|
The battery size of Sony XPERIA XZ2 Compact (Single-SIM) is 2870 mAh. Nevertheless, battery capacity is not the only factor that affects the phone's battery life. For example - the size of the display, the performance of the processor, the use of data functions and, of course, the intensity of use of phone in general all have a significant impact on battery life. Standard for most smartphones today is a battery capacity of around 4500 to 5000 mAH. Phones with this battery size usually guarantee a phone life of at least 1 day. Older or cheaper smartphone models can then reach battery capacities typically around 2500 mAH and below. With this capacity, you may find that if you use your phone heavily, you may need to recharge your phone during the day. The fast charging function will also please many people. Owing to fast charging, phone charges up to several times faster, which you will appreciate, for example, on the go.Show more
