Techno J., 01 Apr 2014Well, we should wait until end of this year to know who wins, Xperia Z2 or HTC M8. One advise ... moresony also won best design award go check it here http://blogs.sonymobile.com/2014/03/24/sony-red-dot-deisgn-awards-2014/
also if you're gonna base it on statistic here. htc one 2013 and xperia Z1 has identical score 8.4 basce on design features and performance, so even if htc one won the best smartphone award it's not surprising as they have close voting results, but this time it is different Z2 has more votes.
=if you are gonna ask me which is more trustworthy? votes or awards? i will say votes, because votes resemble the people's opinion. while awards can change every year, just like last 2012 samsung won the best mobile award, 2013 it's htc. so you see award is not consistent you'll never know sony might grab the award for 2014. so as i said for now we can only rely on people's vote and opinion until the awarding comes.
past is past and we must look forward for the future.

One advise I can give to you, don't just evaluate phone just looking at the votes. Who knows those voters actually know anythings about phones.
Last year HTC One has won
* Best design award.
* Global Mobile Awards(GMC) Best smartphone award.
So, which one is more trustworthy? Votes or awards from independent parties.
I'm exactly sure HTC One will success over Xperia Z2. Because, Z2 is just a redesign of Z1.

Techno J., 01 Apr 2014Well, we can't consider it as a valid method to evaluate the success of the each manufacturer ... morewell we can't also consider your link to be a valid method to evaluate the success of the new phones as Z2 is not yet out in the market. your link points us to the past and we are talking about the future here which is z2, m8 and S5. so what i'm trying to point is there are more people who wants the Z2 rather than the s5 or the m8. so more or less when Z2 is made available it will dominate the market share that your talking about.
also i want to point out base on user ratings here on gsm arena your m8 is only around 8.4 design 8.2 features 8.4 performance. against the 9.1 9.1 9.2 of sony xperia Z2 which means there are really more people here that wants or beleives that the z2 is their favorite than m8
hawraman, 31 Mar 2014Z2 isn't behind them,in contrast it's ahead of them,,your logic is so simple,,what you claimed... moreWell, by personal opinion is you don't have any idea of what is HTC M8. Lets me explain it's new cool features.
1 Motion Launch - You can answers to a call without pressing any button.
2 UFocus - You can focus a photo even after taking a photo.
3 Dot view Case.
4 3D Dimension of the photo.
5 Copy and paste a subject in a photo.
6 Totally new gestures and motion pickups, which means; you don't need to press the power button to wake up the display. You can do your simple tasks just motions.
7 New Zoe camera features.
8 Duo Camera.
I can't explain every thing here, just watch these videos. I know those features are not in Xperia Z2.
I challenge you, If Xperia Z2 have really cool features than HTC M8 you can prove me here. I'm fully aware of M8, Xperia Z2 even Galaxy S5.
Heart Beat Sensor :- Sony Smart Band
Finger Print:- iPhone 5
Water Proof:- Sony Z
Display tech :- Apple
Any New invention ????
NO NO NO
ohcomeon, 31 Mar 2014well that is your opinion against other who voted that Z2 is their favorite among m8 samsung g... moreWell, we can't consider it as a valid method to evaluate the success of the each manufacturer or phone. We evaluate the success of the devices just evaluating market share, no of units sold and awards. Your point of view is not so valid. Just think are those voters who voted to their favourite phone, are they really Z2 users, are they fully aware about the phone. Probably can be or can't be.
Let's move on to real life statistics. Just visit to the below mention link.
This report is regarding US smart phone subscribers market share in October 2013. Sony is nowhere in the list. HTC has 6.6% market share and Sony must be even lower. So, HTC is step ahead than Sony.

No wonder that Samsung is so successful. One of the most important thing to consider when buying a phone is the "REPLACEABLE BATTERY". You will not worry about buying a new phone when the battery dies. You can just buy a new battery.
Sony Z2 and HTC M8 does not allow you to replace the battery. It is not ideal if you plan to use it for a long term.
S5 has the best display Displaymate has ever tested..
Techno J., 31 Mar 2014Just look at the Xperia Z2, it's just a redesign of Z1.
