LOL....like your style.
Nobody has ever reviewed the Note 3 or the Z1, but you already know that in terms of software, audio quality, speakers and camera performance which one is the best.

I hate to burst your bubble but battery benchmarks in any device using the Snapdragon 800 have been nothing better than ordinary.

Everyone is trying to copy the HTC One, including the "One" name. What a shame!

What?!? Who is copying the HTC One's name? The Samsung Galaxy Note III, the Sony Xperia Z1, the LG G2, the Samsung Galaxy S IV & the Apple iPhone 5.

"One" name...... What in this Earth are you talking about...Willis?!?!? lol

None of them really impress me. But the GS4 is the most well rounded.

Oops, look like you made a typo. Xperia Z1 < Note 3.

There you go.

He probably like Z1 more because it's suits him better just like you prefer note 3 .
Xperia Z1 no way inferior to note 3

Well technically it does have less ram. ;) But the IP58 cert is kinda a big deal. And touchwiz. Ouch.

Z1 display is too small for the size of the phone, almost the overall size of the note III without the giant screen benefit, also capacitive buttons >> on-screen buttons, s-pen is perfect for multiple tasks (like drawing and web browsing) and unless you have a pool at home IP58 is as innovating and useful as 4k video recording

Z1 hands down. Thought Note 3 is a phablet?

What qualifies as a phone?

z1 is barely smaller than the note 3 because of its huge bezel. z1 is almost phablet it self even though it has a much smaller 5'' screen.

Then by your logic Xperia Z Ultra is a tablet.

With bezels like the Z1 you might as well call it a phablet.
