The Xperia Z2 is Sony's greatest smartphone yet. It is sleek, powerful, and equipped with a very capable camera. But could it be better than the new HTC One (M8)? Perhaps this preliminary comparison will aid us in finding the answer...

Did we forget the Z2 is almost the same size as the Note 3? You're trying way too hard and going nowhere.

Compare the size of S5 and Note3 with regard of waterproof feature of S5 and you'll get your answer.

Lol, you are hating HTC in every signle post from you. You like S5 design more than HTC One, even it looks like band-aid. You always find something bad against HTC and admire Sony or Samsung. Seriously, do they pay you?

Sony is much wider than HTC, tallness isn't everything.
HTC is really tall but its corners are curved and ergonomic so I belive it will be more comfortable to hold than Z2.

I personally like both Sony and HTC phones. Finally Sony didn't put the TFT old crap into their flagship.

You ignored my statement again lol. I'm not surprised. The Z2 is larger than the S5 and that's a fact.

Btw, Sony doesn't care about you. Just letting you know in case you haven't already.

Removable battery is a big plus I must say, but please, do this, hold the Z1, hold the M7, and hold the S4, and tell me wich feels better, more strudy and premium, Personally I love my Z1 but I'm not blindfolded ok?

HTC always made beautifull devices and the M8 is quiet a looker, but Sony has a little more "sugar and Spice"

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.

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

You sir, deserve my like x)

I agree with you, M8 and Z2 are winderfull phones, but I'd go for Sony's device, Simpler UI and overhall superiority. M8 is too well design, almost looks a bit fem... Guess the darker one would look good on my pocket though.

But...last years ulrapixel really stole my credit for HTC
