Without any doubt both are great handsets. LG G2 Vs Sony Xperia Z specs battle of two flagship handsets makes great reading

More high-profile FullHD phones are heading to the forefront day to day. Recently, we witnessed to the official unveiling of LG’s flagship for the year, the LG G2. Carrying a 5.2-inch display, the LG phone is somewhat bigger compared to its key competitors on shelves. But, as an alternative, Sony’s Xperia Z is surely a cutthroat rival to the device so that we would like to put these two gadgets for an in-detail comparison. Let us move to our LG G2 Vs Xperia Z comparison below.

Form & Look: At a glance, you can find that both the phones have very thin profiles and extremely slim bezels. The major difference between the devices is in their different screen size. As it is noted above, the LG device is a bit larger with a 5.2-inch display, while the Xperia Z has only a 5-inch display.

In look, the LG one is more curved, while the Xperia Z is not having that much a curved shape. In body density, the Xperia Z is the winner with a superbly thin 7.9mm body, while the LG G2 is thicker at 8.9mm. Going to the display, the G2 has a 5.2-inch True HD-IPS + LCD panel that packs a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels at 424-ppi.

Meanwhile, Sony’s Android flagship mounts a 5-inch TFT display that also touts the same 1080p resolution, but it has rather better 441-ppi because of its slightly small screen. In brief, both devices are highly competitive in all important aspects. Users can just decide whether they want the 5-inch Xperia Z or a bit bigger 5.2-inch G2.

Hardware: It is also nice to go through the innards of the gadgets. Both the devices are excellently spec’ced with all high-high elements. Under the hood, the LG phone features a 2.26GHz Krait quad core CPU, 2GB of RAM and an Adreno chip. The CPU gets its juice from the brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset.

Almost equally solid specs come inside the Sony device as well. It gets energy from a 1.5GHz quad core Qualcomm MDM9215M/APQ8064 CPU, 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 320 GPU.  As for internal memory, the former one has 32GB option, and no microSD slot for memory expansion. The Z along with microSD slot has only 16GB of internal memory.

Camera is another prominent element of the devices. Sony has integrated an admirable 13.1MP rear facing camera and 2.2MP front camera, with both being capable to record video at 1080p. Almost the same is the case with the LG device that sports a 13MP front camera and a 2.1MP front sensor. The interesting point is that both the devices bring together nearly all sophisticated camera attributes that will entice all customers.

Connectivity & Battery: All essential data and connectivity options are also the part of the devices. 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC are some of the always-in-need advanced connectivity options that you can see with both the gadgets. In case of battery, the LG phone has a rather better Li-Po 3000mAh battery unit, while the Xperia Z packs a Li-Ion 2330 mAh unit.

Price, Availability: Sony’s Xperia Z has been available in many countries through different carriers and vendors. Its price is just around $600 SIM free since it is a premium model. Meanwhile, LG is only to take its flagship for the year to the market in a few weeks, and the company skipped to announce the official pricing of the gadget. Maybe, it will also get almost the same $600 price tag.
