dude,, dont underestimate the screen as TFT, its Bravia Engine along with the TFT makes displays compared to Retina display,...
Samsung fans need to seriously go post on a Samsung blog! Had the S2, not bad, also the S3 which was a plasticky bit of pants! Cracked without dropping it, never dropped a phone yet, and had to pay £134 for a repair I was not responsible for! Sold it straight after and will never touch another Samsung product. Poor Quality Control, Build Quality and Customer Support (refer you to a Service Centre which is not truly Samsung to avoid taking responsibility). Sony is solid all the way and the Xperia Z, in terms of the specs, build quality, style etc is superb!
The screen is superb. though IPS is known for great viewing angles still xperia Z's TFT has a decent viewing angle and yet better sharpness and colors than of the IPS. all in all the screen of xperia z in my personal opinion is the Best.

SG4 hasnt even been announced and your allready sayi... moredude Xperia Z is not camed to finish Galaxy S IV.i saw somewhere it is coming in quarter 2 with cortex A15 quad core,3gb ram and many more.that thing will finish the S IV.wait for it..
Well well so it is again, best products are not all about being number 1 in the market share, but also getting their parts and technology in all other high end devices. The i phone is rumoured to be using a Sony 13mp Camera in their latest handset, imagine Apple has to resort to the best electronics company, Sony, for the technology to compete with the other copy cat company. Well done Apple you truly know who is best...... But Sony is and will always be a force to be reckoned with......
TFT Capacitive touch?are u serious.....Such a high end mobile and outdated screen...SONY is such a loser...

Great work by Sony but let us see what the galaxy s4 brings
I'll defenitley buy one! I had x10 mini for a year, a xperia mini st15i I'm using it right now as second phone...it's great but outdated somehow...still girls love it!
This reminds me of Nokia Scirocco... somehow a premium feel and looks! Slim, elegant... SONY but without dubious shape and nothing odd about it! LOVE IT!

iphone4 is weak, it used gorilla glass, and what is gorilla glass known for? Its known to break in a shattering way, which is why Corning had to recall all products from the market when they tried to use gorilla glass in protective eyewear for industrial workers, it does not resist sudden impacts well and it could result in a shower of broken glass traveling at high speeds towards the eye. Gorilla is great for scratch resistance and light weight, thats all. It is not strong compared to for example cockpit windshields, so obviously its not the worlds strongest glass.
iphone4s, Nexus 4, both use the number 4 and both are plagued by the low quality of gorilla glass.
