This sounds a very exciting phone in many ways. The battery appears to be inadequate though. Given all the demands that will be made on it will it be powerful enough? The big breakthrough needs to be better batteries. Motorola set the pace last year. I fear this will be very quickly overtaken, especially by the time it becomes available. They seem to have sacrificed usage for this silly 'thinness' race manufacturers seem to have got involved with.

Narrow angle for sure has its own advantages.
Tis a great gadget how much does it cost anywhere in Africa or Kenya. I can't wait to ave one
it is not only a super smartphone. we can be sure now that it is the first quad core android phone with that high quality finsihing like apple's iphone. it will not die suddenly like sumsung gadgets. sony always offer quality phones and as xperia s was matching samsung s3 performance for users, the xperia z will be terminating this stupid plastic rubbish called galaxy's.
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2013I quite agree with u. Instead of analysing phones, GSM Arena end up trying to force SONY etc. ... moreI GSMARENA guys are good they make manufacturers think out of the box. The Sony Xperia Z has the best hardware but then compared to Galaxy Note 2
the Note still Rocks coz of smart stay n the pe stylus. You can do a lot more with the Note that Xperia Z. Stepping into a meeting, no need for papers.
samsung galaxy s4 will have a 5.1" screen just to one up sony. :-)
Why Xperia Z supports microSD up to 32GB but Xperia ZL supports 64GB. I'm very confused about that
Gris Bleu, 08 Jan 2013Though it is made by plastic i hope the glass look back side won't be easy to get scracth.The Sony C66 Xperia Z has a tough fibre polyamide frame and durable tempered glass on front and back which much stronger than conventional glass.
So the back side is real glass!

Pls stop that. Tell people what is there, and allow them to make choice.
