I wanted to buy the Z2 but I stopped for the lack of 32GB internal, I hope Z3 will have 32GB version or I will skip it too.
I'll wait for the release of z3.. Then the price of z2 will drop... I'll buy the z2..
This is Japanese Style just like their car makers, always comes up with new facelift. mmm.. it could be a trend for others to follow... so this is Z2-01.
On a more constructive note, if the leaks and rumours are true, I'll skip this as it is not a worthy enough upgrade from the Z2. Not criticising, just respecting Sony's 6 month release cycle. I'll wait for the Z4 unless these rumours turn out to be false!

Using my Z2 on the phone today travelling with a colleague using his Nexus 5 both streaming the C'Wealth Games on 4G! Guess which phone got hotter and by the way genius, it was not made by Sony. It is what powerful processors do in phones or any computer for that matter. If you have something meaningful to say, happy to hear it, just stop trolling.
If it has the same shooter quality, the same minute 16GB INTERNAL storage, the same UI, the same everything like its predecessors, it's not worth buying.

This version looks extremely thin, and I hope it's the Z3. But with Verizon Wireless rumored to get a version of the Sony Xperia phone. I'm wondering if this is that version, possibly with the water resistant body removed to make this a thinner and non water resistant body that would be cheaper to sell on Verizon in the United States. It would explain the almost identical features of the current Z2. Kind of how the Z1S was modified for T-Mobile. This is just a wild guess on my part.
Sony sucks. There. I said it. Overhyped, overpriced, overrated same device every 6 months and behind everyone else in camera, features etc
Z, Z1, Z2, Z3... ZZzzzzzZZZzZZZZZzZz. Little boring
Nothing too new to waste money on it.
I like the idea on maintaining the same design over a longer period of time. You don't change your phone every 6 months so it is for those who didn't find the previous one fit to like the new one. by the time you are due for a new phone (maybe in a year or a year and a half), there would be a new design and spec.
Hopefully you improve internal storage (at least 32g), camera quality and sustainability...
geordie81, 24 Jul 2014But do you not think he is right, if the z3 comes with them specs and almost the SAME hardware... moreIts only ripping off if you have no choice but to buy it. I agree, releasing an identical phone is odd.
Just because its new you don't have to buy it to replace your z2, then complain how you've been 'ripped off' by Sony.
