Xperia Z2 featuresSony has created a couple of videos detailing most of the new features that can be found within the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update in the Xperia Z2. The videos highlight, in particular, the extra functionality that Sony has added compared to vanilla Android software.

Sony covers a number of features in these videos including live wallpaper, media apps, ICE (In case of Emergency) contact information, new camera modes, local answering machine, Xperia Themes, Sketch and new Calendar/Email functionality. Sony also confirms that many of the features will also arrive on other Xperia handsets running Android 4.4.2 KitKat, which we have already seen in the Xperia Z1, Z Ultra and Z1 Compact.

    The lady glowing in blue, after applying the camera effect makes it look like something straight out of a horror movie.

    On Xperia phones you need to be happy for every software update because you won’t get them for long.
    Hope Google Play Edition will be released of the Z2 so i can flash the Google firmware

    All looks cool;) I will stick with my Z1 for now tho
    + i just got the ‘14.3.A.0.757’ update for my ‘Z1’ over the airwaves(or however you call it) :D (in the UK) which is odd because i am still on Android 4.3(‘14.2.A.0.290’) and didn’t get the ‘14.3.A.0.681’ KitKat version yet. I am guessing ‘14.3.A.0.757’ is the KitKat fix. Oh well i will find out once it’s downloaded;)

    Then you need to know that after you install kitkat, not everything else will work perfect as before :S

    I am personally bored as hell with Google firmware, particularly the camera app, it just plain sucks.

  • Giannikosmo

    Me too!.. that is one of the best KitKat feautures of Sony!!!…

  • Jeff Martinez

    They just updated it…its loads better!

  • rygarto

    Demand is high, but the biggest problem is component supply shortage, which may delay launch on some markets still by several months.. or until Z3 comes ;)

  • Ken

    Only singapore and taiwan if not mistaken

  • SteveH84

    Hello, just wondering will the z2 4G
    tablet be able to make/receive phone calls and txt messages out of the box ??

  • Xperia Z2 dove sei?

    It’s BS!! Of course demand is high if you’re only able to produce a few thousand devices due to shortages! Sony is really screwing it big time with this massive delay

    I hope the new upgrade will include tap to wake, nokia glance and turn to silent which I believe will become the future basic features of all phones.

  • adecvat
