S5=high end plastic. Ugly. Too many useless innovation. Garbage fingerprint scanner. The most important things is damn ugly!!!Make your choice.
One thing I hate about this phone battles is that after the battle and rounds won by each phone. The umpire doesn't announce the winner. gsmarena.com is scared to mention any winner leaving u to go back n count. Samsung s5 won.

Well done. Keep it up. Fanboys of X, Y, Z companies - Please read it again and again, think about it till you get a real perspective about it.

In the end it is still the overall best. If you think the Z2 or any other screen is "accurate" you are a fool.
These LCDs are just less saturated.
On top of over saturated colors they have fake blacks, fake whites, washy contrast, more reflective, more bright spots/uneven light, overall more space and power consumption.......
Triluminos helps with white balance at least.
So when in Movie Mode even though the AMoled is still a little more saturated it's overall way more natural.
Plus it can of course be left more saturated the way most people in the real world prefer it. And it's way brighter, less reflective, and can be dimmer.

Z2 on top of Flagships and also won Cell phone of Year 2014!!!
For the proper testing of screen color accuracy between the S5 and Z2, you guys should take a look at erica griffin's video on youtube.
The only thing I have to say.. This was just a review.
On real world usage.. I switched from S4 to Z2 here in US by specially buying an international edition Z2 and I am very happy with my SONY. This is my first SONY and absolutely stunning and beautiful. Every single person who say it my hand, has only and only praised its beauty. No hard feeling again S5, but Z2 really decimates the competition on shear premium build. Inside the hood, both S5 and Z2 are same.
And I am still GLAD i am using Android only be it Sony or Sammy. Not Fruit Phone.
SAMSUNG 4 LIFE, 06 Jun 2014Yes year 2008 Xperia 1 but it didnt last bec. its cover is weakThat was the first Retina phone I believe.
[deleted post]While I agree that for a long time now I have seen some of the most ridiculous and sheeple of Sony trolls/fanboys around here....
That's utter garbage. The Z2 shows some fierce improvement from Sony in the past couple years.
I honestly think in most overall advantages it's right up there with the S5. It's a great phone for sure. And they are only moving more forward. Have you seen the increase in battery life, display, updates?
Though they need to absolutely hire a new team for camera tuning.
crazy boy, 06 Jun 2014me idk what to believe people said that the sony xperia z2 has active noise cancelling built a... moreLOL. So just because Sony put the words "noise canceling" in their description means that any review showing that is falls short of others regardless of their "claim" means it must be a bias fake review?????
LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. Wow. Any article including Sony for a long time now has seemed to reach a level of apple like fanboys. It's hilarious.....Yet pathetic all at the same time.
Fire, 06 Jun 2014why you forgot Samsung S5 shake well in low light? and still a lot of noise, and the affectedl... moreI think 90% of people here are well aware that Samsung does not generally do as good in low light in most cases.
There is still a lot more to it than just that aspect alone. One would think that was obvious.
