this a warning to sammy... well sammy still has the fastest software updates and the smoothest project butter... but this could be it... the galaxy killer...
just hope sammy comes out with a killer design then no worries...
marre4096, 06 Jan 2013Can someone post a REASONABLE explanataion as of why Sony has discarded the camera shutter but... moreKindly take a look on that link and maybe you will have second thoughts about what you were thinking. Look at the upper part of the phone, there's a button like structure and that is the camera key. The hole near the camera is the flash and some might have been thinking that it's a mic but i bet not. It's too big to be a mic. Look at the Xperia V, the flash looks the same as the one on the Xperia Z.
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2013i know and i agree with you...i dont like the plastic material feeling either, but i have a ga... moreAnd when it comes to the S3's quality? I don't think you were right because I had an S3 and I sold it to buy my One X+ because I dropped it and the screen cracked! Is that what you call a phone with high endurance? Dude, I was only able to sell it less than the price. Maybe S2 has a better build quality but not the S3. Now about the Xperia Z's design? Xperia Z doesn't look like an iPhone? It doesn't even have the physical button? maybe you would like to take a look on your favorite company? Samsung? haha! we all have our own taste and I wouldn't mind if you want Samsung, because I've used a couple of their devices and I still love Sony's quality. ;)
Jake, 05 Jan 2013since when exynos is best ? Currently the best is snapdragon S4 pro . The pro had real devic... moreYeah, I agree. S4 Pro is currently the best and now, the Exynos A15 architecture is gonna be out and is reportedly about to be used as the chipset for the upcoming GS4, S4 Prime is always there to the rescue. Currently S4 Pro is the best and it is just up to the companies that use it to optimize the chipset and bring out the best in it. Like what Sony did to its S3 chipsets on their Xperia S! When Xperia S came out, none of the phones from Samsung was able to beat its performance! Not even the S2 even when the S2 had been upgraded to ICS and the Xperia S was still using the 2.3 version of android. Go and optimize the S4 Pro at its best Sony! ;)
Do you really think that Xperia Z doesn't have a flash? Check the specs sheet of the phone. And one of the photos, if you've seen the back panel of the phone, there's like a hole near the camera, that might be the led flesh! Do you think Sony will dig its grave by putting all the great specs in one phone and forget the flash? Think about it man!
The number of comments on this device. Oh wow.its not even released yet
John the Babtist, 06 Jan 2013Finally an eye turner as nice as iphone 5 ,A classy hi-end monolith design by Sony.It took the... moreIt's first Sony only phone. Previous models were SE models renamed Sony. Now they have xperia branch in Japan headquarters.
Is it kinda disaster? 3 months ago, there were reported that Sony detuned the Exmor RS stacked CMOS due to the design failure...
I am not so excited.
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2013no iphonish? maybe lg ish??i think sony is more appealing.
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2013juggernaut?? hahaha fanboy detected!!yes i am fanboy. because i did not experience any problem, from cybershot to xperia.base on experience. not just a hype of your plastic and ugly. haha., i wish they create galaxy vacuum with 100 cores.
Eikcam, 06 Jan 2013Nokia Pureview 808 would like to say Hi!That eccentric looking thing with extremely low performance and ridiculous OS does not qualify as a smartphone. Maybe lumia 920, if it's weight to battery ratio made any sense. And the size as well. Nokia need to start using high tech materials, like Samsung, the magnesium bracket of the Note 2 make it very slim and light and still very strong. Or like the frame Sony is using in this xperia z. Nokia is supposed to be the veteran here and yet the best they can do is thick heavy plastic? Where's the innovation Nokia?
Eikcam, 06 Jan 2013Nokia Pureview 808 would like to say Hi!Pure view? That bulky camera? Sure.
The problem would be price...
Could they price it to compare with samsung's products?
Only front of the phone is just ok.sides and back are below to everage,sorry sony....strange before you were given good designs... waiting for ZL,360dg views...
