Ok so this phone is pretty amazing and so far tests are great.
Photos look awesome,
under water photos are amazing
Software runs nice even the customization for the keyboard. music sounds nice and battery is very good
TEST FOR WATER PROOFING ISSUES
Phone works great under water however i now have moisture on the inside of the back camera, have called Sony and sending in for RMA.
Make sure you test the waterproofing feature if you don't you really could regret it later.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Philp004 Not perfect.
I purchased one and it's a very good phone, I was very enthousiast about the waterproof part because I work in brewery. However, a week after I got it, the tab over the charging slot began to open by itself in my pockets and ultimately, it got off the socket. I used to replace it as soon as I saw it got out, but eventually, I lost it and now have to buy this part again!
Also, even though I had a hardcase on it, it broke about a month and a half after the purchase. The screen cracked entirely.
I still love it though, but the little tab part? I would make a silicon one instead of a hard one so it's more reliable or even change the way to waterproof it.
It's the only 2 flaws I saw so far however. The phone is reliable and great! Marvelous power! Oh, maybe I would also make the ringtone louder. There is absolutely no phone on the market I can hear at my job when the pumps are running. I can't hear neither I can feel it vibrate in my pocket. Boosting these two would also make me very happy!

I don't understand where the screen cracking issues are coming from. There are some even saying the screen indents in when presses. ..... reading them over at other websites did made me sceptical wether to buy z2 or not, but I still did just because no other phone right now can competite with its specs and price range. I have already dropped my z2 twice, its still in perfect condition, its very well build phone. Idk if some of those neg reviews in other weB's are spams or what, but I can tell you z2 is solid. The only problems I have is heating when camera is on for longer than 15min , but this is the Snapdragon chip's problem. And the quality of picture just isn't very good when you face the sun, however face away from the sun pic quality is superb.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Timmeh Really great phone! but ...
I had enough of the iPhone and jumped ship, abandoning the entire 'apple ecosystem' to switch to the Xperia Z2. The Z2 is definitely the best phone, considering the incredible hardware specs, perfect ergonomics, really powerful camera and the main seller; it's waterproof! So I pre-ordered and paid in full with a full replacement warranty.
I have two gripes, one major one minor. The minor is the apps are constantly crashing, I suspect its Android related.
The major issues (and I mean very major) is how easily the screen and back scratch. I had read reviews stating that it was resistant to scratches, but not so.
I'm VERY disappointed that my shiny brand new phone is all scratched up. I will contact SONY and hope they will do something to help me out and will update this review with the outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Drocass Probably the best phone I've used thus far.
I'm a writer for an Android Blog, I won't spam with my URL. Over the course of my Android career I've owned 32 different Android phones, making the Z2 my 33rd. This has to been by far the best phone I've ever held in my hands.
The battery if phenomenal, Camera is what I call, "Stupidly smooth", and The speakers, though not as good as the HTC One, deliver amazing quality of sound.
Finally, an Android phone that focuses on Audio/Video, Camera, and sheer performance without countless bloatware apps seen on competitor Android devices. This Z2 is one that I'll be holding on to for a long while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fong Awsome Phone
Had this phone for about 2 months now and it's the best phone I've ever owned. Takes beautiful pictures and videos in 4K (Ultra HD). Popped a 64G Micro SD into it and have all the memory I need. The CPU is one of the fastest out there so everything runs super smooth. Screen is beatiful. Love this phone. Also it has connectivity with almost every frequency band if not all and works with every provider even the small ones like Wind, Mobiliciy, etc... My only complaint is I wish it had a removable battery so I can have a backup.
Sony really did a great job with this phone, I'm glad I took a chance on it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PhilP04 Worst purchase ever.
I bought a Sony Xperia Z2 thinking it looked cool and solid. It was waterproof and dustproof, all I ever needed. After not even 1 month, my screen broke down. I went back to the place I bought it and they fixed it (it took 3 weeks, were I was phoneless and it's my only phone!) I got it back and 3 months later?! Screen broke again, and this time under a protector and it rendered the touchpad completely unusable. Can I get it fixed? I was told it was not under warranty anymore and it would cost me 250$. 250$, half the price to change a screen that broke itself under a quality protector, from no abusive use and I am treated like I was nothing... wow... I'll never buy a sony phone again after this experience. thanks sony to ruin my experience with you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JoTO Pretty Nice
- really nice look, feel, build quality.
- great camera
- very good battery life
- pretty good speakers
- Slippery, slides off everything not completely level
- Keyboard is way too sensitive for text and email. Activates BEFORE finger touches screen. Have had a couple OS updates but no joy. Will need to open a ticket with support for this as it makes these apps almost unuseable. Also tried google keyboard but same problem.
