The Xperia Z2 is Sony's third flagship Xperia phone release since the beginning of 2013. The headlining feature of the Xperia Z2 is a brand new 5.2-inch IPS LCD display that promises to go above and beyond the uninspired display choices Sony has dished up in the past. It’s complemented by a waterproof design, the same 20.7-megapixel camera we’ve praised before, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC to power it all.

Overall I really liked the Sony Xperia Z2, having been disappointed with previous models I was really pleasantly surprised with the Z2. Yes the launcher might be a bit iffy and yes the overall size of the device compared to the screen size is huge, but I...

Compared to the original Z Tablet the Z2 is thinner, lighter and more powerful but the price has stayed the same. I'm not sure you can ask for more. A larger battery wouldn't have gone amiss but would likely as not have had an impact on the size so I...
