Could you check the battery life with LTE on/off, stamina mode enabled, screen on time (at 70% brightness), video playback time. That's a very important part when choosing a phone so why is it missing in your review?
Great review and deep... thx GSMArena..but, but.. sorry and excuse me.. am I the only one miss this? no battery review yet? or u guys still working on it?
If Htc One comes with 4.7 full hd screen,will simply destroy this in terms of ergonomycs.and dual speakers,better camera..you know,compared to Htc,sony is a minimum half year behind.
A very well done and clean cut review indeed. Alas, indeed Sony's competitors are about to lunch their products on Barcelona, but for January to February, this is still the top dog. And considering their plans of an early release, I don't mind seeing Sony on the Top 5 of 2013 Smartphone Manufacturers.
Sigh, Screen and Camera sections were disappointing. :(
I wanted this device to be wayy better than the S3 atleast. Now, if the S4 isn't that great, I'd buy sony for the great development support.
How can you say that it has better contrast than s3 mini(I see the s3 mini every day and I hqve to say that has a really good contrast) and after you say that has terrihle black and white..the XPERIA Z ROCKS!!!!!
where is my cookie??
no for real, this phone is so freaking awesome, but I wonder about lousy 13MP camera unit, I mean sony come'on!!
you make the best camera sensors in the world
why did you prefer to go cheap on this flagship?
other than that AWESOME :D
