The last update is amazing, they have improve lot of things, like the death issue, louder speaker, battery life performance, etc.

Amazing deal, Insane and best smartphone.

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)
Been a solid fan of Sony's work since the PS1. But this phone has a major flaw, a huge 1080 screen and in comparison a tiny battery. I've also now seen the Z in store and cannot for the life of me see any benefit to the higher resolution
johnylim, 29 Mar 2013Rumour about Xperia codenamed Dongo if I not mistaken, Snapdragon s600 4.7" water resist.4.8 i think!! waiting for that phone \m/
By the way, check the frontpage stats again, Galaxy S4 is only 50% ahead of Z now, while Z is maintaining a solid lead on One with almost 100% more daily interest. Many are talking about S4 vs One, but Z is the one to maintain stability in top spots.

Everyone should salute to Japan technology~ Around 5 years ago alrea... moreI believe watreproof is soon to be a new standard feature for flagship phones also outside of Japan, but seems like Samsung is not able to make truly waterproof phones, i saw a test on TV and Xperia Acro S and Moto Defy held through the test but Samsungs waterproof contender had taken in water. No surprise when one looks at the build precision of Samsungs flagship, the S4 would even take in fish and possible small crocodiles if it fell in the river, theres plenty of room for them to squeeze in around the flimsy power button.
deep 1974, 29 Mar 2013Buttery smooth after updating today, good work sonyMine got a little hot while playing after the update, and i noticed Maps was using lotsa battery even if i had not opened it. It stopped though, and after a restart and many hours usage Maps has not consumed any battery at all.
Did you notice any change in speaker volume? I think the water sensor software for the loudspeaker could have a bug, maybe thats why the volume was louder suddenly. Or maybe it really got a little louder after the update.
i am now so much tempted and not able to seperate myself from this hack of the piece, its generation x item and no wonder big bang of market, lovers of gadget must taste this or you will never understand the hunger and its thirst.:)----------------sony the best among all the wellknown master pieces. i truly recommend to all smartphone lovers........
z2 , 29 Mar 2013all Sony fan did you know? iOS HTC and Samsung and other company is scare of the Xperia Z...s... moreYeah~
You are right...
Everyone should salute to Japan technology~
Around 5 years ago already have Water-proof phones...
I knew it because there's a Japanese guy in my Form.2 class using Casio brand phone~
It's UI is so nice and nothing can compare to it at that time...
Many of Sammy fans think that "Octa-core" is more important~
But how if accident happens?
The "Octa-core" will become "No-core"~
SONY Xperia Z will still remain "Quad-core" after the incident...
SONY FOR LIFE...^^Y
all Sony fan did you know? iOS HTC and Samsung and other company is scare of the Xperia Z...since the Z born they try to do anything to stop the interesting of this Sony smartphone..I love Samsung very much..but every body in the world must respect of the design and water protection..I never think the HD smartphone 441 ppi, reality display, quad core can put in the water..I want to tell you everything true.
