I don’t know why so much debate about which phone is the best. Sony Z2 may be the best but if there is no supply and takes months to meet demand, it’s useless. The phone is taking ridiculously long to release, especially in the US. By the time it reaches the demand, the LG G3, Note 4 and next Sony flagship (Z3?) will be announced or released. Why cough up so much money ($700+) when it will be dethroned in a matter of months?
Users in Singapore has reported overheating when shooting 4K videos and water ingress through a gap in the front panel.

Z2 has the HIGHEST DxOmark rank in all smartphones such as Nokia's pure view(40.1 mega pixel), z1, iPhone 5s (8 mega pixel), HTC m8( 4 ultra pixel), galaxy note3& s5 & s4 ( 16& 13 mega pixel)
Z2 is also the FASTEST smartone ,competing samsaung S5, HTC m8 ,iPhone 5s and galaxy note3!
Noise cancelling tec and stereo speakers with several sound engines and Live Colour LED are the details which can only get in Sony Xperia Z2!
You can get real 4k shooting quality with Sony 4k TV and MHL 3
You can enjoy new UI and NFC experience
3 g ram for your business
That's why Z2 is the king of smartphones*****
When is it launching in India?sony atleast should give a date...
So much for the build quality?
iboy, 08 Apr 2014Yes, S5's fingerprint scanner is totally rubbish compare to one on iphone 5s. Samsung is the champion of half-baked features. Amazing how much defective software and useless features Samsung can squeeze into a phone.
I own XZ & S4 Active. And now, I'm looking for another phone and the options are S5 or Z2. But having Xperia & Galaxy together make me be able to compare what both manufacturers are offering from their flagship.
I found my XZ lacks of features, even the basic ones like Call Block & DND. And Xperia still relying 3rd party app to send files via WiFi direct, and the receiver must have and open the same app. That's troublesome.
On Galaxy I can easily send files to other Galaxy smartphones without having the receiver to require any app downloaded, it just works like Bluetooth.
And last but not least, takng picture is very slow between each snaps. S4 Active is faster but my iPhone 5 even faster, but that's iOS. I prefer Android as my phone and my iPhone 5 now acts as a iPod to me as I am no longer using it as a phone.
S5 or Z2? Dillemma. Z2 with its 3GB RAM and beefy battery is so tempting.
AnonD-250913, 08 Apr 2014probably because in asia you can walk into a store and buy one, however it is not available st... moreZ2 on Hong Kong got delayed till June 24, and already goes pre-order in Singapore and Malaysia, and already goes on sale in Taiwan and S5 already goes on pre-order in Indonesia.
the new sony xperia z2 will become one of hottest smartphone in the world i bet u.
probably because in asia you can walk into a store and buy one, however it is not available state side yet?
i also dont understand why there is no reviews yet, z2 has better availability in asia then s5 from what i can see in hong kong and taiwan, both still not available in china.
