    Question Suggest me a good phone!!

    Hi, I am totally confused between Note 3 and Xperia Z1 , which one shall I buy?? Here are some things I have figured out

    Samsung Galaxy Note 3

    Pros
    S Pen
    Multi Tasking
    3GB Ram
    And tons of features

    Cons
    Worst and laggy UI
    No good looks
    Media Player Sucks

    My Problem : Bad UI

    Sony Xperia Z1

    Pros
    Sexy and fast UI
    Premium Design
    Waterproof and Dustproof
    Scratch Resistant Glass
    And display technologies by sony

    Cons
    TOO BIG for a small 5 inch screen
    Slow Updates
    Lack in features like Note 3

    My Problem : Big Size for a 5inch screen

    So Please suggest me which one shall I get!

    With Best Regards

    The Note 3 has a SD800. It does NOT lag whatsoever.
    If you don't like the UI you can always install a launcher of flash a custom ROM
    I'd say Note 3. Better phone overall

    TW may suck but it definitely isn't laggy on the Note 3. You can just replace it with Nova or something anyway. Tons of third party media players in the store as well.

    Actually the only issue I had with my Note 3 AFA software went was VZ Navigator which was constantly crashing. I just disabled it because, really, lol at paying Verizon to use Navigator when Google Maps is a thing

    I have a z1 and I dont think that it is so big. In two days of use it feels normal in your hands. Sorry about my english.

    Touchwiz is not a launcher folks, you need to learn the difference between a launcher and a skin.

    A launcher does not change system level apps, menus, sub menus, Notification bar, etc. all of which will still have touchwiz elements and appearance no matter what launcher you use.

    The note 3 is a great phone and the stylus features are great. But I can't bring myself to use Samsung devices simply because I abhor the mish mash of gingerbread, ICS, and JB elements they mix all through their phones. I have to look at it every day for a year or more after all.

    It's not a launcher but that's really the only "ugly" part about TouchWiz, just the home screens and app drawer

    Well they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder
    I also dislike the gingerbread look in the dialer and some other apps, the menus, and the florescent green quick settings.

    Sony officially announced which phones will be getting 4.4, I don't see anything iffy about that.

    Z1, all the way. Sony's current top of the line products are truly solid.
