Xperia Z demo units hit Japan retail stores, sales start February 9 - read the full textJapanese retail stores have started displaying demo units of the hotly anticipated Sony Xperia Z. What's more, there's now an exact date when sales will start, and that's February 9. Mind you, that date counts only for Sony's home market, and not the European, where the device is expected to...

Anyways.. i agree that we are sony fans... Just because of the quality.. sony wont pay us for promoting the brand... It is our exp... Let samsung prove the other way around.. Compare S3 with Xperia S.. see the fit and finish...

Yes,, of course yours were a suggestion... harmless and saving somebody's pocket.. I agree and apologize if it hurts..

Sony really rocks even though it is late... with Z... and Samsung is yet to prove that they too can rock!!

Nobody attacked sony here but all you butthurt jealous haters cant do anything but attack Samsung. I could do the same thing talking about how behind sony is and how samsung has dominated them in almost every camera phone. Or talk about their ugly and cheap quality. But I wouldnt do that because its just as pathetic as you people. I like both companies and both companies make beautiful high quality smartphones. Weather you like it or not when it comes to the tech Samsung is a little ahead but still provides good software and physical quality

Why didnt s3 users wait for the Xperia Z since someone said you might want to wait for the s4 before purchasing the Z? It's two completely different sinerios. The Z is almost released while the S3 was released almost a year ago. The Z and S4 are two top dog flag ships being released within a couple months of eachother. Above all it was no more than a suggestion from a user who likes both companies and said maybe or maybe not wait and see which one you like better before you throw down $300-$1000 on it.

it is really insane to compare a released phone with something that is not even announced. Of course Sony does things in a much better way that samsung...Z is the best phone in the market right now.... Dont just compare it with something that is going to be released.. As someone said.. live in the present..

> In reply to Lopendes @ 2013-01-29 15:20 from vTQB - click to readOn the points you outline, for waiting to see the Samsung S4. Firstly, did the buyers wait to see the Xperia Z before deciding on their Samsung S3? No. Would most of us pay extra for a product oozing and shouting quality over a flimsy cheap competitor? One that is also dust and water resistant? It's a no-brainer... of course, every time. The cost for a high end product is secondary to what we receive in quality. Why buy a BMW 5 series when a Toyota Camry can do things the same, and save you money on purchase? Because we seek the best. Sometimes, the best does not always include everything, but it reflects in quality! I'll buy the Z, you sit and wait for the S4. And after you do that, sit and wait for the Apple 6S.

Read Sony Xperia V Review :P

"The back panel is entirely made of plastic"

as well V as removable battery so as par some idiot users Non-removable battery is not compulsory for water resistant.

Anyways, I do find the design of Xperia Z is beautiful indeed. Still considering if should I trade in my current S3 for it.... Hmm....

Then you'll be talking about S5, again when it comes out, its specs will be common to others. More phone will be out to outperform S5.Then you'll be talking about S6, again when it comes out, its specs will be common to others. More phone will be out to outperform S6. Blah blah blah.. Wait until its release the do the comparison with 2014 Sony Xperia 5R.
