I just aold my xperia z and bought iphone 5
What a delight to get rid of that useless peice of screen with its bad battery bad camera and heat ..really guys dont buy it .sony tricked us and they have only good marketing team and they fooled us...
Iphone 5 is a killer phone
emez, 18 Jun 2013it is a shame that sony buy Ericsson company, about 2year's now sony never announce walkman ph... morehonami is a walkman+cybershot fone... so the future looks bright now 9th july.. we may see honami along with togria
The problem of terrible battery life and very low speaker volume makes the Xperia Z unsuitable for me.
Non removable battery and fragile glass casing which is a major finger print magnet is also a worry.
Also the screen cannot be replaced…only buy a new phone…a terrible and rip off design by Sony.
The S4 has a better camera, better battery life and great speaker volume.
The S4 is currently the undisputed winner of Smart phones by phone reviewers, so I will be buying the S4.
Sony xperia Z is waterproof...does that mean you can take a picture under water?
I only recently bought a new Sony Xperia Z (about 2 months back). My phone suffered a cracked screen few days ago without even a fall. It happened wen i was out with my friends. we were using the GPS to navigate and while i tried to move along the map, I noticed a crack at the top next to the ear piece /.. And after a while there were 2 more cracks formed. The crack is present on the inside layer ,the LCD screen. There is not a scratch on the outside protective screen of the phone. Currently, the touch works only on some parts of the phone. I have no idea how it has cracked since the phone never FELL down! and I even use a case to protect the phone ...!! I have always owned sony products. Before this i used a sony xperia x8 and this phone has worked flawlessly for more that 2 years. I was so disappointed to see that my SXZ crack like this.. without any reason.
I went to an authorized service center in Chennai to claim warranty and they refused to believe me. They say it has broken due to a fall. I cant believe they simply dismissed my claim without even a thorough examination of the phone. They are only ready to replace the phone for more than 50 % of its current market value.
If you closely look at the phone it is obvious the crack is not due to a fall. Had it been a fall there would have been at least a scratch on the outside ... If you run your fingers over the top screen its all smooth no crack .
I have come across many posts by other people on some forums where they mentioned the exact same problem. I am sure this is a manufacturing defect that my phone had.
it is not waterproof it is water resistance!!! please know that before using it
very happy with the phone especially after the update.
however the camera is disappointing .. especially when taking pictures in clubs etc it is too dark and more often than not the eyes have a glare in it ... please help ?????????

AnonD-152935, 16 Jun 2013yeah,very much of excitement...battery last for ALLMOST a day,its screen is NOT scratch resist... morethe screen IS scratch resistant. they for some reason glued a factory installed screen protecter to make it shatterproof if you take that off it will peal away the sony logo but the screen IS scratch resistant and more responsive to touch and doesnt attract fingerprints so much..
