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???

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!
I think I found my new phone! Need water and dustproof as will be used outside under rough conditions. Great design and great hardware too. Even a cardslot.
After 8, or so, hTC - welcome Sony!

Arc S had and still has one of the Best cameras. Samsung and Apple use Sony sensors. The Xperia Z is features with HDR(High Dynamic Range) something even the S4 will not have. * cores for a phone is utter stupidity in my opinion

Why, because (I repeat) people are smart enough to think and to look for the best for themselves. Now back on topic: Xperia Z. It will be almost the same with iPhone buyers, there are things that will make people buy it and there are things that make people won't go for. It's a free world, your needs is not ours.
this phone looks like an lg optimus g.
by the way it sexy phone. like my lg phones.

The first one is the fact that you can not send any files to other brands via Bluetooth. The second problem is the battery. As I know Iphone batteries are pretty weak. The third problem is that they make ONLY one model every year. The fourth problem is that Iphones are too expensive. Fifth problem:no stereo speakers, and the list can goes on.
What is good at Iphones:Good built in quality, and Siri. :)
