A reputable foreign language smartphone site published a shootout M8 vs S5 vs Z2, the Z2 won overall, S5 on last place, much because of annoying lag in the UI. M8 was pulled down a bit for no waterproofing and the low res camera. For Z2 they didnt note any disadvantages, but they did note that Z2 didnt visit the charger often during the test, it has the very superior battery life of the 3.
SONY phones are the best, just keep pushing it guys. They really have everything we want in a phone, such as Specs, Design etc. They say Samsung GS 5 is the best, a lot of people complain about the Stupid TouchWiz that it becomes laggy in the after first 3 months and it doesn't have that gorgeous look as Xperia Devices. That's a Flagship phone.
Spider7, 07 May 2014No Infrared: Using this feature in my galaxy S4. Can control my Air Condition and Tv. But at... moreOh you dont need 3GB, i guess that settles it, now noone will buy Z2. Thanks for pointing out this, im sure everyone will buy the S5 instead thanks to you, well done, your mom is proud of you.
These phones are getting as costly as vehicles. That day is not very far away when we will start asking for freebies, the same way we ask for vehicles (i.e., free service, free insurance, cushions, alloy wheels, under-rust coating etc etc).
We are waiting for real user review not infrared+remote control.3GB ram for raw multitasking and future upgrade.please samsung stay away.i have been reading about this phone from other trusted reviews.it is a great phone. worldwide release please!!
Spider7, 07 May 2014No Infrared: Using this feature in my galaxy S4. Can control my Air Condition and Tv. But at... moreIf you want to praise Samsung do it in samsung page. Don't compare samsung with SONY. I used I bought galaxy s5 2 weeks ago and I sold it after 2 days because of its durability and RAM. Extra 1 gig ram is very usefull specially if use multiple window. It's NOT a MARKETING STRATEGY that your whining about, SONY just made Z2 a much reliable device for any usage.. Marketing strategy your ass....
sam95, 08 May 2014too expensive! the wait continues :(well i guess there might be retails selling it cheaper without the smart bandd and cover
Not sure though
Sony on Thursday launched its flagship Xperia Z2 smartphone in the Indian market. The phone will go on sale beginning May 12 in the country with a price-tag of INR 49,990 and come bundled with a free Sony Smartband tracker.Sony is also bundling 6 free HD movies for download, one full-HD cricket game, and 3 months Bigflix subscription, apart from a Sony original case worth Rs. 2,990, for free
It matters little now how & when gsmarena is going to review this phone. There are many reviews from trusted sources already on the web and this is definitely the phone to get for 2014.
when sony will include dual led feature in their smartphones so that shots become more fantastic in low light also
dodo82, 07 May 2014Please hurry GsmArena with the tests for this phone !Seems they don't care :(
asdfrese, 06 May 2014xperia z2 is the best smartphone everApart from the extra 1 GB of RAM, the extra 200 mAh of battery capacity and the slight increase in screen size, what does this phone bring over the cheaper Z1. It's a good phone, all right, but not necessarily the best out there.
