poor review, it seems to be a rushed effort. Gsmarena gives more details and insights in its reviews...

This is by far the worst review i've seen for this phone so far. and yet it scored an 8.5 even though the reviewer is so damn biased. well that shows that this phone is something to look out for.
Besides every other reviews pointed out that the camera performs well at low lighting conditions and in normal conditions its still on among the top performers.

what a biased review. i think this phone deserves a minimum of 9 points. i read the review of GSMarena as well. that was much better and realistic than yours. SHAME

8.5 seems good enough considering that phone doesn't offer a pleasing image and video quality compared with the competition but then again, the output produced depends on personal preference. Don't judge the phone based on the rating since we all have our own opinions, try the phone out yourselves first then you decide

Easy to say. You didn't even use it. Phones like Iphones can be easily judged without even being used.

BAD 13 MP CAMERA FROM SONY! SHAME ON SONY COMPANY!

LG Optimus G Pro is the BEST FLAGSHIP PHONE FOR THIS 1Q-2Q of 2013!

what a joke!
no one even pays attention to LG. the fact is the name of LG isn't big enough to compete with those brands like Sony, Apple and Sammy.

For all those who said sony Z have an old processor and stuff, check the gsmarena review...its tops on everything....and YES..its compared with Oppo Find5,nexus4,l S3 and OneX...

Thats called optimisation....Sony dominates in that area...Understand...

It doesn't matter how well you optimize it, you can't squeeze water out of a rock. Old is old.

Hey Ray you should try the Battery Stamina mode again. It actually works by letting you choose which functions you want to turn off and lets you select which apps you want to keep running in the background when the screen is turned off.

Here's a video from Sony showing how it works:

While the other brands like Samsung and HTC have yet to confirm their next flagships, why don't we sit back and wait for them, then only start judging whether this review is anything fair to SONY or not?

I would'nt say PhoneArena or any of the author here is biased, SONY was in the silence for quite some times, and now they have risen, of course they would expect the phone to be as great as promoted in their videos, I am a SONY's fan, I cannot judge how disappointing is the camera quality, but if it's just on par with others' flagship camera, then it's a little turn down to me. Because I expect more from SONY.

I wont say biased either..i say he didnt do his homework well...he didnt study the phne well..he didnt bother to mention the key features of Z..

Superior auto..
Burst mode...(Do u know Z can take 999+ photos in 64 seconds)
Bravia engine 2

Gsm aena made a preview of 9 pages and it covered almost everything in detail...thats what makes me mad...

I wish they would have covered what one does when the battery needs to be changed. Does one send it to a service depot? Will it be removable by the techie crowd?

To my way of thinking, this is where Samsung has an edge - there are many extended battery and battery/case options.

It sounds as though this will be another high-end phone that gives an enthusiast-type user about a day on the battery, if they are fortunate.
