Currently I am using this phone. But frankly speaking, my previous phone (Samsung Galaxy S2) was far better than Xperia Z. My Xperia Z heats up quite quickly and has poor brightness compared to the Super Ameoled display of SGS2. For this I have to increase the brightness on my XZ and this drains the batter further. I am not also satisfied with the battery performance of XZ. It stays only for 1 day with data disabled (enabled as and when required) whereas my SGS2 battery stayed for 3 days! One of the biggest set back for me was XZ does not support 3G video call!! Actually I needed a phone with long battery life (since I play a lot of 3D games) and good features (including video call). But XZ did not satisfy me in any of these fields! Shocking!
I'm using this phone from last 3 months. Everything good except battery. When I contacted the service center guys, they said I can replace the battery which costs around 4500(Indian Rupees).
My question is will it costs 4500?(Approximately USD $70)
zzz, 29 Sep 2013How do I replace a battery??To replace battery of Z first you need to buy new one from ebay.
Cost around 25$ included shipping. You need to buy new Waterproof Battery Cover Adhesive Tape Sticker For SONY Xperia Z, also from ebay. That cost around 5$ and you need to heat up battery cover of Z all around and try to remove one side of batt cover then all with plastic flat head screwdriver. This procedure is very hard you can see some videos on youtube how is made. After you remove the cove just replace the battery. There is a small connector unplug and put the new battery.
Next step is to clean the old glue and carefully install the new adhesive sticker tape and the battery cover.
THIS IS THE PROCEDURE BUT I HAVE NEVER TRIED CUZ MY Z BATTERY IS STILL GOOD JUST 2 MONTHS OLD IS MY PHONE.
NOTE: IF YOU DO THIS THERE IS A CHANCE THAT YOUR PHONE WON'T TO BE WATERPROOF ANY MORE(putting back your battery cover with that adhesive sticker is very risky and you won't know if your cover is good sticked to the phone)

Murshi, 28 Sep 2013Ipone 5c or xperia z more better?If you prefer performance, camera and better apps go with iPhone 5c. BUT if you prefer a phone with much more use, go with xperia z as it offers OTG, Bluetooth,NFC and Wi-Fi direct transfers.
