Well, I was waiting for the Z4C, but considering the issues with SD810, I will not be getting a Sony this year. I just broke my ZR's screen, and the digitizer no longer works! What a mess! So now I'm rocking a Moto E (and the screen looks just as good overall if not better IMHO), and waiting for the Zenfone 2
Getting either 550ML or 551ML, not sure yet, but if they can keep the Padfone X's efficiency, I'll go with 551ML...I may even be looking at the Zenfone Zoom!
I really wish there is a home button. Apart from home screen and album viewing (where the keys are transparent), virtual keys consume 1/10 of the screen in all other apps....The size of the screen is effectively 4.7 inch most of the time.....
destro, 16 Mar 2015It has been Sooooo Loooong... Since January 2013, barely 2 years look like a Loooong time nowIt has been long because they launch phones every 6 months. This will be the 5th Z series phone that looks the same. That is completely unacceptable to carry on the same design for your flagship devices.
Z, Z1, Z2, Z3 and now Z4.
Keep in mind not everyone upgrades phones every 2 years. Moreover, I'm only talking about the design of the phone which still looks like the original Z (based on the leak).
I am a Z3 Compact user and I am glad I didn't wait for newer generations... I am enjoying the heck out of my phone, and I even ender up testing its waterproof capabilities in the shower, pools, and ocean, without any issues so far...
I don't mind if they stick to the similar design because it is actually a really attractive one... the problem is that they are removing one of the most practical features, the magnetic port. I bought 4 adapters for it and also my car stereo (XSP-N1BT) has one, and I use it daily... it is extremely useful and in my opinion even better than a wireless pad charger because with the magnetic adapter I can use the phone on my hands while it's charging. Additionally I can use USB OTG, or MHL while I charge it through the more efficient magnetic port (which btw accept Quick Charge 2.0)
So removing that port is a step back. Hopefully the Z4 really is an amazing phone, because right now, I have absolutely no interest in phones other than my Z3C.
BTW, the Galaxy S5 has a flap and no alternative for charging, so you MUST wear off the flap over time...

Hosseinguero 95, 16 Mar 2015everyone shut up, sony z4 is going to be an awesome phone. cant wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YEs it will... Z4 is gonna Rock cell Phone Industry !
Hmm... I'd say either this is fake, or aspect ratio of original image has been distorted terribly. Look where the phone/messages shortcuts are located, add a bit more space with software buttons, and you get what looks more like a 4:3 screen (which would be really weird for a phone).
sanjay, 16 Mar 2015Everybody is keeping 2 connections now a days, in India as well as in most part of other asian... moreBoth the Z3 and the S5 have dual sim versions with the exact same hardware as the single sim ones.
