0_Xperia_Z2_Black_Front_ColorrangeSony Mobile has unveiled its new flagship, the Xperia Z2 (D6502, D6503, D6543), at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow in Barcelona. This is the same device that we have heard so much of recently under its “Sirius” codename.

The device is largely as expected and comes with a 5.2-inch FHD TRILUMINOS Phosphor LED display (424 PPI), with Live Colour LED powered by X-Reality for mobile. The new Live Colour LED technology uses red and green phosphor with blue LEDs and customised colour filters to produce a brighter and more uniform light according to Sony.

It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset (2.3GHz quad-core processor and Adreno 330 graphics) and 3GB RAM. The OmniBalance design is adopted from the Xperia Z1, it comes with a one-piece aluminium frame with front and back glass panels.

Camera duties are taken care of by the 1/2.3-inch 20.7 MP Exmor RS image sensor, Sony’s G Lens and the BIONZ for mobile image processing engine. New camera features include the ability to record 4K video (3840×2160 pixels/30p) and Timeshift video, enabling you to capture 120fps video footage at 720p resolution. There is also a new Movie Creator allowing you to trim and crop your videos, plus add slowdown effects with preview functionality.

The Xperia Z2 offers stereo speakers for the first time in the Xperia range. The handset also supports noise cancelling headphones (the MDR-NC31EM headset will be included in the box). Other features include 16GB internal storage (12GB usable), microSD memory card support, IP55/IP58 dust and water resistance, a 2.2Mp front-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n/ac), MHL, NFC, ANT+ and a high-capacity 3200mAh sealed battery capable of 15 hours of GSM talk time.

The Xperia Z2 has a thickness of 8.2mm (dimensions: 146.8 x 73.3 x 8.2mm) and weighs 163 grams. The Sony Xperia Z2 will launch in three colours (black, purple and white) with Android 4.4 KitKat in March 2014.

    Hope the next flagship will have a good DAC.

  • Carljn

    I knew this phone was coming. I just didn’t think I’d actually be impressed by the step from Z1. But this is actually one beautiful piece of hardware. Kudos, once again, Sony!

  • this is the best smartphone of the world

  • Fanq

    Xperia z1 just arrived then z2 shows up. I wonder when z3 will arrive?

  • Kacho_ON

    This is amazing they got everything right, IPS display, rivaling Apples display.
    Snapdragon 801
    3GB RAM
    Front facing stereo speakers. I’m shocked

  • sadasd

    Stop making “flagship” please

  • Martin Ambre

    told u new fone on the way

  • Carljn

    Z1 came out six months ago. Z3 will probably show up six months from now.
    There is no reason to complain about this really. I think it’s great that we’re able to get our hands on a flagship that’s less than half a year old no matter when your contract runs out or when your current phone breaks.

  • rvjaywaks

    HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!! 3gb ram, snapdragon 801.

  • Guanaco
  • assasinezio

    Verge says the new IPs clear led displays are a MASSIVE improvement over that of Z1…….yeaaaaaa….Ian happy for sony but sad for my Z1

  • Govind

    Live Colour LED?

  • Giannikosmo

    Congratsulations Sony!!! I’m very excited!!!

  • Adrian M

    When we become android 4.4.2 z1?

  • assasinezio

    Forgot something in my previous comment…>>>>>it has STEREO SPEAKERS…damn this time Sony didn’t miss out on anything….

  • Patrol619

    Not to mention that Xperia Z was released less than a year ago..

  • Anukul

    z2 have a good dac !

  • Giannikosmo

    Xperia Z2, the best of Sony that had gone better is now even better!

  • Carljn

    Released yes. But it was announced exactly one year ago.

  • dr1xer


  • Itsarapong Intoum

    what is it ? I think they still use the built-in from qualcomm .

  • Billy de Fretes

    i hope they improve 3.5 mm earphone sound quality. never test on Z1 but my xperia Z little bit dissapointing

  • jag

    LED display? is that true?

  • Lucke

    It does digital out through USB to external DAC also.

  • xperiaDROID

    I’m not amazed by this because it has the same design as the Z1, the specs are amazing though. I don’t know I’m gonna get this or not, I think I will have to wait for the HTC M8 a.k.a One 2014 to be unveiled before making my decision.

