0/10 - Horrible customer service, sluggish performance, slow updates, fragile body, and terrible camera
Within six months, the charging port stopped open. It took me a couple of months to find the the place to fix it, and they charged me roughly $70 for fixing the phone, and it came back with a loose back cover. A month later I got water damage, but luckily, rice helped. Also, the camera isn't sharp, the screen has bad viewing angles, the performance is sluggish with the KitKat update, the body is extremely fragile, and battery life is way below average. I don't recommend purchasing any Sony phone.
Wow great phone ever.. better than 5s and s5.. sleek design and sexy.. updated to kitkat .. still no problems at all.. don't follow the haters opinion especially Samsung kids..using this phone for the past 14 months.. in love with my hero.. kudos to xperia team for making this wonderful device..
Hi i have being using the phone for over a year and have had no problems,except my battery which gets drained very fast.But i guess it will happen to all smart phones as there are many applications on the device.so basically weather you buy the Samsung s5 or a Iphone you are bound to have the same issues.overall the phone is fantastic i would recommend this to any of my friends and family members.

collin78, 23 Jul 2014i bought this a couple of weeks ago.
HORRIBLE phone and it really SUCKS!!!!!
sony update... moreThis phone is one of the best. I'm using it for a year and 2 months. No problems at all. When you update to 4.4.2 you should make factory reset. That will fix all the problems. I've never experienced a signal loss on this phone. Do a factory reset.
how to solve the problem in fast draining of battery? im always playing so is it really normal that my battery is draining as fast as 12 hrs/1 full charge?

sony updates are UNRELIABLE. after the upgrade the signal strength dropped recklessly and NO NETWORK available.
HEAVY BATTERY DRAIN, POOR SIGNAL, VERY SLOW NETWORK
even if u plan to buy/ already have one, NEVER UPDATE to 4.4.2
xperiazlover, 23 Jul 2014Hi, as I've said in my last post, I just flashed the firmware with build number .233Excuse me, but you received the compilation 0.230? Or just you went straight to 0.233? Cause Sony is now launching kitkat 4.4.4 that is 0.233 and is solving the battery issue for z, and then update it with 4.4.4

Htc 816 is not good either as a tab or as a phone.
keerthi, 21 Jul 2014plz help me guyz ..am plng to buy a cellphone around 25k which one is best,xperia z or htc 816... moreif u r havin a budget of 25k.. then u shud go for htc 816... its much better than sony...
screen of htc is bigger as compared to sony
camera clarity of htc is superb
and much more... just go for htc 816
Just moved from Xperia Z to HTC One M7 and am really happy with it. The kit kat on Z was sad. Lag in opening application, lag while scrolling setting page, UI minimize/open bugs, sad camera were really annoying in Z. I did love the phone before, but not after the update. I would recommend Htc One M7, it falls in the same Range, almost and is lot better than Z.

No lags at all, very smooth and fast. I just flashed the firmware, but it is very awesome!
Battery stays longer but charge longer too (its ok with me though). I am very satisfied with the update. Kudos Sony.
Marki, 21 Jul 2014I have Xperia Z C6602 but I still didn't get the Android 4.4...why?Update still not released for all countries
tarek, 20 Jul 2014i fear from laggy update reviews and satisfied with nice working jelly beanok as u like ... but for me there a lot of noobs who cant use smart phones and that happens after each update and u can see topics when 4.3 relaesed and ppl crying after update beocz of battery draining and lag and fkn shit ... so i dont want to take care about ppl who give feed back .. they are not professional :)
