Sony Xperia Z2 vs HTC One M8 (Video)


When two smartphone manufacturers vie for the attention of the same buyer segment, things can get pretty interesting – especially when they take the same broad path to do it.

This isn’t like our Xperia Z2 vs Galaxy S5 comparison, where huge design differences meant the Sony product was the only one actively trying for a “high end” look and feel. In the case of today’s face-off, both the One M8 and the Xperia Z2 have been designed specifically to appeal to those in the market for a “premium” smartphone – but HTC and Sony have taken completely different routes to achieve that luxury fit and finish.

Those routes include significant differences in audio performance, user interface, battery capacity, and one of the biggest gulfs in camera resolution we’ve ever seen. Add to that a wide gulf in marketing and availability, and you’ve got a formula for a heckuva showdown! So check out our detailed comparison of these flagship smartphones, stay tuned for our full Sony Xperia Z2 review coming soon, and be sure to visit the fine folks at GSM nation if you want an Xperia Z2 of your own!
