faeldk, 19 May 2014The only thing z2 is better than Note 3 is its bezels, and water proofing. Nothing else. Displ... moreZ2 is ordinary compared to the Note 3 in features. I don't hate it. Z2 is something I can recommend to people who AREN'T power users since it doesn't have a REMOVABLE battery, even with a good battery life. 12 hours of usage isn't enough for someone like me - you need to charge it in the afternoon if you want to last till evening. Light users can go up to 3 days.
Normally, the cycles of battery efficiency is between 300 to 500. Think about it, ALL batteries will fail sooner or later especially it expanding or ballooning INSIDE. So, internal fixed batteries have so much more disadvantages.
Z2 isn't overall bad. It just don't match the sheer number of useful features the Note 3 and S5 offer. In a blind camera test where voters did not know which smartphone is taken with, the S5 came out as the best. It was done by Phone Arena.
Z2 note 3
Build quality-------Replacable Batary
Beter Camara--------usb 3 port
Water&dust proof----5.7 Amoled screen with almost

Look for reviews on Youtube, to show all the advantages of Note 3, the videos takes at least one hour of demonstrations.
note 3 is so so great smartphone ever..the features are so fantastic, the sketchbook did help me a lot for sketching....love it!

Z2 has many advantages such as built quality, premium design, ... moreWrong again.
GSM Arena review of the Z2 audio:
"Somewhat surprisingly, when you plug in a pair of headphones, there is quite a lot of distortion - both intermodulation and harmonic. The other readings remain rather good, but that's not quite enough to save the day for the Xperia Z2.
...Sadly volume levels are below average either way, but that doesn't matter as much as the clarity of the sound."
GSM Arena review of the Note 3 audio:
"The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 showed exceptionally clean audio output in our audio quality test. The phablet posted some of the best scores we have seen in both parts of the test and garnished them with decent volume levels. It's not the loudest we have seen, but it's loud enough for 99% of the occasions.
Impressively, there's virtually no distortion when you plug in a pair of headphones. Except for the minor bump in stereo crosstalk the output is barely affected."
All you're stating of how bad the Note 3 is, are baseless jealous rants to tell yourself you have a superior taste about your IMAGINARY Z2. Even that earphone test has sound distortions as reported by GSM Arena.
All your comments show how obviously UNCONSCIOUSLY you ARE VERY impressed with how the Note 3 works, and you just need to viciously keep bashing it to feel good about yourself, even if it means making up things up as you go.
Pretty sad, really.

The note 3 is a BEAST of all phones,forget your cheap looking z1s and z2s, get your hands 9n this BEAST and the worlds your oyster,enjoy note 3 users !
[deleted post]Other predictions you will say:
"Note 3 cheap plastic" (but you pretend to have the plastic T2 Ultra)
"S pen useless"
"T2 Ultra cheaper"
"Z2 has this super cooling system" (yet it overheats after 3 minutes of 4K recording)
"Z2 has Truliminous, Bravia, etc., etc., etc..." (but those are mere saturation apps that add more Reds and drain more power from the Z2)
"Hairsplitting (whatever that means!) apps useless"
"S Pen makes Note 3 lag."
You see, I already know your shallow contents without links to proof or deep explanation that explains why your sentence is valid and is indeed FACTUAL.
This is coming from someone who told us that the Note 3 was clumsy since it was large, and then brags supposedly getting the BIGGER T2 Ultra.

[deleted post]Stop pretending like you don't know anything about the Note 3.
Granted that the Z2 is WATER-RESISTANT, and the Note 3 is obviously not, what can the Z2 UNIQUELY CAN only do that the Note 3 CAN'T?
The note 3 can/has:
1. Active Wacom digitizer. The Z2 probably just has that terrible pencil input capability.
2. Removable battery to extend or to swap to a fresh battery when needed - No need to carry a more bulky power bank like you were suggesting before.
3. 5.7" Super AMOLED FHD screen - accurate colors in movie mode if one needs it, but over all fantastic contrast with wide CLEAR viewing angles than LCD based screens.
4. Universal infrared remote control that can control appliances or equipment with IR controlling - I can control just about any TV, projectors and the airconditioner where I work, and live.
5. USB 3.0 for 10 times faster file transfers to my laptop.
6. Thermometer sensor - especially when I need to inspect airconditioning temperatures for projects.
7. Split screen muti-tasking - useful for note taking for researching internet sources and hotting them down with S Note using the S Pen.
8. Ambient sound adjustment to cater to your personal hearing frequencies.
9. A 4K video recording function that DOES NOT OVERHEAT, unlike the Z2.
10. Smooth clear 60fps 720p video recording.
11. Wireless charging - by getting the S Charging Cover or a circuit patch to put in.
12. Built-in GIF with a great editing tool that lets you freeze or animate areas you want.
13. MORE internal memory - the Note 3 is usually 32GB of internal space, granting 26GB+ of user space as opposed to the Z2's only 16GB model.
Try coming up with a list to counter the above. Try hard. Prediction- you will say the S pen is a useless stick.
