Anonymous, 23 Jul 2013Hail the new king. Sony rules, others follow.Sony rules in your dream yes. Samsung rule and HTC rule does even better than Sony stop dreaming.
What ugly phone. And what for 20 MP just to make it more expensive. What a screen? We have type of Edge to Edge screen like Moto X phone. Finally trying to copy the Galaxy Note series doesn't help at all.
Moto X all the way... For better experiance and better price from Google and Moto.
They would try Bada OS.
Its a clear statement to cut the megapixel amount of 41 in half and if Sony's camera performs better... oh boy. However I believe its about the camera app as well and how well that is made along with sharing n stuff... hope Sony comes up with innovations on that too.
I still don't get why Sony's so damn up and about certifying their phones with water & dust resistant. Those flaps covering those connectors aren't sturdy enough to last.
Shadow Of Intent, 23 Jul 2013Do you want a thick ugly phone with a hump on the back?A lmao...a quasimodo smartphone :"D
Sony is now currently working on ps games adaptability for its future xperia. Watch out I got my own insider.
Gelvin, 23 Jul 2013Any source or link at which you can justify your claim of 1020 not being in the Smartphones ca... moreI agree with him, Nokia 1020 really focuses more on being a cameraphone than a smartphone. It even uses the same old "dual core" Krait CPU. If you will say that WP8 doesn't lag even with just a dual core to give an excuse then you still have to admit that Nokia isn't stepping the game up. They should at least keep up with the standards that is why I can also say that Nokia EOS is more of a cameraphone than an all around smartphone.
Gelvin, 23 Jul 2013Any source or link at which you can justify your claim of 1020 not being in the Smartphones ca... moreIt's obvious. Consumers will blah at the ugly bulky design with the big circle on the back.
Samsung have a 13mp camera with a small sensor and it's so successful.
Disappointed, 23 Jul 2013I was really delaying the purchase of S4 to see what Sony will come up with. Well - Xperia Z d... moreSony does not build phones based on consumers needs and they will never listen to any comments and suggestions.
I like the speakers location! They won't be muted when you place the phone on a table.

Gelvin, 23 Jul 2013Thick? Try putting that huge sensor on a device consists of 10mm thickness. Guess what? You'll... moreI have to say Sony really has one of the best designs out there and Samsung has the worst. Sony alongside LG and especially HTC have the best phone designers or architects out there. It is only a fanboy who will say that Sony sucks in design department, only a fanboy of Samsung or Apple will say that Sony's designs are ugly.
The specifications looks good but can its 20mp camera even compete with nokias pureview
TVKC, 23 Jul 2013Ok... Sony Sensors are used in Xperia Phones, in the iPhone 4, 4S and 5, in other phone brands... moreThe point is that, for example, S4 has the same camera module as Xperia Z, but the S4 makes infinitely better photos (check the reviews). So, Sony makes good camera modules but Sony developers don't know how to use them. I hope they make it right this time.
Shadow Of Intent, 23 Jul 2013Honami is a smartphone in the S4 category and not 1020's cameraphone category. Big difference. Any source or link at which you can justify your claim of 1020 not being in the Smartphones category like S4? Also any proof of 1020 is a cameraphone not a smartphone?
I was really delaying the purchase of S4 to see what Sony will come up with. Well - Xperia Z design with beefy hardware but the ugly black bezel, the on screen buttons and UI put me off big time!! The phone was said to begin a new era for Sony but I can't see it going anywhere...
BTW: regardless to what all portals and leaks say I don't believe that little slot under the camera (which is in wrong place anyway) is a Xenon flash.
Maybe next time Sony...
Shadow Of Intent, 23 Jul 2013Do you want a thick ugly phone with a hump on the back?Thick? Try putting that huge sensor on a device consists of 10mm thickness. Guess what? You'll fail hard. I think Samsung already have done that with its Galaxy Zoom and everybody knows the results.
Ugly? Yeah right. How many awards for the beauty Sony won? None. Lumia(s)? 2-3.
Keep building jealousy in yourself hardcore blind Sony fanboy. It will only lead you towards arrogance.
Could be at least 5 milimeter shorter. But still its specs sound great. Will see soon.
To be fair with Sony, I have to admit that they are one of the OEMs who really know how to design their devices. This is not too different with the Xperia Z but the design isn't that bad at all. I just hope that the bezels are more like the bezels on the ZL so it will be more attractive. We haven't seen this in real life so we should not judge it first. I like the fact that this uses the new Snapdragon 800 but I think I have to wait for the reviews on the camera performance for me to decide if I should go for this or go with LG's G2 instead. I know that the phone's screen with Triluminous technology already fixed the problem with the Xperia Z's screen. Now if the camera on this phone performs above average and better than most of the flagships there then I might consider Sony as my next phone but if the camera is another mediocre like the Z then I will go with G2. I just hope that both phones have great speakers since based on the photos of the Honami, it has a very big speaker at the bottom part of the phone while G2 has dual speakers also located at the bottom of the device. I was excited for the Nokia 1020 but when I saw the same old processor instead of the rumored Snapdragon 800 then I changed my mind again. I will stick with the Android platform but I will carefully choose the best before the holiday season since the competition is getting tougher nowadays. I will choose the best device that will replace my well loved HTC One X plus. Best of luck Sony!
