Both manufacturers did their best in producing the most beautiful handsets ever, the comparison is fair, detailed and very factual to the core, consumers should go for what they think is right for them, depending on what they want on the handset
AnonD-77852, 17 Apr 2013Interestingly HCT One has better camera then Xperia Z and more and faster integrated storage. ... moreYou will care if you are having bad connectivity in the areas you are in.... Nothing beats the feeling of having the files right there when you need it instead of waiting for connections to the clouds.
I went with HTC One because:
Looks even more premium then Sony
Louder and better speaker
Premium/Polished looking software
Cleaner design due to uni-body.
I had almost paid $800 for the Z when it was available at a shop in my city but i just checked the price again and its $675 now, not even a month in between. But i really did liked some of the Z's features ex: Waterproof, 13mb camera, glass build, SD Card.
I have noticed that aluminium backed devices seem to have worse WiFi signal strength than similarly specified devices of the same size, as if the aluminium interferes with the signal.
I am wondering if the HTC one has the same poor WiFi as an iPhone 5? If it does then for me it would be a non starter. It does appear that people have stopped bothering to test signal strength which can still make or break a device in my view.
Does anyone have any WiFi range comparisons?

The sony wins!
Played with HTC one and compared with my Xperia ZL. One has stunning style and build quality. I didn't find much difference on screen quality if you are looking direct at screen which is what I do.
I personally will go with ZL because of bigger screen and smaller size. One drawbacks are too much frame around screen. I don't care about speakers. Plus the huge HTC logo in the middle of soft keys ruined it for me. Why only two soft keys? With ZLs on screen buttons you can even get fourth key in apps and that makes it more practical for use.
I wish HTC trimmed the bezel and went with on screen soft keys. It would have been the king of all phones.
Chiya, 12 Apr 2013Hey friends from my view xz is a best phone w.r.t htc 1 coz... XZ screen uses bravia display ... moreNo Sony phone till now has awesome display.XZ display can't match HTC, Samsung and LG displays.

nads, 08 Apr 2013Sony makes good handsets and their display quality is generally good, i still done believe how... moreWell said. A substd display for a top notch phone is just unacceptable. If no one bothers about display then this can be quietly ignored but it's not so in today's world of in-depth tests and comparisons.
Chiya, 12 Apr 2013Hey friends from my view xz is a best phone w.r.t htc 1 coz... XZ screen uses bravia display ... moreActually i saw the htc one earlier and its really a premium /phone design. I feel the solidness in my hand...... but unfortunately i still wanna get the xperia z.
One can easily over shade z..
Camera record and night shot
There is no chance for z that prove itself .
I don't know why people complaining about ads, we all hav smartphones already, pc , internet, why don'tu use ur own mind other than watching or waiting for ads.
Xperia z gets overheated within 5-6 minutes of operation , don't lie with yourself and don't try to cheat others. It's truth.
Screen n sound r the worst story. Compare it with others especiallywith HTC ,XZ is nowhere nearby.
Yes but 13 mp still shots r better thn HTC one in good lightening conditions only.
Rest every feature is standing nowhere near HTC one.
