Below is what you post at S4 page in GSMArena~

for me i don't own both but if i want to choose between the two i will go for the full hd screen with the much accurate colors,i will go for the bigger screen but smaller body,this means i will go for galaxy s4,i like to watch movies and tv shows on my phone s,and that is why for me any improvement in the screen is big welcome for me.
my work separates me a lot from my beloved laptop,so i have to had a good pocket friendly alternative.
the s4 camera is better than s3 camera ,i find this another reason to go for s4 instead of the s3.
You are just a loyal Sammy fan and wanna bash all other brands in the world~
Does Sammy pay you a lot for what you did for pass a month?
I suggest you to write a letter to Sammy and ask for some money~
Then you can buy a S4 and have REAL experience with it...
Till then you can stop posting here~
Because NOBODY will trust what you write...
As what I said is all TRUE~
Your comments are all based on reviews...
I bet you never even see any of the smartphones released this year~
Keep it up reading reviews and have virtual "experience" with it...
I cant't switch-off my Sony Xperia Z when I want to. I noticed it last week and early this week I tried to switch it off and it did but now I can't switch it off again. What could be the cause? Called my network provider but no satisfactory answer.

usually when u want to compare between two cameras u send the photos to your pc,so u will easily notice the difference.
according to gsmarena the resolved detail in xperia z photo is hardly spectacular and noticeably lower compared to Galaxy S4's samples and the noise levels are only average. There's also noticable purple fringing and while the dynamic range is on par between the two, the Galaxy S4 has the upper hand in terms of contrast.
help me guys , i have i problem with my notification led :( how to fix this

i don't beleive that u compared your xz screen to gs4 screen ,u can't even dare to show your phone in the presence of s4 or htc one,people and scientists reviewed the gs4 screen and confirmed that it is capable to produce realistic accurate colors to the level of the best screen in color accuracy ,the iphone 5 screen,with galaxy s4 you can choose between LED tv experience or the LCD experience.
regarding heating i will put the s4 under heavy usage and i will comment about that next week.

lumia is a nice phone but windows phones are not desired as android phones.
blackberry z is too late phone and os with very poor chances to compete with the top phones.
xperia z has poor battery performance ,poor loud speaker performance,camera performance can't even match galaxy s3 and iphone 5 camera,obligatory scratchable screen protector,no infra red port,poor contrast with poor viewing angle.
Lol i read some opinion from sammy boys. They always talk alot and never seen the truth. S4 has many bugs and problem in real life. Go to XDA Dev and check about S4 bugs. From the camera, screen smearing, screen black script, wifi bug, and battery as well. Don't talk big when u know nothing. Google first then talk. Just write "Galaxy S4 Bugs" and you'll see :)

Xperia Z, HTC One, Lumia 920, BB Z10, great phones. Then there's a huge gap......... to the s4. Sorry to say, but the s4 is a mistake from samsung, other companies will increase their sales because of the s4 failure, despite still most users stare blind at cores and samsung ads.

