This device is the successor of the Xperia Z1 that made a buzz in the market, as it was a water resistant device with IP58 certification (Dust proof and water resistant) and has a 20.7 MP camera. Even the Xperia Z2 is IP58 certified as its successor and has the same camera in the back.

The Sony Xperia Z2 runs the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with four cores clocking at 2.3 GHz accompanied with 3 GB of RAM and Adreno 330 Graphics processing unit. These are some powerful specifications that will be consuming more battery that is a 3200 mAh Li-ion battery (non-removable).

We did a detailed battery test on this device and checked out the performance of the same.

Note – These tests are done with the maximum volume, brightness levels-medium, no-SIM card and few applications running in the background. Moreover there might be a few minute changes in the results that you get with your device and we are not responsible for the difference in results.
