congrats to Sony, Very competitive product, but the big players like Samsung & HTC are about to release their weapon of choice for 2013 , The most important thing is now Timing, if Sony is faster then the others they might have a chance !?
Great specs but I really don't like those on-screen Back/Home/Menu(or whatev) buttons! I mean, not only on this phone, but on every other newer Android out there! And also, front camera should be above the screen! :P But otherwise, great phone!
The only thing that holds me from buying this phone (once released) is its non removable battery.
I hope this phone ZL will be released here in the Philippines! I hope both the Z and ZL! ^^
jb, 05 Jan 2013this is the best sony smart phone.Couldn't agree more, if not to say 'best SMARTPHONE' ever ;-)
zayed khan, 05 Jan 2013give battery life more powerfull..as motorola..Sony can not make what Motorola made yet.
TMach, 05 Jan 2013What a stupid comment as any manufaturer can put in whatever size battery they want but whethe... moreIf Sony can, then why the heck didn't make it? All of Sony phones have a weak battery! I tell you something man:if you can, you will make things!!!
Sony is only the name! They are not as good as people think. This is true when we are talking about their TV's too.
Anyway this phone looks cool, and I hope they will have a big success.
Holy shmow cow!!! I would chew off BOTH MY ARMS TO OWN THIS LEVIATHAN!! Wouldn't be able to use it then, but who cares when it's THIS awesome!!!!!!!!!!!
Can't wait. This looks like the perfect phone for me. It has all I ever wanted from a phone. Just don't mess this up with a bad battery, Sony.
Antonymous., 03 Jan 2013There was some fairly good proof of Yuga having a 2330 mAh battery, with Odin (ZL) being thick... moreWill happily live with that battery as only Motorola use bigger batteries in this class of phone. The key is in how the phone is optimised and it is not simply about battery size!
Mobilemaster, 05 Jan 2013Sony is unable to make phones with 4000 mAh of battery man, only Motorola and maybe Samsung can.What a stupid comment as any manufaturer can put in whatever size battery they want but whether they choose to is another matter!
madjoker, 04 Jan 2013battery needs to b huge 4000 mah nothing lesser than that !!!@ if sony doesn't learn from i... moreSony is unable to make phones with 4000 mAh of battery man, only Motorola and maybe Samsung can.
please release this phone fast, sony. with this, you can definitely get your position back in the market
If this time Sony put battery around 2000Mah than it's gonna be epic fail for mobile with such a big screen & huge features.Sony please learn something from Motorola.
