guys, can you please give me an opinion which phone should i buy? iphone 5s or xperia z2?
AnonD-183089, 02 Oct 2016does it deserve to upgrade from z2 to z5 ?I don't think so, but if you a long time don't have what to tell to your friends you can upgrade.
AnonD-61409, 01 Oct 2016Hi.
Would you elaborate a little more about the Z2? How much of screen on time? Any heatin... moreI can't really remember the exact amount of on-screen time, but I guarantee you it is among the best you will have seen in a phone, only the Z3 compact has better longevity than the Z2 in terms of popular phones from big brands.
As I said, I could get through the day no matter what, usually I would charge once every 1.5 - 2 days, and that is with me being a heavy user, I still remember how amazed I was with the battery when I first got the phone, since I was coming from a phone with an abysmal battery life.
For a year and a half, the battery lasted pretty well, but I'm gonna buy a new one these days, it seems depleted now.
Regarding heating, that usually occurs when you record videos, or play heavy games, but since I seldom do any of the above, I don't really have much of a heating problem with it.
Another thing is, reading reviews on the internet, I was scared about the front/back glass cracking easily if I dropped it, and maybe I've gotten lucky, but I've dropped my phone like 50 times, and it hasn't broken yet, and I hope it doesn't.
This phone is the best purchase I ever made, it's the best phone of it's generation hands down. It is easily rootable which is a must for me, and the Sony UI is the best, no laggy TouchWiz, and you can uninstall the bloatware Sony apps if you root it.
If you can get it at a good price, go for it, you won't regret it, it's still a great phone, even by today's standards. I've yet to see Sony make another phone as good as the Z2, because lately Sony's phones have been having subpar battery life, sure camera ain't the best out there, but if you're not obsessed with taking the best photos, then don't hesitate to go for it.

Been using my Z2 for 2 years now, when the battery was new, it was pretty damn good, easily get you through a day of HEAVY usage, the Z2 is probably the only Sony phone that was the best of its generation, better than Samsung, LG and HTC.

I plan to buy a brand new Z2. It's much cheaper than a new Z5. I'm using a very old Xperia ZL right now and I'm quite pleased with it. I just need a little improvement. I don't see that good investment in the Z5, for its price, right now.
I'm going to buy a Z2 or a LG V10 if the latter confirms not to be suffering from sudden death problem like the LG G4.
I kind of like Sony Xperia some more than LG, too.
Thank you :)

Moving water can easily get to open the flaps, specially if they are worn out like after 2 years of usage...

I guess my Z3 unit was dying or something. Haha. I'm a bit scared now to buy Z2.
Looks like I'll be getting a Z2...
I'll await some more replies :)

My question was referred to an abnormal heat. Do you think the Z2's camera will shut down because of the heat when I'm taking some 6 or 8 pictures? Does it shut down while recording videos? The Z3 I had used to do that. But, I could play games though it also heated up, like normally any smartphone does.
I hope some more input from you guys :) Thank you for your replies.
