The Sony Xperia Z2 is Sony’s follow-up to the Xperia Z1 and while the physical design hasn’t changed substantially the phone still boasts a significant improvement over the Z1. Like I said the phone keeps the same design language so it still has the aluminum-edge design, glass on front and back, full HD display, 20.7 MP camera, and is fully waterproof.
Instead of going on about whats the same in this new device lets talk about whats new and makes it an improvement over its predecessor. For starters it has a larger display at 5.2-inches, this larger display also comes with smaller bezels. The display is also the same resolution as the Z1 at 1920x1080p but the Z2’s screen is marginally bigger causing slightly lower pixel density that you will probably never notice but is worth mentioning. Also improved over the Z1 is the Z2’s faster 2.3GHz Qualcomm processor, 3GB of RAM, the latest version of Android (4.4 KitKat), and the ability to record 4K video.
As for pricing of the Z2 Sony has kept quite, we will be sure to let you guys know what that it when it becomes known but know that this is Sony’s flagship phone and will cost accordingly. Us being in the US shouldn’t really have to worry about pricing though because the Z1 never got a real US release and Sony has not said anything about the Z2 different in this respect.
Overall the Z2 is a great improvement in all of the important areas over the Z1 and thats a great move by Sony seeing as the Z1 was only released in September of last year. It’s also great to see this phone running KitKat with more of a stock Android look to its software, we can only hope that Sony keeps it as up to date as possible over the next year of this phones life so that it can really shine.
