Sony Xperia Z2 vs Samsung Galaxy S5 (Video)


What’s cooler than a Snapdragon 801-powered, 5-inch-plus, waterproof smartphone?

Another Snapdragon 801-powered, 5-inch-plus, waterproof smartphone.

That’s a poem by noted smartphone researcher Eesee Oveur Eyenot, and while it tells part of the Samsung/Sony drama of 2014, it sure doesn’t come close to painting the whole picture. The Xperia Z2 vs Galaxy S5 rivalry is a story of similar specs, yes – but it’s also a tale of dueling casings, design approaches, and even lifestyles. One device comes to the ring courtesy of a once-unstoppable juggernaut that’s recently let off on the gas somewhat, while the other represents another massive manufacturer not often heard from in the United States (which is fast becoming a shame).

From the glass-vs-plastic debate to the measurement of the megapixels, we cover as much as we possibly can in this observation-packed comparison. So join us for Xperia Z2 vs Galaxy S5; even if you’re not waffling between these particular options, you’ll get a slick preview of our forthcoming Xperia Z2 review. And if you just can’t wait and you’ve got to get your hands on either of these flagships right this minute, do what we did: visit GSM Nation and get hooked up!
