Will the Sony Xperia Z cope with the fierce competition of 2013? Here's what you think about this

That is why we asked you earlier this week what you think about the future of the Xperia Z, and almost surprisingly, your answer was full of positivism. It turns out most of you, 66.98% to be precise, are firm believers that the Xperia Z will be a success. Meanwhile, just 17.26% are of the opinion that Sony's Z won't be able to deal with Samsung's S, or some of the other top dogs. The smallest group, 15.77%, represent those of us who tend to be a bit more thoughtful before jumping to a conclusion, reasoning that it's still a tad early to make any serious forecast.
There you have it, guys, we have the first real contender for the year! And, it looks like it not only has a fancy screen and a glass casing, but also the love of the people.

Yes, the Xperia Z can do it!

Impressive product by Sony. BTW, any idea why include touch buttons in the screen not put under it? There's the space so why take away from screen real estate?

Really can't understand why this has been thumbed down. A dual core atom processor clocked at 2ghz? How's that not exciting?

As far as I have read Stamina Mode is for standby online. We are talking about battery life when say, watching Youtube. My phone dies in just over 2 hours on 100% charge when watching Youtube over Wifi, which is just horrible. I also want a great camera. Optimus G also has 13 MP camera. But it's only okayish. I also want early software updates. The OS should be stable and fluid. That's about all I want.

I really think that even if the S4 is vastly more popular (and will be) and other phones such as Motorola Nexus (X?) and newer LG phones may come with better specs... The Sony Xperia Z and ZL are meant to reach a lot of markets given their frequencies arrange... Sony might not be the first releasing octa cores, HD and full HD screens... But they DO offer very good hardware and nice enough software to go along... and they actually INNOVATE quite a bit and take risks... I think their Wet Tracking technology is one of the most useful implementations not only for waterproof phones, but also because I know some people who sweat their hands a lot and that prevents them to get touch screen phones... Motorola made a bold and impressive feature by mixing a smartphone with waterproof certification keeping a decent enclosure... And now Sony has raised the bar with their truly High End, flagship device also meeting those standards. Yes, the Sony Xperia Z can do it!

The Xperia Z and ZL are Sony's flagship phones for the first half of the year, like HTC, Sony has a knack for releasing something much better 6 months later. My bet is they'll release a 5.5-6 inch phablet running either snapdragon 600/800 for the mid range/high end, Tegra 4 or even the Exynos 5 Octa for the flagship phablet. The Z and ZL will most likely get an update to 4.2 by July when KLP is announced.

The average phone user doesn't give a crap about specs. Most people make their purchase based on: 1. Brand (what their friends, parents, colleagues use. which brands they've owned in the past) 2. Price (generally speaking, consumers don't like to be ripped off) 3. Camera (correctly/incorrectly based on megapixels alone) 4. Battery life What the average consumer does not give a crap about: 1. Whether the operating system is open source or not 2. The number of applications in the market 3. Firmware updates
