Agreed... I for one will be pleased when Sony is the only Manufacturer to run the S805 with a 1080p screen (according to the rumours). The extra performance from the S805 + Adreno 420 should be very noticeable on the 1080p Z3, whereas the QHD displays on the Samsung, HTC and LG flagships will put far more strain (75% more pixels to process) on the GPU, and could put those phones at risk of delivering a perceived decrease in performance, or in the best case scenario a tiny increase. All for a barely noticeable increase in PPI and bragging rights.
That aside, the Z3 is also rumoured to be using much improved anti-glare and reflection filters on the display as Sony's displays have always been more reflective than other manufacturers, as well as a class-leading contrast ratio for LCD displays.
Lastly, the size of these QHD panels is likely to be in the region of 5.5 inches, whereas Sony is sticking with 5.2 and is said to be reducing bezel size "significantly" and slimming the phone down. It's likely that we'll see the Z3 being the most comfortable size.
All sounds good to me.
