linstan, 18 Oct 2013hey,is xperia z better than xperia zl ?I don't think so, cpu z1 is faster, battery is bigger, speaker is little bit louder (but xz is clearer) and funny thing is, I find my xz screen (updated. 67) is better than z1. Colors is darker in xz (blue, red, black) maybe bravia 2 engine is tuned more saturate? Waiting for the update of z1 and hope colors will be more vibrant.
GONU, 19 Oct 2013Is Sony Xperia Z works properly without ROOT ??
It works perfectly even without root and custom ROM!
IslamHamdi, 18 Oct 2013Xperia Z beats note 2 in everything (design, performance, features, durability, etc ...) all b... moreI dont know why anyone would compare them, Xperia Z was revolutionary and the first internationally available phone of a new generation, while Note 2 was the last of its generation, a last half dead gasp at torturing the last drop of usefulness out of a dying generation hardware. It didnt even upgrade the display compared to Note 1, lots of disapointed Note 1 owners called the Note 2 display a downgrade, and its chipset was only a max overclocked Galaxy S3 coupled with 2GB RAM, which the US versions of Galaxy S3 already had as well. Even camera, there were no real progress in anything, just a lot of "starting to get too old" hardware trying to stay alive.
K-Nariman, 18 Oct 2013 hi there ...can every one help me??
i wanna buy a phone and i have 2 choice..
sony Z & ... moreXperia Z beats note 2 in everything (design, performance, features, durability, etc ...) all but the battery life to be honest .. note 2 has a better battery life than Z
Average use of Z gives u a day or day and half max while in Note 2 it gives u day and half to 2 days max.
so now u have the whole pic u can decide which meets ur needs in a phone that's all
if u can pay lil more extra get Xperia Z1 it's the best phone out there beating all phones with extra-ordinary battery life and a great 20 mp cam
Used xperia z for a week, no prob at all expect battery life. It doesn't last even for a day... Plz help..
GONU, 18 Oct 2013Sony Xperia Z has TFT Display but the new Phones like Galaxy S4 or Note 3 has OLED or Super AM... morethe oled has oversaturated colors that looks unreal or cartoonish yet its better saving battery juice but wont last long , the tft lcd with the bravia engine 2 in the Z produces morea realistic displays but the engine consumes battery more than oled , still tft lcd screens last way longer than oled (durability) if u want to have this phone for long time

Last night my Z accidentally got set to Superior Auto, a setting i stopped using and havent even tested since the last 3 updates the Z has received. And how did i notice that it was at superior auto? Yes the photos looked so bad and full of noise, even without zooming in. Switched back to Normal mode and mutipoint autofocus, rest set to normal, retook the same photos, what a difference, noise was reduced by tenfolds, its incredible how bad pics the superior auto can produce.
I strongly suggest everyone use Normal mode for Xperia Z, just try the difference and try some settings. I usually keep the autofocus set to multipoint but of course single point is useful some times (as usual just press and hold shutter button to lock focus). Touch focus i dont have that good experience with.
ISO setting can be useful to play with also, as low as practically possible, just dont get too optimistic, setting ISO 100 at night will not work, Z doesnt have long enough exposure times to do that.
One doesnt have to touch any settings, the important is DO NOT USE SUPERIOR AUTO.
Guys Xperia Z Users,
I want to confirm about the release date of 4.3 for Xperia Z Series, first I saw is late November, but now somebody said is Mid Dicember. So what is the date?
zaffron, 17 Oct 2013Last night I received an update on the stock album app. After downloading the update, the app ... moreI also updated to the new Album app 2 days ago and didnt notice any issues. Maybe you should try to delete the album cache or something.
Last night I received an update on the stock album app. After downloading the update, the app became a mess. whenever you scroll it up and down some of the photos become just plain color black. Also, when I open the photos they are pixelized and it will take at least 15seconds before the square pixels are gone. It used to be a smooth app, but now I hate it. Anyone else who has this issue? As much as possible I want to stick with this stock app. I hate downloading photo viewer from playstore and spam my phone with ads. Also, the UI of the stovk sony album app looks so intuitive and cool. Hope they fix it soon..
i have a sony xperia z for 4 weeks and it's very gd phone,battery gd,sound gd, watter proof amazing phone..

Are you talking about .2.67 or .2.74 ?
I didn't yet receive .2.74, maybe it's not international.
Anks, 17 Oct 2013I wanna buy Xperia Z or any other Android phone in the same range Should I go for Xperia-Z or ... moreIt's depends upon ur needs.. Because I owned Sony Z, Note2 , HTC one X.. First of all Z..advantages.. Stylish... Good camera ... Water proof .. Disadvantagest.. Poor sounds on both speaker & headset.. I'm a music lover & even if with third party apps it's disappointed me... Then video.. Low contrast.. Poor interface.. Battery also low Mah... Bar type... It's 5" narrow display... HTC is an overall champion... Then Note 2.. Good broad led display... descent camera. .Crispy sounds on speakers & headset..long lasting battery... Good for hd videos & gaming... But oversized ..Also u can check the Z 1 spec... I think it's better than Z...
