Xperia Z2 is the Best Smartphone Yet From Sony

The Japanese tech company Sony has announced its newest flagship and best Android-powered smartphone to date, the Sony Xperia Z2. The company is introducing the Digital Noise Cancellation feature which is a first in a smartphone plus of course the Xperia marqee devices' signature, the waterproof and dust resistant technology are also found in here. The cameras in this new smartphone are I think the biggest selling point of this device, the display is upgraded too. Read on to find out more about the Xperia Z2 Smartphone from Sony.

A quick run down on the new Xperia smartphone. The smartphone offers 5.2-inch Full HD Triluminos IPS Display, 1920x1080 pixel resolution with Sony's Live Color LED which is also powered by X-Reality for mobile technology. A better display than the previous Xperia Zs. Under the 163g monster's hood are 2.3GHz Quad-core Qualcomm MSM8974AB processor with Andreno 330 graphics, 3GB RAM, Android 4.4 Kitkat, and a massive 3,200mAh battery. The internal storage is, out of the box, at 16GB but can be expanded via microSD card up to another 64GB. And of course the front and back camera lenses, a whopping 20.7 rear camera with Exmor Sensor technology and LED Flash. The front one gives users a 2.2MP Full HD camera.


 Like what I mentioned above, the cameras are like the main stars of the device which is aside from sporting bigger size in pixels, these snappers have features that are way better than competitions. For example the rear camera is capable of 4K video recording. 4K or Ultra HD for those who are uninitiated, is 4 times clearer than the normal full HD video quality, that means pixels would be around 3840x2160p.  One of the new additions to the camera's functionality is the TimeShift Video that captures at 120 frames per second which allows users to slow down a portion of a recorded video. There is also the Creative Effects, which offers a wide selection of effects both for video clips and images. Vine4 helps users to create a looping video for easy sharing.


The Digital Noise Cancellation feature works with a compatible Sony headphones and the action actually happens in the headset where the earpiece has built in sensor that detects and calculates outside noise, once the sensor identifies how strong o weak the noise is, it has a mechanism that counters that strength of the noise. For example if the noise is measures 8db, the headset will also produce 8db of sound to counter it making the listening a lot better than usual. In the device, users can select from three noise-cancelling prfiles, airplane, train/bus and office. The headphone is sold separately for about $80.

Sony has yet to announce the pricing and market availability of the Xperia Z2. Judging the specs and features I have found out about this device, to me this one is more appealing than the Samsung Galaxy S5 which was also announced at the same event in Spain. Let's just hope that the price would be a little bit affordable than its same level competitors in the wild.
