Trever, 16 Feb 2017Exactly, Samsung is lame when it comes to updates and they're half baked too.Samsung has a lot more useful software features than Sony. I don't like Sony's software and they always fail at camera software no matter the quality of the camera lens. XZ is still behind the S7 in terms of picture quality.
for all the samsung fanboys.
Samsung will be using sony batteries on their s8.
Funny how samsung relies on sony more than ever now.

My last phone is Samsung S2 it is a mess in audio quality and unpleasant to hear, the only better way to listen music with Samsung S2 is increase the volume to max level, but it hurt my ear and can't listen for a longer time, the bass is stupidly fake and the treble is perfectly shrill but I can't enjoy the horrible noise/melody.
I change to Xperia Z2 because it is sturdy build and Battery endurance with stamina features and most important it is waterproofing. Sony is also lead with the first Walkman: the soul of the music, and I can listen the music show out with soul. I believe Japan's tech although the Japan's economy not that good, but I know Sony have talent in develop smartphone (including the camera, audio, display etc) and it show my decision is right and I love my Xperia Z2.
Need camera update, too much artifacts ((( and overall quality not so good

I would agree, for the overall package, that the XZ is a superior product.
But htc10 is one of those things touted by many people in the audiophile forum as superior to any other smartphone along side with lgv20 which has a quad dac.
the z3 i know was touted as the smartphone with the best audio quality and people are saying how it went downhill after that.
have you personally tested both phones in headphone experience?

Having mono option is good as it should improve loudness by 5-10db.
