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...

Such a rhetorical question.

Do wish Sony took more chances with design, but this water proof monster is ready to stomp like the "Godzilla" remake (which looks AMAZING, by the way!!).

Very Good looking phone
Awesome Display
Front facing dual-stereo speaker
Bigger battery than z1
Lighter than z1
Have more ram than z1
What's not to like about Z2?

Speakers aren't front facing, unless you view the phone directly from the top and the bottom simultaneously.

I haven't seen confirmation that it is definitely coming to the US though and if so if it will even be available on Verizon. If the answer is yes to both then this will definitely be my next phone. I was planning on the S5, but was just not impressed with it as much as I thought I would be, I don't care about the heart rate monitor or the fingerprint scanner.

Nice Speakers, Brilliant Screen and a Great Camera So definitely YES!
BTW I'd like to see some real comparison in the Camera Department.

I spent the past 5 months looking forward to the S5, and since it's launch, all I have looked at, read about and watched videos of is the Z2. In my humble opinion it's a beautifully crafted device with great specs. We all get bored of our devices eventually, usually within 6-12 months but I don't think I would ever get bored of looking at the Z2. I have the LG G2 currently and I'm very happy with it in terms of looks specs and performance, but it fails in build quality with the back creaking around the camera / button area, and you can push the back in slightly as the plastic is so flimsy.

My next phone will either be the Z2/Z3, iPhone6 or HTC's 'All New One', or whatever they chose to call it. If I'm spending £100 up front and £35 per month, the device has to be up there in terms of features and performance, but build quality is also a major thing for me.

for a every 6 month upgrade cycle of a flagship, defiantly "YES".

Yes, definitely! Even though the design on the Z2 didn't change much from the Z1, but it's still gorgeous. Sony fixed all the flaws from the Z1 and now they come up with the Z2 with better display, better speakers, faster processor and 3GB of RAM. So yeah, I like it!

But Sony should've add an IR blaster on the Z2.

It's not perfect but it's definitely likable. Especially with the water resistance and stereo speakers. Like to see a better UI on it though.

A Samsung fan fooling around in a Sony Xperia Z2 poll, how pathetic. Did Samsung give you 20 cents to come here and troll because of the amount of "No" the Galaxy S5 got in the poll?

Although it is not really a worth upgrade from Z1, but it is really a nice phone which done well in most aspects and it is definitely better than the GS5.

Yeah. S5 should have been a game changer but this year, it is the biggest dud.
