On paper, the Z1 and Z2 are not that far apart. However, improvements with the IPS display and camera’s auto mode are more than enough to justify the upgrade.
The Sony Xperia Z2 still isn’t perfect, however, as there are some minor software issues that need to be worked out with future firmware updates. There should also be a 32GB version, as apps are getting larger each day, and 16GB just won’t cut it for heavy app users.
These minor quibbles shouldn’t dissuade any potential buyers. The Sony Xperia Z2 is one of the best Android devices currently available, thanks to its excellent overall performance, beautiful design, and a camera that takes fantastic photos.
