The xperia z pics wont look half bad either if they were taken/downsized to 4 megapixels. I remember everyone was going mental here at some photo samples that were posted by a user - downsized to 3 megapixels - saying it took better pics than the nokia pureviews. He posted the actual 13mp raw files and it was back to the usual.

What makes HTC's camera is the OIS - plus I love HTC's approach towards shattering the megapixel myth. I hope more manufacturers do what they've done.

It has the same GPU as the s4 pro, it is a marginal update, maybe it will perform better in some cases. the 800 series will be a different beast.

.
Exactly ... they removed noise but nothing spectacular there... i just saw that wristwatch shot ... and it reminded of same shot that was in my archives ...HTC snap was better but not by huge margin... Carl Zeiss sensor was also good though... i still consider it better than many 8 MP shooters out there except for top 2-3 8mp phones...
on a serious note this work what HTC did not should have been done before.... when they used to pack 5mp snappers in phones.... now its more like show off ... but many people will be disappointed...

Yes ...totally agree.. Even nokia has said it before ..." it is not about number of megapixels , it depends on how you use them " ..... with less light entering small sensors... it is very much important to use that light effectively

These topic's are so stupid, technology nowadays is going so fast... Each device you're fighting for these days will be outdated in a few months.
Just choose a device and live with it until you can get a newer one.

SO WHAT'S THE POINT!??
Yep. Besides there's always a comparison thread, this needs to be closed.

When in reality it does support 64gb cards!

Oh and I don't understand the big deal about the design, its basically the same as the Blackberry Z10.

Z10 has better proportions and less flashy, more class. But that is just how I feel. I can imagine lots of people will disagree with me

same thing with my old ass TF101 that can handle 64 GB card but officially its only up to 32 GB. I think it might have something to do with compatibility for some brands, if it doesn't work, they just don't have to deal with customers complaining because the official word is up to 32 GB.

Obviously ONE will have a far better screen than XZ. And NO, I am not talking about pixel density here. SLCD3 is far superior than whatever XZ display tech is. Both phones are a looker. The only advantage the that Sony has right now is the water and dust proofing on it.
