Cristie, 08 Mar 2014Hi guys, i'm planning to buy zr but m stuck mostly between zr and zl. Can anyone suggest me w... moreDude if you want future proof gaming and comfortable single handed usage, waterproofing and if you plan to root and install app2sd, go for ZR
If you're more into Internet, videos, showoff, get the zl.
Also if your phone hangs(all smartphones hang at least once in a year as no phone is perfect and if you install custom roms) it'll be a bit of a problem in the zl whereas in ZR you can just remove the battery.
Hi guys, i'm planning to buy zr but m stuck mostly between zr and zl. Can anyone suggest me which one is much better. And also suggest if there are any issues in non removable batteries that is the case wid zl..

anyways if SP release the firmware Build number 12.1.A.1.192 a bug fix for 4.3 update i may be happy to stay with SP

SP is shi*ty in multitasking, you open chrome and music together and what happens? The music stops playing.
And the benchmarks in gsmarena is not always true, they said in antutu, ZR scores around 18000 but when I try each time I get it between 22000-22100(android 4.3)
In t-Rex gsmarena says 32fps but in real life it's giving me 39fps offscreen and 58fps on screen
And epic citadel it's giving 58.6 which is better than sp.
And quadrant, it scores around 9100 in Android 4.3 however in 4.1 it gave around 8500
Whereas my friends SP(ANDROID 4.3)
antutu never crossed 15000
Epic citadel 58.2
Trex offscreen 30fps and onscreen 44fps...
And both has the same ram configuration but ZR has twice the memory.
And processor nowadays all apps are made to use the potential of all 4 cores where the ZR trashes the SP by a very large margin.
Also it has additional features like waterproof, dust proof, 13mp camera premium design when you turn off the screen, you can no where find the difference between the bezel and display whereas sp has a cheap design, even the cheapest China mobile will have those lights and anyway you'll get bored off it in a weak...
The phone was great for 2 weeks until it stopped connecting to wifi... no real fix by sony to this issue so be careful...
shivam, 06 Mar 2014Hey guys help me out
Im thinking of buying this phone
so can you guys tell is it a good phone
... moreGo for it man...!
It is one of the BEST Phone SONY has offered.
I owned it since 3months.
No issue at all.
Anas, 05 Mar 2014You shouldn't regret too much. I am also an Xperia Sp user :) ... besides 2 gm ram and quad co... morei definitely understand your point there, however i do beleive you have noticed the bugs after the 4.3 update the phone became much slower and lags frequently, if not then you are a very lucky man. [ considering all the people in xperia sp comment page a lot of people like me are experiencing it ], anyways i agree that on single core test xperia sp tops the ZR bec it is clocked at a higher speed 1.7GHZ compared to 1.5GHZ but that is only with a small margin. in epic citadel too the difference is not that much. multi threaded performance is much better for multi tasking and switching apps, ZR having quadcore and 2GB of ram will do it smoothly unlike my SP. also i think we will experience less lag on ZR bec of it. also bec of having a slightly better chipset, it tops in quadrant and antutu bench test.
all in all if you gonna look on overall performance and specs, you will see clearly xperia ZR is better. better ram, slower but more cores to avoid lags on switching apps. SLIGHTLY newer chipset. camera resolution is better bec of 13mp. waterproof. ideally i think ZR will be run smoother than SP. -unless of course IF sp release the new firmware build update to fix the bugs i will say otherwise. [ no official annoucment yet though ]

I am also an Xperia Sp user :) ... besides 2 gm ram and quad core, xperia sp is absolute beast at single core PLUS at Gaming! The xperia sp scores better than any of other xperis (including all the Zs) ! Also, in Epicel, The unreal engine 3 test, Xperia sp beats all of the other xperia's and pretty much all the phones out there by scoring 58! This is the quote from gsm arena themselves:
"But most games will probably want to run at native resolution, so we're including Epic Citadel, which uses Unreal Engine 3. Unreal Engine is popular with mobile game makers, so it's a pretty important test. Here, the Xperia SP was able to top out are charts, but before we get too excited, let's keep in mind that the test is run in native resolution, which in the SP's case is 720p. Most of the other top scores are from 1080p-toting devices." -- meaning that the SP kills the ZR as well as ZR lacks single thread speeds which xperia sp has! Xperia zr scores 57.2 while SP score 58.. which is at the top!
Anyways, in the multi thread scores, abviously the ZR is going to beat the sp considering it's a quad vs. dual.. but in single threading xperia sp is all the way!
Another point! Xperia sp score HIGHER in Geek Bench 2 in processing power and memory and performance test! Xperia ZR MIGHT have a slower memory (RAM) speeds than of Xperia Sp's .. this shows that the Xperis SP isn't a bad choice at all as a phone considering its price! Be happy with what you have as it's one of the fastest andriod device for Unreal Engine 3 gaming !!!
ShFq, 05 Mar 2014Which One is Better Xperia ZR or Xperia SP?i'm a xperia SP user, and at the moment i feel regret for choosing it than Xperia ZR, if only i have more budget i would have gone for Xperia ZR, choose ZR man, it has 2GB ram for better multi tasking,13mp camera and also quadcore chipset. it is also water proof.

Have been using this phone since June 2013. This is my honest opinion. Good camera, Good interface, good screen (not the best but very good), never had probs with bluetooth, battery will last you a day on heavy usage. Very good build quality. Survived a nasty drop from the top berth of train without any visible damage. Tend to heat up a little on heavy use but it has not caused any problems, you get used to it. Plays all processor intensive games I've tried flawlessly.Also tried apps like FLmobile, caustic, runs very well.The front cam is lousy vga (why sony? why?). Never tested its waterproof ability and don't intend to,but I have used it in the rain no probs.(keep all ports closed always). Using a chinese brand temei dock for charging, very convienient. Overall very happy. Have also rooted and tried many different roms on it.
