Sony Xperia Z review: Zero hour

Sony Xperia Z review: Zero hour - read the full textWith solid backup in the midrange, returning to the fiercest battle in the mobile market is Sony’s top priority. The Xperia Z, which leads the charge, got us properly impressed in a recent hands-on and if it walks unscathed from a complete review, we’ll know the Japanese have hit the form of their life...

After Use a long time like 2 month i just say only one this in XP Z have only 2 proble one is battery back up and another is hitting problem but main thing is that its desing is owsome and realy great no like samsung .. In samsung show many more phone desing same as same like S3, Grand, S advance, mini poket mini s3, grand duos etc and S4 so i do not like samsung desing. thats the reason i bought Sony z and frds just think abt it whenever u spend 40,000 for mobile then u will get some difference to other .. hope its my opinin and my think my review and then all have liberty different persons different choise but still happy with sony z

Bad viewing angle equates to privacy... I'm getting this soon.

I charge it overnight but use it a lot for music (2 hours) using camera/video editing (1 hour)/browsing 1 hour. Has about 25% left at that stage.
anyhow - everyone uses it differently - just read previous comments.

I just buy Xperia Z two days ago, really tired waiting on HTC One.

The screen angle is not that great, I admit .. but actually it not really affected as we use phone look straight.

As for washed out issue? Sorry they is no washed out issue at all. I am S III user, so I know the screen is no washed out, what it bad point is narrow viewing angle issue.
