was great for two weeks but now 'broken' and on way back to Sony. Vibration stuck on 24/7 ...horrible noise and battery drain. web search shows many others with same problem and is a design fault with no fix. No information on the fault from Sony .....disappointing

I can... moreIt can last two days with wifi or cellular internet constantly connected, the problem of Z is the screen on time is not so high, around 6 hours of screen time with webbrowsing, a couple hours more with video (important: use 3rd party video player).
Its well worth the upgrade from ZR, Z has superior display and 3 times more available internal storage and much slimmer. Frontcam isnt great on Z either but in daylight it takes pretty good photos and videos, 10x better than ZR which is more like a $10 chinaphone.
On a side note, i think many ZR owners regret they didnt get the Z instead in the first place, and i expected that, i have frequently warned against ZR and tried to make people realize that its actually the Xperia V2 and the battery is the only meaningful upgrade over Xperia V.
got the 4.3 last week...with new interface, the performances running very smooth & the screen now look more vibrant.

After reading alot of reviews between xperia z and Galaxy s4.i purchased xperia z 1 week ago.And believe me guys all the bad reviews about xperia z must be written by anti-sony guys. This phone rocks

I want the old one back. The Wifi connection improved after I updated it to 4.3 and I don't have that restarting issue of lucky me!! Try to ' repair' the software via SUS. It might fix your problem.
Hi guys. I am planning to buy this phone and sell my ZR. Is the battery really that bad? I can use my ZR from 7am to 11pm in a single charge with continous wifi.
For what is that small button on the bottom of the phone...is that a hard reset button?
i want to buy a phone from sony but i am confuse between xperia z and ion lte .which one will be good
I don't really like the colour of the settings they chose, they should have atleast given us a choice, I hope they fixed the wifi signal problem and the restarting problem, or else this update would be completely pointless.
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2014It's perfect phone.Only the display is not proper.Colours look faded.colour saturation is bad ... moreUpdate it to 4.3. The update improves the phone. It doesn't look washed out just like before the update.
Protect your phone and its content if in case your phone has been stolen. Activate 'my Xperia'. Settings-security - my Xperia and turn it ON. It could help you and save you from stress and heartbreak for losing as precious as this phone.

But here in my country their custome... moreIf your phone got damaged because of mishandling expect that Sony will make you pay for their service. Physical damage, misuse, mishandling and the likes will void the warranty. We all know that. So stop blaming sony for your carelessness. It's our responsiblility to take care of our phone.
