I was always a Sony fan, and when I saw the Xperia Z, I said "Wow! The phone I've always wanted!". But after a little search I found the HTC Droid DNA (http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_droid_dna-5113.php). It has almost the same features with the Xperia Z and it costs less (by 200 euros!!) from the Xperia Z's estimated cost. Then I think, does Xperia Z worth the extra 200 euros, just for the water resistance and the 13MP camera?
what a phone. i think this year goes for sony. what a coming back this phone can beat any smart phone in market.

They don't hve gorilla glass you say? Like in the fragile s3 and ip4s? Hmmm. My sxs have suffured a few drops in the edge of my wooden foot stool and no cracks. My xperia active have suffered many drops aswell in concrete. Still no cracks. I'm a fieldman and a little clumsy. I haven't found any problems with my phones.
Everything is Perfect!
Design & Features are so awesome according to my needs just onething should be needed that is " SMART SHOOT & PHOTO Synthase" Apps like Nokia Lumia 920/820.
its a awesome smart phone. I like its gorgeous look but I like white color.
I see pictures of Xperia Z for 1-2 hours daily.
Really Xperia Z has Great Design I like it a lot.
I love it so much woooooooahhh
From the beginning of the time I ever used only and only "Nokia" but Now I changed my mind to move from Nokia to Sony.
Especially Xperia Z Impressed me. I like it a lot. It is so awesome have great feature pack with great design I'm dieing for it.

They look beauti... morei didn't work with Sony phones but whoever has worked with them calls them astonishing. regarding the crash you mentioned, one of my friends works for a mobile repairing center and he said the most crashed phone is Samsung and he mentioned nothing about Sony. maybe im wrong.

"The screen isn't gorilla glass" ->DragonTrail
And since when is "half the phones" 1 device? As far as i know, SE/Sony promised update to ICS all of the 2011 devices and almost all(except Xperia Play) actually got ICS.
As a former Sony Fan boy, I honestly recommend that nobody should buy a Sony. They look beautiful and unique, no doubt but they are the most unreliable devices and have terrible service.
In my personal experiences, all my Sony devices crashed one month after the warranty expired, and I wasn't the only one, there were 5 people in the same service centre who had a crashed Xperia sola, one month after its release. I recommend that people visit a Sony service centre before they purchase a Sony phone.
The other problems with Sony phones are that their battery life is just terrible, even this phone with its massive battery won't be able to keep up with a similar samsung.
The screen of Sony which is manufactured by themselves and isn't gorilla glass is another problem. It just isn't as sensitive to touch especially in games, and I noticed this when I tried to play Fruit ninja, its just terrible.
And finally, Sony don't care to update the android OS for their older phones, half the phones that were promised ICS never got it.
So, as long as you know that you are spending all the money for a phone that will last only one year, you're fine. For others who prefer a more rational choice, avoid Sony.
