The Sony mobile company always tried to be unique and come out with devices, which stand out. They started out with a few devices, which didn’t cost much but had a premium interface and looks to die for. This was the inception of the Xperia series from Sony. The series offered epic phones like:
- Xperia X10 Mini
- Xperia Active
- Xperia Go
- Xperia Z
These are a few phones, which made the name and are the cornerstones for the Xperia series. Overtime the phones came out with feature, which were unheard of. The Xperia Active for instance was a waterproof and shatterproof phone. This is what the company promised and there are over a thousand videos on YouTube, to prove that the promise was for real. I mean the phone never gave way.
Hammering it, dropping it in water, throwing it, etc.; were starter experiments that miserably failed. In recent times the Active’s upgraded successor came out in the form of the Xperia Go with an IP rating of 67, which was then the highest on any phone all over the world. The latest addition was the Xperia Z series and this is a Sony’s Xperia Z2 review, which will tell you all about the latest offering from Sony.
What the Z2 brings to the table?
The Sony’s Xperia Z2 is a flagship model brought out by the company to compete with phones like the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One X and One X Plus. This device is also in the same price range as the competitors, if not a little higher as Sony as always was known for. But they almost always deliver a product justifying its price range. The UI is the main attraction that premium feel and smooth touch-screen experience delivers; is great. This Xperia Z2 review is not only about words, but number too. The following segment will tell you about the system configuration and other features of the Z2.
