what is the water proof? i put my xperia z into the water.........what happen? microphone not access while i close .....oh my god.
[deleted post]I think you can stop advertising the "good" of AMOLED already~
Even Sammy also NOT CONFIDENT for their AMOLED display...
In future Sammy gonna use back OLD TECH LCD which you Sammy fans don't like~
Gonna come out in S5 or S6 and you can say GOODBYE to AMOLED...
But then SONY coming soon with TRILUMINOS display~
You can debate after that...
Please be patient and wait for another few months~
See you after few months...=)
Unknown, 13 May 2013I admire everything in xz, actually I know when it comes to camera and sounds its perfect, but... morethe battery life is really good and with following the suitable method to optimize it u will have a 24 hours of heavy usage with no problems -this is one of the benefits of the non user removable battery- the more u care the more it will care ;)
advice, 14 May 2013u don't have to say sorry to me ,it is your personal choice. if u really own the s4 use the... moremr advice this is not true at all yesterday at carefour i let the poor guy who is working in the mobile section to try every thing and yea there is moods but a slight difference appear to the naked eye no matter the mood the colors still almost the same so no ur case is totally false and ur defense is rejected the amoled even in the s4 is far from perfection or even 3 years away from make it able to produce any real color

Fahad, 14 May 2013Sorry to say no to you bro. Even though my s4 color seems to pop out from the screen I do not ... moreu don't have to say sorry to me ,it is your personal choice.
if u really own the s4 use the movie mode if u want the iphone 5 screen colors.
[deleted post]Sorry to say no to you bro. Even though my s4 color seems to pop out from the screen I do not like this fake color. Maybe some people do. But I do not. I always prefer natural color. No matter which display mood you Set s4 does not even close to real color like z, along with iPhone 5. To me, iPhone 5 displat shows closest to real color then others
I bought this beauty home on 6th of april around 10 pm, why do i remember the date cause Xperia Z is my first high-end smartphone and I can say that im a proud owner of Z. Im not a gadget expert but one can only prove capability of a phone by actually own it,hands on it experience and im not talking about just a few minutes hand on it and to summarize the phone after that.
What more to say to those who judge by its spec on paper rather than living with it.
I see people complaining about the wifi drops and its bad connectivity but for me , my wifi on Z is WORKING well all the time even only on one bar in its signal.
Viewing angle,lets just say im one of many Z lovers who claimed viewing angle isn't important and for more privacy purpose,well yeah,its not an excuse cause its not essential at all.
To be honest,i dont even know viewing angle can be a big issue until people started posting about it.
Maybe for those people who normally dont care about viewing agle,now you make a fuss of it now cause people would point it out if you have this phone, you just want to look good and a perfectionist.
You buy this phone cause you love it, and its for your own personal use so dont be turned off by what other ppl have to say about it.Self-experience is what matter most.
Xperia Z is better looking when its display is off?Bullshit. i Love looking at my Z with its on and off and i mean LOOKING RIGHT INTO HER EYES.If thats how you stare at your wife from side angles all the time instead of facing her,god knows what she would do to you lol.
I can say that so far its good for me,battery performance can be improved the longer time you use it with more charging cycles.Note that mostly it would drop a lil faster from 99% to 90% on normal use but after that it would maintain a slower drop rate of percentage but thats just from my Z.Not sure on others.
For those who concern of wearing off the flaps, just get a bluetooth headset and the dk26 charging dock. I have both now and i can kiss those flaps goodbye :P
On Stamina Mode performance,i finally understand how it works. At first it will show you a big difference of usage when you flip it on after that it will drop and the times when it will show no difference at all with the mode on or off, please dont worry about this.
It is definitely not broken,it just learn from your actual usage and slowly estimate and much more accurate time usage left after that. So it all depends on your real time usage with the phone and it learns from that.
My only minor complaint about this phone is, the speaker.Its not loud enough but listening in earphone made it up for it with so much clarity and bass quality audio :)
Im loving my XZ and yes its not perfect , its almost perfect. And hey, perfect is boring right? ;)
Recently bought one. Excellent phone. The best I have ever used. We are three friends who chose htc one, lumia 920 and me with xperia z. Battery life ia quite normal. For me lasts two days in normal usage. 2-3 hours of talking, almost all day chatting in viber amd sometimes surfing. Everything works perfect. I think I will be with Z for the next 2-3 years.
I admire everything in xz, actually I know when it comes to camera and sounds its perfect, but just I feel depress when I saw that the battery is notremovable, bec.I have or let's say "we have" experience from mini experia,me and my friends (5persons) bought it together but all of us experience a short battery life,that's why I promised myself that I will never buy phone that the battery is not removable.
I just want to ask for those who own this phone xz, how is the battery life?
Xperia ZL has "White Balance" feature but why Xperia Z doesn't have this? Maybe this is the reason why Xperia ZL has clearer/better screen than Xperia Z like GSMARENA's review that Xperia ZL has better screen than Xperia Z. Hopefully 4.2 Jelly Bean will make Xperia Z screen better as well as volume loudness.
I have always a fan of Motorola and currently own the Razr Maxx for superb battery life. Compare to Sony & Samsung, no doubt, Sony is way way better.
This phone is an amazing phone. But, wait for the Motorola's next big one.
JingXiang Lim, 13 May 2013You love to read reviews right? Please read the link below~ Argue with that article...PERIOD... moreThanks man! The article confirms my experience of trying to use the S4 outdoors in bright sunshine. There really is nothing to debate. Excellent, now I just wish all these trolls will go away. I like most top end phones but hate people bashing other products simply because of their closed and ignorant minds!! Keep trolling the trolls.
advice, 13 May 2013i really don't care about your choices,and i am not trying to make u change your mind,i am jus... moreNor do I care about yours as you do not have anything constructive to say! I do object to an ignoramus suggesting, however, that I cannot have both the S4 and Xperia Z, especially when I do!!
4.1.2 jelly bean makes its wow and upgrated upto 4.2 simply show that iam the best of sony in smart phones.latest anroid os compares with samsung note 2 better than in all features.so buy sony now.
advice, 13 May 2013i really don't care about your choices,and i am not trying to make u change your mind,i am jus... moreCome on~
Don't make yourself like a Saint...
You are the one giving FALSE information~
Such as AMOLED has natural colors and better under sunlight...
You are the Sammy promoter here~
And we are correcting you...==
ajaysinh solanki, 13 May 2013is dis non water damazable ?????
