Great phone, original Android that came with this phone performed the best I feel for my specific individual circumstances.
Unfortunately, Still haven't manage to find much love for Android Marshmallow after all these years. Reduced WIFI stability, reduced ability to obtain / keep GPS lock while offline (in the wilderness, away from reception). Even after numerous full resets.
Fully agreed with Jamie. A little shy of three years now, not a scratch on it. Still keeps up just fine with anything and everything. No odd glitches, screen burn, or anything else. The battery isn't quite what it used to be, but that seems mostly due to the lack of Sony's stamina mode. The battery was amazing with it and I had it on all the time, but after it got removed when marshmallow (I think it was marshmallow) was released the battery life took a significant hit. That said I still get a full day comfortably. I'm a fairly heavy user (about 2.5 hours a day of real usage) both games, and web browsing. Had a 6 hour day recently of browsing, Pokemon go, maps, ect. Usually end my day with about 30% remaining.
To summarize, amazing phone, can't recommend enough. Although I doubt anyone will be getting one now as it is pretty old in phone years now, my next phone will definitely be a Sony, and I highly recommend.
P.S. I work in a phone store and really wish Sony would have their phones available to us again, even if its only if we ask for them, and not regular stock. I always have to recommend Samsung (there on par, just different aspects to be fair) since nobody can carry Sony and we all work on commission, so I can't say "ya just go buy one from Sony's website and bring it in to get it activated" since I'd be actively reducing my own income.
Mine is working fine, but without vibration. Vibration does not work. But i don't care about vibration. Never used anyway. Phone is very very good. I don't need a new one ofter 2.5y.
Have used my Z2 for the last 3 years. Still in mint condition, battery still lasts 2 days - 3 at a stretch. Brilliant phone and I still don't have any need to replace it for the foreseeable future.
is it a fragile phone ? and does its battery drain fast ? thanks.
I used xperia z2 for almost 2 years. a few months ahead i experienced ghost touch, it kept clicking the screen without us tapping the screen, the phone usually gets overheat with the screen problem.. so i turned it off, after a few hours, i turned it on, and it worked normally.. these happened several times, about 3 times a week i guess. Until one day, the phone got the other touchscreen problem (i could not tap on several area on the screen, and it was permanent) and it annoyed me a lot. So i bought another phone. Until now, i am still using sony, but it did not function as it should. I must say i am quite disappointed with sony

Lol dude, 3GB RAM is the norm for 2014 smartphones, what do u expect? Why not get a new 2017 smartphone? There are more options now, with some having 8GB RAM satisfy more on daily usage, if u think 4GB RAM is too less when it is not, and also better Water-Proof rating if u are the type who always puts the smartphone in water
The Z2 Xperia is a reasonable phone, but Sony's support is terrible. They usually don't respond or provide useless responses. That aside the PRO's of the phone are: (1) reasonable processors, (2) good camera with 4K video (but...see cons), (3) fairly water-proof...(but...see cons). CON's: (1) camera overheats when filming in 4K, (2) Gorilla-glass back breaks frequently, poorly made and then water-proofing gone, (3) Memory is limited to 3GB. Beware of Swiss provider Swisscom, charged me hundreds of Francs (1 CHF = 1 USD) for repairing phone even under guarantee. Apologized but no refund. Swisscom is poor provider.

Every smartphone will become outdated after a few years without any software updates. Get the XPERIA XA1. Current mid-end flagships are slowly getting better than previous generation high-end flagships.
I used Sony Xperia Z1 first. And I buy second hand Sony Xperia Z2. Well it's pretty good but the speaker it's too low and much treble. But it's better than Sony Xperia Z1. Which is more terrible. The screen is better too. I love Sony Xperia Z2 screen. Compare to other phone Sony Xperia Z2 is reddish screen. I compared Sony Xperia Z2 with my friend's IPhone 6s. Nice phone. But not worth in 2017. No update and laggy.
