I really taught to guy this phone. But after I saw HTC One its impressed me. So far I think HTC One will be best for me. However Sony has advantage in water resistance and dust proof over HTC one that's not rally big deal when compared to HTC One its really innovative. But can't say its the best phone of the year because Samsung Galaxy S4 has to be released. These articles will prove that.
Snapdragon s4 pro/snapdragon 600 same chipset but different name. Still reviewing specs htc one vs sxz.
battery life from xda developers actual user testimonials
1)After using the phone for over a week now I can honestly say that:
- Lasts 6-8 hours of constant heavy use, as in toy-mode
- Lasts 1 full day, as in 6:00 to 22:00 of heavy use
- Lasts over 48 hours when used as a phone, as in 1-2 hours of mp3, texts, few phone calls
It could be better, battery life could always be better, but i'm pretty happy with it. It gets me through the day without worrying about saving energy - that's all I asked for.
2)I have used now my XZ now some days.
on the first day I was just and though I can see the percentage numbers go down every minute on normal use.
now after 4+ days and few charges its lot better.
I can use it 2days w/o stamina mode in moderate use(email/whatsapp/browsing/../no gaming no wlan) and so its not worse than my Note I had before.
3)A friend of mine already got his Z and we talk everyday on whatsapp. He unplugged the device before 10 in the morning at at 12 his battery percentage dropped from 100 to 99%. He said he listened to 10 songs, checked facebook, instagram and used another app a bit. Always connected to internet (I guess mostly wifi at home and 3G when on the move).
He actually send me a screenshot of his battery stats, which showed he wasn't lying (2h and something on standby, 99%). I told him to look into his screen on time and he said 30 minutes.
Now this sounds incredible, but even so he wouldn't really have a reason to lie to me. Even if the battery life turns out a little bit worse then what he said, it would be very nice.
I'm getting my own XZ tomorrow so will post here with first impressions.
" Sony Xperia Z: Battery life
In use the Xperia Z not only lasted a day but went a good way through a second. We went 31 hours and still had 20 percent of the battery remaining. We achieved this with moderate usage and the Stamina Mode switched on. "
there are loads more similar stories.
Sony Xperia Z now had 2 version ! One for the smartphone and another was for the tablet ! Its cool
A masterpiece from Sony that can beat any other phone in its comparison
Sorry but SIII is simply older phone and far behind. I would not be suprised o see SIV being better then Z but we will see.
I didnt notice any lags or software problems. Its working smooth like a breeze and sound quality is very good. Camera starting fast and is eay to use.
Its not a small phone but fits well in my hand (i dont have big hands).
Call quality very good. I didnt notice any inconvinience about speaker and mic placement.
Battery life still to be seen.
BTW black is really black... :). Its not as bright as new HTC ONE but putting it on full brightness its making everything really bright.. and its feeling a little like hurting eyes.
I read a lot (kindle) and text is super sharp. Really amazing on this.

You have to be pretty daft to be moto fanboy (why on earth would anyone like moto) but if you didnt know that X10 has no multitouch then why are you referring to it?
This is absolute and total proof that you do not like to know, you only like to talk.

Do you understand that Retina is not a type of display but the resolution of the screen? That TFT is much the same as LCD? And that most manufatcturers, Apple, HTC, LG etc use LCD? I think you need to go buy another phone and forget all about the headphones. You do not deserve this phone! Go buy a Samsung plastic phone or an iToy!

how is the camera, battery life, sound quality and whatever exceptional you notice on this beauty.
It is really annoying to me when the black is not pure black. Sony could use some other technology than the TFT screen. Amoled and retina are more crisper than this.
On top of that the phone is really so wide and doesnt fit good in my hand....
I found the phone a bit slow compared to the S3. Camera starts like after a day...ahh...!!!
Gonna cancel the order if I do not get the free headphone worth of 299 pounds in the UK.....
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2013S4 have nothing new other than 2 GHz processor and 13 mp camera -_- ram still 2GB :\
"Water resistant up to 1 meter and 30 minutes"
When will the international unlock version will be available for purchase online?
Just got my Xperia Z (I am switching from Galaxy SII and I was using SIII for some time) And boy what a phone. Great design and quality build. Screen AMAZING. Forget about view angles, if YOU are using it its just makes your eyes cry how beautiful it is. For people looking from the side its not as great. One of the rerasons why i bought it.. PRIVACY.
Call and sound qulity really great.
Big suprise how light it is.
