Of course its the best phone. Its been proven over the years ever since the Samsung Galaxy range started. Samsung has ruined Sony in nearly all electrical items by providing better products, more advanced technology and simply what the people want. Thats why Sony has sold off its laptop and TV businesses. Probably will sell off its phone and tablet business soon as Sony is just unable to keep up or compete anymore. Its obvious that you are a die hard Sony fan, but you need to face the real truths.

There are tons of articles with water damage issue. Heck, some phones even died. And this was in fresh water. I have used my z1 compact in pools and nothing happened to it. And there are less water damage issues with xperia phones, and these are caused due to carelessness. People don't check if the flaps are secured, damage the phone, and blame Sony.

That any phone with a back camera and flash can do. Debit card? A huge copying of Apple pay. Finger print scanner? A gimmick. But, a low end phone has a microSD card slot, which your beloved s6 doesn't have. Remote control? No thanks, I'll stick to my TV's remote control.

There are tons of midrangers with IR port, but most people find FM radio a more useable tech feature on a phone....
Paying option is available on any NFC capable phone via Google Wallet or dozen of other apps, fingerprint scanner is just tech to improve security, every lowend or midrange phone has at least 3 security options including pin, pattern and face recognition...
So.....S6 has an extra function over lowend and midrange phones to monitor your heart rate, and give you one extra security option to work on some apps, hardly a substitution for no SD card expandability, no fm radio practicality, no stereo sound, or no waterproofing and underwater photo shooting capability....
And it costs a fortune for that extra options, one called a gimmick, other just an addon security option..
On the other hand you cannot find waterprooofing and underwater photo shooting capability, nor stereospeakers on a phone, on any lowend or midrange phones other than xperias and stereo on a couple of htcs
Much smarter and practical tech features than a heart rate monitor or IR blaster

since this is z4 post,u are ignorantly talking about z3 why???
I have been using Sony phones for over half a decade now. I must say the build quali Sony Ericsson and now Sony provides is unmatched. I used to take photos in mild rain using my Xperia Ray and it didn't even bother me at all. I dropped my Xperia S from a staircase and it went bouncing all the way down , but it escaped wit just few minor scratches. But I saw my friends Galaxy S4 drop from his pants pocket and shattered it's display. This is some daily life moments anyone can face. Manufacturers should make a phone that's ready to take on at least couple of 4 feet falls. And Sony does it well. What good is a curved display phone if it can't handle a single fall? Z4 may not have a heart rate monitor but am sure you certainly won't have a heart attack if you drop it or miss handle it.

I also know sth that S6 cant do but even... moreThe Sony Waterproofing rating is only good for FRESH WATER. And only provided that all ports and covers are firmly closed and sealed.
If you forget to close these these ports and covers before submersing, the phone will fail and be permanently damaged as Sony will NOT warranty it.
Most swimming pools are chlorine or salt-water based and NOT FRESH WATER. So,do NOT for use in swimming pools.
The Sony small print clearly says that the phones should NOT be used in any swimming pools or the sea/beach. These phones ARE failing when used in chlorinated and salt water.
Sony is NOT replacing all of the phones which are damaged due to water.
So, be very aware before these biased blind Sony fanboys promote and lie about Sony phones. One person called "TannHauser" is the biggest liar and con artist here. He was called "Darkraver", but was banned by thea dministrators.

S Astar1, 12 May 2015I can't find the differences between Z4 and Z3. sony should at least add IR blaster.They are working on it since 2013, Sony still cant provide it. Sony is also try to apply fingerprint scanner, they cant. Sony will adds fingerprint scanner only if google or qualcomm provide the softwarw. Their technology is far behind bcz their CEO cut RD cost.

I also know sth that S6 cant do but even... moreAs i said before, Z4 does basic function of mobile phone, make a call, texting, music, play video, gaming, web browsing. Thats it. Even low end phones can do it all. Z4 only does it better. Low end phones play music good z4 does it excellent. The difference btween sony low end phone n Sony high end phones is only specs. Samsung added more function to their high end phone. Remote TV, replacing debit card, monitors heartrate, read your fingrrprint. So its not only about specs.

AnonD-94604, 11 May 2015S6.. no ofcourse not. Its an Ace or Mega..there is a difference between a slim waterproof phone(sony phone) and a BRICK WATERPROOF PHONE(ur waterproof cased phone).
again, do read about HIGH RES AUDIO,DSEE,S FORCE FRONT SURROUND,LDAC CODEC BEFORE TALKING ABOUT SONY.I SEE U ARE COMPLETELY IGNORANT-completely.
and u know what-that s6 has a poor camera-as they don't sell it with a sony sensor. they sent it for reviews with sony sensor but sell it with shit isocell of samsung.good luck with ur third class camera
AnonD-391800, 11 May 2015...As opposed to??? S6.. no ofcourse not. Its an Ace or Mega..
