recommendation Sony Experia Z2 or Samsung Galaxy S5?

Some user reviews I have read elsewhere on the Samsung S6 have left me wondering whether I should instead go for the Sony Experia Z2 both available on monthly contract fromVM.   I would appreciate some opinion from those here who have knowledge of both.    I need to make a decision this week.

Can't offer an objective review, sorry. I can say that I don't buy Sony on principle, and my Galaxy S4 has been a brilliant handset. The S5 seemed to offer everything I had in the S4 but with water resistance. The S6 seems to have had a few teething troubles but any new stock should be fine.

The z2 isn't a patch on the s6.
I wouldn't even look at the z2 over a s4 to be honest.

I was looking at the Z2 for a while as my contract is up in a couple of weeks. However looking at the HTC m8s now, its looks a much better phone and the specs look good too.

 

too many choices these days...

My S6 is a truly amazing mobile but such greatness has its price, Samsung make the best hardware but its counterbalanced by the worst software, my S6 kept crashing and now has died. I know of a few people with Sony and their mobiles work, call me old fashioned but i think you shouldnt have to keep being worried about your phone working or not, its a phone and it needs to work all the time.

 

Sony wins.

All about experience then.
I've had 2 Sony handsets, including the z2 and both have failed on me.

Many Samsungs. Never had an issue.
