Sony Xperia Z vs. HTC Butterfly: A tale of two screens

Sony Xperia Z vs. HTC Butterfly: A tale of two screens - read the full textFlagships have evolved significantly during the past year, and in screen terms in particular, what once looked like overkill has become the gold standard for both size and resolution. HTC was the first of the major manufacturers to set the bar high...

Ive been using the Xperia Z for 7 months now, nd I haven't been let down by sony.
It was the first flagship having water resistance. There may be since issues with the viewing angles but otherwise it is a great phone to invest in if you're looking for a. 3+ year investment..

Got that Sony Xperia Z and the poor viewing angles don't even bother me. And the contrast neither.It's great for me. I don't like those too bright display. And the display is way better than Amoled.

Both screens are great but when it comes to form factor, the Xperia Z will turn more heads. It will get you the chicks. Guys will develop crushes on you. Traffic will stop to see what phone you're using and accidents will occur. It's seriously a social and occupational hazard.

Xperia Z all the way. Unless you were born with a lopsided head or want everyone on the train, bus, work or anyone sitting beside you to read the stuff on your screen than viewing angles don't really matter. Even then the Xperia Z's screen holds up well. People are just been overly nit-picky.

Im very sad to say from the Z, one and GS4 i think generally the weakest is the Z
It realllly hurts me to say that since i myself is a loyal SONY fan :(

The big problem with the xperia Z is the screen.

The viewing angles are terrible and it looks so washed out.

The most important feature of a phone is the screen an the xperia z is pretty average compared to the SGS4 and One.

(see about 1/3 of the way down)

if you have issues with the xz screen, check this out:

xz looks better with the bravia engine on. i just wish sony makes that bravia engine turned on all the time.
