> In reply to Anonymous @ 2014-10-17 06:32 from 6Qun - click to readIf I was to compare the nexus 5 with the xperia z, nexus 5's battery life will be worse than the z, loudspeaker performance is just as bad. However, nexus 5 has a way, way more powerful chipset, much faster updates (its getting lollipop in end-november, while xperia z will get it not before april next year). Also, the lollipop update is only the 2nd update for the nexus 5, so it will surely get the next version of android after lollipop, whenever it comes. I would say go for nexus 5 if you can live with the average battery life, otherwise go for htc one m7 if its in your budget. If neither option works out only then go for xperia z.

Metal body, stereo speakers, great display and great interface. I wouldn't recommend going for htc one mini because the chipset and RAM are no match for xperia z. Also, the mini has only 16 gb non-expandable storage. Looking at your needs, best option is htc one m7 if its within your budget. Else, go for xperia z.

Galaxy Note 3 Neo:
Not a AMOLED FAN
hate too much TOUCHWIZ UI(I REALY LIKE HTC SENSE then STOCK ANDROID then XPERIA UI)
it it about 500 USD....( I can get XPERIA Z2 in this price easily...but at that time i can't afford it)
HTC DESIRE 820:
I do not like its Design it looks like cheap plastic ....
It has 267 ppi...(even my chinease Brand phone has 320ppi IPS),,,
SONY XPERIA Z will get ANDROID LOLIPOP .... Due to which I stat reconsidering this device again....

The new htc desire 820 is similar to the note 3 neo and its battery life will still be better than xperia z (not as good as the neo though). Its got stereo speakers too and the chipset is again better than xperia z. In my country all 3 devices are in a similar price range. Google nexus 5 was also far better than xperia z in some areas but its speaker performance and battery life are just average.
