The new feature is the camera has capability of capturing 4K video.
The Xperia Z2 is physically very similar to its predecessor. It has the aluminium band running around the edge, that not only makes it look like a luxury and makes it comfortable to hold.
It has glass front and back which looks cool. It does of course make it rather more susceptible to scratches from keys in your pocket, so if you want to keep it looking pristine, you should pop it in a case. Like its siblings, the Z2 is completely waterproof which allows you to submerse up to 1 metre (3.3 feet) under water for 30 minutes.
The same resolution display which Z1 has is same out here for Z2, a 5.2-inch display of 1920×1080 pixel resolution. The screen has a slightly lower ppi. Sony reckons the display uses the same ‘Triluminous’ technology from its Bravia TVs, which makes it more stunning.
