so let me get this straight, you need to make sure all the holes are plugged for the thing to be water... resistant. And it doesn't even support my 64gb sdcard... And no awesome software features like samsung phones... PASS

Phone looks great the only thing I do not understand it the pricing of the phone. I do understand that Sony wants their cheap line forgotten and only focus on high-end devices and that's all fine but they do need to remember that people are not willing to pay a couple of hunder bucks more for a phone with a dedicated camera button.

Don't get me wrong, I love the design and the feel of the Z-line but I can't really see a future for this strategy they have set out.

Just price the damn thing at the normal rate of a Samsung galaxy s or note device after a couple of months (which is often a 1/3 price drop) and then you can sell the hell out of it.

Then you have a up to date phone in the top segment for a sharp price.

It seems like the people have forgotten how much was the Galaxy S3 when it came out.

Sony is too expensive? Maybe, but is a good phone. Even Samsung it's expensive but don't offer nothing, it's a easte of money.

Another problem with Sony Xperia Z or ZL that the 13MP camera does not take a sharp photo comparing to its rivals like Galaxy S3 or iPhone5 can able to take a shaper photo.

The built-in Mobil Bravia Enginer did not do a good job to enhance the video & photo quality in the browser. The LG Google Nexus 4 shows a better video quality than Xperia Z/ZL.
