Ok guys,i have owned the Xperia Z for around 1 month now - don't listen to what everyone tells you about the xperia Z, i have spent 3 weeks before i bought it rading every review i can get my hands on and was deciding between the Xperia Z, Note 2, S4. but for some reason i went for the Xpeiria Z.
Heating: not as much as people braged about it, it's a quad core CPU so any new quad phone will over heat! but to sum it short it does not over heat like people said it just warms to the acceptable level depending what the user is doing for example: 3 mins call does not compare to a 30 minutes call! 15 mins gaming is certainly not like 1 hour gaming!
Performance: excellent performance i have not had the device give a single hickup, works like a charm.
Display: the resolution and clarity is awesome! if you are gonna brag about viewing screen from a certain side angle come on! who wants anyone to look into his phone's screen!?
Data performance on 3G: just Excellent, i have a free rate plan so i can only say i have used it to the most and i can certainly browse, download, stream just about anything at very high speeds.
Battery: now the battery aswell is not as bad as people say, "if" i have stamina mode on the phone can last about 24-28 hours at most with high usage (stamina mode: disconnects all data connectivity when screen switches off then reconnects and gets you everything when screen is back on) - the only downside here in my opinion is that the battery is internal and not exchangeable unless sent to supplier.
Camera: about the best photos or videos i have ever seen - specialy at night - pics at night are so clear that you think your eyes are not seeing right.
now the last thing which i think is what can annoy anyone is that sony locked the internal storage meaning you cannot transfer your games/data/applications...etc. to SD card, you can only transfer photos and videos. UNLESS you unlock/root your device then you can do that but currently if you do that you will lose the DRM keys and Bravia Engine2 which what gives the clarity and beauty of video/photo playback/ mp3 ID tagging.
i for myself can live with what i mentioned above, it depends on what you need most and whether you are able to cope with it or not.
Guys, I've tried this phone, so far so good, performance is awesome with 2GB ram, theres several issue that we know before is led notification is not working well, only light when charging, hopes someday sony dev will release update to solve and fix this problem.
whatever the comments and opinions..
the is awesum at itz peakzz !! wat said guys ?

AnonD-121813, 06 May 2013I'm feeling cheated by Sony to some extent. yesterday my friend was trying to send files from ... moreWi-Fi Direct files transferring currently only available in samsung smartphones. On other smartphones Wi-Fi Direct mode is used to send (to play on) multi media files to DLNA supported devices by direct connection without a wireless router or access point.
Please any one tell me how to transfer a video file (.MPG) from pc to Xperia Z
and is Adobe Flash Player competable in Xperia Z?

My post confirmed the specs and features, most of which I have turned off as they are of no use to me, I own both phones but doubt that you do! For my personal tastes, it boild down to the build quality as I said most ordinary people cannot notice the spec difference in real time use. You will notice the build quality, however. My personal choice and conclusion is that whilst I like the S4, I love the XZ! Take it or leave it but I do not care for your opinion which is quite clearly biased and uninformed and based on other's views. I own both handsets and that is my judgement after using both of them! Get over it.

For all the people who are about to buy a new flagship - stay away from xperia Z. It's full of issues. Overheating, poor battery life, the crappiest 1080p screen I've seen, poor loudspeaker quality, last-years hardware.. just to name a few. It's ALREADY outdated.
Htc one is lightyears ahed of this, even the galaxy s4 is better than this.. Grab one of those or wait for the upcoming new sony flagships. Just for the heads up. Cheers.
