BUT on phone , the flagship hardware is the same(snapdragon 801), benchmark are program are originally intended to measure the "real world utilization" of the hardware itself, if , for example , samsung s5 using its full gpu power in benchmark AND normal gaming, its not cheating, because it reflects the real performance of the skinned software. now the problem is, manufacturer ADDING a certain command , to push the hardware, to behave out-of-ordinary only in a benchmarking app just to fabricate the score, its not cheating if this also applies in games, but normally it is exclusive to benchmarking app, because putting such a strain to the components for a long period of time (ex: 3D gaming), will result either overheating or excessive battery drain. THAT is the real problem.
so to compare benchmarking on pC and phone, it is apple and oranges really.

On Samsung and HTC you get 100% ONLY in benchmarks, and there is no way to allow a browser, video player on anything else to use all of CPU/GPU power.
Big_Dikh, 18 May 2014Samsung cheats on benchmark.. That's the reality..No they don't. They just know how to utilize their hardware better within the speeds it comes out of the box with.
Anonymous, 16 May 2014They don't cheat in benchmark like scamsung.And who have told us that it's cheating to use the hardware with the speeds it comes out of the box with?
Does anyone cry like a baby when benchmark apps for Windows use the CPU and GPU at full speed under the benchmark runs, no?
Exactly. The thing with the cheating was just to get more clicks (also clickbaits) on the articles on those webpages who did write about it just to generate more money.
hagiow, 19 May 2014Xperia Z2 does not have a digitizer, you can use a capacitive stylus on any smartphone but it'... moreThey all have "digitizers".
The Note series is unique with built in Waycom digitizer.
What they are referring to is that they think only new Sony phones have this special sensitivity that can use almost anything as a stylus.
But other phones can don't too.
Note 3. I'm pretty sure can also do it. But it already has spen with pressure sensitive levels and a built in holding spot ;)
Fade dragon, 16 May 2014So,it's now proven that 3GB RAM of z2 didn't help to blow s5 away!open yourn eyes Sony fanboys... moreYou don't quite seem to understand what RAM actually is, it's not going to improve the score in the type of benchmarks gsmarena use. More RAM will allow you to run more apps at once and allows you to resume old apps faster because the OS didn't have to clear it from memory because it got full.

anyone who bought this unit in ksa, what is inside the box? noise cancellation earphone included?

but that's just ridiculous.

And it's not the same as waycom integration.

FLAT RECTANGLE GLASS BACK IS NOT GOOD TO ME!
I prefer "CURVE BACK" LG G3 for now.
Jacob sammyfanatic, 17 May 2014I forgot to mention that " THICK BEZEL" TOP-BOTTOM and TWO SIDES
NOT GOOD TO ME!
... moreThose thick bezels top & bottom really help to let the phone sitting nicely in your palms when used in landscape mode, without cramping your thumbs. try it for yourself.
Bezels were made for a reason
