The best phone-to-screen size ratio coming soon to the US in the form of unlocked Sony Xperia ZL

Price is not specified, as the phone is listed only as coming soon, and you can sign up for a notification when the sale goes up. The Xperia ZL will be offered in black, white and red, and sports the best phone-to-screen size ratio of more than 800 smartphones on the market.
We don't expect it to be cheap when it launches stateside SIM-free, but you get a very compact 5-incher with a Full HD screen, IR blaster, 13 MP Exmor RS camera, and a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
- Display 5.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Quad-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 16 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2370 mAh(13h 3G talk time)

and unlocked for usage on any network in the US, as long as it is AT&T or T-Mobile. That's the most funniest thing i've heard today...

Actually yes. We want pocketable epic screen phones, and the XL is excellent on that front. It's smaller than the S3 with a larger screen, and thinner the bezel the more comfortable the one-handed use is. It's actually smaller (albeit thicker) than the HTC One with it's 4,7" screen.

A lot of people, especially Apple fanboys, always complain that Android phones are too big, but if phones had better phone to screen size ratio then they would be able to have a large screen and not very large. Like _Bone_ said this 5" Xperia ZL is smaller than the 4.7" HTC One. I think more Android phones should have very small top and bottom bezels and bezeless sides, then a 4" phone would be about the size of the 3.5" iPhone 4S and 4.5" phones would be about the size of the 4" iPhone 5 and then 5" phones would be smaller than last year's flagships.

Why do tech sites ignore facts over and over again? The Huawei Ascend Mate has the best phone-screen ratio by 78%. Let's not ignore the manufacturer that sold more smartphones than Sony last year, shall we?

This is why lots of people tend to get less excited over a new Sony product...its always the high damn price

Very true and I bet once the s4 comes out it will have almost the same price as this and zl will be irrelevant and still overpriced. Htc is best known for not listening to customers regarding sd cards and battery. Sony however is on pricing. Better get the z, small price difference.
