camera definitely improved... but no real "wow" snapdragon 800 is already used by alot of flagships.. kind of disappointed.. i will just stay with my xperia z.
Anonymous, 04 Sep 2013I think the design of the G2 is better than the Xperia Z1, I just don't like it. Though I'm le... moreI really do like G2 since it can play 24bit 192khz FLAC files (I have a large collection of FLAC files), the intuitive power and volume buttons at the back (though some people will disagree with me), and the screen to bezel ratio. However, Z1 stole my heart with its imaging prowess, waterproofness, dedicated camera button, the same camera sensor found in the best point and shoot camera (obviously the Sony RX100), and premium materials. I was thinking to buy the Sony RX100 camera, but with a smartphone like Z1, I think there won't be a need to buy the RX100.
Marty H, 04 Sep 2013Sony hasn't got an 8 core super processor. So Samsung has twice the raw CPU power. And it's ... moreHave you read how the octa core works? I had a Note 2, sold it and bought an S4....I regret that decision every day. It hangs, it sometimes freezes when I open the camera app...it sometimes tells me there is no memory when downloading a song, I'm not impressed at all.....BUT I'm keen on this.
+1 to Sony. Good Phone.
Samsung - its time to get up and show some real tech. too much of safe play
The Z1 is basically a Z with updated intenals, new camera and a proper screen. :D
I'd get this when it releases on 18th :)
karthick subramanian, 04 Sep 2013sony doing great with the xperia z1 but not great enough to satisfying the customers,where is ... moreif sony really bring all technologies into z1 mini it wont be called mini anymore, it'll be called z1 extreme lol
can some body plz tell me if after some time the battery needs to be replaced,is it possible??
Guys all these negative comments are a very good sign! Why? It's so obvious Samsung fans are feeling the heat! Yes, they are because the S4 is nothing than an ordinary phone. Now Sony has the Z, Z ultra, Z1 which are by far better than any galaxy.
Sony has finally put Samsung in their real place, the garbage!
Go Sony, the giant electronic king has awaken. Bye bye cheap plastic for ever.
Troll much? the gimmicky "octa core" barely did better than the snapdragon 600.. which is in most versions of the S4. The snapdragon800 obliterates the octacore in both performance and battery life. Find a better argument next time fanbooy.
I'm a Samsung Note user, and sad to say, Samsung has been monotonous and playing too safe in these 2 years. Time for either Z1 or One Max. I just wished Z1 had front facing speakers...
Marty H, 04 Sep 2013Sony hasn't got an 8 core super processor. So Samsung has twice the raw CPU power. And it's ... moreso much spam, samsung 8 cores lag like crazy as the software isnt optimised, my xperia z now suffers no lags whatsoever, when i first got the xperia z it lagged and the screen was washed out, but with the new 4.2.2 update its perfect, no lag, perfect screen, no forced closures, just a poor loudspeaker lol, samsung is rubbish not all the things work properly on them
