AnonD-327940, 06 Nov 2014Bro is there a problem with wifi ? i hv a 2.4ghz router will it be a prob ? i wanna buy this phone Hey man, I haven't encountered any problems with WIFI. WIFI reception is better than my previous phone, Xperia SP. However whether the Z2 handles the specific 2.4 GHZ bands correctly I'd suggest you to look online for technical specifications regarding the WIFI antenna, as I'm not into these specifications. However I assume it's safe to suggest that most WIFI bands will be supported, but note that I don't know if 2.4GHZ is an uncommon frequency.
Solzark, 06 Nov 2014Bro I have Xperia Z2.
To get the best battery performance how should i use stamina mode and l... moreIf you are around a charging spot every day, I'd advice you to just only use the STAMINA mode. The low battery mode and ULtra stamina mode are only of importance when you are not able to charge your device within let's say a day and you have only 20% or less battery backup left: these modes are designed to let your device stay in standby mode efficiently. However you might as well turn your device off in such scenario lol.
About the STAMINA mode, you can turn it on. When you turn off your screen the device shuts down mobile data / WIFI which gives you a longer standby time. However, when you want to get notified whether you receive a facebook/whatsapp message / third party app message, you have to include it into the STAMINA mode list. You will always get calls and text messages regardless of having the phone and SMS app included in the STAMINE mode. Note that when you include an app like Whatsapp into the STAMINA mode exceptionlist its function somewhat fails to come alive: whatsapp has to be checked very frequently by your device so it won't be able to shut down the data connection like STAMINA mode is intended. However it does help improving standby battery lifetime as other apps like Facebook / twitter/ whatever won't use resources in the background, as long as you don't include them in the STAMINA mode list either.

I noticed a gap on the rightcorner between the screen and the alu frame. Never am I going to dip it into the water that's for sure.. still the whole waterproofing feature seems completely worthless. They might as well give it the same IP rating as S5 wich is only waterresistant and not waterproof.
Hey ya'll? This sony xperia Z2 is my first sony after a number of Samsungs and I'm more than highly disappointed. When my phone dropped once, just once, I've suffered from serious network issues. Took it to the sony shop for fixing, but no changes..I'm to take it back next week and I'm annoyed!! On top of that, my wi-fi keeps dropping and refuses to connect almost all the time. On top of that, I don't get whatsapp notifications or message notifications when my screen light goes off, I have unlock it for the notification to come in. I'm HIGHLY disappointed with sony, and this will definitely be my last ever sony phone. Samsung is waaaaaay better, stronger wi-fi connection, no unnecessary network issues despite dropping my Samsung phone severally... I'm mad!! I am!!
got my xperia z2. It got ruined after a month first time dipped in the water with all tabs closed. fixed it. got ruined in 2 months and cost me 150$ to fix it back in addition to having to use a reserve nokia phone for a month. It was a good phone but i can't trust sony anymore

Yeah..I got Xperia Z2!! luv using this...but I doubt about its battery backup...once its been shown with 99%..within next 10 min..it shows as 96%!!
Is there any particular way to hav gud battery backup...
Rest of all..Its gud..superb!! very fast processor..!!
It lags with call reject for specific callers...any way external apps helped in it.
Hi Guys, fellow users of Z2, advice me how to avoid my phone to hang up. When it hangs nothing works; you can not receive the call, not access any function. What I do is remove the chip so that it restarts, as of now I am becoming bored. I like my phone its difficult disqualify it because of this only one thing.

The big icons are a pain in the ass though.
If ppl have questions regarding the Z2 feel free to ask me!
