You need to take some time to learn how to use a smartphone (thats right, 5530 is not a smartphone by any modern standards, the N900 was Nokias first smartphone). Take your time and find out what has happened the last 6-7 years, you have a lot of catching up to do. Experiment and look around in your phone and remember you can often longpress on things to get options, and lot of other things that you have not seen before. Dont worry, when you forget the dinosaur ways of Symbian you will love the Z.

If you are still on 4.1.2 then your phone is in jeopardy, it will get so hot that over time the back panel will come loose in the top corner near the camera and then your phone is no longer water proof. You have to update to 4.2.2 as soon as you can and hope the damage is not already done.
That said, its normal for powerful phones to become quite hot, or else they would not be faster than cheap low end dual core phones. Also Galaxy S4 had so many complaints about heating up, Samsung listened to the S4 owners and made the phone cooler, but the only way to do it was to reduce the performance, and then they started complaining about lags and low performance instead. It is against the laws of physics to have both high performance and low temperature (a 50cc scooter can be aircooled but a 180hp Yamaha R1 would not last many seconds with such cooling, power=heat, just accept it), this level of performance will produce heat. When we get Intel 16 nanometer chips the temp will go down a bit on a similar performance level but until then you have to accept this tradeoff.
I bought a XPERIA Z from Singapore Mostafa Center on last 01/02/2014. Using this phone I have some bad experience. When I use it over than 30 minitues for voice call or music play or video play; then phones top 1.5" area becomes ver hot. I don't understand why this problem on going my phone.

NickChesterfield, 09 Feb 2014Please tell me is body made of glass,metal or is it plastic?Hi Nick,
Xperia Zís frame is made from glass fibre polyamide, the same material thatís used as a metal substitute in automobile parts.
Xperia Z on front and back have tempered glass that is a lot stronger than conventional glass, and stronger than Gorilla Glass. This glass is called dragontrail glass.
Hope you got what you wanted.
NickChesterfield, 09 Feb 2014Please tell me is body made of glass,metal or is it plastic?Its body (chassis) is made of rubber like material used in cars (in Z1, they used metal) while the back is made of glass. Both back and front glass is covered by a thin layer of protection for more protection from smashes. Please do not remove such layer.
