I've had the XZ for three months, and love the industrial design-- outstanding, beautiful finish and fit. Battery life is excellent, I can get two days in the fast-Stamina mode with normal use. Coming from an HTC M8, the XZ speakers are good, but not as loud as the M8. Performance is fast, really quick going between apps, etc. I like the squared corners, makes it easier to hold and use with one hand, than with rounded corners like Samsung/Apple.
Touchwiz sucks compared by Sony's UI. I've used both of them. Sony's UI is minimalistic but very smooth. Touchwiz is just beautiful but loaded with useless apps. Sony optimises their UI very well and it becomes lag free. Unlike touchwiz.
