Z2 has many of "the best" titles in many fields:
Biggest sensor,Best camera (according to DXO)
Best battery life in all android devices (89 hours in GSMA test)
Best waterproof and build quality,
Dual front speakers only behind HTC one.
In these fields, it's Not only better than s5,but better than all smartphones.
I wonder how much could some one be so cheated to pay for band-aid like s5 with cheap materials and lowest build quality.

at s5 photos better colors, better detalization, better dynamic range
Samsung GS5 is better than Xperia Z2
One m8 was killed by S5,Xperia z2 was thrashed and only find 7a lived to tell the tale.Eagerly waiting for S5 vs LG G3.Then we can settle this once and for all

Oled is better. My links there not passed. Samsung even stopped OLED TV because large panels are extremely expensive. OLED TVs Samsung and LG best of all, much better than panasoniс zt60.
Camera is very important in smartphones
Metall gives a sense of reliability and feelings that thing for ages
qhd is gimmick
[deleted post]Don't want to waste my time on something without knowing what the discussion is about. I have already gone through what the whitepapers have to say on ISOCELL and seen countless samples on flckr under various settings and conditions from the Z1, Z2, Note 3, S4 and S5.
A quick summary would be much appreciated.
Superior Auto mode has 4:3 aspect ratio under camera setting..
when it comes to camera, no further explanation is needed. Nokia can easily annihilate both android devices and apple devices.
excellent Galaxy S5
i hate bloody sony phone dammet
no isocell ~ agree but have OIS+lazer focus
no oled ~ QHD IPS is far better(samsung even stopped OLED TV its not mature tech )
small camera sensor ~ agree but both are not DSLRs
plastic body ~ design matters even S3 and G2 same size (compactness and uniqueness matters)
no waterpoof ~ agree but even dont like the unwanted usb covers G3 is clean and simple design
qhd (bad for battery and soc) - dont agree i got a demo g3 its same battery life of G2 .. more than a day with medium usage.. scaling wont affect CPU , all latest GPU can handle even 4k playback perfectly..
Z2 is the Champ!
Flagship Cell phone of the year 2014.
I don't know if they have obligations to say the 'S5 is better' in day light shots but clearly the Z2 is superior with SuperiorAuto mode on. Manual mode is unmatched on Z2. You just have to look at flckr shots. Not one good shot that can come close from S5. The S4 and Note 3 take better shots than S5 in certain conditions. ISOCELL falls well short of the whitepaper hype.

samsung crappy cheater
they prices higher than z2 even with their crappy exynos processer
cheap faux back
in indian version S5 is no match of Z2
all the way best of sony
No surprises here. The G3 is going to lose as well.
techknow, 04 Jun 2014The s5 is priced at Rs40k vs 46k for z2 in India. Plus Samsung has a bigger presence. Overall ... moremake your fact correct dont just bark up u sammy fan boy
s5 is priced at 51k and z2 is 47k
so dont just speak nonsense
Bigger, higher resolution camera sensor - 1/2.3" 20.7MP vs. 1/2.6" 16MP. In this detailing many times worse. Watch comparing.
More RAM - 3GB vs. 2GB. Applications that use 3 gigabytes does not exist. Android fill even 5 gigabytes for quick launch apps. S5 always have free ram memory.
Stereo speakers for kids
Fingerprint scanner - not need
Heart rate sensor - not need
IR blaster - not need
