Sony Xperia Z2 pre-orders back up in Europe, launch pushed to May - read the full textSony is experiencing a great deal of trouble getting its latest flagship the Xperia Z2 out of the factories and onto the store shelves. The company has re-launched the pre-orders for the phone on its UK website and has listed the shipping time window for the month of May. The Sony Xperia...

 

Sort by:

The Sony Z2 was launched in Canada May 8, 2014. I can tell you first hand that after adding a 128GB SD Card and starting to shoot 4K video the phone became so hot it was impossible to hold. Then the phone shutdown causing a total loss of video. When devices get this hot they damage the Cpu, Memory, and Battery. I had this problem Day 1. The service provider Bell Canada did everything in their power to force me to keep what they knew was a defective phone. There is a second problem where the screen has pulled away from the case making their waterproof claim bogus. The official Sony company line is: When shooting video you should do so for a short period of time. WOW. A waterproof, not so waterproof phone with a design flaw in the camera that cannot be fixed with any sort of repair. If you have this phone take it back right away. Every phone made has this problem and Sony or your carrier could care less. Design flaws are NOT able to be repaired. They will do everything possible to run out the time on your DOA exchange time so that you are screwed.

I told Sony Japan that my idea of shooting 100 FPS 4K video and not having the problem would sort of be ok...if the phone was waterproof. Sony states if they find any water inside the phone YOU the owner did something wrong and are on the hook. My reply was ok, I will shoot video until the phone gets so hot it is ready to shutdown then I will toss it into a bucket of ice water fast cool it and start again.

My rating on this phone is a -2 Total Turd. I was lucky and told them I would sue in small claims court so they offered me a refund. I went to another location tested then purchased the Samsung S5. Never buy a cell phone without testing it. Ask questions & make it clear what you want to do. If the dealer says they have nothing but non-working demo phones run like hell. Google Xperia Z2 defective camera for details. Check RipOffReport.com for another persons report. The phone is crap.

Bad time for sony. Samsung n htc will steal their sale.
I'm also waiting for Z2, but if the delay continues, i might return to samsung or perhaps iphone 5s.
