AnonD-115286, 30 Jun 2013OLED is better than LED? No Then LED is better than OLED? No as well What about LCD vs LED?... moreTotally agreed. Comparing LCD with LED is like comparing 2 same shirts with different material. Say, cotton and polyester. Both have its pros and cons and at the end of the day, you will choose what's most comfortable for you to wear. Same goes with displays, you will choose whats most comfortable for you eyes. Its just my 2 cents. =)
I agree, only Samsung will never learn how to create great looking devices! Samsung's features that were put on the S4 came from LG and Sony so Sammy is nowhere near the word "original" nor "innovative" because it wasn't theirs in the first place. Honami is the bomb that will end S4 and Note 3's success especially if the camera will produce on par quality images with the Pureview camera of Nokia.

Then LED is better than OLED? No as well
What about LCD vs LED?
They are different screen/display technology, each of them have its strength and weakness, OLED is just a newer/younger display technology. Though OLED is still have plenty room for OEM to improve/enhance it while LED/LCD are not. Many ppl think that OLED is better because of OEM's marketing, title like "New technology", "Innovation" are all just marketing terms. New technology doesn't mean it is surely better than the old one, even both A and B display using the same technology can end up A is far better than B because of "cost vs quality".
So in the end, it just a matter of preference for us to choose, different OEM's display have different set of "setting" like saturation, contrast and etc, but none of them will ever came close to the "God's setting"/the reality due to current technology limitation, so again, choice, as none are perfect.
Also OLED can't be used for water-resistance or water proofed device because it is "Organic" (Organic LED). That"s why you will not found any water-proofed OLED device in the market.
And even as if, one OEM has integrated/combined almost all "best features" in a gadget, what will happen? Obviously, it will cost a lot more....
Nothing is perfect in the world, everything comes with a price/trade-off, so just get the one that suits most your needs and preferences, and that is the best smartphone to you.

What is so different about this or special? You are proving to be a hype master. I aint no Samsung or HTC advocate but at least I know what their brand is, to me this is just another dull uninspiring rectangle.
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2013The sensors on top of the phone are placed differently for the first 2 pics and the last 3 pic... moreDamn, I've been dumb.:P
The first 2 pics are for the docomo version while the last 3 have sony branding indicating they are from the international version.

These are the things that sony users appreciate and that cannot be found in a samsung phone.

What happens when one want water resistance high MP camera super amoled?
The sensors on top of the phone are placed differently for the first 2 pics and the last 3 pics. :-)
But I hope honami turns out to be something gorgeous like this and has a xenon.
HoldEm, 30 Jun 2013Xperia Z also will have Snapdragon 800. But Samsung has the same GS4 look but only with a Snapdragon 800 under the hood, Same name GS4 but rugged that they added a name at the end called Active, another is S4 Zoom, and S4 Mini so what else should be there?

A soldier will rather have a Jeep or Tank rather than a race car too because they often need to driving at off-road area. Veyron Burgatti is the fastest car in the world, why most driver not having? Simple, because most of them can't afford it.
Although you might say that S4, XZ and HTC one are all in the same price range, but some may prefer Super AMOLED over LCD, some may need a water resistance smartphone, some may prefer a higher mega-pixel camera for zooming/cropping. So in the end, it just matter of choice/preferences and we should be appreciate that we have so many choices in the market for us to choose.
