Speaker volume seems a bit louder after update to 434. I can't use it at full volume now, too much for me.
SAM witwicky, 28 Mar 2013anon, i'm not trolling u, ACTUALLY u are trolling on yourself kiddo ! Haha this copycat pho... moreHmmmm! Time for another English lesson. Simple this is a Xperia Z blog and you are quite clearly a Samsung apologist! To troll means annoying other fans with stupid and inane comments on their "blog". So, lesson ended, you are indeed trolling! By the way, it is kindergarten, and that is where you need to be! As for your S4, you can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig andin this case no amount of software will make the S4 anything more than a bit of not so cheap plastic excrement!
brynn, 29 Mar 2013Yes good advice stay away from ebay there are fakes going round and some people have been caug... moreAnd people tend to think it will not happen to them, "i buy only from reliable Ebay users", and all kind of excuses. I guess i was like that also, but then some years ago i got a fake 16GB Kingston card... Would have saved me alot of money and trouble if i had learned from other peoples mistakes, i now hope someone can learn from my mistake and not buy card from Ebay in the first place.
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2013Yeah its a waste to go for anything smaller. And make sure its fast enough to capture full HD ... moreYes good advice stay away from ebay there are fakes going round and some people have been caught out.
goodthings, 28 Mar 2013on gsmarena, they say it supports 64GB external memory. on sony's website, they say 32 GB. Has... moreI got 64GB Sandisk card from Amazon 38GBP and put it straight in my sgs2 right out the packet no problems got 59.46GB ...However I was messing about and decided to format fone on laptop and start again and that's when things went wrong..I using Windows 7..I managed to reformat card in sgs2 and get back to normal..
Best to do anything related to the 64gb card in the fone itself,,i am no expert but its something to do with EXT4 or FAT32 and its not compatible but someone with better knowledge will explain..
A lot of sites state 32GB because that was the highest card at time of review and its using a new XC system and cannot guarantee compatibility..Mines a class 10 and when I transfer 32GB of mp3 it zooms up to 27MB/s initially but settles down at about 7.88MB/s after a while..
Its a big card to deal with so if you have to format getting all your APK'S and vids and mp3 etc back on takes hours..
Frankly speaking is nice but to me the Sony Xperia Ion fairer and better,not because of this but as I have the Xperia only comment on...
Cosmetic of this phone is not very solid susceptible to scratches REST OF IS OK
goodthings, 28 Mar 2013thx, i'll go for a 64 GB card then :)Yeah its a waste to go for anything smaller. And make sure its fast enough to capture full HD video, Sandisk Ultra is a safe bet in that regard. And stay away from Ebay, too many fake.
goodthings, 28 Mar 2013on gsmarena, they say it supports 64GB external memory. on sony's website, they say 32 GB. Has... more64GB cards work just fine, but you may have to format the card in the phone first. Its possible the update (434) has fixed this issue.
Updated to 434 now, and no problems. I guess the person who said he lost all his data was trolling.
The bad thing about updating is that i had to reboot my phone, destroyed my uptime stats. Contrary to what the eccentric people say (Lumia owners) Android does not crash or hang or anything, i guess they are talking about HTC. All my Xperia phones has been perfectly stable and never needed reboots.
on gsmarena, they say it supports 64GB external memory. on sony's website, they say 32 GB. Has anyone tried to insert 64? Please? Anybody?
hello everybody! i am the owner of the new xperia z, but i have to say that my previous phone was xperia s, and i choosed s for the quality of the camera and for the led screen. best combination ever!
the new z has a bit better camera and some extra features compared to s but the screen is really lame! they downgrated fron led to tft and it is b.....it! but i live in uk and the waterproof thing works great, i have tested it!
ANd i also used the front cam a little, its good outdoors but of course the low megapixel count is obvious. Still better than many other phones main camera, easily beats for example the 8mpix of the HTC Butterfly.
And funny thing about Superior Auto, kinda impressive also, point the cam to a baby or small child, and it will immediately display the text "Infant".
btw, about the camera. Summer vacation has now started here, i been more out in daytime and we also been to resort for swimming and so on, and i took some photos of course. Amazing results, the cam is really great in good light conditions, i never before had comments on the quality of my photos in Facebook before but now suddenly i had many. The colors are extremely good, and the details in shaded areas is great, plus i didnt even know it was possible for a camphone to do so well on strongly baklit objects, in this area Z is miles and miles ahead of Lumia 920, and it also beats the Note 2 with a good margin, and it does so with no noise in the photos. Strong backlight can make some photos appear as too dark but all in all its the best i seen from a phone.
Careful when using superior auto indoors, when it finds someones face it will frame it and the text displayed will be Softtone or something, and then it mean it will make the photo really soft, too soft for some peoples taste. Makes people look like they have pretty perfect skin though, no wonder the girls think they look more beautiful in my phone.
Im very satisfied with the camera, its not the best under all conditions but on average it is great, and it produces far less failed shots than for example Note 2 did, so far i cant say i had any totally failed shots at all. The speed of the camera is also something that makes it a pleasure to use, very worryfree and reliable.
Everything I have asked of this phone it has done it in microseconds, every app installed immediately and worked perfectly, I have been on Wi-Fi for over 8 hours and still had more than 45% battery remaining. Copying music across from PC hard disk to phone by wifi did so at 79mbps, or nearly 8 megabytes per second. Screen is so clear and sharp, camera pictures the same.
Only thing yet to try is RDC with Windows 7 ultimate, not expecting anything other than good results, will post back when final opinion is formed 10/10 so far
SAM wicwicky, 28 Mar 2013coolkid, u know what ? This phone is sucks ! Fake battery stamina, bad viewing angles, crap UI... moreHAHAHAHAHA, I just can't stop laughing on this. How insecure and jealous you SAMMY fanboys are.....OMG HAHAHAHAHA. It clearly shows that samsung's time has gone. Its a SONY time.. I really have sympathy for you guys. Your comments are so irrelevant that I don't actually want to debate with you....SONY ROCKS!! LOVE YOU SONY.....
