GSMArena preview shows a contrast of 700:1. That is simply put an incredible fail who the hell cares about that resolution if you are sacrificing on something as important as contrast and colors.



"More disturbingly, the display has rather poor contrast for a flagship unit and not really inspiring colors."

Sony has goofed up once again.

How many times have we said, the demo units are not for sale and not built using the IPS screens, the actual production models look brilliant and way better than the demo models, GSMARENA have contacted Sony for another model, they will revisit the test, most likely they will get a retail device this time.

This is why it is called a "preview" not a view?
Dont worry dude, wait till its released, only 2 weeks to go then go down to your local store and see it for yourself, specs on paper can be different to what you will actually see or prefer

Personally i think the latest video on post 1, the very first one looks fantastic, HE OR SHE HOLDS THE PHONE at roughly 160 to170 degrees, you can still see the icons without any washing out etc.

Took ages.

Also sammy suffers screen burn in and doesn't feel premium for the price.
My s2 did. Also the plastic scuffed very easily.

Exactly, people make a big deal about small stuff like that, its better to just speculate for now guys, the xperia Z when released will be a total beast! Take my word for it!
