my veiw, 25 Mar 2014Apple phones: 4s and 5s are best phones
Pros: Best built in Quality and gives some status. IO... moreUmm, you're having such good positive feedbacks here. what you said up there are really true from my experiences and friends'.
If i would to give mine, i'd like to tell that iPhone 5 or 5S are the best in terms of phone & apps performance, touch sensitivity, speed, battery life, re-charging time, high security (if not jailbreak), user-friendly, lots of free apps (of course, most apps are both purchasable and free), consistency of apps designs and UI, there are some more....oh, i really love the feature one Apple ID can be used to sync all phones...and the security of Find My iPhone!
Second recommendation is Sony Z1, and probably Z2 (haven't bought and used it yet!)
newest results in... including Xperia Z2 ;) :
interface not yet tested for xperia z2
XPERIA Z2 is the overall KING with 1225, over HTC with 1071 in second place.
Z2 is also third in gaming with 25 172, under HTC which is first with 26 328
Z2 is 7th in browsing while HTC is 8th...
S5 standings is not worth mentioning, except in browsing
so overall Z2 is BEST smartphone as of today!
kudos to Sony ;)

Anonymous, 25 Mar 2014sony all smartphones look are same z z1 z1 compact etc..there is no difference between samsung... moreThere's a saying called "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". This is why Sony and Apple designs hardly change over the years. So expect OmniBalance to be around for a while. Speaking of price it's totally justifiable for the z2 to be more expensive due to the materials used. I personally would never pay more than 400$ for a phone made of plastic. Speaking of plastic, galaxy phones are probably about as high quality as the sim card tray of a Z1. Any real Z1 owners would know just how bad that is.
Although this phone is super awesome ..everything is improved...the 16gb internal is kinda smallish considering present generation and flagship status..u will only get 11/12gb and u can only install apps on it...nowadays apps are so huge that i think it will fall short after some time...
doodz, 24 Mar 2014Lets talk about smartphone not the playstation processor. Can you tell me what company have a ... moresamsung is no 1 in terms of sales while sony comes at no 10...sony is weak in terms of sale...lets see about z2 but according to me samsung is best

If you fail to provide any credible source then you must stop spewing garbage on gsmarena. On the other hand if you think s5 design is better, then you belong in a mental hospital.
Taiwan is the first region to see the Sony Xperia Z2 go on sale. The handset will set you back NT$23,900 (£474, €565, $782) in Taiwan, with all three colours available (black, purple and white). This price includes the MDR-NC31EM noise cancelling headphones and DK36 magnetic charging dock. If you buy before the 30 April, Sony will also throw in a free leather case too. Let’s hope we start to see it hit other regions too in the very near future. (source : Xperiablog.net)

Altleast samsungs... moreomnibalance design was introduced in 2013....1 year old only...
samsung plastic crap design was used in galaxy S2 in 2011.....3 year old ugly design.....lolll
SONY put some buttons on your phones!
Look at Samsung, yes their phones are ugly and plastic but they have buttons.
The main upgrades of any smartphone, regardless of how good the camera is, are the cpu and gpu and let's face it, games are the main reason for more processing power and a few game look quite appalling with buttons on the screen and all off the would look better without them there.
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2014Xperia X10 (Z1's ancestor)
Xperia S (Z1's great grand father)
Xperia T... moreThats a strange way of viewing it. Being waterproof, how does ACRO S fit in here?
Xperia Z started off a whole new series, where Sony departed from their trademark design (curved back) and corrected serious mistakes (Xperia S with the missing card slot). Xperia Z was the original, Sonys first phone to step up to the rivals, followed by the uninspiring Z1, and now finally Xperia Z has a worthy successor in Z2, the second great flagship.
Z1 Compact being some kind of newphew, i admit its good but hope the Z2 Compact improves on some of the less than stellar aspects about Z1C (plastic back and low ppi display for a flagship)
