A 5-inch Triluminos display with X-Reality engine for mobile, an IP55/58 certified body promising water and dust resistance, and the latest, most powerful Snapdragon 800...

The only Nokia's pride is their big sensor (2/3"). Sony can put their 2/3" or 1" into their phone if they want to. This Z1 has only 1/2.3" sensor. Wait until Sony put their 2/3" or bigger sensors. It will blow the lumia 1020 out of the water.

First review of Sony Z1 in:
reviews.cnet.co.uk/mobile-phones/sony-xperia-z1-re​view-50012187/

And heres THE review of Lumia 1020 since you mention it:
connect.dpreview.com/post/5234892048/nokia-lumia-1​020-camera-review?utm_campaign=internal-link&utm_s​ource=news-list&utm_medium=text&ref=title_0_44?new​s

DPreview will review the Sony Z1 in a few days. They are the ones I trust most, so will be exiting.

But from the first review from CNet things does not look good for Sony Z1 (at least camera wise)... Too bad, I had hopes...

Bahaha, so Sony wants us to trust a test that was designed and set up by Sony, to prove that a Sony cameraphone is the best in the world. Rrrright.

In my opinion Sony Xperia Z1 is the best smartphone (at least for today).

The only thing it has on other smart phones is the camera, everything else is lacking imo.

First off, 1020 runs a different OS that doesn\'t need bleeding edge specs to operate you troll. Two, stop being butthurt over my comment. Z1 only excels with the G Lens that can\'t even beat the 1020. \"World\'s leading camera phone\" is a marketing strategy that they\'re using to elevate sales.

Design, UI, support and display (preference on Super AMOLED).

"First off, 1020 runs a different OS that doesn\'t need bleeding edge specs to operate you troll."

Poor excuse!

Good specs are required not only for OS but for applications and games which are running on OS. Talking about the games and WP, there already was inconveniences because of small amount of RAM memory in WP devices. Also higher specs means that there is bigger chance that your device will be updated to the newer OS in the future (or less "fragmentation" due weak hardware).

He can't. Samsung fanboys; can't blame them.

Though i'm glad Sony's support is great. Luckly, the Xperia Z have gotten the 4.2 update before the HTC One and Sony's UI is way lighter compared to the bloated Samsung UI.

I checked display myself.. same quality... only phone with better display quality was htc one and LG G2... and both are LCD. not AMOLED... Designs are personal choices.. there is nothing like better ... It is just being Racist.... I have used lots of sony and nokia devices...customer support is good for both.. If you mean app support then u must be being sarcastic

Please explain to me how your comment applies to the iPhone series, especially when the iPhone 4S only has 512MB of RAM.

all those reasons subjective to your opinion...

Give factual reasons that are truly objective, based on proof and comparison and you will gain a bit of respect on your comments

I personally think that the size of the phone is not for me... but it is my opinion, not a reason to disqulify the phone in terms of good or bad

Uh no. Support as in being offered on multiple carriers. T-Mobile is the only carrier in the US that offers the Xperia Z. Why?

Yes design is a user preference, which I should have stated more clearly. And as far as display goes, the S4 has a better display than the One because I love the over saturated colors, especially when playing games and watching videos/movies.

Being racist lol. +1

do u really hear? or u close ur ears? he said sony z1 is the best phone in the world and he is totally right!! love it or hate it no one care for ur opinion, nor ur funny stupid reasons, as a device... its the best...

better than all others by: best hardware in the market, best camera in the market, best water and dust proof device, best material used to build it, and best design as its not copied or became boring like galaxy soap design, or LG designs copied from Samsung, and the best because its not another plastic crap toy.. got it?

Don't know if you're trying to troll or actually being serious...

Best phone in the world is a opinion genius. Can you hear or are you closed ears?

Best hardware on the market - Note 3 has better specs
Best camera on the market - 1020
Best water/dust proof - Z1
Best material used - Glass? Lol no thanks. iPhone 5 would be more durable than the Z1
Z1 design is completely plain and derived from the Z. Nothing fancy about it. It's a rectangular glass phone and nothing more. Every OEM copies other OEMs. Can I say Sony copied Apple with the choice of using glass for their phones?

It's great that you have opinions, but when you try to make them sound like facts, you comment becomes invalid. Got it?

i wonder who\'s comment is more invalid?
seriously, im so done with your trolls
Z1 excels in almost all aspect, if not all
i\'m not saying Z1 has the best screen or best camera, but rather the overall score. You see, not every OEM have produced a all rounded device. at least for now, Sony is approaching with Z1

dont talk about subjective matters like design, and it is not necessary for a good design to be complex.

So true; The Z1 is the only phone which is as premium as an iPhone, as fast as the fastest Samsung or LG, with a camera that is probably also the best, with unique to Sony (amongst mainstream phones)protection from water and dust... All other competitors lack something; eg. the LG can be as good in most aspects, even surpassing the Z1 is some areas (maybe) but it looks cheap again. There is no other phone which can satisfy in equal measure the casual user, the demanding person who wants quality design or the geek who wants the best in technology.

But best device is not the one that excels in one aspect but the one that manages to be almost best in every aspect. And to this the Z1 is really unique... It doesn\'t matter if the screen is second best to the G2 or the camera proves second best to the 1020. The entire picture is what makes the best device. All other competitors have something missing.

troll??? looks like u r a big sony hater, u feel it will pass ur company so u r trying to change the reality which is so shiny!! I will teach u few facts so u learn something:

Best hardware on the market - (Note 3 has better specs)!! better by what? same hardware with the Z1, if u say 3gb ram, I say 20 MP which is more important, plus Note 3 is a phablet not a phone which im talking about here..

Best camera on the market - (1020) !!! looks like u was sleeping the whole day, we all see the samples of Z1 which crash 1020, so u r wrong again go check the photos..

Best water/dust proof - (Z1) sure because other new flagships don't even know this feature!!

Best material used - (Glass? Lol no thanks. iPhone 5 would be more durable than the Z1)!!! really? I phone easily scratch in crazy way, plus we r talking about best new flagship introduce, do u really consider iphone as a flagship? and its not better than Z1 materials by any means, go check the video of the metal frame made for Z1, its full piece modeled in amazing way.. which is so powerful.. other new flagships very cheap plastic so glass will be so good here..

about the design, u say its plane!! but most of people agree its very unique and luxury look, especially with the new frame, so I can't convince u if u have bad taste...

what ever u try to say, u can't deny there is better advantages in Z1 than others flagships so its the best for any one try to think and decide..
