Depends on the person, HTC One takes it for me.

Not with that terrible camera it doesn't.

I think it really depends on what you value though. The camera on the One isn't stellar, sure, but the size of the Z2 is a pretty big turnoff as well. It has phabletesque size without the benefits.
Ultimately, it's too hard to tell until we actually get our hands on these devices. Plus the real comparison will be made when the sequel to the One is announced.

Yeah, a terrible camera that s4 couldn't beat.

HTC one Imo, i own the z1 and in terms of holding it in the hand is pretty horrible compared to other devices, and z2 is even bigger.. Sheer power z2 wins but we'll have to see HTC m8 specs first to know :p.

Phones are getting ridiculously big now, entering phablet territory for a the standard flag-ship sized phone.

HTC's screen STILL looks better than the Z2's IMO.

One is just better in term of pixel density. Z2 wins in color reproduction

Man get z2 compact out close to this z2 launch because it is too big even for me who is an Sony fanboy. Hopefully HTC One 2 show how good a phone can be without being so damn big. i know its not waterproof but I take a smaller device over this giant.

Sony already show you "how good a phone can be without being so damn big."
And I'm sure my Z1 Compact is still good enough to compete with HTC One 2.

Does the Z2's camera have optical image stabilization? That was the major lack in the camera in the Z1, and I've not heard anyone talking about this for the Z2 yet.

How many times is Sony gonna put out the exact same phone with the exact same crappy UI?

I'd like it if PhoneArena could add how the display looks at full brightness to its handson/preview/review articles. Like for instance when you're watching a movie or youtube video and need to turn up the brightness, do the colors become washed out? Do the blacks become bright gray or do they retain most of their darkeness.

I'm not sure if phonearena posted this yet but I just checked my Att htc one and its downloading the kitkat update.
