C6602 and C6603. The only difference between them is that C6603 is capable of 4G LTE and C6602 is only 3G.


2. The phone is waterproof. If you really love the phone then do not put it under water. This phone is first generation of Z series and it's water resistency is not as good as the latest Xperia Z3.

3. 4G (LTE) capability depends of your operator in your country. C6603 is 4G LTE, C6602 is only 3G.

I got the Xperia Z in the beginning of 2014 (yes, its an old phone and the Z2 was released). Needless to say, it is the best smartphone Ive ever tested. Better than the iPhone 5S, Samung Galaxy S4, Htc One M7, etc. I had experience with 5 phones, and I chose the Z. I just love this phone. Even though it will be forgotten in mid 2015, this is literally the best of Sony in a Smartphone.

My Xperia Z is in Black.
Purple is good but black is unique.

I've never tried to put the phone under water. It's water resistance is good if accidentally get in touch with water.

Backup your data then make a factory reset from settings menu and connect your phone to PC Companion. Once it's connected click check for updates and then click repair my phone.
Next the pc companion will download the firmware file from SONY servers and will ask you to turn off your phone. Then you have to press the volume up or down(try with both) and plug the usb cable.
The flashing process will begin.
Once the process will finish then setup your phone.

Few days ago I updated my phone manually to 4.4.4. Because the 4.4.4 is still new you have to wait some time for the developers find a way to root this update.

I found a tutorial for rooting the latest 4.4.4 for Locked and Unlocked bootloaders but I haven't tried it yet. I'm too busy now days.
This is the link:

If you're running 4.4.2 then you can use the towelroot app which is one of the easiest method of rooting a phone.
Google it.

Note: Factory reset will wipe all the data on the Internal storage. Please make a backup first.
