GGGGG, 24 Jul 2014If this has an internal memory of 16GB. This would be considered "GARBAGE". What can... morehi Mate! have you heard that they support microSD slot up to 128GB? buy that and you'll have 16gb + 128GB total of storage.. upgrading to 4.4 will enable you to move everything to microSD card.. problem solved? it's cheaper than buying higher internal storage
Amez, 24 Jul 2014Sony just dont learn whats with this 16gb internal storage why dont they ever up the storage o... moreYou do realize there's an SD card slot, right? My Z1C has a 128GB card in it ....
Take note that this is probably become irrelevant as Sony is allowing now for you to move apps to the SD card. (mid range models with 4.4 like the M and M2 but they may allow this for all their models in the near future)
Sony just dont learn whats with this 16gb internal storage why dont they ever up the storage on the phones..guess this is out of my list.
joonius, 24 Jul 2014Sony will announce it and then release it about 6 months later. exactly....worst product cycle
First atleast make your Z2 available across d globe....no signs of Z2 available throught India and they r thnkng of Z3...pathetic...plzz learn something frm apple and samsung..
Sony will announce it and then release it about 6 months later.
SONY please update this
1.improvements with the camera software.
3.walkman player with walkman amp
4.more improve battery without sacrificing the size of the phone.
5.stay with the your UI
6.keep the IP rating because not everyone will test their mobile underwater.
7.reduce the bloatware, i know that you have few bloatwares than other phones.
8.much louder stereo speakers.
9.includes acessories like noise cancelling headphones and wireless charger inside the box.
11. maintain the build material of the phone, just change the design. no matter if theres no Sony Logo in the front, you still have the logo at the back. people will still recognize it because of the unique design.
conclusion : because if you have a stable software, strong camera,speaker,battery performance, people will still buy it, even the price is more than 20% higher than the current flagship.
It's funny and ridiculous how people commenting to something which are net yet announced formally. I guess people really stopped thinking the right way. Maybe, common sense is not so common after all nowadays. Or maybe, they just want to comment for the sake of commenting without really having the knowledge of the final product. It just shows how narrow-minded people are, nowadays. Technology gets better and better but people are becoming more stupid and dumb.
GoToSchool, 23 Jul 2014If those are the features of the Z3 then I'd rather wait for Z4. I hope the Z3 has better feat... moreYou don't "need" to upgrade your Z1. The Z1 is perfectly fine in specifications and does it's job for more than every day use. Unless your phone is broken, then, fair enough =P
these specs are for a new flagship in second half of 2014? No QHD? no 805? same sensor? then why even bother to change the name? its either not true or SONY has lost its mind "again"
Preliminary specs are ridiculous. Guess that is what happens when you refresh a flagship twice a year. Only minor updates.
my guess work of z3 to feature
1. 2.5 ghz processor
2. hi resolution audio
3. xenon flash/ dual colour led flash
4.4k 60fps recording and ois lens
5.camera with shutter control manual
6. speakers to have s amplifier built in for headphone/ internal
7.front 5 mp selfie camera with auto focus
8. ip 68 certification
9. battery to improve to 3800mah and add quick charge
all xperia series may get accessary support may include next version of qx 10/100 camera with flash
and smart watch integration..
bundle offer may be smart watch/high noise reduction headphones...
people have to buy high resolution audio headphones separately
Wtf still stuck on fhd and snap 801. This should have been QHD display and snapdragon 805.
If this has an internal memory of 16GB. This would be considered "GARBAGE". What can I do with greater performance if I cannot even do more than the previous smartphone models?
When Chinese brand phones are coming out with 64GB storage Sony is still settling with 16GB. Seriously?
i don't really know the specs of the latest Sonys in detail, because my opinion is that Sony doesn't exist in this competition. moving on... how can you release three devices that have almost the same specs? and call them flagships? really? nice. i think what gsmarena is trying to say is "Sony refreshes its flagship line twice every year", because it releases only fails!!!
