Moto Z4 (2019) vs Sony Xperia XZ2 (early 2018)

Analysis:

While the Moto Z4 (2019) wasn't able to make it to the very top of any roundups from sources that perform quality hands-on testing, it still got featured in a large number of them. PhoneArena, Techradar, CNET, PCmag, The Verge, Android Central, and Android Authority have all deemed it worthy of a place on their respective shortlists.

Moving on to the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium (early 2018): it was unable to reach the very top of any roundups from sources that conduct reliable and unbiased testing. Nonetheless, it still managed to impress reviewers from a number of such sites, like Notebookcheck.net, PhoneArena, GSMArena, Techradar, TrustedReviews, and Expert Reviews, enough for them to include them on those lists.

To get a better idea of how they fare when compared directly to each other, we analyzed review scores of sources that tested both. PhoneArena and Digitaltrends, for example, preferred the Moto Z4 (2019), while Techradar rated both of them the same.

We also took a look at which sources had the best things to say about them. We learned that the Moto Z4 (2019) got reviewed the highest by PhoneArena - it gave it a rating of 9, while the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium (early 2018) most impressed reviewers at Notebookcheck.net, which gave it a score of 8.8.

Finally, we compared them to other Smartphones on the market and found that the two of them got reviewed similarly to the majority of their competitors. The overall average review score for Smartphones in general is 7.5 out of 10, whereas the Moto Z4 (2019) and Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium (early 2018) managed averages of 6.9 and 7.0 points, respectively.

It should be noted that it might not be entirely fair to do a direct Moto Z4 (2019) vs. Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium (early 2018) comparison due to the difference in their pricing; some sources have a tendency to review more premium products better than more affordable ones.
