Sony seems to be not interested in phone size, only in specs...dommage...bezels are large, phone is so tall for 5 inch, corners are sharp...so ugly (for me)
i personaly do not care about specs as long as all recent phones are fast

Anonymous, 09 Sep 2013A non english language website once did a listening test, to see if guys like you can back up ... moreits not a radio its a smartphones are for personal use not for everyone hahhah
Nokia fans saying 1020 can do better than in the comparison posted today, I guess it can, but Z1 can do better also, look at this, how's that for an 8mp photo, look at the details and the water droplets, http://images.hardwarezone.com/gallery/thumbs/0/2013/high-resolution-article-images/sony-xperia-z1/dsc-0006.jpg
Now step it up, have you ever seen a photo like this from a Nokia phone? This is the Z1 at 20mp, the Petronas tower in Kuala Lumpur. http://images.hardwarezone.com/gallery/thumbs/0/2013/high-resolution-article-images/sony-xperia-z1/dsc-0041.jpg

[deleted post]I heard SE Asia get this end of October, Sony use to launch in India before SE Asia, expect early October availability.
AnonD-100780, 09 Sep 2013yes your absolutely right.A non english language website once did a listening test, to see if guys like you can back up their claims in real life, if you can really tell the difference. Guess the result? Yup, they could not tell. Im sorry to say that you are victims of gimmick marketing names, mostly from HTC, with their Beats and Booms and what not.
Real audiophiles dont bite marketing stuff and brand names, they can tell the real world difference, you cant.
trolls trolls hahahaha keep on comeng... it clearly shows trolls jst cnt agree thier phone are crap
1, 09 Sep 2013Well XZ1 is already smoking Lumia 1020 in camera shot comparison, so I think u sony haters bet... moreLG G2 will also smoke the 1020, and it will do so by using just a small Sony Exmore RS sensor, its like 1/3.2 inch only i think? And only 13mpix. But its enough for G2 to beat neanderthal sensor tech Nokia is using. 1/1.5 inch size doesnt matter when the technology is 2 generations behind Sony sensors. Makes sense too, a 1 meter sensor made in 1990 would not stand up to the 1 inch sensors from Sony in 2013.
Camphone kings of 2013:
3. iPhone 5S
I assume the 5S will use Exmor RS 13mpix sensor and a high quality lens (Zeiss maybe) but no OIS so G2 should be able to beat it.
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2013Depends if Sony will sell it to them anytime soon, Sony dont have unlimited production capabil... moreindeed...but with only limited phones it's expanding it's territory n true sony's exmor rs are being used by many of other device
AnonD-74483, 09 Sep 201320.7 mp camera providing mediocore performance???my ass..if you tried any of 2013 series xperi... moreI hv tried xperia z
and xperia m
but sound was not loud
and galaxy s2 camera is powerful enough to beat any sony's 8 mpx camera!
and the most fake thing was xloud!
i m an iitian therefore i dont need to be paid by anyone!
but yep sony z1 is a very nice device
AnonD-74483, 09 Sep 2013true story budDepends if Sony will sell it to them anytime soon, Sony dont have unlimited production capabilities, if they were going to sell this super sensor to others the price will be high.
Now of course the Koreans could buy sensors elsewhere but then they end up like Nokia and HTC, with mediocre quality, Sony Exmor RS is 2 generations ahead in sensor tech, and Sony always been, its no secret that iphone and S3 cams were good at their time because of the Sony sensors, and Lg G2 and S4 are good today for the same reason.
And finally, of course its not only the sensor, but also the precision grinding in the aspheric G-lens, thats also something that cant be done by just any manufacturer, and certainly not by any Korean company, they need to buy that part as well. While Sony does this in-house, in March 2014 there is already a Sony Xperia camphone better than this.
