I well prefer the look of the other phones. The dark black glass ones look better from the back on some Sony phones to me. I don't see how just being a larger glass brick "literally" means it's an "AMAZING" design.
I just DON'T get how sony beats the other two with the design. Sony's design is one reason I DON'T go for it!
cesar, 18 Dec 2013Donot go for benchmark the note 3 has some feature of increasing cpu for benchmark in most app... moreExcept they showed it's performance still topped even without any tweaks. Also Touchwiz and Android being excessively laggy are as true as other OS's being flawless and lagless.
So try again?
Who lose in smartphone champion league?i m talking about these three phone.and who win?:-P
Donot go for benchmark the note 3 has some feature of increasing cpu for benchmark in most apps upto 20% since the chip is same the overal perfomance should be same but since touchwiz laggs alot i have note 3 exchanged mine with htc one love it waiting for htc m8 :) i would say z1 byt its software suxx big time the user interface of samsung is heavy sony is laggy but g2 is plastic so it sux not htc fan still consider samsung as best... And android laggs after an year i had note 2 before andd lovved it but still its not old but lags ...
can any one who tried the both note 3 and z1 tell which is the best? I think z1 but I want the ok from some one
Compare lg samsunp htc nokia is not equal to the sony is the best phone. I request u to buy sony mobile is not a bad
Erkity, 12 Dec 2013Firstly, I don't see how u can compare a phablet and a smartphone. (if uve used the note 3 why... moreLMFAO!!!!!! Where to even begin!??? Sony not being in the mobile game that long? IOS perfect? Saying others have to many features or not needed when the are mostly OPTIONAL? Stating you realize Sony's camera has many software problems, but then defending it???
You should really really really really really use your brain before posting....
And as far as phone to phablet...Obviously a phablet is a what? LARGE PHONE! And they have nearly identical hardware..Would you say the same thing to two different phones if they both had the same cpu but one was 4.5inch and the other 5inch??????
Firstly, I don't see how u can compare a phablet and a smartphone. (if uve used the note 3 why not use the Xperia Z Ultra? Or what ever it was called. Secondly when I look though the pictures u have taken with the the Z1 compared to the rest - I would much prefer them than the others. The Xperia z1 has some clear software issues like the panoramic settings etc but sony has not really been in the mobile game long, is only now that I have begun to noticed their phones. LG has been making phones for some time now and their most recent efforts in the G2 have shocked me. I don't like the look or the feel of the phone or their over lay software. And the same goes for Samsung. I had the s3 for about a week before going back to the iPhone. The sony xperia z1 has manage to pull me out of the poision apples. It's they don'. Need to ad 50 odd customisation (that you gave it a third place for because it lacked them) because like the iOS its perfect! It's better than i Expected there some tweaks that need to be changed but the basics have won me over! It's premium design also gives it the edge! A clear winner!
thank god i gave my S4 lagging crap and bought a Z1. probably Note 3 isnt lagging as s4. 3GB rams help?
but bloatware of Samsung and their support is so crap.
Z1 is so stylish and easy to handle with one hand.
rishi, 05 Dec 2013I want to buy a new phone. bt I dnt know what to buy..? I am just getting confuse between z1... moreNote 3 n9005 is a very good one. Z1 camera worst camera in low light . Display is excellent in note 3 while colors shifts in angle view in z1. battery life so good in Note 3 . Note 3 is a better phone
rishi, 05 Dec 2013I want to buy a new phone.
bt I dnt know what to buy..?
I am just getting confuse between z1... moreWell there is no such thing as a phone that would never hang. So that one cannot help you. Despite what millions of trollish jealous fanboys will tell IOS, WP, and Android all can have hang and crash.
Both phones you mentioned take good pictures. However the Z1 obviously takes better snaps. Also as you saw the Note3 takes much better pictures and has much camera options and functions.
The Note3 on the other hand leads in display and productivity.
The Z1 has water proof, and Note3 has SPen, features, and removable battery.
I want to buy a new phone.
bt I dnt know what to buy..?
I am just getting confuse between z1 and note3...
so plzzzz any one suggest me which is better phone...
I just want a phone with good camera quality and that never hang and have best features....
plzzzz suggest me a best phone fast...
About a week ago I finally got the chance to buy a new handset and replace my aging optimus. I tried all of them before buying at the store, the Note 3 is too big for me to handle in one hand, The G2 fits just right but feels too light to handle and the buttons at back could be annoying especially if I get a hard case or leather flip case. The Z1 is just perfect, the elegant design and waterproofing is just a plus though. I also tried the iPhone 5 but the screen is too small for me.
AnonD-206697, 16 Nov 2013One question - this review was done before Sony released a patch/update for the camera. Has t... moreHi even after the update for Sony xperia z1 the camera is still hasn't dramatically improved. If you really want good camera buy actual camera or Nokia 1020. Sony is waste of money
SNK, 25 Nov 2013profarmance wise note 3 is best ever. But display wise LG G2 is the best ever which have full ... moreThere's no doubt LG G2 and Samsung galaxy note3 is the top two DROID both made by South Korean companies. I have to admit Sony made a pretty good camera however not everyone wants camera. They want battery, function and reliability. And Sony does not fit into that. Sony is a decent brand. But for mobile phones they're no where near Samsung and LG yet.
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2013I don't know where you live, but it is quite obvious from your comment that you are an excessi... moreNot defending either comment, but the prices here (Kaohsiung, Taiwan) are at the moment:
LG G2 (16GB): 13,500 NTD [~454 USD]
Samsung Note 3 (16GB): 19,100 NTD [~644 USD]
Sony Z1 (16GB): 19,000 NTD [~641 USD]
LG G2 (32GB): 15,100 NTD [~509 USD]
Samsung Note 3 (32GB): 20,300 NTD [~683 USD]
Sony Z1: n/a
I still think I'm overlooking some detail, because from specifications and prices alone the LG G2 seems to stand out.
From my limited research (from last night, my HTC One died unexpectedly and I'm looking for a replacement), it seems the G2 has the best bang for buck, but I'd appreciate it greatly if someone could offer an opposing view in favor of the Z1 or the Note 3, taking into account the price difference of 200 USD.