    Now, the phones on my list that I want so far are:
    Sony Xperia Z2
    HTC One (2014)
    LG G Pro 2

  • Kamil1308

    Is it worth selling my Z1 to buy Z2 ??

  • rickiking

    I still love my Xperia Z, but this is a worthy replacement.

  • xperiaDROID

    WHERE’S KAZUO HIRAI? Ittai nanida yo?

  • laci_csk

    When you grow up?

  • the_tyrant

    They have included digital noise cancellation so I guess sony has covered all bases this time

  • au

    What the stunning specs! And expensive too! Will be there Xperia Z2 Compact too?

  • xperiaDROID

    Most likely in March.

  • Abdullah Robben

    i love this video ….and this phone

  • JonGH

    these guys seems to have got their hands on an early version of the Z2. they posted a review and some comparisons, I found some interesting things from them:

  • roeshak

    Xperia Z2? Looks more like z1 to me with a few refinements. No thanks. Skipping this for sure

  • Stephen

    Phosphor LED display
    a world first for sony
    and my z1 isnt even ips display :(

  • thumble

    Excellent phone i will ordered as soon as possible sony knows how to make excellent amartphone

  • FredrikAn

    Yes. :)

  • now ? i do not know =/

  • 3rdflyleaf

    Waiting for Z2 compact. :D

  • laci_csk

    Were is the micro SD card slot and the front facing camera? This is upgrade or downgrade from Z1?

  • Alexandru Florin

    never had a sony phone/smartphone..i was so close to buy the z and the z1 but there was something that was putting me on, i know,,it was the z2..

  • Fëanáro Nénmacil

    Thought the same thing, I really wish they said it for real in the conference

  • Paul

    Guys something is wrong!!! First of all the snapdragon 901 is the 8974ac chip which clocks in at 2,5ghz!!! so that has to be off! So I guess that we should also expect a Z3 in a few months with the the snapdragon 805 and a 2K display?

  • Paul

    Sorry! I mean’t 801 and not 901 in the first post!!!

  • laci_csk

    So everything its OK now ?

  • dr1xer

    No. S800. This is just a rev of Z1. Same spec. Just some improvment here and there.

  • Guest

    OMG Sony!
    Sony, Sony, and ONLY SONY!
    <3 It's a Sony <3

  • nidou bossy

    OMG Sony!
    Sony, Sony, and ONLY SONY!
    <3 It's a Sony <3

  • this phone is PERFECT i must have it

    but is it just me or is the bottom bezel slightly thinner than the top? i like symmetry and that would dissapoint me alot but i think i am being paranoid

  • nidou bossy


  • marco

    Fuck !!! Its still 16 GB internal memory

  • laci_csk

    No its not thinner.

  • Adrian M


  • laci_csk

    This is a forum for Z2, not for kitkat or else. You are not trolling, are you?

  • Bryan Ng

    My next phone this year :)))

  • Me

    why couldn’t it be full white like zl

  • ok i have spent like 1 hour searching around about this phone and i am in love i litterally can’t find ANYTHING i dislike the only dissapointment would be that it seems but i am not sure that the frame has been colored silver from the dark metal grey on the original z1

    i HOPE that this is not true and that the frame is the same color as the z1 i really really hop this

    i am preordering this phone the second i can do it

  • o.O

    omggggggggggggggggg =D

  • Apo

    Cant see the front camera,is there any?

  • Gregor

    Wow, that noise cancelling Tech sounds interesting. Unique feature on a phone? But special headphones required and included. Any more info about this?

  • inspire

    Well, probably he’s a German… german bekom = get :p I get crazy learning german :/

  • Samsung

    Samsung galaxy S5 is the winner!!!!bye Sony!

  • manutd

    screeeen what ppi???????

  • Chris

    This is great! Considering to replace my Z1 with Z2.

  • Sean

    Does it have wet finger tracking?

  • Colby Leong

    Physically, looks exactly like the Z1, with some really great alterations, and slight changes to the coloring on the aluminum band. I like the improved speakers and that when paired with the, Sony’s MDR NC31EM Noise Cancelling Headset, can reduce 98% of ambient sound. An excellent step forward, so much of an improvement over the Z1 to be called a flagship, can be argued about. However this is a sign that Sony is taking a great step in the right direction. I am curious to see what Samsung has in there flagship, because that better have Sony pushing themselves to improve on this great phone.

