Please get a life away from Samsung before you make any more comments, you have no idea what you are on about, better to not say anything than total garbage.

There is no problem on the Z1/Z2 but those phones which don't have it are at a huge loss especially when many phones have flaps to cover those parts up. But several people say having wireless charging not that a big deal. It is.
The word "this" in my earlier post is in reference to the magnetic dock. It's pretty obvious in context to the Z2. -_-

Since you have not done that, the only conclusion to reach is that you are trolling. Consider yourself slayed, Troll.
MHanz, 18 May 2014There is a good reason for that claim. The flap on my Xperai S is broken. Nothing happened... moreDont you understand that dock or magnetic charging cable does virtually the same thing as wireless charging and you dont have to open any flaps. People like talking despite not knowing a thing.

You have either bought a nock off or a defective device. Just take it back and get it exchanged. alternatively you ight have some malware on your android device that's making it overheat restart and kill battery

The flap on my Xperai S is broken. Nothing happened, it didn't fall, it never got hit on that side, nada. It just broke due to the constant pull-push wear and tear of usage.
Flaps will break under constant usage that's their biggest draw back. This sort of wireless charging makes life easy.
I just bought this phone and after using for 3 days, oh boy i'm really dissapointed..it keeps restarting for unknown reasons and the phone itself has some overheat problems..and i'm not meeting up the promised battery life..for just about 4 hours with 1 hr on screen time, with minimal usage, surfing the net and other stuff it already consumed 30% of the battery..:(, why sony..why??..:'(
RCJ89, 16 May 2014Exactly why I don't give sony phones a look in anymore. I used to be a huge sony fan, I bought... moreAll you just wrote is a bag of lies. We all know it and you know it. If you want a phone that rings loud, buy one of the Chinese mobile phones. They have the loudest speakers one can find. No clarity, just crazy high decibels. Most do not even have their ring tones set anymore as phones are mostly on vibrate. S5 is no where clearer than Z2. U are just a liar. Funny how everyone who bashing a phone has a "friend" who has a phone, then wants to exchange it... S5 was out before Z2, u would have had yours first, he would have had some idea of what the s5 is before choosing the z2. Quit lying, liar...
"the difference between Z2 and Z1 is about as big as that between Snapdragon 800 and 801"
I very much disagree. Most reviews are much more positive about the low light photos than gsmarena and that really was the Z1 (compact)'s achilles heel. That and the screen. So they took care of the two biggest shortcomings of the Z1. From that perspective it's a huge difference!
Funny how no wireless charging is a disadvantage, because it has a charging dock which does virtually the same thing.

At the end of the day, phones are just phones.
Just pick what phone you prefer and get on with life.

And the reason it topped that chart is because there are a couple they have not tested yet and it's a combined testing. Not just pictures.
Just pictures the 1020 and 808 are still better.

Taking half a year to copy a device and try to do it feature to feature yet not not overcoming it is beating it how? G Pro 2 is good, but did not best the GN3. And the G2 had a slightly better display than G Pro 2.
And Optimistic UI is just a touchwiz copy lately.
You need to learn some objective facts instead of just being such a defensive fanboy
