I have the White Xperia Z and have never experienced the lag you claim in real life use, I don't rely on videos of non retail versions but the real thing. I also own the Nexus 4 and have never experienced any lag on it either.

You do realise LCD and TFT are versions of the same thing? Right always free to google it, TFT is LCD!
Taufik, 11 Mar 2013Hi there xperia users. I'm currently using iphone 4. Im no stranger to android phones used a m... moreHi,
To answer your first question.. No doubt, the screen/display in my opinion and based on others' comments here, Sony Xperia Z has better display.. Pixel and Detail-wise thanks to Mobile Bravia Engine 2.. Specially if you love taking pictures and looking at them through your phone because BE2 makes pictures better and corrects them.. Water and Dust is certain however the shock proof feature is not said although you can view diff. Youtube videos where they throw the device off and let it land on the floor and even hammer the screen directly (and the back glass portion as well) and still shows no scratches and damages whatsoever.. The flaps are said to last for the lifetime of the phone and you can buy a charging dock as well.. Battery should not be an issue based on the reviews and comments of users and my personal experience as well as it really lasts for more than a day and although its non-removable, since you consider Apple's I-Phone and Sony Xperia Z then it shouldn't be an issue as both have non-removable batteries.. Lag issues.. I haven't experienced any yet and I don't believe I should be based on the other's comments here.. (Just make sure you're not reading troll comments). And just try it for yourself to see and believe its wonders.. IP5 is good but I believe this is better.. One reason why I will be choosing this over IP5 is coz IP5 is really much easier to break and I want to take pictures under the pool at least.. Can't do that with IP5.. Just look for other convincing comments here.. Just make sure to identify Trolls and Real users..
Cheers and Good Luck!! :D
Yamitenshi, 11 Mar 2013A non-removable battery is a legitimate issue, for a number of reasons.
For one - batteries... moreAlso with an external charger you have to charge the unit but if you have a spare battery within a few seconds you can have fully charged phone again..I like replaceable batterys but i am not doubting XZ can last the day and like everyone else i charge over night..
I have come back cause just seen advert on tv about the screen..I have had bravia in S/E XPERIA PRO and Sony Xperia T do you think this is even better?I will try this phone at some point second hand but found the T camera to be mediocre ..I have always like S/E phones and do like Sonys designs too just that when i try them they dont do so good in the departments i like..My fave S/E has to be the W900i followed by p900 but S/E PLAY and Xperia pro were pretty good and never had any lag...I think the Adreno class of GPU'S to be pretty good.
All this bickering when its only smartphones and everyone has different needs,if we put all this effort into discussing,helping and trying to push boundries with these things the more exciting.70% interest per day proves its popular but still getting S4 first if its any good,could be another ugly thing again like S3..Sony could teach Sammy a few build quality techniques.
Unswerving from Sony ( translated from French)
To avoid water and dust damage
For long term please use docking charger and wireless headphone .
Any comments ?
Sorry for my English

Guys, is there an auto rotate toggle from the quick settings widget, I can't seem to find it? Is there a way to add that function to the proprietary quick setting toggles in widget?
JingXiang Lim, 11 Mar 2013Hey~
If u hav issue wit non-removable battery...
Why dun u go n post some comments at Apple ... moredude by holding the screen off button for 10 seconds u can switch off any Android phone. and in apple you need to hold both home key and screen lock buttons for about 10 seconds to switch it off even if it is locked.
the main advantage of a removable battery is that you can have a spare battery. most people don't understand this.
for all u sony haters
" We did not
experience any lag at all while launching
apps, playing games, scrolling web pages
or switching between apps."
Ok.. just got my black XZ today.. will be testing batteries, viewing angles, and most likely everything negative and postive that I've read here. Firstly, I did a drop test on the second floor to the pavement below and dunked it in the tub.. it still lives so far. :)

I am the proud owner of the Sony Xperia Z phone since 1 March.
The only one the little "but" in this phone, is place where situated speaker. It is to easy to cover it with you OK finger ;-)
And seriously Sony can teach Apple, how to create the good innovative product. Because Apple lost its spirit long time ago.

Xperia Z wins in looks, processing power & toughness, whereas, Iphone 5 has better optimization, display, headphones & pricing. Both phones has same quality camera but Xperia Z has the upper hand with HDR video & burst shots. & Iphone might just have the better virtual assistant software. Altogether it depends on ur preference and also your budget cuz u have to pay extra pennies for the extra power of Z
Aside from overhauling its choice of materials, Sony has also stepped up big time in the display department with a new 1080p panel. That’s over 2 million pixels squeezed into a 5-inch footprint, resulting in a spectacularly dense and detailed display. Try as I might, I could never discern an individual pixel from those around it, which is hardly surprising given that the 440ppi (pixels per inch) density of the Z is roughly a third greater than the 326ppi of the iPhone’s Retina display. In fact, with most 720p displays already achieving similar results, you might say the full 1920 x 1080 resolution here is surplus to requirements. All the same, it feels good to know that any Full HD movies you choose to watch on the Z will receive a pixel-for-pixel reproduction on the phone’s large display. Even if that's largely a psychological comfort rather than a practical advantage.
Color accuracy and the automatic brightness adjustment are both well calibrated on the Z, however Sony’s latest flagship retains a weakness from its predecessors: poor viewing angles. Tilting the phone away from you (in any direction) quickly washes out the picture. Neither the optical lamination of the screen nor the software enhancements of the Mobile Bravia Engine 2 can prevent the loss of contrast and color fidelity when looking at the Z from an indirect angle. It’s disappointing to have to keep harping on this issue with Sony, whose whole Xperia line is characterized by the dichotomy of sophisticated design and inadequate LCDs. Just once, the company should splash out on a truly gorgeous display, such as you will find in the upcoming HTC One that the Xperia Z is going up against, and see how much of a difference that makes. As it stands today, the Xperia Z is more attractive with its screen turned off rather than on.
