AnonD-4989, 09 May 2014http://www.trustedreviews.com/opinions/waterproof-phones-ip-ratings-explainedThanks for the info but I already knew it. As it is evident from my comment. S5 is more dust proof and z2 is more water resistant.
Anonymous, 09 May 2014 you have used all S5 M8 and know Z2 im thinking how many smartphone you buy per year???dont lieSee my response was deleted! The answer is pretty much every top end phone bar the iPhone plus a Vodafone upgrade. Self indulgent and a waste of money but that is my obsession and only vice. Don't judge me by your circumstances and it is rude to call someone a liar when you do not know their circumstances. If I like it, I pretty much buy it and sometimes sell the whole lot to get new phone/s! Suck it up!
This phone is more perfect if the captive buttons on the bezel rather than on the display. There is so much space on the bottom of the phone to place the captive buttons.

Removable cover& battery are out_ date technology and it shows Samsung emphasize Quantity and ignores Quality
If you open back cover dust has entered s5
So s5's dust& water resistance is very funny

Immersion at depth of at least 1 m measured at bottom of device, and at least 15 cm measured at top of device
8 Immersion beyond 1m The equipment is suitable for continuous immersion in water under conditions which shall be specified by the manufacturer. Normally, this will mean that the equipment is hermetically sealed. It can also mean that water can enter, but only in non-harmful ways. Test duration: continuous immersion in water
Depth specified by manufacturer, generally up to 3 m

And second is for water resistant. 5 us fir water jets I think 7 is for resistant upto 1 m for 30 min and 8 is for resistance upto 1.5 m for 30 min.
Do z2 us dust resistant and water jet resistant and more water resistant upto 1.5 m. Nothing is water proof.
S5 is completely dust proof and water resistant upto 1 m.
Have a nice day
Hi all techies and knowledgeable forum nerds.
* How is Z2 better than z1?
* I am able to get one Z1 @ Euro 290 (Used), is it good?
* How is ~441 ppi pixel density for Z1 not better than a slightly bigger screen of Z2 but with 424 ppi Pixel density? From a laymans view Z1 will have better display?
* Why to pay extra when camera is the same? Any other mobile with a better camera specs??
Honest comparison with i phone pls.

I currently have the Z1 and am in love with it. Its the best phone ive ever had. I really expect the Z2 to be a great success. Cant wait to upgrade to it once its out here.

However a private company is planning to offer tickets for only $750 million, big discount but still great since you got it for free when you bought your Z2.
Sony gonna be bankrupt very fast if they make that offer by the way...
