I'm thinkng about buying it, should I do it ? I was thinking also in note 2 or nexus 5, which of them all is the best ?
I GOT A SONY XPERIA Z 11 MONTHS back.. now the touch is not working as there is some crack on d sreen....they told that it cant be recovered under warranty,,..i asked them to replace the screen ...they told that even it cant be done as it is unrepairable set....they asked to pay 80% of the cost to give the new set...can any one suggest me how to get it repaired please.....
had the phone for 25 days now and I must say I love it! :D
with most comments about the phone, I basically experienced the same thing.
the screen is fantastic. I love the UI and the colors of it. I'm not bothered about the viewing angles, not one bit. it is a personal item and having bad viewing angles is actually a plus for me, specially if I'm on public places/transportations. 5/5 for me.
music is excellent. the default player is Walkman and it's sound is great, more so if you have a good pair of headphones. I'm using a Sennheiser and the sound is just fantastic. 5/5 for me.
camera is decent. I've never had any good camera phone and I'm never impressed with any camera phone that I've had, except for the Nokia N82. now that's a great camera on a phone. on Xperia Z it's quite ok. not bad but not great. my s3 took better pictures. 2/5 for me here.
design and build is great. I love the shape and weight of it. I actually prefer smartphones that are not too light, and this one's perfect. the only thing that bothers me with the whole phone is the ASF (anti-shatter film). Sony installed tempered glass, which is great cause it is scratch resistant, but they added that ASF (which is highly scratch prone) on top of the tempered glass. and we are supposed to install another plastic sheet on top of the ASF. so basically, two plastic cover on top of a scratch resistant glass. quite a dumb idea really. I wish they just went with like the glass on galaxy S3. gorilla glass with oleophobic coating so that we don't have to fuzz around with it too much and still avoid scratches. I had my S3 for a year and never had a single scratch on the gorilla glass. besides the annoying ASF on the screen, 4/5 for me here.
performance wise, this phone rocks! UI is very smooth even in multi-tasking. I had no issues with the 4.3 os on it yet. I've read some the had issues with it but mine doesn't have them. so far, 5/5 for me here.
battery life is normal for a device this powerful. with moderate use it reaches upto 20-22hrs. not bad since this really is one powerful device. but then again, Sony could have just given us a better battery on it. 4/5 for me here.
so overall, I'm really enjoying this smartphone. really great. I rarely use the camera (if I want great pictures I use my actual camera) so it really doesn't take away any value of it for me. I forgot to mention, the glass front and back (and the clear plastics on the sides) are smudge and fingerprint magnet, specially on the black and purple version. I have the white one and I installed a matt screen protector on the back so, smudges and fingerprints are really not noticeable.:D anyway, that's about it.:D
kemo king, 13 Apr 2014which is better xperia z or nexus 5 ?Nexus 5 definitely. I think Xperia Z will only win against the Nexus 5 in the Looks department.
waiting for final kitkat version is more better having a beta version like other sony xperia coustmers-- you can feel from their opinions that they are not happy frombeta version
honey, 13 Apr 2014greatttttttttttttttttttt phonewhich is better xperia z or nexus 5 ?
if i connect my 2g datacard to my sony xperia z using otg cable it will work or not?
Hi, I've been using this phone for weeks (moving from S2 and S3), and here are my personal review:
-Yup, the viewing angle issue is there, but it is not that bad (like being told in a few website), overall the screen is awesome. The screen is sharp, bright and natural.
-Not so good. Even with stamina mode activated, I'm barely able to go beyond 24 hours with moderate usage.
-Awesome, everything went smooth and no stutter or lag like Samsung product. This probably due to Timescape is not that heavily customized like Touchwiz. Sony Timescape is simple like vanilla android but more beautiful.
-U definitely gonna love the front and rear glass design.
-The picture quality is lower than S3 or S2 even though the pixel is higher. It produce a lot of noise. The shutter speed is also slow. But overall it is still decent for daily usage.
Overall I would dare to suggest this phone to the one who look for performance, beauty and simplicity.
