Makes me wonder how much money they are saving for keeping the omni-balance design 4 models in a role. Also how much pre-made glass, metal power button and other design components they have left over after the Z1 to justify the lack of change.
... should really do the music player and smartphone combo like what apple and Samsung did. Anything to make a good enough return so they can invest, make design/innovative changes and keep loyal customers happy.
ithehappy, 20 Apr 2015Same old ugly design. Learn from samsung, Sony. Samsung S6 looks way better than this.yeh, like an iphone. LOL
After its release and seeing how almost IDENTICAL it is to Z3, I will not be surprised if Sony will finally LET GO its mobile division. It makes me feel SAD that the upgrade is very SUBTLE. I am expecting Sony to make it big and show surprises this time, since they have to play their cards well to RESCUE the DYING mobile division. Maybe nothing's wrong with this one but just short of almost everybody's expectations. The battery capacity is even decreased, still no OIS given that they are the supplier of cam sensors, no QHD screen given that they're among who first released 4k TVs. I mean, they have almost all the ACES to be on top but why NOT utilize them? I'm a fan of Sony who is ready to wave goodbye to it. Still hoping for the best and for more surprises. We'll see if this is similar to their international release.
The 'Cooking Mode' has to be the front runner for 'The Innovation Award 2015'!
Where is technological advance in this one compare with Z3 ?
If Sony want to ask more money for Z4 they need to offer better devices. Better camera, better battery, better resistant body and much better fixing services.
buut, 20 Apr 2015Actually it's the upgraded sensor so maybe actually it will be a great camera now!New info shows that we most probably won't even be able to get our grubby pawns on the Z4, but rather another flagship in May...
LOL! I find this phone boring, i'll stick with my current Xperia. No buying until a new flagship phone from Sony is worth my MONEY.
buut, 20 Apr 2015Actually it's the upgraded sensor so maybe actually it will be a great camera now!New info : Apparently the Z4 is exclusive for the Japan market, this will not be launched internationally, which is why it was a rather quiet release. There is another flagship pending for the international market in May...we will have to wait and see. Personally, for now, I won't be looking forward to anything unless it's running the SD820.
Nickolai, 20 Apr 2015Where's the Compact? :-oThere's no compact according to what I read on another phone site.
whts wrong with u sony hardly waiting for z4 since 4 months and now the same old thing with reduction of battery fck....dont want to waste my money on z4...... no fingure print sensor..bad battery same design now upgradation.... z3 processing speed is enough dont wanna more speed we want new innovation like fingure print xeon flash metal body better cam n battery...but same old thing beautiful design with ugly bazel...wtf sony
thenerd, 20 Apr 2015over 500PPI? Sorry, 400ppi. 300+ppi like iPhone 5 is perfect.
Dave, 20 Apr 2015810 and 3GB of ram. Haters gonna hate!Orly? Add overheating and the damn throttling of cpu which gives you lag when cpu overheats.
I really hope they aren't using the same camera sensor as in the Z2/Z3 because they sucked. The displays as well. I had the Z3 Compact: would have been the perfect phone if not for the shitty camera/display and the heating issues. The battery lasted longer than in the Note 4.
This year, the Galaxy S6 seems the phone to beat. And the phone I'm gonna get next.
