Hello Xperia Z users,
I just want to give you guys some tips in using the CAMERA. I'm a former Xperia L user with an 8MP Camera. I have some fascinating shots with just an 8MP camera with the Exmor RS sensor. How did I do it? Simple.
1. Always shoot against the light.
2. Use of touch focus feature.
If you are going to take a landscape shot, don't tap to look for a focus. For Portrait enthusiasts, make sure to focus on the Head rather than the body. For Macro users, always make sure that your target is not moving.
3. One thing I have learned and have experienced using all Smartphones, there are some that has slower and some has faster SHUTTER SPEED. I compared this with a friend's Samsung Galaxy S4. The S4 has a faster shutter speed and actually all Samsung Products has. Xperia Phones with Exmor RS sensors are different, they are slower. Why? Because they are still processing the image after you press the Shutter Key. What I usually do is, make sure you update the phone to Android 4.2 or later to get the Superior Auto feature. Just set to Superior Auto, then make sure that Image Stabilizer is turned ON. ISO is either automatic or 100 (for outdoors and daylight). Now, every time you take a shot, make sure to HOLD STLL your phone for 2-3 seconds after pressing the Shutter Button. HOLD which I mean DO NOT SHAKE YOUR HANDS WHILE HOLDING THE PHONE. This is to make sure that you shoot what you to get. This is also a requirement for Portrait and Macro shooters.

Yes, drain so fast and heat . But It's only at the first. You can check out the battery usage, you'll see the most usage is for google services and then google play services. After fully charged 3 times, all back to normal condition and even more. And yes, xperia z with kitkat is awesome.
After updating to 4.4.2 my xz is lagging on settings menu and when i m pulling down the notification window.
