Verizon Sony Xperia Z2 and Z3v
13 February 2015
Conclusion: Now that we have broken down both the Xperia Z2 Tablet and the Z3v Phone I can finally step back and see what we have going on. For starters, the performance numbers for both devices were interesting. I expected the Z3v to outperform the Z2 Tablet but in a few situations, it didn’t. That said for the most part it does come in right below the Droid Turbo and MotoX 2014 with very respectable numbers.
Summary: After using the Xperia Z2 Tablet as my main tablet it is clear that this delivers an experience comparable to the iPad Air. There are still some apps that look better on the iPad Air, but overall I didn’t run into any major issues while switching to this tablet.
Sony Xperia Z2 Review: It Can Go Toe-to-Toe with All the Flagships
24 August 2014
Excerpt: The Unbox Review of the Sony Xperia Z2 Without a doubt the Sony Xperia Z2 is the best smartphone Sony has ever shipped. It’s a big step up from the Xperia Z1, mainly because of the better display and smoother over-all experience thanks to the bump up in specifications. The real question though is if the Xperia Z2 better than ...
Summary: Using the Sony Xperia Z2 has shown me that Sony is in a class of its own with Android-powered smartphones. Sure, everyone has a different opinion on what is great out there, but with so many overwhelmingly positive reviews on the two best-selling smartphones on the market - Samsung's Galaxy S5 and the iPhone 5S - there is plenty of room for another champion.
Summary: We’ve already taken a look at the LG G3 pitted against the Samsung Galaxy S5 , and now it’s time for another popular flagship to enter the ring against LG’s latest and greatest. Sony has followed a strategy of small steps over the past year or so, and has done so quite successfully. Building on what was a fantastic base with the Xperia Z , the Xperia Z1 had a lot to offer, with the Xperia Z2 taking things even further.
Conclusion: The phone that opened the season of flagship debuts and the one that makes it a full circle. If done right, a full circle in this business is a level up on an ascending spiral. It looks like LG did it right, to find themselves perched at the top in terms of screen resolution. Then again, Sony of course will tell you that a QHD screen can't buy you love. It's not who you trust. It's what you want in a phone.
Summary: It is no doubt that Sony has close to perfected the Xperia Z2, both in the design and hardware aspects. It is definitely gorgeous, plays well with other connected devices especially that of Sony, with a camera to be really proud of and the hardware performance to boot.
Summary: Sony ’s mobile evolution in the last 18 months, together with their experience in screen production with their television range, puts them in a really good position to produce quality hardware. After an unfortunate run of lackluster devices the company has rebuilt its reputation in the mobile space, starting with the Xperia Z at the beginning of 2013.
Pros: Lightweight and thin device, IP58 Water resistance, Long lasting battery
Cons: Access to charging port is awkward, Loaded with bloatware out of the box, Auto screen brightness lags when light conditions change
Summary: 2013 was a good year for Sony . After spending several years trying to get it right, the Xperia Z finally had people talking about them in the same breath as industry leaders like Samsung and HTC . The phone’s premium design with quality internals ensured popularity with power users, and it brought features like waterproof and dustproof into the mainstream – a feature on which Sony was genuinely ahead of the curve.
Pros: Best display we’ve seen in a Sony device, Super quick and responsive, Exclusive deals and content for Xperia owners
Cons: Button placement can be pretty frustrating, Size and shape makes the phone hard to hold, glass back is a worry, ”Superior Auto” camera mode is far from it
