I made a comparison between the stock Android 4.4 (KitKat) user interface and the new Sony Xperia user interface (since Android 4.3 for Xperia Z).

Left = stock Android 4.4 (KitKat) interface
Right = new Sony Xperia interface


Which one do you prefer?

Lock screen



App drawer



Change homescreen



Phone app



Compose email & keyboard



Settings app



Camera app









Alarms



Time



Stopwatch



Timer



Music player

u can't do this comparison in this way , it should be stock 4.3 and sony 4.3
or wait for sony 4.4 kitkat and then do the comparison between them ,
totally not fair

The main idea was to do a comparison 'Google Nexus vs. Sony Xperia'.
Currently, Nexus devices are on Android 4.4 and Xperia devices are on 4.3.
Anyway, do you think that Sony will change its interface a lot for Android 4.4?

Wen sony comes out with their official kitkat, m sure it'll be unique... That time it'll be best to compare with Google Nexus KK vs Sony Xperia KK

I would also prefer SONY´s existing UI in Android 4.3 as well as I get used to it since weeks.
Let´s wait and see, what 4.4 brings us next when SONY releases Kitkat. As of now, I´m totally pleased with 4.3 SONY UI.
