Every month new phones are coming with more nice features & every one is moving from old to new one so why we going to care about water/dust proofing ? its only good for those who's going to use there phone for at least 4/5 years & that's also in case if u drop ur device in water so if u really take good care of device then i think its a unneeded features which only increases the cost of mobile.
We need future proof phone & i think S4 looks promising to me. Ya if S4 fail then i think Sony Z is my next choice for sure.
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2013Disagree. People are sick and tired of Samsung and looking for a way out, Xperia Z is that way... moreFirst I am not fan boy of any brand. I always choose what i like.
But seriously I really want to laugh on those fools who are comparing announced Sony Z with Upcoming Samsung S4 as well with old S3 & I think its a Samsung victory.
Right now Sony Z is the best smartphone specially with Design & water/dust proof feature but other brand devices are yet to come so stop comparing Z with other upcoming devices.
about interest just search over net & u will find lots of articles on S4 even if its in shadow so I am pretty sure that Samsung is going to rock with S4 coz Design or water/dust proofing is not as good in front of software features & performance.
dunno, 28 Jan 2013im considering whether to buy htc butterfly or sony z, which is good? im student and like good... moreComing from iphone you should be aware of the HTC trap, lots of iphone users who want to try android goes to HTC for some reason, and thats why a lot of them go back to iphone and say Android is lagging and unstable and crashing and hanging. Now, thats HTC for you, there are good reasons why HTC has lost so much market share, it has nothing to do with marketing or anything like that, it is because of the bad reputation they have built up, and what a very well deserved bad reputation that is.
Never again HTC for me, hope they go out of business soon, worst i ever had by a huge margin.
I hope Sony will do well to make the phone available in March. If not, the new Samsung Galaxy 4 that will debut in March, will take the shine of the Xperia Z.
Come On Sony, release this powerful beauty soon...
Getting harder to wait for it... :)

[deleted post]with the downfall of brands like nokia and iphone lately, we can say that Sony is the only brand who can stop Sammy's progress. they are trying to stop s3 and s4 with Z and ZL and they have some plans to stop note series. we will hear more from Sony at IFA.
xperia, 28 Jan 2013Very well said bro...If you look closely if xperia z will be succesful it may enough to compete with s4 or the new iphone. Just like iphone vs samsung history their will be no galaxy s3 if its not because of s2. It had gave momentum to give the consumers, us the anticipation to buy the s3. Eventhough s3 was a good phone but the market anticipation is one of the factors that samsung is sucesful today
For iPhone and Samsung fan out there, compare the technologies that Sony have built within there last couples series there is no company out there that beat SONY XPERIA series camera and live quality that we are foward in the furture. I LOVE Sony phone I have XPERIa arc s, xperia S, and Sl. I LOVE the design and the quality of it. I think XPERIA Z will really awesome, and hoping to get it this March..
xperia, 28 Jan 2013Very well said bro...Disagree. People are sick and tired of Samsung and looking for a way out, Xperia Z is that way out. Look at the daily interest, Z is still on top, even newspapers have jumped on the hype and writing articles about Xperia Z, its already a classic, its what everyone is talking about, not only the enthusiasts.
They dont need to promote this device much, its practically marketing itself. Sure lots of people will continue to buy Samsung, the momentum they have built up makes them impossible to slow down in a short time. We will see it Samsunsg slowdown as a trend in 6 months from now, and it will take a year before the trend is clear enough to be accepted by everyone. Cant expect Xperia Z alone to slow down Samsung, but it is the one that will start the job, and then its up to Sony to keep great phones coming to finish what the Z started.
Im one of those waiting for a way out, when i bought Note 2 some 4 months ago there were no alternatives, this time there is, Note 2 is no longer competing with useless crap as One X/X+ with their lagging nvidia chipsets, its like the 5th core is the only core most of the time, making Galaxy Pocket perform better in webbrowsing.
Best smart phone is 5inch display quad core slim water proof long life battery.... Xperia z good enough.. iphone 5 can't compare with Sony....

I... moreAll of Apple products are dependent upon Apple, whereas anything running Android is, pretty much, open. I'd choose the Android device - especially the Sony Xperia Z over anything else. There are no other products that can compare - especially looking at the specs. I am an Xperia S user and am very pleased with it's performance - especially the 12MP camera.
Sony Xperia Z is the best smartphones, if I have this beautiful phone. I think I don't want the others smartphone again until next 3 or 5 year. Lol
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2013I think this phone is really going 2 be nyc nd fun 2 use. Hope the price wouldn't be that expe... moreWe can all wish for lower price, but Sony does not have great finances, and dont expect that they can make enough phones for everyone the first month or two, its fair enough if they keep it at a higher price at first. Lots of people are willing to pay a premium for this phone, and Sony should let them.
If they can make $100 more in profit for each of the first 5 million Xperia Z their earnings are up by half a billion dollars, i think Sony could need those money. But, i dont think they will charge a full $100 more, thats just an example to show that big money are potentially at stake for a Sony in need of profit.
