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

The Xperia X2 is every inch a premium high-end smartphone. Performance is excellent, it has a high-quality 5.2-inch IPS screen and the 20.7-megapixel camera has some appealing features — all without compromising battery life.

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...

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...

Shipping with Android 4.4 ; Strong battery life ; Hardy, waterproof design

Doesn't offer anything you couldn't get in 2013 ; Screen is practically useless outdoors ; Camera software needs improvement ; Smaller would have been better

The leading Android phones of 2014 can be more easily distinguished by their flaws than by their advantages

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 review: Sleek luxury meets lightning performance


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...

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 Review


The Sony Xperia Z2 is an update to the Z1, and features a 20.7 million pixel 1/2.3 inch Exmor RS CMOS sensor. It includes an 8x digital zoom, along with a front facing 2.2 million pixel camera. Like the Z1, it has a 27mm f/2.0 Sony G lens. HD video...

Overall, the Sony Xperia Z2’s camera is very capable for a mobile phone camera with some obvious limitations. Although it is billed as having a compact like camera on board thanks to the larger than average (for a phone) sensor and Sony G lens, it’s...

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...
