i bought this phone last week, and have been using it until now.
it made me shocked when i hands on it because the phone is really big (for me, my little hand, and its my opinion).
but this phone feels really great, especially the 1080p screen, many people said that the viewing angle is poor, but for me it just good since i don't like other people know what i'm doing or what i typed in my phone.
and the stamina mode is really good, its help the battery life.
also another thing i like from this phone that it has a unibody(not removable battery) because you don't need to wipe off the water left on the phone after you submerged it into the water, unlike the Xperia V that has a removable back, so you need to wipe the water inside the back cover after you submerged it.
but the unibody itself have a main problem that after you submerged the Xperia Z into the water, the speaker will be sounds very low for 30min-1hour because the water stuck inside the speaker and you cannot wipe it, unlike the Xperia V that has a removable back so you can wipe the water that stuck inside the speaker.
and my other disappointment is on the camera, launching the camera sometimes took time, and so many noise in low light condition.
overall, i'm in love with this phone, but too bad and i'm so sad that i'm going to sell it next week because for me this phone is too big for me and my little hand, and because i love the water resistant feature, so i think that i will stick with my Xperia V for a bit until Sony announced their other new phone that also water resistant and hopefully its not this big.

Awesome update by sony, no more lag, smoothie, so cool my xz after updating
great phone just need a better software
sony please update it to 4.2.2 and fix all the software bugs
The last update is amazing, they have improve lot of things, like the death issue, louder speaker, battery life performance, etc.
The Xperia Z price is dropped to 530 E and still decreasing...
Amazing deal, Insane and best smartphone.
Sonyfanboy, 29 Mar 2013Been a solid fan of Sony's work since the PS1. But this phone has a major flaw, a huge 1080 sc... moreWhen Xperia V was announced I was excited to buy it, but got disappointed to hear it's battery's POOR performance, and again when the Z was released, I wondered why Sony did not put at least a 3000mah battery, I believe during TECHNICAL DISCUSSIONS, they must have REALIZED how much POWER required to KEEP this beast alive. Instead they encourage users to keep the phone off to extend the battery life up to 4x with the Stamina Mode. What a SERIOUS FLAW and SONY just disregarded it since 2012.
Super Super Super!!! This Phone rocks.. What an camera so many options to play with the camera.. being one of the best smartphone.. it still fits n my hand ( mean the 5 inch display )..totally worth :)
Battery good after update, speaker output improves, smoother ui, great update i must say, sony u rock
samsung even with your 1024 cores you can't beat sony, all what you can do with technology is on paper only, your styles are so boring, real innovation and freedom is Sony, by the way in real perfromance xperia z is as smooth and even more than any smartphone thanks to sony's ui and hard work
Sony :Make.belive ( sony is the only company btw offering everything devs need like unlocking bl with an official easy way which is far less dangerous and so on)
