Anonymous, 27 Aug 2015screen to body ratio isn't everything but S6 is more compact due to curved edged design. Z3 ... moreWe're talking about bezels here, not the size. And the Z3+ has stereo speakers unlike S6.
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2015Funny you call the Z5 has thick and ugly bezels, but say S6 has thin bezels? Sorry to say, but... morescreen to body ratio isn't everything
but S6 is more compact due to curved edged design.
Z3 is still like a rectangular brick....so handling is not as good as S6
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2015Z1..2...3..4..5...8...10..1000 same boring designHow many ways can you design a square box?
I am just looking for good specs..
why smartphones nowadays don't have lens cover???
so will it be waterproof??
How I wish Sony will make this phone with these things underneath:
- 4K Display
- Snapdragon 820 (Octacore CPU)
- 4GB RAM
- 32GB ROM and memory expansion/ built in 128GB non-expandable (no other variants)
- 5,000 MAh built-in Li-Po battery
- Metallic back
- Improved camera performance
- Latest Android version
For sure if these things are present Apple, Samsung, LG, HTC and all the other OEMs will lose the battle for the best smartphone of the year!

Nobody you know, 27 Aug 2015Why you all flame the Sony design? It's pretty good and minimalistic. Porsche 911 also looks... moreSony's design is the the most beautiful in the market, elegant, strong, magnificent, the only problem that Sony should deal with(in my opinion)is some extra bezeles and its phones will be totally perfect,go on Sony we love you.
AnonD-407326, 27 Aug 2015Looks like they've retained the gigantic, Apple-like top and bottom bezels, making a very ugly... moreFunny you call the Z5 has thick and ugly bezels, but say S6 has thin bezels? Sorry to say, but the Z3+ has 70.7% screen to body ratio while S6 has 70.5% screen to body ratio, so virtually the same amount of bezels. Do some research next time :)
AnonD-402280, 27 Aug 2015Amend. You said it right. There are people in this world that will never be satisfied no mat... moreHaha Yes. Strange World. I get your point, they would say that FHD is no match compared to 2K even if there is only a very subtle diff. Now that they are offered with 4K, they would say that they wouldn't need it bec. it will just drain the battery.
There will never ve contentment in this world only until, when people realize that it's gone.
now you are back in game Sony if this is reality it will be a game changer
Amend. You said it right. There are people in this world that will never be satisfied no matter how good it is. last year they wanted 2k display, now Sony give 4k, but people want 2k this year. Strange world.
Sony Z5+ is gonna make the cell phone market tremble! Hehe
Damn, that is ugly.
This will Surely ROCK!! If and only if... Everything will be polished.
-Unparalleled camera performance (improved software, I really don't get it why they couldn't standout given they have all the goodness of alpha and RX cameras)
-still long battery life
I have no problem with the design for as long as they still look beautiful combined with premium materials, it's their signature design anyway. Sam/htc/apple phones resemble their predecessors because it's their blueprint and signature, just like how they do in sportscars or designer bags.
