Waters, 01 Feb 2013Toss up between this or the s4 for me
Decisions decisions........ Uk price for Xperia z appr... moreS4 will be more ugly, have a crappy screen most likely and feature a exynos to do well in synthetic benchmarks which is all the reveiwers and sammy care about.
In the real (app) world, the exynos will be as lousy supported by sammy as it's predecessors.
The qualcomm quad krait and it's Adreno 320 companion are sure winners. Very popular in many phones, great support in apps to come.

Thanks Sony for revealing this piece of art

Yes we do click it many times and yes it does matter how it is designed/shaped. What they forgot is that it also matters where it is placed - in an ergonomical sense - not just to make it look cool.
AnonD-13466, 01 Feb 2013It scores an average rating of 9.3 but still not listed on the rankings. even the latest BB Z1... moreThe Devices that are released & Available in the Market only will get listed in the rankings by rate
& latest BB Z10 is now available, so it's in the list...
so When Xperia Z released, it will be on top, no worries

Anonymous, 01 Feb 2013reality display is not a screen technology...for mobile wold sake. It is an algorithm.An algorithm is technology. Its software. Anyway you are wrong, its not just software algorithms, when Xperia Arc came out a Sony rep said the following to explain reality display:
"The combination of all those things: the physical screen, the manufacturing of the screen, the no air gap, the colour filter, the mobile BRAVIA engine, together should give the consumer something that is a really good representation of real life."
"And that’s where the name Reality Display comes from."
AnonD-88713, 01 Feb 2013what i want to know is why such a tough mobile with a dragontrail needs a screen pretector ?!!! Uhm for me, to preserve the market value of the product so that if I want to sel my phone it will be a good price. Eventhough they say its scratch resistant just in case.
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2013Why would Sony use IPS LCD or Super AMOLED display when they have their own Reality Display wh... morereality display is not a screen technology...for mobile wold sake. It is an algorithm.

to see what perfect ergonomics design engineering and button placement is.
So far this is the most perfectly designed phone . this one got my attention it has a soul melting design and concept. i love designs and concepts of sony . i hate the design and concept of all samsung products but i love their hardware. this should be given the best phone of the year award in terms of design quality and engineering.
AnonD-33318, 31 Jan 2013I disagree with you that people buy Samsung phone b/c they can't afford Sony. That's the very ... moreMy answer to your statement about Sony not being that expensive is because the previous flagships only have dual core chipsets inside. This is the first quad core of Sony so this is a totally different story. This is going to be far expensive than the S3 and maybe on par or a little expensive than the Note 2. Well, Note 2 is good, but it is too big compared to the Xperia Z. Gonna have my One X+ changed to the Z! I like it! ;)
Anonymous, 31 Jan 2013Several reviewers has given credit for the good button placement on the Z. Lets try first befo... moreThis isn't the first phone to feature low side buttons.
Most people try to a hold a phone in one hand - usually the right hand, as the majority of all people are right handed - and using ones thumb on the screen and the side buttons.
When you then have to bend your thumb very low - and also put your grip very low - to reach the buttons. Not only is it bad ergonomics but it increases the chance of you loosing grip and having it fall to the ground. The fact that it's surface is very smooth does not help.
So that's what happens when quality control fails.
So, what if you're left handed? Then you can use your middle and/or index finger to lock/unlock and change volume. Not nearly as comfterble as using the flexible thumb of course. However, you would also have those fingers always touching those buttons and could cause inadvertent clicks.
So basically, this placement of buttons is unfortunate regardless of which hand you use.
Other than that, the phone looks nice.
Btw, lame personal attacks aren't for adults.
