I can only say no android phones have good resale value, unless it is those gimmicky gold or crystal made phones, which is actually the materials that are worthwhile.

This PS4 Remote Play is really a game changer!

Seems like just a gimmick... unless you are in a scenario when you playing on the big screen and someone wants to watch TV, and you want to continue your game.. lol

And with a suction pad to hold the phone, that means you can't use a case or the case has to be flat and smooth at the back.

Dunno why Sony likes to make gimmicky stuff that normal folks won't really use. *cough*smartband*cough*

But I must say that their mobile phones are getting better, even though along the way there were a lot of bumps. I really like this Z3 compact design. It's plastic, but premium material doesn't necessarily mean better quality!

Gimmicks or not, not sure.

End of the day, it is a bonus and someone is going to use and like it.
Same goes for waterproof feature, not everyone goes to pool with their phone.

Nice to have, but not essential.

Waterproof feature is definitely nice to have, especially for those of us with oily skin and sweaty palms.
The phone is something we use everyday and over time it will accumulate dirt and grime.
It just feels good to be able to wash it all off, just like taking a bath.

Waterproof proof is getting necessary.
Went cycling with friends and it rains and we took shelter.
My phone ok, my friend phone got water went inside. can see water patches inside the screen. Also saw some other cyclist put phone in ziplock.

This is excellent. Wish more smartphone makers actually would go for function over form.

As a current Z1C owner, don't think web surfing can exceed >10 hours on any phones.. Only getting max 8 hours now, and that is with stamina and low battery mode on.

Anyway I think I will still be getting it, the turquoise color looks really nice! But if Moto X is coming to Singapore, that will be another story..

The major differences of battery life between Z1 and Z3 is probably the higher standby time and couple of hours more for videos.
