Sony Xperia Z is much better looking

I'm not a sammy boy,in fact my favourite android phone is the HTC One,but it makes me laugh when I see some comments like yours.
Tell me why does Xperia Z is better than S4 or HTC One?Give me some arguments.
In fact,Xperia Z has alot of flaws with its display.It also has alot of lag because of the buggy UI and the Snapdragon Pro is a 2012 SoC which is inferior to the S600.Stop fanboism!

Jeez, for crying out loud! Have you actually used the Xperia Z? I doubt it otherwise you would not making such sweeping statements. I can assure you the screen is anything but washed out and I am busy loading films on to it for viewing. Build quality, Screen, camera all superb. Also getting the HTC One as I could not really choose and need 2 phones (means I get variety instead of two of the same). This way I have the best of both worlds as the build quality of the HTC One is also premium and probably better than the XZ. As far as I am concerne, I shall be in the possession of the two best phones by Friday 15 March when my One arrives. I have always liked the option of flipping from one phone to the other.
After problems experienced with the build quality of my S3 and even worse and more importantly the seriously appalling customer service/support, Samsung simply does not exist for me!

i'm here so what?? we love the technology beneath the body.. and the design looks okay for me... and i bet it still & will selling like hot cakes.. so what boy??
56. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
I have no problems with this phone at all :)
It obviously has the metal frame, bigger full hd OLED screen, larger battery (with that thicker profile )
Also has the expandable memory, BEST software, best processor, probably the best 13MP camera..
Overall, it beats the One and Z easily and thoroughly
96. pyradark (Posts: 784; Member since: 10 Jun 2012)
I already expect this phone to get 9.3 ratings but let see with the sales!! Hahaha
108. TMach (Posts: 387; Member since: 29 Dec 2011)
Metal frame? You mean the plastic part that is made to look like metal but is prone to cracking if this is similar to the S3?
86. GALAXY-STORM (Posts: 328; Member since: 13 Oct 2012)
Right here, got to sell 100m of them.

If this is SG4....then i am in bad dream...........
37. Adithya7184 (Posts: 317; Member since: 05 Mar 2011)
seems real deal.........if you compare it to teaser video, phone in this video has highest brightness when it boots and the same happens when the boy in the teaser video, opens that unpacked box....
So, this time Samsung failed to protect S4
41. pwnarena (Posts: 977; Member since: 15 Feb 2013)
i bet non-samsung fans are rejoicing over this. samsung doing the apple way of keeping design. i really have to agree that it looks ugly. the earlier leaked/rendered images look better especially the black and white ones with not so rounded edges.
45. nlbates66 (Posts: 314; Member since: 15 Aug 2012)
i'm fine if it's still plastic, but with all the hoopla that Samsung are doing with their ads, one would hope they have something better than just an S III with a larger display and faster CPU+GPU (remember things like smart scroll and the like are already getting backported to the S III anyway, and even if Samsung don't do that, open developers will.
53. YaBoiDre10 (Posts: 84; Member since: 15 Nov 2012)
I just can't see the hype in the Sony Xperia Z. The specs are nice but as far as design goes it looks basic. A square block with a volume rocker and a power button. Besides almost every Sony Xperia device that comes out it ALWAYS has problems, can't say this much about Samsung phones.
73. Esf_Kid (Posts: 49; Member since: 28 Feb 2013)
that's because you understand nothing from designing and aesthetics.
Sony designs were and are among the best designs ever.
there was a poll in the very site which proved it.
im not a fanboy of Sony but as far as i experienced almost every brand, i think that Sony designs are exceptional.
55. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
I LOVE this design :)
It keeps the same size as the s3, but cuts the bezel from side and the bottom, adding the bigger screen AND ALUMINIUM frame for better durability.
Also, big lens on the back looks like a serious take on the camera quality.
One who wants a full aluminium phone will easily be able to buy a metal back cover
77. feres13 (Posts: 306; Member since: 23 Dec 2011)
I Bet it's not an aluminium frame, just like the Galaxy S3's faux-aluminium side, and the ATIV S's faux aluminium back.
57. rodkurt (Posts: 128; Member since: 29 Nov 2012)
looks like the same freaking design as s III....if this is really legit we expect Samsung to loose some of it's costumers...
62. terry_wil (Posts: 4; Member since: 12 Mar 2013)
looks or performance/features ...... yea samsung over htc for me
64. feres13 (Posts: 306; Member since: 23 Dec 2011)
WAY TOO BIG, why can't anybody make a high-end 4.3" phone anymore. Thank god HTC sticked with 4.7" isntead of 5". It's a step in the right direction.
And it's UGLY.I don't ask samsung to do a aluminium unibody since it's just impossible for them to make one (even the ATIV S is just faux-metal); but at least get rid of the slippery shinny fingerpirnt magnet ugly faux-textured glossy "Hyperglase" crap, make it AT LEAST Matte.
Nowdays i don't care if a smartphone has an octacore chip with 4GB of ram, The S600 is already verry powerful, all i care about is battery life (well at least in the S4 you can swap batteries), design, and multimedia capabilities ( screen, speakers, camera...) and HTC got the 2 last categories.
And touchwizz is still ugly, from what i've seen from the HTC One, Sense 5 looks like a bit different version of stock android (it's got the HALO UI), while Touchwiz looks like android 2.x.
Can samsung hire software designers for both hardware and software??
And Smasung needs at least 32 GB of built-in storage, a micro SD slot isn't an excuse for a 16GB version, you can't install apps and games on it, and games nowdays are really heavy, especially with the upcoming 1080p phones.
And if this is pentile again, i'll have one big laugh.
HTC One, you're the One.

