Samsung Galaxy S5 VS Sony Xperia Z2

Samsung or Sony?

When 2014 MWC just began in the first day, many people had began talking about the two new "titans" in 2014 Android smart-phone market.Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2 undoubtedly are the center of storm. And both of the high-end Android phone have been deliveried to the sales channel in all around the world. You may be wondering which phone is better. OK, let have a VS between Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2.

samsung galaxy s5 vs sony xperia z2

Hey,are you focusing on the style?

Well, I want to say something firstly, there are no much big change of style in both of the two phones. We just can find some optimizations in details. Let's have a look to Samsung Galaxy S5. Because of the famours and the marketing hullabaloo, there are many rumors about the design of S5. Metal shell, water-proof, or other fantastic ideas. However, after release, many rumors have been proved that they are just guess.

The design of Samsung Galaxy S5 isn't much more different from the former flag-ships such as S4, S3 in Galaxy series. But we can learn from the specs that ,the size of Samsung Galaxy S5 become bigger and tinner. And, I don't know why Samsung make the rear of the shell have many holes, anti-skid? Anyway,I think Samsung have been addicted to this kind of design.

Samsung Galaxy S5 is slightly larger to accommodate a bigger battery cell and a screen which has expanded from 5-inches to 5.1-inches. And the coners seem to be harder than S4. The material of the shell is still plastic.

A key change is not a particularly visible one, unless you look at the microUSB port in the phone’s base, in which case you’ll notice it’s covered – that’s because the Galaxy S5 has IP67 water and dust resistance.

On the competitor's hand, Sony Xperia Z2 is also similar with its brother-Sony Xperia Z1. This is not a surprise, because of there is no rumors said Sony will re-design its Xperia gadget, even in the guides of One-Sony plan, this kind of design will continute.

In my opnion, Sony Xperia Z2 looks more beautiful than Galaxy S5 in design. At least, it is more elegant. Sony Xperia Z2 is featured with aluminium surround as Sony xperia Z1, and you can see it is slightly contoured corners and edge. On the whole, Z2 seems to be a optimized version of Z1, more thinner, longer but not bigger. Front and back panels are still both reinforced Dragontrail glass which means it should survive the occasional drop. Xperia Z2 still have 3-proof features, and the speakers have moved to the bottom. Which I love in this gadget is the glass design, it make me feel it is elegant in first glance, however, the glass design is also a fingerprint collecter.

Diplay screen-both are the best

Samsung Galaxy S5 is featured a 5.1 inch Super AMOLED screen with a full HD 1080p resolution at 430 pixels-per-inch (ppi). It is the standard specs of disoplay in Galaxy series high-end products. There is no doubt that, users can have a good experience in display of Samsung Galaxy S5.

Xperia Z2's screen is a bit bigger than S5 with a 5.2 inch made by IPS tech. Yes, you are not wrong, Sony finally use IPS screen for their own product. Of course, this IPS srceen is full HD 1080p setup (424ppi). With the help of software, you also can enjoy watching on this gadeget.

CPU, storage and battery

As the high-end products, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2 also have the best CPU and storage specs. They use the same model of processor-Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 801 quad-core (Krait 400), but some configurations are different. Galaxy S5 has the MSM8974-AC model with a 2.5GHz clockspeed, a tweaked GPU and 2GB of RAM, while the Xperia Z2 has a MSM8974-AB at 2.3GHz with 3GB of RAM. The powerful processor certainly can support many function and smoothness in the phone, but how about the whole experience are also based on the OS optimization.

In the case of storage, Sony’s stuck to the same 16GB of onboard storage with microSD support for cards up to 64GB – a sensible move as this is a nice combo. Samsung is offering 16GB and 32GB variants of the Galaxy S5, although we don’t yet know about availability of the 32GB model in the UK.In fact, 128GB Micro-SD card is availible now, but none of the Android phone can support this new tech now. I think it is good when a phone which can use 128GB Micro-SD card. Some UI such as TouchWiz in S5 have shared 7GB.

The Xperia Z2’s battery has been improved to 3,200mAh from the Z1’s 3,000mAh, which should provide plenty of juice, but still being unremovable.However, Samsung’s Galaxy S5 keep the feature of a removable cell, which is handy for hot-swaps. It’s been bumped up to 2,800mAh putting it nice and close to that 3,000mAh figure which seems to just about give a couple of days of use on one charge to most handsets fortunate enough to have these larger cells.

Camera configuration and other hardwares

4K HD video is the main stream in movable digital gadget now. Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2 have the 4K video capture.

Samsung Galaxy S5 is packed a 16-megapixel sensor with an f/2.2 aperture, LED flash. What is really cool additions are a Live HDR mode which lets your preview what a captured image will look like with HDR changes, and a Selective Focus which lets you re-select the focal point on an image after capture (Lytro style), and a 0.3-second focus speed for rapid multi-shot capture.

The Sony Xperia Z2’s camera is much the same as its predecessor with a 20.7-megapixel Exmor RS sensor, Sony G-Lens, f/2.0 aperture, LED flash and BIONZ image processor, but now it’s been improved with 4K video recording and a slow-motion capture mode.

In connectivity, both of them will support 4G LTE and 3G HSPA+ mobile data, dual-band Wi-Fi (with Hotspot and Wi-Fi Direct), DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and MHL TV-Out.

