[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!
the 1st thing that I see of an smartphone before buy it, is the screen.
S4 > Htc one > XperiaZ
samsung winner = user/buyer loser
xperia z loser = user/buyer winner
sony is poineer of oled in 2008 and after 3 year samsung has copied that technology and made the so_called amoled,and simply no innovation.imagine sony,s potential they make the simple tft secreen nearly equal to oled level by their revolutionry bravia engine and also having more sharpness as compare to oled,compare and see yourself,sony can make best secreen,s4 is so much bad loocking phone,but you will see purple xz is just amazing,i love so much that,samsung fan are cheaper fan with no brain no style no exciting,simply they are followers

Galaxy s4- ugly nerd girl wiyh lots of brains.
I wil... moreA.bit faster processor doesn't prove it's better.
So, your comparing is just silly!!!!
I am not sure why some people are getting hung up on looks.... i'm thinking most of these comments are 15-25 year olds.
The screen is what makes a phone and the whole smartphone experience, when you are using a phone its the screen you notice not the rest of the phone.
As the review says:
- SGS4 "Screen has superior color reproduction, contrast and viewing angles"
- "the Xperia Z screen still falls short of the Galaxy S4 display in just about every aspect of its performance"
- SGS4 "easily bests the Xperia Z in terms of sunlight legibility and contrast"
- "viewing angles is particularly striking as the mediocre viewing angles of the Sony flagship look shocking next to the paper-like screen of the Galaxy S4"

I will go for the prettier one rest of u can make ur choice.....wait I think I know everyone's choice....
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2013Yeah...there is no need for more powerful and efficient chips. We only need them to run every ... moresorry but i dont brag a sony phone even if it has the S800 chipset. Im tired of those quadcore thing and its still leave you lagging anywhere.
S4 is great, but imagine those great features will be useless to Millions of people whose not nerd.
Xperia Z may look bad in alot of parts but to millions who dont care its internal, its durability is a standout.

It was the worst screen ever in flagship phone.
So funny .. the phone pictures.
Phones larger then hands LOL, i think in a few years time.. people will rofl from such massive slabs of phone.
The only way for Sony to win this is to provide better Android updates, better customer service , and reduce the phone's price for more affordability.
Stop arguing in behalf of these companies. No ones is getting paid for the arguments and the bashing. What everyone needs to do is warn people of the issues they find on the phone or advise everyone of the cool features of the phones (for those who actually own the phones).
There's no ultimate phone (yet), it all boils down to preference. Personally, I've downgraded to a dumbphone as I got fed up with these companies not putting everything into one phone. What I was after are the battery life, the out of the box features (without the need for updates, etc), and the weight (less than 90 grams). I have a separate camera (mirrorless) for shooting and a tablet (for surfing mobile).
Just so everyone knows, I've used symbian, winmo, IOS, and finally android (loved it). But due to the unending wars and thinking back at what I really need from a phone, I downgraded.
It really ticks me off when people complain about features they NEVER/HARDLY use but want it there to brag.

And he disable the bravia engine in order to see "natural" colors.
My point is, there are settings for individuals to use. You may find it lame, but others will like to have it on / off. Most importantly, S4 provides lots of different options to cater to different user tastes.
Nevertheless, if you really cannot stand AMOLED, just get a SLCD 3 screen offers by HTC One. Simple as that.
visit this website and ull see so many complaints abt XPERIA Z!!! thinking that it is just one site, u can see other people comlaining through other forums,, that explains that XPERIA Z is totally crap
wer can u find a flagship smartphone that after a day or days of use not even a month ull have a sudden death and the system has so many issues!!
polycarbonate is better than other materials dude.. even ur aluminum htc one is badly built check the drop test w/ ip5.. even at 2ft height of drop the speaker cover was already out of the way, and the dents and scratches make the phone look awful... where can u find a day/days old flagship smartphone that already have build issues hanging around web sites now.. go research for different htc One that have material or build issues...
