Is Samsung the only OEM to change up the design of their 2015 flagship? Sony, HTC and LG are all choosing to use and same ol design and its BORING!! I hate Samsung but I can already tell they are going to own 2015 in sales.

I think even Apple will have problem this year I.e. I think the s6 and the s6 edge big time the edge as the price will come down by spet and end iphone sales will be damaged by the edge, not pre orders when they 1st come out but when customers go into the shop and the edge is next to the iphone looking cool and the new iPhone looks the same as the 6' same old crap

I agree it will sell well but I think that Samsung eliminating the water resistance and microSD card from their flagship phone is going to bother a lot of people especially when they find out that it's going to cost $200 more to upgrade from the 32gb model to the 128gb model. Yes, I know Apple has the same price difference for their higher storage models but if you want a phone with iOS then you don't have any other choices but Apple and we know a lot of people will buy nothing but Apple. I have numerous choices for flagship Android phones and I'm not sure Samsung has the same brand loyalty as Apple. If Sony keeps the water resistance, microSD card slot, large built in battery and adds optical image stabilization to the main camera in Z4 then it will be at the top of my list assuming they keep it at more or less the same price point as the Z3.

I just want to know if the main camera in the Z4 will have optical image stabilization. I'm hoping it will.

If Sony hasn't fixed the crackling earpiece during phone calls, this phone is worthless to me.

Z4's rumors have been very inconsistent. I can't take them seriously until I see the real Z4

Maybe the QHD one will pop up in a while or something like that. I'm looking forward to the Z4 in the best condition.

Waterproof exposed usb is great, dont have to take a charging dock anymore. Hope it comes along with a z4 compact.

Decent specs, though the specs is bit same in the m9. 1080p 8s okay, but 5.1 is bit small. Hope they fixed their software, and they will feature the new sony sensor camera, and not the old 20mp that already seen in z3, z2 and z.

The conspiracy theory about Samsung spreading rumours is hilarious. The fanboys are getting desperate. Haha

In my opinion I don't believe it can be the z4, some signs for me is why would the rear camera not include HDR photo? Which is what they have included from the original Z, also I don't believe they would reduce the megapixels unless they are using the new sensor but I could be mistaken.
