1) Xperia z1:
2) Xperia Z1:
3) Xperia Z:
4)Xperia Z Ultra:

None of my friends had better battery life on Xperia Z, Z ultra or Z1 even with Stamina Mode when compared with HTC One or Galaxy S4. As I said earlier, Sony failed to optimise the battery life.

Playing online games is not the best way to gauge your battery consumption, my little friend. :) Try graphic extensive programs instead.

Don't be suprised if this has better battery life than Sony z1 even with smaller battery capacity. Sony failed in battery optimisation.

I had the padfone 2, and now the infinity. Padfone 2 had problems with rebooting, and infinity have touch problems, and bad calling quality. Asus just can't deliver and I am not giving them another chance. The phone looks very good but it's to big. Btw, I am a Asus fan , but can't defend them anymore.

Good idea, but not again Handroid, PLEASE! It is totally useless, especially in tablets. No MS Office, no real AutoCad, no real desktop games, no nothing. Sorry Asus. Maybe next year.

Is it me or is it really pretty much the same design for the back of the phone where it says padfone....There's this line thing that looks just like HTC One at the back...

so instead of buying a phone + a tablet for 640+240 total you buy a phone with portable big screen for the same price. it is better to buy Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 for similar amount or even less and having two devices that two different people can use at the same time for less money

Very small battery for a 5 inch phone, and this device doubles up as a table too?
