had one year ago xperia z just a while and sold it.
the main reason that you will not get the same speed and support like for the nexus 5.

and even with so popular galaxy s4, our still not that smooth like nexus 5.
why other companies cannot get normal android os for their devices and do not install their garbage software.

when I test z1 and z. the speed on z1 is definitely faster than z. But I prefer N5 than z1.

yes

fyi i own n5 and xz and the xperia z has a better cam and is a perfect outdoor phone, the n5 is the speed monster. Combined they are a good team

Also the Xperia Z's battery time is much better than the n5's.

So I would like you to tell me what you think is best.

My main usage is social apps/web browsing, watch movies, listen to music, take casual photos and gaming (just a little).

I know the N5 has a much better cpu and gpu, but I'm not going to play much hardcore games (maybe just some GTA).

The advantages of Xperia Z are:
  • micro-sd slot (big advantage for me)
  • it's waterproof (awesome)
  • better battery life(?)
  • has better headphone audio quality
  • even though it hasn't got android 4.4 yet, it has android 4.3 with Sony apps
  • better overall quality

I can't really decide because I like Nexus 5 too, it's design and screen.

Just another question do you think is Xperia Z worth 70 more than Nexus 4? (not related to the main choice)

Thank you.
Go for nexus if you want to use unadulterated version of Android, wants to receive future upgrades early, want a better camera and much options in Android development
