Can I use USB power delivery on this device? I have aukey 18w adapter and I want to use it
Been using it for 5 years. And it is still working great. Battery still lasts almost 2 days.
I really want extra camera's now though to zoom in and out, so it's time to move on.
Best cell phone ever, and updated to android 8, not even think of undo yet.
Really a extremely reliable smartphone going on for more than 5 years now. Other than overheating and a few minor issues it has been great in it's service.
It's my 5th year really solid phone ever had, used HTC which drain-up battery.....this was great phone added 128GB lot more space. But few weeks realize that heats up little and hold for less than a day only. Thinking of change to Oneplus 6 256GB seems great reviews I read so far.....anyone idea about.
I have a really great experience with CarbonROM cr-6.1 (Android 8.1), planning to switch to Android 9 now (CarbonROM or AICP maybe)

I actually re applied the thermal but it still overheats a bit. I still get 4 hours of SoT. T-mobile on this is a bit shotty. Planning on getting a oneplus 7 pro.
Awanama, 28 Apr 2019in 2019 still good phone if u're not heavy users, the lollipop roms better than mmAlmost on my fifth year and it still holds up pretty well.

I've had this phone for 3 years now and I needed to fix the battery twice. It never lagged much and I admired the responsiveness but there were just too many issues with the phone.
I didn't get the phone from the official store but from dealer, it seemed unused. It started having battery problems about a year later, and kept shutting off at 70% battery, so I got it fixed. 2 years later and my phone fell and the screen broke (the durability is good, I have dropped my phone many times and it came out without a scratch), so I got it fixed along with the battery because apparently the battery had a chance of exploding. After that, my phone started getting extremely hot, the battery started draining faster and the responsiveness was reduced, I had to click harder and wait longer. A week ago my screen started glitching and clicked everywhere randomly, opening apps and closing them, switching on bluetooth, etc. Not sure if it was the screen that was causing this.
There were other problems too, even before i replaced my screen, like when I use the camera for more than 2-3 minutes it automatically closes the app, saying that the camera has overheated. The camera quality is okay, not too bad. The charging flap fell off and the rubber around it (to make the phone waterproof) fell off after 1 or 2 years, making it no longer waterproof. It overheats when playing simple games that use less than 300mb. It would also randomly restart at times. The speaker wasn't good enough, either.
There may be more issues but I can't remember them right now. It wasn't completely trash but still needed a lot of improvement.
I tried to swap it with a S7 Edge, but Z2 is far better in key features. It has double tap and gloves mode. The last is very important to me because I ride a bike, so I don't care about the double performance and the fingerprint sensor of the S7.
Sony Z2 rules!!! :D
in 2019 still good phone if u're not heavy users, the lollipop roms better than mm
I like its picture quality and I would recommend it to a friend. It's the best mobile ever. I like it.
Mine's coming up on 5 years now, and I have been overall pleased. It still has pretty good specs, even by today's standards. Mine only overheats when I record more than a few minutes of 4k video, but the camera has been great. My only beef has with reception, which seems to have been something that's happened overtime, and may have more to do with my network, T-mobile. It seems to have an issue with hopping or reconnecting to towers when I am mobile, or if I lose signal, then come back into range, to resolve I have to reboot. I am finally thinking of upgrading to address these issues. We'll see if T-Mobile's new extended LTE provides value or is just marketing hype. Not sure what to replace it with though. Want unlocked device, killer camera that shoots RAW and 4k, expandable storage, and supports 600 and 700mhz bands.
This phone is unusable by today's standard, all early z-series had sensitive touch display and the keyboard doesn't function very well, and also prone to ghost touch. I guess everything has it's days.
Many Sony xperia z2 users are complaining overheating and battery drain issue...
the overheating in normal mode and battery drain issue is cause by a hardware.... Nothing cant stop the overheating issue unless that hardware is removed on the phone....... how can,, recording 4k video and then make the phone to overheat and drain battery fast....
the problem is the back camera.. which cause the phone to overheat
Remove the sony z2 back glass panel to gain access on the mother board now
remove or disconnect the camera cord connected on the board
all the overheating in normal mode and battery drain are fixed....
Had mine for more than 4 years. It's still really quite good. Still get 3-4 SoT. No lag or reboots on my still running marshmallow. Beautiful screen. It does overheat quite a lot if I watch heavy videos or played games.
