    Depending on how the S4 turns out, this might be the phone to beat.

    Could be a real winner if it has a big battery.

    Looks like it'll likely be this phone vs the Galaxy S4. Anyone wanna guess which phone ends up on top?

    Sony has had a history of screwing up XPERIA phones, so I'm going with the Korean company :D

    Galaxy S4. Samsung marketed the S3 like crazy, I expect the S4 to be no different. And marketing is what gets many consumers.

    This phone only looks good because we're all used to seeing 2012's top tier phones. The S4, and HTC M7 will likely be better!

    This. Sony is having a tough go in the mobile business lately.

    The Xperia ZL is this in a better body (just too thick). And I'm holding out for the HTC M7. Or the next Nexus.

    Maybe for themselves, but aren't the providing the sensors for camera on the iPhone 4s/5 and various other devices?

    Will be holding out to see what the other major players are offering for 2013 no matter what Sony releases. Overall sweet looking phone though.

    Is this true? Two things I want for my iPhone 4 replacement are a larger/wider screen and a camera that's at least as good as the iPhone 4s or 5.

    Yes, iPhone 4S uses a Sony sensor.

    Back on topic, the Sony/Sammy CES keynotes are this afternoon. I'll bump this thread as more info on the XPERIA phones come.

    Are there really high-end Android handsets every two months, or do you mean generally? I think most of us are only interested in high-end Android phones. Even if there are new high-end phones every two months, do you consider that a problem? Just curious.

    Any updates on the release date of this phone? I'd rather get the S4 (to be honest), but I'm not sure I wanna wait 4 or 5 months for it. If this Sony comes out soon I might be tempted.

    Whatever I get will be my first ever non-Apple smartphone.

    HTC One X+, Droid DNA, LG Optimus G. All came out last two months, I'm sure there are more device that I didn't list not included Nexus 4. It's not a bad thing but if new headset keeps coming out device makers tend to leave the previous model hanging without any updates since all new headsets have JB.

    Nice Sony, with the "Reality" Display, clearly targeting to beat the Retina display :D

    Haven't Sony had this for a while now across their products? Not everything is because of Apple did you know?

    This thing is NICE. REAL NICE. Probably the best looking Android handset I've seen to date. Only thing is the display looking washed out, and the processor maybe being outdated soon. The design is beautiful, and the battery saving feature seems very helpful. I don't like Sony's skin, but don't they open their phones up to allow stock?
