The Sony Xperia Z achieves a DxO Mark score of 61 which means it can only place itself in front of older phones such as the Samsung Galaxy SII or Apple iPhone 4.
However, it is far below the best in class such as the Nokia 808, Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3. In particular, it exhibited a poor performance in low light conditions.
have bought this phone about a week. and i notice the screen have dead pixes. haiz, but well over all this is a good phone. yes the speaker is abit soft but can live with it. not as if soft til cant hear. really love sony phones.
after using it about 1 month, my camera suddenly appears black spot syndrome. and in my country (indonesia) it very often happen. and the customer service center sucks very much. even some of sony fans made petition for Indonesia Sony Service

As Z users if we can use Dock chargers and wireless headphones, the water resistance life will remain long..(I hope to buy if those are available in my country) Another important thing is before u buying anything, pls thoroughly check whether it is having manufacturing defects & QC passed..
(((For Sony Android 4ns type *#*#7378423#*#* and it will automatically bring the service menu which shows the entire configuration of your phone and you can test them and also reset it..__ If the kernel version ended with #1 , its QC passed. __ For checking original jelly bean, tap 3 times on the android version and it'll appear the Jelly bean + version and then long press the bean, it'll appear small moving jellybeans)))
I think most of the people comments about this smartphone are fake and reasons will be that the persons may concern to IPhone Or Samsung company etc to down its demand in market to not buy the phone. I have recently bought this cell and It is awesome in many ways but I am very wonder to check its video movies on it because its video quality is quite weak camparely to Samsung Galaxy S3. Other all things related to these phone is quite outstanding comparely to Samsung Galaxy S3. Before this cell I was the user of Samsung Galaxy S3 which had two big problems 1) Weak in Signal Capturing. 2) Samsung Galaxy S3 Battery Life was also very dull in 3g mode. So that is why I sold it and bought Sony Xperia Z yesterday. In my point of view Sony Xperia Z is fabulous in every circumstances but it has not good in watching video capamrely to Samsung Latest mobiles which is very wondering for me by using 1080 x 1920 pixels, 5.0 inches (~441 ppi pixel density) and Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 and 13.1 MP, 4128x3096 pixels features in this mobile

Saad, 18 Jun 2013I just aold my xperia z and bought iphone 5
What a delight to get rid of that useless peice ... moreYou bought an iPhone and your talking about others being swindled? Oh the irony..
If you want a good Android phone for an excellent price then consider the Nexus 4.
These phones, including the Samsung and HTC phones are slower and full of manufacturer crap.
good looking .... stylish .... it has evry thng for show up....
but...... still m not hppy with it .... short time battery bckup & low sound speakers .... :(

The problem of terrible battery life and very low speaker volume makes the Xperia Z unsuitable for me.
Non removable battery and fragile glass casing which is a major finger print magnet is also a worry.
Also the screen cannot be replaced…only buy a new phone…a terrible and rip off design by Sony.
The S4 has a better camera, better battery life and great speaker volume.
The S4 is currently the undisputed winner of Smart phones by phone reviewers, so I will be buying the S4.
