AnonD-134750, 14 Apr 2013yes i agree with you........sony xperia z is a best choice as of now.may be for u,but in the world there are millions of "smart people" who want to be able to hear their phones when ringing,and as u know the xperia z has a very poor audio output .
gsmarena: "We ran our traditional loudspeaker test on the Sony Xperia Z, and the results were awful. Scoring a Below Average result even with xLOUD turned on, the Xperia Z is a definite disappointment in terms of speakerphone loudness."
also in the world there are millions of "smart people" who want to take the best camera shots by their phones so they don't need to take their digital cameras where ever they go,but as u might also know the xperia z camera is average for what supposed to be 2013 flagship by sony.
gsmarena:"The resolved detail is hardly spectacular and the noise levels are only average, but the dynamic range is good and contrast is excellent. The results are pretty good overall, although we wouldn't say it has a significant advantage over the best 8MP shooters from last year. Matching their performance is still a pretty good achievemen,though.
and here part of what gsmarena said about the washed out xperia screen:The difference in viewing angles is particularly striking as the mediocre viewing angles of the Sony flagship look shocking next to the paper-like screen of the Galaxy S4.
my advice for people who want a high end phone but they don't like samsung,htc one in the best choice ,avoid sony unless you only use sony phones,or u r spending most of your day swimming.
AnonD-252, 14 Apr 2013It is 2013, so every phone should have a FM-radio, just as they all have a camera with a flash...!It seems the sgs4 has an FM radio .. Gsm arena should investigate this and report as appropraite .samsumg site for the s4 states that it has a radio..
Anonymous, 14 Apr 2013Samsung should work for best Windows phone (dual sim). Laptop's days gone. Complete package of... moreWindows 8 is no longer "Windows", Windows 7 was the last real "Windows"!
Linux Mint 14 with the Cinnamon desktop, is far better than Windows 8, and Microsoft Office is a total waste of money because there are many free alternatives that together easily can do a lot more than the overexpensive Microsoft Office, and even on Android the Office alternatives are far better than the one from Microsoft on WP 8 phones from Nokia...!

People will never differentiate whether you have an S3 or S4 or Note 2 or galaxy Grand or S3 mini !!!!
That phone was supposed to be unique in design and there was supposed to be a change in the cheap material that gets scratches even with extra care!
I admit iPhone 5 has nothing new .. But you can go for Sony Xperia Z .. What a phone:)
Guys, I am confused between s4,note 2,HTC one.... Pls help..... I am already using a 5' screen phone( indian brand micromax) and feeling handy enough and fits well in pocket..... I like s4 ffeatures a lot but makes me incline towards note 2 due to s-pen. Also impressed by the HTC one live home screen.... Design does not matter much coz even if i buy htc one i m gonna use a protection cover..... Pls help.... Thanks in advance.... #peace
Samsung should work for best Windows phone (dual sim). Laptop's days gone. Complete package of MS Office need to be installed in smartphones. Otherwise Nokia will beat SAM again...
Sorry I am not a troll.
So far I have been pleased but when I realized what a policy have Samsung and warranty does not cover anything ( a little moisture in the air can damage charging adapter) , I am very disappointed. I just want to warn others.
I still have Note 2 and its great phone. But I am afraid to use them , because every day moisture can damage them, and bye very expensive phone.
I will try to clean oxidised parts with myself. Maybe S3 will work again for little costs.
mkaravel, 14 Apr 2013What annoyed me most with the S series phones was the vibrance of the screen. OK, colours were... morei agree with you but i guess xperia Z's screen is better than the iphone 5 when it comes to reality display.
s4 say yes for 4 things qc 1.6, dual camera work at a time, sens applications, hd display larger than s3
