I think this phone is a shame, nothing new, the different only speakers placement. Sony knows that Z4 does not match expectation. Thats why Sony didnt hold a big even to annouce it. Sony also does not sell it, no.. sony will not sell it only to find this product cant compete with others. IMO
LOL. How is 4k a gimmick for a 84" TV? 4k resolution in 84 inch screen would result in 52 PPI, only as much as my 40" FHD TV. Get your facts right.
AnonD-394595, 12 May 2015Wow, you Sony guys here are obsessed. Guess the real competition must be hurting your egos...h... moreYep, water proofing is important. I don't simply dunk my z1c in water without reason, I consider it as a safety feature. So,my phone can survive accidental drops in water. I can take the phone out even in rain without fear.

u just shot urself in the foot man!
but not everyone carries a camera to everywhere.a waterproof camera phone is more practical... accept it.
and yeah,u love googling!so why dont u google-1.magnetic fluid sony speaker vs crap samsung speaker.
2.longevity of triluminos vs oled/amoled.
3.memory leak of s6
4.samsung cheating using samsung instead of somy exmor sensor in s6
AnonD-394595, 12 May 2015Just read a heap of comments here....you seem obsessed about the Samsung Galaxy S6...obviously... moreYou are a Sammy fanboy of course. For your information, s5 wasnt the best phone of 2014, nor was s4 in 2013. Samsung isn't killing Sony in electronics, and more sales doesn't mean better device. Heck, Toyota sells more cars than BMW
Would you say Toyota is better? Samsung sells lots of phones not because of its technology, its because of their marketing strategy. Once a Samsung phone arrives, the newspapers are flooded with advertisements. And, everyone knows Japanese tech last longer than Korean. If you like Samsung devices, go buy them.
AnonD-394595, 12 May 2015Wow, you Sony guys here are obsessed. Guess the real competition must be hurting your egos...h... morei wasnt talking about low end tv that samsung and lg sells.i was talking about high end 4k tvs that sony sells in highest numbers.
and if u don't need 4k in 65 inch tv,then why do u need 2k in a 5 inch s6???u are really a laughing stock.
and s6 can't survive rain.a sony can.
if u wanna buy a crap tv,u can have samsung n lg.if u want the best high end tv that lasts,go fir sony.bye bye troll
Anonymous, 12 May 2015sony has sold the highest number of tvs and had its highest profit in bravia division.AND YEAH... moreWow, you Sony guys here are obsessed. Guess the real competition must be hurting your egos...hahaha...But, sorry, Sony is number 3 in world wide TV sales...1.Samusung..2.LG..3.Sony...google it as I just did and you will see the truth...What possible reason would you want a 4k TV ?? The human eye can't see anywhere near that...seems like a gimmick...and the Samsung Galaxy doesn't hang as many friends have one and they run flawlessly...Who really wants a waterproof phone, do you really want to risk putting an expensive phone underwater anyway ? Plenty of cheap HD video cams around now. And yes, you can take pics in light rain with a S6. Everything you said was just garbage, quess the truth hurts too much.
AnonD-394595, 12 May 2015Just read a heap of comments here....you seem obsessed about the Samsung Galaxy S6...obviously... moresony has sold the highest number of tvs and had its highest profit in bravia division.AND YEAH-SONY 4K TV ARE RANKED AS THE BEST IN EVERY TV REVIEW SITE.SAMSUNG ALWAYS LANGUISHES AT 4TH POSITION WITH PANASONIC AND LG AT 2ND AND 3RD.
FOR a sammy fan like u,do read about the longevity of sony tv and the 1 year oled crap of samsung.
it WAS thought that s6 was best.BUT ALL SITES now acknowledge that s6 has more thorns than it appeared on the rosy picture that samsung painted.
ufs 2.0?huh?s6 still hangs like hell.
camera?duh.SAMSUNG CAN'T EVEN AFFORD SONY SENSORS
so used its crappy isocell after sending s6 having soby sensors for review..
U CAN'T EVEN TAKE A PHOTO IN A PICNIC IF IT DRIZZLES.GETVA LIFE

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.
Ryen, 12 May 2015The Sony Waterproofing rating is only good for FRESH WATER. And only provided that all ports... moreWhat about your beloved Sammy's galaxy s5? It was also water proof. 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.
AnonD-389756, 12 May 2015As i said before, Z4 does basic function of mobile phone, make a call, texting, music, play vi... moreS6 can only read your heart rate....
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

Here is my proof, which holds tons more merit against yours

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.
AnonD-391800, 11 May 2015So, What can s6 do that a mediocre midranger cant?
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.
