I am not supporting Sony Nor Samsung, Please compare them face to face you will notice that the Sony's Panel is as great as the Samsung's, Samsung's panel is Amoled while Sony's IPS E, It is indeed true that it has bad viewing angles, but that doesn't mean that the Sony's panel is sub-par, The Camera is great on the Sony. Once again please compare with real life captures, I am sure the S4 will dominate but the Sony Also will as they have made an excellent design and excellent quality product, once the S4 is released I will compare them and get the Z.

In a Third World countries where the IT infrastructures there are not stable, smartphone is not applicable. It is like buying a PC without internet connection to use.
Transistor radio is what they need, not a smartphone.

The Sony is the worst LCD panel invented all Sony do is make it look worse so when you apple Bravia enhancement it brings it back to what is normal,its a con..Not that normal is any good...Whats happening is folk went for Sony Z in haste and as a protest against Samsung and all your trying to do is convince yourself its good..Folk have entered into a 24 month contract and are stuck with the Sony so they try to convince themselves and others it great,,its not and even the battery and camera are substandard.
Never ceases to amaze me the amount of apathy on here..Folk asking "What is battery life"? Well its stated in the spec and gsmarena have done endurance rating and none of have this in our hands yet to try it..The sheer lack of knowledge brings me to give some folk some brilliant advice,,,IF YOU DONT KNOW THESE BASIC THINGS OR ASK THE MOST STUPID QUESTIONS you should not be buying a smartphone.
Where are these folk coming from asking questions that were answered back in 2003?? Where have you been in this world to ask these questions..If you are that illiterate why is your country selling these devices..If you don't know the most basic bits about a mobile phone you should not be using one.PERIOD.
Zola, 20 Apr 2013Why does I9500 not have a RADIO??????Change the record its been discussed to death..You are either troll or just come on this forum..See top of this page its got a SEARCH FUNCTION try that and you will be met with 5 trillion answers,,change the rudy record.

Even s2 has a adjustable amoled screen. S4 screen is best out here, with Adobe rgb mode it will kill your xperia z crapp old tft lcd waste.
Octa core processor, latest full hd amoled with natural colours (lots of websites proved it , not only gsmarena) latest android version and lot more stylish features from Samsung. So I don't bothered about fm radio.

I'm talking about the panel from Sharp not that from JDI.
they keep saying its plastic no is not just like ordinary plastic, its polycarbonate Glock's use it as a frame of the gun and is a wonderfully durable polymer
Like many here, FM Radio is a Deal Breaker. I've had it with Tune In streaming that disrupts or break off transmissions. Worse, you'll never hear of news in Third World countries because the IT infrastructures there are not stable. FM transmission is more reliable, for those in the Know. I'll pass this model!
Nothing special from Samsung...common features and they have removed radio....my point is 3 out of 5.

the best screen according to gsmarena is s4 screen (super amoled)then htc one screen(super lcd)
lg and nokia use better screens than sony
