Product Description

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.

Colour Name:Black
Took delivery on 10 May and gave 5 stars initially, but after 3m of use reducing to 4 stars.

The lost star is because the flap covering SIM and micro USB socket won't stay shut, mean the waterproof feature can't be trusted.

I rarely open the flap as have a cradle charger, but despite this the problem has arisen. I imagine that it will not be until a future model that the apparent design fault will be fixed.

That said, other than this flaw I love the phone, but the flaw is disappointing.

In case you experience call distortion : I experienced an important problem with the phone. When I made calls, my voice was badly distorted when the other person was trying to listen. It got a lot better if I switched to speaker phone, but still not very good. At first I thought problem must be at the other end, but ltested on several calls to different phones and left voicemails that I have listened to and definitely a major problem. Other than that I found the phone is great, so got replacement from Amazon. I found the problem with my voice being distorted happened again though, with the new phone. I therefore 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... If you experience thisvtypebof problem, it is worth trying a new Sim before returning the phone.

Overall review:

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

Screen is great, with good viewing angles.

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.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED WELL DONE SONY

5.0 out of 5 stars Best phone I've owned to date 13 May 2014
Colour Name:Black
I've had my Z2 for about 6 days now. I upgraded from the iPhone 5, and an upgrade it was indeed.

The screen is just about the right size: not overly big (such as devices like the Note 3) and not too small either, which is a fate I think hindered my experience with iPhones. The viewing angles on the screen are brilliant and the colours are vibrant and crisp. So far it's been responsive and easy to navigate.

The speakers are just as outstanding. They could be a tiny bit louder, but that's not really something I have any quibbles with. I've heard that this may be due to the phone being waterproof though, so I guess I can't really complain too much. The quality of the headphones they're supplied with are far better than anything I ever experienced with an iPhone.

Physically, the phone is definitely premium looking: far more than anything currently on the market. I haven't (and don't plan to) dropped the phone yet, but I do have some worries that it may smash quite easily due to being made of glass.

Software wise I'm relatively inexperienced with Android (I had an HTC Sensation back in 2011, so it's been a while), but I feel like it is a step up from iOS. That's just my personal preference though, but I much prefer being able to personalise my device. One thing that does bug me is that the keyboard doesn't pick up on some basic mistakes and mistyped words. I've downloaded a 3rd party keyboard though so it's no longer problem, but just a point to raise for the fast and reckless typers like myself.

I've played around with a few of the camera settings and so far I'm impressed with the quality of the images. There are a lot of inbuilt functions to play around with, and Sony has provided a great photo-editing program as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic phone 5 Sep 2014
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I upgraded from a Nexus 5 to the Xperia and I couldn't be happier. The Z2 just oozes class from the glass front and back to the brushed metal sides. It's Android KitKat with a sprinkling of Sony. It still looks and feels Android unlike Samsung devices which don't seem to bear any resemblance to an Android device these days. A nice feature is the ability to remove the Google search bar from the home screen which you can't do on the Nexus devices.

The reason for upgrading was to amalgamate my devices and store all my music on the phone. Boy was I in for a surprise.
The sound quality is superb. I was using a 4th gen iPod with AKG K495 noise cancelling headphones which I was happy with, but when I plugged the headphones into the Z2 I was amazed at the difference. The Z2 sounds a lot more open and natural. the only thing I don't like is it doesn't go very loud. I suspect it's the European directive for restricting volume levels that's driving this, but Apple have overcome it with their new iPods so hopefully Sony will to.

I initially didn't bother with the supplied earphones as they're generally crap, but I noticed the box said they were noise cancelling so I gave them a go. I was pleasantly surprised how good they sounded, but the noise cancelling didn't seem to make any difference. I initially thought it was a gimmick as there is no way Sony could fit the NC electronics into these earphones then I discovered it's the phone that performs the NC so I delved into the phone settings, turned on the NC and was blown away. These little earphones do a much better job of cancelling out the background noise than my £350 AKG's! They are so much better on the train and underground that the AKG's have now been resigned to home use.
