Z2's IPS display with X... moreWell, I am not Sony marketing, so I write about what stuck out for me.
I can easily say that the IPS display does not look all that special next to other high-end phones. Sharpness is OK, but contrast is not very good, looks washed out compared to S5 or Find7.
Camera may have highest DxO mark, but have you ever compared the output from Z2 to any other high-end snapper? You'd hate to see a comparison photos.
Design is a matter of personal opinion.
Not commenting on cooling technology, as I can't see it from outside, but it doesn't work as a miracle as mine heated up on the back a lot.
As for the sound quality - I believe I have praised it as beating competition and one of 2 best features, the other being waterproofing, which is marvellous feature.
I don't think I would care about technical details and awards - what I do care about is how thing feels in my hand and how it performs.
Z2 is by no means bad or even mediocre, it is just not as good as Sony (and you) would like to make people believe.
Finally got a back glass protector for this beauty, just to protect it from scratches & fingerprints, I hate to use back covers specially when you have such a good looking phone, spoils the beauty. This is the best smartphone available & I really mean it.

You should read Z2 amazing specifications on GSM arena page:)
Do you know Z2 has MHL 3.0 and Samsung s5 has old MHL version*
Do you know Z2 has 3g RAM and s5 2g RAM?
Do you know Z2 has stereo speakers and s5 hasn't?
Do you know Z2 features info eye*
Do you know Z2 is the best in current market?:)
[deleted post]Don't follow what others say, if you think that Samsung is good & has additional features buy it, no one can force anyone to buy something, afterall both Z2 & S5 are expensive phones so spend wisely. I don't like Samsung's build quality it looks cheap, so if you're spending a hefty amount it's better to buy a solid n'sexy looking phone rather than a cheap one, I bought Z2 last week & i'm highly satisfied with it.
Have a great day.
[deleted post]Dear Dew, Ahmed, KK, or whoever you are, posting praises about Samsung with different names & same ip address won't help you much in misguiding the Z2 users, if you think that your cheap plastic crap is better than Z2 then what are you doing here, go & write poems about your S5 in the Samsung forum, you're at the wrong place dude.

Z2 20.7mp camera is awarded 'the hig... moreIt may be awarded an Oscar, but it still sucks.
I like many things about this phone, but comparing it to the rest on the table, I think there are 2 clear advantages over the others - being waterproof (and I mean really waterproof, not like Galaxy S5), and the sound quality coming out of it.
The screen is OK but not the best. The phone is sleek and nicely designed, but like iPhone and Samsungs, it's starting to get boring.
Where is fails miserably though is the camera department. When you stick that 20+ Megapixels mark next to camera, that builds expectations. And when comparing the photos coming out of it to some other high-end snappers, the quality is just not there. Photos are noisy, soft, and seriously lack details that even a sensor half that resolution would show.
The video camera is not that much better either. Love the idea of 4k recording and motion is smoother than most of others, but… again, the noise especially in dark areas, and the overall softness of the image ruin everything.
Panorama is a joke. And that's probably the biggest put-down, as I expected (from the way Sony marketed this) that Z2 would be Cybershot TX-5 in a phone. The sweep panorama and picture quality on that one were actually excellent, despite the toy being too small for my hands.
That's what has built up the expectations, and I really wanted to love this phone. But it just doesn't do what I expected from it, making waterproofing and sound quality really the only benefits over competition.
And that's not enough for me to keep it.
Hope Sony learns on their mistakes, stop chasing the megapixels and actually make a killer phone that lives up to the hype.
