AnonD-59657, 16 Feb 2013Forget about HTC. They are dying soon.lol they are already dead... last year 8 out of 10 most popular phones sold was samsung.... htc long lost the android battle to samsung and sony.
Why do most of the phone companies look down on the African market?I mean whenever a new phone is released,all the good headphones and all are removed replaced with cheap stuff..We spend the money as well on the phones just as Europe and all. I think we also deserve the goodies....
I just hope that,when its released in Africa (Kenya). For once Sony leaves all the goodies in the box instead of replacing them with cheap headphones etc..
Denzo, 15 Feb 2013Wow €650!? And the 5 inch screen is low quality! I don't know. SgS IV or HTC for me if I go android HTC has the most pathetic camera quality. As for samdung just cheap plastic. These prices are fixed. They will drop in few months. I have seen samdung qualtity. is just like them pathetic..
Joe, 16 Feb 2013The problem with sony is that their phones are too expensive. If they want to get a fair share... moreare you kidding. the price of XZ is way fairer than that of IPhone5 and it features much better specs. and be sure the price will fall after a while and remember that GS3 had the same price at the time of its launch.
Joe, 16 Feb 2013The problem with sony is that their phones are too expensive. If they want to get a fair share... moreI strongly agreed that Sony always charge the consumers for premium price.
In other hand, Samsung makes the best smartphone with the most advance features in the world but charge at reasonable price.
The problem with sony is that their phones are too expensive. If they want to get a fair share of the mobile market esp. against apple and samsung they can start by significantly dropping the price of this phone and start selling them like pancakes.
One big mistake that Sony made in Xperia Z was not included the killing features like the DualQCore and 4G RAM. I guess Sony should refresh its Xperia Z before Samsung releases the S4 to have DualQCore and 4G RAM. For sure S4 will kill Xperia Z just a single click.
I still dont understand why people compare this phone to a yetto be released phone. When that Samsung s4 releases the compare these two. Till then accept the fact that sony has done a good job with this cell phone.
AnonD-79543, 15 Feb 2013I don't know where you get this, but I think more RAM means better battery life. No, more RAM uses more battery. On of the main reasons why apple always used so little in their iphones until it was desperately necessary. That and cost.
AnonD-80553, 15 Feb 2013I have doubts about that. Well, it depends on their definition of "power users", but... moreWe need to hold our breathes for an actual battery test assessment with this. "Turning off the apps while the screen is off" sounds a lot like Juice Defender Ultimate to me - it's not saving power while doing actual stuff with the phone.
Sony has a history of having terrible battery efficiency in their current models -so my friends who got these wonderful modern-designed units have been complaining.
Let's see how the XZ can hold at least 12 hours of actual continuous working time, not just the conservation of power while the screen is off.
Ferbuss, 15 Feb 2013Hi Anyone knows when this phone will be in US and if AT&T carrier will have .... I think May or June.

Denzo, 15 Feb 2013The other thing that kills me is how hype everyone is getting about dust and water proof. Hone... morere water proofness, because companies like sony and apple are probably fed up of people claiming the phone failed for reasons other than dropping them in the loo, so by actually making them water resistant, they are reducing the chances of this happening, although if a port is open, the water proofing will have no effect.
