I saw this phone last weekend. I got to say nice great. But what I realy hate is that it is too late to distribute here. Anyway as always both had a good and bad. Now thats weird is it me or just coincidence that its test in antutu, benchmark and gpu and others were below. Maybe too much customize in ui?? Xperia z or htc buterfly handsdown great value
What a beast will the M7 be with a smaller screen, bigger battery, and a revamped UI... Can't wait... Stereo speakers, a good camera and a perfect design and build quality. Mind blown!
Finally Htc appear to have nailed their audio output - and might even give Apple a run for their money there from the look of it?!
Also pleased that the screen is looking good too. Owned an S3 and hated the over saturated colours, and the terrible colour clipping artefacts seen when watching videos.
Hmm which one of these is going to tempt me away from my iPhone 5 back to android then? hmm, lets see what the S4 brings to the table - first sign of shitty colours and clipping and i wont be getting that.
Good phone. I still prefer Sony Xperia Z. White is white and not blue, hate that at S3 and Note2 and bad design, but they are making good phones. Viewing angel really dont care with Xperia Z. I saw some video samples and photos, i dont know why they are bashing camera, video with HDR mode in night is far better then any other phone out there and photos too. Nokia is making good photos too, but i dont like Windows OS in phones.
My vote goes for Sony.

Its not wh... moreHTC, it seems, has done an iPhone 5-like job at screen calibration, as you can see in the last chart of the slideshow below, reaching an almost perfect color gamut representation and true white, whereas the Xperia Z boasts wider sRGB gamut than the standard, oversaturating the colors a bit, and displaying a "colder" 7500K white in comparison with the 6500K of the HTC Butterfly.
Not only this, but the tests also showed that HTC's handset, despite its lower 385 nits brightness, compared to Sony's 400-440 nits, depending on the screen area measured, has a higher contrast rating of 1153:1, against the Z's 570:1, which makes black appear grayish. The higher contrast and better reflective coating also make the HTC Butterfly more visible in direct sunlight than the Xperia Z.
Here you can see the blue white in tghe HTC again, in the drape over his shoulders. Its not white at all on the HTC. But this is also where you can see the higher contrast of the HTC, there is slightly more detail in the brightest parts.

With very very unnatural colours. Man people don't look Orange in colour, this is not alice in wonderland.....

And I am not a HTC fanboy, as I said earlier, I like Sony's UI better than HTC sense.

Why does Galaxy S3 look so cheap when you use it? Yes, its because of the blueish tint. I hate blueish whites.

Why you making up stories?
AnonD-86903, 18 Feb 2013not if being looked at straight forward. but with angles ( which is not so important) i agree.Ultimately, the choice of devices belongs to the User, and I think people will be happy with either of the devices.
I still tip in favor of Sony's Custom cooked UI over HTC Sense.

2.) At 100% brightness Xperia Z colours look very washed out, but even One X display colours are very accurate at that brightness level.

AnonD-86903, 18 Feb 2013nice phone but still prefer Z over it. both have same specs but Z looks to me more stylish.I think Butterfly has an awesome display compared to Xperia Z
Heres some Side by side of Butterfly and Xperia Z, you cant say Z is terrible, its quite good actually.
And same from an angle,
and from another angle the HTC is the one to look dark and dim and boring,
AnonD-86903, 18 Feb 2013nice phone but still prefer Z over it. both have same specs but Z looks to me more stylish.Z also offer better camera quality and audio features.
