3rd for Smartphone, Super YES!!!
Congrats Sony, cant wait to buy the Z once the price comes down a bit!
Also still waiting for the 4.2 update, hoping it brings new things and more improvement
especially on the screen color and contrast and camera software.

I hope the upgrade comes with bravia engine turned on all the time, not only videos and pictures.. That would increase the screen color and contrast of the screen

soo many thumb down for a nice comment.
accoding to" Samsung used college students in the area and had them go online, pretending to be disgruntled HTC device owners"
i guess many phonearena users are supported by Samsung to under valuate other phones such as Sony or HtC phone.
good job jokers
sr for bad grammar

Look yourself first

What makes you think they are samsung fanboys?
Could they be nokia,htc,apple,lg fanboys?

You just mentioned some kind of people you dont like but actually you are the one of them in different brand name.
As long as i know, in PA there are less sammy fanboys than the others..thats for sure

Sony, my xperia S is still waiting for its 4.1 update. Just hope that the same treatment don't happen with the Z later on.

So true Sony never again, with Sony once a new model is out all the older ones no longer exist!

The xperia E will probably get Key Lime pie before the Z as the J did before the S, non-existent updates!

Sony Xperia Z is my 1st Sony Android smartphone! :D I just too love it even though it was not pack with latest CPU and not having the greatest viewing angle panel.

But it was damn solid, smooth and stable. The screen was actually well nice also even the viewing angle not good.

don't judge soon
android 4.1.2 is the latest version right now and there is no device with 4.2.2 in the market. even htc One which will be released in a week has the same version. i think they will upgrade it by the time S4 is in the market with its latest android version.
but i agree they didn't perform well regarding XS

Nice to know your happy to wait an eternity for updates but when the the gs3 which was released at a similar time to the S and got Jelly Bean it in October, the gs2 which was released two years ago got it in March and all of Moterola and HTC's flagships have got by know It's not that hard to understand why I won't buy another Sony and why I recommend to others not. How likely is it that this will happen again?

All they are doing is ensuring few go from the s to another sony device. As said before first and last!

as far as I remember, there are alot of features and changes happen when a 2.3 upgrade to 4.0. means
more improvement will be involve for 4.2
so just wait or you can go with S4 the mighty plastic

Less viewing angle means more privacy, so it's a personal choice on that.
