daniel, 12 Feb 2015Sony please put ir blaster there just as samsung did in their phoneand LG also,i have lg g pad 8.3 tablet with ir blaster and i can change my TV or TV from bars,may be go for lg g4
I agree, IR blaster should be there. And since we all don't know if Sony is gonna release the Z4, we must think that if Sony doesn't release the Z4 in March, the public will lose interest in the Z3 because of the Galaxy s6. So if I were Sony I would release the Z4, and Z4 Compact in March and then release Z5 in March 2016.

Have patience to try it out yourself before jumping into conclusions.

But this doesn't mean that I'm not knowing what's happening around me. And I'm not a troll just because I'm honest, hell I'll maybe buy z4 as my 1st ever smartphone (if it can beat my w995 all round).
What I'm stating here is unfortunately a fact, if you google "sony bankruptcy 2014" you'll read numerous sites that mention that sony is failing year after year in smartphone business.
It's not me that woke up one day and said "I hate sony and they are failing"
My phone is Sony Ericsson W995, and it's 5 years old, and it's a sony device if I'm not mistaken. That shows how much I'm attached to it. It's with me since 5 years ago after all.
I really hope that Z4 will beat my w995 all round, something that I doubt.. but one can hope.
Anonymous, 08 Feb 2015i hate to say it but the nvidia chips use alot of power and would drain the battery and yet Sony flagship smartphones last longer than just about any other smartphone in the world with comparable specs.
I always love sony xperia.I have xperia z.
it has never given me any problems so far and has an excellent camera quality which no other phone has and also an elegant design. Sony products are always good and there is worth to spend for them despite of being costly.Iam looking forward eagerly for xperia z4.
DenisXD, 10 Feb 2015No one cares about the looks on a device? All we care are specs? Sorry baby, but you are bar... moreSony is an underdog..no matter what they will stay in the ring. I know and i have faith in them. They will not go bankrupt. They make some really awesome phones that are not appreciated, due to small issues that can be looked past. Samsung and HTC have issues. No phone Company is perfect, even Apple has their own flaws. So stop trolling here and go get a life. Your petty comments won't make a difference.
20.7 MP camera again :( . Looks like I'm gonna wait for Z5 or a better future smartphone which has a great camera.
DenisXD, 10 Feb 2015lords of genuine. I'm sorry but a huge piece of glass can hardly compared to the old Sony eric... more"piece of glass", "touchscreen and touchscreen". These are the words which you used to blame the latest generation of phone devices not just Sony. I think the originality, according to your last comment, means returning to the past (whats about the stone age). However, In my opinion, the key factors that make a product original are so different. Firstly, due to the reputation that an original company has gained, an original manufacturer must update itself to fulfill it`s costumers` needs. Nowadays, most people are really keen on using these kind of gadgets that you called piece of glass. Therefore, as an original company, Sony can not be a traitor to their avid fans. Secondly, as you know, phone industry is so different with car industry. Maybe a car manufacturer is anticipated to make it`s products originally in term of appearance as well as quality. A phone manufacturer however, is not expected to preserve it`s appearance trend for the reasons that I mentioned before (due to the demands of age). As a result, the majority of Sony fans prefer "Quality" and that is exactly the factor that satisfy me as a Sony phone user
Moreover, people have different appetites. In my view and many people like me, Sony phones are so beautiful comparing with other touchscreen devices. Surely with this massive number of fans, Sony never stop prospering.

Sorry baby, but you are barking at the wrong tree right now.
Looks are as important as specs in my opinion (as well as many others opinions).
Everyone has their opinion, so YOU shut up. Sony is maybe a big company but they are heading to bankruptcy.

Now all I see is touchscreen touchscreen touchscreen touchscreen all over the devices, from all manufacturers. The differences between sony z4 and samsung galaxy s6 are little, since every damn smartphone looks similar to the other.
I don't know if you catching up to the news but sony is falling in smartphone business and they look for a partner (just like back in 2000 when they were once again failing) or to entirely sell their entire mobile devision.
So yeah, so original that with that much originality they are heading to bankruptcy.
Just because I'm stating the fact about it's flash (which is a big deal for me since I'm an explorer), that makes me sony hater?
Yes the flash on Sony Z series is like having no flash. It's tiny and doesn't light up anything after 2m of distance in full darkness while W995 lights up entire rooms and hallways, and having a strong light source during exploring is vital. And I don't need a flashlight at all with W995.
So yeah, If they want us to pay top dollar they better put top hardware features in Z4.
Specs aren't everything!
DenisXD, 05 Feb 2015This. Sony is bankrupt anyway. And they lack of originality.
Superb device yes, but with suc... moreNow, the only trend that is catastrophically downward is related to the Samsung which saw a significant decrease of 80% in it`s sells in 2014.
Moreover, about the originality; I am sure that Sony phones are the most original ones in the world. This is not an exaggeration from an avid fan, this is an irrefutable truth. Almost all phones companies such as Nokia, Apple, Motorola and LG have seen a change of their manufacturer leadership or at least a partnership. But for Sony that was inverse. In other words, after separating from Ericsson and being pure Sony, their phones can be regarded as the Lords of genuine

Some people may prefer Nokia design, Others may enjoy Sony one. As a big fan of Sony, I am really keen on Sony phone designing. This is mainly because they are so prestigious and you wont feel having a toy like Samsung
Moreover, in term of quality and performance, Sony is the best and no one casts doubt on it.
