    You took what Jas said incorrectly. He was referring to the fact that you have to go through 10+ pages or so it seems to see the whole review. Thus giving them a lot more page views...

    The OP was just being helpful.

    Not surprising! Even a bikini clad model in the shower cannot help the Xperia Z against the S4...

    I guess you did not see the pics from MWC of the model using the xperia in the shower? Very nice looking, but not enough against the S4

    Geez, you don't think they're a little biased, do you? I've never visited that site before, but just reading the intro paragraphs it's clear they expected the Samsung to win before they even bothered doing the comparison.

    I also don't understand their battery life numbers. I suppose that as a comparative tool it might have some value, but no one is ever going to approach the kind of numbers they publish in real life.

    Isn't there a Firefox plugin that unwraps multipage articles? I read the review and it's a pretty good one. But yeah it's annoying to plod through 11 pages to read 11 paragraphs. Kind of like the video reviews that have a guy yakking for 15 minutes to present 2 minutes of actual material.

    What was really interesting in that review was what it didn't talk about. I noticed in the data that the Samsung Note 2 was included in the test. Not only is it faster than the S3 was, it's battery lasts nearly as well as a Maxx. I knew there was a reason I love this thing And yeah I know this isn't the N2 forum. We now return to our regularly scheduled troll on troll deathmatch.

    Do they deliver, too?

    Seriously, the Xperia Z looks like a pretty nice phone. Not in the S4's class but nice.
    Might be competition for the One.

    I think the Z is going to sell just fine. I wish other makers would pay attention to the fact that phones are used by people and people tend sometimes to get things wet. So, the good IP rating, nice looking, excellent screen, acceptable performance - Sony isn't going to have any problems selling this.

    Nice to see a post like this unbiased opinion and not the typical Samsung. fanboy rant about how Samsung are the gods of smartphones

    I do not believe they are selling the Z in the US. We will get the ZL which is a bit smaller and not water resistant. So no, I do not think it will be a contender here.

    Not trying to be a fanboy, just being realistic.

    That's what I read - none of the US carriers will have that (Z) version. Anyone here who wants one will have to get it full price. Great phone for those who don't like cases.

    Trying to be funny? The s4 isn't in a better league than HTC. Good effort at snide humor though I guess

    Let's see, better camera (even at low light), better screen with far more natural colors, bloated all to **** but can turn off everything unlike blinkfeed, faster, will get far more updates and support from the OEM...should I go on?

    In the looks department, I agree, the HTC one has no equal. But everything else please.

    Your points are extremely Weak. Sense 5 isn't slow or bloated at all, the camera isn't the "best" but neither is it poor. And nobody of note has said anything bad at all about the display or colors. So yeah, it is on par with the S4 if you factor in things about the S4 that aren't terribly impressive either. Neither phone gets an A+ grade in ALL things. Where one phone is good at some things, the other phone is good at others. They're quite close.
