Not to mention about color accuracy.....HELLO it's Amoled!...Where as many"BUT NOT ALL" Sony screens...especially TFT are under accurate....Also all LCD screens are unnatural for massive lack in contrast in faded gray cartoonish blacks.
The difference is Amoled has color tuning settings. Like Movie Mode which gives it nearly perfect color accuracy while still retaining black levels and contrast...So overall way more realistic than accurate colors and no black.
And that is knowing technology not praising a company. Don't mistake the two in your own jealous fanboyism.

Big_Dikh, 05 Sep 2013Lol.. True...
Samsung Fanboys really
insecure over this beast..
Sony rocks..Actually there are way more Sony trollers bashing in other pages. Both Sony and Samsung are great companies however.
However not only are their more jealous Sony trolls, but it seems in almost every page "especially a Sony one" if someone even just speaks the word of another company "especially Samsung" or says something is not perfect or just that it was not their favorite device...yada yada....
You will get flamed by 20 different Sony fans about jealousy/haters/blah blah...bash this bash that Samsung sucks this "even when it's not about Samsung". Going on and one about hateful comments that are not even there.

Also with auto brightness on in the S4 it can get up to apx 34-37% brighter than you can set it manually.
What about screen durability vs gorilla glass etc. Previous xperia z was not thatbgood in this respect

Currently typing this out while walking out in the bright sunshine. Way nicer color accuracy compared to the Galaxy S4.

Bunyip22, 05 Sep 2013Washed out? Go home... your drunk!Old s3 screens really deteriorates fast. It has a removable battery but the problem is the screen replacement takes longer time and more money to be replaced.
sony, 04 Sep 2013expected much higher rather than these specs, just processor is updated from xperia z, nothing... moreYeah, just the processor. Oh wait: and the lens, and the display, and the camera sensor, and the water resistance, and the additional shutter button and the... Sorry, what was your point again?
Features are great no doubt at all. But what about the size and weight. Samsung note 3 with 5.7" screen has less weight than z1 , though quality is way better than samsung and lg g2 , i think they should have done bit more research on putting weight down and size of the device too. As most will agree even though nokia lumia 920 was graet device because of weight most ignored it even though they wanted windows os.
But i love the way they designed the phone and technology but because of the weight and size i have to ignore it probably 2014 will have better or if sony launches mini with same specs with 4.7 " screen.
Sony has so many problems in xperia z,has sony corrects their display problem yet.the display goes dim after several minutes even the backlight time is set the max.it continues dimming until you let it idle for abt 5 minutes.2nd heat issues,the gadget goes hot easily same as s4.3rd very feeble voice call and audio.4rd bad battery quality.the battery lifes shortened easily after few charges.5th slow alphabet input.6th it is not water resistant device.many issue were made that the device goes blackout after accidentally dropped into water.7th it has a poor viewing angle, sunlight legibillity and the colour saturation is dull n pale compare to xperia Tx not to mention s amoled. 8th weak flash same as s4. Anybody buying hanomi check if it still have this problem or be disappointed!!!
