The reviews lie.
M8 speakers have amplifiers, Z2 don't. No way Z2 can match the loudness of M8. But Z2 speakers are great if you compare it with other phones like Galaxy S5, cause it's stereo, not mono like most phones. But M8 speakers are in a category of their own, which is unmatched.

Hi,I got the phone this Tuesday,after playing with it a bit around i found that camera is off-centered and there was a gap.I said to myself that fine as long as it does not effecting my phone.But yesterday i noticed a dead pixel on the top right corner and i decided to replace it.I am going tomorrow to the service center.Don't know if they will replace it or not..
I bought the phone here in India and sold it in 5 days because of poor call quality and heating issues. Phone gets warm even if you speak for 5mins and under normal browsing conditions. Since its a waterproof phone - call quality is average, you need to set volume to max to hear clearly. Even then voice is bit tinny and not rich. It was a major deal breaker to me since I cannot compromise on voice quality. The phone otherwise is great. If these two are major considerations for you, then you have to look elsewhere.
[deleted post]Calm down before you have a stroke, and try to think straight. The heatpipe transfers heat away from the chipset but not out of the phone, the heat still has to dissipate from the phone itself, so the phone heats up.
Sorry but thats just the laws of physics, heatpipe cannot magically cool a phone or anything else, just transport the heat to another place, and that another place is still inside the phone unless you see heatpipes sticking out from the Z2?
androsxz2, 22 May 2014I am so scared my new z2 heating upto 50 degree Celsius while downloading LoL, and 50 C is dangerous for electronics since when? Its nothing, theres no human parts inside a phone that requires 37 Celsius. Silcone, PBC, metals inside the pone, even the plastic, can tolerate hundreds of degrees.
Look up the youtube video of the chinese chef who boiled his Xperia Z, thats 100 Celsius, it was turned on and took no damage from it, and thats no surprise, 100C is a very low temperature when looking at the big picture. Silicone melts at 1414 C, copper at 1085 C. But, there are always hotspots within a CPU, and they do not want to go near the upper limit but stay as far away as practically possibible and therefore many CPUs has a shutdown temperature of only 105 C, its way too low but for a phone thats ok since it would get uncomfortable to hold at 50 C, 60 C can give you burns, the human body is insanely fragile and that is often accounted for in electronic devices: The human limits and not the components.
As a Z1 user & sony phone user since SE's days I'm glad to see Sony is improving on making mobile phone after taking over Sony Ericsson. I hope Sony can improve more on the camera. most China phones like hwawei, oppo have much better front camera (5MP) which is provided by sony & could produce much better selfie picture but sony itself still using lower quality sensor. I have Hwawei honor 3c too, & its front camera, its much better than the 1 on Z1. another problem with sony phone is the LED flash which is much dimmer compare to other phone. Hope sony sould improve.
Anyone knows,in Indonesia this phone include noise cancellation or just simple headset..? Please help me guys
[deleted post]I've had my Z2 for about 2 weeks now and the combination of the feel of the glass & the front facing speakers made it a winner for me. I previously had a bunch of Samsung phones, which I enjoyed too.
But if anyone says the z2 doesn't heat up they're most certainly wrong.. I've found it gets hot when using Navigation/Google Maps & transfering files onto it. It's also a bit to quick to turn the camera app off, that's with regular still photos not 4k.
Wouldn't change it though, I still reckon it was the best phone for me.
Imran, 20 May 2014HEY none of these android phones have 4g in india if u go with lg the lg g2 is a very great p... moreReally if u can shell out 40k I don't think 10k xtra will make a gr8 difference. Yes z2 is better wid larger and BETTER IPS LCD compared to tft lcd of z1. Also dual speaker is a big upgrade. Battery is larger and not to mention minor processor upgrade. But just for reference, m8 camera is worst amongst all the current flagships though it has the best loudspeaker. LG seems to have it all balanced, none outstandingly good none horribly bad. Sammy, hate that name for practicing double standards. US and Europe versions of s3 had 2 gb ram so got 4.4 upgrade, Asian version had 1 gb ram so stay content with 4.3.
