OK.. I'm an idiot and didn't read your description well. I thought it was the Z on one side and the ZL on the other. The screen probably won't keep me from buying one of them anyway. Thank you for the info!

It shouldn't because honestly when the phone is in your hand it looks amazing. The build quality on these two phones and great design is outstanding.

I've been searching for all the info on these that I can find for a month now. I'm sure I will be purchasing one of these as soon as they are available that work on US carriers.

Or...Get your buddy to send me one!

Thanks for the photos! Looks like it isn't much bigger than the ion at all, and it does look sharp for sure!
Also, I was looking through the other thread and saw there was an lte model functioning on AT&T bands, will there likely be multiple models available in the USA, or is there only the one? I apologize for the out of place questions, I just didn't see for sure elsewhere, and am unfamiliar with the model numbers yet.

I can't divulge too much but the C6606 will probably be the only XZ model available in the US.

Ui elements which are black on iOn and TX are designed grey on Z so have it in mind once you compare those screens.

Yes very true. Once the ion gets JB it will be a better comparison (as long as its like the T design) though even on the home screen you can see a difference in colors. Every Xperia I have seen and compared the ion still has the best blacks.
