Just got this phone a week ago after my iPhone 4 Had some glitches that I couldn't claim on my insurance due to them being 'manufacturing' defects-collapsed lock button and it being out of its one year warranty. I'm so glad it did now because It made me look at other phones due to Apple being so naff for their price. Apple are selling sub quality products at premium price with one year warranties only... Hardly screams quality. Anyway, the XPERIA z... What a lovely phone! Stish, amazing memory capacity for the price and the ability to go up to 80GB with SD card is phenomenal. Glad I changed to android. I think the reason Google play has 100,000 less apps is because there's less carp, more free quality apps and less nasty "lite" or demo apps than iTunes.
The screen I'd incredible... In some ways it rendering tablet I got for on the hoof entertainment (being a military girl and going on exercise a lot I wanted something to take on the more cushy ones for entertainment without the bulk of a laptop!). Even SD films are incredible! The camera is amazing too... And the screen really compliments it. So much better than even the iPhone 5 which my other half has.
The texting and keyboard are fine if you coped with an iPhone.
The face unlock is novel, but unnecessary and not 100% but who Cates website just fun and you can still unlock with a PIN, Password or pattern which are more secure anyway.
Email accounts/calendar/ contacts sync up nicely on the phone Inc. Other email providers with gmail.
Multi tasking is super.
e ability to turn off mobile data, WiFi, GPS, etc etc etc from the home screen in fantastic and really helps save data if you can logon to WiFi and also battery from quickly and easily turning them off.
Battery is cracking, especially compared to iPhone and considering it's power. I use my new phone all day figuring out it's quirks and new things and still have 30% juice left after work and heavy usage.
Sound is cracking as is headphone audio, which I fully expect from a Sony device.
Phone is pricey but less/ on par with iPhone's and you get so much more and better quality for your money.
If you have an iPhone now, you are missing out and I'm so glad I converted although I swore I never change back once got my first iPhone. Apple just don't have a comparative Product on this yet!
I have been using this beauty since 2 weeks the phone is just awesome in every aspect compared to the phones i've used so far cant be away from the phone for even a minute BUT
the phones heats up very quickly while playing games or using internet and battery drains very quickly even after keeping the stamina mode on apart from these 2 issues yhe phone rocks i just hope the heating and battery problems gets resolved Please SONY help your fans out.......

Xperia Z boiled in hot pot,
For those who worry that a little heat from the CPU will destroy the Z. Try to boil your HTCs and Samsungs first and then lets talk.
Rng, 05 Apr 2013Just got my Xperia Z 2 days back.
Its awesome in terms of speed and multitasking! The screen ... moreMine doesnt take so long to charge, depends on our personal definition of what is long and not.
It will charge slow on other chargers, are you using the charger that came with the Z?
Best phone on earth.... The display is really amazing... Did a direct comparison with the super amoled on Samsung galaxy note 2.... The bravia engine 2 really livens things up... Best display on the market!!!
Persian USer, 05 Apr 2013do you know anything about the number of XZ units sold by Sony so far? im really interested to... moreSorry frnd. I don't know that exactly but,
Sachin thapar told this news.
Sony have top 3 place in Indian market and Xperia z is mostly selling model in 2013
Consumer electronics giant Sony India has earmarked a mobile marketing budget of Rs. 300 crore for 2013 calendar year to create space for its Xperia brand of smartphones in the country.
"We will hard sell our Xperia brand of smartphones in the country for which a marketing budget of Rs. 300 crore has been earmarked," Sachin Thapar, head (IT and mobile businesses) of Sony India said Tuesday.
Sony, which had earlier tied up with Swedish firm Ericsson for getting a foothold in the Indian mobile market is giving a new push to position itself as a major smartphone brand in the country.
"After the departure of Ericsson, the brandcall of Sony phones has increased substantially," he said.
Launching the new generation Sony Xperia Z (Review I Pictures) smartphone Kolkata, Thapar said the size of the mobile smartphone market in the country is 3.3 crore units per annum, out of which 15 lakh units are in West Bengal only.
Thapar said that Sony's present market share in the smartphone category is nine per cent in value terms.
"The smartphone market in India is growing at 70 percent per annum. We aim to garner a share of 13 to 14 percent by next fiscal," he said.
Thapar said that the company is aiming to earn a revenue of Rs. 3,500 crore from sales of Xperia during 2013.
Which one is better, more stronger iPhone 5 or Xperia Z? And which one you advice me to buy ?
The best phone ever made by Sony!!!!!!
The world's best phone!!!!!!!!!!
Just got my Xperia Z 2 days back.
Its awesome in terms of speed and multitasking! The screen and display are marvelous! I loved the camera, but somehow i did not find it that great being a 13MP. But taking photos underwater was fun.
The most important thing i missed in this phone being a Sony fan was the CAMERA BUTTON! did they just forgot to put it in??
Issue: only one that I have is that it takes a lot of time to charge the battery. :(
Anderson Tan, 05 Apr 2013Had been using this phone for about 2 weeks. Here is my experience
Awesome screen... moreNo grainy photos & burning heat on the back side?
Both these are my greatest problems!!
Guys the front is Dragontrail Glass, not a normal glass... while the back is Gorilla glass. The one in front of your phone was just used at the back of Z.
This is the best Smartphone in the market so far: Bath friendly & is weighting less.. Picture quality is the best ever
