WTF?!? Samsung really going for OctaCore?!? I mean Seriously?!? An Apple Iphone 5 has a dual core.. Most high end Smartphone nowadays have Quadcore.. And just to say they are better they will release an Octacore phone?!? I have an $1100 worth of Desktop and I can play lots of heavy games like Crysis 1,2 at full specs. and many other games.. I dont think this Octacore can even play Rayman Origins for cryin' out loud.. Will we be able to play Diablo 3 in this phone with full settings and stuff?? Are you going to set up a server with this phone?? Come on.. This is just but a joke.. If Samsung does go for it though, that just means they cant think of anything to copy anymore.. Coz they're just making everything multiply itself to make it seem like an innovation.. What a Joke.. Samsung Fanboys will disagree though.. But give some time to think about it and you might realize how pathetic their products are.. Feel sad for the fanboys.. They will waste money again.. Oh well.. Haters gonna hate.. ^^.
Still nothing spectacular about this phone.
1. All glass body (like a brittle iPhone) It can catch smudges easily like the disgusting demo phone at CES last week. It really is so slimy I used a glove just to test it.
2. TFT screen. The worst LCD technology ever in history. Eats power twice as much as a SuperLCD2 and has Very bad viewing angles. Never change Sony...
3. Dragontrail glass isn't really strong (the drop test is a HOAX) Actually it is weaker than Gorilla glass,
Hardness test (Vickers) , Dragontrail: 595 to 673, Gorilla Glass: 622 to 701 source is Wikipedia. Also Gorilla Glass 3 is coming.
4. The screen has bad design. It's screen is FLAT like the LG unlike the screen design of GS3, NOTE2, HTCONEX, ONEX+, DNA that has curvy ergonomic screen glass that is pleasant to touch.
5. On screen home keys. ( bad idea )
Everybody please check out dragontrail glass xperia z used for its screen. way tougher than gorrila glass 2. help anyone please try to convince me not to buy this phone when it is out in the market
Its the hottest smartphone, no matter what phone u may compare it to, it wins. Second best looking smartphone is the iphone 4. U have to love sony!
its simply the best phone on the market at this hour, not only for his hardwere specification and amazing screen but also for his quality material he is build.
Its a phone with style
This phone is not coming to Mexico and it's a shame because it's a beautiful phone. We gonna get stuck with the ZL.
rbsony, 14 Jan 2013you're too objective! you sounds as if you are the one creating those cores, my concern is so ... moreSamsung's 8 core CPU will use less power. It's working as the Arm Big little CPU, Google it if you want. People these days want a phone which they don't need to charge every 2 days! This new CPU has the solution, and imagine if Samsung will put a 3000 mAh of battery on the Galaxy S4. That would be the new king with the help of the new CPU. Samsung is smart.
It's disappointing Xperia Z does not come with Dual Sim as earlier advertised.
As of now i have a Samsung Galaxy S2, i mean its one of the best phones i have ever used, i have never ever lagged , i have the latest android version & the phone is just so amazing and has a great build and feel, but the plastic build is really off putting, i mean i was going to wait and get the Galaxy S4, but after seeing the Xperia Z i can't stop thinking about it, like seriously the design is amazing! Really futuristic and the fact that its made out of dragontrail glass & its waterproof puts it at such an advantage and separates it to a leauge of its own. Not only that but the front facing 1080P camera, 1080P screen & backfacing 1080P camera with 13.2MP is such a delight! coming from the S2 this will be the ideal phone for me, for both speed, convenience and durability. Cant wait to buy it next month!
This phone looks rrally great, simple yet elegant. Stylush on de Sony way, always good. Such a screen is way too big for me, but I'm sure this phone will sell good.
Ok guys,check out this link (drop test)
The phone is a rock!!
Color variations limited. Colors suck. Wont buy till they bring better colors.
To be honest i think its a pretty sick phone. 13.1 MP camera..now come on people thats amazing!!
