According to Thai blog SonyXP, the SIM-free version of the Xperia Z will be selling in Thailand for as much as 19,900 Thai...

I liked the design that the russian guy reviewed better than this. Im getting sick of seeing brick phones that get bigger and bigger every year.

I call this BS. I wouldn't expect SIM-free Yuga version in Europe for less than EUR 700 incl. VAT taking into account Sony price-setting policy and habits.

i think it is way too expensive, the pricing should be around US$500 Max, looking at the Nexus 4 which has similar specifications minus the 1080P screen costs only 299 plus taxes, people rather by the nexus 4 which costs less and is as good as the Sony but with only 8GB memory and non HD screen, Sony please reduce the pricing the $500 and this maybe a better buy

Are you going to marry the phone?
You see how much S2 got from daily interests? more than any Sony's phone! Because people are not as much as your superficiality.
People care for what inside tech hardware not outside plastic or Aluminum because most people use cases so it will not differ , and S2 has a lot of great cases.

Its not important to me also, but if it looks like an iphone then i am out, like Galaxy S2, ugliest phone ever, shameless copy of a shameless phone.

S4 quad? Now there are plenty of phones with this chip ZTE Huawei ...etc and much cheaper so there is no especial thing about this phone.
Unless Sony come with better camera or develop their own CPU/GPU.

To me design doesn't matter. Only thing that matters is latest tech which includes latest hardware and latest software aka OS. At the end of the day almost all phones look same unless we are talking about phones like Swivel or Flip phone.

Take a clue from all that have been left out in the cold by Sony, then we will talk.

About the design, i would have preferred a design more like Xperia V/T/TX, since that is still a new and fresh design. On the other hand its good they do not reuse old designs, i know i am not the only one who think ip5 looks like a sick old lady on her deathbed with its ancient design. They are now starting on their 7th year with the same design, thats shameless. Same goes for Lumia 920, both N9 and Lumias used the design before it, outdated and demonstrates a lack of effort in being creative.

Say what you want about GS3 and GN2 design, but its original and fresh, i like it, and i hope Samsung will do as Sony and come up with new designs for each new generation of phones.

This is the worst news possible for Xperia T owners (and Xperia S), although they may not know it yet.
It's not about "jealousy" or anything of the likes, it's rather about the policy Sony has regarding OS updates.

Xperia T is now the "ugly kid".
Xperia S is plain dead after the upcoming update.

Truly a shame!
They should take a hint from Samsung on how to support their flagships (although it took quite a while for Samsung to start doing this).

Only the clueless will buy a phone knowing that (at best) one year from now it will be completely out of support (updates) OS wise.

Sony, get your act together! If your phones are meant to be disposable crap then you really do not need to build them like they are (neither charge what you charge)!
Sony == Huawei on steroids. Sorry but it's true.

I don't think I'd be buying this device. Why?? Sony might not be selling it in my country. The Xperia T has yet to make its presence felt here. The highest spec sony we can get here as of now is the Xperia S.

Unless Sony changes its policies, I'd go with the Galaxy S4.
