dont buy this phone its waterproof feature is not worth buying,they will just void its warranty when it got wet inside and will not admit its a possible phone defect.!

SUBPAR DISPLAY AGAIN! I was hoping Sony will quit playing games and come up with a proper display solution. Instead they put advertising at work and hope for the best: 'triluminous extravagant display Bravia tech bla bla '. Well HTC and Samsung don't boast about their LCDs so much but they are miles ahead. The truth is this is another subpar display from SONY and the review failed to mention that. This is a flaghisp phone competing with Samsung Galaxy 4 and HTC One - you should compare the device with them not with Xperia Z. Certainly the display is better than Xperia Z which was awful.
Also as it was pointed out here the sound quality hasn't been improved. You get the same below average volume levels. So expect to hear everything around you while commuting or walk at street level.Terrific

iam using this phone from last 2 months.It was an awesome experience.The phone is great.it has a great shape. And a better battery back up then other android phones.camera clarity in low light is stunning. Never had any concerns with loudspeaker regarding low Clarity of hearing it's good. The phone is fast too.So at the hole the phone is awesome. The only issue this phone has is its heating problem. Otherwise it's a definatily pick phone..*****

Has Sony solved the "Yellow Hue Tint" problem in the display?
