No matter how good is the hardware, i wouldn't buy a Xperia because of the slow and buggy UI.

Sony electonic products has a very excellent audio and video except mobile phones. Sony is always inferior, but the company always claiming that their phones are beautiful fast, etc. Is it? Bulky coz bezels too prominent. The capacitive botton always have a special place in the screen plus the bezel made their products bulky...... Poor sound, no amplifier, etc. I would suggest that sony has to put amplifier and subwoofer on their phones. Poor photo capture, rectangular slab form factor (too simple craftmanship), poor color saturation, etc..... Odd and annoying... Anyway where is the 20mp camera?????????

so, this is just mind-raping shit. 1/1.6'' is like getting high when you shot a scene. imagine the crisp boobs and the platform for your prev skills to show off! sony, so do this: don't release any phone for a few months, just stop, for a few months, study and predict the future, have an foresight, make pretty pretty hypothesis - give us a phone.

If honami will be as thick as XL, well there is no issue provided that sony will provide optical zoom lense, compact (less bezel) and more rounding of edges.

Look samsung again developed Super PLS to address the viewing angles and thickess of their phones. Sony done nothing on theirs. Thick/oversized/bulky, poor viewing angles etc.......

Sony is struggling to win a battle but not the war.... To win the war Sony must change its way to please phone buyers and fanatics. BE and triluminos display must be in all aspects not only for inages and videos. USe of slcd or samoled to maKE it thinner and bezel free. The speaker should produce a bass (low frequency sound) mini subwoofer. More rounding on all edges not a rectangular slab. A superb camera also..... See the XZ if u turn camera directly against a bright light or in a dark area what will you get? HDR seemed to be a hoax. Its just to fool people. Thats all

The thickness between the tft and the touch interface is not changing then how can this viewing angles be changed otherwise? That thicknes if viewed in an oblique position the it become thicker, thats why the color seemed to fading. Thats all.... This is the secret of sony: XZ is thin but have a look on the bezel near the capacitive botton at the bottom of the screen. Its wide making it taller than the s4. This is bcoz some parts of the phone were moved to that area. And when those parts were relocated to make the bezel disappear, sony made the ZL version. In ZL what will u get? Its thicker....... bla bla bla.... BE and triluminos display in images and videos only? Samsung put theirs in all aspect. U know why? Because Samsung used their very own SAMOLED where the battery consumption had dramatically reduced by this technology..... Sony on the other hand had to find a way to reduce battery consumption by putting the BE technology in images and videos only.... This is only the time I realize sonys secret.

SE or Sony has good technology butalways behind in: power, sound quality, speed, color but they excel in some cases. I am a SE n Sony user fromT610 to Xperia S but not XZ coz S4 is more,........... in everything. Look Honami said it will n the best but have a look on S4 Zoom. What is in it? Will u still say Honami is the best? Look Sony only use BE in images and videos, poor sound quality, inferior processor and camera, excessive white pixels made images less green blue and red. dont unferstand Sony. But let us see Honami. Dnt forget the zoom lens by the way.........,,,
