You guys are so sad! why you keep suggesting people to stay away from this handset? It's a joy yo behold. Users should give their positive and negative feedback and potential consumers should go test the handset out before buying anyway.
So far my only concerns are; microphone a bit funny - sometimes other person cant hear me unless I power off/on again. software issue for sure that needs to be addressed. And on the sony website states the build is out .434 and i am on .350 however when i try to update it says im on the newest software already.
Everything else is superb; screen is fantastic, design, feel of device, weight and size all perfect. In fact, when I go pick up my iPhone 5 again, it feels miniature and I'm not missing it at all.
iOS and android should not be compared. They are on different platforms and aimed at different consumers however it would be interesting to see how android develops as they recognise that fluidity is amongst the top of thier priority list. I have come from iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, Samsung Galaxy S3, iPhone 4S and 5. No android experience is better than this on the XZ. The S3 was a nightmare and I sold it for a 4S even though 5 was gonna come out in a months time (last August/Sept).
Alot people talk about 64gb micro SD and heating issues. For the millionth time it supports 64gb as FAT32 and limits 4GB per file and heating issues exists amongst every device, once they are pushed they will heat up.
There is 0.01% lag which swiping across panes however fluidity level is almost as good as iOS. Considering an open platform that android is, I can say I've taken a chance to give android another go from iOS and I aint missing iOS too much at the moment, If and when apple decides to make a 5" phone I may consider using iOS again but we all know that 5S this fall will be the same size with better internals so it looks like XZ is with me until Autumn 2014.
A great handset and great design. If you choose this you wont regret, if you choose HTC One or Samsung S4 you probably wouldnt regret either until you drop it water.
Enjoy this device and seriously guys that troll, stop it. Its very sad. Like, really.
UK based, running .350 build.
This phone is amazing! So solid and elegant, battery is just fantastic, watching movies on this screen is cool...

AnonD-116479, 03 Apr 2013Do you know how XZ better than. S4 in which aspects. Of course it's will only better than S4 i... moreIf you need more performance then fair enough. Just dont try to make anyone belive that Z is slow, theres plenty of performance to spare. Been through this many times before, performance is saturated for now.
Features? Yeah like we NEED deep integration of tripadvisor. OMG thats so 1ame. And these health things, do we want this bloat on our phones?
How come i never missed any of the "features" of note 2 since i got the Z? You know, those who are actual owners of S3 and Note 2 doesnt talk so much about their features, since both S-voice and SmartRotation are defective, they dont work well at all and cannnot be used for anything. Its not a feature if it does not work. Also, dont worry about multiwindow, it works only with a few apps, and you get pretty tired of it and stop using it soon enough. Maybe its good on an 8 to 10 inch screen, not on 5 inch for sure.
In a few more days the Z should be back to first place on daily interest, as of now its at 95,000 and S4 at below 107,000, and so far i havent seen anyone who say "Sony will pokkingzz diezzzz!!" because of no tripadvisor integration. And we still didnt mention the voting results, despite of both Lumia fans, HTC lovers and sammyboys trying to vote it down it keeps a very comfortable lead. And whats the score for S4s fabulous "features"? 7.4, wow... Im so impressed lol.

[deleted post]Hi Thala,
I hear you want to talk with Samsung production engineer. Today is your lucky day. This day it's my turn to be a Samsung production engineer. If you have any queries then you can post it here.
Samsung production engineer for today.
AnonD-67061, 03 Apr 2013Hai guys,I need help here,I have my SONY XPERIA Z two week,I try chrome browser to view some o... moreI think you have to use Dolphin browser to get flash support, the plugin isnt made for Chrome.
[deleted post]Wtf man, are you nuts? Xperia Z supports all those apps, and because of Snapdragon chipset it suports them better than S4 octa. Just look how many new app releases has serious bugs on Exynos devices, Tower Defense on Note 2 anyone? Took weeks before they made it work.
So you want the number of an engineer do you? Yeah sure they would listen to you, you are a serious head case.
I got the xperia z, but im facing 2 problem, 1st is that when I call anyone and put the phone to my face the screen goes off and that is normal but when I remove it the sreen wont lit on until the call is ended and that's not normal, 2nd problem when I use viber it works normal but when calling the viber buttons freezes till the call ends...Is anyone facing such issues, and how to resolve that? Thanks
