i bought this a couple of weeks ago.
HORRIBLE phone and it really SUCKS!!!!!
sony updates are UNRELIABLE. after the upgrade the signal strength dropped recklessly and NO NETWORK available.
HEAVY BATTERY DRAIN, POOR SIGNAL, VERY SLOW NETWORK
even if u plan to buy/ already have one, NEVER UPDATE to 4.4.2
xperiazlover, 23 Jul 2014Hi, as I've said in my last post, I just flashed the firmware with build number .233Excuse me, but you received the compilation 0.230? Or just you went straight to 0.233? Cause Sony is now launching kitkat 4.4.4 that is 0.233 and is solving the battery issue for z, and then update it with 4.4.4

Htc 816 is not good either as a tab or as a phone.

Just moved from Xperia Z to HTC One M7 and am really happy with it. The kit kat on Z was sad. Lag in opening application, lag while scrolling setting page, UI minimize/open bugs, sad camera were really annoying in Z. I did love the phone before, but not after the update. I would recommend Htc One M7, it falls in the same Range, almost and is lot better than Z.

No lags at all, very smooth and fast. I just flashed the firmware, but it is very awesome!
Battery stays longer but charge longer too (its ok with me though). I am very satisfied with the update. Kudos Sony.
Marki, 21 Jul 2014I have Xperia Z C6602 but I still didn't get the Android 4.4...why?Update still not released for all countries
tarek, 20 Jul 2014i fear from laggy update reviews and satisfied with nice working jelly beanok as u like ... but for me there a lot of noobs who cant use smart phones and that happens after each update and u can see topics when 4.3 relaesed and ppl crying after update beocz of battery draining and lag and fkn shit ... so i dont want to take care about ppl who give feed back .. they are not professional :)

I want to Buy this Phone (Sony Xperia Z)
Any One tell me how it is ????
can anyone help me?? I downloaded the game cooking dash and it freezes up my phone Im thinking that this could be an incompatibility issue could it be because I already upgraded my xperia Z to kitkat?
Been using kitkat just a week, and one thing that people asked me is about the battery, well, since i updated, i never tested, but sincerlly, that was huge, 4.3 JellyBean was great, i liked the way Kitkat was presented, in user interface. I didnt believe that i had to donwgrade 4.4.2 to 4.1, so i search in androidPIT and found that sony said that was google service issue, i followed the instructions and guess...? Issue solved. Battery now is good. Happy with kitkat

I have purchased this phone 3 days ago.
My phone was on n i wanted to remove si... moreThat's fine. I own Xperia Z for more than a year. If you want to change SIM card you have to turn it off first, otherwise once you pull off the SLOT the phone will restart and if you put sim card will not be recognized and you'll need to restart again.
Before inserting new SIM turn it off firs.
