AnonD-120151, 05 Mar 2013This phone is a tad too late in the market!...Quadcore phones are all around much before then ... moreDid you say your handle was Caveman? Seriously, there may have been quadcore phones around but quad is still the mode. Octacore is really quadcore with 4 cores handling the heavy processing and the remaining 4 power management, effectively a gimic. This is the first phone with full HD display, the Butterfly although released in December is not generally available.
So, do you want to re-visit your lame comment? There is no phone from last year remotely matchng these specs.
AnonD-1094, 05 Mar 2013Hi buddy can u tell us about the looks r they really eye catching , iam interested in white , ... moreThanks Bro! All I can say is that when I first got it, I thought the screen was a bit big but am now used to it and it is perfect. As for the screen, the colours literally pop, I have pretty much used all top end phones and this is the best I have experienced yet. The colours are natural and vibrant and the blacks are certainly deep enough for me! Absolutely exemplar! A true marvel!!
sony fan, 05 Mar 2013i waited for this phone. i dont care about viewing angles because i dont use my phone sideways... moreDude - a phone is not meant to be a laptop! Mine lasts all day and so far always have more than 55% left at the end of the day, currently 57 and the phone has been on all day in normal use!
142217, 05 Mar 2013Hi everyone and sorry for my extremely bad English.
I spend half a day with HTC ONE , in Sams... moreYeah its to be expected that the HTC could appear sharper for people with good eyes, the PPI is after all higher, the display look much smaller because it IS much smaller. Anyway, i would not want that small display, i guess next year we can get 5 inch phones with 2560x1440, for 2013 i am willing to settle for 443 PPI.
So the battery drained down real fast and hot, sounds like you were doing something very resource intensive?
Hi everyone and sorry for my extremely bad English.
I spend half a day with HTC ONE , in Samsung building in Brussels( its not a joke)
I have my Sony Z for one week and my first filling that Sony more solid , but !!! for one hand users HTC is more comfortable. Resolution on ONE is more sharp , but screen look much smaller. Only big advantage of HTC is loudspeakers strong and clear. BTW after 3/4 hours it was remaining 20% and back cover is very hot. HTC is definitely not for games. Sens its relay niece for first 50 minutes. I didn't try the camera and I don’t now how the Samsung got it and maybe its not finale version for retail. If yes - sorry for HTC
AnonD-116479, 05 Mar 2013HTC One camera not that bad. I also thought xperia z has the best camera. How ever HTC One Cam... moreActually the best camera is.
1- Nokia 808
2- Xperia Z
3- HTC one
4- galaxy camera (not that great)
5- Lumia 920 (worst)
So after a 30 minutes under the water ( 1m ) what will happened with phone...explode or what?
Anonymous, 05 Mar 2013In regards of docomo and the other version. I think it is better not too rely on the video pro... moreThe difference in contrast and color shift in the video was there, for me its obvious that there are different displays. However both of them are good, just one is better than the other.
I think the best display is not restricted to the japanese version, i believe there are both types of displays used in the intl version as well, and that would explain why some reviews say the display is not great while others say its "extremely bright and very vivid colors".
I hope i can get my Z this week, if the TFT used on Z is similar to other Xperia models then i should be able to see the difference, if its an IPS then i will see it. The tests here in scandinavia has worshipped the display of the Z, the review units could be IPS in this region then, maybe also the retail units will be IPS. However it will be impossible to tell the difference between IPS and PLS (if Samsung is one of Sonys suppliers then it will be PLS, will have to open the phone to find out details like that, NOT an option with a waterproof device).
I like the waterproof feature. A little big, with battery-consuming screen. Sony makes waterproof phones and dual-sim phones. The same Xperia Z waterproof and dual-sim, with a smaller screen (4 or 4.3")and better battery could be the ultimate smartphone.
AnonD-120295, 05 Mar 2013is it really worth buying when s4 will be coming with exynos 5 octa???????So what does the SGS IV Offer that Sony Xperia Z does not offer aside from it most probably going to be made out of plastic with a bad design?!? Almost all of the features that SIV has is already covered by the Z and some are not that much of a difference like the battery.. S Voice?!? I'd Rather go for the Dust and Water Proof feature coz its more useful in real life situations dont you think?!? I dont know about processing power difference but i doubt that it will be that much of a difference as well if not going to be at least the same level. They are Samsung and Not Apple so processing speed will not be that much difference coz apple iphone i believe still has a much faster processor even if they only have dual core chips used..
sony fan, 05 Mar 2013i waited for this phone. i dont care about viewing angles because i dont use my phone sideways... moreDont assume its bec. Full hd and 2330 mah. Most of actual user says its good you can make it atleasta day or 2. First two days of the phone loss faster and after that yo'll see a great improvement.
ki, 05 Mar 2013s it dual sim? pls tell me.???Can you read specification? Someone mentioned that this phone is dual sim?
There is your answer!
AnonD-86903, 05 Mar 2013in the first two images there is not a huge difference and in third one Z is way better than O... moreI saw that also, and i was impressed with the third photo. Look at the Lumia 920! Ridiculous! Nokia fans has some nerve to say 920 is the best cam phone, im sure its great if one like blurred with cartoon colors.
Now the 4th photo, theres no Htc One here but look at the faces on the 920 photo, it looks like the old canon inkjet printers who gave everyone a red magenta skintone. The softening the Z does here is not really desirable but it produces a comfortable photo.
Anyway, as we seen in PAs test already, the Z beats the 920, again. Not sure what to say about One, its too low resolution but it captures details inside the shades that also the 808 is unable of (first photo).
AnonD-86903, 05 Mar 2013in the first two images there is not a huge difference and in third one Z is way better than O... moreIn regards of docomo and the other version. I think it is better not too rely on the video proof. Cause technicaly speaking why would sony to make diferent phone with just lcd screen quality it doesnt makes sense. And check some forum with docomo and the other version. And its true grey color was in the other version cause of wallpaper now we most of the other fanboy bashes the what they says its ugly but the information was myth or not true. as what I always post here dont rely in 1 information since it is credible but they are only person sometimes makes mistakes. As for me this video must be investigated further. Cause some eocomo and international version user says the picture is good. Check again xda forum. As for me they are more reliable cause they are actual user also
sony fan, 05 Mar 2013i waited for this phone. i dont care about viewing angles because i dont use my phone sideways... morei think the battery is not that bad if you're not a heavy user. i read lots of articles about the battery and all of them said that it lasts more than a day with an average usage. with heavy usage it lasts about 7,8 hours.
AnonD-116479, 05 Mar 2013HTC One camera not that bad. I also thought xperia z has the best camera. How ever HTC One Cam... morein the first two images there is not a huge difference and in third one Z is way better than One. just look at details on third one.
i waited for this phone. i dont care about viewing angles because i dont use my phone sideways. i like the waterproof a lot. but battery is not matching the demands of the full HD screen. i hope they will release a newer one with say 3,000mah battery. and so i had sold mine online. i guess this is the worst sony phone when it comes to power comsuption and battery ratio. the full HD screen is useless with a weak battery
htc ?nhaaaa, 03 Mar 2013guyz are acting so insecure..........with our Z come on guyz plz go to ur blog and defence ur ... moreHTC One camera not that bad. I also thought xperia z has the best camera. How ever HTC One Camera quite better than Xperia z, and xperia z camera also great.
