Doesn't impressed me to replace my current Z2. But Z3 Compact is the best and most practical launch of September 2014.

Throw it to my hands, I'll take good care of it. I can trade it for the Z4 next year, so give me that focking phone!

I hope the next gen would have smaller top and bottom bezel and keeps the Z2's style Dual speaker. Z3's speaker looks too, popping out

..and I was worried when the Z3 screen panel was leaked. Thought it wasn't "Sony-esque" enough. Boy was I wrong... the Z3 looks more elegant than the Z2 in any way.

and "xsqueeze" me .. I expect Sony to start with 32gb for the next flagship! I m trying to be loyal here, dear Sony. Don't give me a reason to be unfaithful.

PC Magazine says the Z3v coming to Verizon is 32GB and supports wireless charging.

I reckon the whole point of the new model is US compliance and engineering of the hardware to house dual sims. Somethings the Z2 slipped up on to launch in certain regions.

Sigh... Why do Sony have to put buttons and ports in such strange places? Can't they have a power button at the top of the right edge rather than in the middle where you have to stretch your finger to get to it, and the headphone port on the bottom so you can put it upside down in your pocket like you usually do, and the USB port on the bottom rather than sticking out of the side? They may be fairly small niggles but they annoy me greatly.
