Apple Lover, 05 Mar 2013Nobody is going to buy this junk for $800 when they could buy an iPhone for the same price. I would buy it if it were $1000 dollars before I buy an iphone.

I was proportionedly contradicting his opinion because of his own question wording. If he really is curious, he could just ask why it is expensive, but not by wording it as if its too overpriced. And u can see by yourself that he is comparing a handset with a full sized pc. So, let me ask, dear sir, putting his initial question and my initial answer in mind, who is unpleasant? Obviously not me.

That seems a bit much in my opinion but thats just my opinion.

So could you please explain what is in this device that makes it worth that price?
My reasoning is that you can buy a good computer nowadays for $400-$500.
I do know alot about tech and I'm just not understanding why phones cost as much as they do now.
Apple Lover, 05 Mar 2013Nobody is going to buy this junk for $800 when they could buy an iPhone for the same price. I would not buy apple device even cheaper than xperia ZL. Bcoz if you use their products, meant they has successfully put you into prison through technology and their called this to protect users. in other words they still need money from the buyer, and i said this with the pillage.

He may be genuinely curious about what makes smartphones these days cost as much as they do. Maybe he wants someone to fill him in on what goes into these devices. I guess we'll never know because your unpleasant nature has probably driven him away.

Are u saying that every brand out there has no substantial value in their phones in comparison of their price? If so, then u are sorely mistaken. Every manufacturer, not phones only, will always offer the best quality affordable by their product overhead cost. Sell too expensively, then it will lose competition.
2. Ur question is far from simple, its a response triggering question by creating a negative impression upon the particular item.

2. You are being very unnecessarily rude when all I asked was a simple question.
Rashiq, 05 Mar 2013Man!! Why does the good things cost so much? I thought it would cost around 500 not 750Its a mistake! The price is $579. I checked with a few retailers!
The red one is beautiful!
I'm ordering from online retailer
So Xperia Z is not coming to US and only ZL is ??? thats so crazy!.... Z is 10x better than ZL!!
Sony really need to fix the camera issue in Xperia Z.
The photo looks worse (less sharp) than the one shot by S3.
Another big issue that mobil Bravia Engine was not fully optimized to enhance the video quality in browser. Try to compare the similar low quality video between Xperia Z and NEXUS 4, you will notice the video in Nexus 4 looks very much better.
When xperia z arrived in USA at the same soon will arrived in Malaysia too

Sony is the inspirer of Apple and they produce much better products in the field of electronics.
