Sony’s Xperia line of smarpthones have eveolved in features, size and there are now various versions that appeal to different users. We take a look at the Xperia Z2 and M2.
The Xperia Z2 is the pinnacle of Sony’s smartphone technology. It is replete with Sony exclusive technologies and this includes but is not limited to HDTV Bravia technology with the patented Triluminous technology, 4K video recording, Walkman audio technology and music playback, PlayStation certified games, amazing CyberShot camera and Exmor sensor technology.
That’s basically Sony, the consumer electronics giant, in the palm of your hand. They managed to squeeze in all this technology into a sleek steel and glass enclosure that’s also waterproofed, dust-resistance and quite the overachiever in the camera department with a whopping 20 million pixel sensor as well as the whole retinue of in-camera controls.
The Xperia Z2 may look a lot like its predecessor, and this is a good thing, but it improves on all the aspects that set Sony phones stand out. The changes are subtle but for fans of the Xperia Z1, will definitely be noticeable.
Water resistance is improved as the Z2 has the world’s best camera and camcorder in a waterproof smartphone, It can be kept under 1.5 metres of freshwater for up to 30 minutes.
Sony manages to do this without having to add a bunch of rubber stoppers to seal the water out. Sony’s approach is done so seamlessly that you at no point feel you’re using a rugged or water and dust-proof device.
My purple coloured demo unit feels solid and substantial in the hand. The melding of glass and aluminum on thissmartphone is precise to the nanometer and the result is a robust device that still manages to look and feel very impressive.
