Anonymous, 27 Jan 2016Same here, used for 2.5 yrs without any issues, now upgraded to Z3 compactI also upgraded to z3 compact in 2014 cos the storage capacity wasn't very big, and the battery didn't seem to last too long. However, now I'm using my old phone again cos I accidentally dropped my beloved z3 compact and its touch screen stopped functioning. Well, with moderate use the battery life of zr isn't too bad. It still works beautifully and will be handed down to my hubby after my second z3 compact arrives;-)
T-R-S, 04 Apr 2016strongly agree sony's Z series display is damn fragile and easily breaks (to name a few Xperi... moreI guess people's experiences with the Z's vary a lot. I've had my ZR since September 2013, I've sat on it, dropped it on the floor lots of times, I inadvertently left it next to a heater oven so that it got boiling hot and it still chugs on, there are only minor scratches on the display that you can only see at certain angles if you look closely. I've been meaning to get a new phone tho, mostly because of the measly 8GB internal storage. But other than that, it has served me well for over 2.5 years.
T-R-S, 04 Apr 2016strongly agree
sony's Z series display is damn fragile and easily breaks (to name a few Xperi... moreI don't agree, I have been using ZR for 2.5 yrs now and my wife using Z for same tenure, no issues faced for hardware/software ever. As far as service centre support is concerned can't comment as never needed to visit one.
I have now upgraded to Z3C due to internal storage of ZR.
suhas, 02 Apr 2016Sony models ZL,ZR & Z ultra all r unrepairable models and have to b literally thrown away ... morestrongly agree
sony's Z series display is damn fragile and easily breaks (to name a few Xperia ZR, Xperia Z that I've personally seen)
and then comes a bigger frustration when you are told by Sony "sorry, there's no support" even if you would like to get it repaired at your own cost. DAMN :(
you pay 20K for this phone (ZR) and then there's no support at all after a year, just nothing; looks like the customer support executives are trained like that by Sony - WTF
Sony models ZL,ZR & Z ultra all r unrepairable models and have to b literally thrown away if any problem crops up after expiry of their 1 year warranty period.This fact is not mentioned in the brochure/terms & conditions of warranty.Really,it is difficult to understand how a renowned company like Sony could do this to its unwary customers.I am a victim of this & could not even get any explanation from them for adopting such a policy !
Now a days I am facing problem with my device (xperia zr). My phone automatically switched off and when I try to switch on it starts optimsing my application in which it becomes hot and due to which it again switch offs. Apart from this sometimes it doesn't charge even with its original charger. Please tell what to do.
very bad device to use bcause xperia zr is not repairable...............................this is so bad
very bad thing in xperia phones, no repair available. I suggest Sony to please improve their services towards android phone. your customers are suffering a lot because of poor services
Sony xperia zr is a great mobile, its camera is very good, I upraded to my sony to 5.1 lollipop and its performance is great and its video quality is great to view at any angle, this phone is water proof and dust proof. I will say that this phone has great choice to buy.
ankit479, 01 Feb 2016will android 6 marshmallow come for xperia zr..?noo :/ becouse cm13 worked
ankit479, 01 Feb 2016will android 6 marshmallow come for xperia zr..?Nope, neither will Z1C
It really depends on the phone that you would like to install it.
I highly recommend you to visit the CM website or XDA Developer, you will find further assistance there and also with phone that you would like to install it with the correct CM compatible with the model and also the correct Gapps.
Zex, 03 Jan 2016Using this phone feob sept 2013 still running great..and now using the cyanogenmod 12.its awesomeHow you flash CM12 rom can you suggest me?
I am using this phone since more than 2 years, a well balanced phone and SONY was kind enough to update this amazing device up to 5.1.1. Thanks SONY, only problem is internal memory is just 8GB and you will soon run out of internal storage.
I used this phone for more than a year.. never had any problems... all updates ran smoothly (this is a rare thing for a Sony phone since each of their updates have some annoying bugs).
but one day it started restarting suddenly, and after few reboots, screen went black, wouldnt charge, wouldnt turn on. Sony repair center was asking 100 SAR just to check what the problem is and give a quotation!! i took it to mobile market, none of them could fix it, turns out the motherboard got fried!! this is very bad from Sony!! never going to buy another sony again!
