Sony brags about their 21 mp camera: they FAILED big time in the camera software
Samsung brags about their benchmark scores: they are caught cheating to make the scores better
LG never updates their phones to the latest version
(Sarcastically) Dear GSMarena, why shame Sony any further by consistently comparing it to other top notch phones that outclass it in nearly every category, aspect & feature set? Almost every GSMarena review that includes the Z1 ends in utter defeat. So why set up each review as if it were a grueling battle to the death? When in actuality. I've gotten the idea from other GSMarena reviews & comparisons that Sony smartphones seems to be nothing more than water resistant punchlines to magnify the awesomeness of it's Android peers. So I beg you O' mighty GSMarena have mercy on Sony & spare it from comparisons to far superior smartphones. (which seems to be every other phone, including the one's from the 1980's). Feature Sony in reviews more in it's league, for example? Sony Xperia Z1 vs. Barbie Bubble Gum phone. Then maybe, just maybe? It'll have a chance at actually competing. Thanks!;-)
I had a facepalm moment at the UI section. Sony landing last because of "a lack of customization and features" is a joke. I'd rather have a clean UI that has SMART features that help with my user experience (Smart Connect, Stamina Mode, Location-based WiFi etc) than to have a cluster of features I wouldn't normally use thrown at my face... what more with Samsung's disgusting Neon Green shade all over the UI, bleh
all 3 are top notch smartphones each have there own up'S and downs.but more importantly you have to have ALL three to judge it by your opinion. note 3 is a very great phablet and come's all features,but its just too big for me.LG G2 also is a great phone with its thin bezel great camera(ois feature).and now stuck with either G2 or Z1.So i'm gonna go with Z1(just updated its camera)it's a phone with all around use EVEN it lack's viewing angles and big bezel,not much of a problem for me..
next flagship 2014.
The concern is: was Note 3 the only phone that cheated on the benchmark or the other two did also.
as gsmArena mentioned, if u pay for high price stuff u must hope to av a premium stuff to show dats SONY for u, but note 3 is next if i need something really smart than z1 in software and fun. i think having note 3 and z 1 is deal......lg is out of order to me. xperia z1 looks cool plus water resistance i love use extraordinary and premium look stuffs. Sony are d best in design but lack in software.
AnonD-19190, 18 Oct 2013but here no doubt samsung note 3 have a edge in ram and processor because xperia z1 announced ... moreYea it was announced hours before the note 3. you make it seem like it was weeks before. Plus EVERY Android manufacturer cheats on benchmarks but I guess you don't want to hear or believe that because you just want to see the faults of Samsung. And no, it was clear in the review the note 3 basically dominated it. But u know what , you cabbe biased all you want, but in the end your Z1 lost to The G2 and definitely the note 3. Read before you post.
There is no doubt that note 3 is a winner in almost every aspect.i like g2 on the second place.sony did a great job with z1.but still Sony needs to work on battery life and size of a handset(5inch screen and way bigger than g2)and battery life such a disappointment.IP58 certified is not for everyone with this size.
I would love to see pictures and videos comparison which captured from underwater...
note3 the best phone loses the won competition by stupid idea of region lock!!!
For me g2 is in the top of my list, i love the guest mode features, sexy designe, slimmer bezel, but still not the phone for me... I want a phone that have a 64gb or higher internal memory.. . I dont care if the phone has a non removal or a removal battery.
Sony clearly needs to work on battery optimization. The poorest performer amongst the 3, and often with its siblings.
AnonD-61784, 18 Oct 2013The winner is Xperia Z1. -It has the best looking handset -Best Camera department -Best bui... moreYou should really read the article. Z1 hasn't entirely ruled on the camera. Shame on you.
After reading this article i have decided to go with LG G2 and just ordered LG G2 32gb Black Variant, thanks gsmarena you made my confusions clear, did a lot of research for last one week to decide with G2 and Z1. and thanks a lot for www.fb.com/lgoptimusg2 guys trust me if you consider overall features with respective to Z1 g2 is way ahead of it. Althought Note 3 is a good option for phablet, sorry samsung im not convinced
a great battle between all three monsters, i never gonna choose a phablet its always out of my mind, too big to carry so the cometetion lies between G2 & Z1 and for me the winner is G2 clearly. bezel less knock on ois camera just awesome and decently priced. well Z1 is also a great option but failed major of its camera tests so G2 rocks
Wahaha theres too many Sony fanboy here lol!! STOP BEING SO TRYING HARD! Your phone is not yet really SMART like note3 ;)
AnonD-19190, 18 Oct 2013sony is best in almost all aspects. samsung and lg both uses higher cpu then xperia but sony x... moreIn every aspect ?
The display and battery life are defeated by the other two competitors.
for camera i would pick 808(41mp 1/1,2sensor, ND filter)
but with note3 i get large screen,memory32+,4k,android with pen and other sensors and great interaction.
there is qx10/100 and will be more. it just has best specs, having better camera would be just overkill in comparing to other phones. can someone beat its next 2014 generation (s5,note4)?
