Sony's new flagship smartphone is a speedy, durable business device. The Xperia Z2 debuted this week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. It's a true flagship smartphone, boasting a big, sharp display; a fast processor; and long battery life. Under the hood, it packs an impressive Snapdragon 801 processor and a high-capacity 3,000-mAh battery. Sony is touting the device's durable, waterproof design. Get a full hands-on look at the Xperia Z2 on our sister site Laptop Mag, and then read on for three features that make this phone good for business.
The Xperia Z2's screen is big, but not too big. With its large 5.2-inch display and thin bezels, the device will fit comfortably in your pocket while still providing enough screen real estate to complete productivity tasks on the go. A big display like this can really benefit business users who need to view or edit documents when they're away from the office, and basic tasks — such as checking and responding to email — are also more comfortable on a roomier screen. Overall, the Xperia is larger than the average smartphone, but it's much smaller and more portable than phablets such as Samsung's 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3.
Losing a smartphone to water damage is not fun for anyone, but for business users who depend on their mobile device to stay connected and productive when they're away from the office, it can be devastating. That's why the Xperia Z2's durable, waterproof design is such a boon for business users. The device is completely waterproof and dustproof, making it a smartphone you can depend on.
The Xperia Z2 supports a handy multitasking feature called Small Apps, which lets you run an app in a small, floating window alongside any other app. This functionality makes it easier to multitask on your smartphone by allowing you to take notes, create a list or use the calculator (among other tasks) while checking email or browsing the Web. That's a plus for business users, since most smartphones allow you to run just one app on-screen at a time.
