I will not buy this phone for three reasons:
1. The contents of the package sold in my country (Philippines) lacks the premium accessories that the US and UK versions have. The headset is not the noise canceling one..what they included is the one similar to the headset found in the midrange Xperia T2. And there is no charging dock included. What's worse is that the price is the same as the US and UK versions.
2. This marketing strategy of Sony clearly discriminates us in the developing countries.
3. There is a gap between the glass and the metal frame which is a proof of construction flaw.
I will forgo probably the flaw but not the discrimination Sony implies in shortchanging us with CHEAP acessories in an otherwise "PREMIUM" product.
I'd just bought Z2 -/+ a month ago. After doing some usage tests, I also found 2 fundamental, crucial, and ridiculous issues: FIRST, after using Camera (less than 2 minutes) either to capture still image or to record video, the Cam is ALWAYS force-closed for overheat reason; and SECOND, I got casing gap (glass misalignment) on top left side of my Z2's display. This is potentially waterproof problem. What A Great SONY Smart???-Phone, huh?
I have better benchmark results on my Z2. Maybe it improved after the last firmware update? No idea. Still very happy with it, it just rocks :)
i in doubt about z2 and this one here https://www.nttdocomo.co.jp/product/smart_phone/sh04f/topics_01.html
killerz, 02 Jun 2014This phone xperia z2 and galaxy s5 kick ass htc m8,lg,iphone 5s,blackberry and nokiaAgreed. Sony came a long way and is showing some serious flex now.
I waited for a long time to upgrade my old acro s phone to this phone. The z was the first and needed refinements. The z1 improved but still need more. Finally the z2 came with current technologies that are imo the best anybody could have obtained. Waterproof, premium (I'll pass on the perforated plastic case), fast, good camera, non-obtrusive interface. The 3gb ram though made me set on this phone.

Sony delay Xperia Z2 until summer release because of LG G3 and Apple Iphone 6.

It will be even Better than Z2. I'm still agreeing Z3 is for next year.
And Z2 is still amazing now.

dont know,that info is hard to come by,just read the info in a review
"All three phones also come with 16GB of onboard storage out of which, the
Z2 offers the most amount of usable space (11.5GB),
followed by the M8 (10GB)
and lastly the S5 (about 8GB)."
Anonymous, 24 May 2014There will always be people giving logic and dumb people rejecting it because of fanboyism
Plus No Problem with actual users posting Sony cell experiences, but by reading postings you know you don't even own any of them .
No logic with Questions you have posted and comments!
