Yo, 17 Mar 2015Take into account that the S6 was released after the Z3, so Sony... moreSony dont need to polish the lens, they just need to polish the image processing software, its always the weak point of Sony's phone, other manufacturer using the same sensor can produce better image quality, why?

No SD card slot? Can't see any cover for SD card. Looks like the only cover would be large enough for the SIM card?

There are always two things. If it isn't this, it is that. SOME people will always find the negative of something regardless if it has a great positive. E.g. Right . So you got a perfect partner with the appearance and personality, but you complain that he/she doesn't have the money.

If Sony changes the design language, SOME MIGHT complain that the new design language is terrible than the old one and they shouldn't have done replacing the old design language when it works well.

If Sony doesn't change the design language, SOME will complain that it's the same poop and it's boring when it works well.

I think Sony didn't change the design language because IN GENERAL because it works PRETTY well and there is nothing to change about. Although that there is a possibility that a new design language will be better than the old one, it is unlikely to happen most of the time.

So why fix what isn't broken?

Sometimes in life we don't see the function of an object; instead, we see the form. Just like in a love life, SOME go after the appearance other than the personality.

I have no problems, just my two cents.

This is a wonderful design. Omni-balance has always been a strong point for Sony. I hope the Z4 and Z4 Compact has an IR blaster and software features that other phone don't have and better battery life of course. what the heck is that hole for near the usb port?

I`m pretty sure the second port on the bottom is a USB 3 Type C port. If that is correct, you may be wondering why would they also put the standard mini usb port along side? Well, the European Union charging standard is still mini USB for now, so until all the manufacturers agree to change the mini USB for the USB Type C, the only way to put the new USB format on the phone is to also include the standard mini USB, for now.

Guess the Mike could be in the usb port, and the other port could be bass reflex and lanyard in one. Lol

Duh, that mystery port on the bottom must be the lower mic right?

Sony should have really thought a design change this time, because they have over-played this Xperia Z design way too much. I was seriously hoping for a new design with a new camera, a bigger battery and a smaller foot print for that 5.2 inches screen. Disappointed again. Only and last hope is now LG G4. I really wish they do something completely out of the box this time. Lets see.
Also having high hopes for Microsoft Lumia 740 upgrades and their Flagship for the year 2015

I want to know if Sony support will still be around 2 years from now. Last I heard they laid off hundreds of employees from their mobile division, i expect something from sony to take a dive...
