I am sorry but this has to be one the BEST looking phone ever to grace the mobile world. The black is beautiful BUT that white one looks like a piece of art.

Also to be DUST & WATER proof up to 5 feet deep & to include a 20MP camera with no HUMP is a technological marvel.

Sony just dropped probably the BEST all around phone money can buy this fall. Sony just showed us in these pics what BOTH HTC & Samsung are up against this fall.

Sure the Xperia Z1 is not a phablet like the Samsung Galaxy Note III & HTC One Max but in the all around game of top BEAST phone of the fall the Sony Xperia Z1 looks like a Mike Tyson at the peak of his prime.

Samsung your Galaxy Note III HAS NO CHOICE but to be on point, if not I am going to be the first to say I am not going to buy your Note III.

The jury is still out. Let's see what the Samsung Galaxy Note III has to offer.

http://www.phonearena.com/news/Sony-teases-Xperia-Z1-aka-Honami-will-be-water-resistant-about-to-make-a-splash_id46691/comments/page/2

Can you explain how??
in camera? in sound? in durability? in screen? in beauty? or maybe in water resistance??
the only thing which is better in N3 is the bezel and of course its not important and it may cause some problems as well.
so, how is Note3 better than this one?
too many question marks!!

the thing that's going to make the note 3 better is.... marketing!

dont be so closed mind.
specs wise these 2 phones will be exactly same, only difference is the screen and camera, which we will only know from review if sony 20mp with one of best p&s camera imagine processor is better or not.
samsung will give option of replaceable battery. which is surely awesome.
samsung weakest point is same old design. and sony weakest point is 5' inch phone in 6' phone body.
make your call. i had gs3 so i dont want to get phone which will look same as my 2 year old phone. so im going with sony.

Note 3 is a phablet category device, so you just cannot compare this with note 3, so cut the differentiation crap of this device with note 3....

Hopefully "One Sony" means they're trying their hardest to get it everywhere.

The screen is just awesome! No more screamin' fanboys "SONY display sucks, etc.." Now they will scream "HUGE BEZEL".. Haters gonna hate indeed!

Im not a hater, I actually do not mind the viewing angles of older Sony's... My Acro S screen is great, but the bezels of this phone is a bigger concern than viewing angles.... at least in my opinion...

And if the Z1 Mini turn out to have a 4.3" screen or smaller (with on screen buttons) I will get this phone, but if the Mini have a bigger screen than that, I will definitely appreciate the smaller footprint

Well it does have a huge bezel!

doesn't take a hater to see that. The rage right now is super thin bezels and phones that are coming out NOW and aren't keeping up with the thin bezel race, are just looking dated from the get go.

My initial look at this design is that it looks decent, I like the beveled edges on the glass, but WAAAAAY too much bezel.

I'll stick with the Note 3.

"The rage right now is super thin bezels."

Thanks, LG marketing president McLTE! I'll get right on that!

Sorry to rain on your parade but the screen here looks awesome because these samples are mock ups from China and the screen is obviously a print. The real model wouldn't have the model name written on the screen.
But if the screen proves as good as on the Z Ultra, I won't complain.

You have a good eye there... I didn't notice the first time... but it makes sense, since it does not show any other screen, or any interaction even if the guys is touching it...

Anyway Triluminous does promises... so my complains wont be about the screen for sure... they will be in my comment down below

it's not about hating, just speaking the truth, Z1's bezels ruin it all... same with sung note 3, those ugly boring design is ruining everything... I don't understand why they always made half completed phone and release it to market....
