Scott, 21 Mar 2014im an iphone user and im getting sick of people complaining about radio !! god download the ap... morethat's because your used to not having a radio on the iPhone. I have 8gb of music on my s2 and still want to discover new music via free radio not paid for streaming. you have summed up the mentality of Apple - products for people who dont want to think and are happy locked up in a padded cell oblivious to the freedom of the outside world. just like religeon. yes just load your favourite songs and play them over and over again ; )
Tcool, 22 Mar 2014Built-in radio only broadcast local radio stations, how about when you are working in other co... moreof Course Erkan is thinking about himself this is a forum to give YOUR opinion. So we are allowed to say what we prefer. Personally data usage is expensive in my country I'd also prefer a in built radio over streaming or extra devices. I'll keep my S2 until Samsung realises that.
M.G, 24 Mar 2014what ever you want is already provided in Z2 except finger print scanner.. so whats the point ... moreZ2 has no removable battery. Xperia phones have a bad reputation of short battery life as we have seen in the last 5 models.
sonny, 24 Mar 2014Z2 has Ominibalance design and water proof!
Pencil input feature is better than s5*
S5's cam... moreMy friend, it is a matter of choice. One likes Ferrari, the other one likes Lamborghini. Let me point out several aspects:
1. I am not planning to go swimming with my phone, would that be Z2 or S5 or whichever - although it is good to have some sort of protection.
2. I don't care about the heart sensor - still i DO NOT mind it.
3. Megapixels means QUANTITY of pixels - not QUALITY.
4. MHL3 serves for rich people to show off in front of their broke a*s friends with their 4K "SONY TV" :D (i do not own one, nor planning to - however, if you do, i salute you! ;) )
5. My previous S4 had an amazing noise cancelling, so i expect the same from the S5, if not better.
6. Once again, my friend, it is a matter of choice.
Take care! ;)
There are no perfect phone. Yes, i was a little disapoointed when i saw the official presentation and specs,bcoz there was a ton of roumors, but i still think Samsung will make somthing big this year. Either they will bring a Galaxy S5 with Exynos 64bit processor, or they will make a beast in Note 4.
For all people who dont have money to buy a high-end smartphone, go for Motorola Moto G.
ChikenDoe, 24 Mar 2014permission to comment. I agree with you on the design aspect of things. Having said that, I wo... moreA smart and justifiable answer.I too have had the 3 iPhones,two HTC one and now have the Galaxy s4 which I love.Apple makes a great phone but it was dated ,moved to HTC one and they both froze up.Now waiting for the S5.

I stare and work on Sony screens for like hours and hours continuously without any head ache or pain in my eyes!!

- There are currently over 1 Thousand phones(models) in rotation currently throughout the world. For making it into the Legendary category of top phones; Apple and Samsung have gone through a long history of battle. They are amogst the most Elite along w/ other few models. There can always be a demand for upgrades. But giving this Elite phones the benefit of the doubt is only fair. I'm a Samsung phone, but will always respect other models in the Elite category.

K-mart, 23 Mar 2014I hate samsung. I hate all of smart phones in the world. THEY ARE VERY VERY EXPENSIVE! I cant ... moreme 2 bro! i work a lot, but i don't have money for S5 or Z2 or Iphone 5s and....
i hate this world too
after months i can pay for xperia c and buy it, but i think it's not an international phone and not get any major update :( this is SAD :( after all that work ...
i never Seen Kitkat or fingerprint, i miss everythinG even i'm an IT Engineer (master of Science) heh!!! this is SAD
- Jaguar(Iphone) vs Hummer H2(Samsung) - Well, even though Jaguar is a nice Luxury vehicle. I still would prefer to purchase the H2. Because its, what makes me happy. I'm just a Android/Galaxy person. I will always know Iphone is a great phone, just not for me.
Saurav Ghosh, 24 Mar 2014Samsung ain't brainwashing anyone. If people are dumb enough to be brainwashed then anyone can... moreApple is not a worthless phone ... 5S is the fastest phone up to date... it does not lag... quality is good u don't have to run to service centre often (which in case of samsung u hav to )
M.G, 24 Mar 2014what ever you want is already provided in Z2 except finger print scanner.. so whats the point ... moreSamsung ain't brainwashing anyone. If people are dumb enough to be brainwashed then anyone can brainwash them. What do you think about Apple? How do you think they keep selling that worthless phone to millions of Americans?
I ain't a Samsung fanboy, and never will be, but nor I am the person who will loathe Samsung for nothing. I use Samsung, for past five years I have been using them, so using them and then bashing them at the same time will be a disgrace of my character.
S5's design is horrible, same old same old, same boring old I should say. I never liked any Samsung's design after S2. Still I will pick S5 over Z2. Why? One reason is enough for me, and that's the super gorgeous S-AMOLED display. I don't care what people say, but literally nothing can beat that brilliant screen. If one has no care of a good display then there is no doubt that the Xperia will be a good choice over the S5.
PS : I am a huge Sony admirer by the way, always will be.
not me, 23 Mar 2014That's Samsung's job not mine :))cause you probably dont have a job :))
Hey guys just think processor and ram is not a big deal but u got fingerprint scanner and world's best display amoled and water and dust resistant,bezels r great and world's fastest auto focus camera in a smartphone with isocell sensor with great imaging knowledge. Simultaneous Hd video and photo capture,dual video recording,slow motion video capturing,who needs mhl 3 or some crap r u having a 4k TV,hands free mode,air gesture,smart pause,smart scroll all these features if u want u can enable. Don't ever compare with Sony. See videos in YouTube only the build quality is great but even if you drop Ur phone the screen's touch won't work but if u drop a Samsung phone spider cracks will come but the display will work. Z2 u think that it has aluminum bezel wen releases we will come to know
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2014You're in the wrong post, dude! go to Sony and stay thereThis still is not the answer of my question
