i'm confused about this screen protector they gave...
so i've to install or it already installed...?
Phone is marginal at best, screen is meh, phone quality is like talking through a tin can and a string. Loud speaker is useless, phone in speaker mide is scary bad.
Little flap on back for SIM and memory card is cheap and easily broken off and lost.
Camera is nothing special.
Should win best mediocre high priced phone for 2011.
below is kind of User Review of the phone
I have been using this phone for the past 2 weeks and following is my opinion of the phone
The Loudspeaker of the phone is not very loud(neither is the supplied headset) but the audio is crisp and good news for casual listeners is that the clearAudio+ option takes care of sound automatiocally
videos are an absolute pleasure to watch and the VPT option makes the viewing experience even more pleasurable
The photo clarity is not the best in class but there are apps (perfectly clear for android eg) which fix the photos and store them in the orignal resolutuion
playing games is an absolute pleausre on the big screen and heavy games like NFS Most wanted run without a hitch on the device.
the 2 GB RAM allows many apps to be open simultaeneously i had NFS Most Wanted running in the foreground with another game paused in the background
the remote control app works as claimed and can also be used for set top boxes of popular DTH/Cable suppliers
the phone though claimed to be thicker than others in the competition does not feel so in the hand even if u hold a thinner phoen say galaxy S3, i wonder waht they have to say about Lumia 920 in terms of those specs
the plastic back also feels solid and good to hold in hand (though certrainly not good to look at) but the baxk can easily be covered by the supplied snap on cover in the box
the camera which is at the bottom works great for landscape calls and is certainly good to use even in potrait
the benchmark scores of this device may place in the 4th or 5th place everywhere but the real life user experience is hardly bothering no nopticeable lags were seen at all
Finally i would just like to say that the phone feels gr8 to hold in the hand and is very ease to use and handle go for it!!!
falesh, 24 Apr 2013Sorry to ask the question i once again saw the review and the SONY logo in Xperia ZL is not in... moresorry about that I have done so much reading and seeing reviews on youtube not sure if sony logo printed on the screen protector or not anymore> i have orderd mine today so excited after long time of thinking
At last the review!!!
I was worried about the call quality but the test shows that its very good..thats nice now i can peacefully get my hands on the device..
Thanks for the review but one thing is till missing the loudspeaker review.
amjadov, 24 Apr 2013Can you explain what is the defferece between restart and reset? Is there any data loss in cas... moreof c0urse theres alot diffrence between reset and restart. Restart means it will turn off your phone and automaticaly turned on (d0nt ask anym0re, thats it).. Reset means that when u reset it ask ur security code then itll shutdown then automatically turned on and all of your phone settings from, ringtones,wallpaper, screensaver etc. Will be set to default set. As u purchase it from the very begining u hold up your phone! Gets?
Would be great if it were a force restart/reboot button since ZL battery is non-removable therefore you can't simply remove battery to fix a freeze so that's where this little yellow button will come in handy.
Pressing little yellow button equals removing battery, that would be nice.
falesh, 24 Apr 2013that button is for reseting the device in case it freezes..reset not restartThanks for the answer but what kind of reset it does? soft reset or hard/factory reset?
I read that for soft reset, you simply press and hold the Power key and the Volume key at the same time for about 7 seconds, that would prompt an automatic restart. For hard/factory reset, you'll have to go to: Settings > Backup and reset > Reset phone > Erase everything, so I'm wondering what kind of reset this little yellow OFF button does.
amjadov, 24 Apr 2013Yes sure I have seen the reviw in pocknow site and the removed the screen protectorSorry to ask the question i once again saw the review and the SONY logo in Xperia ZL is not in the screen protector unlike Xperia Z its on the device itself...
amjadov, 24 Apr 2013Yes sure I have seen the reviw in pocknow site and the removed the screen protectordid you remove the screen protector yourself i mean i didnot notice it in the review
iSJ5, 21 Apr 2013But the viewing angle of the ZL is awful. firstly check ur source.. it's NOT awful. have u even tried that in reality?? well i checked that viewing angle s**t. one of my frnds have got it.. and FYI IT IS NOT AWFUL. rather OK VIEWING ANGLES.
this is just another f*****g "term" off samsung's ass...
and spread to the world by AMOLED fans(i.e. sammy fans)
waiting for my comment to be modified by them moderators :D
falesh, 24 Apr 2013Are you sure about ZL because ZL from other sources i heard that it is the not the case with Z... moreYes sure I have seen the reviw in pocknow site and the removed the screen protector
amjadov, 24 Apr 2013The sony logo printed on the screen protector for both z and zlAre you sure about ZL because ZL from other sources i heard that it is the not the case with ZL... And about Reset it will do a settings reset ...it is like forcing a phone to switch off when it becomes unresponsive or freezes, you will have to manually restart phone by pressing power button later
falesh, 24 Apr 2013that button is for reseting the device in case it freezes..reset not restartCan you explain what is the defferece between restart and reset? Is there any data loss in case of reset
Xperia Z's SONY logo gone !!
So can some one conform same about Xperia ZL..has anyone removed the screen protector from xperia ZL please let us know
Xperia user , 24 Apr 2013For those who need recomendation about buying xperia z and zl.I think xperia zl is lame compar... moreI dont agree with you ..xperia Z is a great device but in terms of sound and compact design ZL is better
For those who need recomendation about buying xperia z and zl.I think xperia zl is lame compare to z. Ugly design no water resistance awkward front facing camera placement.these reasons are why it is cheaper.please don't buy zl.if you need a super phone just increase your budget for like $50 (at least in my country).just go and grab a xperia z in a shop near you.:-)
