You could mistake the Xperia Z2 for the Z1 if you weren’t paying attention, but once you see the gray sides, you notice the bigger diagonal and the fact this model is actually light for how big it is, it’s clear this is something else. The product was unveiled at MWC 2014 early this year and it has finally arrived on our testing table.
This model launches about half a year after the Xperia Z1 and it’s priced at 600 quid in UK, 600 euros in Germany and 700 euros in France. We’re dealing with a waterproof cameraphone that’s resilient to dust and inside its box we find the usual charger, USB cable and manuals, plus a pair of headphones that seem overdeveloped for a phone. The grip of the smartphone has improved, thanks to a new texture of the sides and inside this model has some hardcore specs.
Those include 3 GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 801 2.3 GHz CPU, microSD card slot and all of that is crammed into a 8.2 mm thick body. It weighs 163 grams and also includes a microSIM card slot and a Triluminous LCD Full HD screen with a 5.2 inch diagonal. The battery inside this cameraphone is a 3200 mAh unit and at the back of the handset we fin the 20.7 megapixel camera, this time with 4K video capture.
I’m playing with the phone right now and I’ll be back with a full review.
