Hands up

I really like my Z, especially the design. Improvements on Z2 are exactly what I wanted (screen, speaker, magnetic charger).

I also have Sharp SH-06E. The idea of waterproof without ear jack and microusb caps are what Xperia or other water proof phone makers should follow. Unfortunately, Japanese android phones sold in Japan are somehow annoying, for instance, most of them don't have EDGE or LTE, updating outside Japan is the real pain, less developers' toys.

I won't get it because it's only a little bit better than our Z. I like my Z so much because it's so cool.

Depends on how good the camera is.... I've come to realize I don't really need top of the line specs for the things I do and mobile games I play. If the camera has really good low light capabilities then I will most likely buy it. Everything else is a big welcome though... like the stereo speakers.

Same. There's too much real estate on the screen that goes wasted. And honestly the Z is still relatively fast, the camera still excellent, will be updated to the newest firmware. A brand spanking new chip to replace one that doesn't need upgrading yet doesn't warrant the upgrade imo. I'll wait for the Z2-x or something in 6 months which will hopefully have an actual new camera and maybe improvements on the inevitable flaws the Z2 will have.

Personally no, Reason being the size of the beast, The Z is a nice size, I can comfortably do most things with one hand
