That’s it! After months of hopes, whispers and leaks, it’s all come true - the Samsung Galaxy Note III is here and the Sony Xperia Z1 has also arrived in its full cameraphone glory…

It's between the Samsung Galaxy Note III & the Sony Xperia Z1. The Sony can literally survive sh*t the Samsung would succumb to.

To me the Sony wins by a hair. If the Note III is a 99.9 the Xperia Z1 is a 99.91 because it can survive anything, BUT the Note III has it on looks, style & beauty.

I REALLY want the Samsung Galaxy Note III & I am going to get it, but I am trying to be unbiased here. I am looking at the overall "BIG" picture.

That's exactly what I thought, too. We haven't had the chance to put those unreleased phones through their paces so all we're going off are the specs and limited hands-on reviews. Ask this question in a month.

This is an invalid poll..

Create a poll for 2nd best device, coz we already know that Note 3 is in a league of it's own. FACT.

Poll: Which is the 2nd best device (we already know Note 3 is best)??

S4 or G2 would win.

S4 is doing bad based on these polls. In fact people have been choosing the Htc One as the better phone. So i bet it'd be the Z1 or G2 since they were just announced

Battery, Android 4.3 out of the box, display, size, design, accessories, and believe it or not, S-Pen. As a college student, that's a pro in my book.

Battery: 200mAh more than Z1 with 0.7 inch bigger screen. (now you see the reason for those bezels.)
Android 4.3: full of bugs.
Display: no difference. both have great displays.
Design: LOL!
Accessories: check out Sonymobile site to see which one supports more accessories.
S-Pen: Definitely a great feature but not for everybody.
You forgot 3GB RAM which i think is the best thing Sammy could bring with Note3.
now whats your idea about these:
better camera, better audio quality(with regard of that huge speaker), waay better design and build quality. water and dust proof.
GSMA says it comes with android 4.3!

Battery - Quoted to be 30-50% more than on the Note II, which lasted over 14 hours on a single charge
Android 4.3 - Not full of bugs
Display - Personal preference = Super AMOLED
Design - Note 3 --- The Z1 is so damn boring and plain
Accessories - Note 3
RAM - Note 3
Audio quality - Note 3
Camera - Z1
Speakers - Note 3

Note 3 is winning all around in my book.

Again without support...
you're not the one to argue with.
you need some good professors to become more logical.
