How can u compare Z with SIII?
You r challenging Sony's upcoming super hit with Samsung's last year product...?
On the other hand SIV has rumored Octa core. So, apparently you got ur answer pal!
I have to say after guessing the answer that u r pretty fast guy.

The same thing as what s1, s2 and s3 did,,, bring out more and newer features, great spec, bigger battery, come out with 16, 32 or 64gb internal memory, the camera quality is probably the same or better, more support from xda developers and better history of updates,,, but since SIV is not out, you and i have no idea yet

I actually love the xperia z, but without the nice design and waterproof, its basically the same as all other flagship phones

Beside, design and maybe screen quality, the other OEMs had NOTHING to show off/market with.

Meanwhile the s3, had sbeam, smart stay etc. to market with.

Do u get what im trying to say now?

pure facts

The One X is faster than the s3
Better build
better design

So why my friend did it fall beneath the s3.

It is because people in these times, want a phone with more usability and features

And im not trying to bash blackberry, because i use a bold 9700 for my job, but blackberry need to surpass the s2 first before it can be considered among the top phones of 2012 and 2013

You fandroids have been trolling the ip5 and apple products in general slamming and attacking, for the past 5 months based soley on "specs". Now the s4 is being challenged by another non apple device, they use the specs crap on you guys, and you guys using the same thing apple users are telling you, which "specs don't matter"

Whats funnier then android users saying there are no issues and problems with the s3? Is android users arguing with other android users. What a joke. BBz10 will take out the s4 with ease.

S1,2 and 3 were the best phones of their own times the point is that Sony is rising and its not an easy job to slow it down. i believe in what im saying. maybe S4 can defeat Z, but not without difficulty. what do you think S4 can bring to defeat Z??

regardless of what some people may want to people, performance by such slim margin does not matter, example... The One X if im not mistaken, is slightly faster than the s3, yet the s3 came out top droid over the One X, and xperia T...

When will person understand, the avergae customer these days are not nerds, they dont care about a slightly speeder benchmark... but the overall usability and features of the phone, and this is what samsung understands and it capitalizing on, thus why if u mention about android in 2012, the s3 is always used as a corner-stone.

And usabilty and feature wise, the s3 as old as it is, is can compare and beat the 2013 flagships that has been released so far

Galaxy s 1, s2 and s3 pretty much was the best phones of their time so why wouldnt the S4 do the same? In conclusion the S4 has a very good chance to defeat xperia Z

Though I would definitely crave for better material than polycarbonate as Im pretty sure that my sammy device won't stand a high end drop.
What's funny is how this phone which just purely based on rumours is coming up the gsmarena phone rankings chart.

according to its current rumored specs . . . the S IV is no match to the Xperia Z - which will become the most popular phone when it launches

& btw Note 2 & S3 both are quad core phones where note 2 have 2gb ram too.

I think S4 is yet to come & I think note 2 or S3 can handle Z with +/- chart

& then S4 will bash Z with its performance.

& about design winning its a personal choice.