  • Colby Leong

    That would be awesome…

  • Colby Leong

    Never really cared for Apple’s display, hopefully they bring bigger screens for there next gen of phones. I actually wouldn’t be surprised if they looked for help from Sony, Samsung, LG, etc for there screens

  • Gregor

    Any why only 16 Gb internal? Sony should use 64Gb on flagship models.

  • hansip

    Nahh.. It is better and exciting but my z ultra screen is too wide to be forgotten.. Now where’s that Z2 Ultra? :D

    On a side note, the Z1 Compact is quite good with it’s battery life. Now will it be the same with Z2? Sure i hope so, the same IPS screen only upped into 1080p with 1.5 bigger battery.. I’d bet 7 hours of screen can be achieved daily :)

  • laci_csk

    Are you still here? You said :”Samsung galaxy S5 is the winner!!!!bye Sony!

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    New Audio Pin, old handsfree is not compatible?

  • Gregor

    No? Have never said such thing. I only use Sony, a Samsung isnt a choice for me. Z2 is impressive but 16 Gb internal is a bad choice of Sony.

  • laci_csk

    Sorry my mistake, it was Paul.

  • Jayesh

    Hey. Satus bar and three buttons (back,home and recent app) are totally transparent. Woooo…

  • sreenamboothiri server is down after CET 8.30am :D
    Thats called SONY Magic :D :)

  • Ghareeb Saeed

    No, I’ll stick to my Z1! I’ll pass this time sony!

  • Asbjørn Eliassen

    I have the “original z” and are still happy. I assume that if I break it, I’ll end up with sony again. I like the quick incremental jumps that sony takes. To stay on top, one needs to follow the trends and have the best HW to support this. I also like that they are more open on when they drop producing new firmwares and which phones won’t get the next Android release. I’ll let sony surprise me with the Andriod 5.0 update and from then I won’t expect much more onwards…

  • Rammstone

    16gb storage? seriously?

  • manutd

    why would you need more?

  • Gregor

    Yeah. unbelieveble. There should be 32 Gb minimum but 64 a better choice.

  • Doubleyoupee

    Nice specs, but it’s way too big unfortunately.
    I wish they would make a Xperia ZL2…not Z2.

  • Gregor

    Spotify playlists takes several Gb. One TV-show episode is 1.5-2 Gb. A 1080p Movie is 10-15Gb. Many new android game is 2 Gb big. 4k-fliming? 16 Gb is way too small för a flagship device.

  • Samuel

    Because of 4K video

  • Cmmdr Keen

    no it’s 801

  • Cmmdr Keen


    (sorry you did it on 2 comments, don’t get mad at me, i have good intentions)

  • Cmmdr Keen

    you can upgrade to extra 128gb but it costs 180

  • manutd

    wow woooow stop!if you want to watch a movie,you buy a led tv!if you want 64 gb,then buy an microsd card.I pay 30-40 euros for one of those.microds cards are so cheap right now!why pay 100 euros more for 64 gb internal storage?thank god this is not iphone,so we have different prices because of storage.that;s why you have microsd slot!!

  • Cmmdr Keen

    you can get 128gb microsd cards now

  • Rammstone

    you only get about 11gb of actual storage to save apps on. sure I could buy a huge sd card, but that doesn’t help anything when you can’t save apps on it. Xperia S had 32gb. Z1s has 32gb which was just a natural upgrade from Z1 so why go back to 16gb on a device that is supposed to be premium? a lot of games are 1gb+ these days. Unless Sony implement app2sd in 4.4 this is a real dealbreaker for me. so disappointed

  • Cmmdr Keen

    stop w*nking so much :P

  • Stevan Dj

    This is just so fuckin’ AWESOME !!!!

  • Darren Gaspé

    It has arrived Z2 ftw

  • Rammstone

    good luck getting apps on it

  • hansip
  • Cmmdr Keen

    yeah shitty android, we need wp8.1 on sony devices

  • Cmmdr Keen

    if you are referring to the 3 holes on the bottom then they are the pseaker, the phone still has 3.5mm audio jack so im not sure what you are talking about

