Product Description

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

Sony’s legendary camera technologies join forces to bring you detailed, bright shots - even in candlelight - using an evolution of Sony's image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor. 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. The BIONZ for mobile image-processing engine has Motion Detection - it chooses a higher shutter speed to capture blur-free images when your subject is moving.

4K - Ultra High Definition video recording

There’s beauty in the detail. Sony’s best camera phone, the Xperia Z2 lets you capture everything you see in brilliant, high-resolution 4K video. With four times the detail compared to Full HD 1080p image quality, your footage is delivered in Ultra High Definition, for unparalleled sharpness and authentic detail. This model supports 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution and playback on a 4K TV or projector using the latest MHL 3.0 connector.

Timeshift video brings the drama

Relive the action in glorious, slow-motion detail. Slow down the moment for a truly cinematic experience with Timeshift video. Shoot at 120 frames per second in HD 720p. Once you’re done recording, just select the best bits and play back each clip at quarter speed. Mark them on a graphical timeline and Timeshift video will do the rest.

The best of Sony’s TV display technology in a smartphone

A display so good you’ll feel like you’re there. The Xperia Z2 is built with the latest Sony TV display technologies optimised for mobile. Brand new Live Colour LED adds colour depth and gradation. And the IPS gives an excellent viewing angle and accurate colours from edge to edge. The large, high-resolution 5.2” Full HD TRILUMINOS Display for mobile with X-Reality for mobile picture engine has a 1920 x 1080 progressive scan, for incredibly crisp pictures free of jagged edges. Paired with a pixel density of 423 pixels per inch, you get pictures that are razor sharp and incredibly bright.

All in a waterproof, dust-resistant and lifeproof design

A premium design that looks good whatever life throws at it, the Sony Xperia Z2 has an impressive IP55/IP58 rating, which makes this slim and sleek smartphone both waterproof and resistant to even the tiniest dust particles. Swimming pool selfies, anyone? Take pictures with the world’s best camera phone while swimming in freshwater for up to 30 minutes. Feel free to dive up to 1.5m, as long as you remember to keep the micro USB port, SIM slot and the memory card slot covers closed tight.

The widest spectrum of colours

Life: Now available in glorious technicolour. The unique to Sony TRILUMINOS Display technology creates a rainbow of rich, natural colours. With Sony's BRAVIA TV expertise, hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, for a more vivid viewing experience and a heightened sense of depth. LEDs emit purer reds and greens, creating a brighter and more uniform light that captures the true colours of the source. From lush landscapes, to natural skin tones, view every detail in astonishingly authentic colour and breathtaking quality. Live Colour LED is a brand new technology integrated only into Sony devices, giving you the world’s deepest and most intense colours on a smartphone or tablet display. This new innovation combines red and green phosphor with blue LEDs and customised colour filters to produce a brighter and more uniform light - capturing true colours without the risk of oversaturation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Android phone I've owned 20 Jun 2014
By Comm_Q
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
For many years I have been a big fan of Sony products and had the original Sony Xperia Z. I bought the Sony Xperia Z2 mainly for the extended battery life it provides which is now 2 days and no charger!

The screen is fantastic and displays very vivid and vibrant colours, along with the larger 5.2" display. When running applications they open much faster and smooth. The phone is well built and nice to hold in the hand and feels solid. Sound output has also been improved along with the extra waterproofing the phone works really well in the shower.

I have over the years had many Android phones and I would highly recommend this phone to anyone who wants a phone for business and pleasure and isn't constantly worried by the remaining battery life.

Just had my Z2 a day, after delivery by Amazon on the 10 May.

