Overall: I read some of these people posting bogus reviews of this phone while they don't even own it. I own it but I didn't buy it from flipkart. I bought it from Vijay Sales on Day One as I couldn't wait for it. Regardless, most of the people here don't even know what this phone is capable of and yet they are comparing it to other phones that haven't even launched yet. It's silly, it's as if they have next to zero knowledge of what they are doing.nNever mind the bogus reviewers. Let's get started:nn1 - Hands down it has one of the greatest displays. You'll literally be stunned when you see things floating around on your screen. Don't fall in for what people are saying it has bad viewing angles. Why would you want to use your phone at less than 30degrees anyways? You don't plan to stress out your eyes, do you? It's a great display, ignore the idiots who say it's bad.nn2 - Is it strong/durable? Is it really waterproof? Does it stand up to it's expectations of being ultra durable? Yes, yes and yes. Only thing you should know is that the flaps should be closed if the phone is supposed to come in contact with water. If not, well you're out of luck. I've used it extensively in the bathroom and it definitely stands up to it's expectations. About durability - the skeleton frame is made of glass fibre polymide, the material which car companies use in replacement for metal, yup. So that's got to be tough. Glass is Dragontrail, which is about 6-7 times better than Gorilla Glass 3. So it's drop proof from a normal height.nn3 - The Technical Part - I decided to keep this for the end because I feel that when you invest a huge sum of your money into a product which you'll be using on a daily or let's make it hourly basis it must be durable, and reliable. Me, I've always stayed away from smartphones only for the sole reason that I wouldn't want to drop it or spill water on it randomly and see my phone getting destroyed. Even so, I came close to buying a Note 2. But when I saw the Xperia Z launch at CES'13, I made up my mind that - "Yes, this is my first smartphone. This is the one!". So yea it's my first smartphone, ever. Anyways, everything runs on the phone is ultra smooth. No lags, no annoying freezes. Great UI, elegant and sober! It's a pleasure to use this phone. I'm a big time game buff, but I've always avoided games on cellphones, I have a PC and a PSP for all gaming I need. So i can't comment much on this phone's gaming performance, but I'm sure it's pretty darn good.nn4 - Negatives. Only one bad part I've noticed is that it sort of heats up a bit after let's say 3-4 hours of continuous usage. Again heats up only after 3-4 hours, not instantly. But what better solution to dip it in cold water, right? Yep! I figured that since it's water proof why not I just go ahead and dip it in water for a few seconds and dispose off all the heat! It's perfect.nn5 - How is the camera? Is HDR really good? I'll be honest, I don't really care much about all the HDR and other features, but the camera is pretty good. The options you get to tweak around with are plentiful. HDR is best experienced when you are outside or in high/low light situations. Normally you won't experience much of a difference but it's there.nn6 - Sound. Sound is crisp and solid. And I don't use the headphones provided by Sony, either of them(one in the box and the free over-the-ear set). I use Razer Moray+, so maybe what I hear in the Moray+ might be significantly different than compared to Sony's own headphones. I'm guessing they are still great, no reason not to be great.nnSo I'll conclude that currently the Xperia Z is the best smartphone out there. The 4 cores are MORE than enough. I'll tell you if you think your S4 with 8 cores is going to make you Superman, then you are outright dumb. 8 core means nothing when it comes to smartphone. There won't be any application which will utilize even a fraction of those 8 cores. You don't need that much power, it's a waste of resources. Don't jump on the 8 core bandwagon without knowing jackshit about it. Also, I saw the S4 launch in NY live on my PC. Frankly it's just an upgraded version of S3, it looks the same, there are more gimmicky softwares, more bloatwares, useless features, senseless addition of 8 cores, no water proofing no dust/drop proofing. Would be higher in price. So why buy it? Just coz Samsung says so? Well then what's the difference between you and iSheeps?nThink about it.nnTL;DR => Worth the 38k, won't find a better phone, period. Go for it. Ignore Samsung fanboys. They are just hating because the S4 can not withstand this masterpiece, so they'll make stuff just to bluff you. Don't let them succeed.
