Hi,

Im looking at a new phone. Saw the new Z2 downstairs at work today, Very nice!

What one would a fellow geek choose?
Provide reason with a practical use for that reason.
JohnR Z2, NikT Z2 so far..

After giving my S4 to the mrs for a Z1... Z2 all the way.
No bloat, awesome battery, dock, waterproof.
The first 3 are easily explained, the 4th. I listen to music in the shower, work in the rain, take photos under water.

Z2 is a very nice handset and not much bloatware

They were giving them away this evening. There was a Michael Jackson theme. Someone won one for doing a very average moonwalk.
