Oh, so much for a month old "premium" $900+ (for early buyers). The Xperia Z simply just looks good. That's about it.

My Xperia Z is only 2 weeks Old so I guessed I am not yet safe. But it's only one of 4 Xperia currently in our home. We have Xperia Z, U, Tipo and Mini. Nothing wrong with any of these, add the Xperia Pro I used for almost a year, never failed or hang or freeze. Whatever it is that it's wrong with Sony it is not hardware quality.

former Galaxy Note 2 owner here.. i had this kind of issue before with the note 2 after using it within a month.. maybe because of the software i really dont know then switch to xperia V and im really satisfied.. This kind of issues really depends on the phone in my opinion not all the phones of a specific manufacturer..

All technology suffers from some form of bugs at some stage even if its just a few of them, this is no big deal really.

To all who blame SONY !
Sudden death is not something exists only on Sony Smartphones!
Don't you remember the sudden death issue of your beloved Galaxy S III which was fixed after firmware update?
Be Honest !

I work at a service provider tech department, we get dead SIIIs all the time. In fact, it's the only device that has "sudden death" as its most common reason for warranty repairs
