The Best Xperia in History
Matix has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
When it came out, this was clearly the best phone in the world and even now, nearly two nad a half year later its overall performance is very good. Support of Android 6.0.1 and still good specs make this phone pretty usable, but in few things this phone is just to old.

Excellent Build Quality with Impressive Speed
chamilatgamage has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I suddenly shifted from Samsung to SONY. Main reason was,
• Very Impressive UI.
• Continuously Software Updates (SONY did no abandon its entire “Z” class. They still giving update starting from their first “Z” model.)
• Camera will hold your breath while taking snaps. (Both cameras are perfect. Doesn’t matte front camera having 2MP it still shooting clear shots.)
• Most importantly YOU WILL LOVE SONY “Z” UI

The Sony Xperia Z2 might be one of the best phones I've ever used. It's fast, gorgeous (albeit slightly fragile), has a stunning camera, great display and front firing speakers. My only true complaint is the dual glass housing. For the Xperia Z5 I'd rather have a all metal body or a solid polycarbonate body.

This phone worth every penny. Excellent performer packed with powerful processor and great camera. I have been using this phone from two weeks and already had Xperia Z1. One who is looking for premium design+stable performance should go for it :)

This is an amazing phone that I have ever used. But when you buy it, please buy a back cover also. It may protect the frame from accidental drops. You may think, this is a very heaver phone with its size and weight. But it makes a premium feeling on your hand. Camera is amazing. This is not a money wasting phone.

Build quality is top notch, feels like a jewel. Screen is amazing, rich reds and greens, deep blacks and feels like its on top the the glass. Camera is awesome. Speakers are great, if M8 is 10, Z2 is an 8. Waterproofing is useful. Some people have build quality issues, mines flawless. Wish the back glass was deeper black, it's a weird bluish tint. WiFi sometimes drops out. Performance is on par with Sense 6 and stock android. UI is nice. Battery life for me is around 4.5-5 hours, which is low for Z2.

BEST PHONE SO FAR!!!
xxCearxx has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I´have owned many phones. Coming from a Galaxy s5, I am flabbergasted with the Xperia z2. The areas where the Galaxy s5 were flawles are covered in the beautiful Body of the Z2. I owned a HTC One (m7) last year, and I was in love of the front facing speakers. Now, I am boomed with the speakers of the Xperia. They are pretty good, and clear. Even wet, the speakers are good! So far, I think I have found the perfection in this Slim phone. THANKS SONY!

i had it!! but i was so disappointed i returned it!
Rain017 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
i like the phone but i ended up with my 2nd choice m8 but i think its a smarter choice than z2 if you are up to photography go take z2 but YOU HAD BEEN WARNED with OVERHEATING ISSUES but if performance of the ui and an average camera go for m8 it has no problem with UI and no OVERHEATING issues i got disappointed with the phone though gaming is a nice experience

If you buy this, you definitely won't be disappointed! Everything in it is made with such thought. Everything from the design to the camera and the internals is close to perfection.
The build feels so sturdy and it looks so beautiful with the aluminium and glass. The waterproofing works like a charm for me. The display is big, super sharp and has very nice colours and viewing angles.
Even with heavy use the battery lasts easily a full day. With lighter use is possible to get even two full days with it! With the snapdragon 801 it runs blazingly fast and smooth through both the UI and any of the newest games.
The camera is very good, though the processing could do a bit better job. Still the pictures are very detailed, have super accurate colours and is nice to have that 4:3 aspect ratio got a wider field of view. Slow motion and 4k video work very well, though with 4k the device can heat up a bit too much if you record for several minutes.
Everybody is bragging about the call quality, but in my opinion is very good. At least on my side. The voices are clear and very loud. Nobody has complained on the other side either.
Z2 is the perfect multimedia device with the stereo speakers, awesome display and the Sony Walkman app. Noice cancelling is also a must have after using it!
If your getting a new phone, don't overlook the Z2! It's an amazing device with little to no cons and it looks so beautiful! Just fantastic!

