have this phone since it came out, dropped it countless times, it has not broken. i've even threw it on tiles and it hasn't cracked a screen. this phone is a beast!!! i've dropped it in a bucket of water intentionally, yes it still works flawlessy!!!
ignore all those trolls saying the screen cracks easily, what a load of bullocks.
only con is the battery only goes through a day under heavy usage, but if you make the odd call or two, it'll last two days easily.
Sony is very good with its consumers, they offer the latest lollipop android on this xperia z!
thanks Sony for being awesome~
Had the phone since they released it, only dropped once, and I kept the software up to date. It has warming problems for the last year, battery life pretty poor, and has finally kick the bucket - sensitivity problems with the screen and difficulties at times with it charging.
Screen of my Z is flickering too much when I press slightly higher than normal.... not only the screen.. When I press in the two sides (downwards) it continues to Flickering..
What should I do?
Need experts advice
1. battery needs to be charged frequently for it drains too fast and would heat up badly
2. photos are too bad especially when taken at night or in the dark
3. it is durable on the other hand
4. good sound quality for sure since it is sony by the way
5. overall rating, iphone, htc, and samsung works better
I have been very disappointed since I bought the sony xperia z. After upgrading the android version, the call dialer does not work well; calls keep disconnecting every time I make a phone call. I also sometimes can't use cellular data on my phone and even when I can, not with all apps. Sometimes the phone just goes off and it also heats up! The camera is also terrible after upgrading; the images are all hazy and taking pictures at night is just a waste because it's like the flash does nothing! I am very disappointed and definitely won't purchase any sony products ever!
Sony is Great forever im using my xperia z for 3years no problem no warming or anyproblem ...keep your phone up to date...
BE WARNED! Sony waterproof ratings are not as they advertise
Sony repair shop is biased and Sony funds them..water intrusion and phone was used within all perimeters of the manual, yet the repair shop reported a port must have been.open and recommend no replacement! These are uneducated and poorly trained technician from further investigation and Sony has terrible customer service.. Much like a bad insurance company the only deny your claims....phone is simply not a waterproof device.
Yeah...it's great phone....but u have issue with my camera lens from beggining since I have bought it....I have thrice replaced through company,but still the condition of lens same,specially night photoes are very bad.. Like it's been taken from 2-3 mp camera......and also as some said...it's get too hot...after continuous 1-2 hour use.....and Sony neeed to improve led flashlight for better picture quality at night....and last but most frequent complaint of most users.....is it's battery life.....needs frequent charging...
By now I have it for half year and it's going very good no errors, no problems, much better than HTC.
using phone and battery totally gone and switch off the phone, then place the charger and try switch on its not working. please help me....
No Matter what you throw or throw it this thing will take it, had it 3 year's, it's never missed a beat. Yes, it's getting old and out dated, but it still manage's to put dull moment into a great one, Screen isn't a strong point but is sufficiant enough, speaker is okay and profomance for 2016? It won't be awsome but it'll get the job done.
Device build is flawed with covers for charger and sim becoming a nuisance, screen randomly cracked one day and no touch worked ever again, Sony seemed to know this was an issue and replaced the device without ever requesting the original back... same issues with new device so traded up...
Apart from that strong performer, might of gone for later models but got annoyed with crappy Android delays.
Excellent phone I still use today,only problems I've had a few times is the screen freezing up due to my heavy usage! As said before it does like to get a little warm when gaming but what do you expect from a 2 year old phone? I still love it and it serves my purpose so not going to changing anytime soon.
I have this phone since launch date, (2013. January) and my user experience is flawless. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop works great, cant complain, this is the best phone that i had.All accessories including the DK-26 dock, runs great. And a camera is awesome. Really didnt get disappointed cuz all time working Just fine. This phone i would gladly recommend.
