    Well, that's not true. It only makes someone want a product sooner.

    I have been debating between the new HTC One and the Z2, but I love the HTC One front speakers. I saw this video. Oh. Z2. Take my money!

    Exactly. One was my favorite last year but Sony really stepped up with the Z2!

    I had mentioned that I'm looking to switch from my LG G2 primarily for the 4K video of the Sony. But to be honest, the sound from the mike when shooting video, may be the absolute worst I've ever heard. I just can't believe that Sony would release a phone that they're so highly touting for its video, and then have such unbelievably dismal sound. Take a look at the clip below (that has very nice video). It has the same weird, almost muted sound, that was heard on all the 4K clips from the Mobile show. It's not caused by the wind you hear in this clip, since it sounded much the same indoors at the show.

    I hope they fix this in the actual production model. I'm also wondering how this translates to making phone calls. If phone calls sound this bad, I'll have to drop this phone from consideration:

    Ken, make an individual post about your microphone concerns instead of posting in every post that mentions the z2

    Darigaaz12, I've mentioned it because I'm really hoping someone can come up with some idea as to its cause that will allay my fears. Nothing more, nothing less.

    I really want this phone badly and just want to be assured, that's all.

    I get it, I'm just saying you'll probably get more answers if there's a main thread on the topic. More likely to be seen

    Check out the stereo Mic add-on. Looks amazing.

    One of the accessories you can buy is a stereo microphone.

    What does he mean in that Android Authority review when he complains about the 'lip' to the phone's body. Is he saying the sides of the front face have raised edges (i.e. like on the galaxy s4, note 3) as opposed to the iPhone/nexus 4 which is flush all across?

    Didn't quite understand

    There's not so much a "lip" per se. The metal frame and glass front and back are flush, but because metal and glass have two very different textures, if you run your finger from the glass to the left or right-side metal frame, you will notice the abrupt change of materials (frictionless glass vs friction from the metal). Does that help at all?

    I'm normal use, I can't imagine you'd ever notice this. I didn't notice anything until I saw your post.
