FYI, Sony was the first company to bring water resistance android Smart Phones in the market. So what are the improvements that Sony did in Xperia Z2 compare to last year’s flagship device Xperia Z1? Here is some list:
IPS LCD display: Finally Sony used the IPS LCD display on Sony Xperia Z2 for a better viewing angle.
Front-facing stereo speakers: Yes, you heard it right. Sony Xperia Z2 has front-facing stereo speakers. After HTC One M7 and HTC One M8, Sony Xperia Z2 is the only Smartphone in the market that has front-facing speakers. Though the speakers are not loud as HTC One M7 and One M8, it’s nice to have speakers on the front of the device than on back or bottom.
Battery Life: With Sony Xperia Z2, Sony proved that they can make devices with better battery life. With 3200 mAh non-removable battery, Sony Xperia Z2 gives 22 hrs of talk time, 11:30 hrs of web browsing, and 12 hrs of video playback.
Ultra HD (4k) video recording: If you like to shoot videos in 4k resolution than Sony Xperia Z2 can be your first choice. Though Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with Snapdragon chipset can also record video on 4k it’s really hard to find one in the market.
And last but not least the price. Though, Sony Xperia Z2 is not officially launched in Nepal yet. Some retailer shops are selling Sony Xperia Z2 from 75-80k. This is almost the same price as HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5. Now the question, Is it worth to buy? My answer is yes! Sony Xperia Z2 is an all-rounder. It looks and feels premium, it is water resistance so this summer you can take this in the Swimming pool and record underwater video in 4k, has a very good battery life, camera performance is better than HTC One M8, and almost same as Samsung Galaxy S5.
