Sony do make great sensors, but they up untill now they have sold components to other vendors because it makes them money. Now Sony Mobile is in house, they will get priority on new tech apparently.

Sony make fantastic lenses themselves, as to Samsung, Apple don't need it, Nokia have agreements in place. HTC are the only ones I can see doing that, but if HTC but a Nikon brand on thier product thier own brand would die off very quickly.

1/1.6" simply sounds too good to be true!
A sensor that big I haven't seen in small devices since the legendary FujiFilm F30/F31.
If Sony can achieve this without the phone getting really thick (like the mentioned Nokias are), it would be amazing.

I admit recent flagship phones could be better, last sony phone with a good camera was the Arc

I'm waiting for Nikon and Canon to step up and get involved with one of the phone OEMs to make camera modules for them ;)

Sony has a dislay problem with the latest flagship xperia z. Its display becomes dims after several minutes usage. Their video camera becomes dim upon recording

Another sensor that will be worse from what they provide for their competition?

And another phone with a display of such poor quality like in Xperia Z?

I really can't understant why is it so that Sony makes displays, Sony makes camera sensors and they provide their competition with better parts than they put into their OWN devices.

S4- lag but minimal, same old design, plastic cheap feels, too many features leads to confusion to millions whose not nerd, poor audio recording.

Everything has its weakness, but it will overcone if the phone manage to sell to success!!

Ok, the sensor gets bigger but the RESULT counts.. Will it be just like another Xperia camera..? It's a shame considering Sony can make such a hilarious digital cameras (under Alpha brand SLT & NEX and Cybershot especially RX-100 and RX-1). Sony make the sensor for iPhone but the iPhone can result way better image than any Xperia.

Nothing is perfect in this world, everything has its strength and weakness. In the end, it just the matter of choice/personal preference and which device suit/fulfill most of your preferences, like if you want a water resistance android flagship then XZ, if you want an android flagship with best audio output then HTC One, if you want a most powerful android flagship with several cool features then S4, that's all.
