kingaryan, 12 Apr 2013your just a samsung fanboy and first of all s4 isnt cheaper u dumm people having a plastic pho... moreThe s4 is $800 aus to preorder so it's more dare then the iphone and all it is plastic parts warped in plastic, I hat metal cause the edges dent to easy and it gets hot and metal gets marks quickly I got a ipad and a pc so I know. Iphone too old, everyone knows it, but this phone I heard that the 1st lot had bugs but after little bugs yes it's glass but I don't drop things will hardly. It's water and dust proof which all high end phones should have cause they are high end sony makes the Camera for the s4. And sony makes parts will so i mean inside the parts will last, the only con is the software sony tends to always have bugs
To everyone saying TFT LCD Sux maybe must check your eyes and telling the truth after you seeing this.
I hope GSMArena can post this too on their blog :D
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2013And to add in some fact. You need to check around.
Amoled is in fact better in sunlight. Its ... morepoor sammy boy crying again.
Oh baby, you should join Sammy's marketing dept!
okay baby, read this "White balance (WB) is the process of removing unrealistic color casts, so that objects which appear white in person are rendered white in your photo"
and since Sammy's AMOLED is not RGB but pentile, there is either greenish tint or bluish tint in the screen. (due to extra green or blue subpixel)
If you don't see it, its coz you have faulty eyes or you are too-blind to see any problems in AMOLED.
I know TFT-LCD is not perfect but neither is AMOLED!
better screens ? LG's IPS or SHARP's IGZO.
AADi, 13 Apr 2013You say that its a date issue but the day and time has been set by default in the phone. Is th... morewhy the fuss dude? simply make a software repair update from official PC Suite, if there will be any s/w problem it will be sorted out!
Or, if you really want to seek help on such topics, try XDA, rather thn GSMarena!
Sony Please included docking charger. Take care your customer. Then we love you more!!!
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2013If you're gonna say who can message you back and who cannot then you really don't need anyone'... moreDude, yo are entitled to your opinion but I have not experienced the so called issues you mention. I have used the S2, S3, all variants of the iPhone, most HTC and a few Sony Ericsson/Sony phones over the years and can say this is the best of all. Yes, there may be better, arguably the HTC One but that is a matter of preference/opinion as at this level of performance, it is marginal and not noticeable in everyday use. The screen on the HTC One has better viewing angles but viewing anges are overrated and not an issue for me! Who, pray tell me, watches their TV from the side? I do not look at my phone from the side, so this issue is over stated IMHO. As for the screen, TFT is LCD which uses a Thin Film Transistor to improve imagery, that plus the Bravia Engine 2 makes watching anything on this phone absolutely brilliant and a joy. Superb phone which is in top 3 of best handsets ever made.
no problem with the XZ this smartphone is awesome taken daily interest from GS4...Sony u rock this year..
N.M, 13 Apr 2013The camera of sony xperia Z is pathetic ! the quality is veryy poor...dsnt even look like its ... moreMillions disagree with you and are perfectly happy with their purchase. What is truly pathetic is you and other trolls like you. Go buy something you like and post on that blog instead of making stupid, banal and inane comments about a product you do not own and probably never even touched. Go get a life, troll...
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2013If you're gonna say who can message you back and who cannot then you really don't need anyone'... morehey thanks for ur reply mate
so u have used the XZ & the issues i mentioned r true so i should go with HTC one
The reason im confused is bcoz i can get XZ & HTC 1 @ 10-15 discount
so XZ will cost me US $639[35000 INR]+free headset & Premium case
on the other hand HTC 1 will cost me US$700
I am looking to buy a new phone can u say which is nice xperia z or s3 or htc butterfly

N.M, 13 Apr 2013The camera of sony xperia Z is pathetic ! the quality is veryy poor...dsnt even look like its ... moreIt's not pathetic. Though it is a little below average. Also it was found to take great burst mode shots.
What's pathetic is all this trolling
The camera of sony xperia Z is pathetic ! the quality is veryy poor...dsnt even look like its 13MP :S

inspire_me, 13 Apr 2013here comes another cry baby, giving wrong justifications!
you yourself know its pentile, an... moreAnd to add in some fact. You need to check around.
Amoled is in fact better in sunlight. Its due to generally being less reflective and having such extreme contrast levels. So even though it's generally not as bright as an LCD is still is easier to see in the sunlight.
And I said white balance. Not showing whites . It has to do with the balance of colors. And the whole Amoled white thing is a myth. It's very close and extremely closer to white than LCD is to black. Most screens have tints of certain colors be it white or whatever if you stare real close and look for them.
I never said this or that or the third. What I said was only in direct reply to what they said.