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    So, there is NEW audio-pin AGAIN, old handsfree such as amazing Mh1c is not comatible? Can u confirm?
    It’s still CTIA compatible, everything will work normally, though you will need special headphones to enable the built-in Digital Noise Cancelation… If you have a standalone Noise Cancelation headphones with CTIA plug it will work normally
    the point is the new change will allow you to use NC headphones that does not actually have hardware NC… it’s in the phone… my guess there’s a special mic that take the outside sounds/noise and then the phone will repeat it inverted to cancel it from your hearing…
    This will make Noise cancelation headphones cheaper and smaller & lighter ( no need for NC hardware and battery ), in the same time you will be able to use your favorite headphone normally…

  • Netto Dashius Hexareus

    Oh yeah sure.. With cheap plastic shell, old AMOLED, and yes, single speaker… ooh.. and no DAC… sure, S5 is the winner…
    Sorry for the hashtag…

  • Netto Dashius Hexareus

    Hell yeah!!! DAC-enabled phone!! That’s just what I need…

  • dr1xer
  • jangaleon

    i expected more..oh well

  • guest

    where’s the kit kat ui like previous leak?

  • Cmmdr Keen

    sorry you’ve confused me, i personally use bluteooth sbh20 but i googled the mh1c and it has 3.5 headphone plug so why would it not work? are you asking if the mh1c will work with noise cancelling? that would be good i agree

  • Cmmdr Keen

    that’s not sony’s website, maybe the product code you mentioned above that you found on sony website was outdated or a mistake…EVERY blog says 801…

    either way it’s obviously NOT the 805 which i was personally hoping for

  • Yay!!

    Finally! The Prototype models Z and Z1 has paid off!

  • Diastianto Giga

    where’s kitkat ui like previous leak?

  • jangaleon


  • Mix
  • M.Allen

    S801 support eMMC5.0, but MSM8974AB only support eMMC4.5. Only MSM8974AC belong S801

  • Libyan Guy

    Nice & Great Upgrade , i just would loved to see 32GB internal storage !

  • David Lettinga

    Like it but I’ll be keeping my Z1 for a while

  • Ziich

    yes you have an sd slot but apps cannot be stored on the sd card. of it could then that would not be a problem for me. there should al least be an option to get more internal storage without losing micro sd card support. i would happily pay more for that

  • jake

    As request front dual speaker , more battery , smaller bezel larger screen , improved ram and chipset , ips screen .

  • Andrew

    guess with my Z, I’ll wait for Z3, Z4 or perharps Z5 next year.

  • ?????

    I want xperia 4.4 Kit Kat themes and wallpapers :/

  • marlowe

    What Samsung galaxy s5 is waterproof also, I thought it is only Sony who proudly markets a waterproof phone worldwide for a Flagship device. It just make sense who is cheaper when it comes to ideas or gimmick. What now samsung fanboys who is the best phone right now. No originality no sense of pride

  • Cmmdr Keen

    ok looks like you guys are right, why don’t the blogs update then and all giving wrong information even during handson? you guys have keen eyes, well done, that’s why i like reading comments

  • Deki

    I’m little disappointing with Z2, but I like the improvements.

    I was expecting to see better camera, better design, better everything.

    But, I like the way that Sony is going up with everything, so next year will surely come something really way better. I have my Z1 three months, cannot buy new phone right now – I’m still paying it! :-)

    All the best!

  • I like how the Z2 is indeed an improvement over the Z1, yet it doesn’t make the Z1 obsolete.

    If they would only release updates for both devices equally (must be perfectly possible due to similarity in specs, S801 is not much of an improvement over the S800 anyway), they can really show who’s best in the smartphone world.

  • hamody

    Xperia E1 and M2 have shake control and the flagship dont have it!what are doing sony?

  • jonyah

    Samsung usually has a waterproof version (active). That said, I’ll still take the Sony over Samsung. Sony’s quality is much better and they don’t destroy the OS with 99 annoying apps.

    Blazing fast performance

    We’ve matched the latest Sony software with the all-new,
    ultra-powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 801 processor. This advanced
    Quad-core processor is 75% faster than the S4 Pro and gives you maximum
    power and speed with outstanding battery time – run multiple apps
    simultaneously, surf the web with little loading time and stream videos
    without a break. The asynchronous processor makes sure that each core is
    powered independently. So you get the precise amount of power when you
    need it, without wasting power when you don’t.

    so you are saying they are lying by claiming that MSM8974AB is an 801? they said both on the same webpage…strange

    2) Will the Z2/M2 have wireless charging?

  • naeemh123

    I. WANT. ONE. NOW.

  • Xperia Z user

    Z2 has nothing to WOW me. Still want smaller bezel, OIS and the great audio chip. still wait until the xperia Z3.

