I Just wanted to share my experience with my Xperia Z2 which i bought on the month of Jan'2105.
In the beginning days battery last more than 2 days with continously switching on of Mobile Data but after updating it to Lollipop (5.0.2) battery didn't last for a day.
When i enquire about the problem in the service centre,they didnt have any solution about this except updating again and the same problem persist after updating in service centre.
When i enquired in the store they told once you will get the update of 5.1 you will not have the problem.
Now i got the update but the problem increases i feel.
The only problem is with battery.
Camera and Looks wise phone is just awesome.Sometimes i feel to change the phone but i still love the phone coz 3gb ram,which never hangs,16gb internal.20.7 mp camera just awesome.Even if the front camera z only of 2mp,its clarity is good.
There is no difference in Z2 and Z3.
If someone wants to buy then go for z2.

Speaking of using it for long. Mobile technology is very fast so don't expect it will be up to par with other phones after 2-3 years. Right now, Z2 specs is upper midranges specs same as M5 and Samsung A7 but better in other aspects (only in front cam it is inferior). Next year, the z2 will still be a midrange but on 2017 its going down as a low-mid phone, same with 200-250- dollar phone by that time but it will still work nonetheless.
As a comparison, I bought my xperia sola on 2012 (midranger), by 2015 (4 years after) it's now a low-end phone, same as 150 dollar phone but it still works.
Basically, the Z2 will still rock for about 1-1.5 years but after that you'll feel the need to change phone same as with all other brands.
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2015Go for lgIt is up to you to decide not others.
should I buy this phone? I mean it's been a long time for this phone's release. It's may be around 2 years old and I'm going to use it for a long period. Will it get retired by the time. And also tell me if there is any heating issue or any lagging issue with this phone. which OS is suitable for this phone 4.4 or 5.0 ?
flamedscull, 03 Aug 2015Xperia Z2 or LG G3?????Please guys help me!!!! Go for lg

kunal, 05 Aug 2015should I go for xperia x2 or oneplus 2 ? both the phones cost nearly same. where sony is a top... moreZ2 over One plus two
1. Better camera resolution (20mp is still 20mp at good light it's better than 13 mp)
3. Noise cancellation compatible
4. Stereo speakers
5. Better ui (the one on one plus looks cheap, same with other cheap phones)
6.Great design and build quality (subjective. IDK which of the two is better)
One plus two over Z2
1. Larger screen
2. Faster processor which probably have heat problems
3. Front cam, OIS
IDK what's wrong with the users here but my Z2 on 5.1.1 is blazing fast!
Just a tip. I don't have fb messenger installed. I heard that it lags any phone.
Anyway, I'm so satisfied with my phone.
BTW, it feels like it heats up more on 5.1.1 when used on heavy tasks but I just wash it with water and it solves the problem.
BTW, just a tip, most people here go are the ones with problems about their phones. Satisfied customers seldom go to this forums so be wary.
DaRkmN, 06 Aug 2015How am i upgreat my z2 from 5.0.2 to 5.1??????
Please help me.What is your firmware?
You can use flashtool.
I've had my Z2 for 10 months now, was working perfectly until after a couple months after I updated to 5.0.2 lollipop, the phone started restarting itself, more frequently as time passed until it won't even power on. The phone just freezes before it finishes turning on. What could be the problem?
