Huge phone.. But shouldn't it be bigger then 1080p to display 1080p apps? Else the apps /games is not true 1080p right?.. because the soft-key eats up part of the app space..
Of course,Sony Xperia z is the best smartphone that currently exits.it's way better than Samsung galaxy s3 and apple iPhone 5.but Sony must quickly have to launch a successor of Xperia z to complete with next iPhone and Samsung galaxy s4.

Sure i can source what i say, im not like you and get all defensive if someone questioning me for spreading unfounded rumors, this is a tweet from sony:
Sony Xperia News
.@mwuhani3609 we don’t comment on supplier names but Xperia Z uses durable tempered glass that has equiv specs to Gorilla/Dragontrail
Sources are many, for example this one,
the xperia z has dragontail glass, which is 6x stronger than gorrila glass.

The xperia active is the most durable smartphone I have ever seen anything more durable is usually not a smartphone and it uses dragontrail glass. Why would sony use anything els knowing they already have a winner also knowing that this is there first all glass phone As Sony and not SE. I have had Sony ericssons since since 2004 and I have never once had to replace a screen or glass panel my x10i has fallen over 100 times in 3 years (not exagerating it's white so im always losing it between the sheets easiest way to find it is usually to air the sheets out resulting in my phone flying across the room )and not one repair unlike friends with iphones and galaxy's.
As i knew this is the first smartphone i ever watched like this ....as it will 40 i will n m going to but it at any cost ??? :p the amazing n sexiest smart phone ever i watched ...!!! :p
oh SONY..please..don't do this to me..again..
ready to sell my ION right now..haiseh...

Its a problem because i always have to go back to the homescreen or turn off/lock the screen before putting my fone down, coz i dont want my wife reading when i am texting with my girlfriends, of course. If i could keep it face down then no problem, i ould simply lift it up and read the next incoming textmessage. My doctor is using iphone and he dont have a problem, the iphone will stay on any surface if face down while the Note 2 is slippery as an eel.
Gorilla aside, did Sony confirm this to be Dragon Trail glass? I think they rather deinied it, but if anyone can point me to a source that clearly states it is Dragon Trail?

If you feel other brands is perfect, pls go for it. this phone isn't perfect for you. but i don't understand why it still so attractive to others. all the weekness you listed isn't a big deal. people want a good design and so solid phone, not a plastic phone. I trust Sony is a quality product. Plastic phone always need a cover because when they drop is end of their life.
guys lets hit the page as mush as we can because we are about to beat micromax phone in terms of most searched phone on gsmarena

1. that's why it's water-resistant, just rinse it with water, problem solved.
2. Im not sure about this, but still, SONY's display is undeniably good.
3. that's what u say. sony didnt specify the manufacturer of the glass, just stating it is durable as gorilla/dragontrail.
4. i thought that's part of the design? not everyone like curves.
5. for you perhaps
I'm really apple user but now i change my mind.i'm going to this now....! This is the best phone ever there made !!!!!! GRATE JOB SONY....keep it on keep it on!!!
Xperia Z supports microSD, up to 32 GB, as per gsmarena. but ZL supports 64 GB? Is there some mistake here? I thought even xperia Z supports 64 GB cards

no 2 you just follow the crowd.. bla3.. viewing angle without knowing what you are saying.
no 3 increase in hardness cause it more scratch resistance, but it also make it easier to crack. it is toughness that is important. you sure haven't learn Mechanics of Material in uni right? ;)
no 5 personal opinion.. boring..
And even if Samsung comes up with an OctaCore or 16cores the next time.. Im still not buying that cheap plastic crap.. Why?? Coz' I will bet my life that my Quadcore Desktop is way better than it.. So no thanks.. All this hype being twice the core from the last no. of cores they released the previous year is just but a marketing strategy.. Oh yeah Samsung is Smart.. But not on Innovation.. But on Marketing strategy and building Hype.. That's all there is to it.. Octa Core?!? If youre ignorant and know nothing about CPU and dont own your own quad core desktop or laptop then you wont even relate to this coz all ignorant people know is that "bigger is better!" - Try watching "Cloudy witha Chance of Meatballs" and youll see.. And to Samsung.. Please do some innovation and stop multiplying screen sizes and cores.. its not practical.. Maybe try putting a joystick back on your phones or maybe try making it waterproof as well (coz copying is what you're good at) or maybe try making your phones with a shape of a flower or butterfly.. Maybe then we can see an original.. :D
