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.....

This flagship phone from Sony is beautifully and expensively designed.. I would be really mad if my phone suddenly dies. Anyway what are other good Sony models out there? I always wanted to go back to SE, now just called Sony. They're not as popular now as before and just find about this flop// sad

It's announcement is also not 3 months. R you using prototype or using duplicate xperia z.

About me, I am using Xperia z since last 2 weeks and in my regular mode it's battery is excellent. It's baterry last whole day and next morning in single charge. If i on power management mode and use it as a phone not as psp(play casual games for less than 1 hours)and use internet as my second internet divice after my laptop(use internet for email, news, gps n other thing one use phone) and use is as a phone then it's baterry last for about 3 days.
about stand by time I can't dont because once I has left my mobile to check it's standby time, I got my call and pick my phone. It was in second day and my baterry level was still 91%(I has on power managment)

Here we go again bad news about Sony. But never see about Samsung or iPhone,etc. I have S2 and Xperia V. I work in Apple store. And sometimes I got prob with my phone n complains from costumers. There's no perfect phones!!

Every brand manufactures defective batches of goods. Some of these defective goods get leaked into the market due to poor quality control. As long as the manufacturer acknowledges warranty and fixes the problem free of charge in a cooperative's an acceptable flaw. So get real and quit making Sony look like the only brand in the market that makes this mistake when all others are just as bad or no better.

Have anyone tried to compare the photo taken by Xperia Z with S3?

The photos captured by 13MP Xperia Z is less sharp and lack detail comparing to S3.

Will Sony fix this issue?
