okay lets all be fair here. xperia z1 is awesome. the design is not new and inspiring just like the note 3. the thick bezels are a turn off but the 20mp camera is nice. Honestly speaking, i don't think any of the phones announced today can stand against the note 3. Its big but compact,its premium in an exclusive way. no metal back to scratch off. nice huge beautiful screen plus its got a magic stylus. i think sammy killed it here.

I'm so over getting excited about new internals stuffed inside the same old Samsung plastic shell.

And yet the iPhone 5c has a plastic shell also.....something is sounding like a broken record at phonearena....

The 5c is a budget/midrange phone. It's not the same as a flagship.

Plastic is better than glass? Call Waterford, we found the one guy who thinks that crazy thought.

Note 3 FTW? Obviously, it is the best phone ever, better than everything else
