I love how Sony made this wonderful device watefrproof and dust resistant. Having no money, i'll wait patiently next year 'til the price drops significantly. Thanks Sony.
It is really an awesome phone, better then any other phones available in the market.

Anonymous, 19 Mar 2013All smartphones with qualcomm chipsets heats up while playing games, and all smartphones have ... moreHow come SG Note 2 doesnt then? Even the crappy iPhone doesnt heat up while gaming.....and by the way not all Xperia are Quad my friend.....
I used Arc S Xperia S and now im using Z.
All of them heat up even while playin any simple game such as Angry Birds or any Mobage Game....
The Sony PSP - PSV doesnt even get effected while playing.
I like Android and I do respect all the effort Sony is doing, but to tell you the truth....they have to fix this issue cause its getting annoying now.
Its kinda scarry to hold a phone near your head with such a temprature.
If any company doesnt find that a problem, then they are lazy and not doing thier job right.
I wonder why some people keep bashing about Xperia Z cpu and viewing angle, although the fact in real life using they hard to notice the performance different, and only weird people look his phone display at weird angle too, funny.
Haters can not find what XZ lacks , it make them say irrational reason to make a funny jokes.
Viewing angle, OctaCore, syuuuppper amoled, waterproof useless... blablabla....

Battery last about 14 hours, with 2.5 hours of screen time (reading books, browsing and stuff). with Stamina mode on, you'll get about 24 hours with that kind of usage. if you don't interact with it, i'll probably give you 3-4 days, cuz as far as i noticed, there is no battery drain in standby ( about 3-4 hours after charging battery is still at 100%). So I call I ll the people that slating the battery a bullshit
"We ran our traditional loudspeaker test on the Sony Xperia Z, and the results were awful. Scoring a Below Average result even with xLOUD turned on, the Xperia Z is a definite disappointment in terms of speakerphone loudness."
What phone is that you cannot even hear it ringing....!!
slim, 19 Mar 2013Pls Xperia Z users, how is d sound quality on d XZ? Both d speaker and d ear piece? Also with ... moreIMO after a 2 weeks of handling this phone. speaker is not very loud, but the quality of sound is head and shoulder above anything else, headsets are another universe. Speaker will sound muted when you dip it into the water, and then will be crisp clear after a 30 minutes( dry out). i m not very fond of listening thru my speakers, only headset, but if enjoy listening music thru speakers, then sorry XperiaZ is not for you. but if you're a quality listener with nice headphones, then it's yours to grab
i love this phone bt im a little disappointed when i read that its battery is not removable. if its really not removable, like in tablets, then we cant easily replace it in case its battery life expired. Does anyone knows how much will it cost us to have it replace?
please tell me about its voice quality. I am using Sony Xperia S & its voice volume is very low during call, can't hear other person if there is come background noise. Can anybody tell me about Sony Z? Is it same or better?
can anyone let me know whether the led indicator blinks when their is a miss call or massage...thanks
very bad camera when we are doing zoom the camera is very bad and when we playing games the phone is getting heat..................
Direct display compares between SG SII, SG SIII and XZ shows me that XZ display is well above the Samsung displays. Dark zones (same video and photo material compared) a without detail on Samsung for darker zones of material, I would say "real black" in the bad sense of the phrase ...
Even the colors are not more intense, Samsung shows it just something darker and without detail (that especially come into play with photos taken on the snow, so when more white colour is involved). In particular there are problems with the blue colour (acts as a uniformly coated with a brush!?), in my humble conclusion.
Samsung SIV is just Pen Tile matrix with higher resolution (same technology, just played with another variation of the same matrix), so it is much harder to see the difference in the edges of the letters for example, but it still exists and the colors are still unnatural .
It is true that only when showing desktop, Samsung has a more intense colors, because the Bravia" engine is turned off (less battery consumption is reason for that, I suppose).
In the end, the question is whether You like more decorated and dark images (Samsung Galaxy) or do you want on your screen to see the real picture from real life (Xperia Z)!?
I always like to deal with the real world, whatever it was ...
