Prasad Anchan, 13 Dec 2013Hi guys,
I am from Bangalore India, I am planning to by ZL december 2013 end, its now in affo... morehard to answer, the ZL is an outdated phone, i was born outdated due to the chip-set sony choose for it; however, i had mine almost since it came out and i still feel with a new phone, every app runs smoothly and it can play new games without issue, while some people complain about it getting too hot, mine doesn't, and battery last long enough, my only complain so far is the front camera, i have no idea why sony decided to put it in the lower part it makes you look terrible, but the phone itself is awesome, i am very happy with it.
never the less, yes, the chip-set is outdated
I am from Bangalore India, I am planning to by ZL december 2013 end, its now in affordable price for me(30k)
I have checked so many products in net, thought of buying nexus 5, but finally decided to buy ZL.
The reason for this:
Compact 5 inch phone ever saw
I love music feature in sony phones(currently having LWW)
Initial thought of nexus 5 dropped only for the reason that I think sony makes good music phones.
My question is, is it a good buy at the end of 2013, or will there be any other phone within 30k price which is better than ZL
Sony has officially updated Xperia Z and ZL to android 4.3,check the link below:
Has anyone tried streaming music via MW1 or MW600 bluetooth headsets with the ZL? Did your MW1 & MW600 display the track title? I'm asking coz I did this last night & to my surprise the track title was displayed in my MW600 & MW1. I thought this feature will only be available in 4.3, my ZL is on 4.2.2 build 10.3.1.A.2.67.
Till date review---
OK.,,,ACCORDING TO ME its a good phone And to my surprise, ZL never let me down at any circumstances.
1.Its packed up with lots n lots of features.... I mean, little less from S4... But c'mon ZL is only 29K...
2. Ready available of update-- from 4.1 to 4.2...One thing tat i noticed when it was 4.1 is, when i long pressed the power button the screen shot option was available directly in it... But after I updated it, its gone...
3.The Headset--- It was awesome and sound quality was gr8... Nothing can beat SONY in this field, U know it right??? But I never tested it in a noisy environment.,,. I'll surely test it and post u later.,,.
4. Camera--- (No offence)Micromax Turbo has a 13mp back cam AND 5MP front cam and its price is pretty low than ZL(ma frnd owns it & its a gud phone).,,. But still Why do u choose ZL..,. Cause its from SONY.,., If u feel like this Then stay with it... Its camera quality is gr8 and i'm starting to loose my feelings towards ma Sony 18mp Digi-cam bcos of this phone.,.
5.Screen--- Full HD... what else needs to be said. All games run without any lag bcos of its processor, ram and its full hd screen adds a flavor to it..
The only thing that bothers me is that, the touch goes unresponsive during USB connection and while Charging, which is little bit annoying.. Is there any cure for this,., PLZ post about it guyzzz.,.,.
2 months before.,.,
My budget was around 20k's.I shortlisted S4 mini & Nexus4. The top selling brands never give out a best configd phone for that rate(according to me and ma study about phones @20K's :-p) and even if there is one, it will surely have a major drawback(Admit it)... So, I had to increase ma budget to 30k's to get this amazing phone... Why am I saying this??? I don't know.,., I didn't even spend 10% of the time to review ZL than that of I spent for reviewing S4 mini..,. I jus went for it hoping its a gud phone... And it was finally.,!!!
If u find this review inappropriate, skip it. If u like it reply me,, I'll post more reviews...
hi,does anyone know if the 4.3 update will bring to zl bluetooth aptx?
Kingmax 32GB class 10.
Is this Sd card reliable? And will it works well with xperia ZL with this class 10 SD card?
xperia power, 10 Dec 2013Hi,
I own one and it's a big leap from my Xperia S. Question is, if I put a 64 GB Sandisk E... moreno, it will not run at full speed, but it will give more "performance" to the apps stored on the SD card.
here is a review/test ran by pc magazine
also you can check this:
as you can see the difference between the grey (ultra) and the gold (extreme) is not that big, and anyways it will not be noticed on the ZL, and the extreme pro may add a little more speed, but not very noticeable.
however, if you can get such a card, go on!, you wont regret it, and if you get a 4K recording device anytime soon you will already have the card for it.
on a personal note, im currently using the grey one, and im very happy with it, you really notice the difference when using camera apps with effects, but i would wait for the next roll of phones with 64-bit processor and 6 GB ram (i'd say in about a year and a half, maybe earlier), to get a new type of card, so i'm staying with my ultra until then.
