I am glad that Sony finally joins the high end smartphone market and beats the flag bearer Samsung Galaxy. Well done! Well done!.
Samsung has alinated us who were their fans by removing the Radio Tuner Hardware from their Galaxy series.
Now, I am going to Sony or LG, as my end of contract approaches.
it still don't have usb 3 and not complete dust protection. best to have ip68 rating with usb 3, 128GB micro SD support
wow, this in my opinion is better than the galaxy S5, the design is not boring like the S5 either. the only thing this one lack is the finger print sensor but u get 3GB RAM in return. good job sony \o/
This is awesome! The specs are definitely mind-blowing! I am having a Xperia Z now and I can't wait to get my hands on this upcoming power gadget Z2! It's time for a significant upgrade of my mobile phone in 2014. With such a powerful core chip, stunning screen resolution and much lasting battery life, I'm sure I will fall in love with Z2!
I bet all Z1 users feel used and betrayed... ja, ja... imagine... the Z1 came out in sep. 2013 and 5 months later sony decides to go for an "upgrade"... although truth be told, differences are minimal... And what's up with those HUGE bezels... man... Also, I´d rather go with gorilla glass 3 than "Shatter proof and scratch-resistant glass"... that is bs!
AnonD-184641, 25 Feb 2014Z2 is powerd by snapdragon 801..better than that on the S5 (s800)..it handles gpu better than ... moreGet your facts straight... the S5 is also running 801 at 2.5ghz... duh!!!
Tom, 26 Feb 2014Nice specs, but pity it looks like flated brick and glassy design magnet for fingerprints ... ... moreok..go for that plastic toy like device with funny icons all over that ui....S4 black edition and note 3 was a loooot better than S5
Awesome work sony.. This phone will last for sure.. It's time to replace my xperia z
problem screen, 25 Feb 2014BIG PROBLEM is screen. Why Sony represent dragontrail ANTI SCRATCH glass, when they put stupid... moreso that protective scratch resistant sheet is a deal breaker for you ? lol...(me too hate that thing...but it wasn't a deciding factor)
well,then there is a good news for you...those 'useless' protectors are not there on Z2... :) (watch erica griffin's hands on video on youtube)
Nice specs, but pity it looks like flated brick and glassy design magnet for fingerprints ... think will go for SGS5
AnonD-220058, 25 Feb 2014Well actually S5 has a more powerful chipset than the one currently on the z2 due to higher cl... moreZ2 is powerd by snapdragon 801..better than that on the S5 (s800)..it handles gpu better than s800...and we can overclock it by ourselfs...so no complaints
AnonD-105795, 25 Feb 2014Does this phone has 2 front stereo speakers ? yup...and the one on top covers notification led and earpiece too..
Anish Bose, 25 Feb 2014Xperia Z2 has nothing special. Z1 is more economical and in comparison it better. hw is it ? i didnt get you...
I now seriously dont know wat to complain about this in phone.. The best just got better. I really wish I can find some issues in this device.. but i am unable to now..
The only thing i can say... This is awsum!!!! I am an S4 user... I am getting a Z2 now for sure. I hate to say.. but i loved this beautiful thing :) I wish Sony launch this soon on ATT in US
Ips 5.2 inches-snapdragon 801-3gb ram-20.7megapixels with 4k video recording-build in high quality etc......
The best company is SONY
The specs are very close to Galaxy Note 3 (RAM, CPU, battery) which I use as a business phone (and totally love it).
My private phone is SGS3, and I'm amost sure I will go for Xperia Z2 instead of SGS5 later this year.
AnonD-237853, 25 Feb 2014The S5 and the Z2 both has the same processor, and still the Z2 beats the S5, shame on Samsung... moreYet I can not wait lg g3 coming in May this year. who will have 2k HD display, Snapdragon 805, with 2,7 ghz quad core cpu, Adreno 420, 16 mps ois camera, 3GB of RAM, FM radio and much more,. LG has always had innovation in technology, how those mighty rewards and recognition to many fairs. s5 disappointment and Samsung as a company crazy is the one who buys this joke of a phone, just wasting money, when only a few months a better phone
BIG PROBLEM is screen. Why Sony represent dragontrail ANTI SCRATCH glass, when they put stupid useless anti shatter screen protector on it. At least they should put Sony logo on phone, not on useless screen protector. Who cares if glass will be at same place if I break it.
I have xperia Z, and z1, and I will not buy any of xperia model if they dont change that stupid thing.
I had also xperia T and earlier models, and u could simply take off that easly scratching protector and logo is still on phone, and screen remain anti scratch.
On first Xperia Z , i was suprised when I scratch screen so easy in first few days, and when I took of protector I had problem with warranty. They told me Sony want it to be on screen. Where is then anti scratch option?? Such a waste of beautifull phone if you must put it in cases and use it over 2-3 protectors.
And when I ask them to place new protecor, I got answer that must buy whole lcd with leds hahaha.
I had also Iphone 4, normal glass phone and not single scratch after almost 2years of heavy usage, but this screen shatter procetor is also scratch magnet useless thing.
Very disapointed from Sony. Most of my friends with Z's also complain about terrible scratches. So please next time put logo on phone so we can use it without useless scratch magnet protector and enjoy dragon trail or backside gorilla glass screen.
Its not option to put another screen protector on already instaled screen protector every few months, because its silly. Dont want to use phone over 2 protectors for sure!!
To bad, because I very like the look and feel of glass but not feel of protectors.
One more thing, Z2 is almost the same with Z1, u realy should make better cameras. Bigest lens, and most pixels, and camera samples are not so better or even worse then competition. Or put xenon flash, that would be best advance from competition.
And could put some bigger screen then 5.2 when borders are huge. Look at note 3, 5.8 is so huge difference.
Xperia with that dimensions could put 5,4-5,5''
I realy hope to see soon Sony represent again really anti scratch screen without useless protectors and I'm back for sure.