Update on 22 May: I am experiencing an important problem with the phone. When I make calls, my voice is badly distorted when the other person trying to listen. Gets a lot better if I switch to speaker phone, but still not very good. At first I thought problem must be at the other end, but have tested on several calls to different phones and left voicemails that I have listened to and definitely seems to be a major fault. Other than that I think the phone is great, so will try to get a replacement from Amazon. Further update on 3/6/14: Amazon replaced the original Z2 without any hassle. I found the problem with my voice being distorted happened again though, with the new phone. I tried a different sim, reverting back to a Vodafone sim from the giffgaff (O2 network) I had moved to. This solved the problem, so looks like some kind of compatibility issue between the giffgaff sim and the Sony z2. The giffgaff sim doesn't cause any problems in my old Galaxy S3...

Phone meets my expectations and a bit of a step up from my old Galaxy S3.

Screen is great, with good viewing angles. Keyboard seems easier to use, though spell correction function does not seem to spot two words accidentally typed together without a space.

Seems very responsive and also quick to get to grips with.

Physical quality of the phone is way better than my old S3. I was a bit nervous of how ergonomic it would be, but I needn't have been. The tweaks done to shape and dimensions from the Z1 have done the trick, and in comparison it is much better to hold.

Put front screen protector on from 3rd party, as only one came in box and I wasn't lucky enough to get application right first time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome phone 24 May 2014
By B.T.125
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
To be honest when you get this phone, you possibly already know what you getting as it is not cheap. You thought it wouldn't surprised by it but I am definitely impressed by the phone. I brought this phone for the camera quality as I want to do some camera photography. Of course many would say Lumina 1020 is still the top phone for camera photography as it has 40 megapixel and some function such as cutting out moving object that xperia Z2 does not have. However one must always remind that Lumina 1020 is a window phone and it is so limited in comparison to android phone.

The camera feature Z2 have is impressive, from the slow motion video to AR effect. I was particularly impressed by the frame rate of the phone. It is so impressive when it compared to phone such as Nexus 5, it makes Nexus 5 frame rate quality feels sloppy (but one must remember Nexus 5 is a midrange camera phone). The amount of detail it captures is very detail, however in depth perception Nexus 5 is better as the HDR allows higher exposurer. I had fun using Z2 to capture photo as the lag time take one to two seconds. However some times I do have problem on focusing onto an object which is a minor annoyance. There are many choices of mode and within each mode there are a lot of flexibility when capturing an imagine.

Physically, the size is big and it is thicker than my previous samsung S3 phone. However the phone is not as noticeable as I expected when I put it in my jeans. But I would recommended you to take out your phone when sitting down as sometimes you do feel it gets in the way.

For those who like a bit of music the noise cancellation actually works relative well on the phone. This has been compared to Bose noise cancellation head set and the difference is not that great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb phone, without compromises 14 May 2014
By Luke K
Colour Name:Black

I have my Z2 for a month now, I got it from Three on a contract.

What I love about it:
* screen - crisp, vivid, reproducing colours properly, BIG
* speed - it is FAST, applications fly, scrolling is very smooth, games fly.
* camera - fast, sharp photos, properly saturated colours, good light metering
* video recording - very effective software image stabilisation, sharp
* battery - a monster, lasts for 2 days, gives freedom
* design - premium and classy look and feel, nice in touch
* UI - minimalistic, close to vanilla Android

What could be better:
* optical image stabilisation would be nice
* max audio output volume could be bit higher


* Camera

I own Canon 40D DSLR with excellent 17-55 2.8 lens and I'm a bit into
photography. Over years I've made a lot of photos with my 40D. I can tell
you the camera in Xperia Z2 is excellent, it's probably the best one in
a smartphone at the moment. It makes very well color and exposure
balanced photos.

White balance is especially good, I sometimes think it is better than my
few years old Canon 40D in that aspect. Whites are white grays are gray
and human skin looks very natural, you can count on it. Saturation is also very nice balanced,
it produces natural looking photos like DSLR cameras tend to do. Some point
and shoot cameras make oversaturated photos, which I personally dislike, but not Z2.

Noise is kept at low levels and details are very well reproduced. Autofocus is fast and
reliable. I expected this camera to be good, but it really blown my mind, it's fantastic.
You can sell all your point and shoot'ers right now.
