Yes, S4 has a lot of features and powerful specs but Xperia Z has just enough specs and features needed for everyday use. And it's android, you can get almost every feature from s4. Samsung just want to make S4 looks a lot different from s3 in their ad so they made those features pre-installed.
Both have great specs but i pick S4 because of sd slot and removable battery meaning you can insert custom battery in s4. ( zerolemon 7000 mah custom battery in s3 )
well i am having both of them in my pocket, life is awesome.
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2013yah samsung is great.. but still you cant deny the results of video comparison.. What video comparison??
Here in gs4 vs XZ??
Xz lost almost all categories
Anonymous, 17 Apr 2013There are a lot of them just like that everywhere. They go around mainly bad mouthing Samsung ... moreI really dont know why they r so obsessd w/ sony while in fact samsung is d greatest company that made android big., samsung pushed hardware & software limits to d extent why wer now facing a huge impact of technology in android mobile..
Check this video comparison..
white on sg4 is yellowish lol..
TheHorseMeatUluv2Eat, 31 Mar 2013S4 has better screen, better features, better battery, better ergonomics, faster updates.......better screen? a little kernel can give you the colors TRULY meant to be on XZ, viewing angles? if you need looking at your phone from extreme angles then its a problem in your eyes
better features??? OH COME ON any feature on s4 that begins with the word "smart" is a useless feature unless youre too lazy to touch the screen
better battery????? XZ Stamina mode learns from your usage habits and gives you better battery life day by day, even GSMarena admitted that it was turned OFF when they tested the XZ battery life
better ergonomics??? rubberized sides and flat surfaces actually HELP get a better grip (source: AndroidAuthority)
faster updates????????????????? SERIOUSLY?????
Samsung is WORLD CHAMPION for (not) bringing in software updates, simple example: Sammy's previous flagship S1 was 2.1 eclair and the best thing they did TILL TODAY is 2.2 froyo. . . . . ON THE OTHER HAND even the oldest and cheapest SonyEricsson Xperias got Gingerbread, done with it, and now enjoy Ice Cream Sandwich
Bottom Line: Galaxy s4 sucks: another Nouveau-riche device
Xperia Z rocks: and i cant wait to get one
AND YOU SAMMY FANBOY . . . Go home u r drunk ;P
I would say that both phones are good. And in my opinion Sony has the better future.They ve made good jump with Z and it is real something new in the market of smartphones. S4 yes is better Android and maybe some other features but in general it is the same product as S3.So im for Sony Z.

Since you know so much please explain to us how Samsung is so cheap and how everything is so much better. Only logical and factual responses please
uu, 17 Apr 2013Duhh.. im not badmouthing other phones.. getting so many excuses!
Im basing my opinions from ... moreThere are a lot of them just like that everywhere. They go around mainly bad mouthing Samsung saying polycarbonate is cheap, it's ugly "when in reality from front it looks better", That Amoled is the worst, is just quantity, cheap this, toy that, plastic this, blah blah blah.
Then they turn around and Say how amazing and superior Sony is in every way and claim that everyone is trolling Sony and that Sony fans are not the ones doing this. Then every time one of them sees a comment like that they make one too without looking back to see it's invalid and it makes a nasty chain of bashing, trolling, lying, and scapegoating.
And to make it worse if you say something negative to any aspect of Sony or praise to Samsung or feature of any other mobile than Sony you are immediately a Samsung troll plastic you lover. Even if you like Sony or are talking about another company or feature. They are getting close to surpassing isheep.
Ones things for certain they seem to be extremely and excessively jealous of Samsung and have to use every second to prove to everyone and themselves that Sony is just so superior in every aspect
Great comparison makes it hard for someone to actualy make a choice.would probably go for the S4 even though I love sony!

Im basing my opinions from the reviews and talk.sonymobile.com
Dude ur one of the samsung haters who are badmouthing galaxies in so many ways..
Well i know abt that artcle be4 u, and samsung taiwan is disgusting..but dat wudnt make me think that galaxies arent d best ryt now..
Sony lolz ...dnt compare samsung s4 to sony z ....samsung is far far batter then sony z ,sony no where near ,sony is child in smart phone and samsung father of samartphone ,s4 then come sony will gone
The fact remains that there are many more quality phones other than Samsung, yet, online, it seems that people are overwhelmingly in favour of Samsung, and everyone hates other Android phones, yet in reality this is not the case. Now we know it has all been due to Samsung's sleazy and dirty tricks. So this is where all the money from Samsung's mega-marketing budget went to. Pathetic.

After all, what I have been saying all this while is now coming out. Samsung has just been found guilty of astro turfing, using anonymous online trolling bad mouthing other phones, basically doing EXACTLY what you are doing lol:
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2013Check the SGS3 user votes to disprove your own thoughts. SGS3 votes were high and remain high.... moreDuhh s4 and s3 have d same rating here in the users review.. my point is dont believe in those users review so much because samsung has a lot of haters and that myt b d reason of low rating.. i also vividly stated that I WILL BELIEVE MORE ON gsnmarena's review WHICH SAID THAT XPERIA Z IS BELOW THELEVEL OF GS4
And i ddnt mention in rwply to you abt material. For me polycarbonate is d best material to use coz aluminum and glass have more disadvantages than polycarbonate, sammy just made a mistake on implementing it.. glossy is not beautiful for phone

SGS3 votes were high and remain high. The fact is, even current Samsung owners are underwhelmed by the SGS4 which is just a slightly improved SGS3 lol.
By the way, even Samsung have admitted that their material is no good and will look to improve to compete against iPhone and HTC One. If Samsung themselves admit it, can you fanboys accept it?
