great processor but why not QUAD-HD screen Sony?
Great Sony, I want you to look back to previous phone, please. It is Xperia Arc, it's camera shoot photo so nice. Please, hope you look back to the previous phone and you got it, the new idea will appear immediately to creat best thing next. Love Sony.
I am proud of Sony's Thought, haha. Doing wired and different from customers' thought, or you have no NewThings to realists? :-( . I hope Z4 not as previous phone that run too Bad while comparing to other phone. But you do it again, I think. please find a New Partner to face down your rival.
SONY Love You. Good Luck.
Way not 4 gb ram? 4gb ram will be for the next year? And in 10 years time I will have 14 gb ram?
Clinton, 31 Mar 2015The Z and Z1 are very much different.
Nothing close to each other except the same shape.
... moreSee I rather see it where the Z2 is where Sony really stepped up their game. And Z3 though not a major update was a good update in the right places.
And it was the Z/Z1 and then leading to the very strong Z2 that finally brought Sony from always being outdated and behind to right up near the top of the crowd fighting Samsung for best tech.
meh , 31 Mar 2015only your though. I'm using the note 4 exynos and the battery life is disappointing. While gal... moreNo. It's only in your opinion it has no uses.
And the Note 4 has great battery life. You have a defective device, battery, buggy software, or are lying.
5.1? I doubt that. I don't see why they would take the display size down.
And hopefully Sony has a large enough battery to counteract the S810.
And I really hope it's not the same exact sensor all over again. And still possibly no OIS? Come on Sony! You have much superior image processing in actual cameras. And have great cameras.
So why not take advantage of these great sensors. Why is their auto mode processing so.....eh?
And what about that new image sensor we were seeing? Where is it?
I however expect a beautiful thin device, with a gorgeous display, great looking UI, and hopefully speakers the best the M9 like the Z3 did the M8.
AnonD-130551, 31 Mar 2015The Z3 is still the best phone on the market. How does putting a faster chip in the best phone... moreIt would only be best in your opinion. Not objectively.
The S6 and Note 4 have most of the objective advantages. Even the S5 edges past the Z3 in many key areas.
In that respect it's only the Z3 that really surpasses other devices and rivals the S6/Note 4 right now.
And while bashing and incorrect I think their point was the S810 is not the best around in steady performance or power consumption and heat.
And it will definitely not help the Z4 with battery life.
samwais, 31 Mar 2015so its a xperia z3 with snapdragon 810? haha rofl of a phone company.. Xperia phones are such ... moreThe Z3 is still the best phone on the market. How does putting a faster chip in the best phone on the market with the best battery life make it worse?
Thank god it's not QHD :)
I think sony should use the new exynos chip it's much better than the snapdragon 810 ...
Anonymous, 31 Mar 2015ha ha.your samsung cant bend the laws of physics.qhd is useless in terms of display and batter... moreFirstly I agree that the current set of apps cant utilize the QHD screen fully. But points that you must remember.
Hold the HD and QHD devices side by side. Then the difference is clearly visible.
And the QHD phones are more future proof.
Not much of a flagship apart from Qualcomm's chipset and the camera, i'm looking forward to the Z4 Ultra, can't wait!
Anonymous, 31 Mar 2015I work for sony, don't believe a word of this bench marking data, the Z4 will be the most ... morePlease do something about the audio quality and output with headphones plugged in z1,z2,z3 are below average.
AnonD-111968, 31 Mar 2015Dude it's not ridiculous, it's engineering comment: really S6 WEB BROWSING is 8h 44m vs Z3 12... morelook mr engineer i was talking about the qhd and fhd displays of the s6 and m9 and comparing their video playback and web browsing ratings accordingly and i happen to know the qhd in samsung is providing more time being smaller in battery departement.And coming to sony it has a whopping 550 mah more capacity than s6 so i guess battery backup would be more. The point i am trying to make here is there isn't that much of battery drainage by the s6 qhd compared to the fhd of htc m9.
Anonymous, 31 Mar 2015ha ha.your samsung cant bend the laws of physics.qhd is useless in terms of display and batter... moreif you are unaware, s6 supports gear vr so it is suitable for this beast.. also display is 20% efficient than s5's display...
so its a xperia z3 with snapdragon 810? haha rofl of a phone company.. Xperia phones are such a failure its making me cry
Anonymous, 31 Mar 2015ha ha.your samsung cant bend the laws of physics.qhd is useless in terms of display and batter... moresnapdragon 810 has many issues right now
htc m8 has smaller battery capacity than htc m9 but the battery on the htc m9 is weaker because of that sd810.
lg g flex2 has smaller screen but the battery perfromance is weaker than the first g flex because of the sd810.
after lg admitted the over heating and other issues on sd 810
now lg decided not to go with sd810 for its flagship g4.
also one reason samsung did not put sd 810 to s6and s6 edge.
sony z4 will face the same issue with g flex 2 and htc m9.
that's not a big difference
infact g3 has a bit curved arc shaped so it does feel comfortable to hold.
