far too easy to scratch the back glass

I've had this phone for a little over 3 weeks, and the back is already a mess. If I were a destroyer of phones, I'd have no room to complain, but I still have my green screen t-mobile sidekick in working order, so it can't be that.

Overall, the hardware is solid, but I feel like I'd have to keep this phone in a case to not have it immediately start showing damage.

Very disappointed in the quality of the back glass.

If you get one, get a case or some kind of protection for the back (and front) surfaces.

Verizon version please?

I wish this phone would be offered on Verizon, I'd jump to it for the size, camera button, and microSD slot...things no one else seems to think matter in a phone

can anyone point out..

How the sony device does not infringe upon Rockstar's patents (as opposed to any other android device)? They all look the same to me.

A 6.4" screen pushes the boundaries of even what I would find usable as a phone. I wonder if this one finally is too big.

LTE model question...

For anyone savvy in this area of tech...
For the Xperia Z Ultra - what's the purpose of an LTE only model? Does this mean it can be purchased and programmed for a CDMA carrier like Verizon or Sprint? If so, I assume this would mean it would only function (for voice? data?) when in a 4G area, is that right? Only other option would be wi-fi for data?
I'm not sure if my assumptions are correct, but whether yes or no...are there any other Pros/Cons to this LTE only type device?

Thanks in advance! 😎
