I really don't see why people like the design of the z series. The phones shape and button placements definitely are nice. But all that damn top and bottom bezel space on the front is ridiculous. Either make the screen bigger to fill in the space, or make the phone smaller (though given the internals of the device that probably wouldn't work)
design wise this phone is a lot cleaner and refined than xperia z . only disappointment is the glass back panel . its so delicate and brittle. this phone wont even take a single drop on a hard surface.
Mangasbt, 29 Aug 2013Look at those basels....so big...it looks like a phone from 2002...It's B-E-Z-E-L-S. Bezels. Geez!
pramesh dhakal, 29 Aug 2013if sony comes up with amoled display and not LCD. I'll buy only sony's phone.. they are best b... moreU are really ignorant when it comes to tech displays. Have u reasoned y Samsung used LCD on Galaxy S4 Active? Simply bcos AMOLED doesn't go with water, I.e. it is not water friendly, and LCD is most ideal. So b4 u start blabbing about Sony not using AMOLED try to get some understanding of things. Btw, LCD is much more natural in terms of colours than AMOLED.
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2013One word. Ugliest. Better buy Lumia 1020.then buy 10 pcs for yourself... nobody cares...
AnonD-178033, 29 Aug 2013designwise: a huge dissapointment. I'll bet on the inside, I would gladly buy one, but on the ... morehaters gonna hate... though the bezels are not that big, as you are showing in comments.firstly see the pics in full view and zoom in. htc one has biggest bezels for a 4.7" device. xperia Z1 is king of smartphones.no other phone has these beast specs. it has everything that owner can demand in this price tag. and also every iphone has big bezels, upcoming iphone 5 is also having big bezels.
What am I seeing in that last photo towards the middle? And What are the chances Sony is saving OIS announcement for the the 4th.
To those who are keep complaining about this phone, have you guys ever appreciated something in your life than keep complaining? or have you ever made something that so meaningful in your life? at least for yourself.... grow up!!!
It doesn't matter on d looks it depends wats inside , btw the design point of view it feels more premium . Htc and Sony know how to make their phones
designwise: a huge dissapointment. I'll bet on the inside, I would gladly buy one, but on the outside... boooooooooooooooring.What kind of a backside is this? does this phone come from 2003? On/off button great, the rest of the buttons? What is this, a 5usd plastic china toy? The front? No soul, no flaws, nothing special.Just plain everyday boring.
AnonD-152344, 29 Aug 2013ugly as hell , craftsmanship is suck even the xperia z's craftsmanship is better than it ohhh really.....
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2013Why bezel very thick?Noticed the speaker grill at the bottom?
Mangasbt, 29 Aug 2013Look at those basels....so big...it looks like a phone from 2002...atleast its not made of plastic bottles.

Try watching the Z Ultra's videos on Youtube and you'll find out that the device's screen is now on par with IPS, Super LCD and the overrated Amoled. Z Ultra's screen is very big at 6.4" but still it can even outshine S4's and HTC One's screens on video comparisons so what more with a more compact device? PPI will be much higher and so the tendency is that the screen pixels are much more intact. Try researching first before commenting non-sense things.
