Z2 got bigger camera sensor S5 no
Z2 got bigger 5.2 display S5 5.1
Z2 got better water resistant S5 lower
Z2 got bigger battery and the best battery performance in GSMArena S5 lower
Z2 got glass and aluminium body S5 plastic
Z2 got more camera features like background defocus Ar effects S5 less
Z2 got better sound quality with stereo speakers and noise cancellation headset S5 No
Z2 got Fm radio with RDS S5 NO
My point is S5 isn't the king of android nor is Z2. Both got their advantages n disadvantages. It is really hard to decide which is better
Prashant, 14 Oct 2014Xperia Z2 has backward Qualcomm MSM8974AB Snapdragon 801,and Samsung S5 has latest MSM8974AC S... moreI won't say S5 is the king of smartphone. In fact I don't even like Samsung phone cause they r too bloated with features that I won't use. Heart rate monitor? Hardly anybody will be using it like air gesture. The ram is 2gb and made of plastic materials. But i definitely agree with u on the camera S5 got better camera than Z2. The pictures comes better but Z2 got a better camera sensor than S5. So I am sure in future updates sony will fix camera software integration. S5 is slower than Z2 it is because Samsung bloated with apps n gimmicky stuffs. Both r great phone n they have advantages n disadvantages, it depends on the user n personal choice

I want to buy this phone, but I am really scared after reading all the self cracking issues on XDA! Has anyone here who had the same experience? Obviously asking to them who hae used the phone for more than three / four months. New users don't count.
Thanks in advance.
PS: I am talking about this issue of course,
5 days with the phone and here is my experience, the design, display is really good but the camera is a downer comparing to other flagship like s5 the camera was a disappointment and performance lags at some places maybe it's sony's software bug, it is ought to get smoother after software updates. In short the hardwares are top notch but software could get better.
Planning to buy Z2 or Z3 but im affraid of the sef breaking issue...need suggestion?
After having this phone for around a month I can say that the quest of having a perfect smartphone has ended, the Z2 has it all, sexy design which is a head turner, great camera, long battery life, good call quality, bright display all these things make Z2 a perfect smartphone.
I just my Sony Xperia now with me. I dont have any problem with it. Good Camera, good processor no lag, good memory. Oh sometimes it becomes hot. Don't worry you can put it on water. Lol. Long battery capacity. Easy pairing. You'll never regret buying this, promise. Compare to other phone? IPhone, hahaha. Short battery.very expensive not worth it. Samsung? Not a fan of Samsung, battery problem too and hate the UI. My friends jealous of my Z2, super cool camera for selfie and taking pictures, not lag games, and I can finish 3-4 movies before battery runs out.
Y is 4g LTE not supported in model number D6502..
I wasn't aware about dis before getting my set
Using this phone is simply fantastic, super battery, great camera and never hangs. definitely beats everything currently available.
I also found the difference between it and Z3 very little (Z3 better battery and slightly better performance) not worth the price difference IMO.

i bought the phone just two days back and i would like to share few things about it.
1. design is awesome.
2.gui is superb.
3.performance is...... wow very fast.
4.video recording capabilities are excellent(4k slow motion capture..... ).
5.no network drop issues call voice quality is also marvellous.
6.vivid colours and triluminous display makes images and videos look very crystal clear on the screen at almost any angle.
7.camera-- good in daylight, below average in low light, very limited options are given to adjust the image quality, lot of noise around the corners of the image appears when you zoom in the image.
8.sound quality is good but little bit low would have been louder.
Before paying the money you should thoroughly check the phone you're buying, when i bought my Z2 the sales guy asked me to check everything touch responsiveness, camera/flash, body, speakers, earphones then he also asked me to make call to check the call quality, so the bottom line is whatever phone you buy check everything & then pay your hard earned money.
I can't stop laughing all fanboys that promoting inferior+less attractive Samsung phones on Xperia z2 forum. go face your daily activities.stop wasting your time here!
I Will Never Not Ever buy sony xperia phone... i bought z2 2 days ago.. and i got foggy camera .. so disappointed i was mad, i took it back after i paid 400 euros ... dont buy this crap brick of the phone .. i went back to Note 3... damn i missed my old buddy note 3

If you are looking for a camera, just go and buy a water proof Sony Cyber-shot camera. They're nice, reliable and will give you better photo quality.
lola, 09 Oct 2014hey guys, i have intrests in this phone, but i compared it on gsmarena with galaxy note 3, why... moreGo with Samsung..
We have 3 Xperia Z2, one Xperia Z Ultra, Z compact, 2 Samsung galaxy note 2, one note 3, one galaxy S4, one galaxy S3, HTC sensation, 2 sensation xe and one HTC M7.
By far, all phones are operating for not less than a year. However, 2 of the newly bought Xperia Z2 got its glass shattered!
Also, the covers I the side are not that strong and the phone is not halt sealed.
Yea Samsung is built out of cheap material. But the light plastic makes it more rugged when it comes to drops.
Logically, what can handle heavier drops, plastic or glass??
You do the math.
If you really want a nice built flagship phone, go for the HTC.
If you don't care much about the build luxury, go ahead and purchase Samsung. It's a heavy user phone.
