AnonD-126393, 26 Mar 2013Thank you, very helpful, i think im going for xperiaZ, hope i got non defect unit.Don't forget to test the screen first. Make sure the unit doesn't have any dead-pixel. Test it using this method :
1. Dial *#*#7378423#*#*
2. Service tests
4. Tap on screen and look for any dead-pixel
5. Ask for other unit if dead-pixel is present.
Also, you might want to ask them to update the smartphone to the latest firmware which is - 10.1.A.1.434 for safety.
If you want to update your software, you have to use PC Companion, connect your xperia z to your pc or laptop, then search the update...

Hello Guys, XZ is awesome and performance is so brilliant. Today I got new updates with new updated ver. whne I connected to PC companion. Battery performance is so better after updating. Loving and enjoying with Black hot XZ..

Its not as pocket-friendly as Xperia Z which I believe is better in terms of design, build quality and performance. I like Xperia Z UI more than the Note 2. The icons look more professional and premium looking than the cartoon-ish icons on the Note 2 UI. And its water & dust resistant too! Note 2 is not that bad. Battery life is better and the most important thing is the battery is removable. I can't bring my Note 2 everywhere I go since I'm a guy because (again) its too big to fit in my pocket. No bag or purse, its girly. XD
I'm very satisfied with my Xperia Z. I bought mine at RM2199 online and I got the speaker for free. I think this year, I'm gonna spend my money on Sony. Buy Xperia Z, its very recommended.
lilyf, u must mention what is your most desired criteria upon smartphones.. Are the screen resolution ? View angles ? Weight ? Size ? Speaker ? Camera ?

AnonD-48321, 26 Mar 2013100% true .For those who talk about TFT on XZ, Dont u think that sony has world class engineers or if u may think even if sony doesn't have good engineers to work on it and who build the phone, do u guys think that they were hired just like that to give poor quality ?? Well i don't think even GSM arena Glossary says TFT is the best screen out there and especially to match it with bravia 2 engine and a quality built by Sony is unmatched, i don't care what peope who dont have knowledge just shit here about the screen but let me tell u if u are the one who asses screen then u should be an engineer somewhere..plz dont shit here about the quality product like XZ..it rules and is sittion on a throne.
Tested this phone today at a phone store.
Great sound when using headset with clear audio+ on
Average screen (TFT)
Colours are a little bit washed out, blacks are greyish, but ok for average users
Outdated chip (S4 Pro)
Not many features
Camera is average, I noticed some of the pics taken from camera were a little pixilated especially when zooming in
Bravia engine only works in photo/video gallery
Too big, well for me anyway
Hard to open the flaps
Thats my opinion about this phone so far
confused which one to buy
samsung s4 - awesome features but looks cheap quality plastic
htc - i dont know why but i dont like htc
iphone - just an over hyped phone
bb z10 - only reason its has its own network and its bb 10 os is very powerful
sony xperia z - overall a good phone
I want the Z but i can't upgrade till JUNE (UK) Im thinking if i get it in June, Will they have released there newist Flagship?
[deleted post]Buy Xperia Z man do u have any doubt about it common, you'll be buying the best phone in the world as of now which has water resistance and quad code snapdragon s4 chipset, battery stamina mode , 13 mp camera with HDR and exmor rs and clear audio and superior display with mobile bravia engine 2 and excellent built quality , solid for sure as well as a looker for everyone i can assure you its an eye turner man, dont waste time thinking just go and grab this beauty..
