Initially, after the announcement from Sony Corporation for Xperia Z launch I was super excited about this phone. I was looking forward desperately to get this phone in my pocket. But had to wait for almost a month to get my hands on this monster. And finally the day arrived when I had a hands-on experience with Xperia Z.
At first glance it was the best droid phone than any other droid phones available in market. But gradually, as I started using this phone within 4-5 minutes of usage it started heating up. Then i started using the camera which Sony Corporation claims to be the best of Sony and the results were unbelievable, the quality of images which I clicked were not at all satisfactory. As whenever i tried to Zoom an image it started getting distorted.
Meanwhile, the usage time of Xperia Z in my hands was almost around 8-10 minutes. And by that time this device got so heated that for a moment I thought this monster should not get burst in my hands.
And finally, my dream to own this device shattered. And I ended up asking for the arrival of SAMSUNG GALAXY S4.
Maybe next year SONY CORPORATION will surely bring the Best of SONY in a Smartphone.

For your information, the Xperia Z uses Dragontrail glass on the front and Gorilla Glass on the rear. Dragontrail Glass is stronger than Gorilla Glass, go do your home work. Then again, as you are trolling what is the point of that, why let the facts get in the way of the truth!

Waiting for this as it supposedly fixes some issues, although mine is not suffreing from any faults but always good to get the latest update,especially as it is XZ specific from Sony.
Sony has really disappointed me with its faded colours. especially the display is very bad when dealing with black colour it loses its contrast seems like washed-out display.
And the 2nd thing it doesn't have gorrila glass which means it takes pressure on display even on a mederate touch this is crap.........
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2013Fragile? Ohh you mean s3.2 plastic layers, a screen protector and a shatter protection, sounds like a rather fragile screen if it needs that much extra protection!
(I am not a "fanboy", and I criticise any bad phone, regardless what company made it!)

What camera settings work the best in In room ceiling lighting? Pretty much have tried everything and Pictures are noisy or blurred? Why is Pic being compressed so much .. Compression is causing picture to blur (JPEG compression). Had a dissucssion with Sony and they said JB 4.2 mmight fix it . I think its just a Software/Driver issue. Is the flash under powered?
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.
AnonD-132404, 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....
