(i dont think it worths it though, some things are more important than mpxs, esp on low light conditions and convenience, besides the difference from 12 to 13 is unsignificant, but its there if you need it)
thethiny, 25 Mar 2013I have an hTC , and I believe it is the best phone company ever , and it is not an iPhone hybrid.Lol okay dude, if you like it its all cool. Regarding hybrid, i was specifically talking about the HTC One. alot of of the device design is copied from iphone 5. But, ultimately I have not come on here to disagree with anyone regarding anything.
If HTC is the perfect manufacturer for you then I can honestly say I am happy for you.
Few issues with XZ I've encountered recently. Volume too low for phone calls, loud speaker is mediocre and the heating up issues. It does get a bit too hot round the top on the rear area.
My only other major concern would be the after sales service. I've yet to encounter any problem(touch wood) and if I do, I hope it will be a goof after sales service.
Guys - this choice is yours. If you like HTC, then great. Die hard Sammy fans can stich with Samsung too. Like me, I have opted for Sony this year and lets see how our affair turns out to be.
ivy, 25 Mar 2013I always gets 3bar on wi-fi with no problem, it may depends on your service providerHe should also keep in mind that the bars are not accurate, 1 bar on one phone can be better than 2 on another one. Cellphones are consumer level devices, not professional field strength gauges.
Heating problem is there in this phone compare to other brands more than 100 degree Celsius
IS there any option to hide menu keys?
back, home , option keys?
its irritating as it shows always while playing games.
It ate min 1 inch of screen.. so xperia Z is not 5inch.. can say 4.8 or 4.9
I dissatisfy with the battery life. It is so short compare to the other phone.
Xperia Z camera specification says its having 13MP in rear but when i saw the camera setting its showing 12MP max. any one noticed this?

It seems the brand new Xperia Z is suffering from similar problems as the Xperia V, which was only released in December 2012. Is it possible then that either Sony is incapable of producing technically advanced phones that have been checked and work properly, free of bugs and battery problems? It certainly seems so.
Check out the problems with the Xperia V on the following link, particularly the 'Random freeze in Standby' issues (often referred to as 'SOD' or 'Sleep of Death'), for which there is still no solution (finally now confirmed after over a month and a long-term campaign to force SOny to reply to its customers).
If you get no joy from Sony Mobile here then try 'direct messaging' then on the Sony Mobile Facebook page for your own country, and get a refernce number and the name of the person you speak to. Keep a record of all communication with the company.
If that doesn't work and Sony will not refund your money for another sub-standard product then I suggest you send a copy of everything to various Tech and mobile phone magazines and ask themn to take up the case for you. Sony will not do this as they wish to keep problems quiet (on here) and away from the attention of the public and media, so you may have to force their hand! Try things like GSM Arena, CNet, TechCrunch, What Mobile, Mobile Gazette, Mobile Choice, and any others you can find (do a search for 'mobile phones' on Twitter for instance).
Frankly I would insist on your money back if your phone does not work without problems. The Xperia Z is after all a new phone and Sony's flagship. Good luck... I think you are going to need it!
