G4 will cost 3 times more.
I heard different things about the 4/64gb version, the read/write speed doubles and benchmark results are good looking, yet you are only paying $100 more.
wut, 15 Apr 2015I would go for a G2 any day, than this...messlg g4 will kill this
sid33, 16 Apr 2015Hows ur battery life??The battery drain isn't really a standby problem. I just had it sitting on my night stand for six hours while sleeping and lost 7% battery... that's fine really. But I lost 2% battery in 5 mins when I started using it.

To me this sounds like a ROM issue which I do hope they fix.
I own the ZE551ML with 32GB Storage(emmc), 4GB RAM, and Z3580.
My results are as follows (power saver turned off):

Marginal is probably an overstatement. I get 12 to 14 hours on a charge, 2 to 3 hours sot. Not good, but good enough to use until there's a fix.
screen is very good as well as the camera. better review on android authority. in fact they placed the zf2 as one of the three best choices under 350$. this phone is a bargain just as one plus one was a year ago.

Or is it strictly in terms of benchmarks?

Camera is like Sony Xperias, the victim of stupendously bad image processing by default. Easy fix. The Ultra Resolution mode really works by the way, take a look at the samples I posted. Significantly better resolution than stock.

Overall pretty crappy with the poor screen, camera, battery and SoC. The 4GB version might make the SoC and even camera better but screen and camera are still bad. The good thing is it is cheap.

As I stated, if you go for the 720p version, your battery life endurance score should increase over the ZE551ML by about 10-15 hours. And it's cheaper. Seems like a good deal to me, eh?
