After many months of deliberating with myself I finally got myself the XZ. I've been constantly on the lookout for the reviews of the big 3: S4, One, XZ.
As far as specs and performance go, I like S4 and One. Didn't go for One since 4MP is so disappointing. As for the S4 - well, looks matter to me, as well as price, the XZ has undergone some major price cuts here. So I got XZ. I was a bit hesitant of this since a lot of reviews mention how the camera isn't that good, viewing angles are bad, and battery life is low. Well, now that I own an XZ - I'll say most reviews out there are just exaggerating the bad stuff.
The camera is good and unless your a pro-photographer you can hardly tell the difference between a shot with the XZ or an S4 (you have to look really close).
As for the viewing angles, I find that most reviews simply exaggerate how bad it is. It is good enough. I admit S4 and One do have better displays but in my opinion there isn't a big difference, the XZ is still stunningly clear.
Battery life is adequate, though I haven't used it that much to be able to say how good the battery is, but so far taking a few pictures, watching a 2-hour movie and having wifi on for about 6-7 hours, the phone lasts for a day and a half, before needing to recharge.
Overall, I'm pretty satisfied with my XZ. It's a premium package with a now affordable(almost mid-range) price.

It will heat up due to the processors working hard. This will only happen when mainly playing graphic intesive games like Real Racing 3. Those extra cores will push themselves and will handle those games well.
I want to buy this phone but there is this one same question keep coming in my mind will I be able to move my games and apps to the memory card, and will it support 64GB Micro SDXC class 10 memory card?
i see many ppl write their status in facebook and it shows. from iphone, smasung, sony ect, how do they do that?
DON'T put your Xperia Z in salt water... Not even for an inch under salt water.
Xperia Z Pirate Crew, 06 Aug 2013But why Samsung S4 can move games to SD Card(except apps). Damn itwhen galaxy s4 launched it didn't allow this option (move apps to sd)
but after that a lot of people claimed because their phone has only 8.5 gb internal storage
so samsung sent update to make apps moved to sd .

That is problem in case of big apps like navigations and games like Real Racing 3... Only good things is that you may save movies or big video clips on sd or other data as removable memory..

zokinet, 06 Aug 2013Hi, You can't move apps on sd card in android versions 4.1.2 or 4.2.2, only multimedia or etc...So, what is the point of buying a SD Card?
The reason that I buy a SD Card is to move / download apps to SD Card for making the phone performance become higher.
So if it lost the main function, I think I really wasting money to buy a SD Card.
But why my friend using a S4, he can move game to SD card but he can't move apps to SD Card?

I think I'm wasting money to buy a SD Card. I have no idea about the point of SD Card, I bought it, but I can't move my apps to SD Card from Internal Storage, and also I can't directly download apps from Google Play to SD Card.
Finally I have bought my Micro SD Card today.
But I facing a BIG Problem, when I download some apps from Google Play, it's direct download to internal storage, I want it download into External Storage Micro SD Card directly, so what should I do?
Next, I'm trying to move my apps or games from Internal to External, but I didn't find any button like "Move to External Storage" or "Move to SD Card" in the Setting/Apps/"game", when I open the game in manage application, it only have "Clear Data", "Clear Cache", "Uninstall", but I didn't find any button that transfer the apps form Internal to External.
Guys, please help me, and also give me a solution that WITHOUT ROOTING, I dun want my phone get rooted.

I have the phone for 5 days and no problems at all. I'm still on 4.1.2 and waiting for my operator for update. When you hold the device in hand is little uncomfortable because of the edges. And better fill a little uncomfortable then to hold that cheap plastic galaxy s4, because when I am using a public transport everyone see in my hand because this device is looks gorgeous!!! It's up to you what you will choose :)
I want the Xperia Z instead of the iPhone 5 however apparently the Xperia Z has WiFi issues according to some users and apparently there is also a overheating solution. And some say it is hard to hold e.g uncomfortable in your hand. Is all this true, and is it a problem for you guys out there?
