MHanz, 12 Jul 2014On that note yes Samsung will be the first to copy the Sapphire coated display panel shields. ... moreGimmicks are what sell sometimes. If you wanna give people the perfect phone, you can earn loads from the 1st or perhaps 2nd generation, then no one will buy your phone cos it's just gonna go downhill after that.
No Snapdragon 805? No, but no.
What's the improvement then over the Z2? QHD display that'' eat the battery? 4K recording the 801 is barely capable of?
MHanz, 12 Jul 2014On that note yes Samsung will be the first to copy the Sapphire coated display panel shields. ... moreOh dear!!! Here we go again Apple is the first one to come up with sapphire coated phone and others will copy. Some already use sapphire coated for phone if I remember correctly.
no kidding? Sounds amazing!
the tyranny of those extra fraction of a cm.
AmateurHistorian, 12 Jul 2014Android OEMs are running out of phones to release with their 6 months product cycle. Just hold... moreOn that note yes Samsung will be the first to copy the Sapphire coated display panel shields. That said a lot of them copy each other, it just happens that most of what they copy or try to be first at is all gimmicky useless junk.
Samsung's heart rate sensor - Junk.
Apple's finger print scanner - Junk
HTC metal unibody - Junk
Samsung's bloatware S-"something" features
LG's similar bloatwares
The list goes on.
Marketing has convinced a lot of people that these things are somehow more important than say something as vital as good long battery life in all possible usage scenarios.
For their share of useless tech Apple is getting one thing right in a long time with the Sapphire coated shields. Can't say the same for anyone else in the recent years with their gimmicks that have stayed as pointless gimmicks.
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2014what real advantages does a bezel less phone have?Hold one and see. I can tell you haven't tried the LG phones. The ability to wield such large screens as if they were smaller phones is very liberating.
Sun Sand, 12 Jul 2014I am not buying a Sony Flagship until they Start trimming bezels the way LG is doing!!So go buy your inferior branD; why are you on SONY Post...
Cause Sony Top Notch!!!
Android OEMs are running out of phones to release with their 6 months product cycle. Just hold your horses, wait till iPhone 6 come out and copy and release something "big" next March.

This would be a flop of a release if there is nothing to write home about. Z2 already serves plenty as an upgrade over the Z1.
ABADDON, 12 Jul 2014I doubt that the next galaxy note will amaze many buyers...How do you know that? That Note in the photos is the first generation Galaxy Note, not the Note 4. Or do you know something which we, the others, do not know? Do you have an insider in Samsung Mobile, don't you?
Dear sony, plz make it bezelless.. All of your product still big bezel
