'With decent hardware and a price tag of around ?300, it is a solid phone. '
'Video recording quality is bad.'

'the upper half of the rear of the phone became noticeably hot after just a few minutes of even ordinary use.'
'The aperture is of the G Lens camera is reasonably wide (f/2.0), which should also help the camera achieve good results in low-light conditions, as it lets more light reach the sensor.'
'Improved screen contrast and angles'
'The Xperia Z2 is packed with the latest wireless technology so you'll be sorted with dual-band Wi-Fi up to 11ac, Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX, NFC and 4G LTE are all on-board. '

'Uncomfortable in the hand.'
More manageable size and superior imaging skills
'Camera is sub-par, sorely lacking in detail.'
'One other pretty rubbish element of the screen is what it's made of.'
'You need to get around the 300ppi mark to get really good sharpness, and the Moto E does better the Xperia E1 despite its larger screen with 256ppi.'
'It’s not a terrible screen but – you guessed it – the Motorola Moto E offers a much better one. '
