A new hands-on review from australia:
I just quote the final verdict: "Whereas Samsung’s flagship does many things well, the Xperia Z2 does all things better."
My order will be placed tomorrow, as the phone is finally available in Switzerland :)

goldwinprince, 13 May 2014xperia z2 supports 128gb memory card or 64gb memory cardBoth:-)
I just got it, after two months of waiting.and analaysing...upgrading from galaxy S3.
Was thinking of IP 5s, but all my friends with IP walk through the day with the charger or extended battery, so thanks no (though i work with ipad and macbook air).
The ones that remains.
S5.... Looks cheap, but holds nice in hand, works good...as any galaxy ...for a while. Was expecting something more fron next samsung flagship. UI annoing.
HTC one m8... Looks very nice, sounds great, UI nice, not very good photo (to be polite) so not an option for me, as i do a lot of photo every day as part of my work and i dont like to carry my DSLR all the time.
Decided for Z2., only from reviews and plaing with a Z1.First thoughts.
Works perfect, no lag, no bloatware, ergonomic and fluid UI. Nice display, good viewing angles, good touch response.
Premium feel in the hand, nice design. Glass catching prints, but not so awful as decribed by others. Sound very good, not so loud as M8 but still....U can listen music with beats.
A little bit to large, bezel a bit to large (could have host the home button....:D), a little cumbersome to use...hope that I will get used to it. Probably i will buy some cover, so i will hide the design :))) but almost all the IP users do the same :D
Camera good, probablly not the best, but among the best., very fast. Two pics to dark on point and shoot. No heating problems with 4k 5 minutes, recording on sd class 1, probably you wont shoot 4k for one hour. Good battery so far.
After one day?
Z2 compact, same specifications would be perfect!!
btw ... All of these cost a lot...but with age the price and size of toys increseas. I am not a fan of any brand.
Hope that this will help.
Good news! Sony authorised retailers in Bangalore started selling this beast. 'Xperia Z2' is now for sale. Good luck for purchasers.
