In reply to your non false statement that Amoled burns in I said "Amoled does not suffer from burn in. I t has the rare possibility for it to happen. Not even close to the same thing."
Which obviously states it can happen, but is not a very common thing as you try to pass it off as. I have an S1 and even the original first large Amoled/HD capable device "Omnia HD". And neither have problems at all.
You can also get dead pixels on LCD.
If you use movie mode where it is accurate the tint is not really there. And even without it it's not really there so much. That's just a thing of saturation and white balance.
Which speaking of..especially in Movie Mode Amoled actually has a more proper white balance than most LCD displays have which favor a tone that's overly warm...Not the same as accurate.
No Amoled's reflective to brightness ratio is actually better. Especially when you account for the fact that screens like the S4 "contrary to what you claim" and the Note3 get notably brighter to a large degree when in auto brightness. Up to 34% brighter for the S4 alone and maybe even more on the Note3. Making them top out sunlight visibility. Also if I remember correctly an app like Lux can work the full brightness magic without need of auto brightness. And to think back of older Amoled you would have to account for older LCD and TFT weaknesses.
If you are talking "accuracy" then an overly warm white balance and over saturated screen with fake blacks and contrast is not "accurate". And again. In Movie Mode these Amoleds hit apx 95-100% color accuracy and still retain real blacks and contrast and also has one of the most proper white balances. It makes it overall hit a mode of full realistic and LCD might not ever be able to portray...
All these things you say about Amoled and prais LCD are very old misconceptions.

The Zoom is very good but has issues, as DP review mentioned in a recent shootout between it and the Z1, 1020 and the G2. It came 3rd.
But, as you seem to be taking issue with my "best Android camera" statement (fair enough, it's difficult to qualify), I'll amend it:
It's the best flagship Android smartphone camera.
All the best, I'm off out,... :)

Get it? And the Zoom does give it strong competition. So does the NX and or Galaxy camera. But that is stepping outside of phones for the cameras with Android...never the less they are Android. And the Zoom is a phone so it's well within the limits.
AnonD-19190, 18 Oct 2013I love Sony This is a typical Sony fanboy's comment.
No logical / analytical based
I owned both LG G2 and Xperia z1
Based on my experienced and observation LG G2 is more comfortable in hand also easy to use the back buttons rathan than the side button on Z1.
Both good in camera quality.
G2 does better in terms of Colour accuracy.
In battery comparison
G2 lasted for 14 hours Browsing.
Z1 lasted 7.5 hours Browsing.
I love both...
Sony Xperia Z1 with the premium design????
There is nothing premium about the bar shaped smart phone.
The choice of metal and glass for the casing is not new either as Apple has already done so.
Well I don't wanna argue with Sony fanboys but this is why Sony is losing the market shares and the revenue.
They are no more creative and innovative leader in the electronic industry and certainly not in their strategic plans.
Wake up people! Stop paying for the brand name!

Not even c... moreA couple of points - AMOLEDs do have burn-in issues, it's a well documented by-product of the technology as it ages. The only AMOLED phone I've owned had burn-in where the clock and signal displays sat in the top right of the screen. It took a year to occur, but there it was.
Yes, you can tone down the colour gamut on modern Samsungs, which is a thoughtful touch - though the blue/green tint remains. And yes, blacks are blacker, no doubt. No arguments here.
But you're wrong on outdoor visibility - all three of the top LCD based Androids are brighter and more visible in direct sunlight than, say, the S4; It has been commented on more than once in a number of reviews and comparisons. My own experience with living with an AMOLED phone has taught me likewise - it was terrible outside.
But it's all preference, isn't it? I prefer LCD panels for the cleaner whites, more accurate colour balance and fidelity. S'just me.

As the article above states, 8mp images from the z1 are cleaner and more detailed than the 13mp images of it's two competitors.
And to the other guy - I'm well aware of my own insecurities, ta :) I'm just procrastinating and avoiding finishing off some other work.
I'm well aware of the faults of the Z1 but they're NOT crushing faults and its strengths, for me, outweigh them. You may feel different. Good for you.

AnonD-186803, 19 Oct 2013What he said (below).
My priorities are different from yours. I don't like AMOLED displays... moreAmoled does not suffer from burn in. I t has the rare possibility for it to happen. Not even close to the same thing.
Amoled is saturated and LCD shows grey instead of black with lack of contrast.
The latest Amoled does not come at it's most saturated state. It comes some what saturated and has an option that sets it at near perfect accuracy, but still retains real blacks and contrast making it more accurate that LCD and is easier on the eyes.
Also Lg's and Sony's displays are also saturated. So they are saturated, weaker in sun, lack blacks/contrast, response times, saturation and accurate settings, and LCD consumes more power on an average basis.

Some users still comparing zultra. Pls compare the king of smart phone Z1 and Note3 .tis too is my choice is Z1 because Best featers best durability.best offers in company side so iam go for Sony.
