Too many handhelds.. Same purpose. Text, call, chat,videos, mp3, internet. Same old story.

First of all Crapple didnt show new way with smart phone. They jumped on the bandwaggon at the early stages. They didnt start it but they helped with popularity because people are believe crapple is a good company. By their name, money, and power is what did that. Samsung has brought out the first in almost every mega pixel update to a phone and it wasnt just pixel count. They were the best or among the best and have had better camers then almost every sony camera. Samsung brought large amoleds and HD to phones as well

Samsung is just famous in recent year after Apple showed people with the new way of using Smartphone and again just to mention Sony used to show us the way of using the smartphone too with their WALKMAN and Cybershot. And honestly SAMSUNG never show ppl of this world the new way of using smartphone! Oh I forget SAMSUNG is very famous because of iPhone if there is no iPhone it will never exist SAMSUNG (I mean SAMSUNG will never famous today)
I really don't want to make war because of any brand name phone but You are too much !
Hey,PEOPLE!!O2 in UK has iphone 4s 16gb for 599,529 for Xperia Z(best phone today) it is great price!)
With all the features of Xperia Z has, I think the price is OK and not over.
Londoner, 01 Feb 2013i have my Samsung Plasma for 7 years now it is rock solid. if it is not quality and what it is... morei think those empty headed people you say must be categorized as iphone owners as they pay the highest price for the specs of a mid range phone (sorry if you own iphone). and i think we must wait and see what would happen at the end of this year and we must keep our eyes on IFA and the new flagships of both companies. i like them both but to be honest i like Sony more than Sammy. i'll definitely buy this phone and if i see S4 is way better than this maybe i change it, as easy as this. but for now, this is my beloved :D

Galaxy range proves that.
i dont want to be rude, but only rich ppl go for the higher price cuz their brains are full of soil not actual brains. it is like buying Mercedes instead of higher and better quality Lexus
Londoner, 01 Feb 2013we will see time will tell same was being said about Nokia when first and 2nd iphone was... morei think you don't want to see that apple is doing the same mistake of Nokia. nokia didn't change its OS and apple don't want to change its design and it is getting more and more reiterative and boring. and about Sammy: the main thing that caused 90% (as you say) of british people buy its tv is its lower price in comparison to Sony. thats exactly the case with its phones except for those high-end ones. and thats because the material is cheaper and the device's life will be shorter. don't forget quality comes with high price and still there are lots of people who wont sacrifice quality for paying lesser money.
emadshiny, 01 Feb 2013you're trying to make your speech beautiful "Sony is dead". hahaha, no one can belie... morewe will see
time will tell
same was being said about Nokia when first and 2nd iphone was launched.
90% of ppl in UK own Samsung TVs and it is just the beginning.

Sony is still one of the best among electronic companies. do you know Apple's first models of iphone were adopted from Sony's designs and Sammy tries to copy the designs and features of Sony tvs. Sony is one of the greatest in design and build quality and will not die easily. you must wait and see. xperia Z is just the beginning. oops, too long.
emadshiny, 01 Feb 2013don't worry. sony is just starting to take its real place among others. Sammy holds this place... moreSony died when ipod was launched. Although was first to bring out mp3 players but they were stupid and ignorant and never advertised it.
Nokia and Sony days are gone.
Sony had better mobile phones before thy bloody aquired Ericsson. they csannot come back because their marketing strategy is worse than any other company in the world.
Apple Marketing is King and so Samsungs.
Samsung will stay King for 5 or more years to come.
After Samsung and Apple, Lenove will rise.

Sammy holds this place just for a year and its not difficult to beat it. Nokia is rising again and be sure that if apple doesnt change its strategy will be defeated soon. by the way, Sony is Sony.
emadshiny, 01 Feb 2013thats exactly the point. i don't know why everybody looks astonished. look at butterfly. it fe... moreif specs really mattered then noone would buy any iphone.
Nexus 4 should have crushed every other phone. it is not the specs it is the Branding. Samsung is KING now, Sony is soon Joining Nokia for the battle who will be taken over first. Nokia will be aquired by Microsoft and Sony by Apple.
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2013Samsung are going to have to come up with something special to beat this. It just oozes qualit... moreif samsung is clever enough they will not go for specs this time, instead they will improve their build quality and change plastic to something else and better battery promise. all Samsung has to do this give us Galaxy S3s with different look and feel with KEY Lime Pie as standard. Galaxy S3 is still selling like Hot Cakes so Samsung Should not be rushing because Even S2 is still selling very well.
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2013Well for me, i'm always on the go. I work on the field , rain or shine. So this one is a plus ... morewell it suits ppl like you and i dont think there are many of you around who would want this at such a price. why would u need 1080 screen on a mobile phone? how is it justified? these manufacturers are bumping up all the specs that should be for a telly and squeezes it into 4 to 6 inch screen and they never bother to care about battery life or new battery technology. doesnt matter how good specs are, camera shutter will lack speed and accuracy of idevices, battery will be as crap as iphone 5 and nexus 4 and so on.
NZE 1, 01 Feb 2013Let me get this straight, 1080p screen, 2 gig ram, frame comparable to that of a car, water re... moreyou want Quad Core and 2GB of Ram, latest Updates Guaranteed, Nexus 4 costs only £279.
Why pay double only for better graphics and being waterproof and dust proof...
Motorola tried waterproof had excellent advertisements for it didnt even sell 2 millions at nearly half the price of this. where do u think this gonna end up. practicality is more important than some lousy specs.
Let me get this straight, 1080p screen, 2 gig ram, frame comparable to that of a car, water resistant, dust resistant, quad core with adreno 320 gpu, dragon trail glass( much much tougher than gorilla) plus other features yet some people actually complain about the price of this ??? I really don't blame you guys to be honest but sony, for giving there all to satisfy your needs forgetting the world really don't appreciate good guys but rip-offs. LONG LIVE PLAY, LONG LIVE SONY.
