I would like to see one single manufacturer has the backbone to improve two things: battery and color reproduction accuracy.
Xperia S is fine, for the first few months I got it. Then it went downhill from there. From the reason you mentioned, I think mSDHC slot is the only valid reason of buying a XZ.
If you like Sony that much, as a matter of fact yes you do since I remember you from XDA forums, along with K900, good for you that you preordered it.
For me? No more Sony.
Well I can understand the Xperia S isn't perfect. Build quality wasn't as good as your average iPhone and the battery could be a bit weird at times, but I personally never had issues with it. I've been using mine for over 10 months now and still like it a lot.
On colour accuracy, I think that we're pretty much there. HTC and Apple are both very good, with very low Delta E (where Samsung does extremely bad with their AMOLED's). HTC and Sony do very, very well on colour temperature, reaching almost exactly 6500K. On brightness Sony is the undisputable winner, and on contrast the Nexus 4 does best, followed by Apple, HTC and Sony. Source: http://tweakers.net/...eer-scherm.html
(in Dutch but should be easy enough to understand)
Battery is something I agree on, but I also think it's fine the way it is. I'm absolutely not doing anything to make sure my battery lasts longer (all syncs and connections pretty much always on and relatively heavy use) and my battery still lasts me all day, every day.

Oh. I was comparing the wrong phone I think >_>. Well then! Can't wait for the ZL to hit AT&T
Will you post a review of the Z when you get it?
Yes! It's scheduled for delivery 28 Feb (the day after my birthday) but it might be sooner. Can expect a review here and on The Verge forums a few days after that!
