Don't worry these days Sony phones play all most all types of video format and FLV & MKV plays like butter :D so chill and order this sexy bitch
TheNeighbor, 24 Feb 2013And we've heard reviews with battery lasting only 4 to 5 hours of screen time with media.
... moreHaha are you trying to act smart
I've heard of a guy who got 5h55min screen on time.
Thats the thing it's screen on time not battery on time.
So your screen can last 2 days and it can have a screen on time of 4-5 hours or have one of 1 hour screen on time depending on what utilities and apps are running in the background.
what matters is the overall usage stats and the breakdown there of.
If I can get 4-6 hours of screen on time watching media on a 1080p screen while running lte and wifi and other things in the back ground I'm happy with that cause the longest I've ever watched media on my phone was 1hour max.
And if I can use my phone hard with a 1080p screen and get 12 hours out of it to me that's amazing cause my current android with the same type of usage gets 5-6 hours.
I want to see what other smartphones can get more then 12 hours on a single charge with hard usage like that on 1080p screen maybe only the Huawei Ascend D2 with it's bigger battery 3000mah as it's the only 1080p rocking more then 2330mah
abro22, 23 Feb 2013Does this phone plays all movie formats like flv, mkv etc with subtitles like S3 plays in its ... morepity, even non-smart people have started using smartphones, thinking that smart phones will make them smart :o
everyone knows that if any smart phone is not smart enough to play all vid/music formats then FREE players can be downloaded from PlayStore.
and seriously, a person who uses S3 and planning to buy XZ doesn't know this ?
Please troll somewhere else TROLL.
U guys worried bout battery life seriously?

abro22, 23 Feb 2013Does this phone plays all movie formats like flv, mkv etc with subtitles like S3 plays in its ... moreI have some problems with playing mkv and avi files.
Avi is not played at all; mkv - depends. One has sound but no video; others have video but no sound.
When I have installed MX Player - all works with the subtitles and even with Polish letters :)
Still - default player could be better. Perhaps after some updates it will work. Time will show.

Anonymous, 24 Feb 2013A 1080p TFT screen with bad viewing angles is what you want is it then, for $900+ in Europe. ... moreYou want and like the bad angles, reports of washed out colors and short screen-on time (4 hours+). Go get it. It's your US$900+. It does look good.
Screen) OK I've heard so many people talk trash about the screen.
But I've have seen close up vids of the display and it looked nothing like what the haters talked about it actually looked amazing.
Speaker) I've heard people complaining about the speaker yet it's freaken loud
Camera) I've heard haters say the camera is not that wow yet the vids and pics it capture look good actually better then the ones on gsmarena
Battery) I've heard people talking alot about the battery being bad but I've heard of people having 40-50% left at the end of the day with moderate to high usage I've heard of heavy power users having 12 hours of use out of their xperia z's.
You can check out the xperia z forums regarding battery real world user testimonials.
GSMarena is full of haters.
HTC one is a good phone
Galaxy S3 is still a good phone for 2012
Xperia z is a good phone
Galaxy s4 will be good
All these phones have good features and software I dont see why argue over small differences. If we arguing with bb and apple fanboys then thats a different case But android to android is pointless.
abro22, 23 Feb 2013Does this phone plays all movie formats like flv, mkv etc with subtitles like S3 plays in its ... moreyes it plays all those video formats on the stock player i was even surprised that it plays mkv
But if there is a file type it doesnt play you can download a video player that supports the format you want from the play store
max, 24 Feb 2013Hey can sum1 from sony can adequately suggest me about this new sony xperia z ! As per till to... moreDude Android is the best you will enjoy it.
As a first android phone xperia z is a great start.
There is so much you can do with an android mine is 3 years old but can still do more then all BB's and iphones
Only thing with android phones is battery life people tend to leave apps running in the background then wonder why the battery is draining so fast.
Keep an eye on what apps you download on it.
xperia z when used moderately should last you 2 days but when used extensively should last you 12 hours.
dear all if u wana check d xz price in India dan plz go to Sony Xperia Z official page on Facebook it will b showing 35 k approx

don't be stubborn, the viewing angles are perfect for me like this, don't want that people see what i'm doing next to me. it's a positive thing !

I-am-the-Man, 23 Feb 2013I like the poor viewing angles !! cmon .. the phone is just for my pleasure not for anyone nex... morei think that's a rather lame defense for the viewing angles. i like xperia z and i don't give a damn about poor viewing angles. however, privacy can't be used as a reason because even with the poor viewing angles, texts can still be legible from the sides. photos can still be perceived albeit with color and contrast changes.
please let's not make that kind of reasoning. sony xperia owners are more intelligent than that.
just say you don't mind about the viewing angles because you don't need them.
abro22, 23 Feb 2013Does this phone plays all movie formats like flv, mkv etc with subtitles like S3 plays in its ... moreHow does it matter? Use vlc beta or mx player. They have loads more features than the default player anyway.
