looking forward to what the curved sensor will bring... hope Sony get's the JPEG processing act together... the Z2 was just making horrible use of its 20MP...
WikiLeaks, 18 Oct 2014Z3 was just months old, and now they're planning again on releasing a new Z4 series??No it's 1 month old. Sony are taking the p1ss
Sony are not learning from previous mistakes, the value of a bought Z series handset depreciates so quickly as soon as you've bought it you literally lose 75% of it's worth immediately. They need to stop banging two or even three phones out a year and just stick with one per year plus a compact. At least that way people can appreciate their phones, the average contract is 24 months minimum, 6 months between phones is just stupid.
Z4 sounds great by the way, but how annoyed would you be if you'd just bought a z3?
bryan lua, 18 Oct 2014sony still sleeping ..?
The Giant is awake and will continue to produce
High end Flag Ships!
LG G4 with 4K screen, 18 Oct 2014by the time the z4 would be released, the lg g4 would be released with a 4k screen - so again ... moreNot about best specs but overall offer. Anyway, 4k screen on a phone is walk, screen is the only real fault with the G3 as it causes lag!
Hope 8mp front camera and new curved sensor. S810 processor and I hope not 2k display which will kill the battery unless same with Z2's battery life span. For me, z2 is almost a perfect phone just need a better front for selfies it lack details hope sony listens this
Z3 was just months old, and now they're planning again on releasing a new Z4 series??
I still have Z, which I always underclock to 600-800mhz. We really dont need so much power with these mobile phones. Better if they improve the battery technology.
j-c-c, 18 Oct 20141.xenon flash 2.can use 20.7MP on superior autp mode 3.reduce the heating of phone 100% 4... moreThats a good wish list, count me in but I highly doubt hey would make such a product. It wont appeal to many as such a phone cant be aesthetically pretty and still have high battery life without beefy battery.
DantE O2, 18 Oct 2014& what's the use of another snapdragon flagship just like any other? 805?, what's new wit... moreSnapdragon 805 is just "higher clocks"? Heard of Adreno 420? And from the Z1 all Sony does is just getting "higher clocks", starting with S800 and going to the strongest variant of S801 in Z3. So yeah, they realize their mistakes by doing it again...
Guys... Please please please. Make USB 3.0 a STANDARD feature for all your new releases now, especially these high end ones. It's a no-brainer! Please!
2.can use 20.7MP on superior autp mode
3.reduce the heating of phone 100%
4.better front facing camera
5.louder front firing stereo speakers
6.large LED notification light(Z2 it's perfect there)
7.Dual Sim feature Sony.
8.up date by 1year please!
I'll buy this product even in very high price tag!(sony makes the best phone proved it again sony don't be left behind be ahead Sony Ericsson K810)
by the time the z4 would be released, the lg g4 would be released with a 4k screen - so again Sony wouldn't have the best spec'd device...
Gorgenapper, 17 Oct 2014Will they address self cracking screen?u got a faulty piece dude, dont think every phone is like that, mine has been thrown by my son number of times, still perfect, no cracks
3bed, 17 Oct 2014whats happening to sony?? every couple of months a new flagship...what the hell....and they ar... moreAre you saying that SD 801 & SD 810 are same or are you saying that 3 GB RAM & 4 GB RAM are same, or are you trying to say that the previous camera sensor & this curved sensor are the same, are you aware that this will be the beast which will put everything else to dust
Sony has been trying to regain its smartphone market thats why they roll out phones every half a year. The bad thing is they hurry too much and make mistakes on their handsets... like the camera on z2 and no change from z2 to z3. I hope z4 will satisfy my sony smartphones appetite. I wont buy a phone till the z4 is out, pliz sony, dont dissapoint me...again.
