Ram? Pixel density? Battery capacity and longevity? Android and its apps? GPU?
I am a fan of Nokia Lumia but they still lag behind.

The metal in the Alpha is attractive, but the Z3C gets only praise for its construction and in-hand feel.

It doesn't look as good as the notification LED on the Z1 Compact, but at least there still is one.
Sony should make decent notification lights again like on Xperia SP. Even better if they could make the whole rim of the phone a big 360° notification light! (maybe they could be alluding to something like that in a future model with the translucent rim on this Z3C?)

This is indeed an excellent product of Sony, hope they've released earlier. This is narrower than the Galaxy S2, but mightier in all aspects. We knew S2 brought Samsung huge sales, had Sony been quick to announce and RELEASE, it would've bring them huge PROFIT, but instead they're busy making low end and midrange phones where China phones are king and much cheaper. This brings Sony huge loss as they lag on releasing this mighty Z3C. Hope Sony focus on high end Z3C, Z3,... just like Apple.
Wow, Sony have done a great job here. Very well specd and some how got a 4.6 inch screen onto a phone almost the same size as the iPhone 5s. The IPhone 6 with a 4.7 inch screen looks huge by comparison. I think Sony have taken the "one handed phone" crown away from Apple with this. The ability to add up to 128 Gb torage (ie 144 gb total) is really cool as well. Brilliant, brilliant job, this could be my next upgrade and first Sony phone for over 8 years, and a replacement for my iPod classic which is no longer being made, all at the same time.
