This phone is good. The only concern is battery life. I've rooted my phone and installed a custom kernel/ROM. Undervolt and tweak it a bit the battery life seems to be much better.

Really impressed after updating to 4.3 JB all my issues are solved and now its working perfectly.. main problem i observed is overheating when playing videos and web browsing in HSDPA.. But in 4.3 there is no prob'z at all..GUI and camera quality is improved!!Now the phone is working so smoothly without a single problem.. am so proud of xperia z...

Don't read reviews only...
Try it on your own in phone shop~
Only believe what you see and feel with your own eyes and hands...
Everyone has different opinions~
Only you yourself know what you need and what you want...
Personal experience is important~
Just giving you advice that can use in life...

Advice for those didn't get the update: don't try to update from inside I mean settings/about/update software, get the update through you computer/PC Companion, that's the wway to get it for sure, in Israel got it before about one week

For RAM management one of the bst app is greenify but phone needs to be rooted...
Don't use apps for RAM clean-up(The just clean the memory at the time you press clean and after that app start process again and your RAM is full)
Greenify keeps apps in hibernate mode in background so they don't eat RAM and battery :)

About the RAM management, maybe we can use app like cleaner to free up some RAM.

I read bad reviews regarding this phone on flipkart. Is it true that the screen is very fragile and easily breaks with a little pressure ??

Do you know how to root 4.3 but without unlocking bootloader and all that stuff. I want to root just like before flash kernel with rooted one do some things and after that flash the previous one. I can manage the RAM with Greenify app and get some extra 300MB plus cuz there are a lot of background processes running now and can not hide onscreen buttons using GMD Auto Hide Soft Keys root app.
