Anonymous, 18 Nov 2013trim those bezels! the purpose of a mini phone with a 4.3" screen is to have a small profile.what does a slim bezel have to do with function? its a phone. its 1st purpose is to make phone calls and everything else after. what does a trimmed bezel have to do with making phone calls? if you are worried about the size then perhaps you need bigger hands? cheers!
Why do people always complain about bezel whenever they refer to Z1 ? do you realize that Microsoft Lumia 1020 also does not particularly have a slim bezel but hey the people don't mention it and that goes to a lot more of other recent smartphone or even tablet. Puny.
Vino31, 18 Nov 2013The reason why I can't give up Sony is because of durability. durability and bad service is the only option sony lost their loyal customers to samsung atleast in india.. u buy phone for 500$ after 1 year u have to sell it to 50$, bcoz their component ( board fused off suddenly) replacement will cost you 400$... any repair in sony is premium, whether the device is premium or not....!this has happened to two of my friends owning satio what a sad..
It's admirable that Sony is taking smart steps rather than just gimmicky miniaturesof rivals.
But sadly they are are taking too long to bring it on.
Remember when Sony announced Xperia z Samsung also brought water resistant phone. Which suggests that next move from Sammy and HTC will bring their smaller versions with the Dr specs as bigger next year and they will be way better in that if they do that
So the point is song is giving time for the rival to get in the competition.
Instead I would have loved to eat the cake before other even launch it. Once other will launch their consumers will be destracted.
Come on Sony their you got the things right right time don't loose with tactics. Next year for sure your features will be dead far behind.
Experience, 18 Nov 2013 I prefer 4.3 inch over 5 inch any day. However, the only exception is Xperia ZL. I truly am ... moreXperia UL had a slim bazel with a waterproof... But sadly it just for japan sales only.
Eldamri, 18 Nov 2013I think he meant ZL which is a non water resistant phone.No, he actually meant ZR (http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_xperia_zr-5421.php), a great phone btw
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2013I guess that's the drawback of water resistance. Remember that you gotta seal the device. Look... moreTo other phones brand drawback is they can't make water resistant phone as beautiful as Sony. Btw thin bezel like the one on LGG2 looks so abnormally squeezed and hardly fitted.
I prefer 4.3 inch over 5 inch any day. However, the only exception is Xperia ZL. I truly am in love with phone for it's compact size and huge 5 inch screen. Other phones are just not comfortable to hold no matter how many people to make excuses for this matter. I will continue to hold on my Xperia ZL until this baby comes out and is reviewed properly only then I'll buy it, and no I won't sell my precious unique ZL.

Battery life will be interesting. if it really has an IPS panel rather than a TN panel, only 4.3 inches size and only 720p resolution but still an S800 then it'll be really interesting how much hours of watching videos and web browsing you can do with it... I hope at least 5.
RandomUsername, 18 Nov 2013I want this because of reasons.those bezels are thinner than your iPhones ...
Trying to make a phone bad name before you saw it?

It seems too big for a 4.3" phone. It's almost the same size as Nexus 4.
