Q8i, 28 Jul 2013Thnx 4 ur review, i want 2 buy this phone, but after i read ur review i change my maindHmmm, it seems the ZU is available in Malaysia' capital with pricing rm2299, not sure why Sony website still showing coming soon, apologize for the mistake previously...
But if you doubt about the stylus performance, go check on this blog news from Gsmarena demo several tools can/can't be used as stylus in ZU, http://mblog.gsmarena.com/sony...ets-tested/.
And about the battery performance, yes, the ZU has a rather small battery with only 3050mAh capacity, but consider a Samsumg Mega 6.3 with a 3200mAh capacity receive a 64hrs endurance rating from Gsmarena, thus ZU should have score at least 50++hrs as well, plus it had a stamina mode.
But the rest like buttons bad position n bad speakers, I have no clues on that since it is not available yet in many countries including Malaysia. So, should u trust him/her? I rather trust my own eyes and hands to test it myself when it is available in Sony store, don't you agree?
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2013There is no Document Editor in any sony phones...Do you know: that you can download and install whatever applications you like on android smartphones?

please make a battery review and full review for this gadget as soon as possible
1stly , I'm not as lame as some of the jokers here , complaining when they don't even see the actual units . 3G version is selling now in Malaysia . 2ndly , I bought it cuz i thought sony would have improved over their xperia Z , ended up , nothing to shout about .
KuehBangKek, 28 Jul 2013Dear Sony , thank you for making me waste my money buying this crap . Thank you for all the mi... moreDid u actually buy this? Coz I thought it hasn't released yet.....I'm planning on buying this phone, coz i was quite impressed by its features....
There’s just no getting around the fact that Sony remains one step behind the competition.
It introduces an all-glass design just as others start to move away from it, and, most importantly, it fails to provide a compelling argument for purchasing it ahead of HTC, Samsung, or even LG’s alternatives.
Xperia Z’s lasting legacy will be one of unfulfilled potential and inadequate differentiation.
I met a Sony manager two days ago, he had this phone.. It has a really good screen, and in fact isn't that big. Looks nice and promising

Why can't this brick also have one? It is not worth the price.

So why complain about it? Did you not try it out first?
Tcool, 27 Jul 2013Don't say none. Huawei Ascend Mate does have a camera flash and also the latest Samsung Galaxy... moreHello, The Galaxy tab 3 8.0 does not have a LED flash either according to the GSM Arena pictures. :)
That said I wish Sony made this 7 inch. With those thin bazels that the ZU has, it will be a good size for a tablet.
Dear Sony , thank you for making me waste my money buying this crap . Thank you for all the misleading reviews on your screen writing capability we saw online .
1 - Ball pen dont work , plastic stylus dont work . Only pencil and fingers ? Seriously ? Pencils ? How many of us carries pencil these days ? Or is there gonna be a pencil for Xperia ZU accessories ? Even writing speed have to slow down , if not it wouldn't be an accurate capture .
2 - Power + volume buttons located at the middle on the side . I didn't know Japanese are all right handed . Try using the phone with your left hand to answer a call and then , please advice me on how to hold this phone WITHOUT accidentally pressing on those buttons .
3 - During Xperia Z , there has been a lot of complains on how the flip used to cover USB get loosen over time due to opening and closing , making it " Un-waterproof " . Yet , in Xperia ZU , u repeat the same dumb mistake . If you dont know how to make a good flip , please refer to motorola Defy . Or , for your convenience , refer to phones like Fujitsu F-02E , F-06E and Sharp SH-06E . Those flips used on these phones is what we need , maintaining it's water resist after months of usage
4 - 1mm or 2mm thinner will not be a problem if you make a bigger battery . Do bear in mind your phone is 6.44" , not 4.4" . Why don't you just put a 2000mAH battery and make it even thinner so you can brag and advertise as the thinnest phone .
5 - Again , poor speakers quality . I dont expect it to be loud but at least on crowded street , I can hear ppl talking to me . And that is IF I manage to hear my phone ring .
Of all the phones released this year , sadly , purchasing this phone is my biggest regret .
S4 and Xperia Z are great phones guys so pls stop fighting. Buy anyone of them u like.
However, I will say something about the screen technology the both companies employ. Unless u plan to change phones often there is no use buying phones with Amoled technology, no matter how vivid and amazingly sharp they look. U may say that S4 beats XZ in that department but it's just preference, u may actually love the way XZ displays things plus u get to enjoy same quality for years.
So friends, list what u want from a mobile phone and research a little to find which company best represents it. Try to understand the meaning of some of these terms they use so u don't end up buying new phones every six months... Amoled, TFT, Andreno 320 and 330, Snapdragon 600 & 800. Performance wise, is it worth ditching Andreno 320 with Snapdragon 600 for 330 with Snapdragon 800?
Personally I prefer Xperia Z design to S4 and I sure prefer Sony's UI implementation but then I always long for those fun/cool stuff S3 and S4 do... The Smart this and that...
