One of the besy flagship phone by sony.
I was buy a year ago, old stock BNIB with no waranty.
The major issue was battery malfunction, make my phone sudden death (only worked while device on charged).
So i try to solved this issue by bypassing connector on my battery (made jumper) and my phone working like a charm till now with no more issue (except lil bit heat on my backcase when i playing game, but i tought that was normal, right ?).
However, there is available cynogenmod 14.1 (nougat 7.1.1) for XZL make this device still up to date.
Thanks sony for making this awsome phone, and thanks to our developer for keep this device updated.
I have been using Xperia ZL for 3 yrs now, initially it was a good phone but trust me, it's garbage phone. It has lot of issues like battery, Camera, body heating, speakers & many more. One day suddenly my mobile turned off and it isn't turning back on. So, I checked on google and i come to know it's battery amlfunction issue, then went to service center and they said they don't repair Xperia ZL. Only one thing i want to tell everyone "DO NOT BUY SONY MOBILES, AND BIG NO TO XPERIA ZL" period. warning you all from my personal experience.
I just got a ZL and it only worked for a little over 2 months and now seems like garbage, cause it wont turn on. so hoked about the whole thing. didn't expect that to happen.
Having the sony xperia for 3 years and one month makes me happy. The battery with 3g network use can get me up to 8-12 hours (the usage hours are approximately 2 hours- the other hours is in standby).
By falling the microphone is damaged (got 70%down), now I'm talking only with handsfree.
I am counting that the "free fall" accident had happened every 2 days, so having the lcd monitor ok without damages it's a fact that you can't ignore.
(My son's Z3 got broken lcd in one month....)

sonyuser, 01 Sep 2016My Xperia ZL turned 3 yrs old in December 2016. Battery drains extremely faster these days and... moreHi, My ZL is 3 years old as well but still works like a charm. The only issue is the earpiece speaker volume has dropped and I have to hold the phone real tight to my ear to hear the person speak. My battery drains fast as well but this is due to the age. Are you having the same ear piece volume issue?
