Bought xperia z c6603 2 months ago. The first hassel was MCafe virus locked me when I charged sim. That got fixed after much research and ringing up mcafe sydney. Than battery got really low and could not charge for 3 days until finally I wiped everything and restarted. Sony PC software could not synchronise well with XP and tablet XP despite updated software. Then USB charge electrode strip broke off-very easy to break as external USB connection difficult and have to try several times before fitting. Now I am waiting for docking charge as USB charge is useless now. Otherwise, its good phone with lots of features including battery life of at least 24 hours with heavy use.
Samsung fans, and by the way, I don't hate Samsung but would just like these fanboys to keep it real instead of buying into the hype! Click on this link and keep an open mind.
Best phone to date, it's hard to fault it, friend has galaxy s3 which seems slow in comparison. Great interface. Waterproof is a nice feature especially at the beach! You can wash sand off. Gets very hot when charging.
Night of Xperia Z, 25 Jul 2013Ya. I know it. It is Google Edition, but I dun like it, its 3 Key(Homescreen, Back, and Task... moreOh no, I don't want Google Edition 4.3 of a Sony. I want Sony's design flare with space and text.

Belal 94, 25 Jul 2013..... galaxy s4 over xperia z ..... Better display better and smoother software stronger ... moreJust one thing I would take issue with, having used both, S4 is laggy which the Z was not certainly before 4.2.2! Sony's UI is very light touch and close to stock android but the lagginess of the S4 is down to too much bloatware and features which I never use and had to turn off. Even Angry Birds lags on it! I speak from a point of view of someone who has owned both albeit not always at the same time!
appujithinyousef, 25 Jul 2013is, xperia z is a good phone??? It is a good smartphone! As many others like Samsung S4 or HTC One I guess.
I don't really care of which phone has better benchmarks or more useless features... as long as i have a large and nice screen (and I believe it is since at least last 4.1 upgrade and now 4.2), no hiccup at usage, good enough camera (i use a real camera when I know I will want to take nice photos).
And it is waterproof. Not that I bought it because of this, but it's still very useful and I feel not scared to use my phone when it rains or when I have dirty hands...
Only thing I may say annoying is the relative heat during longer usage of camera or games.
Overall, I'm very happy with this phone (I also got a lucky discount ;)). I'm not jealous of those newer, more modern, more powerful, with more gadgets... Not planning to change unless there's really a revolution in technology. But we all know technology changes fast...
Jeanandroidfan, 25 Jul 2013what late?!! it was fast,faster than htc and others, and the update is very goodI'm not saying it's bad but everyone agrees it's laggy in scrolling, web gallery.... Are they fixing it? And 4.3 extra time again
devrafaelnadal777, 25 Jul 2013Oh really find it hard to believe...4.2.2 took so extra long... Even they released a buggy 4.2... morewhat late?!! it was fast,faster than htc and others, and the update is very good
DJ-John, 25 Jul 2013xperia z too get official 4.3 update soonOh really find it hard to believe...4.2.2 took so extra long... Even they released a buggy 4.2.2! Now 4.3????? Please send link to support the news
Belal 94, 25 Jul 2013..... galaxy s4 over xperia z ..... Better display better and smoother software stronger ... moreMr: Belal 94 I am totally agreed with you. You explain 100 $ my personal views. Thanks
my friends wr telling me that xperia Z is getting very much heat while browsing or talking. plz guide me, i am going to buy my 1st smart phone
DJ-John, 25 Jul 2013xperia z too get official 4.3 update soonYa. I know it.
It is Google Edition, but I dun like it, its 3 Key(Homescreen, Back, and Task) will change. 4.1 / 4.2 3 Key is more better than Google Edition 4.3, it too ugly.
i have been with my Xperia z for 1 month and the battery gets better, during its first 2 weeks the battery life is a bit disappointing but after it has optimized its battery usage it went up very well, Sony has the best features, such as clear camera, HD screen and its user friendly features. the design is very classy. I will definitely stick with Sony Smart Phones!
Laxman kumar, 24 Jul 2013Sir,
This is exactly what I wanted. Its best battery review on any website.
It would be ge... moreFirst of all, is your battery review. Sorry I can't find any battery review for you, because majority review is water test. But if your device battery is drain faster, u may open Stamina Mode, it won't disable your wifi working. Second you can download Battery Doctor in Google Play. It is an app to maintain your battery health, open it when charging, switch off your charger when Battery Doctor tell you the FULL Charging is over.
Second is 3G&4G, I didn't use 3G&4G before to browsing internet, I use my own Home Wifi, although my Xperia Z is C6003(LTE), but I didn't use 4G.
Third, I'm sorry I didn't use Location Service before, but I think it is good.
Lastly, video resolution is as good as S4 and HTC One, if you still think it is not good, you can open Bravia Engine 2. BE2 is use to see picture in Album and watch movie in Movies.
Hope this help.