Never Had Better
SanteriAT has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
My experience with the Z2 has been great this far. Everything has been at least great and underwater shots taken with the Z2 are beautiful. The display is gorgeus and the size is great (could be bigger). This far I've had no problems with the phone and I'm confident I don't have to worry about having problems in the future. Sony has done great job with Z2.

Elegant, fast, responsive, this phone is one of the best phone atm. Moreover, it's IP certified. I can consume media while relaxing in the tub without worrying about my phone getting wet.
Not a fan of the UI though and it could have more useful features, like my previous Note3, to really get the most out of Android.

Best Flagship of 2014 till date
unmaskedfalesh has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
It is simply the best of the Sony till date.
The glass body is gorgeous.
The camera is awesome.
The waterproofing is another best thing about the device.
Those plastic crap and metal hot heads just don't come any where near the awesome Z2.

The best flagship phone of H1 2014
FaisalWibowo11 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Design: so sexy, elegeant, and sleek. Plus it has IP58 waterproof certification and camera shutter button, which offer humongous advantage.
Overall Specifications: It has IPS 1080p screen, Snapdragon 801, 3GB of RAM, 20.7MP camera, 3200mah battery.. Definitely top of the line specs
Screen: I am generally very pleased with the 5.2" IPS TRILUMINOS screen as it has wide colour gamut, pleasantly saturated colours, and excellent viewing angles. But the screen struggles a bit in direct sunlight, but nothing drastic.
Processing power: with snapdragon 801 which is currently the fastest chipset on the market and 3GB of RAM, the overall performance is lag free and buttery smooth even if intensive apps and games are running
UI: user interface is very elegant, simplistic, simple, and very close to stock android interface. And addition of user friendly features such as double tap to wake, bring to ear to answer calls, glove mode, pencil stylus, etc input are great and very much appreciated.
Camera: The image quality is one of my most important aspects in terms of reviewing a phone. And thankfully, I am very astounded with the image quality. It has plenty of detail, even in low light. Great spot on exposure, accurate colours, great dynamic range, and very good noise levels with no chroma noise and only finely grained luminance noise. In comparison, The camera of Xperia Z2 is able to totally obliterate the best 13MP cameras such as galaxy S4 and note 3. And it is on par with the galaxy...

Good, but not great
PhotoPixel has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
IMHO, Z2 it's only error correction Z. Camera still not better than the old iphone 5S and SGS4. Camera in terms of photo quality, between Z2 and Nokia 808 Pureview huge difference. 808 still king. Communication quality is decent, sometimes hard to hear the interlocutor. Wi-fi catches not very good, not as strange it may seem ...

Best Piece of Technology
freddwaruh has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Z3 aside this is the best phone i know of. The minor tweaks in the Z3 i can live without. The Z2 is just the only phone worth the money you actually pay for and even more. In kenya only version we have is the unlocked model but its worth every single penny. I got the black one but soon i will not eeven think twice will buy another white one. will not buy a Z3

The worst quality phone
natrajee has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
This is natarajan customer was using xperia Z2 now it is in dustbin after just 4 months.
The screen is not capable to sustain small hits. First time it fall down from my printer just 3/4 feet from table. The glass cracked like anything.
Checked with sony they simply said physical damage never cover under warrenty. Hey Sony your product is not in the quality for 40,000/- indian rupees.
Even a phone for 7,000/- is good how could we accept that.
I replaced the screen in my own cost. In another two days the screen got damaged. The phone was just kept into my jeans packet.
Sony Xperia mobiles are worst phone never seen it. This is stright forward money thefting. If not resolved Sony have to face lot of issues in India.
Never send the same message just copy and paste for any query.

el7deRaul has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
The phone is great, display, design, sound is awesome, the front speakers really make a difference, when you use a phone with the speaker on the back it's really annoying when you want to leave it on the table and the sound gets blocked, that never happens with the Z2. The camera is very fast and takes great pics, even night, low light, doesn't matter how the light is the picture will look great.
However, if I had to choose something bad, I'd say the call quality, it isn't that great, you can't hear the other person cristal clear if you're on a busy street, you can with a phone like the the Moto X. and the heat issue, after you use heavy games for a while it heats up a lot but I guess that's normal for every phone.
