Sony Xperia Z2: did you like it?

I voted yes but part of me said no. Sony finally release a good smooth smartphone after so many disappointments(xperia z tops the list). However, with superior smartphone with competitively low price tags like LG G2 and Nexus 5 and beast like Note 3, still cast doubts if Z2 is even worth it.

I have the LG G2 and I love it but the plastic back is very flimsy and it creaks around the camera / button area. I am seriously considering switching to the Z2. It is a beautifully crafted device made from premium materials. It offers everything I would want from a phone. Haven't seen any pricing yet from my current Network, but they have it as coming soon. It could be very expensive but I guess you do tend to pay more for better quality, and the Z2 is up there with the best.

That is a very dumb idea. If you have a G2, the Z2 will be a very mild update. Hell, I got Optimus G pro but will never consider jumping to G2, Z2, G2 Pro and Note 3. If I where you, save your cash for next gen 64 bit architecture multi RAM phones coming this year or the next.

This person said they are interested in a premium quality phone not specs. None of the phones you mention can be considered premium quality since they are made of cheap plastic.

Jumping to a z2 from a G2 is not stupid , the z2 is a better phone.

1 drop of the Z2 and you'll be wishing you stuck with the LG... Sad thing about premium aluminium bodied smartphones, they don't look so hot after hitting the ground. Be sure to put a thick otter box case or similar on it!

Silly excuse, i rarely if ever drop my phones and even scuffed aluminum looks more attractive than scratched chipped plastic. The build on the G2 is pretty strong though, one scratch on my screen after slamming it between my car door. That's pretty impressive. I still think the z2 is a worthy upgrade to any phone on the market. Thing screams elegance and power

you get what you pay for. Z2 has what note 3 and g2 doesn't have: strong stereo speakers, display with the best color pallet on the market and maybe the best display on the market (according to hands on), stunning premium superior design, true water and dust proof, one of the best cameras on the market, digital noise cancellation, slightly newer cpu, more ram then g2, near stock android, beautiful walkman app, blazing fast response, etc. no match. there is nothing to think about here.

I agree. If money is no object Z2 will be the strongest candidate. This is the best Xperia line so far.

sony phones are the best. even the Z1 and other smartphones of sony, but the problem is, sony is too expensive!

But has BIG forehead and chin...
... and I still scratch my head over the fact that sony hasn't incorporated wireless charging already. That would negate the need for that ugly magnetic port and probably solve a myriad of sealing issues around the port as well.

Those big bezels and onscreen buttons kills the Z2 for me.
I know they're there for waterproofing but i dont need waterproof so unless sony releases a Z2L then i'll buy Sony.
Im happy with my Note 3

Z1 should have been like Z2. minor upgrade as a flagship.
53. akki20892 (Posts: 3901; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
Oh hell yes....go z2. every Sony fans come on, say it: Go Z2
55. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5993; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
I liked the Z2 a whole lot more than the GS5. If the Z2 is available on VZW, I will buy one.

You know whatever evleaks leak is 100% true.

I wish it had more wow factors, i dont mind having fingerprint scanner, nonetheless, it is overall a great improvement.

Best of MWC 2014

It has a great 5,2" triluminos display, an excellent camera, IP58, noise cancelling headphones, a large battery, clean UI, etc.
What's not to like?
21. Amir1 (unregistered)
then go with z1 compact if size really bothers you. otherwise i don't see meaningful size difference between Z2 and the other flagships from other companies. if you're looking for the best overall premium flagship it's either z1 compact or z2.

The Z2 is too big while the Z1 Compact is too small for me. I'll wait for Z2 Compact. It should come with a 4.7 screen, my sweet spot.

This.The Z2 is too big for me, the Z1 C is too small for me.
Z2 has 5.2" screen and is 146.8 x 73.3
Z1 C has 4.3" and is 127 x 64.9
Thats at 2cm drop, there's no middle ground
I want a ZL2 with a 4.7-5" screen in a 130-135 x ~70 body

horrible battery life, fragile build quality, and so much more not to like

"but enough of my Samsung,...." bmm bmm, tsch!
74. williamdroid (Posts: 125; Member since: 19 Jan 2014)
Display it too small for me
The camera is great +1
I hate the huge bezels. I do not need a waterproof Smartphone. Be it Sony or Samsung
I never use the headphones that come with the smartphones because they are always sub par. Heck, even SkullCandy or Beats or JBL's are better.
I need a removable battery.
The UI is good but i hate onscreen buttons.
So its not for me. I love my Note 3 but im no blind fanboy.
If i had to choose, the Z2>GS5
