The Sony Xperia Z2 Android Phone

Sony’s new flagship, the Xperia Z2, promises to be even better than its predecessor. It’s waterproof in freshwater for up to 5 feet and 30 minutes, has 4K video capability, and a gorgeous 5.2″ screen. I’ve had some hands-on time with one, and I love the glass body and build quality. Click through for more pics and a video walk-through.

You can see a full list of specifications here, but some of the high points include the image stabilized 20.7 megapixel rear camera, the 3000 mAh battery with up to 19 hours talk time, Google Android 4.4 (Kit Kat), a 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Quad-core processor, and did I mention that it was waterproof and dustproof? Slick!

I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
