In one of the white casing pictures the camera seems a little bit of square with rounded corners. But in other pictures its totally round. My eyes are faulty or is it something like that?
paragb, 29 Aug 2013sony fanboys r so insecure they r defending the bezels on there own cause they know how ugly t... moreNow let's see, you are here posting on Sony's blog and complaining about bezels! Clearly, you must have something far more important to do in your life that troll internet sites? Perhaps not! Simple answer, you don't like it, don't buy it. Now GTFO here, waster!
it's human made...it's impossible to make a perfect phone..just proud to be a human..we have a different view because of different taste..no need to become a hater..im a nokia 808 user,but I still interested to sony xperia z1 that run android,nokia lumia 1020 that run wp8,and upcoming iphone 5s with ios7 and golden case..complaint everything with manner,as a human.. :)
So it has no OIS? Thats not good when all new phones will have it. Maybe even the note III
This phone looks amazing man. I wish i had money to buy it. Calling this a camera phone wouldn't be right, this seems like an above average camera phone but because the sensor size is 1/2.3" and there's no Xenon flash, i am sure it will lose out to the Lumia 1020 and Nokia 808 PureView in terms of photography. I think i should wait for the 2014 or 2015 flagship Sony, maybe then it will pack a bigger battery and a Xenon flash.
I have a s4 and I am disappointed in Samsung my screen got broken so easy in my pocket the galaxy s4 is build so cheap and flimsy am going to buy this sony for sure water prof great build quality good design good processor and I can c the viewing angles r good and better battery life bye bye galaxy s4 welcome sony zi
shbi, 29 Aug 2013haters gonna hate... though the bezels are not that big, as you are showing in comments.first... moreand when did I say anything about bezels? I don't care about bezels, I'm observing a phone as a whole. I might like giant bezels if it still looks fine to me. Seems like half of the comments here come from people who are obsessed with phones. Get a life, support phones that you really like because of their looks and specs, not because of its brand. It's like wearing ugly pink shirt from Versace made in Malasia from the cheapest material(all respect to Malasians)and bragging about it how good it looks and how well it is made from premium material.
you know what you sammy fans or nokia fans im sure if they them selves had made big bezels they would not complain because sony made the most amazing features in their new phone gosh sony gonna defeat sammy new note 3 once and for all weather you all like it or not so plz try to find another bad opinion coz its the same design as the sony xperia z and every one likes the sony xperia z design coz its beautiful and the white looks amazing sorry sammy fans and nokia fans the 1020 is amazing but the camera so big and ugly and the samsung galaxy s4 zoom really ugly u guys should look at your own brand and see how ugly those phones are if i have to pick for best design is the iphone 5 the sony xperia z and honami and htc and the lumia 900 all sammy phones are amazingly ugly -_-
Peachy Peach, 29 Aug 2013Haters here, there and everywhere. If you're NOT into Sony phones, get a life and go somewhere... moreDo you know there is difference between hating and just honestly not liking?
+ If no one complains and criticizes from his point of view, things never get better, you shoud know that.
Very nice n.n But now I want a big smartphone to couple with my compact and speedy Razr i n.n
Xperia Z Ultra, in purple *-*
Pd: Kids stop complaining and arguing because of someone else's taste or opinion. You look very stupid :/
20.7 Mega-pixel camera ?, Ooowww, that is so 2011, my 808 Pureview has had 41 Mega-pixels since the beginning of 2012.
Xenon and LED flash ?, the 808 has both of those too.
4k video ?, don't own a capable TV, don't need it.
AbCdEx, 29 Aug 2013Funny that every negative comment about this phone right now is its "BEZELS".. You k... moreYou'll notice on this website that when a non-Samsung phone has an article, lots of people will post very similar complaints or insults about that phone.
For example, Apple iOS critiques are all: "It's for girls.", Sony critiques are about the bezel, Nokia about the WP OS. Then, the posts will usually mention a Samsung phone in a positive light.
It's all Samsung employees, that lack the imagination to even be creative in insults, much less design a nice looking product.
Haters here, there and everywhere. If you're NOT into Sony phones, get a life and go somewhere else. You hate Sony? Let's ask if Sony even care about each and everyone of you. Might as well, excel on your job and go build a smartphone of your own with NO BEZEL at all. Lol!
Funny that every negative comment about this phone right now is its "BEZELS".. You know why?!? Because the Samsung/Nokia Fanboys cant bash any other thing and that is the only flaw they can think of.. Why not complain about the Bezels back in Xperia Z days?? Because internals are not that good so they bash processor and stuff.. Now, since its more superior than their beloved flagships, they think of a flaw they can exploit.. LOL.. Sore losers.. Next time when this is finally perfect, they will probably say: "Hey Look! the 3.5mm jack isn't round enough.. Haters won't run out of excuses.. And only stupid people will listen to you.. We here love Sony because we know the product and dont bash others coz we know better.. Get a life.. Bezelperia?!? More like BestPeria to you.. Cant bash IPhone's Bezel?!? Why so?!? it has same bezel to think its more smaller than this.. Scared of Apple Samsung fanboys?!? LOL..
