They didnt start it but they helped with popularity because people are believe crapple is a good company. By their name, money, and power is what did that. Samsung has brought out the first in almost every mega pixel update to a phone and it wasnt just pixel count. They were the best or among the best and have had better camers then almost every sony camera. Samsung brought large amoleds and HD to phones as well

Samsung is just famous in recent year after Apple showed people with the new way of using Smartphone and again just to mention Sony used to show us the way of using the smartphone too with their WALKMAN and Cybershot. And honestly SAMSUNG never show ppl of this world the new way of using smartphone! Oh I forget SAMSUNG is very famous because of iPhone if there is no iPhone it will never exist SAMSUNG (I mean SAMSUNG will never famous today)
I really don't want to make war because of any brand name phone but You are too much !

With all the features of Xperia Z has, I think the price is OK and not over.

i dont want to be rude, but only rich ppl go for the higher price cuz their brains are full of soil not actual brains. it is like buying Mercedes instead of higher and better quality Lexus

Sony is still one of the best among electronic companies. do you know Apple's first models of iphone were adopted from Sony's designs and Sammy tries to copy the designs and features of Sony tvs. Sony is one of the greatest in design and build quality and will not die easily. you must wait and see. xperia Z is just the beginning. oops, too long.

Nokia and Sony days are gone.
Sony had better mobile phones before thy bloody aquired Ericsson. they csannot come back because their marketing strategy is worse than any other company in the world.

Apple Marketing is King and so Samsungs.

Samsung will stay King for 5 or more years to come.

After Samsung and Apple, Lenove will rise.

Sammy holds this place just for a year and its not difficult to beat it. Nokia is rising again and be sure that if apple doesnt change its strategy will be defeated soon. by the way, Sony is Sony.

Nexus 4 should have crushed every other phone. it is not the specs it is the Branding. Samsung is KING now, Sony is soon Joining Nokia for the battle who will be taken over first. Nokia will be aquired by Microsoft and Sony by Apple.

Galaxy S3 is still selling like Hot Cakes so Samsung Should not be rushing because Even S2 is still selling very well.

Why pay double only for better graphics and being waterproof and dust proof...

Motorola tried waterproof had excellent advertisements for it didnt even sell 2 millions at nearly half the price of this. where do u think this gonna end up. practicality is more important than some lousy specs.

Let me get this straight, 1080p screen, 2 gig ram, frame comparable to that of a car, water resistant, dust resistant, quad core with adreno 320 gpu, dragon trail glass( much much tougher than gorilla) plus other features yet some people actually complain about the price of this ??? I really don't blame you guys to be honest but sony, for giving there all to satisfy your needs forgetting the world really don't appreciate good guys but rip-offs. LONG LIVE PLAY, LONG LIVE SONY.

Samsung are going to have to come up with something special to beat this. It just oozes quality.

Sony flexes its muscles and Samsung suddenly looks two bit.
