DBC, 11 Aug 2013Very poor battery life, everything else is so great.What? Poor battery, this phone??? What firmware version are you on? Update it to 4.2.2, the battery is impressive.
shaf, 11 Aug 2013This is just nonsense....i use My Sony Xperia Z in the rain...washed it under the tap and even... moreI want an app to use the volume rocker to take photos underwater. My Samsung had a setting for this (but it wasnt waterproof of course..).
Whats the name of your proximity trigger app?
kjumar, 11 Aug 2013battery is very weak 2g/3g internet works only for 4 hrs continuously and that's it where as s... moreIf it doesnt work with 2G you should change your cellular network provider.
Battery is awesome with HSPA and H+ connection, one of the best, but in daytime the high brightness required will reduce battery, yes, but this happens to all phones. iPhone 5 cannot last this long on high brightness on 3G connection, not even close, my relatives using iPhone5 always turn off data and even wifi to try to stretch their tiny batteries, no need for this on Xperia Z, just keep it all ON, and keep Stamina Mode disabled, Xperia Z will get you home in the afternoon with some juice to spare.
Regarding high brightness for daytime usage, iPhone 4 was tested to last just over 4 hours at full brightness, thats with the phone idle. Now start using 3G, scroll and zoom in the browser (this makes the CPU and GPU work hard and consume lots of battery) and you cant even make it 3 hours on a tiny 3.5 inch device. I bet you, even 2h30m is gonna be hard to achieve.
Keeping zooming and scrolling to a minimum while browsing is a great way to save battery. This is why for example HTC one made it to more than 10 hours in the battery test here at gsmarena, but it cant make it to even 6 hours in more realistic tests.
hello guys, i've a question, does any one of u have problem with notification light, I mean is it working properly???
ps: no sammy nokia trollers plz
The reason why Samsung sell more is that Samsung paid many retails to promote and selling to peoples and people who promote and selling Samsung phones get also a bonus from Samsung itself.
Last time i went to the store and people who works there ask me what phone i want. The gave me three phone and all of the three are Samsungs and i ask i want a Sony made phone the said don't buy those phones those phone s are slow/bad screen and expensive.
This is the main reason why Samsung buy out retailers for this sneaky marketing, Samsung are the biggest corrupt of all companies.
plz help me I want to buy this phone but some people on flickart Wright that xperia z screen was broken in pockets by itself I read many review their few of them are complaining about screen broken by it self under pocket.
is it true plz reply.

The phone is great, the size is handy, I can text with one hand despite its size. Everything is good except the battery is easily drained. Use STAMINA mode to increase battery life. Overall, nice phone! (y)
Is it true? :) I intentionally place my XZ in a bowl of water for several minutes and i did it several times, it is really waterproof. I even wash it with flowing water when i want it cleaned removing my finger prints. Maybe you did not close the rubber flaps or you had bought a fake XZ phone :)
DBC, 11 Aug 2013Very poor battery life, everything else is so great.Yes that's correct.....
Gitty, 10 Aug 2013thank u friend ! What about music n display quality ? I think music quality is better in xperi... moreAccording to me
The display quality of Xperia z is better.......colours are more accurate
But the speaker quality of Xperia Z is not good
n8friend, 11 Aug 2013I agree with u, is never water profThere is a warranty. Why you dont use it to replace another one. Instead of complaining that this is not a waterproof.
I have an Xperia Z.This morning, I went boating, it was soaked a bit(splashed only). now moisture accumulated in the camera lens.the phone don't start. what happen to the IP57 certification!
