Why are they provding TFT???
LED back lit LCD's were awesome in last year phones.
COME on SONY!!!!!

I have seen BE, it's better than "plain IPS". So expect BE2 to be better. And most importantly GO AND SEE IT FOR YOURSELF. DONT JUDGE IT BY SEEING SOME 2-3 PICTURES ON THE NET. And by the way "plain IPS" is also used in cheap chinese phone.

Always makes phones that sound good on specs but has old chipsets inside that ugly round device. Take a closer look it is horsecrap.
As for LG, people never gave a crap about it. Always been a loser.
what? bad viewing angles? yeah Sony Xperia has it, even my Xperia P says gsmarena, but since my Xperia P is the brightest smartphone of the Xperia Range , me Ad my Friends don't have problem watching Anime on my Xperia, it's not yet on max brightness, i max the brightness outdoors only, cause my Xperia P can still be brighter even at direct sunlight, IDK you guys, but pls. buy an Xperia, I buy my Sony Xperia cause Samsung,apple is too mainstream , S3's everywhere, glad wwith my Sony , it's rare here, when they saw my ohone they're like wow!! it;s that the latest, HTC?? they're copycats.
I have a wife and friends, but don't share the media content so don't really care about the viewing angles. Design is almost boxy enough (Lenovo K900 is better :) ) and the features are OK, so I'm buying it if it's not a QC disaster like Xperia Sola seems to be and if it has a decent battery life.

Even mid-rangers from Samsung and LG have better display quality than Sony's flagship devices.

sorry gu... moreObviously you don't have a girlfriend or a wife that sometimes would be setting next to you to watch photos or some clips.
and for those who say that you cannot judge the screen just by looking at a JPG pic.. well, I can see which one has the better screen in this pic..
Loving this phone. Seems a good mid-ranger. Sony and HTC are the only companies that brings decent updates to the phones. They are putting technology to good use, instead of putting every latest crap in even if it is not ready.
Just until the end last year, I have recommended people to stay away from Sony or HTC if they want a efficient phone, but it seems that this year, it will be the other way round.
this always has been a problem for sony. sometimes it seems that they deliberately don`t want to do some things when they are not impossible for them.
screen : ips, affs, amoled, super amoled but they go for their bravia crap.
cpu`s : they offer dual core phones at quad core price.
Battery : sony has been known for their laptop batteries why they lag behind in smartphones then.
Os : launch version of os always behind the competition.
camera : the one area where sony should be supreme they are mere passable. when many competions use sony`s sensor why the camera quality still falls behind criphone, samsung .
this is unacceptable from sony. just a good design won`t do.
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2013Viewing angles are minor problems for me. Quality comes first not popularity.I agree with you!
I dont see anything wrong with their screen, but with wallpaper that they used, i have a XU, and Using default XZ wallpaper look bad.
botbot, 18 Mar 2013only haters comment about viewing angles... because they use their mobiles sideways. sorry gu... morenot haters man...this is a matter of taste...you dont care ok...imo i like to hold and simply look at the display and i know i have a good view, not worring about tilting it to see it in an specific angle to get the "best view"...for instance, you are lying in bed and im sure you´ll be more comofortable holding a good viewing angle phone, especially when you´re reading or watching pics and photos...there´s also gaming, when you gotta tilt your phone to play, no matter what angle is the phone, you´re gonna "see the action" better with a good viewing angle phone...its not a matter of ability to see. i like it cuz it fells more practical and premium and not that i want to show thing to my friends..its like buying a good tv. you buy it thinking of the quality of the display...That just me, again IMHO.
