Thumbs up Hmm

Personally for me i am going with the Z, i mean the phone is shatterproof, waterproof, dustproof, has a 1080P screen, HDR video, 13MP, 2 GB ram, and a snapdragon processor, the difference between sony and samsung is that sony make good sturdy durable devices while on the other hand samsung make cheap plastic ugly devices. The sony xperia Z is neat, elegant and stylish, not to mention unique. With samsung they use propaganda to get people to buy their phones, ie (8 core octa processor) i mean not even i7 desktops have 8 cores, thats just an example of samsungs devious ways, not only this but samsung dont realise their sources for their firmware or kernels, so custom roms are always so buggy and out of touch, while on the contrary sony work carefully with devs to deliver the best user experience for the user, not only this but waiting for devices is stupid, i mean no matter how long you wait their will be new technology out, you can't always have the most up to date phone, i mean its not as if you have a iphone 3Gs, so yeah the xperia Z in white is the one.

And we have already seen a s4 pro 1080p phone quite a time ago.
And those upcoming phones might just 2or3 months away

I agree, but hardware isnt everything. Example is Galaxy Nexus, which is despite dated hardware probably even smoother than SGS3. IMO s4 pro with well optimized software should be very smooth. Probably CM will run better on Xperia Z, because Sony provides sources to developers. Question is if SGS4 will get CM support, because developers are unhappy with closed sources for Samsung phones.

After my experience with sammy phones, i feel they like producing phones in bulk. (quantity and not quality)
cheap and plasticy, oversaturated unnatural screen and really low build quality
Even though they are huge organization it takes them so much time to release updates
their hardware and software gui and aesthetics are really not good

plus their development support is the worst. not only is exynos closed sourced and outdated, but every update they do gets so much bugs.

sony takes time, and does good quality stuff.. is super development friendly and i heard they will also give support to aosp for their new devices including Z

its definitely Z for me..

Apparently there's news now that the new Galaxy S IV will have an 8 core CPU clocked at 1.8ghz.
If true, I'm going to wait for Samsung instead of Sony.

its just 4 cores of a15 and 4 of a7
why? because this way it will use less power, so all a15 and a7 wont be used.. so practically only 4 cores will be used..

so tomorrow qcomm can easily put in 20 cores and say.. yayy we made 20 cores, and still 4 cores will be used:

the core no.s etc are just pr means to attract customers, nothing else.. a dual core even works so amazingly well.. there is no end haha

DONATE TO ME
most likely 99% going for the Z.

Samsung will never EVER EVER be able to design a phone that looks or feels this nice, THEY have not got the balls to do this,

Tell me where in hell are you going to use 8 cores?!?!!?

It is like buying a ferrari and then only ever driving it through urban streets

S4 pro is good enough
