Sony Xperia Z2 vs HTC One: hands-on comparison (Video)

We just showed you how the new Xperia M2 from Sony looks in comparison to HTC’s midrange One Mini, but the M2 wasn’t the only new Xperia brought with it to the MWC this morning; we also got the Xperia Z2 flagship. Sensing the opportunity for a logical extension to that M2/One Mini comparison, we decided to whip out a trusty HTC One to see how that phone measures against the Z2.

Really, we’re looking at a lot of differences here; the screen resolutions may be the same, but after that things start going down their own respective paths. Arguably, the most significant point of departure between the two would be in the phones’ cameras – while the One has the oft-derided 4-megapixel UltraPixel setup, the Z2 has an impressive 20.7-megapixel sensor. Beyond that, the Z2’s got an extra gig of RAM, a much more modern SoC… it’s all enough to make the One start feeling insecure. Will it still hold its own against Sony’s latest effort? Watch on to get our reaction.
