Sony Xperia Z2: did you like it?
0. phoneArena 28 Feb 2014, 06:53 posted on
Ever since the Galaxy S5 and the Xperia Z2 were announced, we've been keeping track of what is a very visible trend with our readership: you seem to hate the new Samsung flagship. Instead, many of you are completely enthralled with Sony's new top shelfer. Our Samsung Galaxy S5 poll from earlier this week corroborates that notion, at least in part. An overwhelming 80%, or over 7000 of you, disliked what Samsung will be offering this flagship cycle. Now, we could sit here and try to argue objective facts, but, instead, we're more interested in gauging your feelings towards Sony's Xperia Z2...

no bro. it's all about how you shoot. if you have skills, you can rock even with a nexus 5. And if you can't, DSLR will have flaws too -_-

did you see the latest review about Z2 low light camera, huh? it outperform Lumia 1520 in low light condition.

just give it some time. it will go down. you won't have the latest xperia but you will at least have an xperia finally worth having.
anyway, they'll announce the successor 6 months from now so there'll surely be some big price drop.
who says frequent flagship releases have no advantages. just look at the price falling as the new flagships get announced and that's just within 6 months. we should all be happy.

i like the phone but it lacks in the security division where apple and samsung had introduced their fingerprint scanners.

pin lock or password is not enough for you?

Other than it being massive and no fingerprint sensor? Amazing.

too bad it's not accurate, at the MWC someone tests it but it shows a low heart rate which is not possible for healthy person

I absolutely love it, and would gladly drop any other OEM to try it if it was readily available in the States.

Still I ain't convinced doe, Sony could do better!

I honestly don't give a damn. If it's better than before, then good for them. If not, at least they tried

Sony must overhaul the UI which looks & feels so Android 2.3...

Curious....it's the opposite from Galaxy S5.
And the S5 is said to be the best of MWC.

The Z2 is more of an upgrade over the Z1 than the GS5 is of the GS4.

I liked it but screen size is important to me so I bought a Xperia Z Ultra.

Results are total opposite of what sammy got for the S5 :p :D

How can I not like the Z2? This is easily the best smartphone on the planet at the moment. Will be replaced by Z3 in the Fall. :)

boring design and non removeable battery

6 months cycle is not for the world it's mainly to accommodate the needs of their people in japan. But since they want to share the best technology in the world that's the reason why they release it globally.

If you ever wanted an Iphone with a big screen, I think SONY nails it. The most significant development is the 3 GB of RAM, That's the one igridient that gonna keep your UI smooth no matter the odds. Not exactly my style, I like Sammy's "discover ever more features" thing, but it's a beauty I'll admit.
