Sfans, 13 Sep 2014I admit that if Z3 Compact is better than Galaxy Alpha, but about Z3 is better than Note 4 is ... moreThats your opinion. I had Note 2 at launch, no doubt THE best there was at the time. I really grew tired of that phone too fast, it wasnt any good after all. Then i tested Note 3 when it came out and the higher resolution really made a big difference but the rest of Note 3 was just more of the same garbage.
Note series isnt for everyone and that removable plastic back is very hard to sell to those who want a premium feel. Anything removableis bad in my book, if i want to plunder with plastic parts i rather buy a Kinder Joy (better known as Kinder Egg for many Europeans) and get that white chocolate as a bonus. Hey maybe Samsung should add some white milk choco behind the back cover also?
We all have different criteria, saying that Note 4 is good for everyone is totally ridiculous.
jamy, 13 Sep 2014Why people compare between note 4 & z3? Sony didn't release any phablet yet.if they releas... moreNote 4 is only 7.5mm longer than Z3, either they are both phablets or none of them are. I would like a Z3 but i dont like phablets anymore, been there done that, not again thanks. The Z3 size would be nice with the PS4 adapter since the Z3 Compact will be too small for that use. Another and more important problem is that due to game selections (and Kinect superiority over PS Camera) i'll be picking up an Xbox One and i dont find it likely that i will get a PS4 this year, i bet the Z4 is out long before i see any must-have exclusive titles for PS4, and the news about the next Tombraider being Xbox exclusive hasnt exactly strengthened my desire for a PS4, so there went the last need for a Z3 phablet out the door =)
Kumichiro, 13 Sep 2014Sorry, but iPhone 6 Plus is a phablet, though (-,-"). But I'm totally agree with your opinion.Its my mistake brother

[deleted post]Here we go.... Sony Defender! Lol. Sometimes, Apple and Sony fanboys make me laugh with their opinions. Can you approve that if Z3 is much better than Note 4? Get the fact dude, Z3 is losing to Note 4 in EVERYTHING.
if u r planning to buy this phone so plz. dont do this mistake .i used z2,z ultra...and i know it very well that the sony looks gr8 in hands but at the end everyone needs gr8 features which only NOTE 4 has ........i had z ultra and note3 at the same time.but performance wise sammy is much much better........SO GO FOR note 4 .its a masterpiece of this era........
For the first time i see the ISO 12000 in a waterproof smart phone. I have sony xperia z2 and samsung galaxy s5. Sony xperia z2 very fast and unbelievable perfomance than s5. Camera and display is marvelous. I VOTE TO SONY. make believe

[deleted post]Here we go.... a die hard Sony defender! I admit that if Xperia Z3 Compact is much better than Galaxy Alpha (except camera) but I don't think Z3 is better than Note 4 which has robust specs. Yes, Z3 is far better than iPhone 6 but it's not much better than Note 4.
For all the people saying it is exactly like Z2 and this and that. I bet you would'nt say the same if it was Samsung or Apple. They have been making small improvements too, but they are overrated. Sony is the underdog. Sure they could have included more things. They are probably aiming to make the Z4 a game changer. If i had the money i would instantly buy this. Specially since they released some gorgeous new colors, but im happy with my Z1. Amazing Product, well done SONY!

Hope the failure of Sony doesnt scare them from trying the high end phablet market again, Sony must be smart enough to understand that the lack of LED flash was the only reason Z Ultra failed so badly. If the Z3 Ultra has LED flash and S805 with 3GB RAM and QHD display it is gonna bring them some profit, not generate losses like what Z Ultra did. Z ULtra is so cheap here now that its almost like free and still it fails to sell.
Further, i think Z3 Ultra at lets say 6.2 to 6.4 inches will be the best size for streaming PS4 games, but a QHD display may be a problem, for best PS4 compatibility it should be 1080p but then people will not buy it in the first place, 1080p is mighty thin already at 6 inches and not competitive with Note 4.
I think sony should change their policy if they really want to fight against Samsung & defeat them in market competition. Every year Samsung release two flagship device. One is s series phone & a phablet named which is mire powerfull than s series.sony also follow this tactics though they give a very little update that is not enough to draw the attention of customers. That's why they have to give big updates in their flagship devices.
