Best phone of the year, was waiting for the s5 but that was a disappointment, only wish that it a bit smaller in size.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2014it still don't have usb 3 and not complete dust protection. best to have ip68 rating with usb... moredont mind the specs listed here, all newer Sony high end phones and even the year old Xperia Z supports 128GB microSD card, or "64GB and above" as was written in the update that brought it to the Z. I have a screenshot somewhere to prove it.
i love Sony ..
Sony Z2 is the answer of my doubt for poor screen and angle view.
now i have no reason to wait ... i will change my iphone 5s for this beautiful.
Stereo speakers, 3200 mAH battery, noise cancelling, better headphones & accessories, better waterproofing category, better product finish, Radio Hardware Tuner, etc. These are useful features.
Sony Z2 is better than Samsung Galaxy S5. No argument.
IP58 is less dust-proof but better in water resistant level compared to IP67 (the second digit relates to waterproofing level).
great specs. Make it affordable. The new benchmark.. great job Sony..
AnonD-205517, 26 Feb 2014I'm glad LG will deal Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia z2 present g3, this will not be able t... moreyour comment is like that of a serious(and a blind fanboy of another brand, for that matter) hater of a particular brand. grow up a bit, folk.
AnonD-184641, 25 Feb 2014yup...and the one on top covers notification led and earpiece too..I'm glad LG will deal Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia z2 present g3, this will not be able to copy it especially Samsung, which will wipe the floor with s5 and Z2, be careful what you say, do not underestimate the LG model g3 will be bomb phone, believe me
sony do the best , but i think 3200mah is not enough for - (3gb ram + quad core 2.3ghz + full hd resolution + 2160p video record)
Anish Bose, 25 Feb 2014Xperia Z2 has nothing special.
Z1 is more economical and in comparison it better.
I will not replace my current z1 for z2 because I will lose too much euro.. But if I was buying now I would definatly give 150$ more to get the Z2 instead of z1. Better and bigger screen in same size body (actually smaller in width and thinness where it most matters), front facing dual stereo speakers, 3gb ram, bigger battery are huge upgrades for me. Don't care much about 4k video and slighly better cpu but they are both welcome additions.
From the Z-> Z1 ->Z2 it's like sony actually listened and answered to all their costumers.
Wel this is a smart move by not switching to 2K resolution!
I mean..even d basic apps, presicly d games,..do not run such much smooth on 1080p coz they are not optimized for that.
So any1 who buys a phone with 2k resolution will be know for his lack of knowledge about them !
I'd seriously consider buying this phone against the new Samsung S5, IMO the new Samsung is overrated against the older S4, I'm sure Samsung could have done better, almost feels like they are following Apple now.Looking at what is chucked into this phone including the storage eating camera, I think this phone will go towards my next upgrade =D
Sony brings in another winner. Fast internals, beautiful display, great camera, sexy aluminum frame, waterproof design and battery free noise canceling earphones in box make Z2 a complete device in every respect.Wish sony brings in Z2 compact with these improvements and a mid sized 4.5-4.7 inch display up from tiny 4.3 on z1 compact considering the fact that on screen buttoms consume some space too.This makes it much better than cheapish looking S5.
