hamad, 01 Jun 2013nice joke... get s4 baby n see the truth Tested the S4 in store for half an hour.The features exists but lol, they are not working as intended.All the fuss about eyescrolling and other features were exagerated.Nothing works as you would expect and just exists there as a function you won't use.
That, plus the same shitty look, made me not having the courage to take the phone out of my pocket and present it as it would be something special.
However, when I do take out the XPZ from my pocket, it immediately atract attention, design wise.As for the tech, S4, HTC one adn XPZ works pretty much the same, except on paper tests HTC and S4 performs better in a way you will never visibly notice to any application because there are no apps that can use all the processor power.
So, my dear friends, if you wanna show off, get the XPZ, if you want something different, get HTC one or XPZ, if you want the same design as in 2010 but with better paper results and why not admit it, more vivid colours due to the SAMOLED screen, get the S 4.
why are you so eager for the 4.2.2 think your phone will turn into a transformer robot with it?
wait for them to optimise it and to actually improve the phone rather than start yelling that it made your phone worse.
Seen the 4.2.2 and not impressed by it in the way it is not a radical improvment
I am very confused between Iphone4 and Xperia Z... So which one is better that I should buy??
Please helpppp... :S
Fistly, I wanna say to all samsung fans that they are on the wrong page here but if they are here, it means they are either trolling or disatisfied with their samsung product and came to have a pick in the neighbouring areas.
Had Samsung 1, 2 and 3.Since I'm a little clumsy, I always drop them on the floor.My Sg 2 had its screen broke after droping it from around 1 m and the Samsung galaxy S 3 had its screen crack after falling from the amazing distance of about 25 cm.
This being said, I bought a XPZ after careful considerations between HTC one and XPZ.From the momment I put my hands on the Xperia Z, i simply fell in love with this device.Besides the fast scolling and almost instant internet loading pages (which all end phones prolly has it), everything works smooth, never had any heating problems and I did tested it quite a lot.been using it for over one month and 5 days ago made a software upgrade through sony update ceneter and was surprise to see that the battery lasts with over 30% more.Dropped the phone twice on the floor by mistake and has no scratch so for me, a durable phone despite some featurs it lacks compared to S4 that I will prolly never use, I would never trade this phone for nothing yet.Tested the eye scrolling feature on S 4 yesterday and lol, it is buggy and only works for scrolling down and not always working, have to keep ur eyes close to it.
The colours from S 4 are more vivid than my xperia Z but too colourfull if u ask me, like cartoonish, I still prefer my realistic colours and I'm being objective here.
For those hesitating, I encourage you not to listen to all the bull$hit you read here but rather go and test the phone in stores and see the difference yourself.The elegant design of XPZ, like an Iphone quality phone but looking manly and not gay (not that I have anything against gay peops) with high end features and tech, surely had me on its side.
If I were to go.
Stop following the crowd and pick whatever fits you best after testing it yurself.If u didnt tested it and just speaking from whatever info you read, I must warn you that you are about to make a purchase based on other people's oppinion rather than yours.
Cheers guys and in the end I wanna be mean and Quote HTC management towards any samsung fan stumbling upon Sony pages: "Plastic is fantastic" lulz

Sapna Mulani, 31 May 2013Buddy I am your fan after this comment.. I am basically a very frequent visitor of gsmarena..... morePlease be cautious of this basher of Samsung. Samsung has copied many new ideas, as has every other phone company. This is business and the same applies to TV, cars and in fact everything. Companies run to make a profit and every company copies others ideas.
Sony has never had any new ideas for mobile phones ever and has simply just copied everything. Thats one reason why Sony has had financial losses for over 3 years and is still in the Red zone.
Samsung was first with 8 and 12 meg camera smartphones. First with HD recording and first with Amoled screens.
Samsung Electronics is the world's largest information technology company. Builder and Supplier.
In fact about 32% of Sony and iphones are made with Samsung parts.
Samsung Heavy Industries is the world's second-largest shipbuilder.
Samsung Engineering is the world's 15th largest construction company.
Samsung Life Insurance is the world's 14th-largest life insurance company.
Samsung Everland (operator of Everland Resort, the oldest theme park in South Korea)…Samsung Techwin (an aerospace, surveillance and defence company) and Cheil Worldwide (the world's 16th-largest advertising agency.
In 2013, Samsung begun construction on building the world's largest mobile phone factory in the Thai Nguyen province of Vietnam.
Samsung became the largest producer of memory chips in the world, and is the world's second-largest chipmaker after Intel.
Samsung is the sole supplier of a combustor module for the Rolls-Royce Trent 900 used by the Airbus A380, the world's largest passenger airliner
ken, 31 May 2013Yes, it's true regarding to the battery issues when I bought 3 months ago, my first used. It's... more is it good for heavy users And wich is the best sony smart phone and is the xperia z good for party and is it fast breaker
Hi house! Pls I want to reiterate here that they are some dudes paid by competitors to kill d integrity of other brand!
I almost got discouraged about buying my XZ;after reading lots of rubbish I went ahead to buy my XZ. It work pretty fine. Every phone heats up(my BB torch is a house warmer), and if urs is hot(its water resistant,cool it off)note u can't cool off ur s4 or htc 1!
Its fantastic I cud repeat purchase@$633.
Yea d battery drains but it gets better day by day compare to 1st day usage.
Its a bomb!
When a company says shatter proof, don't mean it can't crack, it wud! Don't drive ur car over it to impress people,its such dat in even of a slip the chances of damage is minimal. Handle wit care! Even humans are drown-resistance but if u can't swim be careful in pool.
The phone is water resistance but u ve got to be careful to block d ports and u r periodically warned wit d pop ups.
jzac, 27 May 2013Dear Mr Droid Ghost,
No one here didn't force you to don't buy Samsung. This conversation w... moreBuddy I am your fan after this comment.. I am basically a very frequent visitor of gsmarena.. I dont own any high end phone.. Cant afford.. Just own a canvas hd which is great for me.. Your post has helped me a lot. At canvas hd forum as well.. Samsung fans have pissed us like hell.. Your post is the one of the best thing I have come across in my life. I have noticed throughout gsmarena that on every other famous phone.. Samsung fans have poked their nose.. I have personally gone through it.. HTC sony Nokia LG micromax (new almost famous brand). I really don't know what is pricking them and where..
Hope their sense r.i.p..
But buddy.. Awesome slap on their face.. Really.. Thanks man..
AshenXE, 31 May 2013please help me, i am confused between sony xperia z and htc one, i want to know the real truth... moreThe Xperia Z is poor for one reason, the ad on their website says "The durable tempered glass on front and back is a lot stronger than conventional glass.

Had iPhone before this piece of rubbish and never cracked a screen once!!!
