Samsung Galaxy S5 vs Sony Xperia Z2 Specs Comparison

With these two of the top phones now available in the markets, the ultimate question in the mind of a smartphone buyer is, which is the best? Samsung GS5 or Sony Xperia Z2. Below is the Samsung Galaxy S5 vs Sony Xperia Z2 specs comparison side by side, to help you find the answer:

Galaxy S5 vs Xperia Z2 Specs Comparison Chart
  • Samsung S5 vs Sony Z2 Build Quality Comparison
    Both of these smart phones are big and hefty, but Sony Xperia Z2 is about 20 grams heavier than the Samsung Galaxy S5. It’s bigger than the Galaxy SV as well but since it’s only a 0.04 inch wider, it’s as easy/difficult to hold as the Galaxy S5 depending upon the size of your hand and your smartphone history.

    But the build quality of Sony Xperia range has always been good and it’s only got better in the recent years. The glass at both ends and curved metal on the sides makes it feel and look exquisite. Whereas the Samsung Galaxy S5 still wears a plastic backplate. This new perforated plastic feels much better than the Samsung’s old faux leather plastic, and the shiny metal sides as the old galaxy phones feels nice. But Sony Xperia Z2 feels much more premium and well built, partly because of the shiny front and back and partly because of the much sturdier metallic sides.

    Sony Xperia Z2 is dust resistant and water proof as its predecessor. But Samsung has also introduced this feature which puts Galaxy SV right next to Xperia Z2. And both phones have similar form factors but the Samsung feels a bit more comfortable to hold because of more rounded edges.

    So Sony Xperia Z2 is a better looking and sturdier smart phone than the Galaxy S4 with a disadvantage of being the heavier of the two.

  • Galaxy S5 vs Xperia Z2 Display Screen Comparison
    When anyone brings up the names of Sony and Samsung in one sentence, you assume that it’s the televisions they’re talking about. In this Samsung vs. Sony comparison however, we are comparing the display screens of smart phones and it is a bit difficult since we haven’t yet held both of these smart phones side by side. And it seems even more difficult to do this once you realize that both Samsung and Sony both used a full HD display screen on devices of almost the same size. But bear with us since we have made use of the transitive property to decide what’s what.

    Sony has always been good with the color quality of display screens and because of the fact that Sony was flaunting its new Live Color LED technology during the MWC proceedings and it looks better than that of the display screen of its predecessor Xperia Z1.

    Samsung however didn’t seem too excited about the display screen, as Samsung Galaxy S5 still uses the same as the one used in Galaxy S4. And we know that the color quality of the display used in Xperia Z1 compact (Original Z1 display had some issues) was already better than that of the Galaxy S4, so it seems that Sony wins this age old Samsung vs Sony battle of the best display technology yet again.

  • Samsung Galaxy S5 vs Sony Xperia Z2 Camera Comparison
    Not only does the Sony Xperia Z2 has more mega pixels than the Galaxy S5, it even has a smaller (better) aperture number a bigger sensor size and has got the SteadyShot video stabilization technology. Both phones have 4K video making capability.

    But a few software features in Samsung Galaxy S5 are quite useful. The fast focus and the selective focus feature which allows you to select the objects to focus seem promising.

  • Galaxy S5 vs Sony Xperia Z2 Processor and RAM Comparison
    Both Phones are incredibly similar to each other on the inside. Both have a snapdragon 801 quad core processor and with the same adreno 330 GPU. Both phones even have the same amount of internal storage capacity of 16 GB. But Sony Xperia has a bigger RAM having 3 GB capacity in comparison to 2 GB of Samsung Galaxy S5, but Samsung’s external storage is expandable to a full 128 GB whereas Xperia supports 64 GB.

  • Samsung S5 vs Sony Xperia Z2 Battery Life Comparison
    Sony Xperia Z2 has a slightly bigger battery than the Galaxy SV. But you can remove the battery of Galaxy S5 by removing the backplate, which is not possible in case of Sony. Since Both phones have similar hardware, we can speculate that Xperia Z2 can provide you a better battery time. But the new power saving mode in Galaxy S5 is going to save you a lot of battery when activated. This power saving mode will convert it into a black and white display and will limit the number of apps running on phone.

Galaxy S5 vs Xperia Z2 Which is the Best Phone?

Well, its difficult to pick a winner between Galaxy S5 vs Xperia Z2, but not that difficult. If you check at the specification comparison chart, Sony Xperia Z2 seems have an edge in overall specs and does cost less than Samsung phone.

However, marketing is a seprate department, where Samsung is particularly better than Sony. They'll make their device sell better. If you also take resell value in to the whole picture, Samsung Galaxy phones always have better resale value compared to Sony Xperia phones.

So, we suggest that you feel free to go with the smartphone that best suits your needs and don't forget our comments section to share your thoughts :-)
