The Sony Xperia Z claims to be water proof and dust resistant. Thats not my experience! I was in a rain storm with the phone in my pocket and it has aparently got water in it. I have had a Blackberry prior to this phone and not an issue with mouisture. Even dropped it in the sink one day, dried it out and it worked fine. I have had this phone for 2 months and paid a lot for it and now its completely stuffed. Telstra wont even send it away as the indicator says it was wet at the charge point. Took it to the Phone Doctors (great guys cant recommend them enough) and they confirmed that the motherboard and screen were gone and did not believe it was moisture related. Telstra wouldn't send it away as Sony would just reject it because of the moisture indicator. Not happy Jan....

Sushil, 22 Jul 2013Hi Guys, I dont have a Xperia Z But i want share an experiance had today (07/22/2013), I ha... moreWhen I saw your this opinion, I feel lucky and appreciate because my Xperia Z didn't have any issues until now. I wish my handset will not happen any problem forever ever.
I dont have a Xperia Z But i want share an experiance had today (07/22/2013), I have Xperia Neo V which I bought last year, which had a lot of issues since when i bought, not sure if i was unlucky to get the faulty handset. Today i got a reply from Service Center that it is having a Hardware/may be motherboard problem which will require 80% of the Phone cost which was about 14000, so I sold it today for 4000 Rs. which was baught for 17500 last year march.
When i went to repair my Neo V, I found 3-4 people waiting at the Sory Service Center to get theier replacement of Xperia Z, which they got it in front of me, which was fine, but again 2 people came in to get thier replacement for the Xperia Z which seems weired to me, so i asked one of the guy what happened to his handset, he replied "he had to get the Xperia Z replaced twice since last 2 months".further he said "the Xperia Z heat up even when its charging, and a lot when he uses wifi or 2G-3G." It was ok for him that he got it replaced, but what is the use of buying faulty phone?
I had a very good experiance of Sony Phones, till i used the Android Phone(Xperia).
I would prefer to buy a Samsung now.
In general, Somy Xperia z is very nice phone, screen, camira, viedio and the batary life. my comment concern on when some one try to call me from another country the respnse of my phone the mobile you have called may be closed. some applicaations like WhatsApp is not working (is it depond on the country).finally ican't upgrade it to 4.2.2 untill now
I own the Xperia miro.sony are good phone but for me their MP3 sound are rubbish.galaxy young are better even more cheap.
For those Xperia Z user,
Do you have ever try to put your Xperia Z in a bowl of water when your Z is hot, let it cooldown~~~~??

advice, 21 Jul 2013you are all over here dont you have a vocation? You always crush people's personal views think... moreI have no idea why you dun have a Xperia Z but you keep saying its bad here. All phone have its own bad and good. If you have problem you can post it and we can help you, but you are not, you keep insulting Xperia Z. I dun have crush any personal view, I'm just giving them my opinion about Xperia Z/ZL/ZR which is better only.
