Dude that snapshot of xperia z, not this zu. and for picture of this phone, Yea this is not fitting my pocket. I guess fashion need to change back to baggy jeans to fit these phablets.

What's your problem? I posted the screenshot for Sony fans, the 4.2.2 is coming! It's not for you! If you didn't want this kind of phone then don't buy it, it's simple as that!

To much bezel Let down by 2Gb Ram, 3Gb great Still using half baked A9 A15, why not the A15®

This image confirms this phone has the same terrible TFT screen which produces very bad blacks and poor viewing angles. Not to mention arguably thick bezels (sides and top/bottom both). Also, consumers would need to again wait another 6 months for an update in future (that too on a flagship!). I hope they atleast get the camera right this time ! If so, then there is something for Samsung fanboys to worry about ! P.S.: Nice job starting the fanboy wars for no reason !

Unfortunately, that is true. I like what sony is doing with their new phones, except the screen.

This looks like ZR on the lap of 8-year old much more Compare if you don't believe me.

Not 8 year old, but Asians, and the Japanese are more petite than Koreans. At least many of them look younger than their actual age, which is what i like about them. A japanese male and female's average height is only 1.7m and 1.5m respectively.

And with 6.44" screen and that big bezels this is more like tablet not phablet. P.S XperiaDROID Must love Samsung!

I have and it made me very excited when I first read it would feature in the new devices this year. But were you actually bothered to see the picture before posting your comment ? Does that picture look like a triluminous display ? That is the same awful display which they've used in Xperia Z !

Because Sammy fanboys think that the Note 3 will beat all the phablets from other manufacturers.

I don't see any new phablet.Sony with 6.44" is more like Galaxy Mega.

i think any portable device with native calling feature is a phablet no matter how big the device maybe thats why Asus call their 7'' device Asus "Fonepad"
