And, dude all the processors from Qualcomm since Snapdragon S3 are 64-bit capable.. But none of these devices got those drivers to support 64-bit capability.. Since Qualcomm itself are providing those drivers, they are using the marketing strategy to bring new processors with the name 64-bit processor.. U can pull the actual h/w info from the CPU itself.. (cat /proc/cpuinfo).. Try and see for yourself... You will see 46 or 64.. People are blinded by this..
Seriously..... They are not 64 bit.

Could be, indeed. Like with Z1 Compact. But, for now, only there...

If you don't have infinite stacks of money laying around, I seriously recommend you look at the Sony Xperia Z1.
The Z2 doesn't offer all that much more practicality than the Z1, and as I bought the Z1 just before the Z2 was released I don't regret my choice at all. It's super fast, has a great camera (essentially the same as the Z2 now that it has KitKat) and if I could choose a device again now, I'd still go for the Z1 over the Z2 for its pricetag.

Compared with the Xperia S, I even made a (surprisingly unpopular) video of it with annotations, where you can see the two devices side-by-side. If you want, you could check it out here:

I'd appreciate any extra view on that video anyway

Hi Herman thank you for your opinion. See why I'm thinking z2 is because 1) its free on my upgrade and 2) its a slight improvement over the z1 but I was thinking if not z2 which other phone could I choose

If it's (as good as) free and you couldn't pick a cheaper contract with the Z1, then obviously the Z2 is the better choice
My point was that off-contract it's so much cheaper than it's much of an improvement, so like I said if cash isn't an issue then it's still a great device over the Z1 (and definitely so over the Xperia S, you won't regret it)!
