[deleted post]Thin bezels is a tech nerd hype....
There is only ona advantage, but dozen disadvantages to that design language
There is a merit to bezel thickness usability, and even lg is on an edge there, not to mention samsung edge design...
Z3/Z3c for example, has optimal and best bezel thickness to usability ratio, putting stereo speakers on them and yet maintaining 70.6% screen body ratio
If bezel thickness was such a merit to user interest, I believe iphone sales would be much lower than they are, and lg g3/g4 sales would skyrocket....which is not the case
Hey where r u sony man 7 th june is comming !!!!
But till yet no video teaser.....
I am very disappoint with z4. There's no change In phone specifications it is same like last flagships. But price is too high
Have my z1c for a year now, 2300 mah charging to 50% in 30-40 min, full charge in 1-1.5h, still felling no batterylife capacity drop whatsoever
Heavy use all through the day, lasts till tommorow easily

Nahhh...removeable battery will ruin the phones sexy look...you want a removable battery, go buy another brand fullstop.

a phone with removable battery is still a better choice you can buy an extra battery and swap it anytime its even faster than to wait for 3-4 hours charging time on z3.
Other phones with 'slim bezels' tend to achieve this by putting a single speaker on either the back or side of the phone. Sony has dual speakers which are front facing, like the HTC M8 / M9, which also has a larger than usual bezel.
This gives far better sound, since the speaker is not firing away from you or into your hand / desk. For a speakerb there is really no substitute for having a speaker facing you...or at least some what facing you.
Good sound is more important to me than a 2mm smaller bezel.

No one knows about the battery life of Xperia Z4, so time will tell.
How can you complain about longer battery life? It boggles the mind when some of the most frequent criticism of previously models have been that the battery was too low capacity. Jeez.
W0wwbagg, 20 May 2015In superior auto mode, camera is fixed at 8MP 16:9. In manual mode, you can set it up to 20.7M... moreThanks for the info, what is the best setting in manual mode?
should we turn off Scene mode, and turn on HDR?
or which scene is the best in manual mode? is backlight correction with hdr good enough?

it would be excellent phone if it comes with dual SIM and 4000amp battery, metal slim body and hard key for home, back button.

You say s6 has slimmer bezels than z4, but actually, z4 has slimmer bezels. S6 has a screen to body ratio of 70.7% while z4 has screen to body ratio of 70.9%. Have you seen the Sharp aquous crystal x? Its bezels are WAY too thin.
I agree that slim bezel design is good. For example LG G4 and S6 edge look good. Sony has too much bezel and it makes the phone look somewhat odd. Slimmer bezels make the phone look smart and premium which attracts customers who want a good looking phone. Marketing and software features on the UI are also very important for sales. Btw sony has scheduled an event on 26 may so we could get a global and better Z4 and z4 compact as they annouced a date just like samsung and htc did. Fingers crossed..

That one also looked like shit, just like this Sharp phone. You were the one who said Sony sales are bad, but what about this Sharp phone? Sharp is available only in Japan. I hate bezel less designs, even if it was a Sony phone. Xperia Z4's bezels are slim enough. This phone is the most ugliest phone I have ever seen in my life.
W0wwbagg, 20 May 2015It looks like a pile of bird poop. Seriously, bezel less design? You need some bezel to put yo... moreIts all about new technology, thats what I like...time will tell if its good or not...e.g. bezel less screen, Direct wave receiver instead of a earpiece for phone calls, front camera on bottom, screen is an S-Purel LCD (sharp developed tech)....Anyway, I don't hold any part of the screen when viewing horizontally, so for me Bezel less is a good feature ...of course, if this was Sony, you would be raving about it....
