popye, 14 Aug 2013What's with this obsession in thin bezels? Do you guys think you know any better than Sony at ... moreThinner bezels are always better, they're a feature and don't really have anything to do with design. The thinner the bezel, the more efficient the screen size is, the easier the phone is to hold. This has absolutely nothing to do with design.
THE CELL X, 14 Aug 2013Looking at the pictures, i just have one thing to say: My God.. the iphone is so ugly...!!!The iPhone is the most iconic and most imitated phone design. Your opinion is invalid.

[deleted post]Hmm, the top four are LG and Samsung devices. That must be why users give them such high ratings. Oh, wait....
Perfect Sony Smartphone design & Specs
1)Xperia ZL thin bezel front
2)Xperia Z glass back
3)4.7" Display 1080 x 1920 full HD
6)Snapdragon 800w/ Adreno 330
7)20mp Camera w/xenon flash
9)2600 mAh Battery
It would be a phone for the ages!
my experience with sony was bad and good:
xperia play-very bad
not responsive fixed the screen processor twice the buttons werent working never rooted so it was always stock call quality was low very weak durability though i got attached to it
one of the best compact android devices i ever used the fluidity with that weak power after 4.0.3 on gingerbread yeah it was really bad btw i still use it today
xperia arc s-awful
constant reboot 7+ times a day every thing got deleted after the reboot it was a piece of junk
this device i didn't notice any problem with it at all the best design from sony to date fast responsive and pracrical
note that i usually use sony as a second device but nt anymore i am using htc one "main" s3"second" i am waiting for a gr8 device in my mind its either htc one max or xperia honami in my opinion htc one max looks better but i already have the normal htc one so its a tough decision ill base the result over the ram who gets 3 gigs ram ill buy it. good luck sony
Here are the reasons why this phone wouldn't be a hit:
1. A 1/2.3'' sensor size is too less and the image quality degrades as you zoom in since it's a digital zoom.
2. No Xenon flash. Led lights aren't sufficient to get a good picture in low light.
3. On screen keys take some size of the screen and aren't many people's cup of tea.
4. Non-removable battery.
5. Battery backup would be an issue with Sony.
G2 or Honami, 14 Aug 2013OMG! that bezel! TOO MUCH WASTED SPACE!(upper & bottom) the phone looks WIDER! wha... moreWasted Space??!! They put a Bigger Sensor/Camera (1/2.3"), Bigger Batery (3050mAh), Bigger Speaker and the diference is only 4mm wider than the Z!
Was interested in this phone but i'll pass. LG G2 looks the better option size wise. Camera should be good but rather a silm phone, good battery and great screen. G2 looks like the way forward unless Apple have something up there sleeve which I highly doubt.
so this is what "the future" and "the past" looks like side by side in a smartphones form lol
Shut up, People! As yo can see, Honami has the same bezels of the iPhone, and now are you complainig when no one ever really complains about iphone's bezels? Come on!.
Sony has done an excellent work, putting here:
- Better and bigger Speakers
- Bigger camera (1/2.3" Sensor F2.0, G lenses, 20mpx, Manual Mode)
- Bigger Batery (3050mAh)
- Water-proof (Ip58) 3.5mm jack flapless
Everything in a 8.9mm profile
Compact camera era is going to gone soon just like pager in the past. Stop producing compact camera just focus with smartphones with good camera sensor. I suggest 1 inch sensor minimal to steal market n gain your former glory.
PiXeLaDo, 14 Aug 2013Not gonna lie, it looks like an Acro S, which feels perfectly fine and ergonomic in the hand..... moreOh, almost forgot. The Acro S used hardware capacitive keys, while this one uses on-screen navigation buttons.
Hey, they could've used capacitive buttons here! Look at all that space!
The iphone should have been in the left side so that the minion would look like its looking at the iphone. Lol. There is a wasted space at the top and bottom bezel, sony should have trim it.
Not gonna lie, it looks like an Acro S, which feels perfectly fine and ergonomic in the hand... but then it's a 5" screen, that's too much for a lot of people already, let alone 5" + bezels.
Almost as bad (if not worse) as the iPhone. The Z Ultra was just perfect. Why not borrow that design?
lol, please, do not compare iphone to honami - even if the honami is thicker then the z, it still looks 10 times better then iphone or any other phone.
