The Desire HD's screen was just fine when it got released, but that's like 3 years ago, and we've seen a lot of really really nice screens since then. And Sony decides to put this garbage in their flagship in 2013. Fantastic. But i guess i'll just have to wait for the XZ to hit the stores so i get a chance to take a close look at it myself (and compare it to all the other screens there).

It is a decent screen - but no doubt the HTC One and the DNA are superior.

Sure, i guess it does the job, but i can't ignore the fact that every single screen out there that's 0-2 years old are looking so much better. I guess i can just ignore the XZ and move on, but i don't want to I really really want it, but...*insert rage face*!

I'm in exactly the same situation. I really want it bad but will only decide after seeing the screen in action myself.

I think putting a sub par screen with well below average viewing angles and contrast will bite Sony in the ass.
I might give the z a skip and hope Sony get their shhht together next time.

Considering the huge amount of pre-orders in Europe and sales in Japan I'm quite sure it won't be a problem.

The screen is fine. Yes it may be worse than HTC's but on that pic HTC looks way better because of Sony's grey UI
Don't forget to donate if you read my post above.

My god this thread is like a roundabout, we're just going around in circles!!

People should hold their judgement until they see the phone, rather than judging the screen from photos etc!

agree. and what for one person ist the crappiest screen ever, might be for another person the best screen ever seen. it's a personal point of view if the screen is good or not.

Indeed - which appears to be quite obvious from the jet black blob that is on the Social icon ... at least I assume that to be part of the icon and not an error on the image, but I don't know what the icon looks like in reality ?

you can fight if good amoled is better then good tft or good ips... but Z display is objectively weak... of course resolution and size make an impression, but if compare to others it looks awful:

Z I was using few hours was much worse then S. no vivid, no clear white and no brightness
