Please have this debate elsewhere. Add him as Facebook friend or something. This is comment page regarding USER experience correction to specs, I don't see how this helps potential consumers into buying this product.
In my opinion this best treatment for trollers is to ignore them or report them to gsmarena. At least this way we are not dropping low to their level. I just find it funny that although we defend ourselves hard we still don't go crapping on S4 page, which is fantastic because we are more educated phone users and we aren't trashy. But to stay this way we shouldn't get into a crossfire with these trollers. Report them so their post can be removed and that's it.
So, when potential buyers read comments and reviews they have something positive to read about and not little kids arguing on this page. I am a XZ user too but frankly speaking when HTC one and S4 releases they will capture a majority of the market share (especially S4), it doesn't mean it's the better phone. In many ways it is, but better or not is down to personal preference. I've come from iPhone 5 and for me a bigger screen, IP57, premium feel and most importantly smoothness of UI as iOS is the smoothest when it comes to animation were all winners. It doesn't mean it's better then iPhone 5 and all phones will have pros and cons over one another. Like S4 benchmarks are all winners against XZ but to be honest what do I need to do with all these benchmarks? XZ runs so smooth, I dare to say its gonna be smoother than the S4 UI. Plus is water resistant which really is a bonus.
Some people complain about loudspeaker. Now I always use headphones for music and movies. Loudspeaker on XZ, S3 were all poor to begin with. Not punchy, no bass compared to iPhone 4-5. Does it mean iPhone 4 is better than XZ now?
Lets not get nit-picky and share the positive and negative experiences only from genuine users. I've had mine for around 5 weeks now and I must say although I am in love with the handset there are certain aspects that aren't as good as iPhone 5. We learn to compromise as all manufacturers offer what they can and we choose what we need. Simple. If I go to an S4 - I will compromise ip57, compromise premium feel and ip57 however I will gain a better handset under than hood. What is more important for me? What is more important for you? Only you can decide, but we can help by pointing out positives and negatives from genuine users only,
There is no need for Sony is crap or Saumsng is rubbish. Come on guys, are we still in primary school?
My opinion is right now is slowly and slowly I'm not missing the iPhone 5, when I pick up my wife's one it feels so small yet the UI is still amazing. Day by day my XZ battery performs better - you guys will realise soon the battery is good. Only reason people complain about battery life is because the phone you now own is new and shiny. The phone has never been so active in your hands before. As time goes by and when you get over the fact it's new, you will stop playing with it as much naturally and it's only then when you should compare the battery life. Enjoy.
I was very happy with all the reviews i saw here and on other web sites and decided to pre order Xperia Z. Never again. It was so bad that after changing from galaxy s2 i was happy to return it as my phone developed a bad pixel. I know i will not buy One, not sure about S4.

[deleted post]what a stupid logic! everybody has used plastic for years and never complaint ? huh? does that mean things should never change even if new things are available ?
I can say- everybody has used smaller screens, non-color screens, 2 mp cameras, etc and no body used to complain!
so why to evolve ? huh ?
More over using plastic is not bad, but the "hyperglazed" plastic that Samsung uses is an eye-sore, as compared to other plastic-body phones!
stop crying and justifying plastic, baby!

But then after looking at some YouTube videos, I realised that it is really fragile. I love the design but the quality is really bad. its really such a shame that the looks are so nice but the quality just sucks. I guess the saying is true even for phones: its not about what's on the outside, its what's on the inside that counts

But I've been doing that kind of activities for a long time on iPad 2's & iPhone 4S's Safari but no problem on DISQUS at all regarding the highlighting the texts as well as copy & paste them. But if what you said about iPhone 5 is true that would be odd, and I can't wait to try it out on iPhone 5 as well.
