Just to finish this if sony to become a nexus phone I believe you wil not get the ful benefit about what sony has to ofr. Bravia eng 2, walkman and others now I believe with nexus pricing it be superior in ui bt not hardware. There wil be compromising hardware.
when will be available in abu dhabi or philippines...i want this phone

From the images it looks like Xperia SP is 4.6 inch. then Sony owns both high and mid end, and Xperia L will seal the lower end of budget dual core class by being the successor of Xperia U (hopefully)
android_fun, 08 Feb 2013nexus 4 is betterBut what is good about Nexus 4? I dont see any reason to get one. And about OS updates, its void, since you need to root and use custom ROM to use USBOTG to expand storage. Nexus 4 will get working USBOTG in updates but same as Nexus 7 it will be only to support mouse and so on, not flashdrives.
And it has no LTE, very poor camera, fragile back cover, and so on. Is this in any way competing with high end Androids?
In countries where there is no play store the Nexus 4 is by far the most overpriced phone, other midrange offerings are a lot cheaper and offers card slots. Plus, we are here because we want Xperia Z, theres no way you can convince us to buy a midrange device instead, and honestly i would rather get Xperia V IF i was looking
I want to get this beauty phone in lodnon , and i want it unlocked , where can i get it and from again WHERE :D
MyraZyra, 09 Feb 2013Should I buy this Sony Xperia Z or iPhone 5 which one is better ?Personaly I prefr z, if I had to compare hardware specification only. But the main selng point of aple is not hardware but the operating system. Its hard to tel if difrent operating system.
I'm puzzled as to how Sony expect people to pre-order without having got a hands on or seen qualified reviews first. This is not an improved version of a previous phone (as the iPhone 4S was to the 4), so people don't have anything to judge it by. The spec seems great, but until one gets to try it out, in particular the camera and general speed of operation, it is all just specs. (I had an Xperia Pro and likes a lot of it, so am optimistic!) Just sad there is no dedicated camera button or wireless charging, although the shop mockup Z I saw had two pogo pin contacts on the side, so perhaps Sony are to release a nice non wireless charging dock?
just a tft capacitive touchscreen in Sony's flagship smartphone?? seems very strange. even my Sony Ericsson neo-v has LED-backlit LCD reality display. there will b so many special things in z's display. Sony should write about that.
anybody who has operated xperia z can tell me that it's live wallpaper's wave flows in motion or just those particles moves??
yhanzkieboi, 09 Feb 2013its landed in Japan..Japananese was so lucky..yep... according to this http://www.xperiablog.net/2013/02/09/xperia-z-launches-in-japan/ , viewing angle is not a problem.
Oh please. My Xperia Neo V has a better camera quality than my iPhone 4. Stop talking nonsense. Oh btw, Xperia Z will be available in Malaysia on March. Can't wait.
Z = 32gb microSD and ZL = 64gb microSD. I don't get that ! Also wish manufacturers would stop playing stupid marketing games with the 16gb only of ROM. This is meant to be a flagship, put it out with at least 64gb plus microSD up to maximum of SDXC standard. Apart from that these 2 phones look like Somy is back in the game.
