World's first Digital Noise Cancelling technology in a smartphone
Experience legendary sound, loud and clear. Sony’s Digital Noise Cancelling technology gives you the clearest, most immersive listening experience. Up to 98% of all ambient sound is reduced using Active noise control, a technique that removes the lower-frequency portions of the noise, preventing high-frequency noise from ever reaching your ears. Want uninterrupted entertainment? The MDR-NC31EM headset* effectively blocks out street noises and leaves you with your own, pure unadulterated sound. High-comfort fit earbuds let you enjoy your favourite tracks, videos and games undisturbed. This Digital Noise Cancelling headset samples surrounding noise through a microphone, and is compensated by the DNC circuit in the Xperia device. The resulting output is a full-range audio with deep bass, a strong medium register and clear highs - that’s music to your ears. (* Compatible headphones included. The Xperia Z2 features unique Digital Noise Cancelling (DNC) technology optimised for use with Sony DNC headphones (optional extra). Specifications verified by Strategy Analytics’ SpecTRAX service).
The world’s best camera and recording capability in a waterproof smartphone **
Take photos and videos like never before with the quality and performance of a digital camera. The Xperia Z2 has a 4K camcorder and a 20.7 MP camera, combined for the first time in a smartphone. More pixels. More sense. With a megapixel count of 20.7 and a mega sensor 30% larger than the standard smartphone, the Xperia Z2 Android phone is on a par with Sony's compact digital cameras - meaning super-crisp, ultra-sharp images. The Xperia Z2 combines 4K video capture with a large 1/2.3” 20.7 MP Exmor RS for mobile image sensor, Sony’s award-winning G Lens and the intelligent BIONZ for mobile image-processing engine. The results are images with a superior sharpness, clarity and brightness - every time. (** In compliance with IP55 and IP58, Xperia Z2 is protected against the ingress of dust and is waterproof. Provided that all ports and covers are firmly closed, the phone is (i) protected against low pressure jets of water from all practicable directions in compliance with IP 55; and/or (ii) can be kept under 1.50 metres of fresh water for up to 30 minutes in compliance with IP58).
Stunning shots in any light

Reduce picture noise while maintaining high resolution with a bright F2.0 Sony G Lens, high-sensitivity Exmor RS for mobile and BIONZ for mobile’s NR, pixel binning and by-pixel super resolution technologies. And with Superior Auto, it’s all taken care of - no fiddling with tricky settings.
Motion detection for blur-free images
Living in the fast lane? Just keep moving - the best camera phone keeps up, with pictures that always come out sharp. The bright F2.0 lens and high-sensitivity sensor mean you can take photos with a higher shutter speed.
