Sony Xperia Z2

sonyxperiaz2When the Sony Xperia Z2 was announced, Sony made a point of telling us about touted a much-improved display and a pair of stereo front speakers that added to the already formidable list of specs that we saw from both the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z1 Compact last year.

The glass front and back might scare some but after a few months with the Xperia Z2 we can honestly say that the phone can stand up to the rigours of regular day-to-day use and even the occasional accidental fall onto the floor from a relatively mild height.

We’re glad to say that Sony has righted the ship when it comes to displays in its high-end smartphones from a quality perspective. The 5.2 inch Triluminous display is definitely one of the best we’ve ever seen with colours looking bright and vibrant something that had eluded previous Xperia Z smartphones.

As with the Xperia Z1 smartphones the 20.7 megapixel camera in the Xperia Z2 is capable of some of the most fantastic images. The standard setting will keep images down to a more manageable 8 megapixels but will use the extra data that the lens captures to correct errors and beautify the pictures it produces using oversampling.

If ever Sony had created a handset worthy of praise the Xperia Z2 is most definitely it. Every single high-end spec that could be in a modern smartphone is present in the Xperia Z2. It simply makes for a superb smartphone.
