Sony's selling point was durability and looks. Just wait and see when it's released. I'm going for this and the motorola phone x. Please no more samsung and htc for me. I've learnt my lesson on my SE and s3

Check 1st about the growth in volume sales by 2012 in smartphone busines they got no. 4 and growth from 2011 - 2012 they did 50 percent + whch means they are in the right track. Yah samsung wil win in core speed batle due to fact they are making their own chip. Bt with strong multimedia by sony. And design crew. I realy not sure samsung can win it. Price hands down with samsung bt value or investment in product sony.

And to be honest, Full HD and True HD are basically the same thing with really no differences whatsoever. Also, there have been talks of Ultra HD. So, I guess you can go fly that kite in place of me. ^^

The larger majority of people read the news as well as e-books on their phones. Who really buys a news paper anymore, seriously? Stop living in the stone age, and get with the times or it will pass you by. The small minority that your are part of, is all but dead.

I was seriously thinking of making this my next phone. But after seeing that is laking any new features and Sony seems to trying to fool people with meaningless mega pixel numbers, I don't see a reason not to wait for the next Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG, or iphone even.
Sony keeps failing to impress. And as a result, they are falling further behind the competition. The only people who think that Sony's latest devices are so great, are rabid fanboys who were weened of of the Playstation.
Dust and water resistance isn't a real selling point for this phone. Sony has become a struggling company because of their ability to compete. They believe that the Sony name alone is enough to sell their devices. and sadly, that just isn't the case.
How many more devices will Sony release before they get it right? They have the potential to be THE best smart phone manufacturer. But it seems that they just don't know the formula to create a great device. Sony will fail this year just as they have failed last year if they don't get their act together. Mark my words.

I had the S3 and could not tolerate the poor build quality accentuated when the phone cracked close the USB charging port and Sammy would not take responsibility even though the Service Centre agreed it was a manufacturing defect. I don't read on my phone and prefer a real book so yes, Smart Stay is a useless feature as far as I am concerned.
Rooney, 03 Feb 2013I don't know why sony fans are so excited! LG Optimus G with same is already in market Except ... moreYou mean the LG Optimus G which is not even released in the UK yet? And by the way, I played with this phone whilst in the US and if you really know what you are talking about, apart from trlling, you would not mention the LG in the same breath as this baby! Go troll on LG blog!
Grimlock, 03 Feb 2013I know it's full HD, still not new though. There were Full HD screen phones before it. Please name these Full HD phones then or Go Fly Uncle Charlie's Kite Yourself. Full HD is not 720p by the way. We are waiting and we already know about HTC Butterfly which is not even available in the UK yet!
scomii, 03 Feb 2013They are now making use of Clear Bass which is Awesome. Yes I have one walkman with that feature but you know? it's not the same even when you can hear the basses clear you missed the power of the mega hehe.and the thing is I never knew why the remove it from the devices, it's a shame

I wonder more what you are smoking, coming here and compare this to the razr maxx?
I loved my old SE Xperia. However I'm not happy with the new designs. Look too much "chin" and "forehead" making the phone longer than necessary for my pocket. Other brands try so hard to push the screen as far towards the edge as they can! One brand is even testing wraparound and folding screens. The Xperia designs now are impractical, and a longish device today is ugly.
NXT, 03 Feb 2013Xperia Z has advantage in :
- Premium build and look
- Awesome camera & video

Moto have the Edge to Edge , the first to water and dust phone, the best build quality, the battery which last longer 3300mah, the first phone with Android 5.0 called Moto Phone X.
