The f-number of a lens can be thought of as its normalised aperture, that is it is the actual aperture (strictly the diameter of the entrance pupil)divided by the focal length of the lens, but it is commonly expressed as the reciprocal of that.
The field-of view (or angle of view) relates to the size of the sensor in combination with the focal length of the lens.
I don't understand how exacly the endurance rating calculated, but I think there is something wrong.
Basicaly if tt, wb and vp are considered to be the same, then LG G2 should be a clear winner in the er, not Note 3. CMIIW.
Somebody explain to me how under the camera test, they show the Note 3 as having the smallest field of view, "Now let's look at the field of view. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 lens is narrowest, followed by the LG G2 and finally, the Xperia Z1 with the widest." The specs list the Note 3 as having an aperture size of f/2.2 compared to the G2's aperture size of f/2.4, doesn't that mean the Note 3's lens is wider than the G2? Or am I missing something? Or is there a lens spec somewhere I'm not seeing?
SUMAN, 31 Oct 2013Note 3 is the best... Samsung Galaxy S Duos Is best boss try it
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2013No need to argue Try G2 The new king of Android smartphone.Sure.....
I really don´t care about brands,
but have to say that I am now used to waterproof smartphones since I bought the Sony Xperia Active two years ago, and now I can´t go back to a non-waterproof phone. The idea of being afraid to be near the water and sand on﻿ the beach or just making a simple call under heavy rain is unthinkable. Try to have a waterproof phone and you will see the freedom that you get with it. Sony is the first brand to give us flagship models with water/dustproof protection. Hurray for that!
p.s. And no! A smartphone with a waterproof case is not the same! Already tried ;-)
mmmm in update xperia Z1, is best.show : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2496559
well.. japanese XZ1(SOL23 and SO-02f) is better than global XZ1
tailored and expanded to 32gb with IR blaster
Above all Sony is durable/waterproof than those 2 competitors. Try to dunk those two phones in to swimming pool.. I think those specs will change.:)

For many, if not most, people, 16gb of space (around 12gb usable) is simply not enough. Why LG even considered a model with less than 32GB of storage escapes me.
LG G2 is the best for me
long lasting battery life
great camera with OIS
REAR KEYS IS PERFECT...

You are making the assumption that the majority of people in this world country hop. I understand it is frustrating to many but I would not go as far to say most.

You forgot one key thing in your review. The samsung note 3 is region locked and therefore not suitable for globe hoppers. The Sony Z1 and the LG g2 aren't region locked. Imo note 3 comes in last due to it being region locked. it's a deal breaker for most people.

It has SD slot and removable battery. Search "LG G2 Taobao" on the Google to compare the price at the stores on Taobao. There is one 3250 RMB (about 535 USD if I choose the correct currency rate). You may also compare the price at other stores on Taobao.
