Akshay773, 19 Feb 2013Wait for Galaxy s4 guys B-)There is no reason son to wait to any crappy plastic samsung, wait for what ? Don't make me laugh.
If you want to wait to something bigger, then you are looking for Sony C680x, will be definitely the next king.
For the moment the best smartphone ever made is out there, and its called Xperia Z !
NOTE: One more thing ! Congratulations for the Xperia Z to be posted already on the TOP ranking list with the killer and highest voting results by far, 9.3 !
Great phone, but too expensive. For sure this phone can outsell the iphone 5 & S3 if they can retail Xperia Z at $300-400.
in saudi itll be available in first week of march for 2499sr
Ed007, 19 Feb 2013Lol,not to that extent.
But the thing that puzzles me is that sony is the lone defaulter here... moreFor 10 months i used Xperia Pro which had a smaller display with more narrow viewing angles and never was it a problem. Watching content more than one person at the time was good. Look at the side by side of the Z and the Note 2, which one is more visible from an extreme angle here? Is it easy to read the time on the Note 2? http://s582.beta.photobucket.com/user/netbookc/media/XB1/vGS3_3.jpg.html
Then go even more extreme, which one is easy to read now? The Note 2 display is barely visible at all but you can still count 11 home screen icons on the Z. http://s582.beta.photobucket.com/user/netbookc/media/XB1/vGS3_4.jpg.html
Pajry, 19 Feb 2013My point is that viewing angles are presented like some breath taking freature you can't live ... moreThank god someone else thinks 'good viewing angles' aren't necessary. Besides, who wants someone looking at every word you're typing when you're on the subway?
I've still never been in a situation where I thought better viewing angles would have made my phone any better than it already is.
haters are at work, trying to lower the grades of this phone.
Pajry, 19 Feb 2013My point is that viewing angles are presented like some breath taking freature you can't live ... moreLol,not to that extent.
But the thing that puzzles me is that sony is the lone defaulter here and they refuse to change.
They've been using these tft screens for quite sometime which not only have narrow viewing angles but low contrast and washed out colours as well when compared to modern LCD tech like IPS,PLS etc.the bravia engine does come to the rescue but only when viewing multimedia from the native apps.for the rest of the time it's a just a plain tft screen.
So it's more than viewing angles u see.
They should switch to a better grade of LCD panels imo.
Ed007, 19 Feb 2013Ever wondered why this is an issue with xperia only displays even if it's an insignificant one... moreMy point is that viewing angles are presented like some breath taking freature you can't live without, like "OMG it have bad viewing angles?! Don't touch that, it can kill you"..
Yes, it's maybe little more confortable have it, but you don't need it most of the time.
Xperia Z have a very superior screen but the viewing angle. Its a small problem.
Xperia Z has the highest rating by users in GSMArena. Good work Sony, congratulation. Now let the next Xperia beat Galaxy S4 and the next generation of iPhone.
Best Rated Phone EVER!!! 9.309!! AWESOME!! hahahaha!
finally.. congrates sony
Pajry, 19 Feb 2013Why the hell should i need "better" viewing angles?! It's mobile device, not TV with... moreEver wondered why this is an issue with xperia only displays even if it's an insignificant one for some ?Does sony,of all display manufacturers needs it's fans to defend the display panel on it's smartphones like that ?
Anybody if given a choice will take a screen with gud viewing angles and there will certainly be lot of choices when other 5" FHDs do arrive.
Besides it doesn't hurt to have gud viewing angles when u have ur phone kept on the desk,docking station or in ur car.
Nokia is best, 19 Feb 2013okay man check this
... moreThe review doesn't mention anything in detail.just says in layman terms that the display apart from the issues with viewing angles is gud.
Besides i'd give a more detailed review of gsmarena 10 x times more importance than cnet's.
I am not able to post the link but u can check the colour caliberation and contrast ratio comparision of the z and butterfly @ ph*nearena.

JWill97, 19 Feb 2013this phone ia far too overrated. u're all not gonna praise this phone that high if it isnt com... moreDude are you joking??Xperia Z can play Playststion games.Its hardware and build quality is WAY BETTER than butterfly.Plus,it is dust,water as well as shatterproof.You can easily connect it to tv.
