Well done sony, so far this phone looks beast. But does the camera have OIS?
You sir, clearly have not any idea in the slightest how the little.BIG processors work in general. There are indeed 8 CPU cores, the thing is that only 4 cores can be used for processing at once. Either the 4 cortex-a7 or the cortex-a15 cores. Performance-wise you're actually looking at a quad-core phone since -not even in benchmarks- all of the 8 cores can be utilized at the same time.
cheebc, 04 Sep 2013xperia Z = 5" Z1 = 5" so pls tell me how big is Z1 compare to Z?I think mico was referring to the body size and weight differences. The Z1 is nowhere near as light, small or slim as the Z is (personally that's not too big an issue).
The Xperia Z has been the best smartphone experience thus far. Over a year down the line, no slowdowns, the case still looks new, screen bright as ever and performance that does not disappoint. Honami has some big shoes to fill. Looks like the Honami is an improved version of the Z.
finally they put a decent sized battery in their phone. NOw waiting for the reviews to come. Hopefully they fix the screen as well.
This snap-on camera is really pointless due to its size.
The camera module is huge and therefore you will not carry it around in your pockets all the time. Thus, it defeats the purpose of a good mobile phone camera (ie. always having a good camera in your pocket).
Everything will diminish when the battery is out and u can only charge it asap.....
I agree, new model, faster processor and better camera, but the xperia z1 weighs 18% more than the xperia z and 31% more than the galaxy s4 for the same 5 inch screen...
Marty H, 04 Sep 2013Sony hasn't got an 8 core super processor.
So Samsung has twice the raw CPU power.
And it's ... moreHow much samsung pays ?
& please tell how much you need to adore sony/htc/moto or anything...Lol
Eplak, 04 Sep 2013I really do like G2 since it can play 24bit 192khz FLAC files (I have a large collection of FL... moreSorry to disappoint you, but the z1 sensor is big as the classic point and shoot cameras, I.e.1/2.3", whereas the RX100 has a 1" sensor... Ok, it is bigger than on the other smartphones (1/3"), but not as big as the RX100.
Now Sony is flying...Im eagerly waiting when it is available in Muscat..
Ready to Sell my NoteII for this. Note3 is a big joke and a new failure like the S4 ... Sony Played it well this time a brilliant device. wating for it
Why wasn't the Sony Xperia C launched today? When is it going to be launched?
A couple months ago my wife put her iphone 4S AND a bottle of water in her purse without capping the bottle tightly enough. The phone got soaked in water for about 1/4 hour and went dead. I was able to fix it by replacing a damaged capacitor on the logic board and recovered all functions after a week, but she's already wanted a water resistant phone (instead of not putting phone and water together). So she got an Xperia Z, happy with everything else but deeply disappointed with the quality of the display. I guess anyone who comes off Apply's Retina IPS display panel would complain a stone age TFT like the one on an Xperia Z. She was able to return the Z and had since been waiting for the Z1. I hope Sony makes it right on the diaplay this time around so that my wife can spend a bit of more time in the kitchen than on the computer getting "teased" by the teasers all day long.
