Your going for built quality and we all know that a plastic device that screen can shatter almost on the first face down drop is not a good device.

The camera has been updated by Sony for both Xperia Z and ZL with the latest firmware update. I think this review deserves an update. :)

sonymobile7, 09 May 2013I have question for zl owners and for gsmarena are the loudspeaker results posted in the revie... moreThe comparison was with the xloud function turned off. Just like the when they compare displays the BE is also off.
The JB interface section made a point stating that the notification area was not available from the lockscreen. It may have been due (not certainly) to the fact that the security was set to something either than slide to unlock. I have previously owned an Xperia Phone (XSL), and this has been the case, and a reason why I stopped using a security measure to lock/unlock my phone.
Comparing my Galaxy S2 with an Xperia ZL at a showroom, my S2 black images were so black that they lacked detail, like a part of the AMOLED screen just did mot light up. Black images in the ZL were not so deep and I could make out various shades of grey.
I checked out PSY's gamgnam style in youtube on both at the same time, and it was clearer and sharper on the ZL with greater detail in dark scenes.
I think the "not-so-black blacks" issue with the ZL is overblown, while the "very deep blacks" character of the S2 is overhyped.
Will consider upgrading to Xperia ZL when my S2 contract ends.
For the ZL you can now say -
It's a Sony.
I have question for zl owners and for gsmarena are the loudspeaker results posted in the review are with xloud on or off?
marcelobibiano, 01 May 2013ZL, Nexus 4 or S3? Help me please!xperia zl the best (have 4g lte)
the panel is not bad at all. I own the Xperia ZL and unless your trying to rip the back panel off its held together really well. And I prefer the small size compare to most smartphones with 5in screens.
Xperia ZL owners: "Dubious back panel quality" how bad is it, really? Something to be concerned about?
sony xperia zl is the best phone ever, best camera ever, and best display. much better than galaxy s4 and one x and iphone 5s or note 3
DIMS88, 24 Apr 2013i am looking forward buying a new smartphone fr my birthday (5 june) i cant choose between the... moreXperia Z since its water proofing, I have it and i always take it with me while running or hiking.. When i get home i simply wash it and its new again :)
Besides even if you heard about bad picture quality i'm a photographer and i can tell that you can't expect better from a phone the pictures are very nice especially if you use the HDR feature, you can also take videos under water which is very cool :))
Previously I was using a samsung galaxy note and htc one x and now the xperia zl. I can say that this phone is excellent. The 13mp camera works well outdoors, the battery is one of the best compared to other phones I've owned and I really like the design. It is also easy to handle due to the compact size and button placement. The wifi disconnection problem and also the unclear mic with my old galaxy note was a pain but xperia zl does not encounter this problem and does everything well. I still have my htc one x as a backup since that is a good phone too.
Transian, 27 Apr 2013However, according to Sony SG website, LTE is avaliable.
http://www.sony.com.sg/product/xperia+zlOh sorry, my bad, but why it is indicating the ZL support LTE in "Network" section but not support LTE in Calling (under "Performance" category) section?
Try compare the spec sheet with the Z
But anyway, thanks for correction, ;)
