1. phone is not at all comfortable to hold.
2. it has sharp edges
3. viewing angles are so bad (while playing subway surfers i have just moved the phone upwards just by 10 degrees, the colors just washed out)
4. this is not water proof, this is water resistance
5. this phone is finger print magnet
Very bad experience with this phone, never try to buy xperia z.
I think samsung galaxy s4 wont dissappoint like this
1 High contrast
2 Good viewing angle
3 sunlight legibility
4 Rich colours (adjustable)
Go for super amoled full hd.

I would agree with you before Jelly Bean, but ever since Jelly Bean, android is much smoother. I flashed Jelly Bean on the original Galaxy S and I was shock how smooth the Galaxy S is after I flashed Jelly Bean. I though the phone was slow and laggy because of it's hardware, but it was really Ginger Bread. Since this phone comes with Jelly Bean, I would not say android is a laggy os.
Are we actually comparing an S4 to an Experia product. And Experia Product is destined for failure and just crashing so to even try and say a Sony Android is comparable to even let's say an Optimus G is just funny in my books.
will that Samsung launch a Dual sim phone in the format of S 4 specification or above. Samsung grand Dual sim phone is not enough. Please tel me my friends.UD
This is totally terrific design and features..................for sure it'll be more popular than s3.............. :)
same crapy boring desing...even samsung all phones are of same desing...even the hardware is better but a phone which does not has good look how can ve say that it good from inside...from camera compare...galaxy s4 vs xperia z with pro capture from play store and see the difference in camera quality xperia z camera even better than compact 15mp professional camera ...try this and you would not be in a condition to buy... s4

LOL TO THAT!
Maybe you should widen your imagination so you can think why some people want a water resistant gadget.

Sony can also put a faster GPU or CPU in his devise if the wanted, but Sony k... moreCpu and gpu are like heart and lungs of phone system if these are not strong then how could u run u r system with high efficiency. Go to antutu and check s4 benchmark are 10% higher than Xperiaz. Android os is laggy os if u want to play high end hd games, heavy app use and heavy multitasking of ur phone then ur processor gpu must be strong
Even this phone haven't released to the market yet but proving so popular. Here what I did on Ebay: I written down sony xperia Z and search= result with 10 pages in 200 items view per page. I tried this with Samsung S4 and search= result with 11 pages in 200 items view per page! I did try that with Samsung s3 = result 315 pages with 200 item view per page!!!! who is the daddy?

Anonymous, 07 Apr 2013You don't even know by your self? how silly is that!!Xperia Z useless water resistant feature. How silly is that!
Believe me SG S3 is more powerful and better design than iPhone 5/Lumia 900 etc. Better grip feel better and light weight. And I feel SG S4 looks more better than SG S3

Tcool, 07 Apr 2013So why do you want to put it under the water?You don't even know by your self? how silly is that!!

And if the Optimus has better sunlight visibility than the S3 someone is lying or there is something seriously wrong with that S3. The Amoled screens are way better in the sun even at lower brightness.. Higher brightness is the only thing that give some LCD's an edge like the Iphone 5 is much more reflective, but just bright enough to make up for it.
Can someone Explain what the numbers in the Sunlight legibility test means , is it based on the higher the better or what ? and if so why the LG Optimus 4X which has a score of 1.691:1 in sunlight can be more visable in sunlight than the Galaxy S3 which have much higher score which is 3.419:1 .

Instead of that dangling wires from your phone as an antenna to your phone's radio, bluetooth headset with built-in radio gives you freedom to move especially when travelling at the same time you can answer the phone for incoming calls.
I hope that solves your radio problem.
Tcool, 07 Apr 2013If that is so, no need to buy a 3G phone.
Just buy a 2G phone with built-in radio.
Since a... moreI need a phone and a transistor radio, so why would I buy a phone that does not have that transistor FM-radio included? I do not want to have both a phone and a transitsor radio in my pants pocket, with two different headphones, one for the radio and another for my answering phonecalls!
I need 3G-connection and have unlimited 3G-data, but I travel a lot and there is not 3G-connection available everywhere and streaming radio over Internet drains the battery even when I have perfect 3G-connection!
