To keep the lights on is a 3180mAh battery, with QuickCharge 3.0 and Qi Wireless Charging. Sony does not appear to be taken with dual cameras yet, but then the top cameraphone from last year does not have dual camera either.
Sony has added something it calls Dynamic Vibration System, which helps you feel certain activities e.g. vibrations that match the sound from a movie you are watching on your Xperia XZ2. Interesting, no?

The Xperia XZ2 compact is smaller, with a 5-inch display, has a less premium body, but has the same powerful processor and 4GB of RAM. The battery is smaller at 2870 mAh battery, but it has QuickCharge and wireless charging as well. Best of all, it has the same cameras as its bigger sibling.
