AMOLED screen has over-saturated colors and may be unpleasant to others like me, that's why i prefer LCD as it has lower saturation in terms of color which is not hurtful on the eyes, just my opinion thou...

I do concede that being incredible expensive to make and having some durability concerns are probably why we never saw such a screen in a smartphone.

This is actually the phone that is long awaited. Everybody was looking for a mid sized but high end phone. Sony has done it. Thanks sony, for miniaturizing the shape but keeping the outstanding performance.
I can't imagine why would Sony waste space on the screen by putting the home, app manager and back buttons there. A huge amount of space is available under the screen why not use it? A 4.3 inch screen turns into a 3.8 at max with that taskbar.

Clearly, you haven't owned an Xperia ZU if you think OLED is better overall.

Aaackxk, 13 Nov 2013Just crazy, big bezels but great camera? Looks stupidThe bezels seem to be the same size of those in the Z1, it's just the phone that is smaller (thus proportionally they may appear bigger).
You probably can't do much smaller without sacrificing endurance in case of a fall.
rec15, 13 Nov 2013Simple...Because TFT is the best display.Strange.. I could have sworn the best was OLED.
In fact it must be a worlds first to claim superiority to TFT, it never had it, not even when it was a new technology going against just CRT.
I can tell you what is its biggest advantage: it's CHEAP. Let me correct that to the current day, it's DIRT CHEAP.
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2013isn`t that a triluminos display ?So what? That's just a freaking buzzword, their displays are still horrible, including the display of the Z1. it has horrible battery life because of the poor display as well. just compare LG G2 with Xperia Z1. both are non AMOLED panels though the G2 is miles ahead in terms of colors and power efficiency.
Mr Grumpy, 13 Nov 2013Agreed, I've also never understood Sony ruin their mobiles using cheap ass displays. Would it ... moreAMOLED sucks because it wears off so fast (resulting in tinted contrasts) and personally i dislike its oversaturated colors. there are far better LCD panels out there than what sony uses.
