I have read every review i can find seen it in the shops and must say IMO it is the best phone at the time of me needing to purchase a new one. All phones and every other purchase in fact is not perfect if it was we would never need to move forward. For me its a big upgrade from my last im more than happy. A little disappointed about internal speaker volume as i use that a lot however im getting a free speaker with my phone so cant complain.

Aside from trying a 920 the problem is I am coming from a GS3 & that sets the bar pretty high as far as phones are concerned so my next phone has to surpass that level and I am not sure the Xperia Z does.

Default reviews

its so funny listening to phonearena review on htc one when at the end he made a comment about the camera quality saying the the device is a pre production device and that final release will be better, but also finished of by saying that it was the best camera to date that they have reviewed on smart phone.
anyone who has seen sample shots of the htc and xperia z will tell you that you dont have to have half a brain to see that sony is far better cam than htc but also didnt extend that same courtesy to sony when he reviewed the xperia z, regarding the pre production unit.

its so obvious that you have a few reviewers that are bias and there reviews should not be taken seriously

I will wait until I can physically test both phones (HTC One and the EZ). I am drawn to the One right now (h/w, screen and sound).... But the Z is unbelievably beautiful and will have better development support by Sony.....
I don't really care what Samsung bring to the table.... I've had a Galaxy phone for far too long. Time to change.

All the reviews are so polarized that it is useless reading them. Some say camera is awesome, battery life 1.5 days, gorgeous screen while others heavily criticize the same. Its best to try out the phone and see for yourself.

Can you tell more about he ZL. I will be buying it.. how's the display when looking straight on ? I don't care about viewing angles...

Display is fine. Don't listen to the nitpickers

the samsung galazy s 3 is a terrible device spec wise its decent but come on sounds to me you like watching cartoons, if you like looking at the samsung screen than sony xperia z screen is not for you.

plus the sony xperia z screen is for big boys why dont you came back to reality and start being a big boy lol and get over your cartoon faze lol.

Someone made an excellent point about the screen and purchasing items using online shopping , dont expect to see the correct colour representation of what ever item your purchasing if your using the samsung s 3. if you want the most true to life experience get the z that is what sony was going after anyway with this handset

I always found the S3 screen rather dull even when playing around with the settings.
