Oh.. again this beauty has water resistant certified, the feature which in the galaxy S series is never adds. This feature is very important for me.

Yep that is true ralph, even if ill buy a new phone in the month when the s4 was launching, still ill choose this beauty. Sony products is very durable and never disapoint me. Maybe the s4 has better performance then then the XpZ, but they still can not beat the quality and the beauty design from this one.
Sony is the best!

As simple as that dude! Simple logic? Would you even tell harshly to an owner of a GS3 that hey! Your phone looks cheap! When in fact you just borrowed it from the owner. Makes sense? Another thing is that I once owned an S3 last June 12 and after a couple of months, I sold it and gotten myself a One X+ instead since it looks gorgeous than the cheap feel of the S3 and it performs everything that S3 can. I bought my One X+ last November by the way so do not tell us that no S3 users complain of how the phone looks like. I even like the build quality of the S2 to be honest. Now that the Xperia Z will be out in a couple of months, I would even say that S3 looks really horrible but it performs ok. ;)

> In reply to Grimlock @ 2013-01-16 12:19 from J2aI - click to readyeah, maybe we can say that or this phone is really the answer for the Note 2. As far as specs go, Xperia Z is really meant to battle it out with the 5" super phones like the HTC Butterfly. Samsung has not even produced a 5" screen yet so I think they're on a different track this time. I think S4 though will have the Octo core? If its not gonna be it then S4 will be the answer to this. Can't wait to buy this phone but I can't wait for the next Sony flagship device late this year! This is my next baby for sure! White one please?! ;)

Maybe at some point when Samsung releases a new phone the Z will be a little outdated but admit it, your Samsh8t phone had been dethroned by this beauty and you are just a bit scared that Samsung might lose the race this 2013 because Sony's designers are the best and they can produce good phones with good quality. Sooner or later they can go up to Samsung's level in sales because in the android manufacturing industry I admit that Samsung leads, for now, but remember that the wheel goes around and its everybody's ball game. Sony is the king of electronics, Samsung just leads in mobile category but their tv is a little behind Sony's. One of our tv's at home was even bought 1992 and it still works perfectly! It has not been repaired since the day my dad bought it from Japan. Now we have the Bravia TV and I think it will be durable as well like our old one and so as this phone since it is IP55 and 57 certified. When S4 is out I bet Sony will be able to outdo your favorite and you will be envious again of Sony's designs. Remember, back in the mid 2000's, no phone manufacturers can beat the Walkman series of Sony Ericsson, not even the trying hard copycat music phones of Samsung. I feel like Sony and Motorola will lead this year since Moto is owned by Google so they can crash Samsung plastic phones anyday when it comes to the software updates and as for Sony, it will be best designed as ever and its now going head to head with Samsung when it comes to specs. Sony, Make Believe! ;)

I must admit the Xperia Z is a beast. Just watch the ads on you-tube and you will know Sony has put a lot of effort into this and what a job they have done. Excellent. Apple cant touch this neither can the S3. Bring on 2013!!
