semaj, 19 Jul 2014$700 is not that much. Most phones in England are about £550 when they come out which is... moreIt's that much when you consider that the phone itself is available from third parties, new, for US$630 and has been for ages. And you have to pay sales tax if you buy from Sony. And that third party is buying these things retail and making a tidy profit, so they likely paid $500-550 tops.
The markup is, in fact, extortionate.
MobileRogue, 19 Jul 2014Was waiting for this but Z3 launch is two months away.Which means it'll be arriving in the US about five or six months from now.
And priced way too, high, as well. I was seriously considering this until I realized I can pay somebody to import the phone for me, buy two dock, buy the noise-cancelling headphones, buy an 18-month international warranty, and *still* pay pretty much the same as Sony USA wants for the phone by itself plus sales tax.

Anonymous, 20 Jul 2014sony xperia z2 have a complaint on over heating...
haedware is not good
Your comment No good, Sony Rocks!
700 bucks for a phone which will have its successor in 1-2 months. what a lame joke. Besides this trash phone isnt worth over 200bucks. bad camera, ugly bezels, build like cheap phone, ugly and wannabe boomsound but much much worse. what a joke
Guys, i just switched from iPhone5S to Z2....and previously i used Note2
notes on Z2:-
-overheating problem with/w/o 4k video
-problem with playing Facebook video..not resolved
-check sony support to c them
-running 4.4.2...which is not the latest kitkat
-some time problem with exchange server
it's true that camera is not quite good in dark room but it's good in light also about the speaker or audio , its not that loud because it's water resistance.

Anonymous, 19 Jul 2014Too expensive. Find 7a has a better camera and similar specs and is much cheaper. Sony is Not cheap Quality Builds!
Sony has the best design n quality. The only cons is the low quality camera when taking pix in low light or the dark. The tiny flash is not bright enough. Also, the speaker level is below average. The audio output is not as loud as samsung gs and iphones!! It would be a perfect phone if they fix all these probs.
dear lord it's so old, now Z3 era
by the way, don't tempted by waterproof feature
NEVER dip your phone to water even using additional case
or you'll end up break your phone and void warranty,
Sony should stop advertising waterproof/water resist phone, lots of victim already
alexv, 20 Jul 2014I'm sorry my friend but i read many sites writing reviews about smartphones and gsmarena is pr... moreIt's not that gsmarena does not try to maintain impartiality, they do. But the methods employed in their reviews are getting old and deserve to be replaced by new, modern, and more effectuve ones.
Like using a DSLR (Preferably Nikon since they're supposed to be top dog) in the Camera Shootout; adding things like Color Gamut triangles, Delta E measurements (for color accuracy), touch response times etc. To their Reviews. All three could snugly fit in the display section of their review. But by adding these items, everyone of us will be able to judge the devices on a much more leveled field.
For example, gsmarena loves to call the GS5 and 2014 amoled screens from samsung as the 'Best', but if they actually measured delta E values themselves, they'd know that even in the most accurate display mode, the amoleds exaggerate everything a little too much. But instead their claim for it being the best comes solely from a tech-cum-promo video from Samsung.

700$ for a overrated phone? Not to mention it is late for 3 months and a newer flagship will come in just 2 months. Go home sony you're drunk.

Writers know how to atleast put some honey into lemonjuice to make it more healthy but GSMarena put some seeds into it and shake shake shake in favor of their favorite instant powdered juice. And I really hate that kind of blogging.
