[deleted post]Sorry to say no to you bro. Even though my s4 color seems to pop out from the screen I do not like this fake color. Maybe some people do. But I do not. I always prefer natural color. No matter which display mood you Set s4 does not even close to real color like z, along with iPhone 5. To me, iPhone 5 displat shows closest to real color then others
I bought this beauty home on 6th of april around 10 pm, why do i remember the date cause Xperia Z is my first high-end smartphone and I can say that im a proud owner of Z. Im not a gadget expert but one can only prove capability of a phone by actually own it,hands on it experience and im not talking about just a few minutes hand on it and to summarize the phone after that.
What more to say to those who judge by its spec on paper rather than living with it.
I see people complaining about the wifi drops and its bad connectivity but for me , my wifi on Z is WORKING well all the time even only on one bar in its signal.
Viewing angle,lets just say im one of many Z lovers who claimed viewing angle isn't important and for more privacy purpose,well yeah,its not an excuse cause its not essential at all.
To be honest,i dont even know viewing angle can be a big issue until people started posting about it.
Maybe for those people who normally dont care about viewing agle,now you make a fuss of it now cause people would point it out if you have this phone, you just want to look good and a perfectionist.
You buy this phone cause you love it, and its for your own personal use so dont be turned off by what other ppl have to say about it.Self-experience is what matter most.
Xperia Z is better looking when its display is off?Bullshit. i Love looking at my Z with its on and off and i mean LOOKING RIGHT INTO HER EYES.If thats how you stare at your wife from side angles all the time instead of facing her,god knows what she would do to you lol.
I can say that so far its good for me,battery performance can be improved the longer time you use it with more charging cycles.Note that mostly it would drop a lil faster from 99% to 90% on normal use but after that it would maintain a slower drop rate of percentage but thats just from my Z.Not sure on others.
For those who concern of wearing off the flaps, just get a bluetooth headset and the dk26 charging dock. I have both now and i can kiss those flaps goodbye :P
On Stamina Mode performance,i finally understand how it works. At first it will show you a big difference of usage when you flip it on after that it will drop and the times when it will show no difference at all with the mode on or off, please dont worry about this.
It is definitely not broken,it just learn from your actual usage and slowly estimate and much more accurate time usage left after that. So it all depends on your real time usage with the phone and it learns from that.
My only minor complaint about this phone is, the speaker.Its not loud enough but listening in earphone made it up for it with so much clarity and bass quality audio :)
Im loving my XZ and yes its not perfect , its almost perfect. And hey, perfect is boring right? ;)
Recently bought one. Excellent phone. The best I have ever used. We are three friends who chose htc one, lumia 920 and me with xperia z. Battery life ia quite normal. For me lasts two days in normal usage. 2-3 hours of talking, almost all day chatting in viber amd sometimes surfing. Everything works perfect. I think I will be with Z for the next 2-3 years.
I admire everything in xz, actually I know when it comes to camera and sounds its perfect, but just I feel depress when I saw that the battery is notremovable, bec.I have or let's say "we have" experience from mini experia,me and my friends (5persons) bought it together but all of us experience a short battery life,that's why I promised myself that I will never buy phone that the battery is not removable.
I just want to ask for those who own this phone xz, how is the battery life?
Xperia ZL has "White Balance" feature but why Xperia Z doesn't have this? Maybe this is the reason why Xperia ZL has clearer/better screen than Xperia Z like GSMARENA's review that Xperia ZL has better screen than Xperia Z. Hopefully 4.2 Jelly Bean will make Xperia Z screen better as well as volume loudness.
I have always a fan of Motorola and currently own the Razr Maxx for superb battery life. Compare to Sony & Samsung, no doubt, Sony is way way better.
This phone is an amazing phone. But, wait for the Motorola's next big one.
AnonD-116724, 13 May 2013You love to read reviews right? Please read the link below~ Argue with that article...PERIOD... moreThanks man! The article confirms my experience of trying to use the S4 outdoors in bright sunshine. There really is nothing to debate. Excellent, now I just wish all these trolls will go away. I like most top end phones but hate people bashing other products simply because of their closed and ignorant minds!! Keep trolling the trolls.

I do object to an ignoramus suggesting, however, that I cannot have both the S4 and Xperia Z, especially when I do!!

Go google "Older LCD technology the clear winner in direct sunlight" from PA~
AMOLED no natural colors~
Can't read under sunlight...
AMOLED are useless~
Only win in "Viewing Angle"...
But who will view the phone from extreme angle?
Shame on Sammy~
Produced crappy display...==

advice, 12 May 2013first of all i don't beleive any person who says i own xperia z and samsung s4 or xperia z and... moreYou really are ignorant or blind to the truth. Why should I not own both phones? I have used every top end phone going, including iPhones 3G, 4, 4S and 5 which I got as an upgrade and sold to CES. Believe it or not, who cares as at any one time I have up to 4 phones, my expensive hobby if you like and I am not wedded to any one brand or manufacturer. I have given you my opinion based on real time use of both phones and you are entitled to your opinion. I like my S4 but LOVE my Xperia Z, period.
At the moment happy to run with these phones but will also buy the HTC One which from spending time with it is the only phone I would think is marginally better than anything else out there! Truth, don't care whether you believe me or not but it is a fact that I own both and my opinion is that whilst on paper the S4 appears to be the better phone in real life time use, and not some geek or journalist's opinion, my preference, overall, is for the Xperia Z so deal with it.
The issue is not up for debate as you won't change my opinion and the harder you try, the more ridiculous you would seem for trying. Now please gtfo!!
AnonD-129693, 12 May 2013well did u ever try to use an sgs3 in direct sunlight?I own one and it's almost impossible :)yes i did ,and other 50 million people did.
