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... moreI don't own all the phone you mention, I'm using an iPhone 4 but I want my next phone to be Xperia Z with omni directional design, front and back glass, Premium look and beautiful to look at. Stunning and Gorgeous
Does the xperia z support usb otg?If so, is the usb otg adapter included in the box or do you have to buy it seperately?
AnonD-65372, 12 May 2013Those are opinions of very often biased journalists who conclude with a pre-determined outcome... morefirst of all i don't beleive any person who says i own xperia z and samsung s4 or xperia z and htc one in the same time,the prove that u didn't own the galaxy s4 is that u don't know about the screen sitting of the new super amoled screen,if u want standard LCD colors like the iphone 5 screen or htc one, u choose movie mode in gs4 screen sitting,if u want the vivid LED colors (saturated)u choose the standard mode.
as i know the iphone 5 screen has the best color accuracy.
i am living in a sunny country i've used the s4 under direct sun light and could easily use the phone as it is the case with every amoled screen i used before.
to increase the brightness of the s4 screen to 34% more than the s3 put it on auto brightness.
i like the built quality of xperia z but i hate the obligatory scratchable screen protector.
i am visiting this website since more than 5 years,and i like to post where ever i like,especially when i find people giving wrong information.
I bought Xperia Z yesterday and I'm totally in love with it. I don't understand why people are saying these strange things about this phone. The only thing that was true about Xperia Z is it being a finger print magnet. Screen quality is very good and so is the battery life. I completely recommend you to buy this amazing phone. Sony is the best.
advice, 11 May 2013gsmarena (this website)said that htc one and galaxy s4 are both better than the xperia z,so if... moreThose are opinions of very often biased journalists who conclude with a pre-determined outcome. I happen to own both the S4 and the Xperia Z and in real time use, you would think the XZ is superior regardless of the specs on paper. The main advantage of the S4 is the screen, if over saturated colours are for you but the only screen better than the XZ's in terms of colour reproduction is the HTC One's discounting viewing angles which is not an issue for most. By the way, I tried using the S4 in direct sunlight and I can assure it is almost impossible. In conclusion, each person is looking for something different and what is the best handset is what is perfect for them! Not what you think is the best or what I think but what they think is the best for them so stop with your pontificating about the S4. The Xperia Z is a superb phone and in terms of build quality and feeling of solidity, you will be hard pushed to find a better built phone which is why most people love it!
By the way, most on here would be Sony fans so I think you are wasting time peddling your opinions. Recommend you land on Samsung blog and sing the praises of the S4 all you want. Me, I keep an open mind and buy whatever catches my fancy, although reluctant buyer of the S4, that is due to Samsung's appalling customer care!
ada, 12 May 2013guys don'nt buy this phone it does'nt have floating touch like S4 and TFT screen side view is ... moreOh yeah, so presumably you will buy the Xperia Sola then because it has floating touch? It actually had it 1 year before the S4 so suggest you rush out and buy it!
AnonD-112991, 11 May 2013it is coming but the name is a bit different the new samurai is code named honami which i ho... morenice dude ! yeah ive seen online Sony honami ... i hope that , specs are allmost the same with Sony z or GO , IP67.. water & dust resist . brilliant !
AnonD-116724, 11 May 2013Yeah~ They don't know that AMOLED are hurting their eyes with those over-saturated colors and... moreIf you don't used amoled display , then don't tell bad comments about that. Amoled display doesn't hurt our eyes, and oled technology is really suitable for mobile screens. I agree that xperia z display is fantastic with mobile bravia engine 2.
ken, 12 May 2013who cares about floating touch. tft screen side view not clear. at least only me can see and r... more I check the songy xperia z i amzing handst or his feature is awosome or handset quilty on of the best , camera quality give best feels of image

ada, 12 May 2013guys don'nt buy this phone it does'nt have floating touch like S4 and TFT screen side view is ... morewho cares about floating touch. tft screen side view not clear. at least only me can see and read my phone. not for public. yes, flash light is low compare to xperia t light. but advantage is the elegant designed of xperia z and its water and dust resistance. sometimes i put the phone inside the jacket and when it rained. i dont bother it get wet. that's are the advantages of xperia z. regarding heat up, every smartphone generate heat. i dont know what phone and brand dont heat up. even old cellphone without cpu do heat up.
ada, 12 May 2013guys don'nt buy this phone it does'nt have floating touch like S4 and TFT screen side view is ... moreBla bla bla...is floating touch what u care about?? Sony did that 1st with there xperia go ( mid range phone) it's such a useless feature.. Samsung is just copying from other brands...
Z display is amazing ( at least u got natural crisp colors and not cartoonish colors)... Z camera is better at nigh... Design and build quality is way better in z... Besides the water resistance feature ( killer feature)
Enjoy ur plastic toy Samsung boy...
this xperia z is the most beautifull and the most efficien pones i have ever seen i think they should be placed on the top because they r more beautiful and very good then iphone
guys don'nt buy this phone it does'nt have floating touch like S4 and TFT screen side view is not clear and camera is good at day time but at night its very bad because of its small flashlight
xperience.. =) , 11 May 2013SONy please bring back the xenon flash/cyber-shot on your phones ..... maybe your next name Xp... moreit is coming but the name is a bit different
the new samurai is code named honami which i hope it will show up soon ;)
JustAnotherConsumer, 11 May 2013I think gsmarena should do something about these "User opinion" section. Reading all... moreman i just found a human being who can use the reason finally there is still hope thank u my GOD i will tell u few things about the xperia z and u can go to another phones pages and see what suites u better am i wrong in what i just said?
the phone is sexy really the most beautiful phone i ever used the glass is durable though i removed the pre installed shatter proof film from both sides and installed a thinner ones which is more like prints resistance, the phone heat up to a warm level and its totally acceptable around 30C degrees never had an issues with any lags or apps every thing is smooth
the software will i really like it better than the other fully optimized androids will that is just me
the screen are superior aside from the viewing angels which is as every one say is amazingly horrible but that is a great feature for me
the battery hold up for a day with a fairly heavy usage like i have my 3g opened the whole day but never used a wifi or a bluetooth outside my home a lot of whats app and facebook and the important email sending and i really like to watch some anime episodes in my tea break ;p i read the usual news as well
about the camera for my office photos and my hanging out is perfect and smooth
the updates of sony mobiles are slow i admit it but they come eventually am already used to them hehe
the usb on the go works perfect and the sound is not loud but the quality is superb
the details while using the headphones are in another league i never compared it to the new dogs but am sure they are just perfect
in overall the phone hardware is not outdated in the way its totally useless its just the technology is fast but there is no support for this technology
the s4 killer is the 600 the 600 killer is the exynos 5 the e5 killer is the 800 and they are all in less than a year not to forget intel atom and nv tegra
we are waiting for the new 4.2 update which will improve the camera even more and the over all performance will have a great boost as well
go and chick it in any show room and put in mind what are u looking in ur next smartphone
and sry u were right this is an opinion section not a battle field one
