It is a phone, after all, and call quality is terrific. I had no problem at all setting up Bluetooth phoning in my car, or in Bluetoothing to other devices (e.g., a Bose speaker) and a kanex keyboard). Texting with images works well (get the automatic downloaded APN settings for your carrier -- mine was AT&T), and e-mail is fast and easy to read.
This is an unlocked phone so it comes with virtually no bloatware. Since I backed-up my previous Android to google, all my music, videos, contacts and whatever were loaded automatically onto the phone. It took very little time to set it up with music, videos and photos loaded. I use a Sony 64 Gig SD card so total useable storage on the phone is about 75 Gig, more than an iPhone that costs a similar $850.
It came preloaded with a version of MS Office, but I was able to download MS Office 365 for free and to connect to Onedrive. Using Word, I actually performed real work editing a book I'm finishing.
Battery life seems more than adequate and with an SD card slot data storage is limited only by the number of cards you have. It is waterproof, and to protect it from the elements there are hatches over all the entry points -- data card, micro USB port, SIM port, etc. Only the earphone jack is uncovered and as understand it, that fact doesn't affect the waterproofing at all. Leave a hatch open and the phone will let you know on start-up. In lieu of closing and opening hatches I bought a Sony magnetic charger and I'm using Airdroid to load files onto the SD card.
Photographs are utterly brilliant, with natural coloring and very fine detail, better detail than I saw on a friend's Nokia, which claimed a 40 megapixel image.
I like the phone very much and have nothing negative to say about it at this point.
I ordered the phone from "Heavy Duty" in Evanston, Ill. I got it in two days. The service was unbelievably rapid and responsive.
One last thing, it does receive LTE on AT&T service.
1) Hardware design looks beautiful and, more importantly, feels sturdy and premium. I love the metal buttons, and I love where they are placed on the right side of the phone. The button presses are smooth and clean. I slightly, very slightly prefer the look of this phone over the HTC One M8. But that's subjective. Still, it looks and feels as or more premium than any other Android phone around.
2) The software skin is very clean and, overall, additions are useful. I would prefer stock Android, and actually probably prefer HTC's Sense software, but Sony has done a very good job here keeping things clean and effects sleek. There are a few Sony apps you can't uninstall, but they don't get in the way much. Overall, the phone is very close to stock Android, and the layout is more intuitive and requires fewer clicks than even the iPhone. And the beauty of Android is its easy customization, so you can always play with other launchers if you dislike the Sony skin.
3) The screen is beautiful. I almost bought the LG G3 for its ridiculously sharp screen, but in person couldn't tell a difference in sharpness from a 1080p phone. The Z2's colors are lovely and the screen is bright and responsive. I like the feel more than the AMOLED on my Wife's S5, though this is a matter of preference. Basically, the colors for this phone are more accurate but less vivid than on an AMOLED, in my opinion.
4) The camera produces some excellent still images, and the physical shutter button with half-press focus is a really awesome part of the experience. The camera is better for portraits than quick snaps, especially since you need to use the manual mode for high resolutions (automatic is limited to 8 MP). I actually like the modes and software on the camera app, which isn't usually the case in Android skins. Some modes are gimmicky, but you can get a truly outstanding shot with this phone if you take the time to learn the camera. It does take more effort to use than the iPhone's camera, which produces more consistently good images for quick snaps. Colors are perhaps a little cool for my taste, but I post-process almost every image anyway so it's not a big deal to me personally. The timeshift mode is especially useful for pets, although it does NOT get along well with third party gallery apps. I don't do much video filming, but the videos I've taken thus far are good, though not mind-bogglingly so. Overall, this is a superb camera for those willing to learn how to use it.
5) Having a waterproof phone ROCKS. I love being able to clean my phone in the sink after, say, a greasy lunch. But the speakers don't do well when wet, so Netflix in the shower doesn't work. But I think I'll survive.
6) The noise-cancelling ability is actually a nice touch if you don't mind using the Sony headphones.
7) Charging pins means less fighting with USB plugs. If, that is, you don't use a case, or use the right case.
8) There's no lag, even during intensive usage. I never buy a phone just because of hardware specs (even though these are top notch, with the latest processor and 3 GB RAM) because they often don't interpret directly to smooth performance. The software usage on this phone is 100% smooth and instantaneous, and that's what matters.
1) Professional reviewers often mention that the Z2 is bulky and hard to hold. And it can be, a little, since the back isn't rounded, though I think reviewers have exaggerated this point. It's not really much more difficult than other larger phones, and easier than the Note 3 or even the 5.5" LG G3. Still, it's a hefty phone and if that bothers you a lot then look elsewhere.
2) The wifi and cellular connectivity hasn't been perfect. It's not bad, but I've had some slight issues with auto-connecting to saved networks a couple of times. Turning wifi off and on solved these issues. Also, as is a factor with any unlocked phone, it takes some minor setup before use. Luckily for AT&T users, the Amazon seller has included setup instructions for the network that worked immediately. (By the way, my phone from this seller has a T-Mobile logo screen as part of the start up process).
3) Waterproofing flap covers the USB port. But, like I mentioned, if you use the magnetic charging adapter (which connects to a micro usb head) then you don't have to open it to charge. And the flap is well designed and easily removed.
4) Third party accessories are somewhat limited in the US. Finding a good case has proven difficult.
Overall: Unless you can't stand a larger phone, or want an ultra-simple camera experience, I would recommend this phone highly. Whether it's the "best" Android phone is a matter of preference. But it is the best Android phone for me, given the priority I place on design, clean software, and still photography. My overall impression is that this is the flagship Android smartphone for people who really take pleasure in their phone.
