I'm keen on buying the Z2 but the main thing that puts me off is the feel of it in my hand. I tried holding it in a shop and it felt awkward to hold due to its quite hard and script edges. Does a case make it more comfortable to hold?

Also, have you found a case causes any overheating issues?

I'm using a Z2 with a Spigen case from Amazon, in my opinion it adds minimal bulk but the grip has increased and its edges do not dig into my hands like the naked phone can sometimes.

As for temperature, in my experience with the Z2 it only heats up during intensive processes, like video recording or heavy data usage. This case does not actively warm the phone.

I have a case, mine overheated when in about 25C outside. I was using the camera + 4k as well. The case is the official one, makes it easier to hold and feels safer in my hand!

i bought one of these mainly because I'm a clumsy bugger and haven't yet noticed any issues. TBF i only got it this morning but it looks good improves the feel, I to am struggling with the angularity and most importantly protects it.

Thanks for the info guys I think I'd definitely need a case for it, I drop phones too often!

I bought the official flip case and it is comfortable to hold. I also like that it folds into a stand. However the phone does heat up more than normally while in the case.

After using the case for a few days I quit using it regularly since I like the amazing high quality feel of the naked phone in the hand. Having no problems with it being slippery although I have fairly small hands for a guy who's 6 ft tall.

Another thing to note is that us lefties are never taken into consideration while producers design flip cases since they always open from the wrong side :S
