The first time i saw this phone and tried it for the first time I fell inlove with it. This phone is a masterpiece. In my opinion, Sony xperia z display resolution is better than samsung s4. And this phone is durable unlike s4 which is only the screen is scratch proof and everything else is made of cheap plastic.

ON GS4 - i9505,
Go into Settings > My Device > Display > Screen Mode
There you can select 4 modes and 1 auto mode.
Dynamic - Over saturated colors
Standard - this is default on all phones)
Professional Photo - This gives natural colors
Movie - Gives a movie like feel.
Again, it's an option. Does Xperia give options? LOL

You just need to wait for the triangle to finish and make sure youre phone is connected to the charger. Then after that your phone will not able to boot up. It will show that Xperia boot animation repeatedly. To fix this you need to use sony ericsson update service (SEUS) to reinstall the system for you.

darkark, 01 Jun 2013samsung was what?? the first of 8 12 and hdr?? nokia and sony ericsson was the first to use su... morePlease don't feed trolls. One of the greatest weakness of Samsung is the camera. Samsung doesn't have a good enough mobile sensor for their smartphones. That's why Samsung is using Sony's sensor for their flagship knowing that no one would buy their smartphones (except Samsung die-hard fanboy like him) if they are using their own mobile sensor. And for his extra information, Sony is the first to use HDR for videos in smartphones and Samsung is not the first to use 8MP and 12MP mobile sensor for smartphones.
The fact that nearly all Samsung fanboy can't accept is Samsung is the worst technology copy-cat. The floating touch that was first introduced in Xperia Sola is now copied in the Galaxy S4.
Again, do not feed this troll. They are paid by Samsung to do so.
Ryen, 01 Jun 2013Please be cautious of this basher of Samsung. Samsung has copied many new ideas, as has every... moresamsung was what?? the first of 8 12 and hdr?? nokia and sony ericsson was the first to use such a great camera samsung was just straggling back on these days
and what a laugh the biggest IT company?? that is thnx to apple technology which samsung stole and apple used them because they were cheap but u forgot intel which is far greater than samsung not to mention qualcomm and nvidia
32% eeh..again that was about apple not sony in fact samsung is the one depending on the others though as u said they are the biggest suppliers they have tier own hardware yet they used the others i think u can know why if it is because they look for a cheaper ingredients then they are lying about the premium hardware which u pay 650 usd for it
or there hardware is inferior to others which means they are not as great as u are saying
the memory?? have u ever used a samsung rams or hard disks?? they are useless .. my 60 gigs western digital are working while my stupid 500 gigs samsung stopped working and i lost 400 gigs of data the rams are the same issues never lived for more than one year
they don't have the qualities
the other numbers that if it is true they never reached the first ten even though they are paying billions of dollars to be this huge
maybe samsung is the biggest company in this world
but it is far away from being the best
they lack innovation
apple started the touch revolution with their ios
nokia started the revolution with their camera phones
sony started the revolution with the walkman mp3
what did samsung started??
the galaxy s line .. or making something that already exist with larger amount of quantities but in the price of the quality
i like the innovation and love to try the new ideas but samsung had never offered such a thing

Sant, 31 May 2013Can anyone tell me about update .235
what is new in it ?it fu*ked my phone really bad ..
i updated and it was all okay, beter color options, better battery .
the next day i restarted the phone , i do it to refresh it.. and it got stuck at a screen with a triangle and screwdriver in it, waited for a whole day .. after that i manually updated it and factory reset it
hamad, 01 Jun 2013nice joke... get s4 baby n see the truth Hah! S4 is a joke. A big fragile joke. Htc one and sxz are the great choices for a smartphone.
hamad, 01 Jun 2013every thing is perfect here boss but sony xperia z has dull video quality as compare to Samsun... moreAnd good news for you! Sony will come with the Honami and Togari devices which will have Snapdragon 800 under the hood and have a minimum of 16 up to 20MP camera with the cybershot technology and take note IP58 certfied so sorry Sammy! Your S4 Active arrived just a little too late! In fact with that rugged version of your flagship phone GS4, you only made your fantards a bit disappointed in letting them buy something that will sooner have a better version than what they now have.
Ryen, 01 Jun 2013Please be cautious of this basher of Samsung. Samsung has copied many new ideas, as has every... moreThanks for the unnecessary information dude. Let me just tell the FACT that your Samsung's camera phone is actually made by Sony if you are unaware. Even Apple's camera is made by Sony only Apple's chipsets were made by Sammy and how come you didn't know about Samsung being sued by LG for the Smart Stay/Pause and dual shot? Don't you know that Samsung stole it? Even Sony's floating touch is now being called by Sammy their air gesture so now who is the one who steals ideas from others? Sony's economic status is starting to rise now and it won't be Sammy's game forever. In the 90s Sony was like the Apple of that Era. Samsung was always a second best to Sony. Even in the premature era competition of cellphone devices, Sony has always lead the way along with Nokia. Remember the famous Walkman (Sony) and Music Express (Nokia) line in mid 2000s? Those were copied by Samsung's F Series which could have meant (Fcuk) series as Sammy's reputation in building a music phone had not been that great at all. The music and sound produced by the F Series were horrible compared to the Music Express' sound and not to forget about the W550's sound that is the loudest phone up until this day. Smartphones can't compete with it! Try to find one yourself and you will be stunned! We should make ourselves aware of people like you being paid by Samsung to have other OEMs reputation go bad in public.
Ryen, 01 Jun 2013Please be cautious of this basher of Samsung. Samsung has copied many new ideas, as has every... moreAnd why are you offering us these unnecessary infos?
Those are the reasons we should buy a mobile phone from Samsung?Being so large, having so much money, human resources and basically the world on its feet they had no ideas how to improve the design of the S4?They had no ideas on how to develop a new tech?This is what a big company does nowadays?waits for a company to deliver a new idea, wrap it in a new cover and deliver it as a Samsung idea?
My friend, if I would have that amount of resources, I would at least bothered to give the people a new design for the S4 and trade them the excitment consumers urged for.
It is true, many other companies copied others, but since we're talking about samsung, I simply put on the table some realistic facts you deliberatly not presented.
To conclude out little chit-chat, if we are against Samsung, doesn't makes us Samsung bahsers because it is a so huge wtfpwn company but rather because as consumers, we expect something this company didn't delivered because it lacks imagination and because usually, we have a brain and filter the informations rather than taking them for granted
Enjoy their products and spare us of your personal oppinions about a brand is not on the topic menu
I am confused between buying an Iphone4 and Xperia Z... So please help which one should I buy...??
hamad, 01 Jun 2013nice joke... get s4 baby n see the truth Tested the S4 in store for half an hour.The features exists but lol, they are not working as intended.All the fuss about eyescrolling and other features were exagerated.Nothing works as you would expect and just exists there as a function you won't use.
That, plus the same shitty look, made me not having the courage to take the phone out of my pocket and present it as it would be something special.
However, when I do take out the XPZ from my pocket, it immediately atract attention, design wise.As for the tech, S4, HTC one adn XPZ works pretty much the same, except on paper tests HTC and S4 performs better in a way you will never visibly notice to any application because there are no apps that can use all the processor power.
So, my dear friends, if you wanna show off, get the XPZ, if you want something different, get HTC one or XPZ, if you want the same design as in 2010 but with better paper results and why not admit it, more vivid colours due to the SAMOLED screen, get the S 4.
