What you guys thinking, are you gonna quickly buy Xperia Z or planning to wait for the official announcement of Samsung Galaxy S4 !!

I want Sony to release Xperia Z at the earliest (by Feb end atleast) to avoid confusion amongst probable buyers !!

I guess you should wait for something better than xperia z it still uses s4 pro processor/gpu which is still around the note 2 s so I think wait for s4, optimus g2, or something newer

Also battery would be unremovable
And I guess a bit less than note 2

With this being a developer forum, I can't for my life understand why you're even considering Samsung products, since they're not very developer friendly.

Samsung has failed time after time to deliver what the developers want.

Sony on the other hand is working closely with the developers and don't change very much from the provided source.

If you want to root your device and have custom roms on it in the future don't go for Samsung.

But as others already have mentioned in this thread. Mobile phone developement is going amazingly fast and in another 2 - 3 months, if you can wait, prices will have dropped on current phones and new ones will be availible. On the other hand: If you're waiting for newer and better stuff you can wait forever. Especially in the line of electronics hardware.

I would wait and see if a new display driver improves the quality of the contrast, which I think is really low in comparison what should be possible right now. Other than that I really like the Sony UI (better than Sammys) so if Battery life and Display is ok I'm buying one, also because S3 (and hopefully not s4) is a cheap plastic gadget. Also the development section might be better for the Z. Maybe the new HTC M7 is the phone we should wait for, because they really need a strike.

Right, I played the waiting game too much already and I know it's not worth it to wait forever ...

+1 I doubt they will release kernel sources for that octacore cpu. Sony is much more "XDA friendly"

Yes s4 pro is a bit better than exynos 4412 but the difference wont be like upcoming A15 quads and s4 primes
And we have already seen a s4 pro 1080p phone quite a time ago.
And those upcoming phones might just 2or3 months away
