Oh, Sony, oh Xperia! How good it is to see an old player return to the big game with a bang. The Xperia Z, announced at CES 2013, turned out the be the most-intriguing smartphone at the whole expo, although that wasn't really hard to achieve, considering the complete lack of competition...

Ascension of Sony is what we aspire. Sony is like.no.other when it's abot Quality and Design. As the company is now in the unfortunate situation forgetting its grandeur will be inhumane.

I don't care if other phones that come out will have better specs. Build quality, water and dust resistant. Perfect for OCD people like me who hates dust getting inside. I'm sold on the water resistance and glass body.

The xperia is the most complete 5 incher presently. Quad core S4, 2GB RAM, relatively big battery and 13mp camera.

This phone doesn't need to compete with the S4.
Sony just needs to build up steam steadily and sell 10-15M Xperia phones per quarter.. and it will. (Sony's internal sales projections are along those numbers also )
Even though the S4 will be superior in terms of specs, the Zed is good enough to warrant a happy and satisfied customer.
It should have a decent battery life, and the processor is plenty fast and future proof for the next 18 months at least

Every spec is fine. But again like every year they are gonna lose it in the processor fight. They were single core when everybody else was dual-core(2011), dual-core when quad-core was norm(2012) and now they are quad-core when samsung coming out with a eight-core processor.

Considering that the phone market has their own expo, or rather, several, phones aren’t usually the feature at CES. Samsung’s OLED flexible screen is still a pipe dream though and Sony has a real phone to look at. The most exciting part about this new Xperia though is the HD screen. If I get a Z, when I watch TV using my DISH Sling Adapter and DISH Remote Access app, I will have the best possible picture. I watch a lot of TV and my DISH coworker and I like to take advantage of our breaks and lunch to catch up on shows we would miss because we have such a busy home life.

When it's rolling anything is nothing to Sony. See the history. It will again be the most trusted Electronics brand.

It's pretty f***ing clear phonearena does think much of the xperia. It has yet to give Sony full credit for the xperia range. In reviews they comment how good the specs are but knock them back in the same sentence. I have a xperia SL after my iPhone bored the hell out of me and can assure you that the camera is top top quality and amazing quality on really close shots. I'm not sure what these monkeys are giving reviews about how the cameras colour quality is poor?? Even in this article, this donkey says " it turned out to be the most intriguing phone, although there was a complete lack of competition" !!! So what they had rubber f***ing phones up against the xperia z??? Get a grip mate and pull your head from out of your arse and realise that Sony are producing top quality phones!!!
