heh they are right the phone overheats after about 3-4 min shooting 4k. However it doesnt crash it stops recording and pops up a message saying it is too hot...
however i normally only take short clips anyway, so i dont see it as a huge problem, but could be a pain if you want to record something long, most people dont hand hold a phone video more then a minutue or 2 if you really think about it
i am still pretty happy with mine, battery life is great, at the end of the day i am always always over 50%
also noise cancelling headset really works and when using it in the car on a conference call for example the call quality is amazing

Now of course Z2 is considerably smaller and slimmer than that, not to mention that Xperias dont have that cheap sticky feel, but i had enough, will not consider other Android phones than Z2 Compact this year, if BlackBerry doesnt make a fairly compact high end full touch phone that is.
Its a bad sign though that LG and ZTE already have 4.7 inch "mini" phones, maybe Z3 Compact will be 4.8 inch. iPhone makes more and more sense, i am not going back to having a giant clown phone like Note 2. No offense to those who work as clowns, i used to know a clown myself. Its just that Note 2 and 3 matches their shoes so well.
Xperia Z2 is currently the best phone on market. Just check DxOMark Camera Benchmark and Rightware Benchmark results you will know its best in camera and all the overall specs.
Jin Hsu, 27 Mar 2014Skip Xperia Z2 for Xperia Z3 for 6 month later :-)Apparently the Z3 has a 5,5 inch screen.
The Z2 is already reasonably big (5,2 inch). For sure the specs will be better. I understood more MP (23 or 27?)I'm going to buy the Z2.

On the removable battery part, i think the reason for this is water tightness and build quality. I guess this is what makes the difference between a water proof phone (xperia z series) and a water resistant one(S5 and s4 activ).

It is only a marketing of samsaung fan!
It is impossible in real life!
And it is NOT a EXPERT review!
In news, they indicate some users and it is uncertain condition
The expert deep reviews of z2 are:
Z2 has the highest DxO mark rank passing over Nokia pure view(40.1mega pixel) and iPhone5s and HTC m8 and all galaxy samsaung phone
Z2 (2.3 gHZ)is the fastest smartphone compared to m8, iPhone 5s(64_bits), galaxy nite 3& s4& evens5 (2.5gHZ)
IPS live colour Led display and Xreality engine are the Best colour creators

That is because the heat is contained inside the ugly plastic back cover. Try opening it after recording, you'll find out. Your note 3 us just waiting to explode.
