Default Hmmm might cancel my Xperia z pre order

Am currently watching the HTC One announcement of their new phone. Have to say, looks pretty awesome, seriously considering cancelling my xz order and waiting for the HTC. I have had the HTC One and the HTC One X before, both have awesome screens, and when all the forum posts about the quality, or lack of quality, depending on which post your read, of the xz's screen. Hmmmm, decisions decisions.

TBH I was thinking the same not long ago but after hearing the new HTC has no memory card slot and only 32gb version. Im not interested atleast 64gb like one x+ would have changed my mind.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Black 16gb

Sony z Pros
Better looking (i think)
Water/dust proof (not really something I need)
SD-card
Better dev support
less customized version of android, so possible faster roll out of new versions

HTC One pros
Newer SOC / faster/ less power
Better Screen
More internal memory
probably better speakers (not that i care)
infrared (not that i care)

As for the camera we don't know which will be better, and I don't really care as in the end all camera phones are rubbish

I'm not sure what to do, but looking at the hardware spec list the HTC is the one to get
looking at the software and design I favor the Z

Darn why could HTC just make a ****y phone

edit:
The presentation veld a bit like a teenage phone, that is holding me back as well

I'm sorry but the HTC One looks better than the XZ. And better Dev support on the Sony? Please.

Like I said, to me it looks better, no sense in arguing about taste
HTC is famous for being late with the release of kernel source and when they do it is often in a non compilable state, Sony is quicker and better in this respect .
Saying things like "please" isn't an argument.

It looks better to you is cool but to say sony will roll out updates sooner and better Dev support is funny.

HTC has a large Dev community, LARGE. Mike 1986 is a known HTC guy, and we all know him. And its just one guy that I'm mentioning. This argument about release of kernel source is what you sony guys keep talking about, yet all previous Sony devices aren't relevant today.
