We review the specs and features of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2, two of the best new Android phones announced at Mobile World CongressKey specs
The specs of the Galaxy S5 and Xperia Z2 are very similar. Both are powered by a Snapdragon 80 2.3GHz quad-core processor, with 2GB RAM. They both have a 1080p display (the S5 is SuperAMOLED and the Z2 IPS LCD).
The Z2 has 16GB of internal storage, and the S5 is available in 16 and 32GB versions. Both have microSD card slots. The Z2 has a higher resolution rear camera at 20MP compared to 16MP on the S5, and a slightly larger front facing camera at 2.2MP against 2.0MP. It also has a bigger battery: 3200mAh compared to 2800mAh.
We say: There’s not much in it. This is, however, a rare example of a Samsung flagship phone not completely outspeccing the competition.

The much-hyped Moto X is set to launch in the UK, and will go on sale from 1st February.
The Android phone was originally released in the US last Autumn, and became one of the most highly rated phones of the last year. It is now coming to the UK, along with France and Germany, and will be sold for £380 SIM-free.
The 4.7″, 720p handset packs mid-range specs but performance to rival higher end devices. The 10MP camera is also rated as being among the best on the Android platform.
