With what you've said, I'm getting the ZL for sure earliest by next week. I'll share more of my experiences and thoughts on this device after I grab one myself. By the way, are you still using the ZL for now?

Apple brand is for pleasure
Samsung brand is for fashion & trending,
And Sony is for useful and money worth it, I'm using now Sony Xperia ZL and I'm contented and happy to use it. My previous phone was Iphone 4S very nice & smooth to use but I got a little bored because of some limited apps to use. And then I shift to Samsung Galaxy S4, i expect a good speed but most of the time lag comes out and heating problem is an issue specially when I used it for internet calling and games apps. After that I sell my S4 and shift again to Sony Xperia ZL it is fashionable, very good performance, and mostly elegant look. I've got everything I want from a smartphone thru Sony Xperia ZL, Walkman apps for a high class music, Mobile Bravia Engine 2 for a high class movie watching, Exmor HDR Camera for a perfect camera performance, and lastly a perfect high quality display on a smartphone. All Sony is money worth it and I'll prove it. Thanks

May have to wipe the Xperia Z quite frequently and it cost S$100 more than Xperia ZL. Performance wise, both Z & ZL seems on par. Major differences is the design. But I'll still go for Xperia ZL then!

I will have to wipe it every now and then. Another thing, zl is having advantage when it comes to camera because of its dedicated camererase button. Zl is more handy.
AnonD-187391, 22 Sep 2013Xperia Z also a good phone..How about u ZL camera peformance??Camera of zl is much better than z. U can focus the subject much easier with its shutter button. U can open the camera with in 2 seconds.

I'm definitely getting a Sony device in october. I'm getting bored of Samsung. Samsung device are becoming too mainstream in Singapore. Just thinking between ZL or Z. How's the battery life though? And is it a good device for occasional gaming?
AnonD-44008, 19 Sep 2013Anyone has low ear piece volume, mic issuesame here, but the volume can be increased if u root the phone
I did a Factory reset after the update but it doesn't solves the battery issue. Don't know why.. Hoping for the next update..
i would like to persuade bloggers to stop giving opinions as if you really owned a unit. you can ask but not pretending that you know everything. there are alot of bloggers just to destroy the quality of sony. for prospective buyers of zl, go ahead. this unit is better than other flagship units available. the only downside of the unit is the cover flap of sim and micro sd. battery is not an issue. its just the same with other smartphones. afer my innovate(samsung) omnia 2(samsung),galaxy s(samsung) i tried sony xperia s.then i realized the diff. of samsung and sony. i did not sell my xperia s after i bought my zl unlike my samsung units which i found them useless after acquiring a new unit. believe me..sony units are made to last. tnx for reading and hope this clears the issue about zl. BUY sony
After updating 4.2.2 of Jelly bean, users who faces troubles to use smoothly and problems of some apps, bugs. That is why Sony releases an update 10.3.1.A.0.244 which is workable and solves problems. It is smooth to use.
