    I chosed for Sony Xperia Z
    Dragentrial glass back and front (6x stronger than Gorilla glass)
    Water and dust proof.
    The different processor speed vs Samsung Galaxy S4 is for my not important.
    The storage 816 GB less than the S4 is not important for my.
    I do not like plastic body and back cover….
