I just hate how hard it is to find the out which version is the US version, in press releases I'm sure they don't note which model is International and US, but I wish the added it because it would be easier to find in a search rather than find the band that suits the US LTE. Yes I am looking at the older version of the Xperia Z line, for price point, but there's so many versions floating around hard to search for the right one.

AnonD-509001, 02 Mar 2016Hello guys .. I used to work for sony mobile many years ago and i can tell you Z2 is one of th... moreI have both Z2 (social media, taking pics, music) and Z ultra (gaming and watching movies).. Both device can make it in 1 day normal usage.. Battery life is superb.. Fast UI.. And most of all, cheap (if you're planning to buy now..) also i bought xb950bt headset for best experience on gaming, videos and music..
AnonD-42316, 03 Mar 2016For the people confused between Z2 and Z3.
I was in the same dilemma 6 months back, and there... more-THANKS A LOT my Friend which one you have Z3 or Z2
-Well I also want to choose Z2 over Z3 But I read that Z2 has temperature issue,and Display is less brighter than Z3 is holding me back, and I also heard that this issue has not rectified in Z3 it also heats up but slightly less than that of Z2.
-I sold my HTC SENSATION XE four years back due to same issue of heating during 1080p recording.I just ignore LG G3 due to same problem.
-I had Xperia SP in past and it was a legendary device in its class but unfortunately it was stolen.It did heat up but I didn't feel any heat while using camera and using it for 1080p recordings.I just felt heat when I flash Roms on it.and I know it is very heavy task and while flashing the rom I just put it into a freezer...:)
-If the camera heats and you can't use it for long time then what will be the benefit of 20MP CAMERA with 4k @30 fps recording and1080p @ 60fps & 30fps or 720p @ 120fps recording .If you miss your moments due to force close of caused by heating.Kindly anyone explain me about heating in detail.
-Actually I think Due water resistance there is poor ventilation for heating . I would say it is like a PRESSURE COOKER and on the other hand Glass is not good conductor of heat.I appreciate SONY that now they start using metal back in their new X series, that will be great for heat dissipation and more durable than glass.
- I know none of phone is perfect.but there are somethings which I can't live with like heating while normal task,performance issues,camera issues,built quality issues e.t.c e.t.c
Buy z2. They both are same but z2 design is more better than z3.
z2 is the best all of xperia z
For the people confused between Z2 and Z3.
I was in the same dilemma 6 months back, and there was approximately a difference of $150 here.
Z3 over Z2.
1. New model
2. Seperate flap for Sim and Usb.
3. More slim
4. Will get update earlier then Z2.
5. Probably heat a little less than Z2. (although I never saw any msg regarding heat in my phone and never faced any special heat that i can tell over here. Every android phone heats up)
Z2 over Z3.
1. More Battery.
2. Almost same config but cheaper.
3. The front comes in black even in white phone and the whole black display is awesome when the screen is off.
4. More battery.
5. Better handling as the edges are little square Z3 edges are circular which is more prone to slip.
6. Earpiece and speaker grill are on the edges which cant be seen easily thus gives a better frontal.
I prefer Z2 because of Its full black frontal and square edge.
And yes it was way cheaper then Z3.
Rest everyone has their own perspective!!

Anonymous, 25 Feb 2016Guys please help im confused between sony xperia z2 and htc one (m8) eye which one should i buy ?Z2 has better cam , battery life , water resist ,noise cancelling for better music and phone call
Hello guys .. I used to work for sony mobile many years ago and i can tell you Z2 is one of the best phones we have made ! we have received many complaints about Z3 so we worked on it and improve it with Z3+ ... Z5 is a great phone but if you dont have the money for it just go for Z2 .. I really love it .. 3GB of ram so its super fast ,great looking ,compact in your hands with a great performance ,,amazing battery life ,, perfect phone .. i feel sorry that Sony will no longer going for more Z series Z5 was the last one but a new series coming up call (X)
Finally i think i will never change my Z2 i will just keep it even if i am going to buy a new phone ..
BTW Z ultra is a great phone too for the ppl who looking for gaming and movies
It is really a nice phone BUT mine is less than a year old but the mouth piece seems spoilt. Whenever I make a caller, the receiver cannot hear my voice. Could it be something to do with settings??
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2016No problem my friend ... Accept my apologies if I hurt you in any way. I was just confused bet... moreI recorded 10 minute video without issues. Another time captured 20 pictures without any issues. For me it is normal. Because usually I use it for web browsing. But trust me Z2 is superb phone. Brighter display, realistic camera, excellent performance, don't lag, most important unbeatable battery life. I'm extremely satisfied with my Z2. Also inserted 128GB micro SD card.
Buy Z2, protect it with case, screen protector and it will last longer. Enjoy.

I was just confused between both of em now I am satisfied and more inclined towards Z3 but Sony why you just change the place of notification light I mean it looks awesome in Z2.and kindly tell me how much time you can use camera before it force close due to heat up temperature both for taking picture and 1080p recording.
