Please also include the basic phone features in your test! ie. talk time, reception etc.
After all, we need to use phones to talk, right?
Note 3 kill overall :D
Thx Sammy for this great device ;)
[deleted post]agree 100%. And I think XZ1 is the best of all, It got waterproof feature which is very useful in my country which only has 2 seasons (summer and rain), I don't care about huge bezels or what as long as the phone's build is good, and take a better picture with it's camera I'll buy it. And The Sony's UI is far way better than these two imo. I don't too much colors UI
[deleted post]yeah right!! +1000000000000
and benchmarks for me are irrelevant, we know that samsung is cheating on benchmarks!!

People who bought Xperias are just making excuses for Sony.
If poor viewing angles was an intended privacy feature Sony came up with, why aren't they advertising it?!
Die hard Sony fans just keep telling that AMOLED screens hurt their eyes, but in reality Note 3 came last with brightness in this test. AMOLEDs actually can be toned down and gives the best brightness filter control than LCDs.
I still use LCDs, but to totally be ignorant and dismiss AMOLED screens, especially when they can accurately replicate true colors just baffles me.

The Note 3's glass broke, but it was still functional. Z1 is lesser in battery stamina, lesser in features and less versatile than a Note 3.

It's just something about amoled that doesn't seem sharp as LG IPS displays. Ive tried the note 3 and it's better than the s4 display but I still think the g2 was better.
onex, 20 Oct 2013amoled is not over nothing!!!!! ips lcd ftw! i will assume you haven't seen a note 3 and made that comment out of ignorance. The note 3 amoled screen is arguably the best screen available.
LG might have had to give up microSD support because Google asked for it to choose LG as the maker of the Nexus 5. That's my guess.
Having that disadvantage I definitely can't consider the G2 as my next upgrade, although I know a 32GB version is available, it's not enough to store all my media; specially music and videos, that having such a nice and big screen I'll want to, sorry LG. The "problem" gets more noticeable when you do the maths:
Note 3: 24GB usable out of 29GB for the 32GB version, add the 60GB from a 64GB SD card, you have 84GB in total.
Z1: 11GB+60GB= 71GB.
Both much more storage than the G2 (only some 24GB).
Not a real problem for many, though.
So, I think I'm going for the Z1, the Note 3 is already available in my country (Peru) and the Z1 is yet to arrive in a couple if months, but I'm not in the hurry do I'll check both hands on first n.n
Oh, but I'm more interested in the Z Ultra. I wanted a bigger screen device this time as I have a nice compact one already (Razr i). But stupid Sony is unlikely releasing the Z Ultra here... So we'll see.
Btw, the three of them are great, it's just up to each of us to pick the one that fits your liking better.
No one is an absolute "best" here. Guys, understand that and stop arguing about it. You look stupid doing it.
z1 is the best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love it !!!!!!!!!!!!!
g2 is not bad
note 3 is a phablet
this compare is wrong
note 3 vs xperia z ultra vs one max
DannyO, 20 Oct 2013Lost? haha lost at what?? Every review I read puts the Z1 above the g2 and on pair with the n... moreWat??!?!? Now your really delusional. I watched a drop test and the z1 screen wouldn't even turn on. The note 3 outlasted the 5s, the phone that u praised for build. The z1 is mediocre for a flagship. Definitely not on par with g2 or note 3. Speaker is definitely not all that. Battery is no comparison to note 3. Did you look at the video and web browsing??? Terrible. Now you are just being ridiculous. For a flagship that barely last as long as a 5s? Build is great but saying its better just because of build while not judging anything else is just biased and stupid. Plus Sense is much smoother and zippy than Sony ui. And for a phone that has a 5 inch screen and the size of note 3 and weighs like a brick, you aren't backing it up very diligently. And the z1 still barely won the camera section. Your are blinded by beauty and its making u look foolish

Every review I read puts the Z1 above the g2 and on pair with the note 3, check pocketnow for example.
FYI, best IU is vanilla android, second is Sony's UI, screen is gorgeous, camera.. well do I need to tell you what you already know? speaker is pretty good actually, not on the same level as HTC One but still quite good, bad memory.. what? battery lasts 1 and a half day which is more than enough.
And yes build quality is excellent, did you see the drop test vs the note 3? the Z1 never broke while the note 3's screen was all shattered.
But w/e I guess you love phones that look like dove soaps and have cheap plastic materials.
The majority if iphone users don't give a rats a$s about the specs of the device! They only brought the phone because it looks good like a trophy wife!
DannyO, 20 Oct 2013As long as the note 3 and lg g2 are made of cheap plastic the Z1 is the superior phone here. ... moreYour iphone isnt full HD, has an average battery life,copied android drop down menu,good for call n txt, browsing u need to keep zooming,TONS OF BEZELS.
DannyO, 20 Oct 2013You can say a lot of things about the iPhone but when it comes to build quality & design, ... morePut a note 3 vs a iPhone 5s on a table and let anyone choose wat they want, I bet you my life that most will choose the note 3 or g2. Yea iPhone got build so what? Look at drop tests and see the iphone lost to the note 3. You say we will be humiliated just by build but iPhone users will be and already have been memorized by screen and features alone. Apparently Samsung and Lg hold their own in the market with their so called bad build quality. You claim Sony is superior in build but it CLEARLY lost in what matters as a phone. You can talk design all you want, but you do know where sony stands between Samsung. Right? Beneath them. It clearly isn't the best UI , not the best screen FAR from it, camera is good, speaker bad, memory bad, battery bad. You saw what happened when it went up against the note 3 and it took that L. So you can say " Oh my phone looks better, it looks pretty" all you want but at the end of the day all I'm gonna say is your phone may look nice but my phone is better. everything you claimed the z1 is better than the g2 and note 3, it still lost. So don't get embarrassed because you already lost.
