The phone is out in Singapore and you can purchased it from today onwards from Singtel
The size of the screen is in fact the same size to One-X , 4.7"
The 3 home button occupied the screen itself which makes the screen smaller and not 5"
Other than that is a nice and great phone!

Now that I post that the X10 could do the up to 10 fingers who is laughing? har har... moreIt's Ok that u will not admit your mistake. Wasnt expecting you to and you are not required to. Moto boy ahah.
It's funny how you goggled up a link claiming that it is theoretically possible to make 10 finger multi on x10 ahah. Maybe you should read it again. Because it does not say that!
X10 has a hardware limitation that rules out multi touch, the 4 finger was a rumor that was later confirmed to be false. Sony did update x10 with some kind of multi touch, or dual, and this is known to be a buggy workaround where x and y coordinates must both be different. If your fingers cross it will not register. Not important anyway. What matters is that you prove your ignorance and lack of knowledge and now you added the inability to do research and understanding what you are reading.
[deleted post]Hey, motorola is a good phone. Would have been acceptable if you say a dumb phone. Btw, i'm gonna buy the xperia z and waiting for motorola x phone. Xperia z is such a beauty!

I'm not like you whom like to buy Sony just because you are a fan. I buy phones and resell them. Meaning you need to kwon your product. HTC, Samsung, Motorola, LG, Sony and others I buy them all but let me tell I sell more Samsung product than others.
I fixed phone too, Software and hardware and this is why I know even about old phones like X10. In 2009 I come to the SonyEricsson forum and my friend I will always come here.
You rather teach me something than think that you are so cleaver to tell me lies and stop me from this forum.
If you are cleaver tell me what did the Xperia Z bring to change to mobile game that was my question?
Zaru, 26 Feb 2013Se X10 has 10 fingers ahahahahaha..

first justify ... moreTo Zaru
Now that I post that the X10 could do the up to 10 fingers who is laughing? har har har har har har harrrrrrrrr...
I will tell you again Xperia Z is very cool and so far the best phone in the market and better than HTC One that my point of vue but if someone come up with lies or fanaticism, I will reply to that post a ask for reasons that makes the Xperia Z the best.
But I know why the Xperia is the best but will say it again you rather wait to cimpare it to the Galaxy S4 and the Motorola X phone they will be very good devices too.

Then SE released Xperia Arc then the up to 10 fingers technology could be transfer to the X10.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc Supports 'Unlimited'
Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Arc, the slim high-end
smartphone that was announced at CES with
Google's Android operating system on board, is
reportedly capable of offering true multi-touch
capabilities, with support for 'unlimited' points
That 'unlimited' figure is actually reduced to only 32 simultaneous loading
points, but that should be enough for any end-user, since there are only
10 fingers to use on the handset's screen.
According to a recent article on Android Community, the upcoming
mobile phone comes with a Cypress TrueTouch-digitizer to handle the
multi-touch screen, thus having the aforementioned features on board.
The company behind the touchscreen notes on its website that the
display should support up to 32 X / Y sensor inputs, something that
would certainly appeal a lot to end-users:
Multi-Touch All-Point constructed Touch projected capacitive touchscreen
controllers (CY8CTMAxxx) support Single-Touch and Multi-Touch All-Point
(Simultaneously interpreting Any number of independent points on the
screen) touchscreen applications with up to 32 X / Y sensor inputs and
Screen sizes 5.4 and Below.
They allow functions Such As Keyboards implementation, input things
multiple locations Into a GPS, playing video games on a mobile handset,
and making multiple Adjustments to sound and / or video settings on a
Considering the fact that Xperia X10 does not come with multi-touch
capabilities, though it should receive an upgrade to enable the
functionality, the inclusion of this feature on Xperia Arc makes the
handset very appealing.
Those who are not familiar with Cypress' TrueTouch technology should
know that it offers great performance levels, through all three
digitizers in the series.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc reportedly includes the
CY8CTMAxxx digitizer from the company offering:
- Multi-Touch All-Points Touchscreen Solution with
- True Touch family’s newest product Delivering unparalleled performance
- Criticality acclaimed village Many large OEM Customers
- Ability to track movement of individual fingers
- Best-in-class average Power Consumption, scan time, refresh rate and
- Provides the most flexible user-interface design solution

X10 was released with Android 1.6 that why they was no Multitouch option.
But X10 receive officially an update to Android 2.3 and was capable of 4 fingers Multitouch.

