The drawback of SONY XPERIA Z2 is non removable battery, but Sony company should consider to make the phone not easy to open because this is waterproof smartphone. More open location will make the phone easy to leak with the water.

The drawback of SONY XPERIA Z2 is glass at body design, using body glass at this smartphone will make us consider to give screen protection at the back size (not only for LCD screen), because we are worry some scratch will appear in this glass.
