also n900 even on release was not best specced phone and it was overpriced same goes for n9 both stole sony ericsson aino looks just like whole lumia series,only thing n900 and n9 had going was that they had new os which was unproven and unfinished product just to sell n9 they had to say that they would add android os emulator which as far as i remember did poorly in emulating,nokia is scam and will always will be just like apple and samsung
sony,motorola,zte and htc are better than those

3.n9 had a pentile display but it was still great in 2011,i'm sure you've never used the device in real lifeand judging it on paper,it is still among the most sunlight readable amoleds ever..
4.poor antenna?are you kidding
or drunk?where did you learnt that....

N9 came out far behind the competition with a stripped beta OS that could barely duo anything at all, it was "Moblin 2". And hardware? No card slot, blurred text on Pentile display, poor antennas.
Mashi, 21 Aug 2013I was big fan of Sony 'Ericsson' which is now sony ... I am Fully satisfied with Sony Ericsson... moreBut why did you buy Xperia S? It was never a secret that it was a flop. I was also SE and Xperia fan but not blind enough to buy the Xperia S, I went for Samsung that year and no doubt I did the right thing. Sony was horrible in 2012, that includes the later models as well (T/TX/V)
Dont judge Xperia Z based on bad luck with a phone that you should not have bought in the first place. Xperia S was always a bad buy, even after several price drops. Z is great, after the last update so great that I may have lost interest in Honami, unless its camera can seriously impress me.

I was big fan of Sony 'Ericsson' which is now sony ... I am Fully satisfied with Sony Ericsson after that divide of SONY & Ericsson.
I Blindly went with SONY XPERIA S (Sony First Mobile In Xperia Series), I thought to change my panel of SONY XPERIA S after 8months and went to Service Center and asked them what whould be the price they said it's 14K
at that time Actual Price of XPERIA S was 23K Approx(INDIA)... I went to Sell my Xperia S they said 9k..
REALLY SONY SUCKS..DON't Go for It(They Don't have Common Sense)
It's Approx..10 Years of Relation with Sony Ericsson used many mobile of it. Now it's Over'
Thanks to SONY .....
XPRIA Z the waste mobile i have Ever seen (A good Future in that is Water Prof)
Waste of Money ..With Sony...
Then Snapdragon 1000 comes, another new phone enters, so tired of this. too much innovation don't you think. instead of hardware improvements why not invent some new features for android they did it before im sure they can do it again.

Then in 2012 I changed to Samsung due to Sony's bad products at the time, after breaking with Ericsson it was like Sony lost common sense. Yeah, Samsung was my only logical option. But I got tired of all the weird software and useless things, those s-apps are really so useless, even defective.
Then the Xperia Z leaks started, I knew at once that the time was right to return to Xperia, the best for me, good to get away from Samsung. It's not that Samsung is terrible, they are doing lots of things right, it's more that Sony isn't doing much wrong. Samsung ui and apps are intrusive and inefficient, sometimes less is better (like nexus and Xperia).
Additional note: if the s-apps were not preloaded on your Samsung, would the first thing you did be to install them when buying a new Samsung? I thought so, proves my point, even hardcore s-fans wouldn't care much about them.
Sorry for commenting twice about the flash, i thought my first message wasn't submitted.

NHZ, 21 Aug 2013808 does better than 1020, misinformed comment.You people are not commenting related to this article,but still i have to say 808 is slightly in daylight,whereas 1020 is much much better than 808 in low light and slighly better in videos...so 1020 is actually the best camera on a phone....
