I brought it to US from Sweden but it doesn't work on my Verizon Wireless plan. I know Verizon is CDMA, but shouldn't that be an option on the phone?
Maryanne, 29 Jun 2014Stay away from this phone. It is not waterproof. Mine fell into about 3 inches of water and ... moreSimple piece of advice, stop trolling! It is not an attractive quality in a human being. I wish people would take responsibility for their own stupidity. There is enough evidence out there to verify the phone is water proof, not water resistance (the S5 is water resistant not water proof). It would not have been certified otherwise. I can't even belief I am having this stupid debate. Go exercise your fan boy or girl attitude on Samsung's blog instead of chatting rubbish and trolling on here.
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2014Yes, the flaps do open upon impact, just like when Android Authority for some drop tests. So... moreThe port cover/flap is metal same as the rest of the sides but the connecting material is plastic same as the connection between the phone and the S5's flap cover. From the Z through the Z2,never had any issues with the plastic connector breaking. The connector has to be plastic as metal is not flexible enough to fulfil the purpose!
Anyone has the problem with power adapter? my power adapter which is given in Sony box is not fitting in any charging point in my home :'(

Sony Xperia Z2 Drop Test!: http://youtu.be/5BGQtfDZNt4
Sony should improve on this. It's also flimsy, and not the attachment can easily be taken off if you're aren't careful about putting it in the pocket. The flap and sides are made of plastic, and not metal as some Anonymous person pretending to have the Z2 is claiming to be.
Stay away from this phone. It is not waterproof. Mine fell into about 3 inches of water and both the side flaps opened and water went in. No secondary seal to protect the phone. The phone is not durable to withstand the shock of a short drop. Sony will reject your warranty claim. Purchase the Samsung!!
sony is better no other brand compare with sony then built quality and sound quality and camera quality will compare with sony ... thank you

Maybe if u put it on the back pocket and then sit on your phone then you can crack it because you force the phone to bend. I have dropped my phone several times and no issue at all. Of course i have a case but i have dropped it on concrete from almost 2 meters high and phone works and looks as nothing happened. Don't fall for self cracking screen. Not for a normal and regular use.

Sony made the best display in Z2!
Live colour Led IPS display in Z2 has amazing viewing angle and saturated colour depth and clear contrast! There is no screen crack issues
You can also get front facing Sony original logo
Our Z2 pages are full of trollers: they used a great number of nick name and used various country codes
Of course, heat comes out from chipset, when we use smartphones
If we use smartphone for a long time, the external body of phone gets heat:)
It is because of normal heat convention
Moreover, Unlike all the other smartphones, Z2 has built_in cooling tech:)
Have a good choice,
Help! Dont troll me!, 28 Jun 2014Hi, i am thinking of buying the Z2, I was going to buy the G3 but that device was a big disapp... moreEvery smartphone produce heat because of BIG battery and number of cores
When you shoot normal 1080p video with your current phone for up to 30 minutes, you phone will get heat
Of course, it is normal,
All 4k shooting smartphones has heat issue for a long shoot because of big file size and more battery use
In Z2: don't forget to use super128g SD card
Have a nice day,
Wetch_Degs, 28 Jun 2014Am I the only one who has got rid of the overheating issues since the Sony updates?I am also a real Sony user:)
New Sony performance update has resolved heat issues in 4k
Notice: Z2 has cooling tech
Most trollers gave false opinions!
Z2 is the best smartphone in current market!
So, trollers EMPHASIZE normal heat convention because they cannot find and weakness or defects or problems
Of course, they exaggerated normal heat convention!
fazalkarim69433, 28 Jun 2014This phone is very much good in Design. Good specification and very good working. im using it ... moreYou should know,m8: s 5 and iPhone 5s also have some heating issues!
And they have no cooling tech
Big battery and new features make heat but it is Only a NORMAL condition*
Moreover, Z2 is the world's first built_in cooling tech smartphone
I also got overheating problem specially while using Skype,playing games and when using Internet tethering. And audio is very poor when using internal speakers..anybody have the same issues?
Help? My iphone cracked and I'm planning to change a new phone. I think that Sony Xperia Z2 has great specs but I still have two questions before buying it.
1. Overheating problem & Camera shutting down.
2. Screen cracking itself like Xperia Z & Z1.
I would like to know if the problems are solved. Would appreciate answers from Xperia Z2 users.
[deleted post]Not invented. But sony popularized it and brought it on top of the smartphone world's senses. And the the others started following/copying.
Finally I bought Z2 yesterday. I love this mobile very much except over heating issue during camera shooting.
Battery backup is really improved when compared with my prev Xperia v. I like all the features.
2 problems I encountered so far,
1. I can't hear the voice properly when am in call if am in crowded area and audibility is poor I can say.
2. Camera shooting is really irritating, I can't record 4K video for more than 15 seconds. What is this sony?? Its better to drop this feature if it is not going to workout well.
Sony added more and more effects in camera which is really good, but I can't even take 2 pics with special effect and camera is shutting saying that overheating.
Sony, please fix this 2nd issue soon and am not sure 1st issue is only in my handset [no God!! noo].....
Thank you all and waiting to hear good news from Sony for the heating issue...
