If Sony is willing to reduce price for Xperia Z & ZL by $200, I guess they can overtake Galaxy S4.

This is the best chance for Sony to make a come back.

DOn't waste your chance this time!

Why do you think that the Xperia T or TX is better than any other quadcore that has been released? The Xperia ZL is powered by the newest quadcore processors that has been released.

The crappy part about this model is that this is the international version so it wont have any warranty on sony......also the 4g is not going to work in US. http://developer.sonymobile.co...smartphones/

Unfortunately the 13MP camera failed to excel. It does not produces a top notch photo. Lacks of sharpness & detail comparing the photo taken by 8MP camera from iPhone or S3.

Another problem the built-in mobil Bravia engine was not fully optimized. It did not enhance the quality of video & photos from the internet browser.
Try to compare the "low quality" video between Nexus 4 & Xperia Z/ZL, you can see a very obvious different!

Both Xperia Z/ZL are extremely overpriced! In actual fact, it does not worth that much, most probably like $399 to $449.

You can get LG Nexus 4 with the similar processor(Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait)/RAM(2GB)but half of the price.

Bring this to the US and put it on all carriers, Sony. You'll make a ton of money.

Manufacturers always overcharge for their products in Australia - far better to buy any top range mobile overseas, even from Indonesia - essentially the same mobile same standards but can be hundreds of dollars cheaper.

One of the major problems that Sony Xperia Z/ZL did not sell well because of extremely overpriced.

Sony tried to be Apple to sell product at Premium but they forget there are many makers offer better, cheaper android smartphone such as Samsung or LG. So users have choice not to buy Xperia.

Another big mistake from Sony!
