The phone is officially the best in the market.. defeating outdated S5 ... n Lg g2 ..
the screen improvement is huge.. the camera app got lot of additional features... stereo speakers ... wow what a phone ..
Phone of the year truely...
Now I want to see trolls. It's gonna be interesting. How to attack the obvious. How to complement other brands disfavoring this device. It's better in every respect. And all the differences can be measured. A splendid device. I'm still waiting for my Z Ultra 2 to come out. Meanwhile, congrats, Sony. Only 2 years, and you've taken the lead.
I hate this crazy trend of bigger is better. It was already uncomfortable to use 5inch phone and now this. I DONT WANT EXTRA 0.2INCH OF SCREEN STATE, I WANT PRACTICALITY NOT INCONVENIENCE. Galaxy S5 will be no different than this and Htc 1 is already huge with its front facing speaker.
Will battery life be any better? Z1 battery was not greta in web browsing. Realize bigger battery in Z2- will be interesting to see how that translates into real usage
Wolf, 24 Feb 2014Newsflash buddy. Mobile phone flashes, hell, inbuilt flashes, even in DSLR cameras are quite c... moreYou need to get one fact straight also, without LED flash we cannot take photos at all in dark. You only go out at day taking photos of flowers and trees? Some of us go out at night and spend time with friends and pretty girls, not even a Nokia 808 can take good photos without flash in that kind of places, long exposure is impossible to use, we need good LED flashes. This is one thing i liked about Galaxy S4, excellent flash, and S5 will have even better (not that it matters for me, i have many SIM cards from two continents and can never have a region locked phone, Galaxy S5 could be the most beautiful and best phone ever and i still could not buy it)
By the way, if the leaked live photos of Galaxy S5 are real then Z2 has a great selling point. I remember last year when S4 was about to be announced, lots of people were waiting for it and said like "i wait for Galaxy S4 instead of buying Xperia Z". Then S4 was announced and people were like "same design again?? Bye Samsung im buying Xperia Z".
Galaxy S5 is gonna be very disappointing i think, and then its good Sony is adding useless features to Z2 so it can catch some of those who will be disappointed with S5 and actually like that kind of stuff (like Samsung users often do). So that COULD save the Z2 sales but without 32GB expandable storage that may weigh too heavy against and people will forgive the S5 for being ugly with a very overused and outdated design. 32GB expandable storage is not a useless gimmick.
sidney, 24 Feb 2014why 5,2 inch why didn't they stay with the 5 inch it keeps getting bigger and bigger.It's 5.2,but it's said it's just a bit taller , but it's narrower and thinner.
Significant motion detector.
Live Colour LED
I think these details should be added in specification.
Xperiaman, 24 Feb 2014No Bravia Engine :(
No Dual LED :(
They said "SOMETHING EXTRAODINARY IS COMING"
... moreOnly the RAM has increased and the GPU is overclocked, and it has a bigger display that lots of people do not want. The least they should have done is give it 32GB of expandable storage, 16GB on a flagship is not acceptable anymore, they should have caught this shift in trends already, its like they do not want to sell more phones.
The other added "features" and stuff are cheap gimmicks, people who like that will buy Samsung anyway.
Probably, I will get this one as soon as possible!!! I can't wait much longer to get this phone!!!!
