Common Sensei, 25 Feb 2014Sony is definitely not top dog yet. That'll take a couple of years to undo what Samsung has ac... moreevery thing samsung has and accomplished are just got by copying from companies like Apple and SONY.
if you imagine the time that SONY was making Play station and walkman , Samsung was making refrigerator.
outrageous price! And when you think that flagship phones in 2009(except iPhone) were no more than 350 euro :)
$600 in US and £600 = $998 at market rates today in UK!!! While the companies do exploitative cr@p like this with their pricing I won't be buying. Nice bit of gear maybe but treating us like fools. I'll be looking for better value amongst the 720p phones with plenty of battery life and BTing to something like a Nexus 7 2013, all for pretty much the same money.

will wait for my current S4 to age while saving for Z2. the deteriorating aesthetic of galaxy phones, and overloaded with nonsense specs (that make the phone laggy and slow) are my main reasons. I even consider lumia 1020. but Z2 is my priority now. :)

Hold on to your horses! 6000Sek is not 810(that would be insane!) 6000 Sek = 671,25E.
The sales figures shows that eventhough people curse samsung a lot, but they buy it. But even those who praise Sony and Htc they are hesistant to buy it. Instead they are again looking at Samsung and are interested to find out what is missing in it. When will this phenomenon change?
Sony would instantly had my money if Z2 had a 32GB version. Having a monster phone with only 16GB storage and no "move to SD card" functionality is simply unacceptable in a 2014 flagship device.
afai, 25 Feb 2014the death of samsung is near.... sony the new top player, who agrees to me? Samsung will not die, it's a 80trillion industry and their mobile industry is just a portion of it. But surely it will hurt. But that's business, there's ups and downs. That's pretty normal. Take note, I'm a hard core Sony fan.
We need waterproofed midranger. Like xperia Go was. Its empty market in that bracket..

who agrees to me? Sony is definitely not top dog yet. That'll take a couple of years to undo what Samsung has accomplished. Samsung like Apple has an instant fan base & is overall still highly marketed. Just look at the coverage. Most tech sitrs extensively covered the S5, whereas the Z2 received minimal coverage at best. That's not to say Sony doesn't have a darn good product? That more so goes to say, that the best things available in this world aren't always publicized.
My only issue now? Which shall I purchase? Z1 compact or Z2? A good dilemma no?
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2014Hello z1 compact! The deal is sealed.Nobody. Samsung will most probably release another version, more expensive, with Snapdragon 805 and metallic body. Like it did with S4
