The Xperia Z is a high end phone, this is a low to mid range phone, that's not a fair comparison at all

Another Samsung. And Sony makes their flagship water and dust-resistant too. Sammy just can't.

Specs are a bit outdated. But, I really like the look of the phone. Maybe with project butter, the 1ghz proc will be able to run the system smoothly.

So the main point is.. this device is far more robust and durable than Nokia 920.

everyone cries for a waterproof phone.. well there you go.. what do you expect from it ? quad core processor 2 gig ram super amoled/ bendable screen and a price tag of $200 !? the build quality alone makes it worth the buy for any one that doesn't know how to take care of a phone/construction workers and people who are always near water.
