Sony Xperia Z2 hands-on: pushing the limits

0. phoneArena 24 Feb 2014, 07:09 posted on

It's been another six months, and so it's time for Sony to unveil yet another cuting-edge Android smartphone. Coming to replace the critically-acclaimed Xperia Z1, the Sony Xpera Z2 is the manufacturer's latest and greatest smartphone proposition. This time around, Sony seems to be really pushing the technology limits with this one - the Z2 is once again bringing some much-appreciated improvement in most areas, and, thankfully, a pretty major enhancement in the screen department. All in all, Sony's latest flagship shapes up as a very promising offering - one that we're definitely looking forward to...

If the HTC all new One really have the too-rounded corners with big bezels like on the leak pictures, I think I'll pass.

I was very excited for the release for the HTC M8 but from seeing the leak it looks like they skimped on the design. They still left that giant HTC logo which is blocking more screen real estate. Not a big deal for a great phone, but things like that really tend to bother me. Oppo Find 7 or iPhone 6 for me now.

This z2 is a Beauty. The Best Processor so far. IPS LCD better than previous Zs.

Judging by the S5 leak, I really don't see why would ANYONE go for that instead of this phone.

Granted, I have a feeling Samsung is playing a distinctive game this time.. that plain looking and rugged S5 looks purposely done like that because of the S5 PRIME that will be all about class.

Looks good. Hope will work as it should cause I sold my Z1 after couple of days of use due to the camera crash plus the camera performance not as I thought totaly crap. Now I'm rocking with Lumia 1520 great camera .

I know some people with the Z1 and none have issues with the Z1. Odd.

Each to their own. The Z1 was top dog until now and that is the way it goes until the next king is crowned.....

Finding a way to criticise a phone it has an expandable storage of 64Gb..if not satisfied then start your own mobile company...

Ever heard of memory cards? I would rather have 16gb with expandable memory than be limited to 32gb internal memory!I suspect even if it had 32gb with expandable memory, you would have said FAIL. So transparent...

After watching S5 unpacked I have to say: I don't want fitness, I want Xperia Z2!
Hell yea.

You can do fitness in a classier way with Z2 with S-band..... no need to keep fingering the phone LOL, Z2 is said to be capable of recording heart rates continuously... :D

What a great video, was like 10 minutes of him going meh. I already don't like him much as a reviewer but man you sounded unimpressed which is beyond me. This is the phone of 2014. Unless HTC pulls it out of their ass, but this phone has it all

It's either this or S5 and I like the design of Z2 more. My only concern is the screen has a protector that can easily be scratch and removing it will remove the logo. Can any Z1 users tell me how they circumvented this? I don't want to apply screen protector, it's like applying screen protector over another screen protector.
