Peiasdf: I love how feeble-minded Samsung marketing trolls are. They come in hordes bad mouthing other brands and up-voting their own comments. I hope Mister Roboto is paying them in Dollar and not Won which is not doing very well.

Every single thing on this phone is copied from the market leader Apple.

Metal body - check
Glass back - check
Touch ID - check
Bottom speaker - check
TrueTone Flash - check
Waterproofing - check
0.8mm camera protrusion - check
12MP - check
Apple Pay - check
NanoSIM - check
60fps UI - check
4:3 sensor - check

Samsung cannot even come out with a new exterior design because Apple haven't released iPhone 7 yet.

Here come the feeble minded Apple marketing trolls.

You must have missed the 'sheeple have to stay outside' sign by the entrance?

Seriously, the phone-religion wars are such an old, dead horse... can you come up with something new to bluster over?

The only thing I miss is active noise cancellation built into the phone, like my Sony, which makes air travel a much less noisy affair...

Especially the larger pixels sound appealing. Maybe casual shots in the evening will be less of a mess than you usually get from tiny phone sensors.

If the speedy 1.7 lens is also sharp, it'll be a great camera!

ummario: I want to buy this camera, but I'm afraid Sony can release an updated camera before summer, and I do't want to buy a almost outdated camera. Does anyone knows if this will happen?

Is people happy with it?

I think its smart to keep selling the old models at a lower price.

For the RX100 V, I hope for some improved ergonomics and menu, but I doubt it with Sony... they've been resistant to improving the menu since the nex5 days.

The other thing I'd like to see would be an extension of the zoom to ~ somewhere between 90 and 135mm at the long end, to improve the ability to get typical portrait shots.

migus: Might be an interesting phone, except one 'feature', i.e., "Cloud storage" to which any serious user should take exception.

" alternative to those who want to access large numbers of photos from their gallery app without shelling out big bucks for a phone with a lot of built-in storage."

Local storage today is plentiful, fast, light and affordable; e.g. a 32GB uSD card costs practically only a few $, not larger/heavier than pocket lint, barely a gram. Also the 128+ GB cards cost a fraction of most data plans. Thus one could carry her personally private 'cloud' about, fast, cheap and secure.

Wanna show my latest shots to a friend met on the street, with voice comments? Presto, at local speed, no data costs!

Yet the local storage has become the anathema of Cloud Inc., the "big data" companies monetizing their users' data. A uSD card is cheaper, lighter, faster than ever... if only a port would exist to use it!

I'd never buy a device w/o local storage ports built-in.

You're forgetting Greedle's motivation to have access to more of your data - why they outright forbid any manufacturer who wants to make a Nexus device to include a MicroSD card.

And of course, corporations have no intention for us to go on keeping control over our own data. We're supposed to be dependent on them.

Wanting to dip into our bank accounts on a monthly basis is actually secondary, believe it or not...

photogeek: Things people will do to avoid giving you a micro sd slot. Guys, a 128GB microsd card is $30 on Amazon and prices are dropping like a rock. Who needs this?

Cloud is fine to add as a backup, but it can never replace a 200GB MicroSD card.

@fuego6 - I have never lost a phone yet. If I did loose one, I have multiple backups and a credit card sized case holding 10 MicroSD cards - I don't just use them for my phone, of course, also for camera and field recorder to swap etc.

N13L5: Sounds fine for people who never leave their urban high speed internet area, who believe the internet will never be shut down for reasons of martial law or war or whatever.

I keep saying, the NSA should just offer cloud backup and they wouldn't have to go to so much trouble to get your data, you'd give it to them out of lazyness and airheadedness.

I carry a 40GB library on my cell phone, including tomes like "ditch medicine" and "a ship captain's guide to medicine when there's no doctor and no supplies" etc.

There is no better way to keep handy a lot of information than a cell phone. I don't know what you use yours for, but for me, its mainly a tiny computer and storage for data I may not be able to look up on Google some day soon, given the speed the warmongering Globalists are moving towards crisis.

N13L5: Previous model Z2 and Z3 phones already did not use glass.

Maybe the new plastic looks less convincingly like glass, but that's not new.

No, it wasn't a clone, I took it to Sony and I think they would have both told me and refused to repair it if that was the case...

Yes, they wrote the same thing about the Z2 and mine turned out to have a plastic back anyway, after I walked around with it for 6 months believing it was glass.

There is a distinct possibility, that they ship different versions to different regions. Some may have glass, others may have plastic / polycarbonate or whatever it is.

Certainly, glass could both be a good thing or a bad thing - less easy to scratch but could shatter.

I tend to put a protective foil on both sides and call it a day. :)

Vbx: "The main difference is that the back is now plastic instead of glass which means it doesn't quite have the same premium feel as before. On the upside, it's not constantly smeared with fingerprints and arguably less likely to shatter in a fall"

I thought the back was glass, as definitely is my E6653. Was the OP reviewing another model perhaps?

I thought for a long time that the back of my Z2 was real glass, because I read about it being glass. I only found out it wasn't glass after it came off from the internal battery swelling and pushing it out (after 6 months of ownership). As I went to remove the back panel completely, I found it was far more flexible than any real glass could possibly be.

If you really "know" that your back is glass, because you had it off at any point, it would point to the possibility of the Z line being equipped with different types of back panels, depending on what markets they are going to. (My Z2 was bought at the Hong Kong airport, for example)
