I have a problem.Whenever I receive a message (normal sms), my phone will just on its screen automatically. Since I use swipe screen lock, it's very easily to be unlocked in my pocket.Usually I found this happen when I could feel the heat from my phone. When I took it out, I had 'turned on' a lot a lot of apps.
Why this happen after my update? I did do a factory reset after the update also.
Help me please. Thanks

Now I wait for 4.4.4(it`s in testing phase) and I hope that battery drain and some lags will be fixed.Battery still last the whole day if you are a normal user,but if you play a lot of hevy games, then you can expect about 2.5h-3h of screen-on time

7 days ago my ZL suddenly dead. So i went to sony service center. They cant gave me an answer right away in that day. After 2 days later i called them, they said my ZL's battery had to be replaced, and the cost is $40.

Yeahhhh i had to paid that cost, because the warranty period had been discharged after August 1st 2014. And its ridiculous, my ZL broke right after the warranty cant Acceptable!!

Now my ZL has returned, thank God it didnt take a long time.

Oiya, fyi this is my SECOND time the battery had to be replaced! It was happened 8 months ago!! Hopefully these paid battery will have very looong looooong life!!

When I bought this phone in early 2013 - it was a great device. Beautiful looks, blazingly fast, crystal clear display, great battery life and very stable. I thought Sony had finally got its game together regarding smartphones.

And then they rolled out Kitkat on this phone(4.4.2). An absolute unmitigated disaster. Battery life has plummeted to 3hrs, the phone shut-downs and restarts at will. If it doesn't feel in the mood for google-hangouts- shutdown. Want directions to Bear mountain - shut down. Want to call your parents - sorry - shutdown. And the over-heating ! On so many occasions I have had to take it out of my pocket and put it in the fridge to avoid scalding. The only way I am able to use this device is by re-installing the OS using PC companion on a bi-weekly basis and starting from scratch. Basically, this is how I spend most of my Saturday mornings.

Now, I understand that bugs happen. But the awful part of this whole thing has Sony Support's attitude to this. Basically boils down to "Yeah, we know the system is buggy. Now, suck it up buster and stop whining". At least do me the courtesy of rolling back to the older factory installed Android ... and doing it in a reasonable time frame without expecting me to part with my $600 phone for 3 weeks. Or give me a loaner phone while this one is the shop. It is unacceptable that I need to buy another phone while Sony fiddles around fixing their mistake.

It is this irresponsible attitude and fecklessness that has convinced me to never buy Sony again.

Xperia ZL has definitely battery problems, mine died after 8 months quite violently, battery swelled and destroyed whole device, I got new one from Sony. After 6 weeks battery started to die even it was on 90% charged, then it was worsening, in few days ending with mobile not working even on charger, just restarting... I sent it for repair, I got same mobile back with changed battery and it is working for now.
Last repair is giving me hope, that next time battery dies I will just buy new one and replace by myself.
It's pity that such nice mobile is hampered by such problems.
