AnonD-97818, 10 Jan 2013Well Said Well Said, I liked your words:)Why are Sony phones so damn expensive. They used to give excuses of software features. Compare the Xperia Z or ZL to the Note II, there is nothing better other than the reality display. Hope Sony thinks logically and brings down the price of the phone when it is launched coz that is the only turn down for this beast
Astonishingly beautiful in its simplicity. The design I mean. It's gonna be a good year four SONY no doubt about that.
most of here complaining about the screen. as if they've go hands-on. relax. wait until the phone is at your face and shout out loud how beautiful z's screen is.
about viewing angle:
that's bcoz, its TFT LCD, when you watch
it on youtube its ugly but in real life
hands on its beautiful, that's why sony
called it "Reality Display" get it
Gamefreakz, 10 Jan 2013But it's not that important, why would you want to view it from the side?Just like a nice design, good viewing angles contribute to the overall good look of the phone, IMO
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2013Another bland-looking brick.Well, give me a bland looking brick anytime... Seeing the SGS3 for the first time nearly made me puke all over my keyboard
Gamefreakz, 10 Jan 2013But it's not that important, why would you want to view it from the side?well, it's not something you'll only notice from the side. Just take a look at the side by side comparison picture between Xperia Z and Note2, you'll see note 2 has a significantly higher contrast ratio. Z's screen is all blueish and greyish.
"Note that the Xperia ZL is smaller (shorter and narrower) than the Samsung Galaxy S III, but packs a bigger screen!" for me this simply translates into more accidental touches at the edge of the screen.
gsmarena, how about the viewing angle? It's the only thing that keeps me from getting myself an Xperia. If its viewing angles are as good as the One X's, then I'll let Sony have some of my money :D
The black bezel in bottom with on screen buttons looks awkward to me. Its makes screen cut out. In pics xperia z is looking prototype in front of S3. Rest the phone is very good and built nicly. Love to try HDR vdo
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2013Phone? Did you say phone? 5 inches is definitely not a phone. It's funny how people continue ... moreI'm not into the supersized phone/tablet hybrids either, but if the ZL is actually smaller than the SGS3, I would seriously consider this phone.
yowh, 09 Jan 2013still have to wait for s4 its better to be late in buying a phone than to regret anything.. ... moreBut if you wait, then you'll always be waiting for the next best phone to come out! Best just to get something that you like at that time. There will always be something better down the line.
