I have the Z (white) and love it. I've had SGS2, Note and Note2, got tired of the Sammy's use of plastic. After about 4 weeks use I can say the the Z is a very solid phone inside and out!
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2013xperia s scratches more easily than other htc phones. xperia s uses dragon tail glassXperia S Doesnt get scratched...M using it for over 2 months without shatter proof film and any protector...Not a single scratch on it btw i use it roughly. Dragontrail is way stronger then gorilla.
WHY COMPARE viewing angles? if you look at the front phone!! that point of comparison is of little value or meaning.. XPERIA Z in microscope is better, no question, as I see it in the image I,.
I borrowed my brother's Xperia Z for a day and noticed two things:
1) The LCD
There appears to be a film on the screen, which is probably the shatter-proof film Sony mentions in its product literature. I suspect that this film may play a role in affecting the LCD's native contrast and brightness.
Understandably, even if it turns out that the LCD without the film performs much better, the bottom line is that the *apparent* performance to the end user falls short because not everyone's going to peel that film off. Yet would it be worth an experiment, GSMArena? Peel off the film and measure its parameters?
Megapixels and theoretical performance aside, the Z's camera was amazing in low-light and dark (e.g. moonlit/night) shots. Perhaps GSMArena could compare this aspect as well? Might be a talent of the Exmor RS that's not been given due recognition.
It's good to see how afraid fanboys are of the success of the Z. I do however hope that the fanboys can stop some buyers from getting the Z, making it as common as iPhone 5 or Galaxy S3 would make it more boring.
for the truth ... most benchmarks are based on theory so i did rather watch video on utube's rather then reading article but for me my opinions is sony's need to change their main panel screen to OLED or their newest technology CLED i did like to own it :) i love my xperia S the visibility in sunlight is great no offense

Let's be honest!
Sony is copying LG's prada design
HTC is copying iphone4 design

It is a rather unfair comparison
For one the HTC one has a completely different user interface with the latest "sense"
This is an older model the butterfly
overall, xz wins against the butterfly. however, it is undeniable that the butterfly has the superior display compared to the xz's jdc panel. but then again, there are xzs that have the sharp panel—which happens to be at par with the butterfly's display.
you can look for those sharp displays on the xz on youtube. beautiful and no issues with viewing angles.
also ... the htc butterfly is more expensive than the xz. can't fault htc for the pricing since it uses the same tech as the xz. butterfly stocks/availability is also limited so how do you compare a device that you can actually buy to one that is not even available in your area yet?
People sony has the Best colour tint mixing technology in the world,no matter what till now a lot of great displays have come iphone,lg,samsung but the sony has an edge due to their tint which makes the colour tone real as possible,Till now no company can match it,sony has a history legacy which was created due to unmatched quality and products which were different from the rest,yes there have been issues with hardware, software tweaking,
model designs,But dont forget sony is not a company which can be written of by comments because people know what a sony is since they have experienced it
AK, 13 Mar 2013One last thing. Sony's water resistance is useless unless you want to sink your over hot ph in... morewhen it rains its good to have a water proof phone,its good in humid countries where there are dust winds,desert in not the only place where there is dust,and europe or usa doesnt make the whole world there are other countries which need these add ons,in our country it rains so waterproof phone is good for us,As far is jelousy is concerned all over the world there is no medicine
AK, 13 Mar 2013I don't think Sony is a winner here. Butterfly has better screen, more stylish design with red... moreHtc wins ? But sony xperia one sold out in france germany and is the best selling phone at the moment in nos,htc one have not even met targets?so htc wins yeah as if public are fools and you are the only intelligent one yeah ?
