As an electrical engineer I have to say: You should charge it before first use. 30 mins charge should be fine.


Well, it might be not so obvious for the battery in Z2, as it was manufactured not a long time ago, but it could end up in battery degradation, if the battery has been stored for a long period of time without usage.

Ok so with the Z2's being manufactured within the last month it probably isn't needed then

Well, it's hard to say. Precharging the phone won't hurt.

I charged my first z2 for half an hour, and my second one was up and getting flashed within ten mins. I actually found the second one to be better on battery. I do agree that if the phone has been sat dormant for a long while you should charge, but as these things have literally just been made it'll make zero difference.
