Camera Sony Xperia Z2 vs Samsung Galaxy S5 Video & Audio Comparison

Saw this on Youtube today:


This only concerns video/audio recording at 4K and 1080p.
Thought some of you might be interested.
Phone: Nexus 5

The S5 does seem to have an upper hand on the front-facing camera, and in-door white balance is better.

The S5 video image is a lot sharper and more detailed with very vibrant colors. Whether those colors are more accurate or not I don't know, but it does look better in my opinion. Autofocus on the Z2 seems to be very good. The Z2 overheating after just a few minutes of 4K recording is slightly worrying, though. Makes 4K recording a bit of a useless gimmick on that phone. And, yes, lack of 4K displays and all that; it's still a prominent feature on that phone and should work properly.
Lay down your soul to the Gods rock n roll!

I own both and am seeing the same results. The 4K overheating on Z2 s a PITA. S5 16Mpx shots in good light are also better than Z2 8Mpx Superior Auto shots (which is how I and 99% of users will take shots). In bad light both are pretty terrible.

Really torn... need to return or sell one of them soon.

Let's be honest guys. Samsung galaxy s5 beats z2 in anyway. Pictures are a lot sharper and more colorful. Audio quality is better in my opinion I believe in his opinion too cos he was using s5 audio most of the time.

Sony is advertising this phone for 4k video recording but it over heats and shuts it after few minutes. That's not okay and acceptable.
