Sony Xperia Z2 review: Brilliant display, familiar design, but not flawless

 

The Sony Xperia Z2 is the follow up to Sony's Xperia Z1 which debuted last year. Compared to the other flagships we've seen so far, the Z2 takes a more conservative approach as it's not radically different from the Z1, at least cosmetically. With a...

Sony has launched the Xperia Z2 at Rs 49,990. With this, they are also throwing in the SmartBand and a flip cover to sweeten the deal. While this is definitely a much better package than what the others are offering, we feel the price is bloated and...

Sony Xperia Z2 review

 

Sony has been fighting its way into the premium end of the smartphone market by updating its Xperia Z flagship phones every six months. The Z2 is a stylish, feature-packed device with plenty of raw power, but does it have what it takes to nudge LG and...

Very fast and powerful ; Gorgeous display ; Premium design ; Waterproof and dustproof ; MicroSD support ; Feature packed camera ; Front-facing stereo speakers ; Battery life

Fingerprint and dust magnet ; Big bezels above and below screen ; Not especially comfortable to hold ; 4K recording heats up ; Flaps on ports

The Xperia Z2 is Sony’s best release yet and shows how fast its smartphones are improving. This is a phone that can compete with anything on the market.

Sony Xperia Z2 review: Action pack

 

Quite a few people were getting impatient at one point but a Sony flagship is well worth waiting for. But then, wasn't it clear well before the impatience started to kick in that owners of the original Xperia Z had a lot more to look forward to than...

Sony Xperia Z2 review: Feature-laden and waterproof

 

Every inch the premium high-end smartphone, the Xperia Z2 delivers excellent performance, screen quality and camera resolution without compromising battery life. However, the abundance of third-party apps may confuse some users, and we noticed that the...

Very good battery life ; High-end specifications ; Waterproof and dust-resistant ; High-resolution camera

Suffers from software bloat ; Awkward ridge around the back edge ; Moderate audio quality from speakers ; Occasionally runs hot

Sony Xperia Z2

 

The Sony Xperia Z2 is a wonderfully light and thin Android tablet that packs a vivid display and plenty of battery life in a water-resistant package.

Super-thin and light; Bright and colorful display; Water resistant; Long battery life

Annoying port covers; Screen resolution trails competitors; Mediocre audio; Back picks up fingerprints

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is a great piece of hardware. The wonderfully light and thin chassis makes this tablet a pleasure to hold, and its rich, vivid screen is fantastic for watching that latest episode of "Game of Thrones." The fact that it's...

Sony Xperia Z2 review: a big, powerful slab of a phone

 

Huge, high-quality display, Rugged construction, Excellent processor and battery life, Shoots incredibly detailed stills

Unwieldy in the hand, Sony's Android skin gets in the way sometimes

The Xperia Z2 is a solid purchase and easily the most impressive Sony phone we've reviewed. It's strong in every major department, from the display through to the camera, battery life and waterproof build. In return, however, you'll need to offer up...

Sony Xperia Z2 ( black)

 

The Sony Xperia Z2 is the latest flagship super-phone from Sony, replacing the Xperia Z1 released last year. The new phone keeps the same aluminium-edged design, sexy glass front and back, Full HD display, quad-core processor and impressive...

The Sony Xperia Z2 has a glorious screen, tonnes of power, a great camera and a beautiful design. It's waterproof too, so it won't conk out when you drop it in the bath.

It's expensive, its regular autofocus adjustments during shooting can spoil videos, and the camera resolution is throttled when using the full automatic mode.

Sure, it costs a bundle, but the Sony Xperia Z2 is everything you should expect from a top-end phone. Its impressive performance rivals the Samsung Galaxy S5 for smartphone top dog, but the Z2's slick glass and metal design trumps the S5's plastic...

Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet review: One Sony, two devices

 

After years of extensive testing, I have determined the perfect screen size for watching YouTube videos in bed. It's just over 5 inches. Anything larger and you have to hold the device too far from that ideal chest-perching point, anything smaller and...

Stunning, minimalist design ; Display looks gorgeous indoors ; Nice stereo speakers ; Thinner and lighter than the iPad AIr, yet battery lasts just as long

Screen is practically useless on a sunny day ; Would benefit from a wider selection of tablet apps ; You can buy two Nexus 7s for the price

Android has its iPad Air, now it needs the iOS App Store

Sony Xperia Z2 Review

 

The time has come to see if Sony has gained enough momentum to challenge Samsung for the top. 5.2 inches of IPS screen, Snapdragon 801 processor, 20.7 MP camera, 3200 mAh battery, microSD card slot – it seems next to impossible to find a weak spot in...

Solid and eye-pleasing design ; Large and vibrant display ; Streamlined and polished user experience ; Quality camera

A bit bulky ; Slightly oversaturated screen ; Average speakers

In the end, the Sony Xperia Z2 managed to meet the great expectations we had for it. It's supposed to be Sony's no-compromise flagship Android smartphone, and more often than not, it proves it deserves that title.

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet Review from an iPad User

 

After using the Xperia Z2 Tablet as my main tablet it is clear that this delivers an experience comparable to the iPad Air. There are still some apps that look better on the iPad Air, but overall I didn't run into any major issues while switching to...
