advice, 26 Apr 2013in youtube search bar write :xperia z drop test Hello advice! Remember me? Anyways, what's with all the "gorilla glass is end all" stuff? Get real! There is no saving once a phone of this size falls on a concrete floor facedown. I have a note2 and don't expect it to survive such a fall (it does have gorilla glass). I also have Xperia ZL (had Xperia S before) & honestly think sony devices have a way better build quality than Samsung (which easily yield to daily wear n tear, bezel paint chipping off, sqeaking, flimsy pasticky feel etc., let alone surviving a drop/fall). All these drop test are pointless imo as I've seen note2s shattering from just 2 feet high while others surviving 4 feet drop!
Xperia Z is a very good smartphone. Each phone/brand has its pros n cons, so does the XZ, or GS4 or HTC One. Hence, I buy the one that suits my needs better, whatever brand it is, and do not trash any particular phone/brand!

bad low light camera
sometime certain apps just won't tap
problematic location for mic (just where you put your hand when your talking)
decides to go silent by itself...
other than that it's awesome, the camera is my biggest drawback but i'm still very pleased

Have you seen the video above?
And all the videos... moreas u might know gorilla glass is a scratch resistant and not break resistant ,so these drop tests depends on which part of the phone has touched the ground first ,in your video when both phones fell from the car,the iphone fell and rolled on its sides,while s3 fell on the screen surface which is the most dangerous fall,we might need to see the iphone 4s drop on the screen surface so we can give final judgment.
the gorilla glass is very thin but yet it is the most resistant to scratches ,and in the same time it is shatter proof (like the car glass)so it does not need an obligatory screen protector on the top of it.
the icons appear as if it was printed on the screen when using the gorilla glass and that is why viewing angles are great,also u still have the choice to use screen protector or not.
sony forces the users to leave the screen protector in its place,it is difficult to remove and had sony logo printed on it,the screen protector is easily scratchable and in few months u start to wish if u can just remove it.
sony could use a normal glass and no need to scratch resistant one because u have to keep the obligatory scratchable screen protector??!?!?!?!?!?!?
by the way i am using xperia phone with the scratched screen protector so i know exactly what i am talking about.
i am not a fan boy for any company,my next phone might be htc one or the s4.

And all the videos in my previous comments?
GS3 have Higher Quality Glass?
Please don't give me the joke of the day~
It can't even win iPhone 4s glass...==
For the shatter-proof sheet~
I need to bring back my old comment...
Below is my explanation to a fella last month~
Please read it carefully...
No doubt that the "Shatter-proof sheet" also helps to give a little durability to SONY Xperia Z's Dragontrail Glass~
But please bare in mind that Dragontrail Glass itself is more durable than Gorilla Glass without the Shatter-proof sheet...
Can you please go and check the usage of Shatter-proof sheet~
Let me explain to you...
Shatter-proof sheet doesn't mean "keeping the glass and making it don't break"~
You are getting it wrong...
Do you know that what is the term for "glass broken into small tiny pieces"?
It's called SHATTERING~
Shatter-proof sheet's main function is not strengthen the glass...
It's keeping the broken pieces intact to the phone after the incident happened~
This tech is first used on car window to keep driver safety when thieves smash the window...
SONY care for users safety~
The durable glass pieces might bounce out and hurt people if it happened to break...
The layer of shatter-proof sheet will keep glass pieces intact to the phone~
This seemed that Sammy glass is not durable enough~
Because it wont have the strength to bounce out...

in the units i've used (jelly bean 4.1.1-4.1.2)i didn't meet any lag when opening the keypad or the virtual keyboard may be these issue were in early firmwares.
regarding the comparison of the built quality ,samsung is known for using plastic,which is cheaper than metal or the glass,a lot of people wish that s3 or s4 is built of metal.
sony and htc designs are better than samsung.
wave phones may be the exclusion.
but for me the visible phone parts are the body and the screen,samsung uses lower quality material than sony in building phone body but uses higher quality glass for protecting the screen that does not need obligatory scratchable scatter proof screen protector to protect the glass like the one sony uses?!!!??
