Sony Xperia Z2 officially announced

Sony has officially unveiled their new flagship and successor to the Xperia Z1 from last year – the 5.2-inch, 4K video-capable, Snapdragon 801 SoC-packing Xperia Z2.

The Sony Xperia Z2 improves on the strengths of its predecessor, the Xperia Z1. Although there are no drastic changes in terms of overall physical design, the internals were improved to make the almost perfect superphone.

The Z2 now packs a slightly larger display at 5.2-inch Full HD or equal to 424ppi. It still sports the Triluminos display with X-Reality for a wider color range and greater detail, but with the addition of what Sony calls Live Colour LED. It’s actually a new IPS panel that “uses red and green phosphor with blue LEDs and customised colour filters.” In a nutshell, the Xperia Z2′s display is much better, especially in the viewing angle part, compared to the Xperia Z1′s.

The camera gets a major boost as well. Although it sports the same 20.7 megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture, 1/2.3-type Exmor RS for mobile CMOS image sensor, G Lens, and BIONZ mobile image processor as the Z1, it is now capable of shooting videos at 4K resolution (3840×2160 pixels/30p) and has its own software-based image stabilization called SteadyShot.

The Z2 retains the dust-resistant and waterproof body with glass front and back. These are encased in a single aluminum frame with a now thinner body at 8.2mm compared to the 8.5mm Xperia Z1. Powering the device is a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core CPU with 4G LTE, Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with microSD card support, 3,200mAh battery, and Android 4.4 Kitkat.

    Calling Abuzalzal…

    Walang review sa Bezels! Whacha think about the bezelszz of this phone?

    See you bro!

    • a-bezel-zel says:

      busy pa un.

      masyadong madaming device na inanounnce sa mwc.

      nagbabasa-basa pa un para kunyare pag-comment nya alam nya ung device na tipong nakagamit na sya.

      and for sure, sinusukat pa isa isa mga bezel.

  2. balantoy says:

    spec/design wise, quite overkill.

    • Sexman says:

      Well, just about everything these days is overkill. Apart from playing games, everything we do on our phones can be handled by a 2-year old flagship like say, the S2.

  3. jacob says:

    Z1 @ 5″ display with 3000mAh = POOR BATTERY LIFE!

    expect
    Z2 @ 5.2″display with 3000mAh=even POORER BATTERY LIFE!

    SONY SHAME ON YOU!

    • Xperia says:

      Di mo alam ang stamina mode??!!

      Stamina mode is a feature in almost all sony devices to ensure that you can save battery.

    • atmaweapon says:

      if you know what you’re doing, Z1′s battery life can last for days on a single charge. with data always ON. clearly you don’t…or you don’t own one but has the nerve to say how bad it is.

    • jacob says:

      @Xperia

      huh? YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND?
      I HAD SONY Z1 AND STILL THE BATTERY IS VERY POOR!
      IM A HEAVY USER

      DI UMAABOT NG 5 HOURS SA BROWSING ANG Z1 KO. SAMANTALA ANG LG G2 NG KAPATID KO UMAABOT NG ALMOST 7 HOURS SA BROWSING!

      MAS MALAKI PA NGA ANG SCREEN NG LG G2 NIYA EH!

      KAYA BADTRIP AKO SA SONY!

    • jacob says:

      well , i think im goona get Galaxy s5.
      i like g pro2 kaso over size for me.

      matagal pa kasi ang G3.

      Hanggat di natuto ang Sony sa pag optimize ng battery di na muna ako babalik sa xperia phone.

      enough said!

      ty

    • atmaweapon says:

      you saying Sony is crap and then going for a Samsung…only an idiot would say that! owned an S3 and an S4…both the worst android experiences ever! only a Nexus would work for me until the Z1…

      G2 is a good phone except for the really bad software.used one and not so happy. if that improves, i wouldn’t think twice of getting one.

    • htconeuser says:

      3200mah is not bad at all for z2,
      sang-ayon ako kay jacob about z1, yung pinsan ko kasi
      naka z1 pinag compare namin vs my htc one
      with heavy usage, yung z1 5hrs lang tinagal nya samantalang yung htc one ko, 8:30mins yung tinagal. so mamasabi ko sablay talaga ang z1 pag dating sa battery management.

      but will see about the new z2.

    • dj says:

      Tama medyo sablay nga ang z1 compare to z. mas ok pa gamitin ang z kesa sa z1, im using my z for heavy surfing isang araw nmn tinatagal ng phone ko.. i think masmagiging ok yung next flagship ng SONY this coming Q3 of 2014.. just wait according to sony CEO may bago silang ilalabas na flagship phone by the end of 2014.. so 6 months lang ang trono ng z2 for this year..

    • JM says:

      @jacob, for heavy user g2. pero kung daily use lang sony, i have xperia Z, when screen is off and stamina mode is on matulog ka, after 8 hours ang bwas lang ay 1% sa battery try mo ibang smartphones umaabot ng 8-15% bwas sa battery overnight. kng text, fb and calls lang xperia Z will last longer compare to lg g2..
      you bet

    • markky says:

      i agree with jacob

      halos lahat na ng mga tech blogs worldwide reklamo nila yan sa sony xperia phones.

      top-3 na reklamo ng mga experts review sa sony xperias

      #1 washed out display(bad viweing angles)
      #2 poor battery life
      #3 low speaker
      #4 thick bezel( over size phone compare to other with even bigger screen size)

      those are FACT!

    • wifilito says:

      Di ko padin magets yung ibang tao kapag sinasabi nilang “bad viewing angles” bakit? kapag nagtetext ka ba or nagbabrowse ibang angle ang tingin mo?

      weird lang

    • SpiderWak says:

      @wifilito

      patago kasi dahil porn pinapanood..hahaha

    • meh says:

      FYI 3,200mAh ang battery not 3,000mAh itself. Get your facts right first before arguing something. Tsaka wait ka muna sa actual na reviews bago ka magsalita ng ganyan.

  5. awdog says:

    WOW Best Android phone At the moment.

    I hope S5 delivers (or maybe not based on the leaks at PhoneArena.)

    I can see a strong year for Sony, especially with a phone beast like the Z2.

    • markky says:

      sony sold only 47 millions phones for the whole year of 2013! poor sales.
      just ranked #9

      Z1 just after 6 months z2 agad?

      s5 is even better than z2, and g3 is just around the corner malapit na din kaya i doubt kung makaka porma pa ang Z2?

    • red says:

      @markky
      Yung 47 Million na ni laLang mo lang
      ehh 3rd most profitable mobile company ang Sony last year. i plus mo ang 4Billion every quater na nakukuha nila
      compare sa 3rd rank na LG which is 2.4 Billion lang ang kita every quater despite sa 12 Million units sold!!

    • dj says:

      Hahaha… G3… meron ng katapat yan this year.. Z3 according to SONY CEO… best phone construction pa rin ang SONY XPERIA Z..

  6. awdog says:

    youre ignorant. mag research ka muna bago ka makipag talo sakin.

    Z2 completely thumps S4s. Sorry wala kang alam

  7. jkt says:
