Skendy, 02 Mar 2013Few days Im use this device... but... my opinions is, not better than N2 :/.....precisely......I can't understand what is the big hoo haaa on the Z except for the water resistance.......even the sharpness in other Sony model such as S V J is par with the Z......just can't understand.....Kraits 1.5 which others have been using years ago.....
.......nothing is great except the water resistance .......even the design is simple brick square......
Skendy, 02 Mar 2013Few days Im use this device... but... my opinions is, not better than N2 :/I can understand that, note 2 has enough performance, and some people actually like the UI. But the low resolution and bad colors and the color clipping is severe to me. The camera is also making it flow over for me, great in optimal conditions but so many failed photos in bad conditions. Turn off the flash and it does not even try to focus. Is not on the perfect days we need the best cam but on the bad days. Any phone can take good photos in perfect conditions.

So I got my Z on launch day but have noticed that the audio when in a call is up and down, some times it's loud other times it's awfully quiet even on loud speaker. I have two dead pixels and my WiFi connection keeps dropping out even though it's fine on my iPhone, Mac and S3. I love the Z just gutted about these three issues :(
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2013Then dont buy sony smartphone seriously. Btw now another 1 complaigning about viewing angle. i... moreThe Xperia z has just good viewing angles.
You can just check it out in the stores.
Even the black is very good, better Than AMoled type of screen. Look at the black levels from PSV better Than all AMoled screens, becouse PSV use a real OLED screen.
[deleted post]Then dont buy sony smartphone seriously. Btw now another 1 complaigning about viewing angle. it is not the dragontail fault its the tft lcd screen. I had xperia s and what I had saw at my corner scratch is bec. Of I coverd a exact fit in a camera bag. The ziper scratch it. and its my fault that hapend you should check why did your phone got scratch
[deleted post]Boy, will you please stop give here your stupid lies?
Xperia Z USE A DRAGONTRAIL GLASS!!!!!!
XPERIA T USE NOT A DRAGONTRAIL GLASS.
Sony always use screen protector over the screen, its standards even the phone has DRAGONTRAIL GLASS.
So stop with your lies please.
I bought my purple xperia z yesterday and was highly impressed with it.The only shortfall that i have to comment is the supposely scratch-resistant feature.My back camera lens have a fine scratch line after a few times in and out of my jeans and bag.Maybe it was a mistake on my part for not getting a backcase protector but with the scratch resistant feature, i thought otherwise.
i used to have samsung s3 and i enjoyed it so much.it was the best phone to me.until one day i had an accident at the beach.my s3 soaked in the seawater and couldnt be repaired.sometimes these things happened you couldnt do much about it.i wished i had a phone as good as s3 but could withstand water immersion.sony experia z really does the job. now i can enjoy active outdoor lifestlye without having to worry about phone so much.
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2013LOL, really? NOTE II is faster?! How so? What about the brilliant FULL HD screen, battery sa... more1,5 Kraits Quod Cora with 1.7 same chip ......1.6 exynos .......and let alone 600 snapdragon HTC One...no match ....
...Full HD.??.we are not watching a TV ..we are looking at the hp screen with a mere 5" which make watching soccer like see ants running chasing round bits.....most brands claiming Full HD or HD quality but when you compare ,the different is not like a zealous "WOW !!!"...but a weak "huh".
The best Sony Design is still Xperia S if compare to this.
KRISH, 01 Mar 2013does this phone support network 3g video calling?Yes
It has full-hd front cam
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2013Would you mind give us detailed comparison why are you saying htc one is better??? I don't think you can compare HTC 1 to this.. HTC one is NOWHERE near in terms of camera and display quality. Furthermore, this phone is waterproof. Go for this phone. I just got my Xperia Z and I'm loving it.
Sony still struggling to beat galaxy S3 in 2013. Is it true that Bravia engine doesnt support while viewing web pages ? Poor audio quality for skype ??
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2013Some forum says its because of the wall paper cause sony used lot grey. Though it is not good ... moreTotally agree!
the screen will look washed out only if you keep the wallpaper that comes with the handset! I was really scared at the begining then when I changed the the wallpaper it looks fantastic ( grey colors will make it look wash out)...
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2013HTC's "beats audio" is a trash. There is nothing special about beats, just the name ... moreActualy it has hehe but.. If you analyzed it, it may only a equalizer in a fix setup. Cause htc one doesnt provide it. And sony does provide equaliser and customize it. I thnk sony is beter in terms of music quality.
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2013Just admit that the note 2 battery can be drained fast. I don't have an agenda to protect note... moreI did update it with the official firmware. I guess you don't know what rooting really means. And then I rooted it again.
Here's someone from the XDA Developers Forum on the Xperia Z who happens to have a Note II as well.
"I'm a hardcore user.. very crazy and always use it. Today I had almost 6h display on and I think it's awesome. My Note 2 provides 10 hours display-on but that is a different league. I'm satisfied! The battery needs to be charged by the way 5-6x to reach the full capacity. Incidentally the Snapdragon S4 Pro is the same as Snapdragon 600 officially confirmed by Qualcomm, just another name :D
Real Racing 3 is available since yesterday and the back is nice and warm when playing through the glass, it is super but not hot or uncomfortable :good:
I celebrate the Xperia Z :highfive:"
At least he's honest about how he can last 10 hours of screen-on time. You just need to keep telling yourself that the Note II sucks battery fast. And he gave the XZ a 6-hour screen-on time rating. This is probably 50% brightness. And then some report 4-5 hours of XZ screen usage, like Engadget.
No, I will not defend the Note II's color clipping in dark video scenes. There is clipping but not but not as bad as the pentile screen of the Note I. i just love the punchy eligibility against the daylight.
Given the screen of the XZ is full HD, giving you good privacy angles as some would like, waterproofed and thin - this will sell in millions with how popular it is in ratings. Yes, well worth your $993.
