Ohh fanboy say this when the gimmicky camera turns into ultimate failure. Say this when galaxy s5 and xperia z2 destroy the one in sales.

I have used htc one, galaxy 1 to 4, iphone 5, lg g2.

i can say the best ui in order galaxy, lg g2, htc one, iphone 5

reasons were touchwiz was easy for me plus i have grown onto it.
lg ui is similar to touchwiz could say it is a copy so the similar feel wasnt too bad. iphone is boring and hence i sold it.
htc one was clean but some parts of the ui really annoyed me. sold it as well.

i have not tried sonys ui but it feels flat and does not seem very complicated. It is pretty much a soft overlay of kit kat android.

im getting the z2 shifting away from samsung as it has alot to offer. i dont mind the pricing but it will be a whole new experience.

in phone wise i think z2 beats htc m8. It has more to offer and it looks cleaner. The htc ones design was also very good (dont know about the new m8 just seems more round) and the matte aluminium on the phone was really nice.(once in a while i would remove the case to feel the metal).

the only thing that would temp me to buy the m8 would be the stereo speakers which is one of the main selling points. The camera might be a gimmick but who knows.
The z2 somehow follows the road of where the samsung s5 should be. It was a geeks phone with high specs but it seems more consumer based but im suprised high specs was not what the consumer wanted. The heart monitor just seems useless and im a fan of stereo speakers.

the htc m8 case looks appealing but doesnt match the usability of the samsung or lg g2 flip cases.

and waterproofing is not a gimmick since i always freak out when theres rain while im outdoors. Water proofing always give you a sense of security.

Disagree. Z2 > All New HTC One, and that's why: Sony has waterproof and beautifull design. Look at speakers of HTC they aren't symmetric, it looks ugly. Moreover Sony's display should be more accurate in colours reproduction and should have wider colour gamut.

Z2 has quality stereo speakers and Note 3 doesn't have. Than Z2 is waterresistant while Note 3 is not. That's why Z2 has such dimensions.

The new HTC One has big dimensions but doesn't have waterresistance and has display smaller than display of Z2 while Z2 has quality stereo speakers.

Enough..each phone is great in terms of design but the z2 is better..the thing is that the new htc one has the same crap camera..there is no ois..i've seen the videos and it shakes like hall..that huge bezel on the bottom is damn ugly..i have no idea why they opted for software buttons but sticked to that bezel in the same time..actually the bottom bezel is bigger than the one on the last year model..the z2 has more screen estate, and also great stereo speakers which sound good even if it's waterproof..right now, the z2 is the better option..hope to see a great lg g3..not to mention that the z3 is on its way later this year..

You are such a retard. The newer samsung phones are NOT waterproof. Before you say something. Actually know something sony fanboy. Idiot..Water resistant isn't water proof. And Waterproof isnt a big deal. I dont think people fear is dropping there phones in the toilet. It's more of them getting the devices's screen cracked...idiot idiot idiot, Waterproof...A feature you wont even use

You say bar of soap. Wrong retard. It's shape is. Which is good. Its corners are round and make the device feel 100x better in the hand. Its curved. IT HAS DETAIL. All of these which the xperia z lacks. Looks like a pathetic piece of a thin brick

My career tell me go for m8 cus htc devices have a better optomize than sony and samy product..
Primume feel is first reason that i pick up a phone..
I have both xperia z and one and sure i tell u one faar better than z..
Z2is great but sony 's phone almost isnt same that one we see in advertise and in work has a less performance that i expected..
Specially in ui i dont think any phone come to near to sense 6 with most beautiful and charismatic usage.

Hey Papa, please tell us in what manner does the M8 beats the Z2??

I guess they both beat S5, but that's old news...
