Sony Xperia Z4 benchmark run spills the beans: 5.1" display, Snapdragon 810, and 20MP camera

Literally minutes after we were tipped off to the existence of an LG G4 benchmark pass through GFXBench, we now received word that the other major flagship in the making, the Sony Xperia Z4, has suffered a similar fate...

It's all down to personal preference...I actually quite like the design of the S6, I've owned both an M8 and a Z2 in the last year and actually really liked them both. I do think though that every previous galaxy phone has been crying out for a premium feel (I owned an S3 and was really disappointed with the S4), they've finally listened to people, but, £760 for the S6 edge, no SD card slot and no major re-design of their horrible touchwiz software has put me off it. I think Samsung are trying to go down the Apple business model route and, frankly, I can't stand Apple...

So you meant majority of people who support it aren't as smart as you to judge which phone is a good looking one? Come on, dude don't be too biased toward Samsung.

Yes, the previous galaxy series is ugly. You're getting too sensitive with sammy again. Don't base device performance by their sales. Marketing is a very manipulative place and doesn't always reflect the quality of products.

Man, you are just too biased when it comes to Samsung. Like it or not you gotta admit it that Galaxy phones are better than Xeria in every aspects. Sony has almost no improvement in the last few years. Even in TV section, Sony still got beaten by LG and Samsung. Stop being a worshiper of a company that has stayed behind others already, and if you don;t strike against their fault, they won't change it at all.

Really? I owned HTC One X, One M7, LG G2,iPhone 5S and Lumia 830. I'm not fanboy of any company. LOL Don't call me S-Sheep cuz I never bought any Samsung phones but hey, at least that company bring something new with their S6 and S6 edge. What about your beloved Sony? Meh?

...And now Galaxy S6 looks like Sony too... Shouldn't you be complaining about this too then? Every time Samsung decides to update their design, they just choose a competitor to copy.

Does the Sony Z also looks like the iPhone 4? Nexus 4? LG Optimus G? And every other phone that had a back glass panel that cane out before the Sony Z? If you really feel that the S6 looks like a Sony Z, maybe you should trade your eye balls for meat balls, they ll be a good decoration for your empty head.

How about your head? Should I say iPhone 4 got its pretty glass from 2009 Sony walkman X ? Xperia Z series glass design is based on Sony's own 2009 device, it has nothing to do with iphone 4.

Can you point out how the S6 look like the Z3 or any Xperia series? Oh maybe you meant the back glass and metal chassis? Since when did Sony invent those 2 materials?

There are HTC users who doesn't complain with M9's look. Let sammy and apple do the fashion statement wars, as long as it doesn't look like sammy's old freezer design and have good performance, it's fine.

5.1 inch? But the Z2, and Z3 have 5.2 inches. Why go back?

I agree with you. 5.1 inch doesn't make senseto me.

Oddly enough, the Z3 was listed to be 5.15 inches on benchmarks, but was then commercialised to 5.2, when rumours of it first came out. Could it be the same with the Z4?

Hopefully the SD810 is working this time. No overly aggressive throttling under high load like the One M9, better calibrated display (high quality IPS NEO or OLED), class leading battery life like every 2014 Xperia before it, mature camera software and full resolution Superior Auto and HDR as suggested by the IMX230's new image signal processor.

Sorry mate if they use 810 the battery will last like less than the m9, they have to use the 808 if they like to get good battery

Samsung won't sell their chips to any of the main competitors.

I am waiting for Z4 to see with what I will replace my old Z1. If they keep the excellent battery life and camera is on par with S6 then I will go for Z4 because waterproof and front stereo speakers are a big plus for me personally. But if Sony fails in any of that then I will go for S6 edge or maybe the older Z3 because atm it's 420 euro cheaper :)

Not going to happen if they use the 810 the htc got a bigger battery and it's crap

Sony marketing sucks. So what set aside z4 with the rest of the flagships this year? The first android phone to adopt USB type C waterproof port or the first android phone to adopt DTV ISDB-T module or the first phone to come with 3 days battery. Commin Sony, bring us something that HTC, LG and Samsung run for their money.
