sony put real buttons in z1 mini please. remove that stupid onscreen buttons
whether the bezel is big or not, it still has a 5" triluminous display. I know you will compare it with amoled displays/iPhone's retina display, but it doesn't matter. All types of screen displays has its advantages and disadvantages, nothing is perfect! All I can say is this phone looks fantastic and elegant. By just looking at the high resolution rendered images, you can feel that the phone is made of premium quality materials. If the camera is excellent then this will be a top notch phone!
Aesthetically I would love a thinner bezel, they look great! But practicality plays a part in a slightly thicker bezel... My hands are quite large and wrap around 4-5" phones quite easily, and thin bezeled phones are hard to hold any other way than flat in my palm. Waking the phone all the time, or accidentally scrolling down when web browsing, sending the wrong commands in a game, etc. just because my fingers were touching the edges slightly. I am forever changing from landscape, to portrait, and angles in-between with my phone or tablet. Thinner bezel also means that the screen is closer to the edge... Which looks awesome and futuristic (oh, i'm just holding a screen). And guaranteed that unless the "thin bezel" device has futuristic glass, it's gonna crack if you drop it on its edge. I would love "no bezel" devices, but the protection technologies just are not there yet. Plus I can't really compare these new Xperia Z series to any other brand right now, simply because of the extra protection you get with the dust and water resistance.
With so much space on the bottom, why don't they put some physical buttons on the phone? Permanent on-screen navigation is so damn stupid. But how can I not buy this phone as soon as it's released?? So amazing. Staying up all night to watch the IFA event. Love Sony so much.
Cls.Luc10, 02 Sep 2013I want honami mini!! sony xperia z is too big for my taste, z1 is bigger :(Oh It's too big! As though you haven't held anything more than 4 inches in your hand :p Just Saying..
It will be a good phone... Sony have done a good job with it's recent Xperia phones..
GSManiac, 03 Sep 2013Are you smart? Or you just pretend to be smart? With slim bezel means the dimension of the pho... moreBezel of that size does not affect.pocketability,unless you're a ten year old kid,in which case you have nothing to do here.
shouxville, 02 Sep 2013what does a slim bezel have to do with fitting in your pocket? go buy a slim bezel 50" tv... moreAre you smart? Or you just pretend to be smart? With slim bezel means the dimension of the phone will be smaller n narrower n it'll fit the pocket. Better you compare to S4, G2, Moto X, Note 3's bezel. It's not a matter of using it horizontally or vertically, it's a matter how the handset fits the hand grip n pocket. Sigh.
what is the difference between z and z1 ,,,
so many similar models in the market confusing consumers..
really they should make it litte more simple.
im not just talking about sony.
Wonder if you will be able to use a stylus with this one like the ultra z.
i want honami mini (honamini) too! give me the mini 4,3". i do not want to buy galaxy s4 mini.
Camera lens way too close to the corner you can easily accidentally cover it with your fingers
Top and bottom bezels are a waste of space, you don't need that much to hold it on landscape mode (this is NOT a heavy tablet for crying out loud) and it's really just useless overall unless that space holding the speakers or some extra buttons
DTech, 02 Sep 2013Not actually required, if you have an iPhone 5, you can tell you dont need 3-4 gigs of Ram. that doesn't make sense, no offence.the xperia z has a higher resolution than the iphone
I was going to buy this phone no questions asked but my xperia z back glass came off due to their overheating fault. So I sent it to get repaired and instead they smash my screen ans then say I did it!
So to save 200pd replacing my phone they will lose 1000s because my ps4 has become an xbox one, my new phone will be an lg g2 and my new tv anyone sony has no shares in
