So while the review here said the colors lack punch, but in amobil dot no they said the only possible downside of the display was over saturated colors like on AMOLED displays.
By the way, video camera performance at night, perfect colors, great clarity and very good detail, beats the Note 2 easily. When watchin this video, see on the bottom left when HDR is on and off, you will see why HDR has to be used with caution, esp towards the end it introduces truckloads of noise. Also watch the audio icon moving from phone to phone, and listen to the Nexus 4 for a good laugh, so pathetic, distorted beyond recognition! LG as usual! LG and HTC are really the clowns on the industry, Nexus 4 should be bundled with a big red clown nose for the owners looks to match their brain. Ok heres the video, get ready to let the Z amaze your eyes and ears.

It's a minor problem and how many times do you view your phone in extreme angles? Crappy display? You should get your eyes checked. Sxs crushes the s2 same as the sxt crushes the s3
Guys I saw this phone in person in one of the Sony Centers and if you want to buy this phone I advise you to check it yourself because the screen is horrible. I agree it has very high resolution but viewing angles are a joke and also the contrast.
As usual Sony packs crappy displays into their flagship devices - really a pity. The same situation was with the Xperia S and Xperia T. When will they learn? Don't they see what HTC is doing, what Apple is doing in this area?
And also - as we can see from this review - the whole "Exmor RS" is only marketing BS, nothing revolutionary.
This phone should be prices $600 without contract, at maximum.
In the preview, you wanted to get another XZ to make sure the screen on the tested device is not faulty and that Sony actually released a flagship with poor contrast and colour saturation. Have you done that?
What is the battery life ?
I remember gsmarena always has a section for the battery life test. I didn't see any battery lift part for this Sony phone.
I think in the future battery life is one of the most important items besides displays and overall hardware spec(CPU and RAM).
so bad battery life, bad viewing angle, bad software... FAIL.. GS4 can't get here fast enough.
hellllo GSM, we don't want to wait till the dooms day to see the results of battery test for this beauty. faster pleaaaaase.
We are waiting for Sony Xperia Z battery test. Would you please results with us?

for those who's complaining/mentioning? that there's not battery life test on the review...
its been pointed out that GSMArena is running the tests and will update the review once done
hopefully its a good sign - that its taking so long - means the battery is lasting pretty well
plus dont forget they are prob going to test with stamina mode on and off? hopefully
