I have Sony Ericsson mobiles since ages, sent few of them to service here in Abu Dhabi and they are very good in time and cost, for replacing the device, i believe you need to check your country customer rights, most of mobile fones are sold through suppliers and mobile shops which few of them will allow to return back.

for me.. going to buy the Xperia Z for suuuuuuure...
but not yet decided which colour!!?!?

Try to close your eyes and feel the xperia z and a galaxy s3 or even the htc butterfly. The worse to hold overtime is undoubtedly the xperia z. And galaxy s3 maybe ugly but most phones now get a cover. The flourishing casing industry is a testament to that. Or maybe you dont know that because your life is boring. And we, teens and youngs, use our phones a lot. That's why we need long usage time and not standby time. And maybe you dont know that also.
Enjoy your xperia z if you happen to have one if you can afford. We ordered two but cancelled after trying it from the showrooms. Or maybe you are not yet getting it? So lame...

We received our test unit Xperia Z. After testing and comparing it with other top end phones, the phone supplier does not want us to publish the results. Anyway, it's the same like the other reviews - poor viewing angles, low contrast, finger print magnet, not so spectacular camera and below average battery performance with the active 2 emails and facebook push.

In Japan it's already out for a few weeks. I have seen his comments/posts in some other forums also. And seems like his war against Sony is working the way some threads go. Maybe experience is the best marketing tool this time. Sony should check out that guy.

My experience~
When I wanted to buy a 3TB external hard disk...

WP8 it's not perfect, but is very user friendly and smooth, yes android is very versatile and there is too much to tinker with but is very unstable, my HTC Vivid i have to restart it at least 2 times a day, memory overload, etc.. another android i have Motorola Atrix 4G it needs a custom rom to work properly, i don't have the time to unlock bootloaders and install custom roms... i just need a cellphone that just work out the box and i found it with the Nokia L920.

Wrong moved Sony ! Very wrong! Should've go with WP 8. WP 8 won't die and peoples just have to stop being stupid for saying crap about Nokia and WP 8. I using a SSGS 3 right now and I would love try a WP 8 device like 920 or 810 as my carrier is t-mobile.

I received my iPhone 5 with scractches on the ring and the back. You know what? Apple refused to change my iPhone 5.

My sister bought Galaxy S3 2 months ago. Her Galaxy S3 got the "Sleep of Death" problem. She took the phone to the service centre and she received back her S3 with the same problem. She said that she would add some money to replace the problematic S3 with the Note 2 but they refused. So? F*ck Samsung.

I'm a happy TX user.

Windows phone was revamped and released and not many companies adopt the OS for months after release. Firefox comes up with a new OS that looks identical to Android and suddenly everyone will bring out a new firefox phone in the next year. Strange.

Xperia go, then you ordered xperia z? Basing on the dates of the phone release, your claims are seemed to be in question.
