Maybe because it's not Sony who the first company to develope IPS screen (it was hitachi who introduced it in 1996, it's old) that's why Sony doesnt mentioned IPS in their phone specs. Sony only mentioned its own property rights in there.
Maybe at countries sony has a good aftersales services.
But here in my country their customer service is not reliable at all.
I need to wait 1 month to 3 months for a minor reparation.
And although i still have guarantee card (not more then 1 year, my sony unit got broked), they make me have to pay for the reparation fee that costs 25% of the handheld price
Pathetic Indonesian Sony Center
harsa27, 14 Jan 2014only 245 ppi ? HD? TFT againn and againn...245 ppi. This is a mid-range mini tablet, even Galaxy Note 8 has less ppi number than this - if you understand where does ppi number come from. And yes it is TFT screen - IPS HD (= Super TFT HD) screen.
A flawless phone. The perfect mid-range. Cant w8 for it to reach India. Hope the price is around 22000-26000 INR. Keep up the good work Sony! :)
WOW!! Look at the battery life. Thats the same standby hours as samsung galaxy tablets. FANTASTIC!!
Hope this phone is worth it, must be.
Stone, 14 Jan 2014No IPS, only 1Gb RAM on 4.3 (which is FAR from working properly - at least 2Gb is a MUST), low... morewhat do u mean?!?! what u say is in z1 series, sony flagships. this is just mid-range phablet and seems pretty good.
No IPS, only 1Gb RAM on 4.3 (which is FAR from working properly - at least 2Gb is a MUST), lower processor ... I don't really understand how could such device receive almost 10 on voting!
Sony uses TFT and hence they improves the displays to their best level! wow great i like my display on Xperia Z 4.3.
The only thing i dont like in sony is...
Home,back button are inside in every xperia models..
other than tat all are perfect..
Would be the best if price will be under 25000 INR.mid range phablets are in focus now and can create a craze for Indian customers like SG Grand series.
Excellent phone. Will pick this up after missing the Xperia Z1 :)
