"Battery: ... moreHopefully it means that they will be adding a battery "life-saver" feature. Li-ion batteries do not appreciate to be fully charged and discharged (ie they should never be "cycled", unlike ni-cd/mh batteries). This is why some laptops let you choose MAX CAPACITY or MAX LIFESPAN of the battery, in max lifespan it will never charge to rated capacity and never discharge to zero, thus increasing the number of recharge cycles by many times. A modern cellphone battery has lost 20% capacity already after 300 recharge cycles, by lowering the charge/discharge thresholds this can be increased to more than 6000 (six thousands) cycles, its really about time this option comes to mobiles and i hope this is it.
In the mean time what we can is to never fully dischharge your battery, ALWAYS charge before its empty, at 40% you should already charge. And never charge it full, lets say max 80%. For most people this is most easily achieved by having a portable power bank, as they cost less than an original spare and can extend one battery's lifetime to more than that of 20 spares! Spares are bad as they often encourage the damaging act of fully cycling batteries and are messy to charge.
People who insist on removable battery and carrying spares should also strive to swap them already when 40% left and never charge them full. In addition, spare batteries that are not being used often but carried with you "just in case" should be only 50-60% charged, to reduce the storage damage that occurs from lithium atoms permanently sticking to the surface of the anode where the electrolyte meets the anode.
Awesome phone, just really amazing i`d interese how many it will cost in markets :D still difference between this and G Pro 2 is a 20Mp camera and SCRACH AND WATER RESISTANT :) G Pro 2 is about $900-1000 on eBay, let`s see it`s price xD SGS5 already a failure without a price :D
I love the ZL/ZQ device size with its 5" screen and small overall size. I was hoping that the Z2 would be as compact as the ZL. Z1 Compact is about the same size as the ZL and has a much smaller screen. The perfect flagship phone should have a 5" screen, as it is pretty much the standard, with plenty of real state and yet pocketable when bezels are kept to a minimum, which is not the case with the Z2. Anything larger starts to be difficult to carry around. I hope the Z2 Compact, if ever launched, goes as real compact phone, not one with just a compact screen like the Z1 Compact.
worst sony, 27 Feb 2014grand2 has launched first and z2 has just announced and its look is just like grand2....to com... moreMaybe you should be answered in the way below Samsung fanboy LOL
Galaxy S5 looks like Nokia 1600
Samsung copied nokia again
1600 was released 7-8 years ago and S5 is just announced.
I think you actually saw grand2 and s5 so you were making foolish comments.

You will know who takes the bacon home if all these OEMs would agree to launch their flagships ALL AT THE SAME TIME! Just like what Sony and Samsung did on the Z2 and S5. Z2 wins overall and Sony has proved the people that they are worth recognizing. Samsung did well in the past years but in 2000-2009 Samsung was nothing in comparison to Sony and Nokia which were famous with their Cybershot and Walkman (Sony) and N-Series (Nokia) lines. Now, Sony is just taking back what they have used to own and I believe Nokia is regaining its strength as well with their lovely devices which are well built too! On par with Sony especially the beautiful Lumia 1520! I hope that these OEMs Sony, Samsung, HTC, LG, Nokia, Motorola/ Google and even Apple (even if it doesn't produce Android) would one day agree to show what they got in their next flagship phone and have them released in one occasion like MWC or CES. :)
sony fix the the price of z2 is approx.... 25000 otherwise is very expensive. so pls sony set lower price than z1 compact.
HTC M8 , 27 Feb 2014Put Z1 and Z2 in the arena you'll discover a very tiny difference the same as S3 and S4. What'... moreAnd an HTC fanboy came into the scene. Haha! I like HTC more than Samsung but I have to say that HTC has not been doing so well lately, why? Because HTC always lags behind. Look at the previous flagships last year, the Butterfly and Butterfly S only got differences in clockspeeds but they both used the same CPUs and only the batteries differ. With the Z, Z1 and Z2, there are more differences. From chipsets to screens, screen sizes, batteries and software/ OS. Also HTC is so fool to have put in 16 and 32 GB of non-expandable memory on the HTC One! The One is a very beautiful unit but HTC wasted everything on it and also HTC sells their phones like Apple does, they retail it expensively! Sony does more justice on the price coz Sony is more affordable and definitely advanced than HTC. That's a fact!
