large bezels that are ugly?
ZL compare with Z1, which is more beautiful?
I think Z1 wins with huge margin.
small bezels makes the phone uglier, but more comfortable.
Well... what do you know... yet another Sony device with thick ugly BEZELS!
Sony Xperia Z
Sony Xperia Z1
Sony Xperia Z1S
Sony Xperia Z1SX
Sony Xperia Z1SXL
Sony Xperia Z1SXL Ultra
z1s - the s stands for bezel
compareing this photo with the japanese z1f it looks different. camera is not on the same place. but japan always gets another, different/better version. so it might be replaced for the international market. like xperia z offers an IR port in japan and the international version doesn't.
sony starts to make me belive that they think that their japanes costumers deserve better devices for not being foreigners. i hate discrimination! if they don't start to tread me equal i will go for another company that values me as equal.
miro420, 20 Oct 2013bezel? i really don't care about that. what is important is the specs inside. BTW we all know ... moreThe Z was big enough already, No need to go crazy with bezels like on Z1, especially the length, why is it that long, it's too much. The size is near the Note 3, then I do care, that's over the limit for me, Z1 should have been slightly thicker to accommodate an ok battery in a smaller body. Im passing on Z1, hope the next is better or I get the Mini.
Hmmm, looking at the new placements of the audio jack and front camera, maybe Sony had added some hardware upgrades to the rear cam. (OIS? :D) As you know, the main cam and the front one are on the same side of the Z1, now its moved to the other side, since its moved there, the audio jack was adjusted also for it not to get in the way of the front cam. Sony rolled out a firmware update too recently, so maybe we gonna see some major improvements with this alleged Z1f's rear camera?﻿

Sony can make small bezels if they wanted to, just take a look at the ZL. I still think thats Sony's best design by far. Sony please make a non waterproof flagship :D

Just give it two more weeks. Z1 mini is out for global market. Just the announcement, the availability will be in January 2014.

When you use the volume sound thru headset at maximum, a notification will pop up, it will tell you that it's not advisable for you to do so, coz it's bad for your ears. You see they value costumers safety.
day or night, sunshine or rain, its always sony that wins the heart and the game.

Personally I would much rather use a headset... can't really enjoy it unless I have my sub connected... heck I don't even use the speakers on my laptop or tablet