Air gestures can be inconsistent: Naturally, there’s always some sort of learning curve with anything new. As for myself, I have very little issue waving my hand over the display using its new air gestures to scroll up/down in the stock browser, or move through images in the gallery, but for those who tried it for the first time, they probably thought it’d be more intuitive, which resulted in many inconsistent responses. Personally, I would love to see the feature improved by being able to track my hand moment-by-moment – as opposed to doing a complete air gesture to execute a task. It's like scrolling on a resistive screen versus capacitive one.
You can scroll up/down via air gestures, but not left/right in the browser: This one totally blows my mind! Yes, it’s great that I can eat a footlong sandwich while having the option to scroll up/down in the stock browser without having a crumb hitting it, but what’s preventing them for enabling us to scroll left/right? Oh wait, doing that permits me to move between any opened tabs! To tell you the truth, it would’ve been more useful if they just simply replaced that in favor of scrolling horizontally.
No “pinch air gesture”: We’re certainly still far from seeing that Minority Report like experience with our smartphone UIs, but there’s no way to do pinch air gestures with the new TouchWiz Nature UX experience. Seeing that there’s a new capacitive panel on board with the Galaxy S4, which brings for the Note’s air view functionality with the aid of hovering with our finger, we thought it would’ve been possible to see “pinch air gestures.” Despite its omission, which is probably due to a combination of hardware limitations, we’re hoping to see some form of it with future versions.
Not enough third party app support: As much as I love to show some magic hand waving tricks to random people interested in seeing the Galaxy S4, it would’ve been nice to see support for air gestures in other third party apps. Still, considering how quickly Sammy was able to expand its support of apps for its multi-window feature, we hope it’s only a matter of time before the same happens with air gestures.
We like to blink and look away at times, so smart pause can be bothersome at times: I have this involuntary condition where I like to blink normally, or even look away briefly – like any other normal human being. However, if you have the smart pause feature on, you’ll need to constantly have your eyes affixed on the screen so the video you’re watching doesn’t spaz out every few seconds. Instead, it would’ve been nice if there were some kind of leeway before it triggers – then again, at least we can deactivate it entirely.
You’ll need to know a lot of people using S4s to try its Group Play features: I really want to show off some of the Group Play features of the Galaxy S4, but there’s just one problem – I don’t know too many people in real life right now with the S4 in hand as well. Without question, multiplayer game play on the S4 seems like a wonderful thing, as well as its handful of photo sharing options, but there’s no way to make use of them unless I know other people who are using the phone too. Well, maybe in a month or so I can randomly game with someone in the subway to kill some time? Oh wait, we both need to download and play the same game to do that!
Smart Scroll is nice, but again, there’s no scrolling left/right: So far, people have been mostly impressed by the S4’s Smart Scroll feature – the one that relies on eye tracking to scroll in the web browser vertically. However, the surrounding lighting conditions can hamper its operation. Now, the thing that people don’t see when I show off the feature, is that I’m slightly tilting the phone forward/back to get it to function fully. If it can track my eyes up/down, then why is it that it can’t track it left/right? This, I ponder many nights in bed.
I want to get fit, but I need more than the phone & S Health: In its attempt to monitor our daily lives, Samsung introduced S Health with the Galaxy S4 – the one stop-shop for all your health tracking needs. As a fitness fanatic myself, I really appreciate that Sammy is tackling this new category head-on, but there’s just so much that the smartphone can do all by itself. Tracking how many steps I take is wonderful, but you’ll need to carry along a heart rate monitor in order to get an accurate calorie burn number. Well, at least they’re coming out with an assortment of accessories in the near future to give those who need precise counts.
Hi All.. I bought this mobile a month back in India (Chennai) at the cost of INR 38,000... Its a great model from Sony... The camera quality and the presentation of the photo looks great. I faced a issue in this mobile which is i can't able switch off the mobile and for that Sony also provide a updated too... Other than this case i haven't faced any issues... The battery of the mobile looks fine and good for me... I am more satisfied with mobile. Really good performance.
Quite big news today about Sony profits..
The Z is too big for me (so are others its getting silly) and dont like screen but if they were to chage this i might rebuy Sony..I am on other peoples sides about screen its not the best at all it is poor..Remember tv's are always inside the home a smartfone for me carrys out my computing and telephony needs OUTSIDE away from home or work so just because bravia is used on their tv's does not mean its good for mobile..
Imagine if many people dont buy this cause of screen and Sony change it? more sales.
I have a 1 month old Z, I fitted the roxio genuine bumper and screen protectors on it the day of purchase. Today, after I took the phone out of my front jeans pocket, a couple of small cracks have appeared coming from the edge of the glass that look like they were caused by an impact or a slight twsiting of the phone, but there was nothing else in my pocket or any mis-handling of the phone in any way! I'm dissapointed the screen damaged so easily and now the top half of the touchscreen is totally unresponsive. I upgraded from the Iphone due to very weak screens. Would this damage be covered by the Sony warranty? Anyone else have similar experiences?
