The other thing about built in storage with no sd support is the premium they charge...SD card from 16 to 64 GB here in UK is about 23GBP yet companys charge 200GBP difference between models from a 16GB model to 64GB model,,,a lovely tidy profit for them isn't it...Plus they buy in big,big bulk so they get these memory cards even cheaper makingv more profit..
Yes built in storage with no expandable memory is all based on making more profits...If all your apps are on internal phone memory all you are doing is putting media on external sds card causin NO PROBLEMS for developers whatsoever...Google are saying its security issues and apps to sd is causing this but if all your doing is using sd for mp3;vids/photos whats the problem really???

Load of rubbish i am 100% for external storage with a nice big onboard memory for apps.I am not saying your comment is rubbish i mean this removal of card slot..As for LG nexus having 16gb max then that is taking the mickey it is now 2013..The Nexus is Googles flagship it should have had 128GB...16gb what an absolute embarrassment LG where are you 2007??
really i am a sony fan
Really i am disappointed with z camera compared to lg pro and apple 4s
its no clarity in its image and blury
can it play 1080p .MKV video file + subtitle?
i'm drooling to buy this phone but most of my activity is watching video and surfing the internet so i don't want to convert my 1080p .MKV video to play it on my phone...
my existing phone is Galaxy S2 work well with all video format, the reason i want to change it is i want to change it for newer phone model with more capabilites, not lack of existing capabilities in my SGS2.

Anonymous, 10 Mar 2013The design is just FLAT, SQUARE and DULL just like their TV's. Boring.....You do realise that a square has all its 4 sides of equal length! Troll much?
AnonD-25258, 10 Mar 2013Don't be so ignorant, of course I don't own this phone.. If you read my comments you would kno... moreI hate trolls and liars! True the Nexus 4 does not lag but neither does the Xperia Z as it is lag free, I know as I have both phones and been using the Xperia Z exclusively for the last week! The XZ is truly a wonder!!
Spending 4 days with this beast i must say that this is my best smart phone ever. Having the experience S3 and IP5 as well, i must confess that this is more than a class upper than those two.the smoothness is extra ordinary and i didnt notice a single lag. The hardware is powerful, the UI is super beautiful and the battery performs well. Today i charged it 10 hours ago and its about 5 hours that im working with it intensively (surfing the net, downloading and playing games) and now that im writing this comment with it, 45% of its charge is left. For me this is satisfactory. I think this is the best choice right now and im happy with my decision.
AnonD-118669, 09 Mar 2013Guys, how to install apps on MicroSD? i don't find the option in Settings. I heard XPERIA phon... moreUnfortunately installing apps on SD card is not possible from JellyBean update, so it affects all updates after JB. Google did it to guarantee best android performance for users, because apps installed on SD card were performing slower than those on internal memory. Also Google is thinking to completely remove SD card support from future android devices.

Anonymous, 10 Mar 2013Don't mind him, he's just trolling. Bet he doesn't even own this monster phone.Don't be so ignorant, of course I don't own this phone.. If you read my comments you would know that. In real world usage my nexus 4 is much more responsive and screen is nicer.. Although not 1080. Xperia lags and that is the truth
I have the Xperia Z since the 5 march and i must say the phone is overall excellent sound quality is really good the camera and recording with phone is also pretty good and there is nothing wrong with the sreen the the phone is good visible in sunligth which is moore importent then very good viewing angles
battery quality is really poor and phone gets hot.If you use 2hrs continually you will loose all power.
completed 48 hours with the beast Sony Xperia Z ! Xperia Z is the best smartphone now available. great performance. fast means fast !
superb processor speed.
great 1080p display (i don't know how to talk about viewing angles. but i can see everything clearly when i look from sides) great to watch movies & full hd videos.
rear camera is amazing in day light, thanks to superior auto mode. it automatically detects all scene modes including macro. low light shooting is average. full hd video recording is good. front camera is also good.
inbuilt speaker is below average. low volume. but earpiece volume is good & headphone is amazing.
battery is average, but not bad !
good job by Sony ! thanks
