I just bought this **** couple of days ago, and i don't recommend it to any body.
when sony present xperia z as a 5" full hd 1080p bravia engine 2 i would assume that this phone is all about display. guess what , it has the worst contrast and veiwing angles you will ever see in a 2013 phone let alone a flagship, colors are ridiculously whashed out .
when sony present xperia z as water proofed, i would assume that i can use this phone in water without the need to wait until the phone is dried (several hours to several days, it depends) to have the speaker volume back to its normal .
by the way xperia z might start non-stop vibrating and what ever you do it will not stop until battery is fully drained, as this happen to me yesterday.
so never buy this phone
shame on you sony
my last phone with u sony
uu, 01 Apr 2013yeah ur right,,
we amoled lovers dont care so much abt realistic colors!! thats why we choo... moreDifferent people have different needs regarding screens...I like my screen to produce natural looking colours and dnt care abt viewing angles coz m gonna look at my phone straight nt from an angle....who lools at their phones at an angle....
Similarly for some people design matters like me afterall we r payng a hefty sum of money why should we settle for a dull design. even wen a phone has awesome specs its design matters its like u put ferrari engine in a volvo and call that volvo best car ever...
I thought Xperia z could win atleast in camera department but surprisingly SGS4 wiped off the floor
-Xperia z is a piece of crap-.hats off samsung except your design I wonder what could have been the reception of S4 if it had a great design
Landcruiser, 01 Apr 2013I﻿ will never gonna buy samsung phones in my whole life.... I was really disappoint... moreGood story. I have both xperia ion and s3 .s3 is fine but ion is have black clipping issue .It is minor but I decided I never buy lcd screen mobile in feature.
Nephylim, 01 Apr 2013Wow, good info. Future users must read thisur ryt, not only users, but also buyers :)
i think sony xperia skin is d most elegant among all android skins, but its the least advanced software optimization coz it offers too much LAG!!!, my note2 and my brother's s3 are super fluid even they offer many features than my sister's xperia T.. even in xperia Z, read the complaints on the link :) have a nice reading :)
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2013Slightly more accurate colors alone do not make something better which was the only advantage ... moreyeah ur right,,
we amoled lovers dont care so much abt realistic colors!! thats why we choose amoled coz the saturation it has, the deep blacks! the vibrancy! the display that pops up like u r always watching ur favor8 hd movie!
the happiness and excitement that we feel when our eyes are at amoled, no one can change that :) and thats the reason why we refer amoled as distinct from the competition, and it's quality is above the rest :)
I﻿ will never gonna buy samsung phones in my whole life.... I was really disappointed with my galaxy s3 before. in my own experience, I never did something wrong in my phone, nor I dropped it.. suddenly the screen became wash out and the blacks color became pixelated, and then suddenly the black became greener tint.. I took it to samsung care center and they said its black crushing on mostly amoled screens. and they said its not part of the warranty so i need to pay for it... damn samsung..
Andrew Tan, 01 Apr 2013I am telling the truth. I never said S 4 AMOLED screen was bad, but I am pointing out it wa... moreSlightly more accurate colors alone do not make something better which was the only advantage screens had. The rest of the benefits went even to the S3 screen. What besides being normal color was better? Too which aside from everyone on the internet dissing it I have never actually heard someone complain about Amoled? And pentile? Not unless you are purposefully looking very hard or just looking at something with crappy detail. It wasn't perfect, but as usual held majority of the advantages. And S4 definitely tops the cake.
I don't understand how some people are picky about angle views, they prefer the S4 over Z because it has better angle views. This is just ridiculous. Think about it for a minute, it's not a TV, it's a phone, why would you want to look at from the side or whatever other position than the straight one? This is stupid. And I think it's an advantage that it has worst angle views, unless you want the people sitting next to you know what you are doing on your phone.
That full hd amoled is best screen of this year. For design and sound quality sony is champion.
Andrew Tan, 01 Apr 2013I had mention before, by changing to those screen setting show the screen abnormal, it just pl... moreScreen settings "Movie" is actually very good and show realistic colours, but the problem is that you get used to those unreal saturated and more colourful images... so you always feel disappointed when you change to "Movie", but if you use "Movie" for atleast a day and then change back to the normal oversaturated settings then you will see how much better real colours in "Movie" settings actually is on your S3, and Note II and S4!
pyradark, 01 Apr 2013LOL. S3 exp. sudden death
and sony fix that last week.. hahahahai know abt s3's sudden death but that occred after months of use, while sony xperia Z exprnced it after a day haha.. and thats my point, im not telling that s3 ddnt also have that issue before..
anyway, its not only abt sudden death of xperia Z, u can read in the site many clamors of XZ users
You can't compare an octa core device to a quad core device .. LOL
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2013samsung winner = user/buyer loser
xperia z loser = user/buyer winnersony XZ users winner?? hahaha
many complaints actually
[deleted post]It is the preinstalled screen protector, that is supposed to be, must be, installed to "shatter proof" the screen, that is the reason for the bad screen quality! The Z screen is , and is supposed to be, this bad so no newer or updated Z will ever have a better screen because they will/must all have that protective preinstalled screen protector to "shatter proof" the screen to protect it if accidentally dropped!
Glass is fragile, it needs the protection of "plastic"! The backpanel do not have this "shatter proof" so it needs a "plastic" case, just as iPhone 4S!
