The new update is buggy. After the update, my dialer, contacts, messages are acting really very weird. I am really disappointed. Sony better fix it soon with Kitkat update.

you have not lived that life or have an ounce of understanding the importance of the small things that end up wasting your life...put your phone down once in awhile. cheers lad!

You can't really compare the portability of a single 10A powerbank vs. replacing 3 times the battery in your phone, they are orders of magnitude away both in size and weight -- and much (MUCH) easier to get them through airport security (you'll waste valuable time explaining that powerbank, time you really could use to grab a bite or even *not* lose the plane).

The reason you don't get their use brings us back to the original point: only the few who have lived that life understand the importance of those small things that end up saving lots of time (if not more than just time) at the end of the month.

I think you´ll need a plug to charge the empty batteries and carry the charger

A power bank is more useful IMHO because you can charge different devices

I really don´t get why removable batteries are so important to some people.

Get a 10.000mAh power bank and you can charge your phone 3 times, how many batteries fit in a charger?

Sony concentrating too much on top of the line models. Please pay some attentions to the mid range models too. Here you are talking about 4.4 for Z1 etc. whereas we are still waiting for the 4.3 update for Xperia SP.
