Sony Xperia Z2 Review

The Sony Xperia Z2 is Sony’s latest offering which is released just six month later of Sony Xperia Z2.It’s the little brother of the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact just a few months ago. As Sony’s flagship Android Smartphone for 2014, it has to fight with the Smartphone like the Galaxy S5, the HTC One M8, LG G3 and the iPhone 5S.

The Sony Xperia Z2 is what you can only call a very iterative upgrade, and we have a little issues with the design and hardware. Yet, a strong screen, solid camera and great battery life make it a superior option for those on top-end contracts or with deep pockets.

Sony Xperia Z2 – Design

The Sony Xperia Z2 looks like exactly last year’s Xperia Z1. Its front and back has a flat layers of glass while the core of the phone is of aluminum and these three parts are joined with thin black plastic buffers. We believe that the phone has a better outlook – much more stylish – than the Galaxy S5, though it is not fairly as great a visual design as the HTC One M8/ the LG G3. The Xperia Z2 is water resistant and sealed-up having no removable back. The power button of the Xperia Z2 is really well-placed for the right-handers, placeing perfectly under most thumbs.

Sony Xperia Z2: Water Resistance

Water Resistance feature is one of the most notable feature of new Xperia Z2. The Xperia Z2 offers the best water resistance of all the latest top Android phones having A coated headphone jack along with the two rubber-sealed ports, help the phone receive its IP55 and IP58 certification.

Sony Xperia Z2: Speakers

Another key feature that you might not primarily notice is the set of stereo-front speakers which output from little near-invisible grilles situated on the very top and bottom of the Xperia Z2. Among them the top one sharing its home along with the multi-colour notification LED. Sony Xperia Z2 Having decent stereo separation, it is great for playing games and watching movies too, but the Xperia Z2 doesn’t include quite as beefy-sounding output like the HTC One M8.

Sony Xperia Z2: Screen and Display

The Sony Xperia Z2 has a creen of 5.2-inch s which is a bit bigger than the Xperia Z1, and both of its top competitors of this year, the One M8 and Galaxy S5. It has an LCD-type display, but presents a bunch of upgrades over last year’s model. Both of the phones are branded with Sony’s Triluminous display. Still, calibration believes that the Xperia Z2 offers better colour accuracy than the HTC One M8, along with better colour gradation giving a little more natural look to people’s faces while watching video.

Pixel density takes a bit hit this year, but it’s only as the Z2 has a larger screen than Xperia Z1 while having the same 1080p resolution. The Xperia Z2 still has a pretty good sharp screen. Its Contrast and viewing angles are better than both the Xperia Z1 and the HTC One M8.

Sony Xperia Z2 Sony Xperia Z2 – Software, Interface and Apps

The Xperia Z2 runs Android 4.4. It doesn’t experience all that much diverse to standard Android, as its approach has a lighter touch than HTC’s Sense or Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. Only a few top Android phones offer just the one browser, rather than multiple web-browsing apps. It provides Chrome which browsing experience is quiet great in most respects. The large of sharp screen is pretty good for reading web pages in addition the keyboard is certainly one of the most attractive laid-out Android keyboards in existence. The Xperia Z2 offers the Snapdragon 801 processor with the 2.3GHz variant whilst the S5 uses a slightly-faster 2.5GHz. The Xperia Z2 is one of the few phones to have 3GB of RAM.
