Aly.Mir, 28 Jul 2013Galaxy S 4, Galaxy S 4 Active and Galaxy S 4 Zoom combined in a phone that has clearly a bette... moreSeriously??? S4 have the crappiest design ever on earth.,esp the s4 zoom, the ugliest and bulkiest phone on ever made on earth!! I appreciate the design of One,Z,G2. Samsung can make phones based on S3 design. It can never be innovative in design terms.mind it!
Angel, 28 Jul 2013All Sony Xperia and Samsung Galaxy Phone looks the same. Only Specs are different. How does S4 and ZL look alike rather than they are both smartphones?
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2013Someone speculated at another cellphone website that i1 may not be Triluminous, made sense in ... moreI'm pretty sure that Sony will use tft display on this since it is an IP57 phone, OLED display is rather not suitable for water proof phone since it is "organic" and may get damaged by water.
Sony Z display quality is not good is not the fault of tft technology, but the quality of the display which shouldn't used on an high-end device with such quality. Triluminos display is still a tft and the X-reality is just some software trick, so how much effort will Sony put on the display is the real question. But the ZU display shows a good improvement compare to Z, tot it is from a display unit but not from a actual device. Hopes Sony won't disappoint ppl again with bad display.
No Xenon, No big sensor, maybe no real OIS....just another Xperia Z and Galaxy 4 clone for the masses. So sad and boring.
You can never describe this as ugly. Not to your particular taste, fine , that is OK. The design language follows the Xperia Z which the HTC One apart is probably the best looking phone of the last 12 months. Personally, I will have to wait to see this in the metal as not too sure any phone longer that than the Z is pocket friendly but then again, it is meant to be thinner. If not this then may very well go for the LG G2 but LG's history of support for its phones is beyond poor plus they hardly have any resale value!

The display on the Z Ultra (and more than likely on this one as well) is a normal IPS LCD display, but the back-lighting is not a white LED like normal, but a blue LED that illuminates red and green quantum dots. The result being purer white light which is then filtered. The advantage is you don't have all those "crap" frequencies floating around like you do with a normal LCD. The filters are tuned to the back-light colors, and color purity, contrast, and efficiency are enhanced.
Octa-core lie, 28 Jul 2013"Stamina mode" can some 1 please tell me what's that function. I'm just lazy to go o... more"Stamina mode" is generally same as many conventional battery saving apps in Google Play which trying to increase the "Standby Time" of a phone by eliminate as much data/wifi traffic as it can during standby mode in order to increase the battery performance since data/wifi traffic consumes many powers. You will not able to receive email,whatsapp/Line/other chat messages during standby as all your phone is considered as "offline" in standby mode, you may add exception to certain apps so that they won't go offline in standby mode (which is again, same as many conventional battery saving apps).
But since it improve ONLY THE STANDBY TIME of your phone, thus it is rather useless/not effective for heavy users as most of the time their phone are not in standby mode while it is effective for moderate and light users.
sony! the phone bezel is way too big! and the 3 function buttons needs to be a part of the bezel and not a part of the screen! - these are major major flaws! why do you repeat these xz flaw again with honami??? learn from your mistakes!

Gelvin, 28 Jul 2013I would love to see a comparison between this beast, Lumia 1020 and PureView 808. BTW, I am on... moreMy eyes are going crazy, I thought you wrote that 808 is not a phone camera. That would be an insane thing to write, I better see an eye doctor asap.
Wahid Ali Xperienced, 28 Jul 2013The only phone in the world with 5" Triluminious display powered by X-Realty engine 2.2 G... moreSomeone speculated at another cellphone website that i1 may not be Triluminous, made sense in many ways, Sony has a history of making at least one fatal mistake on all their phones. Then the manufacturing of Triluminous displays, are they able to make that small quantum dot subpixels, or is there a practical manufacturing related issue that caused z ultra to have that overkill big display?
Lots of potential buyers will hate Sony if this is another tft lcd.
"Stamina mode" can some 1 please tell me what's that function. I'm just lazy to go over sony's forum and learn about it. Is it battery power saving or what??
The only phone in the world with 5" Triluminious display powered by X-Realty engine 2.2 Ghz Quad core Snapdragon 800 20.7 Mp and above all 3000mAh huge Battery with Stamina Mode Let's wait and watch how thus Beast turns to be the Best
