    Sony's update to the Z3, the Z4 brings some hardware updates to their 2014 phone:
    Sony Xperia Z4 official: 5.2-inch FHD display, Snapdragon 810, 3GB RAM and 20.7MP camera | Android Central

    To compare them with each other, Alex wrote up a comparison article:
    Quick comparison: Sony Xperia Z4 versus Xperia Z3 | Android Central

    I think aside from the battery, it's not that bad. Even then, the battery only went down by 170 mAh.

    Not as good specwise as I hoped
    Definitely not worth the upgrade from a Z3 imo

    Very good point. But, the same could be said about the M9, or even the S5 if you had the previous iteration in the line. I honestly think this is intended for one who has not had a Sony, or has a Z2.

    Yeah, I guess that would make more sense. It does have some nice upgrades, such as the flapless USB which is still water resistant

    I will admit, I will probably be looking at a Sony this year. Might be the Z3, but who knows? I have been wanting to run a Sony for a while.

    IDK, this seems like an incremental upgrade and I don't think we will see a global release for this device. Based on some of the other renders that have been leaked I think we may be getting a totally new Xperia device in the fall for the global audience, may not even be a "Z." The biggest upgrades are flap-less charging and the SD 810.

    My Z3 is snappy (more responsive than other phones I use including my iPhone 6+) and unless android 5.01 bogs it down (whenever TMo releases it for the Z3), I think the processor is totally adequate.

    I'm not going to "lust" for this phone, I think more is coming.

    Love the fact the battery flap is gone, happy to see a 1080p screen personally and like the speaker grills better. Finally bumping up to 32gb for this version is long overdue.

    Not loving the constant desire to make these thinner. My Z3 is plenty thin and to sacrifice some battery life seems silly. Would be nice to see the height of the phone slimmed down a bit vs. the thinness.

    While I find the camera on the Z3 is very good, it's hard to deny the fact Samsung, Apple & LG all have models with OIS and are just simply better overall at this point and I really like the pictures I get from the Z3. Maybe Sony invested on the software side a bit more. Kinda feels like they have a **** load of 20mp sensors lying around they need to get rid of though.

    Any official word yet on Qi replacing the magnet/dock charger?

    I love my Z3. There is no reason to upgrade with not much of an upgrade in battery and or screen. I am satisfied with what I have for another year.

    Apparently that's not the flagship phone we're due. The real Sony flagship phone is being launched in May!

    Seems to me that Sony is doing the same thing that Apple does buy launching as many phones as they can. I dont know buy I thing there trying ta play catch up. You have the S6, soon to be coming out iPhone 6S, why not a Z6?

    I currently have the Z2 and there is nothing from this that is appealing to me. They moved the speakers back to the spots on the Z2, cut back on the battery size, and that seems to be it.

    If what someone above posted about the may release for the actual flagship, I might pick that up.

    Well if the price of the Z4 isn't flagship price for them, then I'm honestly a little scared of their flagship. Haha. Because as is the Z3 and z4 are quote expensive.

    Now that the Xperia Z3+ is confirmed for a release in June (international release), we will still get the flagship.

    I have never had a Sony until I recently brought the Sony Z3C and I love that phone. Takes, great pictures, lasts all day + and it is IP68 certified. I took it to Great Wolf Lodge this past weekend and got some really cool shots of my boys that were never possible before with any other phone I have owned. I would love for the Z3+ to have qi charging....then in my opinion it would be the perfect phone!!!