Here, we need to pay more attention to Samsung Galaxy S5, which feature the fingerprint scanner under the Home key which can be used to unlock the phone and used for payments in conjunction with PayPal services. The full extent of these payment capabilities isn't yet known, but if PayPal is onboard expect to be able to buy quite a lot of stuff with your phone in the coming months.At the same time, on the back, there is sesor that use for built-in S-Health app which can monitor your heart rate if you’re trying to keep fit.

samsung galaxy s5 data recovery


I think there is unnecessary to talk more about the software in both of the phone. Android 4.4 Kikat must be the stardard OS in new flag-ship Android phone.The surprise is Samsung and Sony both re-design the UI based on Android 4.4 Kitkat. With the help of Android 4.4 Kitkat's improvement, TouchWiz UI and Xperia UI can make their notification bar transparent. Fonts and icons here are now a brighter white rather than grey and there are new, cleaner type fonts too. Sony seems give up something in this UI improvement, it make th UI become more Android.

Finally, you can choose your favourite.

You can see many ads or promotion infos before Samsung Galaxy S5, so you may think Samsung must be better than Sony. However, it is hard to say which is better, because they may targetto different segmentation markets. And you also pay more attention in some features. Therefore, which one you prefer to? I think you can try to use it in the store and know more info on the web!


Don't want to lost data from Samsung Galaxy phone as Lebron James?

The best basketball player may need the best Smart-phone

It is so funny! Yesterday, the famour NBA player-Lebron James(it is my idol,cool!)blamed his Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in Twitter, he said, he didn't want to use Samsung Galaxy phone any more, all of data in his phone were gone, which make me sickest. The reason for I said it is funny is that King James have been as the endorser since it released the Galaxy Note II, and James have many commercials for Samsung. Thus, after a while, he deleted this twitters, but his fans have been retwit to all around the world. In fact, there is chance to recover data from Samsung Galaxy phone for Lebron.

What can cause Samsung Galaxy phone Data lose

* Accidental formatting of media

* Accidental deletion of picture(s)

* Misuse of memory cards

* Corruption in storage device or computer’s disk drive

* Usage of memory drives in a number of computers

I don't know why Lebron's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 erased all the things after rebooting. As for me, I won't use the phone any more if I want to do Samsung Galaxy Note 3 data recovery,because erasing, deletion or formatting don't mean wipping data immediately.

Those data such as contacts, text messages, photos and videos,etc are just invisible in the phone memory. If we keep using the phone after data loss, those invisible data may be overwritten by new data generated during using.

And it can allow users backup their phone data to computer. Such as photos, contacts number, text messages, etc. Unfortunately, you lost data from Samsung Galaxy phone, you can use it to restore lost data.

Manner 2: Use the 3rd-party software to recover data from Samsung Galaxy without backup

This is an inevitable but useful way. As we knew before learning the ways of Android deleted files, deleted files won’t be erased immediately until new data overwrite it. Thus, we need to make use of this gap to find out and retrieve deleted data from Samsung Galaxy.

Preview for Samsung Galaxy S5

2014 MWC (Mobile World Congress ) is coming, most digital products manufacturers will release their new products of mobile devices in this year. There is no doubt that, Samsung, as the leader in the market of mobile devices products, must be one of the most sharp star in MWC. It is report that, in 2014 MWC, Samsung will bring the new flag-ship Android phone- Samsung Galaxy S5!!! So far, the former flag-ship phone of Samsung- Samsung Galaxy S4 is still one of the most powerful Android phone. As there are many new techs in Samsung Galaxy S4, what can we expect in Samsung Galaxy S5? Let's have a preview for Samsung Galaxy S5 based on some reports and rumors.

The most powerful core- 64-bit CPU?

In every release of Samsung Galaxy products, we can see many revolutionary techs in a new gadget. A powerful core of Android phone is very important, we can learn from news that, Samsung Galaxy S5 wil have a 64-bit CPU, which make it become the first Android phone with 64-bit CPU. It must be the biggest competitor for iPhone 5S that have a 64-bit A7 core. howecver, this news haven't beeb confirmed, the newest news reported that Samsung Galaxy S5 benchmarks point to a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked to 2.5GHz - higher than its counterparts in existing superphones like the LG G2 and Google Nexus 5. And a Exynos 6 CPU version is aslo possible.

No plastic any more?

In fact, many Android fans are very tired of the same design and the plastic appearance in every Samsung Galaxy series phone. After Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release, we can see Samsung have seemed to listen the opinions of users, a new manual leather rear is amazing for most people. Based on the rumors. Samsung Galaxy S5 will have a metal body instead of plastic, Although we don't think all the body of the phone will be made of metal, the material of the body must be very different from its older brothers. From the releasing picture, the appearance of Samsung Galaxy S5 have many differnences.

It will be water-proof and dust-proof

Even if Samsung Galaxy series phone is the leader in Android phone market, they have few any 3-proof products so far, except for Samsung Galaxy S4 Active. This situation may be broken after Samsung Galaxy S5 release. To satisfy user's demand, Samsung Galayxy may have water-proof and dust-proof features. IF this news is true, I think the standard of water-proof and dust-proof will be the highest. However, the official haven't give the specific answers for these rumors.

New UI with Android 4.4 Kitkat or Tizen

As the new flag-ship with powerful specs, Samsung Galaxy S5 will come with Android 4.4 Kitkat. However, some rumors said that, Samsung Galaxy S5 will have a version of Tizen, which is the new OS made by Samsung. Learned from the leak pictures for this new OS, Tizen is very similar with Android OS. In my opinion, it even is like the some Chinese Android phone UI, such as MIUI. Anyway, the performance of Android 4.4 Kitkat have been verified in Google Nexus 5, Samsung Galaxy S4 and other Android phone. We just wait for the new OS- Tizen.

2K screen, and 16MP camera?

Why Samsung become the leader in Android phone market? You can review every releases of Samsung Galaxy series products, all the new techs and higer specs will occur in Samsung Galaxy phone. Samsung Galaxy S5 is not the exception.Someone posted that Samsung Galaxy S5 will have an insane 2560x1440 2K HD screen.
