Lemme put you in perspective, Xperia Z was launched with S4 Pro which is top notch but then a week later snapdragon 600 came up and S4 Pro became outdated. A couple weeks later Exynos Octa came up then boom bye bye S600 and hello S800.

too bad that for octa core there is no lte; it would have been a hit; now, it's just something almost perfect but yet to be improved.

why do you have something against the z its a good phone juss like the one the diffrence is something you should not bother arguing infact me i would choose the sony over htc just for the water proof. the thing with fanboys you dont respect people and ther choices and your convince yours is the better well maybe for you but not someone else.

Samsung is hit because of its structure, the extra facilities like micro sd card slot android operating system, apple I'm sorry you dont have anything to offer except for your boring iOS. For me my next fone is is the htc one, the s4 is a huge disappointment same old boring design. I'm sure the one will be a huge hit this year giving apple and Samsung some food for thought......

S4 has nothing but the Galaxy brand to become a hit (which I'm sure is enough but the question is how big of a hit). S3 had a larger display than any competitor could offer in any of their products and that's why it was a success.
