Xperia Z2 can not play a wmv, flv file and no ac3 audio codec. Why people so much crazy about the phone? In paper it have good specification and in out of box....... Why I install third party software to play all videos for that high priced flagship? there are more brands with in 15000 inr that can play all of that codec preinstalled in their stock video players .Even Camera lag issue not fixed on .402 firmware. I noticed some people here advertise for Z2. I think they are appointed by Sony or they want to destroy your hard earned money
Palash Haldar, 14 Jul 2014I think u r not real Z2 owners . Daily people complain to sony. Go to talk mobile Sony. Are yo... moreHa ha, your imaginary friends??
You should buy Z2 in real life instead" false" opinion:)
Sony has already made new updates:)
Don't mentioned "very old review"
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2014Your opinion is so long! And you didn't know about Z2 because you are not a Z2 user:) You co... moreI think u r not real Z2 owners . Daily people complain to sony. Go to talk mobile Sony. Are you employee of Sony mobile or added person by Sony. They have seriously major software bugs. that's all. I think handset is better but Firmware flaws. can you play 5 minutes video on Facebook? Why you so much prefer Xperia Z2? My free opinion to you go to Sony site and check all issues that reported just in a month.
Please suggest me how to purchase mobile samsung s2 or sony z2 i ' m totally confused.
darkgamer, 13 Jul 2014Um sorry but you are clearly wrong mate. Color saturation is measured by color gamut. Z... morewell..thanks for your measurements BUT what i meant was colors are more accurate on Z2....and that gains the upper hand ...Many people in fact like the saturation of Amoled but what i like is more accurate and vivid colors rather than just bright and glowing displays.....Color Fidelity, Xperia Z2 wins.!!!
amal, 13 Jul 2014what is the average battery life of xperia z2I am an average user ....for me it lasted througout the day...roughly its 18 to 20 hours with full charge and in stand by mode it says 3-4 days!
DTR, 13 Jul 2014Well having this phone for the past 4 weeks, I can honestly say I'm not impressed! For a top... moreHmm....are you sure you actually own the phone? I have pretty much used or owned them all and having owned the Z2 since its release, early adopter here, I have never had any, repeat ANY of the issues you describe. The only real heating issue is supposedly whilst recording 4K videos which I don't do! Scoring the build quality as 5/10 is plainly laughable. If you don't like the phone, fine, take it back, sell it or whatever but don't come on here telling pork pies! Thanks.
Does anyone notice the issue in "Contacts-Myself-photo"...?? I am unable to add my photo and my contact number. If I add my photo, it gets tilted to the left side and if I add my number it brings a number 440000000.
The screen is still auto sensing, which is realllyyy annnoying :@ :@ camera has heating problem and apps crash after using the cam for 3-4 mins

shaatir, 12 Jul 2014finally i got my z2.....awesome display best display ever....damn so happpy ...!!!what is the average battery life of xperia z2
SONY! Please we need W series #walkman with dual speakers,supper bass and music keys.
I am buying this phone but I'm not able to choose the color.I like the white one but reviews say that white one stains easily.
White Z2 users ...please share your opinion ....
DTR, 13 Jul 2014Well having this phone for the past 4 weeks, I can honestly say I'm not impressed! For a top... moreI totally agree with u, now um trying 2 sell it because it also has screen auto sensing issues which is really annoying :@ 00
shaatir, 13 Jul 2014As compared to SUPERAMOLED displays z2's IPS display wins....it produces more natural colors..... moreUm sorry but you are clearly wrong mate.
Color saturation is measured by color gamut.
Z2 has 129 % sRGB gamut
HTC m8 has 103%
s5 can tune that. It has different gamuts at different modes.
cinema mode: 106%
pro photo mode: 107%
adapt display: 128%
dynamic mode: 150%
So depending on the mode you can make super AMOLED display more or less saturated.
But it's not possible for z2.
Z2's display is great and IMO it's the second best LCD after m8 and the most vivid LCD by far.
But it's a saturated display and don't dare to call it natural. A natural display is a 100% sRGB panel.
Well having this phone for the past 4 weeks, I can honestly say I'm not impressed!
For a top end phone it's very "meh" after coming from a HTC one.
Excellent Battery Life
UI is seriously basic
Camera prone to overheating
Constant app crashes
General overheating issue when pushed for more than a few minutes
These are just a few niggles which are causing me to really start to hate this phone! When it does work, it's great yet that doesn't seem to be that often.
Even talking to someone, after a few minutes the phone is stupidly hot and being from a PC technical background, this is seriously not good for the components housed inside such a small case!
All that heat is pretty much shortening the lifespan so I expect in 12-18 months, lots of owners will be left with nicely designed door stoppers!
Anyhows, when it doesn't keep crashing, the sound output is far superior to any other mobile device I've heard, Display is vibrant, images are crisp and colours don't look washed out.
Camera does require a bit of messing about to get decent shots (stay away from the auto) and you can get some very good shots with zero graining (again, requires some serious tweaking with the settings).
The actual audio quality when making or receiving a call is also very good and there are some setting you can change to improve it even more.
UI is very, very basic along with some of the settings for altering the display, wi-fi, bluetooth and myriad of other things.
Again, not what I expect from a Flagship phone.
After the problems I've experienced and talking to friends, this is one phone (I'm sorry to say) I will not recommend to people.
If I had more time, I would have posted a more in-depth review so apologies if it seems a bit rushed and sparse.
Phone Build 5/10
UI and settings 5/10
