Sony Xperia Z2 vs LG G2 vs Samsung Galaxy S4: specs comparison
Sony's latest and greatest Xperia Z2 flagship has arrived in town, and that means it's time to roll up our sleeves and check out how it stacks against the competition. And what easier way than pitting it against what are likely going to be its two most serious rivals: the LG G2 and Samsung's still current Galaxy S4 (not for long!). Sure, one could argue that a single-pronged approach like that is hardly conclusive, and he'd be right. Which is why in the days to come, you can expect to get more and more information about Sony's newest flagship. Until then, however, a good, old-fashioned specs comparison will have to suffice.

Now, before we even start, it's important to note that the Xperia Z2 has a hand up over the LG G2, and especially the now aging Galaxy S4. It's tag reads brand new, so it's not at all surprising to see it's packing some really bleeding edge hardware. It's got a bigger, 5.1-inch display (1080p), a bigger, 3300mAh battery, and the impressive 3GB of RAM. It's also outfitted with a set of stereo speakers -- and advantage over the Galaxy S4, but not the LG G2.
