Did anyone update your ZL to Android Lolipop? Did you face any problem? Last night I got the message that my phone will download new update to 5.0.2 and I accepted. After the download it said unable to install, try again. The second time it said the same thing. Then I did a factory reset and then tried to download. After downloading this time it started updating the phone. Finally when it was "updating applications 263 of 270", it suddenly turned off. I tried to turn it on, but it went off again. So I put it in the charger and it showed 91% when turned on. But since then it started to turn of within 5 minutes. I took off the SIM & memory card before the factory reset and didn't put it on till now. Yet, after putting them back it didn't start. Can anyone help me out? It's such a nice phone that I can't make my mind to throw it away. I'm from Bangladesh, Asia. Can anyone help me out with the issue? Thanks in advance. Ciao...
Have a brazilian version (ZQ). The phone is amazing! Nice specs, nice performance. No problems for me. The only issue is battery, doesn't follow the Sony standard definitions, cause drains too fast in 4G connection. 10hs per day and that's it. Gaming drains faster, but I can't play everytime. Waiting for Lollipop. Common, Sony!! Help us!!
Mine is the ZQ version (the Brazilian version of ZL). After one year and a half of daily use, even on my 3 years old child, it never crashed or misbehaved significantly. After having a Samsung S3 before this one, I feel relifed because the S3 was a headache to me. Excellent mobile and my next one will be Sony again, no doubt about it.
After a year of use I was very disappointed in this team. I had chosen this and had a terrible experience. Poor performance, with terrible screen viewing angles (Bravia Engine 2 does not help much),
camera with poor quality and noisy, updates lag. I do not think back to bet on a smartphone Sony.
My front camera option has been disappeard from the camera. And when I go for service test. It shows that secondary came is not supported in ur device. Can anyone hlp Me?
I'm using this phone about 2 year, no issues till now. Battery is still lasting for a day with data connection on all the day, surfing, taking pictures, downloading and making calls with moderate use . This is the best compact phone with 5 inch screen and my favourite till now....!
I dont care about haters.. accidents happen. One of 100 products will be f-ed, but i got a good one... STILL USING. Happy customer here.
buy this phone and have a chance to go to the repair center daily..good luck
Avoid buying Sony from carriers. This Rogers ZL is bootloader locked, a pig on batteries and have replaced two off warranty.
If you are having the boot only with charger or new code battery life issues change the battery yourself.
Can't wait for Kitkat to Lollipop upgrade and yet another battery replacement as a result...
After three decades as a Sony gal I call it quits. Sorry Sony, your mobile division has driven me to Korea.
Prabhat007, 13 Apr 2015 I had the exact same issue & when I took it to the Sony authorized center they also said ... moremy mobile shuts down automatically and it keeps off until i plug charger in it. Service centre says that its motherboard issue and they wants it to replace with other mobile by paying some amount of money. its out of warranty. can you please help me out with this?
The only weakness of this phone is battery and it's not waterproof. Also the Sony service Center is suck..
I have use it for 18 months, and when I used it for 11months i have battery issue and Sony replace it with new one.it took 2months to change my battery!!

Anonymous, 25 Mar 2015I am facing battery problem too, I guess. The Sony logo just keeps coming on nd off. I've been... more I had the exact same issue & when I took it to the Sony authorized center they also said the same thing to me. But I did not lose hope. I did some research & found it out to be a simple battery issue nothing else. I ordered for a new battery online & had to visit a local mobile repair shop to get it replaced & now my phone just works as smooth & fine as new.
Reach out to me if you have any further queries.
GOODLUCK !!! CHEERS !!!
