Common Sense, 26 Jan 2013viewing angles aren't that great which for me isn't much of an issue .... i mean who would wan... moreIts not plastic, but tempered glass.
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.
This phone has everything.
Activate Stamina mode, it improves battery time significantly.
The screen is just amazing.
Just had sony rep come into my store.
You have no worries about the display. it is really that great. Crisp sharp and vivid.
The best display I have seen on a mobile phone so far.
I have not been a good supporter of sony for a while. But this one really does ooze class. The development gone into it, shows sony are serious about getting back into the game.
viewing angles aren't that great which for me isn't much of an issue .... i mean who would want someone to know what are you doing on your phone and as for the glass body ... it's not glass but is some kind of plastic glass which gives the phone a premium feel to it ( if anyone has seen the drop test they would know that its completely different than the glass used on the iphone 4s) and as for the rumors that HTC M7 and Lg's G Pro have better cores ... so what? i mean 1.7 Ghz wont make that much of a difference . i mean if you look at it you might not even notice the difference b/w 1.5 and 1.7 . so it all comes down to one thing that this phone Sony is launching is actually a phone to buy ( well for me anyway ) . ( love IP57 certification )

Anonymous, 26 Jan 2013so you would rather drive a lexus or a slow ass bently over a nissan GTR? wow your a boring old manI'd choose lexus over nissan. Beauty over muscle.
Well, I have been using several sony products for many years like camera laptop tablet and tv, I was always satisfied with sony so i hope this one is gonna be a good phone, waiting for its release in local market, even though the specification might not be as good as several other brands but sony still has better quality standard than samsung or others.
Im pretty sure we all wait better battery performance and better UI from new phones. It really doesnt matter much if there is quad 1,6 or 1,7. Specs are about same in all flagships. Just think about new patent what Samsung took for eye scrolling and more! I wish to see S4 with 3000 battery to last 2 days.
If Sony Mobile = Lexus then my purple Xperia Z is a Lapis Lazuli Lexus LF-A. Premium up to 325 kmph.
Grimlock, 25 Jan 2013"sony xperia s was launched to beat S2 and dd it, xperia z s launched to beat s3 and dd i... morethe sony xperia s beat the s2?. umm no it didnt. it was a massive fail. the s2 sold alot more units than sony easily.
Samsung is not the most powerful phones... they just add cores so u can pay more..... and nothing so special about what u mentioned! and all these does exist in many brands! so Samsung isn't making anything special to WOW their costumers or any other users!
unless u have a Special Edition Samsung! Do you?

iXperia 4eva, 26 Jan 2013if Samsung will brings the S4 with 12cores or even core i7 extreme and 12GB of DDR6 RAM(LMAO).... moredude get your facts right, not only samsung has the most powerful phones they also provide everyones basic needs, such as microSD card slot, removable battery, options of 16gb, 32gb and 64gb internal memory, big batteries, best xda developer support, cheaper to repair and did i mention samsung has the most features in a phone?
How about you include those things aswell before just talking about cores and powerful cpu's?
New video when up on a HDR video test for the Sony Xperia Z. Gotta say, It looks amazing!
stop bragging about the viewing angle..it's not important for godsake!
Samsung is all about power. while Sony is all about class and elegance.
id rather drive a luxury car. than a car that has a super car engine with a shity design and looks like shit
