How about the scratch resistance in the Sony Xperia Z smartphone? I ask this 'cause in some reviews on the web I read that the glass panels on the phone are easely scratched especially the one on the back. In some comments they blame the plastic anti-shatter film of this. Is this true? One of this reasons I want this phone is because it doesn't need any kind of protection or cover (at least that's what SONY claims in one their advertisements), I'll be very thankfull for your help!
i bought this phone, its a nice phone feels good in the hand, not bulky at all weight is evenly distributed. the screen is good, although i noticed a bit of washout when u select the menu screen i had applied the standard Xperia theme.
On the battery front i have just had it for 2 days now so its kinda hard to comment on that.
although i am thinking of passing it on to my brother, i cannot use a 5inch screen phone .. its tooo big .. i was using a iphone 5 and before that SG3.. the SG3 was great until every person in my office decided to have it.
there is a big difference in size compared to iphone 5 and XZ. anyone who is used to 3.5 - 4 inches will find it lil hard to adjust this in the pocket.
hope it helps, it is a great phone no doubt ... i hope in the coming months same feature phone screen size down to a 4inch ... 5inches is too big.

Hei GSMAarena! what's wrong with u?
Why u don't post Xperia Z's battery test in blog?
It's being almost 3 weeks for now, since u did Xperia Z's review.
It's so bad.
jaztech, 04 Mar 2013Just a heads up to anyone who wants to buy this phone...
You may not know that sony covers... morein acro S too, kind of sucks. i dropped a usb cable on the screen and there is a scratch on the lousy sheet protector. never had this problem with htc chacha before...
still waiting for htc one (please stop referring to it as one X as there's already an htc one x out there) and samsung s4 though... exciting!
Just a heads up to anyone who wants to buy this phone...
You may not know that sony covers their glass with a plastic film (it has been done for the Xperia T, and has been carried onto to the Xperia Z as well). They suggest you don't take the film off. The film gives a shatterproof property to the phone, but at the same time attracts dust due to its plastic nature, and is very easily scratched.
Without it, the glass may or may not attract more finger prints. Anyone currently holding a Z/ZL please confirm this (take a closer look). Also, the box comes with an additional screen protector, so if you put it on, it may further worsen the sensitivity of the screen... Otherwise, great phone!
con, 03 Mar 2013I can't help myself but notice that the screen of this phone is inferior even to the last year... moreIf you want a better display here is your options (highest to lowest).
xperia z is awesome...i like it...i very excited to buy it..!! yeay..!!
Great phone for those reasons:
- Nice 5 inch High Definition screen with amazing pixel density.
- It has 4G/LTE which allows you to watch youtube and downloads at fast speeds.
- Great camera even at night.
- Reasonable price.
This is the best as of now!!
Just waiting for my HTC One to arrive from Handtec then my phone set is complete, for now. Always have two phones so nothing better than rocking the two top phones from my favourite manufaturers! One for work and one for play!
Oh, by the way, the camera rocks too so forget the haters. if you want better pics, suggest you buy a SLR Camera!
con, 03 Mar 2013I can't help myself but notice that the screen of this phone is inferior even to the last year... moreYou would never say that if you have actually used the phone! Watch a movie or video on this and marvel. Screen so sharp, I think my eyes are gonna pop!
why don't you do the battery test of this flagship phone?
you have done even galaxy xcover and we are waiting for the battery test of this one while you don't care.
and there are lots of missing specs on this page.
why don't you pay attention to Sony phones??
