People need to get over with low sound on Z2. Its a IP58 rated phone so Z2 is better than Samsung S5 with IP67 when it comes to waterproofing, so the sound is lower in Z2 but in no way inferior to S5.

New strategy with 6 month turn around time for new devices/phones? Come on Sony - just come out with one flagship a year and max out the specs.
what they just said????.... s5 with SUPER SLIM BEZEL???
gsmarena dont make me feel sometimes that ur review is little biased towards samsung:/ ....nyway..loved the last line...:D.....
Chin and bottom bezel are too thick as usual, on screen key taking too much of the screen, 20MP is a gimmick with no OIS presence..
Djz, 16 May 2014the sound is not that bad. it is ok. i am very happy with that phone :)As I said before i am not knocking anyone for their choice but for me the sound on all xperia phones since xperia s volume is too low for me.
Best smartphone hands down, now lets see what g3 will bring and can it take the crown from z2.
RCJ89, 16 May 2014Exactly why I don't give sony phones a look in anymore. I used to be a huge sony fan, I bought... moreWell, I used samsung and do not want ever to return to it...laggish ui and amoled are the main reasons, that blueish false white got to my nerve. As for sound...waterproofing IS an excuse, we are yet to see some other manufacturer produce a device with better sound in that ip category. As for the earphones, people should use dedicated in-ear-bud earpohnes for best experience with Sony, which is superb by the way.
All in all use what you want and enjoy, but for me Sony has the best user experience and overall best device
Built in noise cancelling makes this the phone to beat in the audio department.
WTF! Will someone plus test the noise cancelling compared to a stand alone headset like the Bose Quietcomfort? Would also like to know if the people complaining about low volume always have their volume maxed? Have you actually tried this phone with the NC enabled? Also fm is important to me as I listen all day. It doesn't use any data and is easy on the battery.
i stopped reading at "Non-user-replaceable battery" and went straight to comment section to write this.
Mr.Greg, 16 May 2014GSMArena, please compare Z2 with Oppo Find 7a.No need, SONY Z2 cell phone of the year!
I wanted to ask if Z2 have the same problem as older phones I have Xperia Z which I didn't charge for two day and now it won't charge any more. My wife's Xperia has the same problem and I have two Xperiz Z paper weight now.
ninjacent , 16 May 2014The sound is average but overall against the S5, Z2 all day for me. SONY has created a quality... moreEach to their own im not knocking anyones opinion but for me sound is very important and sound wise sony haven't delivered since the xperia Arc S (which was the last decently loud phone with the sony name in it (seeing as it was sony ericsson)
Everyone just talking about Benchmarks n stuffs lk dat. Hw many of us really understand n Care abt it????? Every phone has pons n cons. It jst depends wat u really lk. Nobody will really get wat they want. They should see wat they need in a phone n not wat they want......
