You have use Xperia Z right?
I want to ask you, my phone suddenlt TURN OFF AUTOMATICALLY after I charge my phone first time and 5 hour.
Do you have any solution??

the screen have better viewing angles 4 me it is a problem i work in public places and use the bus alot and the people have this phsycic issue to look at what u do so 4 me the worst angles the better
any smartphone with such horse powers will have heat issues the one with it's metal body would be the same
it all depends on what u want in ur device
the 4.7" screen are a deal breaker for some
the mmc are or the non removable battery
the glass or the metal
for me i hate the metal body it age much faster than any other material
if u are that convinced about a product then just buy it no need to ask the people to make u doupt ur decision

First of all , you said music and video are better on the Z , but these are the real winning points for the One . All the reviews I've read and the videos I watched say One has got a better screen display . And music , come on ! with Beats Audio you have the best music experience , whether you use headphone or the front stereo speakers .
I haven't heard of any heating problems with the one . I heard about it with Samsung's S4 though .
Blinkfeed is all about your opinion if you like it or not . That's why I didn't write about it , but in my opinion it's cool and I like it .
At last , I've seen sample pics of the camera and it isn't bad like you say . It may be bad only if you do a lot of cropping which isn't a big deal .

I even washed it from the coffe the other day and have a stand nxt to the bath tube to chat while i take a long time bath just make sure to close the ports proberly
u have to charge it 8 hours contiualy even if it's full
then never let the battery die in at least 2 weeks this will give u a fast increase in the battery
charge it when it hit 15%
if u dont use the 2g network then shut it off and keep the 3g on this will give u the best endurance
in the first month try to watch and play next to a charher :: i made many mistakes and let it die daily hehe but after i start to optimize it this way the battery is always more than 50% at night
just give it some times it will give u a great performance
my data plan is always on along with the whatsapp the facebook and i send countless email due to my work line
and not to foget the music
hope for u the best of luck
and oh update it the moment u have it just plug to the pc after u installed the sony pc companion and follow the steps
im getting the Z tmrw, how many hours should I charge it for the first time?! and how to optimize the battery? and darkak, do u have any water res. issues with the phone?!

I bought this phone two month ago and phone and my phone was down after very short period contact with water while washing my face (all protection lids were tihghlty closed).Now the technical service of Sony in Turkey says that they don't accept a warranty despite on its IP57 certification. What do you think if Sony is cheating the customer's? Please think about it...
I still confusing about Xperia Z's chipset. Can anyone give me answer? Is it Qualcomm Snapdragon or Qualcomm only?
ru, 03 Jul 2013how can i replace my xperia z battery?????????????You can't change the Z's battery, becoz this phone has no ANY Gap, if not the water will damage it.
Skyguy, 02 Jul 2013There are many reasons that the Z beats HTC one. I like the one too, but the z is better. If y... moreyes the bravia engine does improve the picture quality but the problem with the xperia z is that it uses outdated tft screen which is no much for the super LCD 3 of the htc one,htc one screen produces more accurate colors ,deeper blacks and great viewing angle than the xz screen.
the xperia z loud speaker performance is below average so u can't say xz is great for music.
the htc one has dual speakers with excellent audio experience.
both htc one and xperia z produce nice audio experience when using the headphones but still htc one is the winner due to higher volume levels and lesser distortion.
the still camera of the xperia z is better than htc one camera,but the video camera of htc one is better so here it is up to the user preference some people use still camera more others the video camera.
Skyguy, 02 Jul 2013There are many reasons that the Z beats HTC one. I like the one too, but the z is better. If y... moreI have to agree with you. I happen to have both and would say I like the One but love my Z! Either way, you can't really go wrong with either of these phones. I also would never want to drop my One though, and I mean accidentally!
Mr.Radioactive, 30 Jun 2013I see a lot of people saying that the Z is the best phone around . Well , I don't like Samsung... moreThere are many reasons that the Z beats HTC one. I like the one too, but the z is better. If you are looking for great music and video, definitely go for the z. Mobile Bravia Engine 2 makes the photo viewing experience priceless, and Walkman is the most perfect music player I've ever seen. Heat issues: there are issues of overheating with the one. My z has never gone over 42 degrees. And mind you, that is after 3 hours of intense gaming. Many people like the basic android layout rather than blinkfeed, but HTC did not include a function to turn that off. Pretty frustrating. 4 MP camera takes better photos than any other phones in the market when there is low light, but that is not too practical for many people. The 4 mp camera creates tons of digital noise and blurry photos when zoomed in broad daylight, which is kinda sad for a beast.
I'm confusing Xperia Z's chipset, GSMARENA and Sony say Xperia Z is Qualcomm APQ8064+MDM9215M Quad Core.
But when I check Qualcomm snapdragon official website, I go look for smartphone, the smartphone got s4 s4active htc one, AND I FIND OUT XPERIA Z IS QUALCOMM SNAPDRAGON.
So, I was confusing which chipset it is??
