This phone is definitely a T-rex among smartphone markets. With 5\" screen out there, the resolution is stunning. It is really better than samsung AMOLED as S3 and Note the darker region colours are so dark that you can\'t even see clearly. Sony\'s bravia engine technology is very bright and stunning details can be seen. I personally think that this phone is a hit cause it has quad-core and the most out of it 2GB RAM. I uses RAM alot and I think 1GB is not enough for me. And if you are looking for camera awesome gadget, i\'m sure this is the one. With 13MP camera and 2.2MP front facing camera, you wouldn\'t ask more from it. Somemore I heard that the new Dragontail glass is more durable than gorilla glass. It can withstand 60kg of weight plus this phone is dust proof and water proof so you don\'t have to worry if your phone fell into the toilet bowl. HAHA that\'s all I wanna say for this phone. If you are looking for a cheaper one but great specs too, try Xperia T/TX
Vishnudevan, 29 Jan 2013With this kind of specifications,sony experia Z is sure to rule the market..but the question i... morethen buy the xperia v.less inches,core,price but powerful at the same time.simple
AnonD-92972, 29 Jan 2013TFT remains TFT even with bravia engine support.Yes, and you dont know what TFT is. Go and read now, enjoy a little enlightenment. I will give you a spoiler free of charge: IPS of iphone is also TFT, PLS of Samsungs Tabs is TFT, almost all LCD are TFT. Or else do you know how many connectors a full HD display would require? 1920 x 1080 x 3 (each subpixel will require its own connection), which is 6.2 million, if you dont want TFT then how would you even fit all those connectors inside a cellphone at less than 5 kilograms?

Can your phone survive after being hammer on the edge of the table? Rubbed against sand and no scratches? And can you wash it water?
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2013But viewing angles are poor in SXS.It's an advantage for. I like to have some privacy while texting. Poor veiwing angle is not a deal breaker for me.
Dragontrail glass is not tempered glass, and yes, it is 6x stronger than... soda lime glass. Where did you get the info that dragontrail is 6x stronger than gorillas?
Agreed,its screen will have much better viewing angles,deepest blacks and more vivid colors.I don't give a damn about brightness,I use my phone on lowest brightness possible most of the time anyways to avoid battery drain.

I have note 2 and it's the best amoled display, cleared and brighter than S3 but still in many movies i need the brightness at maximum to get good detail. My old xperia pro was much better at details in dark scenes. Amoled has good contrast between dark and bright but very poor contrast between dark and darker colors. Note 1 was even worse as it had no Grey tones at all. Samsung amoled displays do not display 16M colors, fake specs!

regarding the gorilla glass, you must know that Sony is using dragon trail glass which is 6 times harder than gorilla glass. both front and back of this phone is covered with this glass. even you can find the video of its durability on youtube.
As usual with SONY - you get low-quality LCD panel (extremely poor viewing angles) with non-Gorilla glass.
And protective layer applied - why? Because the glass is so weak?

AnonD-106645, 29 Jan 2013why is it tft screen.. will loose to samsung s4.. any comment guysWhat's wrong with tft? With bravia engine it shows natural colors.. For me it's better than than amoled. I compared my friend's sxs and my note2, the sxs beats my note2 even at max brightness.