4.3 inch? It was way too small for touching experience & usage.
4.7 inch was the best size, but not the 4.3 inch/
75. feres13 (Posts: 306; Member since: 23 Dec 2011)
That's just my opinion, one handed operation is important to me, but i could live with 4.7", NOT with 5". I own a nexus 4 right now, and if i needed something bigger i'll just use my iPad mini witch is always with me,
65. manishbatra (Posts: 2; Member since: 18 Feb 2013)
Again same design s3 then note then note2 then grand I dont think so its s4 Samsung can't do mistake like this now we want some new design. ......
66. imkyle (Posts: 1023; Member since: 18 Nov 2010)
There is going to be ZERO surprises when this thing launches in two days.
67. zeli007 (Posts: 7; Member since: 03 Nov 2012)
This cant be it !!! Plastic again? Shape of the "Back in the future"? Are u kidding me?
70. Andrewtst (Posts: 379; Member since: 25 Jan 2009)
If this was S4, I am pretty sure 100% won't buy it, and go for HTC One, even Xperia Z look much much better than this.
72. zeli007 (Posts: 7; Member since: 03 Nov 2012)
Looks like I am stuck with my iphone 5 forever :-((((
101. bojan (Posts: 188; Member since: 06 Oct 2012)

You still have many choices, for example : Xperia Z, HTC One, Ascend P2, Z10 etc.

S3 looks way better than this ....samsung making mistake
85. feres13 (Posts: 306; Member since: 23 Dec 2011)
HATE THE STUPID WATER SOUNDS; SERIOUSLY SAMMY??????
87. JunitoNH (Posts: 987; Member since: 15 Feb 2012)
Yup, believe is the real thing, 'cause looks like another ugly design by Samsung; you have to give it to them, they are consistent.
89. sunny131089 (Posts: 22; Member since: 05 Mar 2013)
I m loving thiss from wow the nxt squarish design will b awesome to hey i m happy with whats beneath the plasticc n i love d internals.....these s4 posts bring out some deep human studies each day....pls continue:-)
91. Guest_star (Posts: 231; Member since: 30 Dec 2011)
But what about the screen, is it AMOLED or LCD, I mean UI is white all over and a nice white for that matter at last it looks nice because there is nothing to compare it with, but still it is white UI and that is not common for Samsung phones...oh yea and the blacks are deep on the startscreen so it may well be AMOLED but if it is the whites are great
92. choybrwn22 (Posts: 10; Member since: 08 Jul 2011)
funny how they b bashing samsung for using plastic n say its cheap looking but i yet havent seen a smartphone series not made of plastic sell over a 100 million units in the last 2 years *leaves page*
102. toxic (Posts: 11; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
antutu bench mark test is impressive at 26,000, dont think theres anouther phone that can beeat the score, but can the battery last as long with 8cores, powerfull phone, looks like the s3
106. TheKookiemonster007 (Posts: 12; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)
Well samsung s doing the apple trick , no new design just faster and thinner :/
109. shamataa (Posts: 202; Member since: 07 Dec 2011)
Looks like the GS 3. I really hope its fake than.
112. pritam.paul.360 (Posts: 12; Member since: 14 Feb 2013)
i used the galaxy s3 for just over 4 months. then I sold it cause i really became sick of it's annoying design. although it looked fine at first, but after using it for quite some time I really started to hate the design and build of the gs3. i was expecting a lot from the galaxy s4. an unique design & aluminium build especially. but these looks to be the real gs4's shots! looking at those pics, man........! :( :( :(
fine Samsung. you go your own way then. i'll go with the 64gb white HTC One....
115. NokiaFTW (Posts: 2058; Member since: 24 Oct 2012)
This looks better than the S3 , but nothing exciting !
117. choybrwn22 (Posts: 10; Member since: 08 Jul 2011)
that could b the rumored s3 upgrade...if wa the s4 where is the model number at the start up?all samsung phones displays the model number n the name of the phone at boot up after the samsung display no matter which carrier didnt see tht in the vid..plus if plastic was an issue the s3 wont b in the hands of over 30 millon ppl world wide
120. BabylonShine (Posts: 25; Member since: 08 Feb 2013)
