Description

The water and dust-resistant Xperia Z2 comes only six months after the previous Xperia Z1 flagship was released. Although it's quick update, the Xperia Z2 features a larger, 5.2-inch IPS display that boasts a new imaging technology, called Live Color LED. Of course, the screen is not the only improvement over its predecessor. Although it's even thinner and lighter, the Xperia Z2 runs on the brand new 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 chipset, paired with a fantastic 3 GB of RAM. The 20.7MP camera on its back is capable of 4K recording, slow-motion video, and adding real-time effects. Stereo speakers are now available, as well as noise cancellation and many more software and hardware extras. The Xperia Z2 is powered by a 3200mAh battery, which considerably improves talk time. It runs the latest Android version, 4.4 KitKat. All things considered, the Z2 is an improvement in every way.
