I have used HTC one M8, Samsung Galaxy S5 and am using Xperia Z2 right now.
I have used all these devices almost similarly for my daily use.
If I start my day in morning 7am with 100% battery charge
Samsung Galaxy S5 battery is worst of the lot, I had to recharge battery every evening around 7PM
HTC one M8 would be around 15% before @11PM
Sony Xperia Z2 was 45% @ 11PM
Looks wise people would have their own likings.
All three phones have very good camera with some advantages and disadvantages.
Xperia Z2 and Samsung has added advantage of being water proof, that helps you can be a bit less carful with your phone while working, having dinner or partying with water bottles and glass on table.
HTC One M8 is best when it comes to presenting helpful info like news and RSS feeds in blink feed.
Hope this helps.
Hy guys how much time Z2 is taking to fully charge from 5% to 100%
Iels2003, 18 May 2014I received Z2 on fry idea and I hame M8 for 3/4 weeks and this is my opinion.
Sony - better ... moreZ2 has IPS display, Z1 not. I am not even going into other stuffs, that single thing is worth something like 25%.
So just because you hate Sony don't try to falsify the facts.
I received Z2 on fry idea and I hame M8 for 3/4 weeks and this is my opinion.
Sony - better aku live 20/30%
Sony - camera in day lite is okey but in the dark is nothing special
HTC miles better loudspeaker
HTC much better flash lite
HTC beter resolution
Sorry if I disappoint someone with my opinion and my English , but I think that Z2 just little , max 10% different from Z1 and this is definetle not a top model.
Waiting for new LG and!!! ONE PLUS ONE
I wanna buy the xperia z1, xperia z2 or htcc m8 but i am not sure if:
1- which device have better battery life.
2- which device support 4G in INDIA.
3- Is Camera of z1 same as z2 except some software tweaks. Hardware of camera seems same in both z1 and z2.
4- HTC M8 seems better than Z1. But is it better than Z2 in terms of performance and camera?
5- In INDIA Z2 is costlier than Z1 by 10k. Z2 costs 50K while Z1 costs 40K here in INDIA. Does z2 really worth 10K incremented cost?
i love this phone so much it does everything i want and is really great but ive had to take it back and get a new one because the massaging was messed up and the mic was bad people couldn't hear me and this one has the same problem :( im really disappointed
dissapointed, 18 May 2014I just bought this phone and after using for 3 days, oh boy i'm really dissapointed..it keeps ... moreHOPE SOMEBODY BELIEVE on u .majority out there own this z2. PA gave it 9.2 better than SAmesung and Htc
This is the best phone out there Samsung uses cheap material HTC has rubbish camera all round this phone gives a good experience it's been voted over 8.5 on every review
Tried the Z2 at 2 different shops, the photos dont appear to be too good for the price. Nor does it sound good despitehaving 2 front speakers. Does this even haveoptical image stabilisation? I am a Sony fan, and was waiting for this z2 to be released. Am not too keen to get it; would prefer the Nokia 1520 over this for photos. Guys try Z2 for yourself before buying the Z2. Not worth the price.
I just bought this phone and after using for 3 days, oh boy i'm really dissapointed..it keeps restarting for unknown reasons and the phone itself has some overheat problems..and i'm not meeting up the promised battery life..for just about 4 hours with 1 hr on screen time, with minimal usage, surfing the net and other stuff it already consumed 30% of the battery..:(, why sony..why??..:'(
sony it really MAKES BELIVE TO THE PEOPLE bcoz its camera quality is unbeliveable..........it is better than galaxy s5 and it work like bullet and nice for making personality between the people..........................prem kant and sandeep
ye i have and i am joining it
some users have problems with 4k include me most of users call it issue but it its a protection app who stop camera when it overheat and it seams it comes on 44C
it mean a hot room make difference
i have install a low class SD (sony says need a class 10)
and i can rec about 3-5min without warning (but cant rec more only 2gb SD) hope this is a software issue not a hardware
low light camera isnt as good as i aspect but on sun is the best i have seen (not vs nokia lumia )
if u wanna better camera go buy nikon or canon
before i buy z2 i was ready for htc m8 (s5 never mind)
after some reviews i have decide to buy z2
i can stay here and tell you lot of bullish for z2 and s5 but better way is got to shop and touch them in your hand
my friend have s5 but he says z2 is more better and more faster then s5
i can confirm you there are no lags on z2
