I'd pick the Z2 based on the fact that it's a completely enclosed device, which works in its favor of being water proof, the removable back cover of the S5 just looks cheap and I swear there will be problems with the rubber coming off (effectively removing it's waterproofness).
Plus Samsung releases that crabby octa core to half the world... Wtf Samsung? If you are going to make a phone, just make it the same everywhere lol.
I chose the Z2 over the S5 mainly because it looked better. I don't like anything faux.
The one thing I do love on my Z2 is the Facial Recognition to unlock instead of a pin or a pattern or fingerprint. So much easier and faster.
Also the noise canceling ear buds are amazing!
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2014Glass is the worst material for a phone.I just watched a vid of Z2 being thrown sidewards , flat back , and flat front falls .. The screen isn't even scratched and wasn't cracked ..
I think that galaxy s5 is a great phone but i chose z2 because they are the same!!! Just z2 has a better looking ^^

Amoled has many more disadvantages compared to LCD???
So LCD being saturated, having fake blacks, fake whites, bad contrast, more reflective, more space consuming, more power consuming, un even lgith with bright spots, having more leakage, non flexible, and slower response is more advantages???????
It's only advantages are easier to produce white with less power and longer life span.
The S5 has the overall better display. That is fact. Not preference. What you personally prefer is different.
It has much better camera software tuning.
Better headphone output. More functional software.
Better ergonomics, removable battery, better grip/comfort, better durability, heart rate, and finger print...If fm counts so do these.
Z2 has speakers, fm, better low light/stabilization, better water protection, and shutter key.
Super AMOLED displays are best den all...and dats the only reason y samsung charges high prices for its fone...the clarity and true colors are displayed in AMOLED screens...It have only prob in Sunlighy bt dat also is more over solved in S5...

S5 has bad display. Why? Because Amoled has a lot of problems and disadvantages compared to LCD.
The only advantages of S5 are the removable battery and better camera.
The Z2's andvantages are the FM radio and LCD display.

S5 has best display out there at the moment. (Because it's amoled has more factual and technological advantages than any other display. And this is true for most users despite the negative twists of online haters.)
As well as removable battery and better camera.
Z2 has better speakers and fm radio.
Obviously there is way more to it, but these are what you mentioned only.
The advantages compared to each other:
- Samsung Galaxy S5 has replaceable battery and better camera.
- Sony Xperia Z2 has FM radio and better display (because LCD is better than Amoled).
These advantages are true generally for most phones from these brands.
Gray Fox, 30 Jun 2014what about the 1-Noise Cancelation 2-Material :sony has a glass and metalic material Glass is the worst material for a phone.
[deleted post]Then the same translation below applies to you. So because the s5 factually has a good set of advantages over the z2, but you are a bias fanboy who prefers Sony means GSM arena is bias?
That does not even make logical sense. Lay of the hurt.
mortuus, 26 Jun 2014Yes lol the S5 has better camera and video quality, better display, better sound.. there is no... moreBecause z2 has d best display ever for smartphones and if u talk camera part z2 record 4k vdo with 58mbps and s5 record 4k vdo with 35mbps. Z2 has mhl support 3.0 which can play ur 4k vdo on tv in 4k.. In s5 dey gv mhl 2.0 which means u can record ur vdo in 4k but it play on 1080p..
