And it looks sexy. I'd buy it for the looks only... but wait... Triluminos screen looks good, Snapdragon 800 is not bad either, the 20 Mpx camera is shaping up to be somewhere between the S4 and the Lumia 1020 in quality.... I'm definitely buying!

the last advertisement is pointless, they say honami has great camera and then install this lens camera on top as if the camera built in isnt good enough

? I think it's pretty obvious; Regardless of the quality of the inbuilt camera of a smartphone, the add-on lenses will offer better shooting quality that no smartphone can offer.

Really? Do you even own Xperia Z? I own it.. Worst display? LOL. The display is great, sharp and perfect for watching movies because of its color accuracy. It's true that the viewing angles aren't great but who looks at their phones from sideways? Worst Camera? You are completely ignorant. I've tested the camera against so many handsets. The camera of Xperia Z is able to outperform many 8MP shooters (such as Samsung Galaxy S3, iphone 4s, Xperia Arc, etc) and even a couple of 12MP shooters such as Xperia S. But yes, the camera of Xperia Z still loses against that of galaxy s4. So, saying Xperia Z has the worst cam is completely ignorant of you Typical Sony haters that knows nothing..

In what aspects? Screen? Yes htc one's super lcd 3 is better. But i'm not quite a fan of super amoled though Camera? I already said it before, xperia z was able to outperform htc one's ultrapixel many 8MP shooters. BUT IT STILL CAN'T BEAT SAMSUNG GALAXY S4'S CAMERA!

the xperia z was announced to be a competitor to the iphone 5 and galaxy s3. that was what sony said so it is rightfully being compared to those older devices. call it late but it's definitely not meant to fare well against the newer flagships.
