An epic high end Smartphone Sony Xperia Z1 was released last year in September and February 2014 Sony released its higher version Sony Xperia Z2. But on taking a deep look into Xperia Z2 there seems nothing special to be upgraded by Sony. They have just updated few features of Z1 and give it a brand new appearance but the skeleton remains the same. Sony Xperia Z1 was a very impressive and innovative Smartphone and still it is. Sony has just debugged Sony Xperia Z1 and replicated a Sony Xperia Z2 out of it. The gaming performance of a Smartphone depends upon its processor, RAM and few more things. Let’s see who can handle games and multi tasking more smoothly and efficiently.

Sony Xperia Z2 vs Z1 gaming

Sony Xperia Z1: It comes preinstalled with Android v4.2 jelly bean and can be upgraded to Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat. It runs on Quad core Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at a speed of 2.2GHz. IT is supported alongside by Adreno 330 for graphics enhancement. A 2GB of RAM is also present which is very finicky for a high end Smartphone. At that time Snapdragon 800 was the best processor a Smartphone can have which Xperia Z1 had. It will never lose its charm and impact.

Sony Xperia Z2: This Smartphone comes launched with Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat out of box. It is only because it was release after the release of Kit Kat operating System in market. It operates on Quad core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at a speed of 2.3GHz. It has also go the same Adreno 330 for graphics. The RAM has been upgraded by 1GB which gives it a credit of being superior to the previous variant. Otherwise processing speed of both the Smartphone differ only by 0.1GHz.

The above information suggest that both the Smartphone’s will behave almost same to the maximum number of games present out there. There will be no lag in any of the two Smartphone’s while running majority of games. But when it comes to the heaviest games of the world, then Sony Xperia Z2 will give better performance in both gaming and multi tasking because of its 1GB extra RAM than the previous Xperia Z1. However 0.1GHz extra speed will remain unnoticed to the world when it comes to majority of games and multi tasking. If you have a fixed budget you can go for Xperia Z1 blindly because it’s one of the best performers but if you want the features which are much better than that and you have got pretty enough budget then you can switch to Xperia Z2 also. This is because Xperia has got much higher price than Xperia Z1. Thus, you can experience the features of Xperia Z1 maximised in Xperia Z2 which are both best of Sony.

Google recently released a new Nexus model, the LG Google Nexus 5 with amazing killer specs, the new Android 4.4 KitKat and a better camera. The main attraction of the phone is that it has the best in the market specs at the most competitive price. It is priced at $349 internationally and INR 28,999/- in India when it is set to release soon. But with this price, Google did scamper somewhere to balance it all out and that resulted in a smaller battery in the device compared to other flagships in the market.

So to check out how the battery of the Google Nexus 5 performs, we made it go through a battery test by performing various tasks on it to check out how great the battery lasts. But before that so that you all know, the battery on the Nexus 5 is a 2300 mAh which on paper does not look that bad, but with the high power hungry specs of the phone and the Full HD 1080p display, it does get hard to keep the phone up and running for long.

Another point to be noted here is that the device before starting the test has been fully charged to 100% and the battery has been through the breakdown period. So the battery efficiency is at its highest. Also the screen brightness was kept on Auto so the ambient sensor had adjusted the brightness perfectly and we were indoors with not much light, hence the brightness was on a lower side.

Gaming Test:

For this test we decided on some medium heavy to heavy games which are the popular titles and we chose Subway Surfers, Asphalt 8, Dead Trigger and Fifa 2014 to play on this and we played each game for half an hour exact continuously non-stop without even quitting any game or putting the phone on sleep even for a second. So the screen also has been on the entire time. While playing of course this device has the best gaming performance, so we thoroughly enjoyed our time but our battery reached 1% in 4 hours and 56 mins. So we had run to the charger very quickly in the short time and so we were not much impressed here.

Surfing Test:

Secondly we went on to the web searching for anything that would amaze us. Since due to technicalities there was no 4G connection available so we were able to test it only on Wi-Fi. So we connected to the Wi-Fi here and started surfing the web from Google to checking mails, to browsing FB, twitter, etc. checked out deals on eBay, used Wikipedia continuously without any break again and our battery reached 1% in 8 hours and 12 mins. This seemed pretty apt and was quite cool.

Chatting Test:

Then we went on to the chatting test, again we were online on all chatting apps like BBM, Whatsapp, WeChat, Line, Hike, FB Messenger and our ol’ SMS. We were continuously chatting on the phone non-stop and our battery reached 1% in a matter of only 7 hours. We were not taking any breaks, typing ling messages and using Mobile Data and not Wi-Fi. So overall it is fine if you are chatting with breaks, this phone can last you easily for a day.

Multimedia Test:

This was a very important test as we use our phones for a lot of videos and music. As for the video playback, the battery lasted us for 10 hours which was pretty cool. As for the music playback, the phone lasted for complete 125 hours and some minutes ahead until the phone went dead due to no more juice in it. So overall we were pretty impressed with the multimedia handling of the battery.

Voice Calls Test:

This was a very important test because this is exactly what the cell phones were made for in the first place. As for the calling test we were at a location with a full network and on 3G coverage and we made calls to various people talking to them catching up with friends to see how long the battery would last. Google has claimed the battery to last for 17 hours, but for us it lasted only 14 hours and 44 minutes which is not that bad since we are going to talk for this long in a single day at a stretch.

So all in all our conclusion is that the battery on this device is quite small compared to what others are offering in their flagships, but for the price it is a great device with quite mediocre battery with some smart use and battery saving techniques can make it last for a single day with medium use. Though you will always be running for a charger after a 12 hours day that is for sure, so unless you are ready to compromise on the battery, the LG Google Nexus 5 is the device for you.
