pavlin, 22 Mar 2014Is it worth upgrading from note 3 to z2 or stick to my note for now ?The Note 3 is a great device too! It is worth keeping the Note 3 especially if you're on a tight budget nowadays when you have just bought a Note 3 and then wanna try the Z2. It won't be a problem if you have the money, it's your discretion but Z2 has the upper hand in hardware coz it has a superior camera, better screen based on PPI count, water and dust proof and updated CPU with Snapdragon 801. On the other hand, the Note 3's advantage over the Z2 is the S-Pen. Whichever you get will be more than okay for the standards of smartphones nowadays. :)
james, 22 Mar 2014Samsung galaxy s4 octacore had a qualcomm chipset but how you put quadcore rather than octacor... moreFirst of all it is very hard for the readers who speak in english to get your point. Learn to speak the language before you defend your Samsung and bash Sony. Haha! Well, let me just tell you that Samsung's octa core is literally made as 2 quad core CPUs! The 1.6GHz 4-core CPU is from an A15 architecture and the other 4-core CPU clocked at 1.2GHz is from an A7 architecture. These are two different sets of CPUs put in a single frame body of the Galaxy S4 and both CPUs don't work simultaneously but instead, for light tasks like browsing the web, the 1.2GHz CPU work but for graphic intensive games and other more complicated tasks the 1.6GHz take the job. The fake octacore could not stand against the Snapdragon 801 quadcore from Qualcomm. Only Mediatek has the real quadcore now running at 2GHz per core. Samsung is also making one but they haven't released it. Mediatek take note is the one that has the real power of a real octacore! The next generation of Snapdragon the 610 will have a powerful quad core CPU but there is an upcoming 615 with real octacore power based on a 64-bit ARM architecture and it was said to work simultaneously unlike the Exynos Octa on the GS4. So dream on dude! You can never make your Samsung better than Sony. Sony listens to their supporters and they become better everytime they release a flagship device while Samsung deteriorates whenever they release a flagship phone.
Important to Buyers
i had Samsung Note 2
updated to official 4.3 Os
there was something called as KNOX (Google it)
which doesn't allow to Root or downgrade Os
it was a Nightmare!! Plus number of Flashing Tickets ticked
if Knox is triggers 1's Rooting is unsuccessful
who cares of Octa core crap?
N yes SAMSUNG phone has
2 music app (Stock Music + Sammy Music player)
2 market app (play Store + sammy Store) :D :D
itz messy! Have you seen the setting option ??
NO More Samsung!!,..
Have yu Guys Heard of
EMMNc chip bug? Or sudden Dead Syndrome in Samsung S3,..Note 2 ?
That is real,..
I rather have iphone + Nexus 7 FHD tab
Or Sony Z2
Guys plz it s not all about he specs. As for me it s all about the experience with the unit. I used to have many ericsson and sony products finally i decided to move from xperia z to galaxy s4. Hoping it would be a great change for me. But trust me guys its horrible and now i regret every second with it. It lags, everyone says that sony lags but they are insane. Not even their low range flagships does lag even the little bit. I have had to restart the phone many many times due to this. Display is superb on s4 i agree but that s all about it. Messaging application and the keyboard is a mess. The music is the worst part. Um a huge music fan so um totally dissapointed with samsungs so called flagship.
Finally i m done with this and um planing to move to the z2 as soon as it hit the market. Trust me guys it s not all about the specs and gimmicks. It s what your heart wants
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2014xperia z2 is too costly and less features it dont have octa core and dual sim. Go for micromax... moreValuable things can't cheap price tag!
You go cheap plastic Huawwi & samsaung forum and you can get what you expect with cheap price
pavlin, 22 Mar 2014Is it worth upgrading from note 3 to z2 or stick to my note for now ?The unpleasant facts of note3 are : Taking charge twice a day for professional users: removable battery(* at least taking in&out battery make you more busy and it shows your phone is a low qua lity)
: plastic product which can wear out easily: spen is
a busy way to manage your phone #!
