Guys bezels are not that big and they are same as iPhone5 and thats reasonable,because in landscape mode it makes the place for resting hands and not sudden touchs.
some days ago I played fifa with a friend's galaxy note2 and all the time my hands were hiding two sides of screen and that was annoying all the time,and also during watching videos,it suddenly exits from full screen mode.maybe you think you can hold it different but that way there is danger of sliping and falling down for the phone.So a minimum size of bezel is important,and that's why Apple with all of that emphasis on making a compact phone,chose that size for bezel.
AnonD-162988, 27 Aug 2013what designers at sony are doing?are they sleeping or what?what a terrible design.all these So... morewhen all other phones have rounded rectangle shape, why shouldn't Sony have a perfect rectangle.?
y dont sony make a phone wid less bezels?? i hate huge bezels... whats the point of giving those extra spaces?? better give off screen physical buttons then... love the size of zl but it lacks IP certification... samsung z way better in producing compact phones with less bezels and physical buttons still keeping great size... is that hard for sony to make it?? poor sony... always let down its customers...
Jason Melling, 27 Aug 2013Looks like every other mobile Sony has released in the past year. Cookie cutter mentality.Which phone exactly from the past year?
The Z1 looks like the Xperia Z line (Z, Z Ultra) that only been released in less than a year.
wondering why people keep complaining... if you want the perfection then find out yourself, personally I like this phone and for the design wise I think every company has their own signature to keep it recognisable, look apple and their device's so we can't judge something only with our own taste it must be objective and make sense! well done SONY, just believe that there's still somebody who's like you amongs who dislike...
laggdroids, 27 Aug 2013The screen looks so dull. The so called "Triluminous" displays shoves off this time!!!the pics are taken by a low end camera... so how can u see the actual display colours???? wen the fone launches see the phone live.... it differs... then ul stop talkn ur crap
sargis, 27 Aug 2013LOL, bezel became the most frequent word in the Sony-related comments. Honestly, I do miss the... moreanti-Sony guys can't find other thing to fault Sony, so they just keep on saying the bezel thing as if it is the most important thing in the world
I love SONY, But the Bezels are putting me off. I hope one day Sony Will hear our far cry. Dont tell me its too hard for sony to make a phone with smaller phone, it will even look more beautiful. Thats my view
Where is 64gb?, 27 Aug 2013This is another 16gb trash. Not worth looking at.
What good can your phone do if it run out... moreSorry pal, don't you ever heard about saving photos to external memory card?
Your argument is invalid.
This beats the Nokia 1020 for image
quality , just they wont release that software to
the public out of respect too Nokia for 1 year.
The software uses a secret image processor chip that will be kept locked until then.
That what my friend at Sony said and he runs
custom ROMs as well.
He also said the Xperia Z range has better low-light
than the 925 and 920 but they don't want to release the update. He said they never will now as they are busy with Z1.
I think it's great of Sony and I respect them for not
damaging Nokia's new camera and releasing the software yet. Thank you Sony, the true Kings
LOL, bezel became the most frequent word in the Sony-related comments. Honestly, I do miss the buttons, too...
AnonD-162988, 27 Aug 2013what designers at sony are doing?are they sleeping or what?what a terrible design.all these So... moremmmm
i have to agree with you there, is just a rectangle, it doesn't have anything new.
but somehow i like it, kinda looks like a few other Japanese phones, sharp, panasonic.. etc
i think its about simplicity
maybe they could stop using a rectangle if they changed the shape of the screen, or if they used a flexible screen, is like a TV, they are all the same, a rectangle, and now-days is just the screen because they are border-less
anyways as stated, i like the simplicity, yes, is just a rectangle, but i like it
I think it's fake... something just seems off. Hope I'm right, otherwise I'll be skipping Z1.
