If you want to get a rich colorful phone(over-saturated) on the go. Then Note 2 is for you. Cause you could use the stylus provided on the phone if your hand is too big. But if you want to get a better camera with a performance on the go. xperia ZL is for you. xperia z and/or other waterproof phones have issues where there's no ventilation to let the heat out.

It sucks. Thought upgrades to an OS was to make it more efficient. Not a big fan of the change to the multitasking window. Liked it a lot better when it was a small pop up on the right side and didn't take up the whole display. Overall I really enjoy the phone. Had an iphone for 3 years prior and will not go back.
Well, I have a habit that every once a year I need to buy new phone (because It's outdated android version or gaming is very laggy) thats why I need the ZL to last for 2 years minimum. I like gaming, and browse the internet especially watch video online. Also I can install apps in the future (My iPhone 3G is suck. I can't even install Facebook because It required iOS 5 or later) -_-
I'm afraid that when I buy this phone, Next years I will regret it. So users PLEASE HELP ME!!! I will very appreciate it. I will take other opinion (Like XPERIA SP etc)
Regarding Xperia ZL's USB, is it also USB On-the-go just like the one on Xperia Z?
Hi guys, which one is the best btwn sony xperia ZL or ZR bcause in my place the price is almost the same..tq
first loading system when turn on device, the battery life decreased 1%.
when open application next, decrease faster. even had turn on stamina mode.
anyway, always bringing portable charger to face this battery drop.
Im mightily confused between Z, ZL, & Note 2. I'm bit worried about problems in Z like overheating, earpiece malfunction etc while note 2 is a solid phone in this regard. But note 2 is using a dated cpu and gpu comparing to Z n ZL. Also each phone is having a unique advantages like water proofing, IR blaster and superb battery(n2).But i can trade in waterproofing and ir blaster anyday if battery life is what I'm getting in return. So it comes down to better battery life of n2 or better gaming performance of z & zL(as cpu benchmarks are acceptable for both z and N2). Pricing of al three devices are around 30k or 500$ so its never a concern. Also i really don't care about camera or how much ppi the screen is pushing out. Please help me come out of this terrible dilemma
xperia ZL IR remote does not work on manual setup. Its manufacturing defect. Sony does not have any solution for it yet.
I'm Filipino and i am planning to buy? can you give some more opinions ....
redX, 26 Jul 2013Have your phone really start working with Manual Setup of IR remote control ? can it transmit ... moreyes, and yes i know about the issue.
android: generic 4.2.2 most recent update
XRGB 2+: works, max distance 3 meters
Genius TVGO: works, max distance 4-5 meters
Infra 48oo: works, max distance 2 meters
7" SILVER LCD tv: works, max distance 6 meters
ok what i do is: on the remote control app> add device> manual setup> chose any, then push power (i always start with power), learn signal info appears so "start", when the next screen shows place original remote control at about 1 cm (or about the thickness of your small finger) away from the phone (obviously pointing at the IR blaster), keep the button on the controller pressed, do not press it multiple times, KEEP IT PRESSED.
when the phone says it learned the signal, don't teach more signals, push next and then test it, chances are it will be working (my old led damaged phone also worked), now u can edit this new remote and add more buttons, also you can change the color palette; also i have noticed that the most difficult signals to set are channel +, volume + and the number 7.
also i must tell you that it was too hard to make the remote learn signals when it had the branded android, i am strongly against branded software as it is full of bugs, tends to make phones slower and drain more battery, what i have seen is it also blocks some of the phone's features, doesn't update at all, and has a lot of google play apps blocked... etc.
on a very personal belief (not proven ofc) i have the feeling that branded android also comes with spyware (talk about paranoid), so i strongly dislike it

Pls recheck it and confirm, then many of us will also give the phone to service center.

Andro, 25 Jul 2013is it true that the xperia zl sensor only available in xperia C6502?what sensor?
if you talking about the barometer, i have no idea
see i have the c6502 which supposedly has it, but so far no app recognizes it, if you go to forums you will see that it appears to be disabled or something.
judging from what the apps (which is the only way a normal joe would test the phone for barometer), tell you, i would say simply that the phone doesn't have one.
either way is really a shame, this phone is awesome.
ash01, 25 Jul 2013only thing stoping me from going for zl is screen protector and glass breaking issue many hav... moremmm i wouldn't go along every video or comment on the internet, here is my personal experience.
ok first of i finally decided to take my ZL for repair, since the notification led was not lighting green, all colors but green, everything else worked, but i got so annoyed i took it to repair, i got a new one now, which i have tested with everything you can test this phone, mirror screen, NFC, GPS, BT, IR blaster-learn commands... etc.
so this one is fully functional.
now as a response to your comment, i went to a sony event where they where showing the ZL, i was on a table where 2 phones accidentally fell of the table and it was so crowded that both where stepped on, one of them was by a woman on heels, the screen was facing up and hold all the heel pressure on, the other fell with the screen facing down, so the plastic back cover held the "step on", all the guys from sony did after the incident was pick the phones, clean them and keep showing them, i took a look at them and only the back of one was scratched, not even the glass; when i got this new they told me that it was strange, since most ppl go there just for configuration issues, a guy took a working "showcase" one and hit the counter with it, "see this phone is quite strong", i took a look at it and it was fine.. (not that i would ever do that to mine) then, someone had just bought one, and she dropped it from the counter, which is at about the height of an average person's chest, however, nothing happened to the screen; i have seen some nasty videos on youtube, and i do understand your concern about the screen, but i haven't seen the first one breaking or scratching on real life, what i have actually seen is how it withstand abuse o.o
I am planning to bye eXperia ZL any bad comments about it ????? any bad points which telss me not to bye???
only thing stoping me from going for zl is screen protector and glass breaking issue many have broken screen in one drop and 2 ir blaster does not work all the time
