Because it's the best for me. Don't care if s4 is a monster phone. If you don't like it don't buy it, sammy fanboy.

Very nice looking phones. I do wish sometimes that manufacturers like Sony, Nokia, Samsung, LG, etc... would design phones with multiple Phone OS'es (Android & WP8).

That way, they could extend their market to people who really like a particular design, and their favourite OS.

For me, if this phone was running WP8, I would definately purchase one.

samsung does tend to do that.
Just waiting n observing what new things other manufacturers have to offer and then including all of them with some improvements in it's own.and since they produce most things that they require InHouse,it's easy for them to bring their things quicky to the market.
No wonder some r really pissed at them lol

And, don't go by nickname. With Nokia hitting the abyss, my next phone would most certainly be from Sony or Apple.

If its going to be released late march all talks will be about upcoming sgs4 though some fanboys will get it.
No way it can beat sgs4.

If I have to go for Android, I will blindly go with Sony any day. In fact, I recommended an Xperia U for a friend who wanted to go for mid-range android recently. Sammy? Well, it is not worth even my time.

Else, I will go for iphone despite its closed ecosystem.

The white list looks kind of gimmick to me. Furthermore, it is still running Android after all. Don't expect good battery saving from the OS. Maybe a windows phone will, but not Android since Android is so powerful.

It's about time that we got smartphones which can give us at least a couple days with moderate heavy usage! I've heard folks claim about technologies which offer a week on a single charge, but all that's still a few good years away!

Only disappoint IMO, is the water/dust resistance.

This means that all ports are covered to prevent water and dust.

Some people might not like it that way.

Hopefully wireless charging tech is included. (if wireless charging bluetooth headset + wireless charging xperia z .. it would be very nice)
