The best Sony Xperia XZ2 deals in July 2018

It might not quite have the same cachet as Samsung and Apple these days, but the launch of a new Sony flagship phone is still a reason to be excited. Less than a year after releasing its last major handset, the tech giant has launched the shiny new Sony Xperia XZ2 - and we can tell you the best XZ2 deals.

Sony's Xperia XZ2 looks to be one of the best phones ever from the company as it finally embraces a new design style compared to older handsets from the Japanese firm. It comes with a 5.7-inch 18:9 ratio Full HD display in a similar body to the 5.2-inch Xperia XZ1, so the phone isn't bigger but comes with more screen. We've gone hands on and you can see more of our thoughts at the bottom of this page.

Before that however, you can fiddle with our comparison tool below to custom make the best Xperia XZ2 deal for you. It comes in much cheaper than the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S9, and we'll also tell you about how much you should expect to pay if you want an unlocked SIM-free XZ2.
