Sony has comprehensively redesigned the look and feel of its flagship phones for 2018.

Does the Sony Xperia XZ2 have a good camera?
In a word, yes. Sony provides the majority of camera sensors for every major smartphone brand (yes, including Apple), and it always keeps a few goodies for its own flagships. For the Xperia XZ Premium, that was the inclusion of super-slow motion 960fps video, and that feature has been pumped up in the Xperia XZ2 with support for 1080p super slow motion, as well as 4K HDR video recording.
