I also had Galaxy S2 before, and now I got Xperia Z, and it's amazing. I'm from the Philippines, where are you from? Can you give more feedbacks regarding Xperia Z? thanks... Arnel from Manila
My first week of experience from switching my Galaxy S2 with the Sony Xperia Z LTE has been quite interesting.The First thing I've noticed is that i don't really mind the LCD screen viewing angle issues compared to an AMOLED screen because the full HD screen is breath taking.The 2GB of ram is brilliant because i haven't faced any lag issues and most of the time i have an additional 0.9GB of space which is a big kudos for Sony. The camera a 13.1 mp is great but at low lighting it's Intelligent mode seems to be at fault(it improved a bit on the 4.3 jelly bean update and I'm hoping the 4.4 kitkat will make it even better).The Battery is quite good especially if you're using the Stamina mode which can last up to 2 days(if you barely use it ,it can even go to 3).The only down side i have with the Sony Xperia Z is charging, yes it's waterproof and Dustproof which means you have to open the flaps every time you want to charge it.The only option to avoid this is to add on another $30 to buy the charging dock( if you have money to spare ,it's absolutely worth the cost).Another thing you should know is that the speaker is smaller and isn't that loud compared to my Galaxy S2(that's the price you get for making it water proof) but at least Sony gives you a brilliant set of earphones with control-talk to counter that issue .
TEJA, 02 Jan 2014sorry guys we can change camera rear camera pixels. how????
xperia z, 13 Jan 2014still no 4.3 update wtf?Check again. It is upgradable to Android 4.3 and has a planned upgrade to 4.4 Kitkat. :)

Find some tutorials at XDA developers...
If you don't know how to do it, I'll post later.
[deleted post]i wonder if you really have this phone or you're just trolling. i bet you dont even own one.
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2014i also dont like white background colour. then it it s a cause of 4.3? cant i leave it and go ... moreyeah maybe,you can do it by flashing your phone.. as for me,the color of the settings is not a big deal, what's important is that 4.3 made my phone buttery smooth and very fast when browsing.and the background color of icon's drawer has improved,it doesn't look washed-out now. it felt like i have a new phone,in a good way.Overall, im happy with the update

None of the thing on earth will just break itself without touching or without a cause...
Except for rapid heating and cooling...

I've been using this phone for about 8 months now. I've gone from 4.1 to 4.2 to 4.3 and I can understand why people think the Xperia Z is a bad phone on purchase date. I have grown to love this phone and here how and why :
> Screen is brilliant. 5" full HD and excellent colour saturation.
> Sleek design. The waterproofing adds an extra layer of security to an already sturdy phone. Extremely well built.
> Good specs. Fantastic super quick processor, lots of ram. Excellent camera.
Tips for when you get your Xperia Z :
> Get your self a screen protector front and back. If you love the sleek design, you'll love it even more if you get a screen protector so you can use your phone without some silly bulky case.
> Update to 4.3 asap. Battery life isnt an issue on the Xperia Z. The device is solid, the software wasnt in previous updates. Is now.
> Get Nova Launcher from the app store. If you bought this phone, you will want to utilise the full 5" screen. Nova allows you to hide Sonys rubbish skin and replace with a fully customisable Android skin. Change font size, icon size, margins. You can even hide the notification bar and use gestures. It isnt processor intensive and looks amazing.
> Get a SanDisk Ultra memcard (max 32gb). I picked one up for £20. Worth it as the ultras have the fastest read write speed and makes the phone a full on media device.
> Be prepared to charge everyday. Most people moaning about battery life tend to forget that your carrying a HD screen packed into a slim waterproof unit. The battery isnt so good because its a small battery. You could get loads of power saving apps that switch off everything but whats the point in having a phone with these specs? Just accept you have to charge and enjoy your phone.
I have a little review about the phone..well I was using it for about 3 months.. Before I was a samsung s2,s3 user.. so I will use them for comparing
Pros- HD screen 5"
battery better then on the samsung (gps on, sync on, wifi,data) at the end of the day left me about 15%
cons- camera is awful, noisy, led is not so powerfull
can't shrink the soft keys
I would recommend that you buy some bluetooth headphones, and a charging dock cuz of the rubber seals
