I am considering of buying an Xperia Z would like to know if its a good phone over all?
Sony Launched the phone with keeping in mind, the best a person needs, not what the competition says. Water resistance, shatter proof means you need to worry less about your phone. Okay, Samsung s4 may have better specifications, but Sony will launch even better next time and samsung will get even more better. This goes on and we keep spending.
So, my opinion, Sony is best, atleast it looks impressive and different. No cheap bodies. Secondly, screen i feel is better than Artificial AMOLEDS. Best smartphone till now.

Ajis, 11 Apr 2013I agree!! I use xperia z just for 3 week it's noting special...poor battrey one thing best of ... morehahahahha.. bullshit... i've been using iphone for more than 4 years and i never consider iphone 4 as my iphone 4 replacement... the best from iphone only app store, siri? most of iphone 5 user in my office never used so called personal assistant
kk, 11 Apr 2013Z will get best fog of the year award. did u felt bad sammy fan? I m saying again that samsung will be awarded as ''THE MOST UGLIEST SMARTPHONE MAKER'' this year. Though it already got the COPYCAT earlier.And soon they will be banned for us cheap plastic,as polythene's got ban.
ian dude , 11 Apr 2013i hate it because i dnt own it >>>I like your comment! Hahaha! Very true!
I donn't like this phone. It's hardly better than apple iphone 5 and the poor among poorest battery performance among its competitors too makes a big reason for not prefering it.even its sound quality is not as good as it is promished especially when it is wet.
LISTEN UP guys! Please try any WEB BROWSERS on your XPERIA Z by opening one article in GSM Arena Blog
Go to DIQUS comment section at the bottom page from the article and Try to HIGHLIGHT TEXTS as well as COPY & PASTE them especially the longest comment you can find.
I found only CHROME is working properly with these functions on XPERIA Z, while others can't and Dolphin has strange behaviour. It pastes the different texts from what it copied for the long comment ones from DISQUS comments.
And please get back with your feedback, hope to hear from you guys soon. I'll be checking this thread anytime soon.
Ajis, 11 Apr 2013I agree!! I use xperia z just for 3 week it's noting special...poor battrey one thing best of ... moreI used to own the iP5 and hated it, hated trading in my iP4S for it, hated the boring UI and stupid app drawer. The moment I heard of the phone the iP5 was history and I cannot imagine using one again after the Xperia Z! In fact, I can't imagine using an iPhone again unless Apple does something really ultra radical, like a 4.7 screen!
i dont hate samsung i already used a lot of their products every body have a way to look into things i dont like the crowded UI for example but others prefer it i am sick of the traditional plastic body the benchmarks have reached a point that it's useless what is the benefits of having the best benchmarks if i am not using it in actual life that is how sony always worked slow evolution comparing to other brands am totally with you but they are giving what exactly the apps do need and about the tft for me is way better than the led and its sibling the amoled
Whatever samsung has manybawsome features to buy s4 even main camera is much better than xperia z... samsung just lacks the body...!! But to remain it lighter cheaper in cost plastic body is necessory
Ajis, 11 Apr 2013I agree!! I use xperia z just for 3 week it's noting special...poor battrey one thing best of ... moreand that is just funny ... because after i used this phone for the first ten days i threw my IP5 to my little brother because it was clear to me how better the iphone was ... or the opposite .. mmm ... i totally forget about the iphone anyways
[deleted post]mmm u make me feel like u lose something important every time one of us owned one get real please
