[deleted post]IPS displays are "better" than AMOLED because of colour accuracy, and colour accuracy matters when you will do some photography related works, cause that time you will need pure and exact colours. Other than that, for watching movies and playing games IPS is simply crap. Horrible contrast ratio is a disgrace. So as far as mobile display goes and it's usage pattern, AMOLED will win all day over IPS. Also S5's display with Cinema mode is quite compatible with Z2's IPS display.
And who said to you that iPhone's display are the best? It is IPS but over saturated, that's why people call it "great", if you want natural and accurate colours the Nexus 5's and hTC M7 / M8's screens are the most accurate ones, which people don't like because it's too accurate, hence colours look washed out and dull.

Samsung S5 was also launched for 49000, but prices dropped so badly....
I just got the phone 4 days back and oh my god!this one is a marvel!fast as lighting, clear as a crystal and very very beautiful. Also to tell you people who are saying that the camera crashes, it doesn't
doesn't. Not even once did I face a crash problem in any app even after extensive usage. It does heat up a bit,but definitely nothing to make an issue of. It heats,does not overheat. To be frank, mu HTC ONE V would heat up more than this. I'm in love with this phone. For those confused about which flagship to put in your pocket, Sony Xperia Z2 is certainly the hands down winner here guys! Totally satisfied!

But, you wait for a few minutes to dry and you can happily use for camera performance
In underwater use, you can seal the cover plates carefully,
You say you bough Z2 four days ago!
So you can change the new Z2, ha ha
Only T2 camera is the competitor of note3's camera
Z2 is ranked a premium level
In conclusion, you are a Samsung trollers
Moreover, you did not have Z2:)
An Extremely poor phone by Sony. Poor brightness of screen when in auto mode, compelling one to use maximum brightness, resulting in battery drain. Extremely Poor camera and more poorer flash. the phone even fails on sound quality. highly regret this purchase.
fragy, 15 Jun 2014should i buy this xperia z2 or wait for xperia z3...? i'm confused !you should wait.. i also am waiting for that.. i heard its releasing in august.. true???
Anonymous, 15 Jun 2014Plz help which is more better Xperia z2 or HTC one m8 or iPhone 5sOviously sony xperia z2. Its the world most attractive and best phone , i have ever seen.
I would like to share with you that Sony Xperia Z2 is not a good phone in terms of
(1) Camera Panoramic pictures compare to Note 3 it is really very poor and not user friendly camera while taking panoramic pictures.
(2) It turns off your camera for cooling down after taking three to five pictures with panoramic mode.
(3) they says it is waterproof but three days back i bought one x2 and went for swimming yesterday it started miss behaving after taking few videos and snaps under water. (note: it was inside the pool less then 5 minutes with probably 6 intervals)
guys i am sharing this with you with just 4 days of sony xperia z2 experience.
i bought it with a thought that its battery is good, camera instant picures taking facility
fragy, 15 Jun 2014should i buy this xperia z2 or wait for xperia z3...?
i'm confused !You should buy Z2:
Z3 may come snapdragon 805 BUT it is only 32_bit chipset!
After you have bought Z2 , you updated Z4( (808 64-bit 808 chipset) and Z4 may be QHD(2k resolution)
Moreover, Z2 and Z4 has one year difference .
Hey Sony World lovers! Just learned a little trick today. The loudness of the phone is awesome you just have to go into setting> un-tick clear Audio>go into sound enhancements, adjust your equaliser and turn on xLoud. You also have S-Force Front Surround! Awesome sound quality through my headphones and have had to reduce the volume! Try it and enjoy.
Im not a a sony fan , i own the htc m8 (no regrets ) really love the phone and the camera that has really improved .
Though i admire sony's work on the z2 , im very impressed with the specs sheet .
Good job sony , RESPECT :D
S5 amoled display has more accurate colour than your z2 screen.
I'm planning to get Sony Xperia Z2. I'm a Sony lover and am currently using Xperia series where am facing battery issue :( [my mobile is dying without charge within 2 hours if I connected to data]
I dono the battery backup in Z2 and apart from that am very much satisfied with Z2 features. Can anyone who is using Z2 please share your feedback on this? It would be great for me before ordering Z2.
Also, I want to know troubleshoot when the device gets hanged since in Z1 also we don't have an option to remove battery from the mobile when it is completely hanged and we have to wait till the battery shuts down.
Is there any way to ease this one?
I'm Xperia Z user and few days ago make a wish to change my Z to Z2, after read review from GSM Arena,i'm not going to change it,because Z2 camera results very bad even compared with S5 (20 MP compared to 16 MP),,,
I will waiting the next from Sony because i'm Sony Lovers and i hope Sony make a Best Camera Phone result not best High Resolution but with the bad result,,,sorry to say I WILL NOT BUY Z2
