Anonymous, 21 Jan 2015No need to go beyond 1080, PERIOD. Yes, FHD and UHD are the same on phones :)
munno1, 18 Jan 2015I hope they also introduce z4 compact . anything more than 4.5 inch is too big to use as a phone. Could not agree more! "Flint-phones" are sooo 2012!

It's have more speed than Class 10 or UHS 1.
It's the minimum requirement for 4K HD imaging.
You should know, Sony & SanDisk is partner, so i think Sony will use this latest flash storage format.

This is not unique to Sony devices, I don't know of any handset which has fast enough storage to saturate USB 2.0
70.9% screen body ratio is the only cons to me..other that that this would be the best phone till end of 2015.

this is going to be a real beast!!
i just hope that they stick with the 1080p screens
difference between a 1440p and a 1080p screen in a size of ~5 inches can NOT be seen, i swear!!
plus, it doesn't mean that if a processor supports QHD that it is guaranteed to run flawlessly!
samsung is best in waterproof wait for xcover 3 if appears
I would prefer and expect to see a USB 3.0 connection on this phone, as it would allow for transferring larger hd recordings taken with the camera faster. I do not think it is too much to ask since the snapdragon 810 chipset is USB 3.0 capable anyway. If they don't do this, then I will see it as more of a wasted feature hidden within the chipset of the phone, and may put me off buying one since I can afford to wait for a smartphone indefinitely anyway.
Manufacturers have been holding on the USB 2.0 specification for far too long. File sizes are dramatically increasing, and I for one would expect a high class smartphone such as this to be able to transfer a hd recording within minutes rather than waiting half an hour or more.
kenchang, 16 Jan 2015Suck features not improve from xperia z to z4 still using old screen resolution full hd really... moreBetter 1080p than 2k. You can't really see the extra pixels. Plus the battery will longer with 1080p. On the other hand, its a mobile phone.. 1080p is more than enough.
I can't wait to see Walkman Logo in this phone.
That is one of the most iconic logo in music industry.
The first music portable in the world is back !!!
Suck features not improve from xperia z to z4 still using old screen resolution full hd really can't accept it as newest smartphone....
