You might wanna change the title to "Optimus G Pro"

- Optimus G is in fact lighter than the Z.

If the purpose is to make a decision on which phone to get, you might also wanna consider price? I don't know where you live, but where I live the Optimus G is priced considerably lower than the Xperia Z. Another thing to consider, if you're into rooting and flashing custom ROMs, might be the fact that SONY seems to be friendlier towards communities such as this one, meaning that developers have an easier time developing for SONY phones.

Good luck and all the best!
He is not talking about optimus G but about upcoming Optimus G pro.

And G Pro is the winner over XperiaZ hands down

Default Sv: Optimus Prime Pro vs Xperia Z

Even the normal G does a better jobb than the Z for my use. Did use my Z for one day then i was done with it.. not a big Sony Fan.
So if I want 5"+ i will wait on the Pro or see what Samsung will have on next Galaxy. HTC One will be fun try tho, looks like a sweet phone..

G pro is not using zerogap display but the display quality is around 1000 times better than xperia z
and the snapdragon 600 processor really kills
the only merit of xperia z = water resistant
other than that xperia z will not even match any upcoming new phones

If lucky I gonna get my G pro this week
I don't know why G pro is not coming out till now
Can any korean friends explain a bit what's going on?!
reviews telling that the display will not be as nice as optimus G
but the quality is still good enough to kill most phones in current market
M7/S4 are also good choices

leaked look of S4

The Snapdragon 600 is very fast, just look at these benchmarks 24k in antuntu, 12k in quadrant....