  • Z1ZLIndia

    Where is KitKat for others :? :/

  • Bob

    Sorry, but you have no place here. The only thing you stupid samsung fanboys could complain about was bezels, and now look a ur crappy s5, it’s bigger than the z1!!! AND it’s not waterproof. AND it doesn’t have a 20 mp camera. AND it doesn’t have front facing stereo speakers. AND it’s made of cheap plastic that should be reserved for children’s toys. AND it has rubbish UI that lags up the phone, looks rubbish and has many useless gimmicks.

    Just face it, sony has done it right with the z2. I knew this moment would come, Sony are going to be the best and there’s nothing you haters can do to stop them.

    So, is S5 the winner?

  • Bob

    Oh I forgot to mention, the new triluminous with ips and live colour led completely SHITS on your stupid amoled crap, with all it’s over bright, over saturated bs that looks so bad it hurts your eyes. And to think these idiots bought samsungs for their screens…

    Haha.. I like the way you reply.. Many people like to ask this kind of question.. What is nexus for?

    ok.. it seems I’m gonna need some serious bribe for the Santa this time..
    bloody hell, I’m in love again <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

  • xperia_fanboy

    i am tempted to buy this phone. on second thought, i have reservations knowing that another iteration (Z3, anyone?) is upcoming in six months’ time. phones these days have a really short lifespan. o_O

  • ver jaina

    love the pic the Z2 on top a turntable…so classy :)

  • roeshak

    After watching a few hd video reviews especially the phone arena ones, I’ve been very impressed with the display. Truly stunning! The slim size bezels also help to solve the boxed in feeling of the Z1’s display. The aluminum frame too has been refined considerably producing a much more elegant look.
    The top and bottom bezels let it down though and will pose a problem for many. The size of the phone is its only major weakness. The S5 may have the 805 cpu and fingerprint scanner in its favour but the Z2 wins out in display and camera.
    Sony just really need to shrink the height of the phone down, they do that and they’ll have a runaway success on their hands.
    As it is now, the Z2 is a phone most will agree is fantastically built but it’s size will stop it becoming a true legend!

  • Mohammed Khired

    every thing is cool about it except the usb port cover….

    but i wonder : is the two covers solution was a mistake ?

  • lovebmw

    skip a generation then


    Guys,s5 has announced,and it’s a total Disappointment,, z2 is definitely much stronger than s5,,read comments on other webs and see how much people are frustrated and say z2 is the best,,now is Sony’s time,,cry for Sammy lovers

  • Mac

    Usb 3.0?
    IR blaster?
    Stereo speakers?

  • jonyah

    I completely agree with you IF Sony can get this phone in all the markets. They’ve done next nothing in the US. The news I’m waiting for is when it will be available over here and with who.

  • jonyah

    1. Ditto
    2. I wish, but doubt it. The dock connector on the side is nearly as good though. Docks for the Z1 are extremely cheap, so I’d expect them to be for this as well.

  • jonyah

    I haven’t seen a single site mention stereo speakers, but if you watch the video above, it shows it sitting on a dock with sound coming out from both ends (animated of course).

  • Timbo1

    from the current trend, maybe on T-mobile a month or two before the Z3 comes out.

  • azzido

    And what about anti-shatter film this time? Is this going to get scratches as well so easy as Z and Z1? Is the issue fixed? Is this oleophobic???

  • XP-Audio

    The noise canceling headphones uses 1 microphone per ear, placed on each earplug. It connects to the phone with a new 5-pole connector which are present on Z2 and T2, giving separate input to the phone from each ear, input which is analyzed and then mixed in with the normal output at appropriate levels in the opposite phase, cancelling most of the outside noise. You can choose different environments (such as office, train, etc) with different noise profiles.

