We're going to see how the new hardware stacks up to the price/performance king, the OnePlus 5T.

We asked you what you thought was the best product announced at Mobile World Congress 2018 and you answered equivocally.

No release date and price has been set for the Xperia XZ2 although Sony will release those details soon for the United Kingdom and Indian markets. The list of launches also includes a number of flagship smartphones from the likes of Samsung, Nokia, Sony and even Asus. The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact sports a 5-inch (18:9) Full-HD+ display with X-reality engine as well.

The large bezels at the top and bottom of the screen have been reduced, but they're certainly not small - this is not a screen that covers the entire face of the phone.

And the 5.8in iPhone X screen also has the benefit of being an OLED panel - and a damn stunning one at that, thanks to manufacturer Samsung.

Just like every other high-end device made by the company, both phones come with top-of-the-line specs, attractive displays, and some impressive new camera features. The screens are now 18:9 and the bodies are curvier, making them much more comfortable to hold and use. Would Sony's new phones ditch the sharp angles? The bezels here are much more reasonably sized, and the phone in general is much thinner and more sleek looking.

There's also an adapter in the box which will allow users to connect their standard wired headphones to the XZ2 and this is also fully compatible with High-Resolution Audio. It is powered by octa-core Snapdragon 845 processor. And by that, we mean the Xperias are the only representatives for this niche on the Android side.
