One of the big stars of MWC this week, aside from the GS5, has been the Sony’s latest flagship handset, the Sony Xperia Z2. In many ways the Xperia Z2 is mostly an incremental update over its predecessor but there are a few areas where Sony really took a big leap forward, such as the display.

Judging merely by resolution and size, the display might not seem like it has changed much, as it’s still rocking a 1080p resolution and is only .2-inches bigger. Don’t let this fool you, the IPS-based Triluminos display on the Xperia Z2 features Live Color LED technology and other improvements that provide much better viewing angles than we’ve seen in the past. The Sony Xperia Z2 also ditches the anti-shatter film screen protectors that are designed to protect your phone but ultimately scratch easily and gives the display a plastic feel to it.

So how does the Xperia Z2 display compare to the Z1? Thanks to several new photos from Digi-Wo, we now get a better idea in the picture gallery below. Of course it’s important to note you still might want to see the Xperia Z2 display “in real life” to get a better idea of how much better the display really is.

What do you think of the Sony Xperia Z2 based on what you’ve heard and seen so far, impressed? Conversely, do you feel that Sony should have brought bigger changes to the specs, features or aesthetics of the Z2?
