Thank goodness someone speaking some truth for a change..You have GHZ's of power with NO fan to cool it and people expect nothing to happen.Streaming video/tv over 3g and playing games hammer the battery and CPU/GPU expect heat.
anjain, 04 Apr 2013the phone is getting heat u from upper side... if somebody knows how to resolve this plss help... moreHeating is normal and does not cause any problems. If it aint broken dont fix it. If you want to fix it still then go and get another phone and then sell that one also when it heats up, and again and again.
Even old single core heats up, my bros Galaxy S got so hot that it smelled burned plastic coz he watch online movie while charging. The phone got a bit weird after, but after a factory reset it was back to normal. Did you have problem like that one Xperia Z? No? Then dont complain, nothing wrong with it.
And finally, DONT apply human limits to electronics, a CPU can easily operate at more than 100 celsius, SAFELY, while a human finger will get burned at 60 celsius. Electronics are not made of human flesh and skin, its silicone. Same material as used in power transistors in amps and so on, when they heat up so you can fry an egg on them thats when they perform the best, like those Elektrokompaniet monoblock audiophile amps, you are not supposed to play music before they are properly hot, as that will ruin the sound clarity.
The XZ is finally in South Africa and available for pre-order from Vodacom and the 1st 250 customers will receive a free Xperia NFC speaker, all this for R429 a month on a 24 month contract = $47 per month....

PrasannaYogee, 04 Apr 2013the one with the SONY logo, is not a Protective Screen. it's the anti-Shatter Screen. And th... more2 layers of plastic, screen protector and anti shatter protector, on top of that fragile glass screen will do miracles for the viewing angles...?
PrasannaYogee, 04 Apr 2013Gsmarena changed their Spec sheet of Xperia Z, earlier upto 32GB card support & now upto... moreIt has supported 64GB all along, just that you need to format the card in the phone first. Its old news but i guess the staff here didnt wanna add it in the specs before they had confirmed it on their own devices.
Gsmarena changed their Spec sheet of Xperia Z,
earlier upto 32GB card support & now upto 64GB,
How come now Xperia Z supports 64GB microSD card?
Is it true?
faraaz, 04 Apr 2013thanks, but one issue SONY logo is printed on screen protector, after some time if i change th... morethe one with the SONY logo, is not a Protective Screen.
it's the anti-Shatter Screen.
And there will be 2 screen protectors on the Xperia Z box,
we have to add the Screen Protector on top of the Anti-Shatter Screen.
there won't any issues with the touch, you won't feel that there are 2 screens as well
Did some gaming just now, with the charger plugged in, to see if there was any way to make the battery go down while plugged in.
In most games the battery went 2% up in short time. And no excess heat, warm but not hot, felt quite nice when i put the warmest part of the back to my face.
Then i stepped it up a few notches, with Temple Run 2. This game run amazingly beautiful and smooth on Z, very nice framerate, the depth and detail is many notches above what Note 2 could do. This detailed 3D games in FULL HD requires some serious GPU power. This time i played much longer before checking, and the batery didnt go up, but not down also. Played more and was careful to not take long breaks between runs, hitting the Skip and Run Again buttons as fast as possible. It Still stayed at the same, and in the end the battery went one percent..... up. Heat was now a little more but still comfortable when pressed the back to the face.
I am sure the NOte 2 got hotter when gaming while charging, partylu due to its more powerful 2 amp charger, but the big difference here is that Note 2 would get very hot while playing Hill Climb Racing, and that game doesnt affect the Z much at all. If you have a note 2 or S3 you can enable Power Saving from the quick toggles and try to play H.C.R. and see how stuttering it will be, Exynos chips need to crank up their power to play this game while Snapdragon S4 plays it easily, as it should, considered its a simple 2D game.
Anyway, that guy who had his battery draining must have used a non original charger, or even just a PC USB connection, the charger of Z is very powerful compared to that. Myth busted, both for the overheating and the battery draining.
[deleted post]"AND WHY SHOULD IT !!!"
+1, why. That guy better buy the Caterpillar phone, unfortunately for him he will still manage to break that one as well.
