None of the self proclaimed photo experts here would be able to tell the difference in a blind test. And many say that lumia 920 is a great cam phone but the Z is better overall. In fact they say 920 is the best so then I'm sure they will say Z is best now.
I'll pass on this one as the A15 monsters are coming out in a couple of months. I'm particularly looking forward to an 1080p Nexus.
Xperia z is very good features and stylish phone

Anonymous, 18 Feb 2013The camera and its specs is(unfortunately) one of the biggest selling points of smartphones to... moreOh, and I forgot to add: you can't count megapixels from LPH like that. Every line (line pair) requires at least TWO pixels to resolve (this is the Nyquist frequency), so you should double your "effective" pixel count for all your example devices. It does not change the relative outcome of course (The Xperia Z is still more effective relative to megapixel count than the 808).
The results are hardly surprising anyways, because it' easier to make really sharp small lenses for tiny 1/3" sensors than the relatively large 1/1.2" sensor of the 808.
Sony always seems to put weaker speakers on there phones an never seem to improve in this section,which seems very odd indeed,on Febuary 25th in Barcelona i am sure the others will have seen what the Xperia Z as on offer an produce more better camera features on there phones,Samsung with S4 will be a big challenge to this Smartphone
Oh come on, they are all the same now days, same over priced piece of hardware.... just pick the design u like and the screen size u need... the rest is the same in all of them (almost, and to average user unnoticable)

i believe that gsmarena refer to these phones when they mentioned the best 8mp shooters..
go to gsmarenas photo and video compare tool and you'll see what u get
What I don't understand is why did they put the camera's 13mp under disadvantages. If it's hardly any better than last year's best 8mp, then it is still a good camera just with additional mp for those who love big photos. GSMArena were all praises for the iphone 5 camera, and if Xperia Z's camera is not better or worse than that of the iphone 5, then it is at par with the former and give due credit.

mixa, 18 Feb 2013well it killed S4 before its even born.
I guess thats enough for Sony.And besides most retail... morer u kiddin? haha
XZ's 13MP ddnt even manage to beat the cameras of s3 and note2's 8MP whch are released last year, for 2013 samsung will launch their 13mp models, and i believe that s4 and note3 will pack maybe the best cam for 2013. well HTC One _with the Ultrapixels thing_ and new nokia models whch will be unveiled are the greatest competitors..
abt processing power is again on dark area bcoz we dont know what s4 will be packing..
screen hmm XZ is certainly better than the 720p SuperAmoled.. we still dont know what SuperAmoled Full Hd will look like,, but in terms of preference, large number of geeks love SuperAmoled..
Battery> No doubt new galaxies will be better than XZ
UI-elegance for Sony
UI-fun, features and capabilities for Touchwiz
design-I bet for XZ but i like to have a removable battery and ergonomic and lightweight smartphone so ill go for plastic, Sammy just need to improve the premium look
Audio, i dont know but androidauthority Galaxy s3 > xperia T bcoz gal s3 features 7band equalizer and crispier and louder sound.
