This phone looks great but man, this glassy design is really slippery and many people were complaining about it since Z.
Why can't Sony learn?
The size of the phone is just perfect considering the qhd resolution, but why qhd?
I didn't hear a lot of complains about z3's full hd screen, most were praising it for it's battery. Sony should had stick to full hd and give us full costumization on the settings, for gama, for contrast and for colours. Many are complaining about phones not having a way to change basic settings. I know it's not a TV, but come on.. how difficult can it be to let people have a full settings list for the screen?
I love the fact that Sony has stereo speakers but the sound isn't very loud.
I still have my Sony Ericsson W995 and it's loudness surpasses the loudness of almost all smartphones out there and considering W995 is 5 years old, that's unacceptable.
I would love to see z4 having very loud speakers and Sony focusing on it, very loud, crystal sound is really a big deal to me. I wish Sony head back to the past and take a look at their walkman's loudness and bring it back to their current phones.
I really want to get updated from W995, but the current smartphones don't have that loudness. Even from the 3,5 jack the sound coming from my ear speakers is louder with better quality. And when I tried it on z3, the sound wasn't that loud neither that great, big fail.
I want Sony to focus on their phone's loudness and quality once again. I can't believe they were promoting z3 having great sound, without actually having it.
From their cameras I have no complain, but a little bit of more width on the phone won't hurt in order to put a bigger camera module inside for better pictures. Stick to 20mp and just improve on the picture's quality, 20mp are more than enough.
Having said these, I believe the price should be lowered by 1/6. The PS4 sold much more thanks to it's price than xbox one and it is better spec wise all round. PS4 proved that quality doesn't have to be expensive, that made PS4 break the window, when xbox one just scratched it.
Please sony, please.. consider on improving on what you already have. That means stick to 20mp, stick to stereo, very loud speakers and the screens resolution of full hd.
After all z4 will be a phone, and full hd is really more than enough.
That's all coming from a long Sony ericsson user, and still is. Wondering if my W995 ever gets owned in every way from a smartphone, and considering that W995 is a sony product, I believe sony is more than capable to do that.
Let's hope that z4 will be that device..
fractious bob, 24 Dec 2014I am Price of Perrsia. I just use my another profile becuase some coward people report!!!. ... moreI can write the name of the site from I quoted, if GSMArena let me to do so. I tried to mention it, but I couldn't. Sorry.
Prince of Perssia, 25 Dec 2014 Dude, do you think it is a convincing scientific report. But there are some egregious fallac... moreBut you know too, that Sony is behind Samsung if we are talking about camera quality. Even GSMArena said the Sony Z3 is not better than it's competitors. Please go and check some reviews.
I posted that comment, because somebody said Samsung is at last place. This is not true. For example the Note Edge is a real innovation.
Rameez, 25 Dec 2014Stock Android and Sony will hit the roof.calm man wait for g4 to unleash the fury
I know Sony already, the Z4 will be just bigger and flatter, still only 16GB storage, the same old 20.7 camera once again. Faster SoC, sure, but is that what Z3 is missing? Theres already more than enough performance, wish they rather make improvements that mean something for daily use, bigger and flatter is as far from innovation as it can get. For example the color reproduction of Z3, worse than Samsung ever was, and now Samsung is already having good color reproduction. Budget phones at below $100 has more natural colors.
I hope Z4 is NOT going to be introduced at CES in March that's way too soon.
Again active duel sim is missing in waterproof phone.

Mobilemaster, 24 Dec 2014OK. I have just checked an article about Sony Xperia Z3 vs LG G3 camera comparison. The G3 wa... moreFirst of all, you assumed that Sony LCD is rubbish due to an imaginary article that you read. But how that survey is valid and how you acknowledged your source is a matter of option.Even if that article was credible, It would not prove anything. As I am an PhD student in electronic engineering and know a lot of things about Sony and Samsung LCDs, I have not such a temerity that to criticize such a state of the art technology. Therefore It is really needed some very specialized academic people if we want to evaluated LCDs.
