A Sony rep in The Verge's hands-on explained that it's size is due to the camera.

I guess I'm the only one who thinks its a fugly looking phone. Its a beast spec wise and I wouldn't consider not getting it if I needed a new phone, but it doesn't look comfortable to hold being elongated with sharper corners.

Dude quit being such a flamming fanboy and grow up. People get hard ons everytime flagship phones are released, then get all butthurt if people dont like everything about it.

Everyone doesnt agree that its a "sexy" looking phone. I'm entitled to my opinion and I think it's fugly and uncomfortable.

In my opinion it is not ugly, but bulky for sure. :(

I would think it has something to deal with it's camera as well as it being a waterproof device. You want to keep the internals as far away from the outside of the phone as possible so that the chances of moisture somehow getting in and ruining the device are low.

Wasn't the z water proof enough for normal people with normal uses.Lets admit it, Would have been better if the Z1's weight and size should have been in line with the Z

There's a lot of dead space on that.. Come on Sony look at the LG/Samsung they put as much screen as possible without making the device bigger.. Still a nice phone

Urrgh...

That's a lot of bezel for a 5inch Android, not only that, it's bigger than a G2 and at 169g quite hefty, and it's arriving with Android4.2 instead of 4.3.

Bring on the excuses about the 1st half 2014 Sony flagship being the 'Real deal'.

It houses a 3000 mAh battery though + an all glass n metal body (not PLASTIC). And GSMArena says it'll arrive with 4.3 on board. Whom to believe? :S
