Sony was first to introduce sweep panorama and 3D panorama. But I prefer the panorama software on Samsung. But I still go in for Sony camera. With the new intelligent mode, its even better. Talking about IR, I was limiting myself to modern day android. Otherwise I'll still go in for Sony Ericsson p900.

Heretic, 27 Jun 2013Sony xperia designs look boring, as boring as the Galaxy S line and the Lumia phones Sony designe looks elegant for me.

Samsung is very good at marketing. Look at how they make a lot of noice before any release. Let's take the s4 and s3 for example. Look at the trailer teaser videos even before their release. Open every web page and their image is there. Which is why a lot of people get to know about it and thinks its the best without making any research. HTC was good at that but they eventually stopped. Which lead to their downfall. As much as I love Sony, HTC has the best UI especially in gingerbread.
But putting all things together I'll go for Sony base on facts.
HTC built xperia X1. But Sony built xperia x2. Check the differences in specs and see the reason why I'll always go for Sony.

Any old Symbian Nokia with IR port can do it. The first 12 megapixel camera? Sony Ericsson Satio or, hmmm, Samsung Pixon 12, maybe? Water resistance, removable cover - Ericsson R250, Siemens M35 etc... But you're right, Xperia Z and Galaxy S4 have the same camera, Sony makes it. I think they make cameras for iPhone too. But in all reviews Sony's camera is below average and Samsung's camera is great (and I'm a Nokia N8 user, not a Samsung fanboy). It's like Sony can't make decent software (processing, algorithms) for their own cameras. I really, really hope Honami will be better.
They must be stupid to put the camere in that position - it'll be covered with fingers almost all the time.

Plus LG is the worst at updating its phones!

Sony always take the lead for others to copy
Sony is the first to use IR remote control ( xperia tablet S), copied by HTC and Samsung.
The first with floating touch( xperia sola), copied by Samsung.
The first to introduce 12megapixel camera
The First to introduce water resistance with removable cover(xperia v) copied by s4.
The first to go 13 megapixel( xperia T), copied by s4
I would not doubt if Sony produces camera for samsung and lg.
Let's talk about the walkman with clear bass, clear audio+, xloud, 3D surround sound,(better than beats audio)
The bravia, Triluminous display, x-reality, No image is better than this.
It is out of ignorance that people blindly follow the cheap plastic made Samsung. LG is even better than Samsung.
But Sony is the best.

matvoo, 27 Jun 2013Imean 3000 for LG l5The LG L5 is a 800mhz single core
LG phones are so overrated like like the l5 got 6000 on antutu and Sony's 1ghz single could get that score
I see there is a huge fight between Sony and LG fans. What I see now is, that LG is going up. They make cool looking smart phones, they are making phones with high end specs, which can rival Samsung's high-end ones. They are starting to make phones with removable battery too. :D(Optimus G Pro). They are using some great stuff as Samsung, the king of smart phones does. The battery life of LG phones are starting to be better. Now what LG should do, is to make waterproof devices, and great camera center ones.
Now about Sony. Sony is focusing at making smart phones with waterproofing capability, and they are focusing at making devices with attractive design(not for me though). They are trying to make really slim devices, but because of this their phones are lacking good battery life. See the new Sony Xperia Z Ultra. They made a mistake with that model. Sony now wants to make an awesome camera device. I think they will make it! I like that Sony now is making many phones, for many people. This is a thing which Samsung is doing, and they are selling a lot of smart phones. So I believe Sony can grow too, but they need to make smart phones with GOOD battery life, and removable battery. For God's sake, Sony is a JAPANESE company, Japan is known for advanced technology. They can do better. If the less known, Fujitsu can make really awesome devices, then Sony why not? Sony could come up with something special(example add fingerprint sensor on their smart phones, make more Dual Sim phones).
I say both Sony and LG are making good phones. If you ask me, I would go for an LG instead of Sony.