I own one and it's a big leap from my Xperia S. Question is, if I put a 64 GB Sandisk Extreme Pro Micro SD card (95 mbps read), will it run at full speed? Anyone here knows what Bus speed its card reader has? I'd really appreciate if you guys can answer this question. Thanks!
This is what I've been waiting for as 4.3 brings AVRCP to android, song titles can finally be displayed on my MW600 & MW1 via Bluetooth streaming. Sony's official 4.3 update is coming very soon as leaked images of the Xperia ZL & the Xperia Z Ultra (two of my favorite models from the Z series) with Sony's official 4.3 firmware have surfaced.
Anonymous, 08 Dec 2013your words dont hurt, but keep this in mind: this is not a sony board, is a board about a son... moreOk dude you're are smarter than me enjoy ur phone. I just shared my experience with sony zl that's it, and I'm not yelling at anyone like u. Don't use harsh words. buying a phone for 29 k and giving it to the service centre on the same same day which was faulty and will you accept that sir, And u say it's my attitude like using a Ferrari for 100 miles running flat tire.. Ok I'm not here for a fight enjoy ur phone, mine had issues hope ur phone doesn't have any... Any way thanks bro for your advice.. Will take it but say it in a soft way..
Rajan M, 07 Dec 2013sorry bro no foul language its my opinion and each of us differs, right now i'm owning a nexus... moreyour words dont hurt, but keep this in mind:
this is not a sony board, is a board about a sony phone, and to post opinions respectfully, which you didnt, as you can see we all love this phone, and acknowledge its pros and cons, but as you stated:
""one of the worst experience with this phone poor display,battery and the 13 mp camera useless compared to others which are 8 mp. not worth for the money. s3 is far better phone than this in that price range even though its an outdated model... i'm not a samfan boy""
you do not post any support to your complains, as other users do, you should state the following:
one of the worst experiences?
why? please do elaborate (sauce on this), pics or it never happened
why? "sauce on this", video or it never happened
13 mp camera useless compared to other 8 mp?
how? luma? chroma? contrast? saturation?, "sauce on this", and pics or it never happened
battery not good?
did you tried another roms? any tweaker? etc?
if you don't have anything to support your argument please refrain to post such nonsense.
also as this is NOT a complain board from sony, i advice you to post all the issues at sony blog:
as they do hear (even tho sometimes it takes long), what the users have to say about their products, proof of this is the IR issue (now they replace faulty units), so you should post your story with the correspondent proof of it, there, so we can all get improvements on those issues on the next update from sony, that is the reason of that blog.
now, as what you did not only appeals to the "whiny fanboy" profile
(since it doesn't have any proof, just bash about the product and does not point to any actions taken to remedy the issue),
but also proceeds to demote this particular product, which clearly puts you on the "black campaign" class user.
now after reading you last post, you reinforce this about you.
your story its like that of a daddy's boy who gets a ferrari and gets a flat tire, then comes to his friends: "dude this car is a piece of shit, its tires go flat.. i went to the repair center and they took 20 days cause the rim got trashed after i drove 100 miles with the flat tire, im going back to my hummer"
that... is how you sound, and how intelligent and competent you look like, which in another words mean.. you are a troll
anyways to all of you who have had any issues with any sony phone, please do report them to the sony blogs so we can all get better updates, i hope they will upgrade the camera app and add the AR modes of the Z1
..and please forgive me for feeding the troll u.u
hope no-one else does

Leo, 07 Dec 2013Dude comparing ZL with an outdated horrendous looking S3 is really not acceptable,you said bat... moresorry bro no foul language its my opinion and each of us differs, right now i'm owning a nexus 5 which is the best android device till now. i said the camera of zl and the display is bad u can compare it in youtube. i've used s3 and zl too, comparing both s3 is crisper that's bcoz of the amoled and this one is tft lcd which should be better than the slcd of the samsung or any other phone in that category, but it's nt bought and sold zl within a month losing 8k.....also had a camera issue on opening my box which the service center took 10 days to replace the phone.... if my words hurts u i'm sorry
