Sony's advertisements with their Xperia products splashing into water is misleading people to believe they can use them long term under water. Salt water will degrade those exposed power receptors on the side faster. I'm surprised they didn't provide a flap seal for it.

If Z1 is so 'good', then you're in the wrong forum. You should be in Sony Z1 forum telling all potential Sony customers how 'good' it is. Waste your time there, not here.
Here Note 3 is the best and no one is forcing you to buy it. No FM Radio? By all means, get one with it.
I think you're envious of Note 3 and dissatisfied with Z1, that's why you're finding fault with the best - Note 3.
Btw, is your work place surrounded by water? Cos the water resistant feature is so important to you. If so, brag about it in Z1's forum. You're more needed there, not here.
Tianchi, 15 Dec 2013How about water&dust proof of z1?? Your reply is not practical and your proof depends on... moreYou keep saying about water & dust proof for Z1. WE DON'T CARE because Note 3 is king. Now go away with ur stupid phone and make an artificial reef with him.
People saying that the z1 is waterproof and stuff. AM going to ask you one thing? Can it withstand sea water ? NO. Who gives a damn about taking pictures in the rain or in a swimming pool. If you cant use it in saltwater enviroment then its pointless. What`s the point of taking a flat rectangle surface underwater. The beauty is found under the sea and from what ive read salwater is a big NO NO for the so called "water resistant" devices.
kofi knight, 15 Dec 2013Thanks alot manYou're welcome anytime...
Tianchi, 15 Dec 2013How about water&dust proof of z1??
Your reply is not practical and your proof depends on... moreListen kid, the Z1 is only a water resistant device. Waterproof means it can stay in water indefinitely for hours or days. The Z1 isn't even recommended to be abused to take pictures underwater. It's rating isn't the highest for "waterproof" equipment.
The number of lesser features of the Z1 over the tremendous amount of Note 3 features are the main reasons why people like me would send our money on the Note 3. Not something that is only water resistant. No point in getting something that has less of what you need. Z1 has less battery stamina, no Wacom pen digitizer, small screen, large bezels, not AMOLED screen, less camera features, non-replaceable battery, weak speakers, and screen discolors at angles.
Yeah, I only agree it's good against the rain.

Your reply is not practical and your proof depends on websites
I recommanded that you buy Z1, and compare with your note3 :colour,speed,camera,video,gaming,number of real useful apps(not includes useless ones), durability,design, and other performances!
Don't believe websites!
And be honest!!!

"plastic product with high price"
Obviously you don't know that the Note 3 has the most features in software and hardware capabilities than even to your precious Z1. Z1 came last in the aspects test link I mentioned before overall.
"Chipset are variable so it is confused for customer"
More choices to anyone's preference and price affordability. You pay what you get.
"No FM radio"
Get a $40+ bluetooth headset that has an FM receiver. Can't complain since I personally listen to internet radio like 8Track or Tune-In. More and better choices for music than stuck with the crappy local stations. It eliminates the need of plugging in the stock earpiece to act as the FM antenna.
"Oversaturated colour(several years later, it occurs serious eyes problem"
What scientific research did you get that from? In the test GSM conducted, the Note 3 actually had the lowest screen brightness against the Z1. It's not like you are looking directly at a small Sun when you look at the screen.
"It is so clumsy in real life using!"
If we follow your logic, then all 5" and above screen sized phones including your beloved Z1 is clumsy. The Note 3 is only 7mm taller and 5mm widder, but slightly thinner than the Z1. Note 3 is even slightly lighter than the Z1.
"No quality control, so unpleasant problems occur in worldwide"
What statistics are you referring to? Samsung has shipped past 10 million of the Note 3. What defects are you talking about?
"And removable battery is for low quality phones"
Apple and Steve Jobs started the non-removable battery trend because they didn't want anyone messing about with their product hardware. There's nothing low quality about the Note 3 with a removable and replaceable battery system that is provides easy power-ups for extended usage.
"High_end smartphones such as iphone,z1,HTC one is no problem to take out battery and you use power bank for long travelling OK!"
And be slaves to carrying around those big ugly power banks wired to your device half the time? An extra flat battery can be swapped into the Note 3 in less than a minute. Transferring power from the power bank to your device takes hours. Spent batteries can be charged at home.
If you want to troll over how bad the Note 3 is, be better at backing up your views. Become the best troller there is and not half-baked about it.
