The keyboard after upgrading to 4.3 became even more smarter that it can even save words that you have just use one time. I mean words that are not in the dictionary thus phone could not recognize it . I'm from a country where in every province have different dialects so most of time obviously we use our own dialect. And because of that we could not possibly make use the full potential of that gesture input and t9 but now with the new 4.3 update that made possible. And thank you SONY for that!

I have my Z for 1 day (bought yesterday :D), and I have a cover too. I want to cut the silicon case but it was really hard, and it woudnt be precisily cut, so I didnt continue it.
jmg, 17 Jan 2014I am now using 4.3 version of android but im not satisfied,how can i back it again to 4.2?pls ... moreMe too, main thing is keyboard functionality, not as easy to use as before. For example, when swiping out words spelling mistakes and optional words saved a lot of time, with 4.3 you now don't get the same flexibility. It's more like a downgrade! Some people here may be hung up on speed of camera start but for me I use the phone to communicate!! And it just got more time consuming. Definately preffered previous 4.2. If any of you geekish peeps could offer a solution we plebs would be grateful ;-)
Okay so the phone is waterproof and all the spaces are filled with a waterproof cover, so if im using a cover i have to remove the cover everytime and charge it?? Its difficult man, very, im afraid constant removal of cover will affect the look of the edges of the phone:/

I found solution for every problem that I had with 4.3(battery draining fast, lags, camera app was shut, white settings theme that looked shut on my black XZ and many other problems).
Few days ago I flashed ny Xperia to the latest official 4.2 update .67. Then I rooted the phone and installed all important apps that need root access like greenery for hibernating background processes( so background processes doesn't drain the battery) and Auto Hide Soft Keys ( now I enjoy full 5 inch of the screen and when I need buttons just slide up from the bottom of the screen and they appear)....
The phone is so smooth again like before and I don't have any problem.
I'll update the phone only when 4.4 update will roll out.
I recommend to everyone who experience problems with 4.3 to downgrade to 4.2 and enjoy this amazing phone without any problem!
If you scroll down you'll find a post for how to downgrade(flash to official 4.2).
About the battery life, I'm on battery for 13h medium usage and still have 50% juice left.

Go to camera then click that yellow camera logo, you can find it at the lower left side. Then choose MANUAL then click ' SCN' . You can find there everything you're looking for. Ok if not everything then most. Hope that helps.
I was very happy with 4.3 update but after playing around for couple of weeks i am dissapointed with the camera APP.
SONY Please work on this and release a fix.
After installing 4.3, i've noticed that many of the settings/options in camera are locked compared to 4.2.2
1. we cannot change ISO settings as before.
2. Touch to focus(Macro Shot) is not available.
3. Low light images in any mode you shoot like fireworks,softskin, night scene ,party are all same , barely any difference our eye could notice.
4. Focus and HDR On/Off missing.
if someone found out the same , please advise.
Thanks in advance
How can I download my pictures and videos straight to google? I can't send any videos in my messages or to my aol email.
I bought a Sony Z in August 2013 and it's been malfunctioning. The screen locks and prevents further actions as whenever I lift it to the ear to answer a call. Also it remains locked until the caller drops the call. Sometimes you can't cut the call if the person you called does not drop his phone. I've been coping with this by either using the earphone or using the speaker. This helps unlock the creen for me to cut the call! 2 days I installed a system update and now the screen locks even when a call or SMS comes in. Even wth the earphone, I answer the call without seeing the caller. Please what should I do ?
Hi, I want to buy one of these mobiles,can u plz guide me? Xperia Z, LG optimus G, nokia lumia 925
Go for xperia Z. Aside from it is more compact and more stylish, it has allt he qualifications that you could get from a highend smartphone. No doubt about it. The negative of it could only be the battry, but i think it could be fixed by the OS update.
With note2, its a bit bigger and thicker, plus the pen is a bit annoying to re-place in the slot, (mind you,note 3's pen has an equal shape, meaning, it can be placed in the slot on whatever side of th pen, unlike the note 2 who has a specific placement. )
All in all, note 2 is not a disappointment though.
My advice>>> test the devices all by yourself, and watch videos of its performance on youtube
