advice, 18 Jul 2013if u can live with the size of the note 2,then go for it, it is better than xperia z.
the n... moreI had the note 2 and it was the best phone i ever had. I do miss the stylus, it was very useful during calls whe I had to write something down. You are right that the audio is much better on the note 2 but the screen is not better. The viewing angles maybe but the clarity and responsivnes is better on the xperia z.
I dont think that native 3G calls are a deal breaker, but its just my opinion, I never use video calls...
On the battery side you are completly right, mine lasted for 2 days on heavy use and still got 30% left.
I got stuck with the xperia z when my note 2 screen shatterd and the phone was insured but vodafone romania dont import it anymore so i got to settle with sony.
I would be hard for me to decide now on one phone, note 2 or xperia z, but i think I'll go for the note 2 just for the battery.
danu87, 18 Jul 2013hey im looking forward to buy note 2 or sony experia z, wich is better,i need straight answer ... moreXperia z v/s note 2 -> Z hav better screen (1080p vs 720p , 443 ppi vs 267 ) , better processor (New Snapdragon S4 pro vs old Cortex A9), better build quality (dragontrail glass in front & corning gorilla at back vs cheap plastic from shamesung) , better GPU (New Adreno 320 vs old mali 400) , Way better looks + u can chk d rating of both d phones) , Z is easier to handle bcoz of small size as compared to note 2 , lighter in weight also! Z hav better 3G speeds (42 mbps vs 21 mbps) ... So now upto ur choice ;-) , goodluck!
I got the phone a mounth ago and I can tell you that it is a great phone.
I had a Note 2 before this that broke and the insurance company exchange it ehit Xperia Z(vodafone romania).
I a pleased to say that the battery lasts from morning to evening with 20-30% left after moderate use on 4G and wireless all day, never turn off data connection.
The screen and overall feel of the phone is better than the Note 2, its much more faster and never laggs.
I would recomend this to other users but not to music fans...I have Beats headfones and they help but with the original headfones the sound is poor, was better on the Note 2.
Another problem I have, maybe more of an issue, is that the wireless antenna is verry weak, I only get full bars when I'm very close to the router's antenna and from 3-4 meter away it starts droping bars.
Call quality is great and cell reception is good, frustrated that I have it on 4G and it drops very often but that Vodafone's foult :)
Hope my review was helpful.
hi, gud day..
am using this fon nnn its awesome..juz wonder bout battery life, ofc it stated here bout 48h but mine barely last 24h..am using battery doctor too..what should i do? tq
NEO..., 17 Jul 2013Deos any1 from India updated version 4.2.2 in Xperia Z....pls rep ASAP.....Yes i got the OTA update & i have updated to 4.2.2
Hey. I've been using this phone for three weeks now. It's more than amazing. I was astonished to see that it does everything! I had been using nokia 5530 for 4 years before I realised I needed something normal. This phone is literally shocking when I look at 5530.
Sony really did the job.
Only "drawbacks" (they are normal these days) are the heating during intensive browsing or gaming and also battery draining. That's it.
I wouldn't recommend buying Z for those who are using 5+ year old phones, because their eyes would go "DUUUUDE"!
How can I get update #307 ?, in fact am not interested in 4.2.2 ? Is this possible ?

Night of Xperia Z, 18 Jul 2013I can tell you, not all the phone is same, if your phone has many problem, that is your unluck... moreAnd also, sorry for my impolite to samsung. Actually, my impression to samsung is good. But they have ruin it, it service center is bad, and they waste my mother and my friend money. So, I didn't like samsung anymore.

Curter, 18 Jul 2013That's quite weird... cause update servers get your home location via your IP address... no ma... moreI can tell you, not all the phone is same, if your phone has many problem, that is your unlucky. Until now, I didn't facing any problem except the turn off automatically, after it turn off automatically, I turn on back , it tell me it want to save battery so turn it off automatically, but I have turn off this setting. U think samsung is good??? NO, my friend have note 2 and my mother have S4, my friend note 2 has charging problem, and my mother have short notification tone ring problem, they both had called service center, but service center just simply give a a answer. So for me, samsung service center is the worst. If you want to promote your samsung, please dun come here to break other impression to Xperia Z. And also, please be polite. I saw your opinion too many rude words.
Main problem xperia z is no direct video call on this set but samsung s4 has video call option.... except that xperia z is better than s4.
PrasannaYogee, 18 Jul 2013If you are using English as Default language on your Xperia Z, this method could help I guess,... moreThat's quite weird... cause update servers get your home location via your IP address... no matter whatever your private IP is, it's under an IGP and that contains the HLA by which it gets the country...
