Hi guys I'm thinking about buying the Z2 as a new phone but I thought that it would be a good idea to ask around for any pros and cons (more specifically cons) of the Z2 compared to other phones! Thanks for your input! :)

Quad-core CPU:
Not only does it clock at 2.3GHz, it is even quad-core.
Very large display:
We're dealing with a hefty display here of at least 423ppi dots per inch (DPI)!
Very high-definition camera:
The Xperia Z2 is boasts and exceptional 20.7-megapixel camera. It also includes the following options: Geotagging, Burst mode, Image stabiliser, Object tracking, Red-eye reduction, Scene recognition, Send to web, Superior Auto, Sweep Panorama, Touch focus, Touch capture, White balance, Face detection.
Spectacular talk time:
If Sony's claim is accurate, the Xperia Z2 and its (3000mAh) battery will provide 1140 minutes of conversation, a lot of talk time!


Apparently no HDMI connector:
It is all very well that the Sony Xperia Z2 can record fancy 1920 x 1080 clips, but we're surprised we didn't find any sign of the Xperia Z2 sporting an HDMI port (which comes in handy to watch HD videos on your shiny HDTV without having to move them first to your computer).
Plumpy phone:
At 158 grams of weight, the Xperia Z2 will be significantly uncomfortable to carry.

you can use an MHL cable to connect to HDTV

GUIDE: How to hookup your Sony Xperia with your HDTV.

So you've got your Sony Xperia smartphone or tablet which you use for gaming and streaming HD video, but now you want to hook it up to your big screen TV. That's not a problem because Sony have made it very simple to hookup your Sony Xperia mobile device to a HDTV.

Our simple guide should be all you need to transfer your mobile experience into a fully-fledged home entertainment solution, so you can play your favourite games and stream HD content to your television.
What you need:

Sony Xperia mobile device with MHL support (* See below for list of devices)
Sony Universal MHL to HDMI Adapter (Available to buy from Amazon)
The wall-charger and micro-USB cable that came with your device
TV with HDMI-input

*Sony Xperia devices that support MHL: Xperia A, , Xperia GX, , Xperia SP, Xperia SX, Xperia T, Xperia TL, Xperia TX, Xperia UL, Xperia V, Xperia Z, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z1 Compact, Xperia Z1 f, Xperia Z1S, Xperia Z Ultra , Xperia Tablet Z, , Xperia Z2 Tablet, , Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR
What to do next?

After you've got everything required it's pretty simple to hookup your Sony smartphone or tablet to your TV. Just follow these simple steps:

Plug in your wall-charger
Connect one-end of the micro-USB cable into the wall charger and the other into the Sony MHL to HDMI Adapter (pictured below).
Connect one end of the HDMI cable to the Sony MHL to HDMI Adapter and the other end into the HDMI port on your TV
Connect the micro-USB coming from the Sony MHL to HDMI Adapter into your Sony Xperia device.
Change the TV to the correct HDMI-input and turn your on your Sony Xperia device (if it isn't already turned on)
You should now see your Sony Xperia mirrored on your TV

Sony IM750 MHL Adapter
Important things you should know.

When connected your Sony device will charge. However, the display on your Sony Xperia device will remain turned-on, so you might want to turn down the display brightness to maximise charging.
You can adjust the TV boundaries using the MHL Settings menu that will appear in your notifications bar which appears when connected.

VERY IMPORTANT: By default a number of Sony Xperia devices output to the display at 1080p at 30hz, which makes it feel laggy and unresponsive when gaming. However, that can be resolved by following the steps below to switch to 720p at 60hz.

Open the dialer on your device and enter *#*#7378423#*#* (Note: The numbers spell out SERVICE)
Select 'Service Tests'
Select 'TV-Out Tests'
Select 'Video format'
Choose '1280*720p * 60'
Unplug and re-insert the micro-USB cable connected to your Sony Xperia device

12 hour/at least 11 hour vedio playback


charging flap might get damaged(no water proof)
