uu, 30 Mar 2013XZ lost different battles now, GS4 won many battles ryt now, 2nd is htc One, maybe Oppo5 will ... moreThis is not a good reason and you should not be told like this.You must to think what is really good or bad not with a silly idea.
I think that Sony is the great.I wish to produce more and more the greatest phone than Xperia Z to achieve the world's people choice and best wishes.
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

Anonymous, 20 Feb 2013so bad battery life, bad viewing angle, bad software... FAIL.. GS4 can't get here fast enough.bad software? where did you read that? and who cares about viewing angles?
AHOM, 25 Feb 2013This review is old news now. Where is the battery test? Will there be a durability test?durability test? what more do you want? dust- and waterproof. and the battery question has been answered by many comments. 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.
caffeine666, 25 Feb 2013wasn't battery expected to be tested on the week end? i think monday is out of the week end :Pgosh, so many people have answered that question - why don't you read the comments instead of asking the same question over and over again?
PHV, 04 Mar 2013When will the battery release? anyone has idea to share? how is the heat issue? I'm planning... moreall smartphones need need to be recharged once every 24 hours. the heating and angle issue is just the same as other mobiles too.
Danman7200, 18 Mar 2013Sony, you need to improve on your screens. If any person picks up a GS3/GS4, HTC ONE, Iphone 5... morereally? baffled by some of the neg. comments. it looks a lot better than Samsung, takes great pics, the music sound is clear and browsing is fun - guess some are never happy.
I own an xperia z phone and have been having,trouble with sd cards. Contacted Sony and was told the z is only compatible with up to 32gb cards and only tested with class 2 and 4 cards.not happy
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.
The screen goes dimmer after long use be careful. And the battery goes hot after some use. Very poor low light camera
This phone has one of the WORST displays I've ever seen on a flagship. That, and the fact that despite a Snapdragon S4 Pro beating inside, there's still some noticeable stutter, particularly when moving through the launcher. The LG Optimus G, on the other hand, at 720p resolution, has a much better display. Plus, the phone is absolutely snappy, too!
I've always been a fan of Sony Ericsson. I've owned several handsets over the years. I still own the Arc S as my primary phone, and I recently went to the store looking to upgrade to the XPERIA Z. What I saw was utter disappointment. It's a handsome phone, no doubt, but being a flagship, and considering the price it's selling at, I would've expected nothing less than a stellar display. They could've taken a page out of LG's book, but no; they decided to stick with the traditional, old LCD with that usually non-functioning software tweak called Bravia. It's selling cheaper, and is "just" 720p, but the IPS+ LCD on the LG Optimus G seems leagues ahead of Sony's 1080p Bravia. Sony have definitely lost the plot, ever since the departure of Ericsson. I really loved their phones, but it looks like I'm going to, now, have to opt for another brand.
