Still for waiting GSMArena review on this handset even though no real intention of purchasing one yet. Love to hear about USB cable & SIM-card cover as this seem to be Z2 weakness/issue. Tqvm.
Hello ppl, dun mind to share opinions?
If price is secondary, which one should i get? Z2 or T2 Ultra? Thx ppl! :)

What is your current phone?
In my Z2: texts are crystal clear and touch sense runs smoothly
I compared my Z2 with my friends' m8, iPhone 5s and s5 side by side in real life
My Z2 has top roll in contrast: being natural: colour deep: sharpness; viewing angle: flexible RGB range: brightness (30% to100%)
I think, over promise marketing may persuade you
Thanks for you!

Z2 IPS Live Colour LED trialumino... moreI agree to you. More colors make display look attractive. There's also a technical reason for that.
If you read my comment fully, more colors make the color output closer to Adobe RGB output and that's ideal for viewing images and videos. But not for text, browsing and casual usage. It looks good and pleasing to eyes.
I disagree on only one point. That z2 has the best display on the market. I agree it's among the best displays out there but simply calling it the best sounds fanboyism. I won't say my preference here but if I chose a phone solely on display( which no one does), it wouldn't be z2. I agree that z2 has a great display but not the best.
Have a nice day

Z2 IPS Live Colour LED trialuminos display with Xreality engine is the best one in the current smartphone market
shubham yadav, 11 May 2014I absolutely agree to you. The z2 has a great display . Just read my comment carefully. Just i... moreZ2 reproduce incredible colour!
Z2's IPS display with RGB backlit make more detail images with soften and crisp colour gamut
Oversaturated colours does not means more detail*
It means more bolder than natural colours
So ,Live with Sony and Enjoy "details make difference" without limitations*****
Babar, 11 May 2014What is colourgumtColor gamut is the number of colors displayed by the display compared to the sRGB colors.
If you want to know more read the following. Lets suppose our eyes can see 500 colors Just for example. Then that 500 colors come in the visible range. Now among those 500, some 250 colors are in Adobe RGB that is a standard defined and used for viewing photos. Those colors are ideal for photography and viewing general phenomenon in photos. Now among this 250, 100 colors are called sRGB. This is the most used colors and most displays can only produce these colours. So all the content for display is only made in these colours as most displays produce it. Now lets say a display produces pony 67 colors out if those 100. So its colour gamut is 67. If a display produces 120 colors then it's colour gamut is 120. Now more colour gamut is not considered very good as those lead to unnatural colors or not accurate colors as they also display colours that are not in sRGB and hence the display us inaccurate as the content is in sRGB but the display shows it out of sRGB.
That's what I was discussing. But people took me wrong and fired badly like fanboys. So the xperia z1 had around 100% colour gamut and Sony's latest love led tech adds more colors and hence the color gamut goes above 100% and display is not accurate or natural now.
Anyways, the display of z2 looks a good deal better than z1 Thanks to IPS panel.
Hope it helped.
Have a good day
xavier, 12 May 2014dude 5s is the better camera phone in the world followed by galaxy S5 ..Ha ha, T2 ultra is only a competitor of galaxy s5
Z2 has first rank DxO mark in camera benchmark
So, be honest!
I think I'll pass with the Z2, I just got the Z1 last november and I'm still enjoying it. I wish you luck guys for your Z2 purchases. ;)
shubham yadav, 11 May 2014I absolutely agree to you. The z2 has a great display . Just read my comment carefully. Just i... moreOK, firstly you must buy Z2 and you will see Z2's more accurate and more detail display
You can compare any android smartphone in the market !
If you go eye care center and check your eye problem
In real life, all z2 users are very happy with Z2 greatest and most accurate IPS display
Can't wait this Monster. already got pre order.
why GSMArena didn't put any review on it?
Currently i'm using Z1 compact, i loved it a lot, battery is very good, screen is sharpy and amazing, but camera is average (of course better than my iphone 5S). i thought Z2 have a much better camera.
How is the audio recording in this Phone. I am looking to get a new phone. The recording in my Huawei Ascend Mate is hopeless, its sounds like a radio.
My friend has a NOTE(1) and the recording is amazing. It was sounding like a professional live recording. this was a quiet outdoors.
I play the guitar and sometimes I get some tunes in my head and I want to record it and all my past phones were really bad recording.
In my room with the fan nothing is audible I even tried the Huawie earphones but its still bad and lot of static.
But the NOTE of my friends records very clearly and you can hardly hear the fan sound in my room.
If the sound recording is good I would try and go for it though its way above what I would pay for a phone.
Also a second question Anyone know any other phone that has good audio recording(should have 720p display at least 1GB ram Preferable 2, quad core and a battery life atleast that of the Z2 or more.)
I tried searching the net for the best phones for audio recording and nothing shows up. Looks like people are not bothered about audio recording.
But I feel it is an issue its the reason why NOTE has such good recording. Because its supposed to record dictations I guess
Ali, 11 May 2014There are some serious problem with X2. First there is an overheating issue. Second the camer... moreOnly when recording 4K videos over a very long period. The phone warns you and then shuts the camera down to cool off. Clever eh! I can't see the point of recording 4K videos, included as future proofing by Sony, when 99% of people do not have a 4K TV to play them back on! In general usage, the camera is stupendous and has no problems.
nishau, 11 May 2014One reason I go for Samsung other than Sony is Samsung has infrared and it can be used has rem... moreThe Sony Side View app means you can use the Z2 as a remote! Who the hell wants to use their phone as a remote when I already have a remote control? If that is the only reason to buy a phone, suggest you don't but go buy a universal remote control instead and save yourself a lot of money! Duh.....!!
