Performance wise it's one of the best phone.
Good:-Battery back, design, No hang at al, great features, update available regularly.
Bad:- 13 MP is not achieving expectation.
Worst Camera performance in low light.
Heat-up so quickly when you are using it which is irritating.
Worst phone i have ever had. Z3. The time in the top corner freezes when i open my phone. The predictive txt is all wrong. The memory is worse than a nokia2210. Now because you cant change the phone that i was told from the staff at the shop it was the best. I am now stuck with this heap. Never again back to a samsung soon as i can. Total rip off.
Is there no updates available for the contrast and camera, still even by today's standards this phone still manages to keep up with all these so called next gen phones like microsoftss 640 and the likes. Still look's sexy as hell and a pleasure to hold.
Um gonna buy xperia Z. Will it be the best to use with a low price? I really wanna knw thT as always i have wanted to buy this phone and now is the time. PLEASE GIVE ME ADVICE

ram lakshman, 04 Sep 2014sony camera calyrity is nick no spear parts and all is wellMy camera take so long to proceed the image.After a while does't respond and reject main menu . Fix this problem, other app is well. I love it.
I like XPERIA Z it has proven a phone & tablet style. It has an advance feature, sophisticated camera among other Phones! Stylist and executive look and 007 favorite.... That's World Class Brand.
Johnny C, 04 Aug 2014PLEASE INCLUDE IN YOUR REVIEWS: Wi-Fi and Cell reception performance. These are basic features... moreI agree with you.
GSM Arena does not spend enough time on its reviews with call quality, reception, real signal strength, and wifi.
Based on what you said I will not get this device.
Z is the best ...all smartphones has their disadvantage ..battery is okkay,camera a bit low from s4,but still okkay,system is okkay,size is ideal
in the night mode camera working like 2 megapixel and the flash is worse ofcorse the front came is the best , and loud speaker i dnt think its a loud speaker better to inset the headset finally sony xperia z grow up Engineers lol
Mark, 02 Dec 2013The camera is a big disappointment here, especially when compared to the SGS 4 camera. I reall... moreI really don't get what your talking bout, The camera according to you isn't as good as the galaxy s4, the screen isn't as good by ur rating? Have u updated your software? Several updates have com for the Z and they ve added white balance which includes hue n saturation options. The screen is as good as any other top smart phone, I have compared it with the S4, compared it with the active. The only thing I'll admit the s4 has deeper blacks n glossier whites and that's due to amoled. But with natural colours the Z beats the Samsung variants hands down. I ve compared the Samsung cameras as well with the Z and I think most people who say the galaxy is better just join the band wagon of Samsung fans and few reviews that are obviously sponsored by Samsung. In terms of producing natural colours that are life like or real the Z beats the Samsung. The Samsung has a slightly wider viewing coverage but doesn't produce better pictures in low or Bright light conditions. A lot of people just talk for the fun of it really.
PLEASE INCLUDE IN YOUR REVIEWS: Wi-Fi and Cell reception performance. These are basic features any phone today and they MUST perform well otherwise using the handset no matter how cool it is becomes a nightmare. Basically based on your positive review and other reviews I've purchased the handset and totally regret it.
The internet forums are full of people complaining of the Wifi horrific performance. In your review you don't mention anything about it. This drawback is so bad that it definitely should've been on the first page in MAIN disadvantages. I see you mention the camera there. Well the camera on a scale 1-10 gets 8 in my book but the Wi-Fi is around 5.
I'm very disapopinted with this guys.
Flozz, 03 Oct 2013Owned for several months, ok phone, battery life poor, wifi shockingly bad but other than that... moreFlozz, sorry to hear about the loss incurred. But try to buy any brand and go back to them with a cracked screen and let us know if they replaced it under the normal warranty.
One of the screen shot photographs shows a beautiful mountain peak . says place etc,. unknown. It is actually the Trango Tower in Pakistan , one amazing high peak which seems to go on forever.
