Sony is the best camera best durability.tis only required customers.
The only.thing that sony is selling you here is their brand name, other wise this phone is style with no substance. Lets hope the next phone from sony is better.
Bunyip22, 19 Oct 2013I agree, even though the Z1 is made of glass and aluminium it still looks average as the bezel... moreBut LGG2 being a flagship looks disgusting. It has small bezel but way uglier than z1 and s4. Have you seen one? There is no sense in buying a high-end device if it looks like a poor man's phone. It really looks like some old Alcatel phone.
Well the note 3 won in almost 80% of the categories which makes it the clear winner although its not everyone that'll go for the size.
I think the s4 should have been used instead as the note 3 is in a different league of its own. That way the G2 would push the s4 to its limits.

Sony could take a note out of LG's books...

Iím really shocked by those z1ís praising comments because z1 looks very ugly big and heavy for the 5inches in real world . Z1 is a big fail in china since alot of chinese brands can make prettier and slimmer phone these days than sony . Check meizu mx3 , vivox3 and oppo regarding design , xiaomi mi3 for price . I have experience very well with both viviox3ís 8mp camera and z1ís 20mp and i was really impressed by the vivo ís superb image quality with very fast focus and shutter speed , so itís not that more mp means better everytime . Since Z1 even failed badly in china , i donít understand where those praises come from which part of the earth .
All 3 are best phones till date, however, No one is absolutely perfect! Each of them is lacking in some areas. I'll chose Xperia Z1 bcoz, the other 2 are just the NEW phones those keep coming in every other 6 months with latest android,hi res camera, high clocking processor, more RAM, Full HD screen etc... etc....still nothing really special.. JUST ANOTHER NEW SMART PHONE!
But Sony... is actually giving something special..
that is... Exmor RS sensor, BIONZ, X-Reality, G lens, Triluminos Display. now this is TECHNOLOGY. Sony is very old name in technology than that of Samsung n LG.
So... I'm going to buy Xperia Z1. I'll wait for my next phone until I get night vision, LASER cutter, Holograph,3D etc in my phone....
G2 is GS4 and GS5 competition
Z1 is weak (I loved Sony so much)
I just Love Note 3 and GS4
Note3 is clear winner here. It is winner in 15 categories of this comparison. G2 is winner in 3 and Z1 in 4 categories.
If we give 3 points for winner,2 points for 1st runner up and 1 point for 2nd runner up, then Note 3 scores 50 points.G2 scores 36 and Z1 scores 34. So Note 3 is winner by a clear margin here.

Jakestar, 18 Oct 2013you all keep telling the same shit that Z1 have alot of disadvantages remember that Z1 have a ... moreI agree with Jakestar. Except the problem that was mentioned. There is no problem in Z1, the camera is superb, battery life for me is fine, apps or UI is wonderful, in my opinion the device is a beast, it's just waiting to show its full potential. Just a few twicks and it will shake things up. And right, thats what update is for.. i also think that all of device is actually pretty awesome but i'll go with XZ1
[deleted post]You believe that always biased fail site - PhoneAxxxx?
PhoneAxxxx trying the best shoot down any Samsung phone by even give false result of Note 3 screen quality. Such site only you will believe on it.
Note 3 screen quality has been review accurate in color and great brightness by professional site: DisplayMate, & Anandtech, as well here, also plenty others site. PhoneAxxxx is the only site said Note 3 inaccuracy in screen color and weak brightness.
rj23, 18 Oct 2013The forever Samsung troll. You haven't really changed since the release of GS4 huh? The cartoo... moreThanks rj23 - couldn't have put it better myself.
Yes, those are my opinions. It is my opinion that touchwiz and (to a lesser extent) LG's UI's are childish and garish to look at. You'll find that I am far from alone in that opinion (indeed, it's noted frequently in reviews of both devices).
But then again, that's the wonder of man - such diverse opinions. And god speed to all the Touchwiz fans: enjoy your device :)

Anonymous, 18 Oct 2013G2 is better than z1.On benchmarks? No, it isn't. Because of the way the XZ1 prioritises the GPU in certain tasks, it benchmarks higher than the G2 in just about every comparison I've seen.
Not that benchmarks mean a jot when we get to this level of processor power. Simple fact: all of these phones will power through just about everything with no trouble whatsoever - though I HAVE seen a Note 3 stutter (and it has been noted in a couple of online reviews). That's just a launcher thing, though - I expect Samsung to fix that with an update.
If you're meaning "generally" then I'd say that it depends greatly on what is important to you - nice viewing angles and tonnes of features? The G2 is better. Superb camera, great feel in hand and waterproofing? Z1 every time.
