Is it really that big of a deal to put your sunglasses on your head for the ten seconds it takes to snap a picture?

Well my polarised rayban does work with the phone when it's in horizontal orientation. It's just quite dim, but it's not completely dark like the one on YouTube.

Hahah,maybe it's because i put the screen protector.
But I could watch it in landscape on my rayban polarized sunglasses.

Since the Z2 I received this week has a gap the size a credit card will fit into on the bottom left & both cameras are very off center I was going the exchange route but after noticing this today, no thanks. It's really a shame, maybe a future Xperia will be better though.

I found a review that mentions this issue on Pocket Lint: http://www.pocket-lint.com/review/12...eria-z2-review

FWIW I have read elsewhere that the HTC One M8 shares this same issue too.

The flaws you mentioned are present on almost all Z2's, so you aren't going to find one without flaws. Also if you are going to avoid a purchase of a phone strictly because you can't lift your glasses up for 3 seconds to snap a picture once or twice a month, then I wish you luck with your other life endevours lol From what I understand most phones with LCD's have polarized screens, so you may not be able to find one that doesn't have it. The Z2 is a great phone I wouldn't consider anything else.

Z2 is probably polarised for sunlight legibility. My tablet Z is also polarised in the opposite plane.
