s5 is superior to sony z2.we played the same 1080p video in z2 and s5 for comparing,and results are totly unexpected and astonishing.z2 has amazing detail and clarity and sharpness and depth of color which s5 not has.then i compare the same video in note 3,s4,s3 and z2 is clearly ahead,x_reality is amazing.samsung is making the world fool.please must check yourself once and see the diffrence
s5 z2 g3 both are top phones in the world but i choose Z2 because of well placed stereo speakers,FM radio,good battery life,best design,brilliant display and BRAND name SONY!. i don't like LG&SAMSUNG idea of placing a single mono speaker @ back of phone.i'm expecting sony to include FM transmitter and DVB-H in future xperia phones. job well done SONY.

I think you may not have both Z2 and S5;
Of course, Z2 has physical camera button and make "quick snap shot" easily and more faster than S5 or HTCm8 or LGg3:)
Do you know Z2 has" 3g RAM"?
Do you know s5 is made of "plastic"?
Do you know Z2 has premium Ominibalance design?
Do you know s5 has poor "waterproof quality"?
Do you know Z2 has stereo speakers?
Do you know s5 has low quality with high price( for the cost of advertisement)?
Do you know Z2 has high premium quality and innovative built_in "Cooling" tech", and has good value to live up to the promise?
Do you know Z2 has only used snap dragon 801 chipset globally unlike s5?
Do you know Z2 has "FM radio" for local news and local music and filled with "soft wear wise"?
Only Z2 's competitor is "coming soon iPhone 6"::)
Have a happy day,
Best Phone that i ever had so far...very impressed with the camera and speed.
To all those bashing Samsung vs Sony let me say all comments are relavent both handsets are leaders in the markets so comparing them is justified. Both handsets are equally as good as each other, both have had heating issues, yes the Sony has faster processor and out strips the Samsung by a mile, yes Samsung is a better pick for 'quick snap' pictures, Sony though if you take the time to adjust settings with take an incredible high quality photo. The 'flaps' on both phones for the charging ports are equally as bad for catching on things and having the platic seals erod over time. How are they both for making calls and text? tha same...basically boils down to, like your games? Get a Sony, don't care for games and like quick shot camera, go Samsung. Care for lowest price? Go Sony

The only other phone to come close is the G3. The G3 is inferior because of better than S5 but inferior to Z2 build quality and the QHD screen which cause lag!
z2cr, 28 Aug 2014This F****** ph is a magnet for fingerprint, gets dirty very easily.Slim snap on spigen case on back and oleophobic tempered glass screen protector to the front, job done! No finger print magnet issue here!
rigormortis, 29 Aug 2014I don't know weather its just me or this phone has a terrible battery, it drains really fast, ... moreThe longest time I got out of my battery is just over 2 days! I think some people may need to learn about battery management unless, of course, they are trolling!

hmza, 29 Aug 2014if we use this phone in water so its work good or not??don't even think about getting it on a pool or getting it wet just like how they market this phone. they say its a waterproof but warranty will not cover it once it get wet or any moisture build up inside. a great camera, but low volume when calling. a great screen but easily breaks, a good stylish design but failed on flaps where water easily sips
Just bought phone 5 days ago.So far I can confidently say that
- camera is fantastic
- user interface is clean and fast
- solid phone quality
- no heating issues in normal usage
- sound quality is nice
didnt find any
I am vey satisfied with z2
I and my brother both are xperia z2 USERS. So far the camera and sound and display is givings its best ..... But unfortunately the shatter prove glass is shattered on single fall around table height
z2cr, 28 Aug 2014This F****** ph is a magnet for fingerprint, gets dirty very easily.Thats y its watr resistant and you can wash it
I got a xperia z2 prototye.
Everything is working fine, except the call quality. i can hear and understand very well, but the other person has echoes, and very bad sound..also very bad sound in Viber and Skype alamos all voice app
Is it a hard- or software related problem?
rigormortis, 29 Aug 2014I don't know weather its just me or this phone has a terrible battery, it drains really fast, ... moreMy Z2 is 14 days old & it gives me 2 days battery back up easily as i'm not a gamer, just use if for calls, txts, whats app, skype (thrice a week) & fb & i get 2 days back up with ease, this is really a great phone when it comes to battery, infact it's the sexiest phone i've ever used in terms of looks n' performance.
rigormortis, 29 Aug 2014I don't know weather its just me or this phone has a terrible battery, it drains really fast, ... moreHey.. I have Z2 as well with regular ussage.. I think there is some issue with ur battery.. My Z2 easily lasts more than 48 hours on single charge despite me being a heavy call user with some occasional surfing and video watching.
