Just got the Xperia Z yesterday, and I have gotta say, the sound quality is incredible(headphones), really clear and full, it has not been covered much on gsm arena. Unfortunately I cant say the same for loudspeaker, not that alot of people expect great quality from loudspeaker. Also when the loudspeaker gets wet, it pretty much stops working for about an hour.

phonelover, 05 Mar 2013Tested using Samsung note2 n Sony xperia Z both open same app continues on pps to test the bat... moreThat's a pretty good result considering how good the Note II's battery life is. Thanks. At least someone is doing some battery tests on this device...
AnonD-101525, 05 Mar 2013Yes.you got my point...I want to say that please first make huge batteries then make huge spec... moreUhmm another interesting fact that motorola razr and note 2 uses amoled and it is more efficient than lcd screen. As for me if it can survive up to hrs of my usage thats ok with me data on and playing modern war and sometimes tethering. As I always bring my trustee external battery. If they can optimized it by software it is better bot juat put bigger batteries and eating like hell right it must be balanced;
AnonD-116479, 05 Mar 2013Yes, that's true. But we have to change according to the changing technology otherwise we have... moreYes.you got my point...I want to say that please first make huge batteries then make huge specs like 1080p display.With small battery all these good properties are worhless.I appriciate Note 2 & Motorola Razr for wounderful batteries.
Tested using Samsung note2 n Sony xperia Z both open same app continues on pps to test the battery Sony stop at 6HR and 2 min n Samsung stop at 6HR 55min factory reset only install pps
Got my Z today. Pre-Ordered from clove in the UK. I got the C6603 White. It's freakin awesome! It's pretty much everything you've read about. I also got free a wireless speaker with my pre-order which connects via bluetooth or nfc. Sounds very nice. I recommend anyone who's on the fence about this phone... you wont be disappointed.
LOL - the international version uses the washed out TFT screen, while the Japanese version uses IPS!!!
And you just got served with something that is lesser than what you paid for! Knowing that, are you seriously getting this for the feel-good of what has a second-rated HD screen than another version that has a clearer, better angled, much vibrant screen?! Hahaha, seriously?
TMach, 04 Mar 2013I got this phone on Saturday and after using it constantly over the last 2 days, the battery h... moreHi buddy can u tell us about the looks r they really eye catching , iam interested in white , what say bro
I just got this phone in the UK, and I would like to say that it has an exceptionally impressive display. In addition to it its touch is pretty awesome with compared to other android phones and its camera is just brilliant though when you zoom in it gets blurred-that's because the camera of the Xperia Z automatically deletes the bad pixels and contains only the good piles in the photo to give you an overall good experience/view of the photo. Its battery life is amazing though the only problem i came over was the battery life reduces pretty fast down when you use it, but if its in stamina mode you hardly recognize the battery reducing. The other design default I came across the location of the speaker(right hand bottom of the phone, where it gets covered when you hold the phone-so please be cautious when you hold the phone while playing a song). Apart from those two the phone is just awesome. I think its a hard hit at Apple by Sony! I would recommend this phone to anybody. simply amazing.
AnonD-101525, 04 Mar 2013Quad core and big display has already shortn the battery life of cell phones, Now 1080p disp... moreYes, that's true. But we have to change according to the changing technology otherwise we have to bankrupt like Motorola or Nokia. The only remody to improve battery life is manufacturing a phone with higher battery capacity like LG.
This phone is a tad too late in the market!...Quadcore phones are all around much before then this model from SONY....They have lost it again...!!!!
I have a Samsung note 2 , LG Optimus,iPhone , Sony xperiza Z and padfone
Overall Sony is best
Samsung note have good UI which allow ppl to cut from clipart multitasking but limited app
LG Optimus powerful budget buy
IPhone nice and simple to use
I did not know how Sony do it in there hardware or software maybe with low resolution UI which give their battery last longer as for the HD it only when playing a video then it show I con current using it have the same size as my padfone but it last Much longer but of cause note 2 still slighty longer abit then Sony but the Sony graphic and video is truly amazing
The power button build quality is not so good. Its kinda shakeup. Any experiencing thesame
So, stop defending the battery is ok. It's on if you hardly use it. Advice is you get a second phone that is for regular use,then take out the Xperia Z when you need someone to impress. Do the math and science for the HD screen and small battery.
Here's a review:
"Minimal usage (excellent): With no 3G network, no WiFi and no GPS and a few moment with the display on, the Xperia Z can last for days without recharging. After 36 hours, the phone only used 50% of battery.
Regular usage (regular – could be better): With regular usage, the display set at full brightness, wifi on, GPS on checking emails, taking a picture or two, checking the internet and so on, the battery depleted by 20% in one hour. This use case assumes you may be outdoors and therefore need the higher brightness to compensate for the sunlight. The display remains the single largest source of power depletion in most tasks, except when gaming where the main processor may draw even more power.
Intensive usage (regular – could be better): I played a HD video over WiFi with the display in full brightness for half an hour and the battery dropped from 43% to 24 % – which is 21% per 30 minutes with intensive use.
Knowing that battery depletion is linear (for a given task) we can calculate that the battery will last roughly 2 hours and 30 minutes while watching videos non-stop over WiFi. We would have expected slightly better performance with the intense use, however, we know that a slim body cannot accommodate a high capacity battery (3000mAh+)."
