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...

Insecure much?

Fact is, it's the same Xperia alphabet phone over and over again. NO innovation whatsoever. NOTHING game changing about these phones. Sony is to phones, what Honda is to cars - a big fat whoop-de-do whatever. Next!

I used to Love Sony back in the '80's and '90's. They were top of the game in everything. Fast forward to 2013 and they're surpassed by every other manufacturer in every market.

Simple as that. Meanwhile they are being trolled by butthurt sony fans turning it into something its not....and now i DO mean to be rude, but you just contradicted yourself by talking about biased, but you snuck in a biased and lame jab "I choose base on quality not quantity of crap on it"
So dont go preaching

We are talking about two FLAGSHIP releases near each other. And while the details may not be confirmed they are likely very close. Which leads back to the point of wait and see.

Even S# has the same picture quality and still it does not have any problem.
I dont think it will have with Sony with the spec.

hi Mr.

i don't mean to be rude, but don't you think your comments seems bias?

look around you, you seems lost your keen observation about techs. `there are variety of gadgets to choose from, and each one of us choose differently from any brand with their line-ups. Me, i choose a product for i believe in it. I choose base on quality not quantity of crap on it. We buy things that are fitted to our needs, not just wants.

And there's No gadget that is perfect to everyones' eyes. There's always loop holes....


thank you ;-)

I am comparing Samsung with Sony coz i know Sony Z is nice phone & Samsung is only company which is good as Sony.

Why should i told users to bye Samsung ? Samsung is not giving me any money for advertising so its straight n simple.

Most prefer the saturation, though some would rather softer colors. Also of course blacks and sunlight legibility are clear winner.

> In reply to [deleted post]first understand what i have written. i said why so many samboys. it is clear who is the supporter of which brand. why don't we see people saying wait for LG optimus pro or htc M7?
because only samboys try to convince others to buy their crappy plastics.

> In reply to Matt @ 2013-01-29 15:19 from p@vf - click to readeverything might be a matter of preference.. LCD and amoleds have their own advantages and disadvantages.. if Sammy will release more advanced super amoled with reduced oversaturation, then it myt b d best display ever.. in UIs, elegance (timescape) vs functionality (TWiz)..
and another point that im after is thecamera, i have used the photo compare tool of gsmarena and havnt seen any Sony's phones even d 13mp ones that outperformd the Galaxy s3.. seriously, Sammy uses Sony's lens but sammy know how to optimized it..
abt design, yeah im in love wd Sony's, abt 1p57, dont care, coz im not going to use my phone in very harsh usage bcoz i'll never know some problems will emerge..

> In reply to Lopendes @ 2013-01-29 15:20 from vTQB - click to readWhen you start a comment saying you are not a fanboy...usually you are!!!!

Design: we know Samsung sucks at design. S1 = iphone copy (which is an LG copy), S2 = alright design but still a little close to iphone design, S3 = FUGLY, if anything it makes everyone thinks a pebble is ugly as well (which is can be but not ugly vs. S3)!

Water/ Dust Proof: I guess you don't live in UK or Middle East. I live in UK and boy do I get annoyed that I can't use my phone (and worry about it when if it gets wet) because its raining! Not sure where you are from but if you are from USA...showing your ignorance again. Same thing with LTE....LTE outside of US...is super expensive (expensive in US too I hear) and coverage is non existent outside of major cities not to mention no LTE in certain countries.

Storage: check the specs: http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_x...a_z-5204.php

It says it takes micro-sd unless GSMArena got it wrong! Also you have cloud option. I am happy with my Nexus 4 16gb so don't see a problem here. Plus stop storing your freaking porn on your phone!!!

Barometer: yeh ok give you that one but its definitely not a deal breaker in purchasing decisions.

Screen type: LCD no doubt won't be AMOLED, thank heavens! If over saturated and completely unrealistic colours is your thing then go Samsung. My wife has S2 and the colours annoy the crap out of me!!!

Processor power: Read the specs please. We know the processor model so we know what to expect.

Cam clarity, Call clarity , Battery Endurance: As you stated, lets wait for the reviews to come in. No doubt it'll be as good as Samsung if not better!

Final choice is ours but with crappy input from people like you. I might as well buy an iphone and join the Apple iSheeps!

Thankfully I have Nexus 4!!

i dont think water resistance is good in a phone. no water gets in no air get out. using a quad core processor it will easily get hot

If you dont know the air pressure at sea level (P0 [thats a zero]) then you do not need to know air pressure (P) as well. Just read a book about meteorology for pilots and you will understand why its a waste of time to carry a barometer. I read several books like that when i studied for PPL-A.
