Since ICS phones need larger internal storage instead of using larger sd card capacity. People need bigger space for apps.

Sony has a deal with box.com, and its 50GB FOR LIFE. I already activated one account there when i had Xperia Pro, and we still have 3 sony phones in our household i can activate it on.
One disadvantage on box.com is the file size limit of 250MB, that does not cut it for for example FHD recorded video files, but these are too big to use on cloud i think (and why would we put personal party videos on cloud anyway) so it doesnt matter IMHO. Just dont buy a FHD phone without memory card slot and problem solved.

You can use cloud only for 2 years. Just see the competition. Samsung, HTC have phones with 32 and 64 GB of internal storage+64 GB of memory storage(Samsung).

blitz_21x, 03 Jan 2013because you can add up to 32gb by micro sd card..32 GB micro SD is so 2010. Modern phones can support 64 GB of memory cards. How they want to compete with Samsung if they are behind them?
blitz_21x, 03 Jan 2013because you can add up to 32gb by micro sd card..16+32 = Still very small. My phone in 2009 (N900) had 32GB internal, 27 of it user available, and it supported 32GB card in addition. Now, 32GB cards were not yet available that time but were confirmed to work in N900 later on. We should expect much more now, and definetly not less, with FHD video recording and whatever else we didnt have in 2009.
Anyway i believe this to be wrong info, i am quite sure it will suport 128GB cards, or at least 64GB.
Mobilemaster, 03 Jan 2013Why only 16 GB of internal storage?because you can add up to 32gb by micro sd card..
WOW! Samsung got beat in exactly what I needed. Only Samsung seemed most probable to mfg a dual SIM super high end smart phone, but voila! SONY have smashed em to it. What a relief regarding the much superior UI,body,audio and camera that SONY have over Samsung! Can't wait to get my hands on this. On TV out argument! r u guys saying that there is none serious? 1080p video shoots & 13MP worth of HD photos with no output? come on! Ofcourse there is HDMI or MHL!! The only soft bone I pick is dat the single SIM ZL has a 32Gb storage version while the dual SIM Z is stuck on 16Gb. Not so much a problem coz of the expansion though! 2Gb Ram,Quad Krait,FM,HD 5" display,etc goodies + ultimately_DUAL SIM?? Perfect stuff!
Correct yourselves. It has a 13mp camera but it's resolution is limited to 12mp like Lumia 920 or 808 pureview. The asian version of the phone might have dual sim but No LTE. Where the other one will have LTE. The Other one will also be fatter and heavier. This phone might have 7.2mm thickness. And it will have a smaller battery than the other version.
fush n chups, 03 Jan 2013The camera is actually 12mp. Do the math and you wont get 13mp.Actually its 13MP but you will only get 12MP in HDR Mode or Superior Auto Mode.
I was really looking forward for this mobile phone. But it's specifications aren't that impressive. It's should have supported up to a maximum of 64Gb SDcard. The S4 chipset and Adreno 320 are powerful but not enough to take down the next Iphone and Samsung Galaxy S4 as claimed by many web sites. It won't be able to beat the current Iphone 5 itself. But still, these specifications are just rumours but seems realistic. Got to wait for the real specifications. But I'm not expecting something better.
GSM arena, you yourselves posted that the xperia z would be 1.7ghz krait but you write 1.5ghz here. You also said it be water proof but you don't say so here when it would be the main unique feature of this phone when compared to all the other five inchers coming up this year. Also don't you think that the Heavier ZL would be dual sim instead of the Z.
now Sony is in a right track, just he must keep it up
The camera is actually 12mp. Do the math and you wont get 13mp.
