Its pity that so many people cheers for Sony, yet nobody actually buys them. I bet amilcarmz dont even have Sony either!

paid maybe? fansboy don't actually buy it just poisoning others to join them, so they can share their pains while using sony's greatest expensive smartphone. or maybe they just love the logo

2013 already has its best. Note 3 won't be the best, maybe if you like tablets.

It's a phablet. Don't worry they haven't ignored the small handed minority—HTC One Mini and S4 mini are for viable options. Rest of us can enjoy the real flagship: Note III.

Honami mini. a true beast for small handed people or for the people who prefer small screen sized phone.

You're so dumb phone with a reasonable size sold more than all phablet combined. So phablets user is the real minority. The majority of people in the world will enjoy Honami, Iphone 5/5S, S4, G2, Moto X, One, Lumia or even N5.

Dimwit. A 5" phone isn't much smaller than the Note 3. Most small handed people opt for 4.3-4.5" phones. Most of the phones u mentioned dont fall into that category. Hence, the small minority IS the S4 mini/Honami mini etc.

Two phones announced on 4th September. One is on course to be the best phone ever (until its diverted by the maker from its path) and the other carries a 'S-Pen'

Are you talking about Nokia and Samsung here, cause aside from the HTC One Max the rest to put it bluntly, are an utter borefest. Oh wait...Sony are going to be there...looks like you won't be needing them sleeping pills then :D

HTC ONE MAX better provide pen capabilities or else its just a huge version of HTC ONE, which is gonna be a borefest.

Too many dummy companies thinking that they need to market and have their own shows to be successful these days. HTC and LG just wasted a boatload of money having their own show for the HTC One and LG G2 respectively when HTC could have used MWC and LG could have used IFA to a much greater effect. These shows are beginning to become meh thanks to Stupid thinking like that. When will these companies learn that there is a lot more that goes into Samsung and Apples success than marketing. Those idiots should be fired making their own show when they have no clout yet. Only Sony realizes that CES and IFA work just better for middle tier companies and they can slowly build momentum until having their own show makes sense. Lets hope Asus and Huawei don't get any stupid ideas like that and ruin these shows forever.

This will surely be an interesting event. I guess, most of the people might be awaiting for announcements from Samsung & Sony. And i believe they both will come-up quite strongly to serve people's demand.

2013's best was already announced like 2 weeks ago, the G2. None of these phones even matter. especially the Note 3 haha

Ofcourse Z1 (Honami) first and then Note 3 (Phablet) and Lumia 1520 (Bandit).
