Review of the product design of the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au

Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets

When deciding whether to buy an Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au, the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au around and put it away.

Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around

The size of the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au allows it to be carried in one hand, but depending on the user it might feel too large to hold comfortably. Furthermore, care must be taken when carrying it along with a wallet as it is relatively easy to drop if you are not paying attention.

Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket

It doesn't feel strange even when you put the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.

Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket

Sometimes taking the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au out of your pocket doesn't go so well as it gets caught on fabric easily. It's safe to assume that some people will find it stressful that it is difficult to take it out smoothly.

Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

Ease of grasping the phone in one hand

The large size of the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au makes controlling it with one hand difficult. If you have to use it with one hand, it is better to lay it in the palm of the hand rather than grabbing onto it. It isn't difficult once you get used to it, but as this grip is fairly unstable care must be taken not to drop it inadvertently.

The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand

The Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au feels too heavy to operate with one hand, so the device wouldn't be a good choice even if you are just going to use it for a short period of time. We suggest that you hold it tightly with both hands as it may hurt your hands if you use it with just one hand for an extended period of time.

Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand

When using the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au with just one hand, it is quite difficult to press the button on the screen edge. We suggest you operate the device with both your hands rather than pushing your luck with just one hand.

The size of the buttons on the App

The buttons on the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au are displayed quite large. Because of this, it is difficult to press something by mistake and it feels very easy to use. Even with games that use small buttons, it's difficult to press something by mistake making it very easy to play.

Ease of typing in letters using the flick function

Inputting keys with one hand with the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au can be done but this grip tends to feel unstable. Because of this sometimes you can drop it carelessly when trying to type quickly. If you take your time when typing though you will be unlikely to drop it.

Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion

I think it is easy to use the buttons on the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au as they are displayed in large sizes. However, it is difficult not to make typos when typing at high speeds. I don't think you will feel it difficult to type if you are careful when typing.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

Because the display of the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au is much larger than ordinary phones, characters are displayed quite large. Therefore, it is suitable for reading long bodies of text and exchanging long messages while doing research.

Ease of reading sentences

Since the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au displays characters smoothly, it can display them beautifully. Even when viewing small characters, the jaggedness of the character outline is not at a level seen during normal viewing and is displayed very naturally. Because of this, it is difficult for your eyes to become tired and make the phone suitable for reading long bodies of text.

The beauty of the overal screen

The screen of the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au can display pictures and videos quite vividly. This makes it great for enjoying videos and games dynamically. It has a very beautiful screen.

Ease of writing sentences

For the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au, the on-screen keyboard covers part of the screen when typing, but there is sufficient space for operation. Its size is suitable for entering long sentences, but I feel it may be a bit clumsy when editing office documents.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

Whether it be a phone call, mail, or during a chat, the Xperia XZ2 Premium SOV38 au provides smooth performance. Even when using the phone in demanding situations, you can use the phone comfortably since there will usually be no lag.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

If it is just SNS such as Facebook and Instagram, and some internet searches, the performance is enough. As a result, you will hardly ever find yourself frustrated or annoyed when using this phone.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

Even if you start multiple apps at the same time or switch between apps frequently, you will have smooth performance. It can be said that the performance is more than enough if you just do research and SNS.
