[deleted post]stfu the iphone sold 50 million, there is no way that LG sold that much, the nexus 4 only sold 500,000 units and that was it's most popular phone. Get your statistics right before you speak.

Earlier last year i was buying a new TV, and as most people here (SE Asia) i went straight to the Sony stand, but while waiting for them to get my new Sony TV ready to pay i looked at Samsungs. No only did they look the ame as Sony but they were also the same price. Later in the same year, 2012 still, i was in the same store and noticed Samsungs had changed, i said "wow, Samsungs have a new design, not looking like cheap copies anymore. But what did the look like? Smaller bezels, good, but their stands, what was that? Lets just say the designs were from a chicken breeder, not from a TV manufacturer. Terrible, really. Samsung just aint good when they do not copy others. So how can Samsung make great smartphones if they can not copy others? SGS3 was good because it had good specs, but what about now, do we need moe performance, for now? Maybe performance is saturated for a while, then what can Samsung offer over Sony? Higher resolution? NO. Pentile? Undesireable. AMOLED colors? its too much and its not better than BRAVIA technology give us already. That leaves design, and Samsung have no chance to better Sony, and if they copy then people may say OH NO THEY COPIED AGAIN. And can they copy the water and dustproof? I dont think they will try. Samsung may come out short this time.

Xperiaman, 15 Jan 2013Common Sony Just Starch Resistance Is Not Enough. We Need GorillaglassHey buddy, good news! Sony actually manufactured this phone and have put on something that is even better than what you're looking for. Dragon Trail Glass is the name of the glass on the phone's surroundings which is 6x more durable than Gorilla Glass. Research on it! ;)
Yes it's so expensive! It's smarter to wait a few month for the price to go down. If I can wait that is..
IRebic, 16 Jan 2013What for do you need more than 48GB of memory???Haha, what is 48GB? But do not worry, Xperia Z will support 128GB miro SD cards.
We dont know yet if Samsung Exynos 5 will use the 8 core option, or if it will be switching the A7 cores off when the A15 cores are active. It requires extra power to keep the A7 cores active while the A15 cores are working but Yes, acording to ARMs whitepaper the chipset manufacturers will have the option to make big.LITTLE an 8 core chip by a simple firmware flash. Still, its most likely that they will keep it a quad.
On the other hand, we may be reaching a performane saturation. Krait cores are 3 issue, which makes them somewhat compareable to A15, the question may be if Krait is already enough, will people feel the need to go for A15, and more so, will they feel the need to go for A15 when the A7 cores will be doing 95% of the work? The quad kraits of Xperia Z may be enough, and then the Galaxy S4 suddenly find itself competing with Sony on design, a battle Samsung have no chance of winning. Sure the S4 will sell more than Xperia Z, but thats because of the enormous momentum Samsung has built up, while Sony is still gaining momentum. Maybe, just maybe, Sony can gather momentum faster than i think they can but i doubt it, but i KNOW Sony will slow down Samsungs momentum quite a bit, even if its not enough for Sony to get near to Samsungs sales numbers in 2013. By 2016 Android will have choked iOS, and Sony will have gained more momentum, so maybe by 2017 Samsung will be the one trying to catch up to sony, but ONLY if sony play their cards right in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
And i think they will. Why? Because Samsung has just now, in the last year, 2012, broke free from copying iphone, we cant deny that the SGS2 was a direct iphone copy, both in exterior and in UI. Sony has never even been close to copying anyone, rather the oposite. Look at Samsungs TVs up untill 2H 2012, are they not shameless Sony copies??? Yes tey are, indeed. I will make another post to continue this.
I would very much like smartphones ... But the price is high, selling cheaper smartphones Sony please :)
Grimlock, 16 Jan 2013Actually, Sony said themselves that they were targeting the S3 and Note 2. Sony has made many,... moreI somehow agree with you on that buddy! If only Sony released Xperia S, Ion, Acro S, T, Tx or V in time or just a little behind the Galaxy S2, HTC Sensation and XE, Optimus 2X and bunch of other dual cores, they might have taken the crown by then! Sony was just too late back then in releasing dual core phones but now they started the year with a bang! Even HTC did! Both of the companies are the first to release 1080p screen phones, not even Samsung thought of that or at least have done that? Maybe in a couple of months though? Sony, LG and HTC have the best designs out there that even Samsung can't argue with but, Samsung did a great job in the era of the S2 so now even the not-so-pretty S3 is very successful! Thanks to the one that set the benchmark which is the S2. In 2013 Xperia Z opened the door alongside HTC but Sony made the loudest noise compared to the Butterfly and everyone is envious of the Z and ZL's beauties. I somehow feel the pressure on Samsung's part that is why they decided to drop the bomb, an answer to what Qualcomm and Nvidia have released,their Exynos 5 which has 8 cores. I think Samsung told themselves that if we can't pull off the design of the S4 then let's give them an 8 killer cores! haha! Now that's a new rise of battlefield that Sony, HTC, LG and the rest would have to keep up with Samsung! In other words, battle for flagship phones this 2013 is bloody hell! Anything can be possible! People think too inhuman! Now let's see on the other hand what innovations are there opening up for Windows platform, the new look of BB10 and the overrated iOS platform! Who would win? At least, Sony did a great start! ;)
anonymous ultra HD, 16 Jan 2013great news: xperia z tablet coming. :dyeah, and that's just the beginning of great news.
Z family will open the success path for the other beasts that are going to be introduced in IFA.
i was just hopping that the xperia Z won't be built-in battry because i had a bad experience with Xperia Acro S because of the same, and i guess the sony people should look at this ponit, for the phone to be water profe is a good option but for the battry to built-in it's not really good thing specially if the unit hang as any electronic divice you don't have much choices to make it start working again but to send it to the service center to fix it for you, and God knows how long it'll take untill they return it back to you!!
mhd bashar alhallaq, 16 Jan 2013No doubt it's a great phone ,and sony is one of the best and really the one who can compete th... moreNo one can compete with iphone because iphone is not really a smartphone..The iphone is very limited and restricted so how is that SMART???
Going to try this beast especially if the mp3 part has headphone surround option and i can physically handle in daily real life use its size.
i really hope 32GB is not the max memory it can support, seriously i will be so angry if thats the case, i mean its 2013 for goodness sake, not 2010
