As everyone else here, as a long term Sony/Xperia fan, I'm very dissapointed with these specs. Sony are making a huge mistake by releasing a phone which is very similar to the previous top end model. Do they think consumers are fools?
kinda disappointed but I'm thinking the new positioning of the speaker are going to allow for larger front facing speakers ??
if the compact is 1080p I'll definitely go for it. Otherwise I can live with the Z1C until they do. (Z5C ???)
The completely curved edges so won't balance on edges no longer :(
not sure about those plastic corners either. The thick plastic lining between the glass and aluminium has got to go though. There is something else they could do for reception isn't there ?
Ridiculously long just like Z2. Not as extreme as Z1 but far from good. Wonder what Sony and Apple are thinking with their too long and too thin phones, or if they are thinking at all?
I wonder what kind of dealbreaker Sony will incorporate in the Z3 Compact, seems like they cant be happy if they dont screw up at least one important thing, really hope it isnt the display, it better be Full HD or im out of options for a new phone this year.
I think sony should equip Z3 at least with snap 805.. 1/2.3 inch sensor cam with 13 or 16MP so we can get bigger pixel = more quality..
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2014Maybe I should Buy SONY Z3!!!I will wait for Z4 :)
The Z2 has the exact same sized bezels (horizontally) as the S5 but no one complains about the S5's bezels as much as the Z2. Poor sony.
I am a sony supporter, but for z3 , i very disappointed, no surprises!size,ram,camera,No change！There is no difference z1,z2!
Major flop incoming because people are merely waiting on this to buy more Z2s. This is a flop launch if they haven't improved either the camera or introduce some new feature that is actually useful.

AnonD-121494, 21 Aug 2014So, basically they remade the Z2 with a new name? My, my, what innovation.Hey genius, it seems to work for the Apple and the iPhone and all the bother changing is the number! Get it?
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2014Hi expert, does IPhone devalue cause they release 5 & then within year 5s?It's a year on year update for the iPhone.
Even if those specs turn out to be the real ones, it still is better than your "Galaxy" S5 in every single aspect.. Hilarious.

does IPhone devalue cause they release 5 & then within year 5s?
if Sony want to have a six month cycle I think they would fare better releasing the premium flagship, then six months later a premium compact version,
seems senseless devaluing a flagship after six months.
