I've used Sony bridge for Mac, PC companion for Windows and even the java from internet browser. The don't website clearly states there is a new build since 25-03-2013 ending with .454 and I'm clearly on .350 yet java indicates I'm already in the latest software.
Very strange indeed. So now I check daily as I'm quite eager for this update especially after I heard users from all the world are receiving this update.
I can blatantly see the update in the website yet I can't update to it. Almost like a tease.
hey guys i'm planning to buy a new phone
around 40k -45k
i'm really confused between iphone5,XZ,Galaxy S4 htc one or lumia 920
i'm music and gaming freak

Anonymous, 03 Apr 2013I had microphone issue in Viber on .350, but it didnt require reboot, in fact i never rebooted... moreBy the way, the viber issue only affected long talks, it was not much of an issue at all. Never had it on regular calls, but maybe i didnt have any very long phonecalls before the update.
Kzl69, 03 Apr 2013You guys are so sad! why you keep suggesting people to stay away from this handset? It's a joy... moreI had microphone issue in Viber on .350, but it didnt require reboot, in fact i never rebooted my phone except for the update, and when i had to turn it off during a flight some weeks ago. Never needed reboot.
Strange you didnt get the update, you checked in Sony PC Companion, right? Just so its clear for everyone who reads this, the update is not available over the air, have to use PC.
I would say dat xperia z is way better than s4. M not sayin it because I own a z or I don't like s4 but first of all z has an excellent and uncomparable design and technology. Whereas all galaxy line up products are similar in looks n design... no one can make out what cel u own whethe its a note 2 or grand or s3 or watever??? N atleast I won't be affraid of getting wet or clicking pics in rain.... Love u Z...... no matter wat comments u get u are the best smartphone available... keep it up SONY
Thala. 2, 03 Apr 2013Sony Xperia z advantage and disadvantages
1. Bravia engine 2
2. Eye catchi... moreNot comfortable to use??? Xperia Z?? Its SOO much better in the hand than Galaxy S3, all phones should have flat sides, you would know if you had a Z, it has the best grip, unlike the terrible rounded sides of galaxy series.
I saw a review that said the sides was too sharp for his hand, i feel sorry for him if he have so weak and sensitive skin, anyone with normal skin in the palms would not feel anything after hours of constant use, that goes for both guys and girls. Unless you squeeze it too hard maybe, the whole point with flat sides is that you dont have to squeeze to get a secure grip.
2013 smartphone ranking.. (1). Xperia Z ,(1) Samsung GS4, (2) LG optimus G pro,(3) HTC one, (4) Note 2,
Hi Sony fan's. I compared galaxy s 3, galaxy note 2, iPhone 5, and
Xperia z performance
The output result is 2 times better Xperia z.
And I still waiting galaxy s4 vs xperia z performance test.
I think Xperia z is better performance. Bcoz Xperia z having Qualcomm chipset
I hope Qualcomm.
Plz wait this April 26th
It's all my own riewe doesn't compared other sites

Kzl69, 03 Apr 2013You guys are so sad! why you keep suggesting people to stay away from this handset? It's a joy... moreThat is the real opinion/review... Pointing the negative and positive for the benefit of all... Unbiased and informational
You guys are so sad! why you keep suggesting people to stay away from this handset? It's a joy yo behold. Users should give their positive and negative feedback and potential consumers should go test the handset out before buying anyway.
So far my only concerns are; microphone a bit funny - sometimes other person cant hear me unless I power off/on again. software issue for sure that needs to be addressed. And on the sony website states the build is out .434 and i am on .350 however when i try to update it says im on the newest software already.
Everything else is superb; screen is fantastic, design, feel of device, weight and size all perfect. In fact, when I go pick up my iPhone 5 again, it feels miniature and I'm not missing it at all.
iOS and android should not be compared. They are on different platforms and aimed at different consumers however it would be interesting to see how android develops as they recognise that fluidity is amongst the top of thier priority list. I have come from iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, Samsung Galaxy S3, iPhone 4S and 5. No android experience is better than this on the XZ. The S3 was a nightmare and I sold it for a 4S even though 5 was gonna come out in a months time (last August/Sept).
Alot people talk about 64gb micro SD and heating issues. For the millionth time it supports 64gb as FAT32 and limits 4GB per file and heating issues exists amongst every device, once they are pushed they will heat up.
There is 0.01% lag which swiping across panes however fluidity level is almost as good as iOS. Considering an open platform that android is, I can say I've taken a chance to give android another go from iOS and I aint missing iOS too much at the moment, If and when apple decides to make a 5" phone I may consider using iOS again but we all know that 5S this fall will be the same size with better internals so it looks like XZ is with me until Autumn 2014.
A great handset and great design. If you choose this you wont regret, if you choose HTC One or Samsung S4 you probably wouldnt regret either until you drop it water.
Enjoy this device and seriously guys that troll, stop it. Its very sad. Like, really.
UK based, running .350 build.
This phone is amazing! So solid and elegant, battery is just fantastic, watching movies on this screen is cool...
