SIR BONZI, 20 Apr 2015Infact,Sony phones are good but Sony must do well to improve on the specs,I used Xperia U,Ion,... moreYes the camera will be better as compared to z2 and z3.and I think Sony did it in the right way by not upgrading the phone much with more features.because the gs6 was released most of the people must have buied a s6 and the would have thought of buying this phone as WASTE OF MONEY even it would have been better than s6 edege.So what I feel is that Sony must have kept their best innovation prepared for the z5.
That looks like Xperia Z3V
I hope it is for Japan only. Maybe the international version comes with the different design.
This suggests that Sony are preparing their Z5 series for release soon, hence why they've had such a low key release for the Z4. Z5 expected sometime later this year with the snapdragon 820 and apparently a new design is expected although I love the current design on my Z5 Ultra.
I guess, Sony is really going to withdraw themselves from smartphone market. A same thing happened about a decade ago, when Sony Clie only launched their latest product in Japan before they terminated their line.
Geek Boy, 19 Dec 2014I think the bezels are necessary for resting hands while using phone at landscape mode.
Actu... moreusing bezels for handrest in landscape?
huh, you will cover the speakers then,
you never thought about it did ya?
It is better sony should not launch Z4..instead they should have designed better marketing strategy to work out on Z3 sales and M4 sales.. The team for Sony phones has gone nuts. Hope I could have helped in designing marketing strategies and product innovation for Sony
This phone only for Japan Market.
No Compact Version.
No International Release Date.
Sony make something unpredictable strategy.
Sony looks like want to bring the older Xperia Z series to better position.
Xperia Z3 looks more Valuable than Galaxy S6.
Xperia Z3 Compact looks more Valuable than Iphone 6 & Galaxy Alpha.
Xperia Z1 Compact looks more Valuable than Galaxy S5 mini & Galaxy A5.
and some more...
so no one will buy it unless they need a dust and waterproof device.
If you are planning on getting this, let me assure you it will heat up so much u can fry an egg on it. because it has a greater CPU than the Z3 but a weaker battery. i am sure this is because sony made it thinner. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!
Hate to say it, but it looks like i'll be getting an S6.
Infact,Sony phones are good but Sony must do well to improve on the specs,I used Xperia U,Ion,T,V,Z and currently Z2,now the quality of the camera too is an issue as compared to Samsung phones,a Samsung phone with 5mp can match a Sony phone with 12mp,Sony,we love ur phones but you must listen to customers if u are to be a major player in the industry, thanks
Another disappointment from Sony... Only changes include smaller battery, open usb port and Snapdragon 810...what the hell is wrong with Sony?? I just can't figure out what the hell is going on with their mobile division, no wonder they are going bankrupt
Anonymous, 19 Apr 2015Sony is always disappoints their costumers for the poor support and slow update.
I wonder... moreslow updates?
Sony is one of the fastest to bring a stable update.
Samsung on the other hand is faster, but less stabile...
LG and Samsung are spend more on marketing than Sony, and yes advertisement sell...
Official specs released:
Glad that we have Google Translate :)
6.9 mm, FHD, 3Gb RAM, 32Gb internal storage memory, up to 128Gb MicroSd, treated metal frame, 20.7 MP rear cam and 5.1 Wide angle front cam. That's a winner for me
z series design need to improve on the back cover. change to aluminium frame..no more glass at the back..sony never learned from the old version.. the magnetic charger not to grip while charging and it always unplugged..
