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!
I am samsung user note 1 3 4 dan s4 and i dont hate sony. I think future. Technology is #1 whatever the brand. Sony hatters is fool ;)

AnonD-164440, 14 Feb 2015Are you not sharing your media content in your 4k tv? Maybe you didnot understand what I mean.... morethat's great but what's the difference on the mobiles screen? none.
And since the mobile records in 4k, im pretty sure that the playback on the tv will be 4k.
Plus, if the devices resolution is 1080p then the tv will be automatically adjusted to 1080p and not 4k.
Plus, I'm more than happy with my 1080p 32 inch tv, having a 50 inch tv in my bedroom will be death for my eyes.
Look 4k is 4x1080p resolution in modern TV and this resolution is meant for wide TV Display. If you share your 1080p media content from your xperia to your 4k TV, then it will be expanded 4x. Try and see the losses in saturation and contrast.... If you share it with 1080p Display TV there is no issue no loss at all....

Maybe you didnot understand what I mean....Go to your: Settings\Xperia Settings\Screen Mirroring.... This is why we need higher resolution specially videos. Pixel density is another matter.
AnonD-164440, 14 Feb 2015One more thing. If sony will add a feature XTended Reality display like their recent Bravia TV... moreI disagree. display on a mobile phone is display on a mobile phone!
You really can't tell the difference of fhd and 2k. It's because of the already insanely high ppi. above 320ppi you can't see a pixel without naked eye. Even 1080p is a lot for that screen size. People are fool to go ahead and buy the last of the last mobile phone models. Not asking themselves why, Why do I need more pixels? Why do I need bigger size?
The answer is, marketing.
All these just to fool people that the next thing is always better than the last. But you people forget that it's only a mobile phone.
One more thing. If sony will add a feature XTended Reality display like their recent Bravia TV's in their phone displays. Then no doubt, sony will excel in the mobile market. Otherwise, it will be a disaster and the more they will slide down.

That's only my concern with sony. Almost all my phone are sony except Z3.... Speaking of Z3, at the time of production, 2k display resolution was on the trend, but sony defended that 1080p against the 2k is hardly noticeable with this size of screen. But how can you change the mindset of the people? That's the trend, then ride with it, otherwise you loose and thats what happened. Hoping Z4 will go along with the recent trend or even more. Then i'll buy one.... One more thing my TV is 4k and if 1080p images is displayed in it it's blured... You must consider also that 8k display now entered the TV market. Possibilities are 2k and 4k will also be outdated....
AnonD-164440, 14 Feb 2015Note that Apple, Samsung, HTC and even the new Huawei are already dominating the market.... Th... moreI agree that Xreality engine is less sensible and more tantalizing like those of Samsung or Apple.However, no one can cast doubt on the Sony camera, display and sound quality. For the proof, you would refer to the enormous number of benchmarks that put Sony Z3 at the top regarding to these three important factors. In term of performance, Sony Z3 has not been regarded as the best phone by all benchmarks but the significant number of them.
Note that Apple, Samsung, HTC and even the new Huawei are already dominating the market.... The thing with sony is that they are not pleasing customers' desire. Mostly people's comments and recommendations including myself are the bezels on top and bottom making their phone too bulky compared to the others. Again, considering that sony had made an excellent work starting from Z2, but bezels are still there and its too promiment. Too odd to see.... Look, iPhone and Samsung S5 can't be compared with Z2 or Z3 for color reproduction, camera, built, sound quality but except bezels. As if sony's reply to people's comments and recommendations is "NO, WE WILL NOT DO IT, THATS WHAT WE WANT AND LIKE, YOU BUY IPHONE, SAMSUNG, HTC, ETC....". That's why Sony failed in the market. Look again in S4. Samsung managed to fool people by introducing new "TECHNOLOGY" (but can never be used) smart scroll etc.... and the good thing is that the capacitive bottons are in the bezel itself making the phone very nice, MINIMALIST and impressive but don't start the phone. I have that phone and I was fooled also.... Octa Core (collection of outdated processors), blackish display, plastic/non-premium built, low resolution camera, etc.. So sony have to mind customers a little bit...... Make your phone minimalist. Further enhance sound quality, deeper blacks (not the white led as it produces washed-out or whitish display on images) in the display and dont fool people by your xreality engine or vivid display as there is no difference if these features were switched-off.
