But even then the reflective ratio is less. This is a tft. Its a bit more reflective. And the S3s screen was one of the best and amazing in sunlight. The S4 is even better and in auto matic brightness goes something like 20% brighter than manual. So...no

faisal, 01 May 2013At all I call Xperia z a perfect smartphone and all Samsung phones as plastic phones That's right!!!
sometimes my xperia z getsso hot my hands burn and ears burn, but what i underestimated the most is the soundquality of the internal speaker as well as the external speaker. No detail at all when playing music, the sound quality is so poor even with an equalizer you can't get it to sound right, tried with different headphones and different mp3 appz. My old HTC wildfire sounds 1000 times better with no equalizing at all. the soundquality of the Sony Xperia Z is so bad it hurts my ears, distortion all over, the music just don't sound right.

How can you even say that the 2 phones are evenly placed ? Out of the 14 tests that Gsmarena performed, Galaxy S4 wins 11 of them, while 2 of them are a tie.The only category where the Z wins is the design. For me, its the S4.

I have read this article with interest and several others too, every author has given samsung galaxy s4 maximum numbers even though Xperia z has undoubtadly nicer look with water proof system, features are more or less the same. But battery life, breakable glass, speed and one is helpless in case z is hanged, are some of the question marks on z. Suleman.firstname.lastname@example.org
Designing the phone's internal hardware seems like going to shop in the town's market - put this cpu in the basket, add that graphics chip, get the chipset from this company...
Phone manufacturers don't design and build these parts, except Apple perhaps. So I'm not sure I understand why Sony didn't pick the best available parts for its flagship model, as Samsung did. Shame, cause I don't like the S3 / S4's plastic design and feeling, but I won't pick a phone that's so obviously inferior like the Xperia Z.
Xperia z is slow in opening applications like contacts or messaging specially when searching. Samsung is faster
i just want xperia Z ... i love Sony .. east or west .. sony is the best .. sony rocks ..
and syamsingh(samsung) phones are cheap and cheater and copy cat .
. i love my money actually .. and sony is giving best value ..
Being outdoors alot I will choose the Z over the S4, both are great phones but the IP 57 certification is more important than the S4 performance over the Z. And I dont think there will be such an huge difference in performance anyway, the screen on the Z looks just fine and the viewing angles dont matter. If the S4 screen is anything like the S3 it is of little use outdoors.
