Sony Xperia Z2 vs HTC One (M8): preliminary comparison

0. phoneArena 25 Mar 2014, 11:12 posted on

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...

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"

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

My friend, I had the Z, and those plastic edges.....not cool, the HTC one really feels better, but try the Z1, or better yet, the Z2 ;)

It was in the past, from Android 4.3 Sony's UI is very well optimized.
It's a matter of taste. I don't like HTC's Sense at all and Sony's UI looks much better and much more beautifull for me. But Sense is still much better than Touchwiz.

Too bad sales will not be a close one LOL. HTC sales is so bad that they recently stop publishing their sales figures in the EOY financial reports.

Tell me about sony sales you idiot. How high are there. LOL I NEVER seen someone with a sony device. Never seen a xperia z in person. At least someone holding it XD. Before you talk about sales. LOOK at sony's. Dumba** LG is even doing 100x better then sony in sales. Sony can stick to the PS line. Since it's the only thing they are good at. I mean they dont even make Vaio anymore. LOL Failed on the PC market. They failed on the smartphone market as well.

Look at this arrogant fan girl trying to assert her points across. Firstly, Sony sales per annum is 10m, LG 12m. Doing basic maths, which I'm sure you lack of, the differences isn't 100x. Secondly, you never seen anyone holding a Z? That's just sad, I've never seen anyone holding a LG or HTC. Lastly, Sony makes profits from smartphones, LG and HTC bleeds money from it. If you can't make profits, youre a failure alrd, just like HTC and LG.

Sales are always going to be bigger for Apple and Sammy, at least this year....Sheip-syndrome, so your argument is invalid.

Unless HTC has managed to keep some killer features hidden I'd get the Z2.
Definitely the Z2!

1.Integrated active noise reduction; More important to me than dual speakers. Ultimately a smartphone is an outdoors device, so you will be most likely listening to music with a pair of earphones rather than from the dual speakers.
2.And the well known water resistance.
Now name me one killer feature that the HTC One 2014 will have that the Z2 doesn't have. ;-)

Copied dual speaker? Are you drunk or what?
Do you think One was the first phone with dual speakers?
And their Blink feed was a copy of WP itself.
keep on trolling.

Waterproof, noise cancelation, triluminous display, thinner than htc and it will sell very good

funny at best. sony is in the stereo speaker business long before HTC's CEO was even born. don't talk nonsense. you could say, sony brought stereo speakers from their audio division. stereo speakers in sony product is natural thing. they should have had them long time ago.

Your logic is so special,
Just enjoy yourself mate.
One point, Sony could make a powerful speaker while its phone is water proof.
One more point, please don't compare the history of Sony in audio with that of HTC.

Ever heard of an app called Flipboard? You should probably check it out since it's been downloaded over 100,000,000 times according to Google Play.

Noise cancellation only work with a specific pair of headphones. Triluminous is still not better than Super LCD3. HTC One will still have a more ergonomic form factor. I'll give you waterproof but that's all Z2 has.

i once hated HTC, but once i've tried the HTC One, im in love with it, before that i somehow regretted that I should have bought the S4, not HTC one, but now I appreciate it very much, much better than s4.
