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?
sonymobile7, 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
Does the new update fixes ear volume , mic , charging issues

To Sohaano :
Tips to have a longer battery life for your Sony Xperia ZL, just go to Power Management, ON the Stamina Mode, then go to Display lower your Brightness stat more than a half, and lastly uncheck the Mobile Bravia Engine 2 , specially when you're using internet thru wifi connection or internet sim (Data Sim Card). Because the Higher Display Capacity of Sony Mobile Bravia Engine take a lot of battery consumption. It will be helpfull just try my advice. Thanks...
