I love my xperia z,saddest part is that im the unlucky person one in 100 handsets which turns out defective,ppl can laugh or joke about this but believe it i feel cheated badly...im not from a rich family and had saved every single penny for this phone!! During noon in heavy heavy heavy rains i was clicking snaps with the phone protected in capdase cover,and believe me guys after half hour my phone display was filled with water inside deep inspite flaps being closed.went Sony center they say its water resistant and not water proof and did not help at all.. My hard earned cash turned to dust. Hardily used 6months.had a friend in service center tried drying up the phone..display now still better and whatever is left of the phone selling it off now at 20% price as i know in future it may cause further issues. Phone was brilliant but only few issues like still it did not play all video out of box,some games on play store like asphalt 6 was incompatible,wifi direct option never worked and in future after a year if wished to change the battery its really tough.in my fate i fell for a beauty which deserves for those who keep changing each year. My personal Experience not every xperia z would last 3years as before that most must have exchanged their handsets.i loved my xperia z with bottom of my heart,its sad its not in my fate.had purchased thinking wont spend next 3-4 years at least.learnt my mistake never believe a water proof phone again and do not misuse even though it claims to,fell for latest krait processor,1080p screen and all which i found very little real time experience.sony why it had to be me???? - ppl can laugh at me but its my 100% true and honest opinion and the above incident actually has happened with me. If there is a way someone Could suggest me plz how to save my phone?
i have it since april, its realy an excellent smartphone and best value for money device. The only thing is the battery but i know that almost any phone with a 5" full hd screen has the same issue.

Ajay vasu, 16 Sep 2013how come a high end smartphone has feeble loudspeaker, awful battery, outdated processor in he... moreSorry for you if you don't own xz. That's why you're just mumbling. So far xz is my best smart phone I've ever used. The elegant designed, water and dust resistance, s4 pro, 441ppi, front and back glass panel, 4.2.2 firmware. Just waiting for xz1. About outdated chip??? It's not equipped with the latest Qualcomm production but it's still the top of the line s4 pro. Go look for smartphone equipped with s4 pro half the price of xz. If you think xz is not your phone, stop mumbling. I know you don't owned xz, so you don't belong here.
Yoyo, 16 Sep 2013ok great then. but why does that message comes anyway? 'this device does not support the func... moreMaybe after you've charge the phone. There is reminder your xz not h2o resistance unless you close the charging flap properly. It's only a reminder to the user.
Revolution of Z, 16 Sep 2013Oh I see. Nevermind, when Z1 released, Z won't be the top 1 maybe is no.2 but it is still my B... moreThx for u reply..But i see so many cons of Xperia Z than Xperia zl like feeble loudspeaker,poor constrat,sound of earphone problem,overheating,13mp camera no so good if vs other brand phone so make me scare buy it!! Really has that issue???I really like it design and want buy it..I dont like other phone!
i love my Xperia Z dont get all pants reviews. i think its on par with Galaxy S4. the only thing i can knock, the loudness of the speakers, very low.
beautiful design, nice shape, fits in my hand. and really fast. lets hope we get a kitkat update.
I seen on another website that the battery is removable but on her it says it isn't. Is it removable on one model and not the other? Also what is the difference between the C6602 and C6603 models of the Z?
legend comment, 16 Sep 2013hey, clam down, try go to gsmarena home page, watch the chart, CURRENT RANKINGS By rate ... moreOh I see. Nevermind, when Z1 released, Z won't be the top 1 maybe is no.2 but it is still my BEST phone ever.
legend comment, 16 Sep 2013wait a minutes,
did i mention htc one or galaxy s4 is better or something?
beside that, i j... moreYou listed up some bad specs as to show why Z should not have a good rating. Truth is that theres nothing wrong with Z, just try it and see that everything is just fine, there are many good reasons why its still on top, but if Sony fans was the only reason then its strange that Sony is not even top 5 smartphone maker, I believe both Lenovo and LG are bigger.
That means there is not enough Xperia fans to vote up a phone that much. Its just a good phone that deserves it, but i have to admit the back panels coming loose on many Xperia Z is a concern, even if it was fixed with software updates it can still happen on phones that ship with first gen Android 4.1.2 out of the box if not updated to 4.2.2 within a reasonable time (this problem need 1-2 months of fairly heavy use to arise)

YoYO, 16 Sep 2013OK SO your Z is water proof ? good . but why does that message comes anyway? i better call so... moreI also have no idea why the message said my XZ is not support water proof. Maybe XZ is water resistant and not water proof. But I tried before and it is true water resistant. :)
Anomynous, 16 Sep 2013You know Sony is a small player and does not have a fanbase. You really think we all bought Z ... morewait a minutes,
did i mention htc one or galaxy s4 is better or something?
beside that, i just want to know why it still on the top in rating? and i only said " i wonder why..." MEAN i want to know about why this still on the top in rating.
and for me, the s4 just a joke... marketing make it popular only.
legend comment, 16 Sep 2013i wonder why this phone can stay on no.1 in rating?
first its DOES NOT has the best screen,d ... moreWho told you Xperia Z is no.1??? Although it is my no.1 best smartphone, but I saw some review said it is not no.1. You didn't own Xperia Z be4??? My friend has a S4, I saw his 1 picture very blur, like been enlarged.
Ok, dun talk about other smartphone, how much ppi is your ideal best screens?? 13mp not enough?? Maybe now 13mp is a bit outdated, but on that time, I mean Xperia Z release date. 13mp is considered as good camera. You want 1000 ultra pixel as your ideal camera?
Speaker, maybe I will acknowledge about that. Chipset, u still want to argue about that?? What chipset is considered as your ideal chipset? I think Xperia Z chipset is good. Lte-a? I dun care about that. You can buy external micro sd card if you feel 16gb internal storage is not enough for you. Doesn't have best battery life?? R u kids?? High processor or good chipset will drain more battery life. Your ideal battery life is 1hour minus 1% of your ideal battery??
There was no any PERFECT things in the world. Even though all phone has their good and bad.
