T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z hands-on

Frankly, this a gorgeous looking smartphone crafted from quality materials to show that water resistant phones can be stylish. Sporting some hard lines, it’s a little funky trying to hold the handset with our hands, mainly because of the sharp 90-degree angles of its bezel. Regardless of that...

The corners are too sharp and make it uncomfortable to hold, the screen has terrible viewing angles and little contrast, and Samsung did a much better job with the software for the Exmor RS sensor than Sony did. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it for anyone other than someone who is very clumsy and/or goes outdoors a lot, but even then I would suggest something else first.

Galaxy S4 Active comes to mind but is only for AT&T. And as for the viewing angles, they've gotten better after the update but the blacks appear dark greyish still... Super AMOLED is the way to go.

Is there any difference from the original model?

Its an old flagship phone ... Xperia ultra , now that's newsworthy

Okay, BUT will this TMOBILE version run on TMOBILE's 3G/4G/4G LTE network? I know the international version of this phone would only get 2G in the US ( maybe 3G on At&t )...

Yes, isn't the answer to that obvious? Why would T-Mobile release a flagship phone for their own network that isn't optimized to all of their cellular networks?

What's the difference with off contract Xperia Z?
if there's nothing new but the carrier itself, why review?
otherwise... You don't say? (Nick Cage face)
