shaatir, 13 Jul 2014As compared to SUPERAMOLED displays z2's IPS display wins....it produces more natural colors..... moreUm sorry but you are clearly wrong mate.
Color saturation is measured by color gamut.
Z2 has 129 % sRGB gamut
HTC m8 has 103%
s5 can tune that. It has different gamuts at different modes.
cinema mode: 106%
pro photo mode: 107%
adapt display: 128%
dynamic mode: 150%
So depending on the mode you can make super AMOLED display more or less saturated.
But it's not possible for z2.
Z2's display is great and IMO it's the second best LCD after m8 and the most vivid LCD by far.
But it's a saturated display and don't dare to call it natural. A natural display is a 100% sRGB panel.
Well having this phone for the past 4 weeks, I can honestly say I'm not impressed!
For a top end phone it's very "meh" after coming from a HTC one.
Excellent Battery Life
UI is seriously basic
Camera prone to overheating
Constant app crashes
General overheating issue when pushed for more than a few minutes
These are just a few niggles which are causing me to really start to hate this phone! When it does work, it's great yet that doesn't seem to be that often.
Even talking to someone, after a few minutes the phone is stupidly hot and being from a PC technical background, this is seriously not good for the components housed inside such a small case!
All that heat is pretty much shortening the lifespan so I expect in 12-18 months, lots of owners will be left with nicely designed door stoppers!
Anyhows, when it doesn't keep crashing, the sound output is far superior to any other mobile device I've heard, Display is vibrant, images are crisp and colours don't look washed out.
Camera does require a bit of messing about to get decent shots (stay away from the auto) and you can get some very good shots with zero graining (again, requires some serious tweaking with the settings).
The actual audio quality when making or receiving a call is also very good and there are some setting you can change to improve it even more.
UI is very, very basic along with some of the settings for altering the display, wi-fi, bluetooth and myriad of other things.
Again, not what I expect from a Flagship phone.
After the problems I've experienced and talking to friends, this is one phone (I'm sorry to say) I will not recommend to people.
If I had more time, I would have posted a more in-depth review so apologies if it seems a bit rushed and sparse.
Phone Build 5/10
UI and settings 5/10

I concern you for your eyes!
Z2 IPS Live colour LED display reproduce natural colours which prevents eye problems in long term use
And, we are seldom use smartphone in sunlight and Z2 has enough colour depth for using under. sunlight*****
