Hey bro,i have planned to buy this phone. could you explain to me about your experience with this phone.about display,battery life,camera,everything y ou know. and which is better camera Sony Xperia Z or Iphone 5
lyn, 04 Feb 2015saying water resistant for 1m is not true,my xperia z damaged when I used it in a very shallow... moreXperia Z is IP 5.7. When I still used it, I tried splash it with water, it was OK, but I never drop it into water like in bathroom, drop it into pool, too risky. So, I conclude we can't make sure the water resistant will survive or not. Many complaints even with higher rank like Xperia Z1, Xperia Z2, in my country, because of got little water, the phones got damage.
The best idea is don't deliberatly trial error with water resistant phones.
I am using Xperia Z Since June 2013. Everything is good in this phone. But only problem is with Sound, no clarity while talking over phone and if v use long time it will get heat.
Especially playing the games.
sree, 02 Feb 2015hai friends its camera quality low any way to get better quality Select manual mode >white balance >cloudy mode and after take photos no one match the other phones one of the best camera in Xperia z
saying water resistant for 1m is not true,my xperia z damaged when I used it in a very shallow swimming pool and i pay 10k for teh repair at sony service center in manila to think that it is only 3mos old when it was happen but they said warranty is void such a WASTE of money!
Am using this phone almost 2 years till now, there's no problem at all, except the SOUNDS very very bad... POOR! sony please ...heating is not an issue...
i've been using this phone for almost two years now. you have to root your phone if you want to achieve at least 5 hours of screen time. also, use the stock camera app on manual mode if you will not install 3rd party apps such as camera-FV. i prefer the latter. overall, i do not regret buying this phone. its entirely up to the user to maximize the capabilities and explore the options android provides.
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2015from using this phone for over a year there have been problems with it like the other guy ment... moreHad this phone for 2 years now and have had no problems with it. In terms of general phone usage the battery always gets me to the end of a work day (unless my son plays Fifa 15 on it), the build quality is good and there is no discernable lag. The camera is fine for what I use it for and as far as I'm concerned it has been a far better phone than the Galaxy S2 which had a woeful battery. For me battery life is pretty key as there is no point having the greatest phone on earth if its dead by mid afternoon. I think a lot of hot air is wasted on the difference between cameras in flagship phones. The camera on the Sony Zis good but not great and I would still be looking to take any meaningful photos with a dedicated point and shoot camera. If you are a professional photographer you wouldn't be seen dead using a mobile phone to take pictures even if it had an excellent camera. THus for the average user the camera quality in most flagship smart phones will be adequate for taking a quick snap on a night out but should never be considered to be an alternative to a decent quality point and shoot.
As far as it being waterproof or not have never tested that aspect of it underwater though have used it in the pouring rain and never had an issue.
yousuff, 22 Jan 2015actually i am planning to buy sony xperia z next month how is phone give me ur opinionpls which particular model did u get and are u using 4.4 kitkat on it?
Sukki75, 27 Jan 2015Good heavy duty device with profound experience. Look and feel is also great. Good value for m... morepls is the phone over heating really like the phone but am scared of getting it because of the over heating
Jewel, 01 Feb 2015I want to buy this z.but some says it have many problems....did you face it?It has heating problem while browsing. Heating too much. Most of its users experiencing that. The speaker is also very bad. Ring volume is so poor. Even when you play a song, you won't be happy at all.
All other side are ok. Great design and camera. No other complaints.
Buying Xperia Z not even a year and its already dead. I wont charge at all. I really regret buying SONY product...
Emon007, 28 Jan 2015I want to buy xperia z which is made in china and assembled in china . Shall it better for me ?As far as I know, Sony parts came from Japan but assembled in China.
Anonymous, 31 Jan 2015Xperia Z or lg optimus g pro. .pls helpfrom using this phone for over a year there have been problems with it like the other guy mentioned such as battery drain, overheat etc that does happen. And the amount of storage is said to have 16gb though only 11.73 is usable so i wouldnt get this phone unless you dont care about the storage, it is high end device but not good enough.
Anonymous, 31 Jan 2015Xperia Z or lg optimus g pro. .pls helpoptimus g pro,without any doubt...
g pro runs on 1.7 ghz krait 300 processor,bigger screen,and mostly 3140 mah battery,which can give a way better experience than xperia z..
but if you want to take selfies under water,then you can go for xperia z!
