The problem with sony is that the "SCREEN" is eating too much battery! Xperia Z1's "beefy" 3,000mAh battery is useless. That's why i didnt bought one. Because i also experienced it with my. Xperia Z and Xperia S. not impressed with sony atm.

What do you think about 'the supposed fingerprint sensor' of Nexus 5 ? Will it have some new functionalities (as compared to the apple one) ? And what are your expectations from the device from a geek pov ? :)

Hey Phone Arena, do you think that Google buying that company Flutter which specializes in gestures, has to do with the success of the GS4 and it's Air "gimmiks" (Which by my expirience are useful but battery eating). After all Google should feel worried that Samsung is becoming Android incarnate, blocking all other manufacturers.

Hopes for xperia z2: Compact size like Z if not ZL.Make it IP57 if this would reduce bezels and size. But same materials!!! They appear to be solid from the drop test video. Improved internal strength coz despite being solid externally, the phone did not boot after drop test. Lower bezels like LG G2.Reduce the bezels,man! Multi window mode and IR like S4.No need to exaggerate though! Stay simple like now! Expandable storage (Why I'm not buying the One) OIS camera.1080p @ 60fps Battery 4000mAh. Mp3 Fm radio transmitter like my old Nokia Still cannot find my perfect phone.Hope Sony(Z2) or HTC(One +) will make it.Can it be?

1. Why does Google persist with LG and Asus to make Nexus devices? 2. Why do OEMs keep making the same mistakes again and again? For example, Sony's phones have always been criticized for washed out displays and feeble loudspeakers, HTC's phones are known for lacking microSD slots and less than stellar battery capacities, Samsung's phones are mocked for cheap, plasticky feel. My point is, do all these OEMs are ignorant of their mistakes or simply don't care to correct their mistakes?
