Z2 has no screenprotector , nor has Z3 series. On Z/Z1/SP you could peel off the pre-installed screenprotector which also removed the SONY logo on the front.
In my opinion, Sony should stick to their current USP's and above all, improve them!
- There is no need for a 1080p on the Z4 compact, and 1440p on the Z4. They should stick to the current 720p and 1080p resolutions and further boosting the battery life to a level the competition only can dream of. (On Ultra and Tablet they should use QHD however).
- Second, they need to sue the whole mobile software camera department and hire new people who actually are capable of creating reasonable software algorithms. The camera of my Z2 on paper is a nice one, but in real life it's a complete joke. Since the Xperia Z the camera hasn't performed well.
- Third, they should improve quality control, the glass panels never align properly to the aluminium frame, terrible. Not to mention several other hardware issues that's been plaguing the Z series.
But this, ofcourse, won't be the deal, camera performance on Z4 series will still suck compared to what the hardware is capable of and the competition will offer better image quality. Also, the devices will heat up due to the high res screens, the glass panels still will be too fragile and waterproofing defects will be a common issue as well. On top of that, Sony doesn't know how to advertise their product and deliver it on time to important markets as USA hence they will again lose money. Stupid.
I wish they would simply use their brandnames like CYBERSHOT and WALKMAN to create something unique and distinguish themselves, that actually gets to the public audience.
hi, 12 Nov 2014no uuu do it properly z1 has the same plastci...broI have got the z3 compact for one month now. I haven't seen any plastic on it so far, only the frame. I will check again to make sure. You seem to be a sony expert so I better check.
please don't go for z models as they are releasing new models frequently which makes you to think you might have waited so you can bought the new one.. also there is no big jump from z1 to z3.. only thing is RAM..
xyz, 12 Nov 2014Do your homework properly. Sony has stopped putting plastic sheet over the display. Smhno uuu do it properly z1 has the same plastci...bro

Too many anti-sony fans, but you need to buck up with your stories.
And what about price?? Z3 is realy nice smartphone but is too expensive comparing to g3 for example...
ih, 12 Nov 2014Cheap low end is never betteryes it is because ill get updates first than u... and sony never uses good glasses..always a plastic on screen tu justify the scratch resitence....lol....plastic tooo.so sony overprice something that is cheap material tooo.take alook at the z1 and z3 why so overpriced...it has same features.......nothing new....
I also do not think Qi charging is better than Sony's magnetic dock. I like the Sony magnetic dock, and it allows you to charge with full high current, rather than the slower charging times with Qi.
Ayush01, 12 Nov 2014Godly phablet without a flash xD.Lol!thats why i wished for a same camera as Z4. need that flash***
sony needs better QC and better after sales services, not better design or screen or whatever.
hi, 12 Nov 2014sony is good but better moto g.......it is for the world.take this sammy fans and xperia fans.Cheap low end is never better
Magnetic port is much more power efficient and practical than Qi wireless charging! Please don't replace that!
AnonD-13148, 12 Nov 2014I agree with you. Compact is always smaller than the original, so the battery will be just und... moreThe screen size makes more of a difference than the resolution. About 28% larger screen means about 28% more power, all things equal; and the Z3's screen is brighter than the Z3C's, meaning even more power. Doubling the amount of pixels (but making them smaller) won't increase the power usage by that much.
