That is a mm off both bezel... I wouldnt call that much smaller... It is practically the same m8 design, with new z2 alike speaker grills.

Arindam, 17 Feb 2015I am fully agreed with you htc do it better Thats what made me want M9, and because it will be the most beautiful smartphone ever.

In a thicker device, a bigger camera sensor fits and bigger speakers.
Sony has admited that they are sacrificing quality in order to make their devices thiner.
M9 will be 5 inches with slimmer bazels than m8, rounder corners and gorrila glass 4. So think again, thickness is quality.
I think z4 will have super camera quality and it should have xenon flash lights! !!!!
It will be just another flagship phone from Sony, with No accessory support from day 1. It will announce soon will be delivered when its outdated.
I had Z all the way to Z3, i change phones very frequently. That being said, Screen brakes like no other phone on the market and its not usable after small crack. What?
Direct support is impossible, just forget it. I cant speak for Carrier Support though.
Battery life is really bad, unless used with Stamina mode, and lower brightness.
Camera is Ok, still comparing to lower MP phones such as iphone shutter is slow, and depth of field is flat.
Build quality could be better, weight isn't well balanced.
Display on Z3 was dramatically better compared Z2 Z1 .
I wont consider this phone unfortunately.

Htc s rounded back design is the reason for its thickness
But m9 will be quite big overall, not at all compact in any way, htc always has biggest bezels that dont stand out cause of a visual trick
About music, it is rumored there will be a Z4Music model too, with dedicated extra amps... ;-)
Arindam, 17 Feb 2015I am fully agreed with you htc do it better I m fully not agreed...:-D.
Htc only made it equal with m9, think z4 will eat it up if rumours get to be true

Regarding to the dimension of HTC that seems to be the primary weak point of HTC M9. As you know, thickness is the key factor when you want to consider a phone as a compact one. However HTC M9 thickness is 9.6mm which is a disaster in this era. It is even more than Sony 2011 phones such as Xperia arc that had a 8.7mm thickness. I am sure Xperia Z4 will become with a thickness less than 7mm

Guess one can adapt it to more quality sound by equilizer
Then there you go, get an htc...
It ll be a good device too
I personally dislike htcs UI look, multimedia and camera apps, and design is not my cup of cake, although it runs smooth...
Sorry but the sound is maybe loud. bun nowhere as great as M8. With that being a fact, I'm moving to HTC M9 as it has two flashes, the best audio output, smaller design, unsaturated colours, gorilla glass 4 and also 20mp camera.
I don't see the reason to get z4 when M9 will be a better and more compact device.
Yes I tested the z phones myself, in my hands.
At a store. I checked everything that matters to me (like loudness and camera) and my current mobile has better and louder music output from both ear, and external speakers.
It's screen is oversaturated, just like samsung galaxy series, which isn't for my taste. I rather real life, normal colours.
Plus Z series phones are bigger than the uocoming M9. And as a freerunner I want a smaller device that CAN fit in my waistbag. Plus M9 has everything Z4 has, including a 20mp camera.
Maybe Z series and bigger phones are for you.
Sony overall has the best performing phones in the market. I work in Vodafone and find we sell hardly any though as they are ugly as sin itself.
DenisXD, 14 Feb 2015I can certainly do point a few bads about the device (unatural vivid colours, small flash, ver... moreYou know Denis, you REALLY should get a Z series xperia and use it for some time before judging based on web reviews...
The durability of that glass is much more than made up troll stories make it up to be, shatters only from 2m drop, just like htc m8
The screen colors are fully adjustable ( vivid is no more with one click xreality off if you prefer so)
The camera is much more capable than internet reviews show, cause they dont bother to use manual max out of it
The sound on earphones is superb quality and loud ( cant remember hearing better quality sound on any other phone), speakers are loud, especially on z3...
I had a w995 also and only thing better on it is cybershot, but not that significantly better
Thing is...you are bitching and being overcritical a bit too much about sth you havent even really used...
So...go get yourself a z4 or z3 or whtever, use it for a month or two and come back to discuss reallife experience stuff
i used z1 for 6 months...it was the best in market when i bought it...and i loved it
unfortunately i lost it last year phone...so am planning to buy a new one...but now there are many other phones too..which one should i be looking forward to? i want the best!