  • XP-Audio

    Since it seems one feature has been a bit lost in all the excitement about our new Z2 and T2, I would like to fill in about the “Hi-res Audio over USB”. As you may know, we have supported USB audio since the Xperia Z and its family. However, this has been limited to the resolution and bitrate native to Android, 48kHz and 16 bits (what once was called “DAT” format). All other resolutions going into the Android audio framework are resampled to this level.
    What we have done in Z2 and T2 with “Hi-res audio…” is that we have bypassed the audio framework completely, and sends the audio data directly through the USB driver after it has been unpacked, without any kind of processing. We have also upgraded the FLAC codec to handle bitrates up to 192kHz, and we have upgraded the USB driver to handle Audio Class 2 and asynchronous mode (necessary to support sample rates higher than 96kHz). WAV files are also supported for Hi-Res, as are MP3 and AAC so you can mix different formats in your playlists without problems.
    What this means is that you can use our devices as media players connected to a stationary or portable DAC, connecting to your home stereo or headphones, getting the highest possible audio quality without undesired processing or risk of getting a ring signal at 100dB+.. If you need to be get notifications to the headphones when on the move, you can turn off “High-Res…” and your DAC will still work but at 48kHz/16 bits as before.
    We hope you will appreciate this new feature and regard it as an opportunity to explore the world of high-res downloads. It is part of the overall Sony Hi-Res initiative to bring excitement back into music. If you are interested, google “Sony Hi-Res” and go to the Sony site closest to your location, to read more about what high-res audio is, where you can get hi-res music, and about the new products from the Audio division.

  • Adjaero Pascal

    and this is why I’ll soon move over to Windows Phone. 32GB memory card, 24GB free space and I still have memory problems. WTF? because apps and their insanely large files can’t be moved to the sd card. Not the way to go

    Yes,if they release it in most parts of the world like Samsung,it’s sell would be so huge,not releasing in most parts is a real problem for Sony.

  • Gas_Huffer

    This time they’re even beating Samsung in raw specs. 3 GB RAM for Z2, 2GB for S5. Sorry Samsung, your decline starts now…

  • Colby Leong

    I kind of hoped of this phone being something like the Z1 Advanced, or some other type of lame upgraded version name(LTE-A). Looking at other manufacturers and how they improve upon their flagships Sony could have done more for a flagship POV, but from a upgraded POV they did really well. Honestly, the whole 6 month thing kind of irks me, I want to buy the Z3 or Z4, but knowing within a short 6 months its going to be “upgraded” annoys me.

  • Colby Leong

    For all we know this could somehow increase Sony’s sales in there Xperia line…and if not it’s a good thing that the VAIO is out of their hands so, hopefully, it won’t be too damaging…

    Excuse me sir, would you like a job?

    It really is the IP certification in the phones that make it bigger. However the S5 is slightly shorter, and at the same time offers a fingerprint scanner, Heart-rate monitor, and a IR Blaster. Something Sony should look into there next flagship…6 MONTHS FROM NOW!!!

    no im no po-liss, i disregard the constabulary, i just like helping people if i notice actual errors in language that arent just because of laziness or style. these days people use the excuse that their phone prediction is rubbish but i say it’s like blaming your calculator. i use bad grammar and spelling all the time but only because english is my bitch so i can allow her some freedom from time to time, but when i need to reign her in, i can. those who cant i try to help, so thanks for the offer, but you can go and open up a school somewhere to help the kids chief, i’ll donate

    If its for Sony to make a ”flagship” every six months i ll pass this time, i got a Z1 and all these features could have been capable for the device still Sony made a same version with minor h/w upgrades that could be implemented on Z1 at the 1st place.

    My XZ is now a year old, easily runs out battery on games, movies, and 4g connectivity. Finally this is a complete phone i ever want to have. Thaks to its behemoth battery life and processor.

    I think the next flagship(after 6mos) will be IGZO panel and Xenon-Led Flash.. I though the XZ2 has that rumored last year.. Am waiting for the release date in Ntt Docomo as Part of Spring-Summer 2014 collection. 32GB as Xperia z1(Japan and US version)

    For me the most exciting feature is the built in noise cancellation. I really miss it from when I used to have the Walkman NWZ-X1060, glad to see Sony have finally brought it to Xperia. Sadly, the Z2 is far too big for me, hopefully a ‘Z2 Compact’ is on the horizon.

    Doesn’t matter, had full HD lol.

  • josesl16

    Why does the Live Colour Led seem to sound like OLED to me… anyone can elaborate on the differences please?

    The Samsung is not Water proof It is splash resistant; Samsung advise that the S5 should not be submerged. It has IP67 Z2 has IP58. Samsung are playing games and not doing the engineering.

    Very interesting thing I just come across at – I could choose any number of pants and shirts (from the list) at very heavy discount rates (up to 75% off online) – more we buy more discount – I never seen this before.
