To ALL: Some Sony phones have distinct quality that even outperformed some other brand phones. Then Sony release a HIGH CLASS phone summing up the distinct qualities of the Sony previous phones. All I can see is Sony knows how to use their technology so wise and the result is a GREAT phone :-)
cyber, 10 Jan 2013arc camera is so weak,it's no NEAR to that one in gs3,my old n85 make better pictures than arc... morei'm sorry your statement comes nowhere :-) sony is notable making build high class and quality gadgets :-)
Build and quality wise and even hardware wise...Sony is WISE...Sony Z is a phenomenal phone :-)
Mobilemaster, 10 Jan 2013Who said the Galaxy S4 will not have HDR? I tell you to wait till it will be announced, and yo... moreLOL I wonder your Sammy did not release a phone early or as the same day in the CES 2013...hmmm Fishy...if HDR in the SG4 as you have said...then automatically they copied to Sony Z hahaha bad :-D
kuksa-, 10 Jan 2013Sony said that these phones will compete with sgs3 and iphone 5. so I think they will release ... moreKuksa not really Sony Xperia Z will be around long. Its quality is superior and hardware wise. 99.9% phone for everyone :-) agree?
8 cores for what, do you want video rendering on the phone ? Are you going to install auto-cad in the phone? ...
Sit down and relax you samsunger guy.
Why do not focus on power consumption and optimization than use over-kill hardware components on the phone?
About Xperia Z, definitely the specs are good and up to date ready for 2013, but this is not the best shoot since almost all new high end phone will have such performance.
We are talking about the beauty and optimization of the UI, about design of the phone, about the quality of the build materials, is not that important for you ? ;)
DyLaN2, 10 Jan 2013If you are right, then it will show how weak Samsung is.. First, it copies technology from a... moreWell, if not Samsung will be the first to copy them, than it will be another company. Somebody will copy them for sure, because every new feature is copied someday. Motorola was the first to make a mobile phone, and others copied them. :P
Mobilemaster, 10 Jan 2013I think yes, they will announce another phone to compete with the Galaxy S4. I suppose that So... moreYou're right. They're coming slow but strong ! I think that 'later' phones will distroy all. not saying that Z isn't cos' it is ! :)but they will blow up.. I know.
Mobilemaster, 10 Jan 2013I think yes, they will announce another phone to compete with the Galaxy S4. I suppose that So... moreObviously bcz Ericsson has NO MORE shares in the company.
In other words, Sony BOUGHT Ericsson's share.
Mobilemaster, 10 Jan 2013Who said the Galaxy S4 will not have HDR? I tell you to wait till it will be announced, and yo... moreIf you are right, then it will show how weak Samsung is..
First, it copies technology from apple , and now they are jealous of Sony being creative and innovative so they wonna copy its technologies too.. WoW! Respect Samsung.. Lol
kuksa-, 10 Jan 2013Sony said that these phones will compete with sgs3 and iphone 5. so I think they will release ... moreI think yes, they will announce another phone to compete with the Galaxy S4. I suppose that Sony will have a stronger CPU(maybe 1.7 GHZ Quad Core), the same amount of Ram as this, a 16 MP camera, 32 GB of internal storage, and a much better battery than this have.
I must admit that Sony is working hard. What I don't understand guys is why they removed the cool SE logo???
cyber, 10 Jan 2013arc camera is so weak,it's no NEAR to that one in gs3,my old n85 make better pictures than arc... moreWhat world are you living in?
Too bad for you, I OWN xperia arc (and I'm sending this msg from it btw).. And allow me to say that everything you mentioned in your comment is.. FALSE!
About the camera, my brother has galaxy s2 and guess what, its RUBBISH compared to my ARC ( pictures can be attached to support my words)
As for the screen, supported by BE, the Arc's HD screen is quite impresive.. Check video s on youtube if u don't believe...
The WIFI is pretty much Normal
Qs for the build quality, my phone has significantly less crackd than my brother'd GS2 although my phone is older..
So honestly, its obvious that you are a Samsung guy who considers all other brands shit without taking alook at them ..
Shamz, 10 Jan 2013Obviously you have'nt used many Sony phones. Arc S had and still has one of the Best cameras. ... moreWho said the Galaxy S4 will not have HDR? I tell you to wait till it will be announced, and you will be shocked. Samsung is going to shock the whole world with their awesome GS4.
gee, 10 Jan 2013No phone still compares to Nokia 820 or the 920, all android phones still lag a bit despite al... moreHi!
The Nokia Lumia 920 has some great features, but I would not say that is the world's best smart phone. WP8 is a new OS, people are used to buy Android phones, because Android is more famous. A lot of people hates the UI of WP8(me too). If you ask me, Nokia should make Android or Meego phones to take the crown back from Samsung.
Rkv, 10 Jan 2013Pls Pls if you are a fan of samsung's phone. Dude Sony made the Camera SENSOR for SG S3 n SG... moreYou are wrong dude. Samsung also makes camera sensors, and the 13 MP sensor on the GS 4 is a Samsung one for sure.
Sony said that these phones will compete with sgs3 and iphone 5. so I think they will release another phone later this year to compete with s4? U agree?
Mobilemaster, 10 Jan 2013Look. Iphone is weak in my point of view. People are buying them because of the branding. When... moreDon't agree with you on much but do in regard to iPhone but for diffrent reasons, the user interface is as boring as watching paint dry. Then again, after poor experience with Samsung customer service and support in regard to the SGS3, hairline cracks by the usb charger connector, it could have 10 cores and wake you up brew the coffee will not consider it on a point of principle. Can't stand Nature/Touchwiz UI either! Defo buying the Xperia Z!