It is clear that I know what I'm talking about and don't come here to post lies.
I like Xperia Z even much better than the HTC one.
I'm not here to praise or to bash on the Xperia Z but I read comment and learn from others as well as some may learn from me.
adarshprO, 26 Feb 2013Is it a tablet or mobile phone?both, mobile and tab
TheNeighbor, 27 Feb 2013I do hope this will not cost P40k+.Im certainly not unles of course if you are gona buy at sony center whch I believe its too overpriced. I think it cost only bet. 27k. And 35 k php. Xperia v here only cost 20,500 and the buterfly htc I saw cost 30k as for the ref. Of why I would I come up with the figure
I really taught to guy this phone. But after I saw HTC One its impressed me. So far I think HTC One will be best for me. However Sony has advantage in water resistance and dust proof over HTC one that's not rally big deal when compared to HTC One its really innovative. But can't say its the best phone of the year because Samsung Galaxy S4 has to be released. These articles will prove that.
Snapdragon s4 pro/snapdragon 600 same chipset but different name. Still reviewing specs htc one vs sxz.
battery life from xda developers actual user testimonials
1)After using the phone for over a week now I can honestly say that:
- Lasts 6-8 hours of constant heavy use, as in toy-mode
- Lasts 1 full day, as in 6:00 to 22:00 of heavy use
- Lasts over 48 hours when used as a phone, as in 1-2 hours of mp3, texts, few phone calls
It could be better, battery life could always be better, but i'm pretty happy with it. It gets me through the day without worrying about saving energy - that's all I asked for.
2)I have used now my XZ now some days.
on the first day I was just and though I can see the percentage numbers go down every minute on normal use.
now after 4+ days and few charges its lot better.
I can use it 2days w/o stamina mode in moderate use(email/whatsapp/browsing/../no gaming no wlan) and so its not worse than my Note I had before.
3)A friend of mine already got his Z and we talk everyday on whatsapp. He unplugged the device before 10 in the morning at at 12 his battery percentage dropped from 100 to 99%. He said he listened to 10 songs, checked facebook, instagram and used another app a bit. Always connected to internet (I guess mostly wifi at home and 3G when on the move).
He actually send me a screenshot of his battery stats, which showed he wasn't lying (2h and something on standby, 99%). I told him to look into his screen on time and he said 30 minutes.
Now this sounds incredible, but even so he wouldn't really have a reason to lie to me. Even if the battery life turns out a little bit worse then what he said, it would be very nice.
I'm getting my own XZ tomorrow so will post here with first impressions.
" Sony Xperia Z: Battery life
In use the Xperia Z not only lasted a day but went a good way through a second. We went 31 hours and still had 20 percent of the battery remaining. We achieved this with moderate usage and the Stamina Mode switched on. "
there are loads more similar stories.
Sony Xperia Z now had 2 version ! One for the smartphone and another was for the tablet ! Its cool
A masterpiece from Sony that can beat any other phone in its comparison
Sorry but SIII is simply older phone and far behind. I would not be suprised o see SIV being better then Z but we will see.
I didnt notice any lags or software problems. Its working smooth like a breeze and sound quality is very good. Camera starting fast and is eay to use.
Its not a small phone but fits well in my hand (i dont have big hands).
Call quality very good. I didnt notice any inconvinience about speaker and mic placement.
Battery life still to be seen.
BTW black is really black... :). Its not as bright as new HTC ONE but putting it on full brightness its making everything really bright.. and its feeling a little like hurting eyes.
I read a lot (kindle) and text is super sharp. Really amazing on this.
