shakeel, 19 Jun 2014to me this more look like the zr2 not the z2 compact i think gsmarena went to far -_-Good to see another up-going person here, it is so clear this is the ZR2, or V3 for that matter (since ZR was in reality the V2). I cant see any reason why anyone would believe this to be the new Compact.
mtmerrick, 19 Jun 2014I hate this concept of Mini phones. Anything under 4.7" in unusably small, IMHO. 5"&... moreActually a 4.5 inch phone with hardware buttons is as big in usable area as a 4.8 phone with virtual buttons. Should they both be considered "usable" or neither?
way too big for a mini. smartphones are dead. it's all about making high ppi panels affordable now vor VR devices like oculus rift and google glass. us smartphone consumers are the milk cows to financiate that business.
This is the successor of Xperia ZR, which in turn was the successor of Xperia V, in other words the Z2a is the "Xperia V3". Z2 Compact will be considerably smaller.
I hate this concept of Mini phones. Anything under 4.7" in unusably small, IMHO. 5"±.3" is a "normal" Phone, anything 5.7" or higher is a large phone. (5.5" is a gray area depending on bezel size and use of onscreen buttons. I consider the G3 to be a "normal" sized phone and the find 7a to be a large Phone)
So how on earth are you people considering this to actually be the z2compact? There is nothing "compact" or Mini or anything else about this phone. I may not understand or want a tiny Phone, but I understand that there is a niche for them. And this CERTAINLY does not fill that niche.
weight of both devices is still the same. though z2a has less dimensions as well as 200mah less battery
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2014But Sony is more expensive than S5 mini :)Compare the specs before you talk about the price. Gs5 mini is nothing compared to this.
Sony always has complex with words levels.
We talk about mini?don't think so Sony?
5inch for what?for who?
5 inch phone with great bezels don't call mini plz stop your unusual brain we don't need it..
Instead I prefer better screen dont not like fu***e z series ..better ui not lagy ones even 3mg ram..this aptomaztion is very weak u must going for better than this..and to many other issues that I wish Sony put them right.
to me this more look like the zr2 not the z2 compact i think gsmarena went to far -_-
Bhahaha! 5" is compact, according to gsmarena?! Guys, are you on dope? You'd better change the dealer. LoL!:)))
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2014Whoa way better than SGS5 mini.But Sony is more expensive than S5 mini :)
I could not get my head around this article with a 52 screen it could not be called a compact.
I thought "Applesque" same phone with different innards but only a 0.2 inch reduction in screen size?
2 comparison later here is Z2a V z1
