Xperia-boy, 13 Jan 2013actually the fact is samsung catch the momentum at the time when android is growing with their... moreI agree with you on that Sony is going on the right direction, but imagine what a huge success they could have if they released this last year summer for example. This year will be hard for Sony, because others are working very hard to keep up with the latest trend. Maybe the Motorola X phone will have an octa core CPU. Then that phone will steal the attention from Sony. The same could happen with Samsung as well, they could steal the attention from Sony with an oco core CPU. Many people are fool, and when they will see octo core, they will going to buy it just because of that. I hope I was clear. I am not a fanatic person, I just analyze Sony's strategy. I don't hate them. I don't hate a phone which looks cool and it's waterproof. :)
So Sony need to be quick.
majin, 13 Jan 2013lol on you mahn...samsung came up just few years ago n sony is legend, you wont trust me brot... moreMan, I tell you to wait till it will be announced! It's too early to say how it will looks, and I am going to tell you why. All the Galaxy S phones does not look the same. The original Galaxy S does not look as the Galaxy S2. The Galaxy S3 does not look as the Galaxy S2. I am sure the Galaxy S4 will NOT look as the Galaxy S3.
O.o, 13 Jan 2013Srsly.. who would put a ph into water.. lol
People with pools, or who live near the beach, swimsuit models, people don't want to leave their phone behind when they think things could get wet, people who don't want to have to spend an extra $75 for a waterproof phone case, people who prefer a good looking phone to a neon space suit, etc......
Mobilemaster, 11 Jan 2013People likes Samsung, believe me. Sony with Ericsson had a bad reputation, and Sony now needs ... morelol on you mahn...samsung came up just few years ago n sony is legend, you wont trust me brother but my cousin's3 got wasted after sinking into water accidently and now i use s3 back case as a soup dish for my dog's soap such a pathetic design s3 had trust me its like a soap dish the bace case, i believe samshit sorry samsung got few things beter but even you know XZ is better than atleast s3 and is equal to note 2 , i also know that samsung will launch something far better than this XZ with a different soap dish back case but the same sony apple and other will do
To all who are complaining about xperia z, dude tell me the better phone right now as compare to Z ??
S4 processor is best at the moment, class leading 13mp cam and that's why LG, Samsung, Apple has made a contract with sony for cam.
5 inch of screen, water proor, back panel is also solid like gorilla glass/Dragon trail.
Lastly the design which stand alone and no one except sony is able to design a cellphone like xperia Z.
in short xperia z is the best possible phone at the moment, everything is perfect and sony won't release it in Q4. So don't think that when it will be lauched so it will be outdated.
Dont forget when u guys compared xperia z to s3 n note 2... s3 is out for more than 6 months n note 2 is for 4 months..
S3 is becoming yesteryear flagship alrdy...
KD619, 13 Jan 2013GUYS, how to know that xperia Z is provided with dragon trail glass ?? and if it is then does ... moreAccording to Sony "glass is made by any unknown manufacture which is equally hard as Gorilla Glass and Dragontail" . so wait for some brutual crash test :D
Jean.androidfan, 13 Jan 2013jellybean is the most power efficient os version ever!and as we were surprised by the battery ... moreDroid DNA, you dont know why it did so well in the battery test? Because it was a field review, tested of Verizons network, which is far more battery friendly than the network GSMArena usually test their GSM phones on. As you know, verizon is not even a GSM network but CDMA. The same skewed results showed up more recently in the Lumia 810 battery test, and GSMArena attributed it to the network quality.
Just wait for battery test of the international HTC Butterfly with the same 2020 battery, you will not be exited.
Mobilemaster, 13 Jan 2013Look man. Sony was too late! It's not fair for them to say this is going to beat the Galaxy S3... moreactually the fact is samsung catch the momentum at the time when android is growing with their Galaxy S and S2 while SE failed to catch them , and now sony is going at right direction , what u expect more at this time S4 pro is best(s4 prime is not in production i thnk). 1080p tft lcd display ( i like these display more then amoled) , 13 mp shooter which is best ( waiting for full camera review with final unit) waterproof, dustproof and many more . what u expect more. and at this time when S4 launched ,sony probably came with Snapdragon 800, much better camera and yes better display, so i thnk sony is the first in the war in 2013 and the real fight begins after S4 and G2.
jellybean is the most power efficient os version ever!and as we were surprised by the battery life of the droid dna we will be surprise by that one, it will be amazing
Can anybody name any better phone than this?!!!
Can anybody tell which phone has better external built in or better internals than this?!!!
What people of iPhone5, lumnia shit 900, sgs3 can complain to this?
I think Sony is back at the top of the tops, like it was at times of glorious nostalgic P series, times when any competitor was nothing left to do, but admire!
maybe sony is too late for realise the quad core smart phone but 1 thing tat Xperia Z have than SGS4 dont have.... if they put on water SGS4 WILL DIED and XZ STILL ALIVE. ah@hahhaahha
More cores doesnt always mean better.
8cores? 16 cores? do you need these much of processing power ?
Sony's design is undeniably good indeed, in my opinion, and i believe quite some people would agree.
The display, as well as camera are superb to be honest.
Not to forget the water&dust resistant, that really helps in quite some ways
It is the BEST smartphone CURRENTLY, the matter is, how long would Xperia Z hold its pride.
[deleted post]I dont have any opinion but i do know that Xperia J and Tipo and Miro and the new Xperia E are all mistakes, a single core Cortex A5 has nothing to do in a modern smartphone, they should have used at least single 1GHz Scorpion or dual A5, ESPECIALLY In the Xperia J, imagine the useless thing cost more than the Xperia U that has a DUALCORE CORTEX A9!
At a minimum they should stay with lower midrange, but if they need their senior/most experienced developers for higher end units then im ok with Sony leaving the lower midrange as well.
