One has to know the tricks of Xperias 20mpx camera to get the best of it...cause it is in fact best camera on the mobilephone market today...
For others who just want to point and click, there is iphone

They said that a bigger camera sensor would have been able to take better pictures indeed, but they didn't want to make z3 any thicker.
Also I don't really call quality the lack of gorilla glass.. I call it stubbornness

It is fully understandable why they do this as HTC is a pure Chinese company. I know nowadays Chinese companies are developing and they have made high quality phones. Japan however, is a veteran in the electronic industry and some technologies are exclusively used by this Beast. Nevertheless, I am not a hatter of HTC as it is my second favorite after Sony. So, I wont give you my bad impression and strongly recommend you to buy what you want.

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 It will announce soon will be delivered when its outdated.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

With that being a fact, I'm mov... moreMy impression is that no one can cast doubt on the Sony phones sound quality as Sony has a solid background in making music-optimized phones like Walkman series as well as mp3 players. 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