AnonD-96986, 27 Feb 2014so..what the hell 16gb internal memory.same like z1.i use z1 now and always running out space ... moreGrow up buddy !

AnonD-53326, 26 Feb 2014I will not replace my current z1 for z2 because I will lose too much euro.. But if I was buyin... moreso..what the hell 16gb internal memory.same like z1.i use z1 now and always running out space because all apps can't move to micro sd.
Bro, the screen has been improved vastly!
The TFT panel has been replaced by an IPS LCD panel!
How can your forget that??
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2014design is not important phone performance is important and z2 looks like z z1 you dont know an... moreAnd you as a blind Samsung fan doesn't know anything about what aesthetics is all about. Of course, Sony's Z2 won't lag behind S5 coz they are almost on par with the chipset, it's just that Samsung's clockspeed is higher at 2.5 GHz versus Sony's 2.3 GHz but that means the higher the clockspeed, the more juice will be used and just so you know Z2 has 3GB of RAM and S5 only got 2GB. The battery on the Z2 is 3200 MAh as opposed to S5's 2800 MAh! Sony has a better camera module obviously than Samsung so why are you going to tell me that performance is the most important thing when I can have everything on the Z2? Stay stuck with your pathetic S5 and I won't change my mind in getting Z2. Case closed!
Guys dont compare Z2 with grand2, bcoz grand2 is a mid range smartphone ..and another important thing is Z2 is the last flagship for the first half of 2014....so we expect an another flagship from sony after July 2014...
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2014lg g3 & iphone6 are the best smartphone of the year! Thank you for that, given the fact that both phones have not even been released! Troll much!!
i have the Xperia Z waiting for Xperia z3 to upgrade! it would be perfect minimal bezels snapdragon 810/805 if it coes with the SD 805 even for me it would be a huge upgrade Like i would upgrade from S4 pro to SD 805 1.5GHz-2.8GHz 3GB ram 25MP camera 5.2" with minimal bezels and latest android android 4.5(?)
[deleted post]Hahahaa.....he says
Z2 looks like grand 2?????.... Hahahahaha...oh god..Hahahaa...joke of the day... :D...he is really drunk...
Guys before you read these opinions, please note that trolls are rolling over the internet. One example is comparing a mid range Galaxy Grand 2 with this high end device.
Regarding the phone itself, we will not know yet before any reviewers got their hands on it. I only want to tell you that this phone is not essentially just a Z1 with a slightly bigger specs. However it's irrelevant whether you want to say the improvements from the Z1 to this phone is enough or not. It's just Not my problem. But The Improvements are as follows:
-0.2 Inch Bigger Screen
-0.3 mm thinner
-7 grams lighter
-Able to shoot 4K video
-Shoots 1080p at 60 frame per seconds
-Shoots High speed 120 Hz 720p video
-Comes with an updated version of Snapdragon 800 (Snapdragon 801)
-200 mAh more internal Battery
I Would like to point out that the biggest change here was the video shooting. Regarding the design, it is just personal preference, I prefer the Z2's more elegant design than the likes of S5. IMO from the whole MWC 2014 congress, I don't think any company outpaces the others in terms of innovations. But it's true that Samsung isn't innovating as it was in 2009-2011. Oh yes, The Z2 will never be overpriced as pricing leaks suggests that it will be priced similarly to the S5 and other upcoming flagships. We will see what the HTC All new One and LG G3 holds. Things does heat up now.
Have a good day, Cheers :).
