  1. Price will be around 45 k. Because Samsung keep launching their Exynos jobs in India, this device may be the one with which Sony finally take over from Samsung as the Android leader in India. They offer waterproofing and much better audio quality. Only possible issue is with the battery performance which can be a little inconsistent and unreliable with Sony. If the battery performance is good here there will be no further questions to ask. Sony should also launch a device with a screen size between 5.5 to 6 inches and a 4000 mah battery but otherwise the same specs as the Z2 for about 5 k more to cement their dominance in the Indian market.

  2. The Z2 is definitely on!! I agree abt the pricing Aziz. Plus even if s5 does not come with exynos 502 Z2 will be the star of the day. What do you think abt the pricing of the handset Gogi? It could be above 40k easily.

  3. I hope Sony gets the price right in India. Am also keeping my eyes open for HTC Desire 610 and 816, these two phones seems to be mid range phones as are based on Snapdragon 400.

    Gogi, what do you think about HTC desire 610 and 816? I think they will sell like hot cakes if priced correctly.

  4. Motorola can launch dual sim mobile because they understand Indian market but SONY company understand whenever they not out from market like NOKIA.

  5. Sony need to Market this product well. Z2 seems like a much better Flagship than its competitors in India.

    If Samsung S5 comes in Exynos chip, then many will opt for Z2 .Z2 is only slighty larger and heavier than S5.

    The bezel size at top & bottom should be used for more screen space or should be reduced similar to LG G2. Sony should provide a dual sim variant.If Motorola can do it, then why not Sony?

    Lets hope Z2 will do well.

    1. The Z2 features a Stereo Speakers, the large bezel at top and bottom has been included so that a person’s thumb does not interfere with either the screen or the speakers while holding it to watch a movie. Z2 beats S5 in all 🙂
