I seriusly need this phone ASAP, great specs with a smaller factor is all I want. I'm using a Galaxy S4 now for 8 months and I'll never buy another 5" or bigger phone again. I even miss my old Galaxy Nexus when comparing to my S4 experience.

Anonymous, 24 Nov 2013Note 3 is only updated version of note 2. Still ugly.Oh really !! U Comparing note3 with note 2 ??

The Gatsby, 23 Nov 2013Ur comment doesn't make any sense :)Note 3 is only updated version of note 2. Still ugly.
1987, 23 Nov 2013Okay let me tell you what i'm talking about, hope you understand.
I'm talking about real li... moreWell that's the best answer for ur problem :)
check it by urself , overall note3 leeds :)
It includes everything ...so know u may understand ..
Note III dimensions: 151.2x79.2x8.3mm
Z1s dimensions: 127x65x9.4mm
Can you understand and believe that many people want top spec small sized phones??
On the other hand I must disapoint you, there are phones bigger than your favourite note III, check those out and go there trollin' bye :) :)
The Gatsby, 23 Nov 2013Its not totally waterproofed
just for 30 minutes n only till 1 meter
And about Note3 its n... moreOkay let me tell you what i'm talking about, hope you understand.
I'm talking about real life performance like opening and running some apps and games in many video comparison on youtube you can see that even with 3GB of Ram and about 100 MHz higher clock speed Note 3 is not faster than Z1.
The reason Note 3 have the UltraHD or 4K video capture and playback capability is because Snapdragon 800 (that's why note 3 exynos version doesn't have 4K video capture capability) and Sony Exmore RS Sensor.
Z1 uses S800 but the camera sensor inside Z1 is much more superior than note 3, so if Sony really want to put 4K video capture in Z1 i would be very easy for them.
I know the reality for now only acer flagship and note 3 has 4K video capture, but i heard in the next updates Sony will make 4K and 1080p@60fps video capture available for Z1.
IPS LCD is much better than samsung pentile super amoled, because IPS display has more accurate color (according to “displaymate” even in the most accurate setting “movie mode” note 3 and s4 screen is still oversaturated Note 3 113% and S4 122%), higher brightness i know according “displaymate” the peak brightness of Note 3 is 660 cd/m2 but the problem with amoled display is when you set the brightness so high or displaying white background it will consume more power than LCD and Some Ips LCD display can get over 1000 cd/m2 but consume less power than amoled display, longer lifespan, and etc...
from what i know Sony uses 3 different screen for Z1 crappy TFT, VA high contras with 45°-80° viewing angles and IPS with 160°+ viewing angles that's why some Z1 has crappy screen but the other one has beautiful screen.
Z1 japanese version has infrared but just like i said before when it comes to features Note 3 is better.
1987, 23 Nov 2013Even with 3GB of Ram and higher clocked cpu (2.2 GHz vs 2.3 GHz) Note 3 is not faster than Z1,... moreIts not totally waterproofed
just for 30 minutes n only till 1 meter
And about Note3 its not just S pen , its screen is Super Amoled , and it has internal memory till 64gb , it has infarared ,and 3.0Usb ,and its video display is 2160p@30fps , quadcore2.3
and the main thing is its battery is removeable plus its 3200mah and Xperia has nonremovable battery and its standby plus talking time r longer than xperia...
so from which angle u r competing Xperia From Note3 , even Xperia user can tell u the difference no offense
any news or update about the annoucement in shanghai? its already november 23 as we speak.. if this is release next year, gonna buy LG G2 no time to wait, christmas is around the corner lol
Andrew Tan, 23 Nov 2013It is way too thick. Something like Z is reasonable not Z1.
I know Z is only water resista... moreIf you think 9.4 mm is way too thick for you, not mean to offend but you must be very small guy.
The size of Z1 mini (127 x 65 x 9.4 mm) is very reasonable considering it comes with powerful chipsets, large 1/2.3" camera sensor, big 2300 mAh battery and IP58 Certification.
The Gatsby, 23 Nov 2013I know it doesn't have Waterproof but Z1 also dont have 3gb ram n some other features
so it... moreEven with 3GB of Ram and higher clocked cpu (2.2 GHz vs 2.3 GHz) Note 3 is not faster than Z1, but i agree with you Note 3 has more features thanks to wacom stylus/S-Pen.
But i'm not talking about features, i just want to show you that no one can make waterproof phone with thin bezel without making the phone bigger or thicker.
The Gatsby, 23 Nov 2013OMG !!
im not talking about its screen size .... how can a mini have 1080 size display ???
... moreAnd just to make it clear both S4 mini and One mini is no way near “Z1 Mini”.
Let me tell you why
Z1 Mini Has :
4.3 inch HD (720 x 1280) with 342ppi wich on par with One mini.
Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.2 GHz with Adreno 330 and 2GB of Ram.
Large 1/2.3 camera sensor (if i'm not wrong is about 3 time larger than both S4 mini and One mini) with f 2.0 aperture.
2300 mAh battery.
