same problem tried all the usual that's been posted then I noticed when I tried to connect to laptop nothing happened so I have to send the phone back but last shot I tried it whith my old usb cable and it made a bleep so I went and tried with my old charger and hey presto it started up and is charging at the moment so it might not be the phoneBUTthe charger could be the fault because they say only use the charger that comes with the phone good luck worth a try

Wow!
I've just read a few top rated comments and I'm really disappointed.
Sony fans are becoming like Apple fans. :(
It's Xbox vs Playstation all over again!

My friend has a S3 and when he saw XZ he wasn't impressed at all, and to calm all of you die hard Sony fans out there he also wasn't impressed with S3 mini.

And please for the sake of your sanity, don't be loyal to a brand for life, that's just wrong! :P

Yup, my xperia z just stopped working. It's been at room temperature and had 47 percent battery moments earlier. Now it's absolutely dead, it won't charge or switch on or anything.

If you need a good practical "and small size" mobile go for "Sonyericson Neo V", it works like a hell.
If you are "big screen fans" I think you should go for "Sony Xperia acro S", a nice water profe good look device.

This is my first sony phone and it is a good device except for a major problem. It cause the wifi in my house to crash. The Singapopore service provider, Singtel, has changed the modem twice, but problem persist. I sent the phone to Sony but they refuse to acknowledge the problem, instead, just change the phone. But still persist when I bring it back home. Sony please do something. Otherwise I may have to just throw it away.

Ya rite samsung cannot fool everyone saying that.... Its being proved that every quad core has 4 main cores n 4 companion cores that's what even samsung has.. N its flaunting that saying it has 8 cores.... This is their usual strategy.... Samsung start innovating something atleast rather than faking around or merely just coping directly from apple or htc.....
