    Got the Z (white) absolutely love it! No expandable memory for the HTC is it’s #1 flaw.

      Hi Shawn, tell me about the the battery, how is it?

        I own Xperia Z and its completely satisfying. Battery life comes for 1.5 days with regular usage (3G always switched on except night, hear songs for 1 hr, play games for 30 min, periodic checking of mails, FB and Whatsapp). You can see the difference with and without the Stamina mode.

      @Shawn, I’m at first to give you “yes” to the missing memory card, but at a close reading, then “NO”, because the HTC have a total memory of 64Gb, while the Z “only” can have up to 48Gb – so what’s the problem – none.
      I’m not a HTC fan boy, but Samsung, so what I’m missing in both, are the replaceable battery!
