This phone is cool.

Battery issue can be cured with a Power bank. It's not so much of cool solution but when you're going out for a tour or something.

It's the best solution available so far.

You can go for EVERREADY powerbank. It's good.

or any other like Amezer. But go for the big one.

10000 Mah ones only.


About the heating issue you're facing the best available solution is put the phone in water with FLAPS closed. Cool instantly. :)



Atleast I do it. Good use of being waterproof and a bit of fun.

This mobile bring smile to my face every time when I put it in water. Always excited.

I've not got it so far.


A good user here mentioned that it needs to be DK-28.

As DK-26 is available for 2116 INR. Although it's for Xperia Z..


SO definitely not solving ZR users purpose.

However, the dock charger made for ZR is not available for delivery in INDIA. It's only available for Hongkong.

You can buy the flap and watch a YouTube video and try it replace yourself or go to Sony center and get it repaired. It'll anyway cost you a few bucks.

If you're in a hot environment, then it'll heat. Be careful with that as once I was just surfing the Web in 3g under direct sunlight and the phone switched off due to overheating in no time ;)

Can't say every manufactured piece is 100% alike. It's process, material etc create differences.. but still I love my zr :D

> In reply to cmeze @ 2014-05-03 13:08 from veFI - click to readDude just compare your mobile with your friends mobiles(high end) and then post :P
I've used my friend's s4, zl, Z, l, desire x, Lenovo k900, Optimus G and I think it is better at that range.
If you've upgraded from a low end phone(like the galaxy y from which I upgraded), you may feel that it's battery life is worst.
But when you compare with other higher end models you'll get a clear idea.
Also about the heating problems, the s4 and Lenovo heats alot more than the ZR.

I purchased this phone just 2-3 days after you..and I too don't find anything extra ordinary..it's endurance rating is 62h but battery compared to that drains out very fast..I don't even have much apps installed on my cell neither any music or vids..don't have memory card either still it's not giving what it should...and the flaps I guess will soon start giving problems too..I now think I should've gone for moto g instead lol.

Girls and guys using this mobile get your hands on dock chargering as soon as possible.

USB charger would ruin the flaps.

Also buy a bluetooth headset for calling or listening music.

Avoid use of flaps as much as possible.

else it won't remain waterproof longer.


And get it insured :) I got it.

I'm using this mobile for now more than a month.

The experience is great. whether it be underwater or not.

Problem is with the battery backup.

Now that I've my hands on it. No matter what anyone says my usage being very normal.


I get maximum battery of 8 hours.
This includes full date 3G on with around every now and then whatsapp usage.

maximum of 30-40 minutes calling a day.

No games or surfing internet.

Little use of Maps application may be 5 minutes.
Lastly an hour of video playing that too is exaggerated.

20 Pics a day.

I find hardly a chance to say this is good battery backup.

It's initail 4-5 Hours and battery comes to 50%

Then I just have to keep the mobile data off and switch it on only when needed.

It's pretty normal phone. Nothing extra ordinary.
