Love it, camera and waterproofing are top quality
Camera is awesome i can set at 20mps and the effects like timeshift are fun, 60 frames in 1 shot, great for movement
accidentally dropped into 2mtrs water and mud, took them 20 minutes to find it, it was ok and still working, settings easy to change and not as invasive as others, i loved my Z! but it fell on highway and got run over, so i got the z2, awesome.

Good phone. Clear image. Great battery life.
After previously terrible experiences with a Samsung Galaxy S4, I went back to a Sony as I'd had one that was extremely reliable. So far, it's quick and the screen is nice. The battery life is really good (except for during gaming, but that's always really draining). I just hope it's as reliable as my old one, but only time will tell.
You should have stopped reinventing the wheel while it was going round
I have been loyal to Sony's flagship phones through several upgrades over the best part of a decade. Perhaps this is more for sentimental reasons, because I prioritise audio quality and remember the legendary Walkman, than justified by current competitive specs. Anyway, they've just lost me, and for a very, very stupid main reason (and a whole bunch of little ones).
CHARGING SOCKET: From the bliss of standardised charging sockets---and didn't we all sing praises for that one, after years and years of frustration trying to borrow the rig...ht kind of charger if we were caught unpowered away from personal cables---Sony has perplexingly taken it upon itself to invent a completely new one. My standard cables and charging devices that functioned across all devices ... no more. If I forget to pick up this esoteric cable when I leave the house, I'm screwed---or have to purchase more, and am I really about to do that considering the number of spares of actually USEFUL cables already hanging about my place? [HINT: No.] So you just lost me, Sony. Next upgrade, I'm out. Of all the idiotic retrograde steps, this one really has to take the biscuit and for sheer nuisance value trumps everything. CAMERA: No, wait, there's more. The standardised camera (my other priority, even higher than calls) software is poorly designed compared to its predecessors as well. On this one, it's easier to hit the wrong mode icon than it is to take a touch shot with one hand, which amounts to very uninspired placement for this user of larger-than-average hands. And picture quality is highly variable, with night shots grainier than I have come to expect from earlier iterations, and the software is more dumbed-down than before, so personalised settings take forever to find in its non-intuitive menu system and many seem to have vaporised altogether. RECEPTION: Oh yeah, and another thing: reception is poorer on this one. Like the rest of my fairly untech-savvy appraisal, this one is very scientifically tested: I have to avoid a particular part of one room in order to achieve a signal where it was not a problem previously.

Best phone i ever had
Soooo im a big sony fanboy, so there wasn't any chance that i will get another phone than this one. I used to have the xperia z3 before and i loved it also. The xz2 is kinda different. I personally dont like the shape (loved the sharp design of the old ones) and the fingerprint could have been on the side like the xz, but its still look great in his own way. Also a negative point is that the cameras are not as good as they were supposed to be. Sony always had an eye on their cameras ever since they made smartphones, but this one have a really p...oor camera for a sony smartphone (still good for a normal phone) So why i love this phone? Its just great on his inner technic, it has 6 gb ram and a enourmous processor. 64 gb intern data usage is pretty nice to have (the z3 had only 16) which was one of my main courses why i bought a new one. So the z3 was pretty smooth in itself but throughout the small captia i always had to delete stuff which was very annoying. But not anymore with the xz2. If you want to get a good phone, take this one