Here managing fingers &screen shot& voice memo& glove mood&noise cancelling&PENCIL input& smart
call handing in Z2 are more STEEAMLINED and more productivity and more useful in real life business
xperia z2 is too costly and less features it dont have octa core and dual sim. Go for micromax canvas kinght it have octa core,dual sim,16 megapixel camera too...
pavlin, 22 Mar 2014Is it worth upgrading from note 3 to z2 or stick to my note for now ?Z2 is a miracle!
The perfect ratio of chipset& speed& ram& core is
801: 2.3: 3:4 ! It is the best ratio and it gives you amazing performance and the experience of lively natural colour and 20.7 snapper!
doodz, 22 Mar 2014click this and you will see the new Core i7 Octa core by Intel
http://blog.gsmarena.com/in... moreYou know nothing about cores!
I7 does not means that all 8 cores run all times, when you use computer*
Octa core are being used by samsaung as gimmick
For example , iPhone 5s runs dual core with 64 bit chipset and 5s is two times faster than s4 Octa core
And iPhone 5s (dual core) also faster than note3 (Octa or quad core)
Of course, system on chip is an important one for speed
Z2 801 chipset with Live colour Led display is the smartest
Don't troll any more
Go home and Do your homework
Z2 has Quantum dot display Which is New Plus LED on Top
tri Lumx + Live Led
S5 doesn't have a chance !
AMOLED Are history my Friend
You Can compare Z1 Vs Z2 Display
So Much Difference !!
S5 is nothing but large version of s4
z2 comes with 3Gb Ram and s5 2Gb
thickness is Amazing
Iphone alternative in premium feel of Android
#1 Iphone 6
#2 Sony Z2
this device when comes to gaming i will give it 5star because of the 4core lol even beyter than you laptop, 3GB ram u can multi task like 50 apps running at the sametime
No doubt about sony xz2 is the best i ever see. Corning gorilla glass need only blady plastic bodys safty as like as samsung.
lg g serius are the best phones ...... and lg g2 is the best phone released ..... this is my opinion about phones
Is it worth upgrading from note 3 to z2 or stick to my note for now ?

james, 22 Mar 2014Samsung galaxy s4 octacore had a qualcomm chipset but how you put quadcore rather than octacor... moreSo what apps need a quad core let alone a 8 core cpu? IPhone seems to be doing fine with 2 cores still.
Doodz im not here to disgrade you or something I'm just going to share something.How about this.... You bought a phone for entertainment on the go if you want to buy a shitty phone and use it as a camera, email, games, Internet browsing then you will regret it because its a crap phone lag here and there. Then you suggested to buy camera instead if you want to put it in that way... So you will have to carry a camera for shooting. A laptop for emailing and Internet browsing, and tv and gaming console for games. How are you going to bring that stuffs outdoors, what will be your power souce outside see....sorry for my terrible English
james, 22 Mar 2014Samsung galaxy s4 octacore had a qualcomm chipset but how you put quadcore rather than octacor... moreWrong, while some models of the S4 had 8 cores, you could only use 4 of them at a time while the other 4 were shut off, all 8 cores were never in use at the same time no matter what you were doing with your phone... So no, the S4 is NOT better than the Z2, besides, the Octa core S4 used an older CPU (The 1.6 Ghz Exynos 5410, which uses the same ARM CPU used in the Snapdragon 600 running at 1.6 Ghz)compared to the quad core Snapdragon 801 found in the Z2 running at 2.3 Ghz... Having 8 cores doesn't automatically make it better than having 4 cores, considering most apps and games barely make use of 4 cores, let alone 8, having more CPU cores means absolutely nothing past a certain point (in this case, 4 cores), especially when the 2 CPUs are different models running at different speeds... Not to mention that there is much more to a smartphone than the CPU its using, that said, the Z2 easily blows the 8 core S4 away in all categories... Next time, maybe you should do some research so that you actually know what you're talking about
