Sony takes $50 off the price of the Sony Xperia Z2 in the U.S.
posted by Alan F. / Jul 19, 2014, 2:11 PM
While that might be good news, we should add that the Xperia Z2 is on back-order and the current shipping date is unknown. The model being sold is the international LTE variant. This model supports LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 20, and should work on both AT&T and T-Mobile networks.
Earlier reports that the Sony Xperia Z2 would be a Verizon exclusive turned out to be false, or possibly a misunderstanding. Big Red is selling the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. Still, there were a couple of pictures that allegedly showed a Verizon branded Xperia Z2 handset. But with the Sony Xperia Z3 getting unveiled as soon as August, those Verizon customers calling their local store every day for the Sony Xperia Z2, might as well give it up and wait for the new model.

Its specs are quite as impressive. If you can buy it on contract then it would be considerably cheaper.

i know it's expensive but i'm telling you every single penny is worth it... here is little bet of my past phone use history, Z2>M8>S5>M7>Iphone 5s>note 3> thats in last year... i wanted to phone that i like and keep until it last... i don't like covers and i have bad habit dropping the phone (put in my pockets and it slides, i cant were jeans coz i had surgery) so but i have this about 2 months on ATT and not going anywhere... G3 almost convince me... but hell i will take 3200mAh over 3000...any days and i have friends ATT who told me not good and i can get away easily for day n half without charging it...(2 Exchange email, FB, FB messenger, wassup, viber, google now, and few other apps) i would say save some money... i had to do that.. but telling you man it's worth every penny of it... that feeling you get when you hold this beast no other phone can have it, not even apple (that's my opinion) and if know about custom roms u can get CM11 on there too...

Z2. Better screen (brighter and more contrast), battery (lasts longer in real life usage, not just numbers), water and dust resistant, smoother UI, noise cancellation, more solid build overall.

Preparing for the release of Z3 very soon, poor sony fans, cant get a flagship to be flagship for more than 6 months

So? I don't give a s*it if Sony releases a phone that beats my Z2. And why would I? It's just good if it's better than Z2. It means that they have kept making their Z series even better. A flagship will always remain a flagship. Eventually there just will be a newer flagship that beats it. That's life for ya. I'll keep loving my Godzilla for the next 2 years.

u r right in a way but i disagree with your statement- "poor sony fans". because sony fans won't be bothered and they would still be defending your statement. The only those who would be bothered are sony haters. they (sony haters) try to capitalize the fact of 6 month flagship cycle into an argument. If the haters don't try to create argument then everything would go fine.

I went from Sony z1 to lg g3.lg g3 has got good screen (size) speaker and camera but as a all round phone and entertainment gadget I just had to go with the z2 after 3 days.lg lags and most people reviewing don't mention this it also lags will I play games like injustice speaker is good and loud but in a head phone no where near sony in terms of quality and battery is no comparison.I am not saying z2 is better cause dam I miss that screen and camera but sony z2 is a better all rounder for ME

My next phone would be Moto X+1 (or whatever it is called). After 3 Sony phones, wouldn't even touch Sony phones with a barge pole. Their updates and bugfixes are nightmare. Kitkat on ZL has been horrendous wrt battery drain.
