redX, 26 Jul 2013Have your phone really start working with Manual Setup of IR remote control ? can it transmit ... moreyes, and yes i know about the issue.
android: generic 4.2.2 most recent update
XRGB 2+: works, max distance 3 meters
Genius TVGO: works, max distance 4-5 meters
Infra 48oo: works, max distance 2 meters
7" SILVER LCD tv: works, max distance 6 meters
ok what i do is: on the remote control app> add device> manual setup> chose any, then push power (i always start with power), learn signal info appears so "start", when the next screen shows place original remote control at about 1 cm (or about the thickness of your small finger) away from the phone (obviously pointing at the IR blaster), keep the button on the controller pressed, do not press it multiple times, KEEP IT PRESSED.
when the phone says it learned the signal, don't teach more signals, push next and then test it, chances are it will be working (my old led damaged phone also worked), now u can edit this new remote and add more buttons, also you can change the color palette; also i have noticed that the most difficult signals to set are channel +, volume + and the number 7.
also i must tell you that it was too hard to make the remote learn signals when it had the branded android, i am strongly against branded software as it is full of bugs, tends to make phones slower and drain more battery, what i have seen is it also blocks some of the phone's features, doesn't update at all, and has a lot of google play apps blocked... etc.
on a very personal belief (not proven ofc) i have the feeling that branded android also comes with spyware (talk about paranoid), so i strongly dislike it
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2013mmm i wouldn't go along every video or comment on the internet, here is my personal experience... moreHave your phone really start working with Manual Setup of IR remote control ? can it transmit learned signals now ?
Pls recheck it and confirm, then many of us will also give the phone to service center.
ash01, 25 Jul 2013only thing stoping me from going for zl is screen protector and glass breaking issue many hav... morethere is only one issue with IR blaster, that is...its unable to transmit learned signals (Manual setup)
Andro, 25 Jul 2013is it true that the xperia zl sensor only available in xperia C6502?what sensor?
if you talking about the barometer, i have no idea
see i have the c6502 which supposedly has it, but so far no app recognizes it, if you go to forums you will see that it appears to be disabled or something.
judging from what the apps (which is the only way a normal joe would test the phone for barometer), tell you, i would say simply that the phone doesn't have one.
either way is really a shame, this phone is awesome.
ash01, 25 Jul 2013only thing stoping me from going for zl is screen protector and glass breaking issue many hav... moremmm i wouldn't go along every video or comment on the internet, here is my personal experience.
ok first of i finally decided to take my ZL for repair, since the notification led was not lighting green, all colors but green, everything else worked, but i got so annoyed i took it to repair, i got a new one now, which i have tested with everything you can test this phone, mirror screen, NFC, GPS, BT, IR blaster-learn commands... etc.
so this one is fully functional.
now as a response to your comment, i went to a sony event where they where showing the ZL, i was on a table where 2 phones accidentally fell of the table and it was so crowded that both where stepped on, one of them was by a woman on heels, the screen was facing up and hold all the heel pressure on, the other fell with the screen facing down, so the plastic back cover held the "step on", all the guys from sony did after the incident was pick the phones, clean them and keep showing them, i took a look at them and only the back of one was scratched, not even the glass; when i got this new they told me that it was strange, since most ppl go there just for configuration issues, a guy took a working "showcase" one and hit the counter with it, "see this phone is quite strong", i took a look at it and it was fine.. (not that i would ever do that to mine) then, someone had just bought one, and she dropped it from the counter, which is at about the height of an average person's chest, however, nothing happened to the screen; i have seen some nasty videos on youtube, and i do understand your concern about the screen, but i haven't seen the first one breaking or scratching on real life, what i have actually seen is how it withstand abuse o.o
I am planning to bye eXperia ZL any bad comments about it ????? any bad points which telss me not to bye???
only thing stoping me from going for zl is screen protector and glass breaking issue many have broken screen in one drop and 2 ir blaster does not work all the time

sgsr, 23 Jul 2013Want to buy this phone in a few month.
But still curious about the screen.
Is it good or bad... moreYou can buy Xperia ZL without any confusion of it's display. No doubt it is very clear and sharp coz it has HD 1080x1920 display having 441 ppi pixel density. I m using Samsung Galaxy S3 and
Xperia ZL but xperia ZL is the best in every side.
Sammi, 23 Jul 2013let me put it straight this time ..... does Model C6502 suppots 4G LTE ...???? if not, what ar... moreyes, I'm in India and also want to know whether X-C6503 & C6506 is available in here...!

And about the screen protector. Is it good?
JEET INDIA, 23 Jul 2013apology for my ignorance, but what to do with a screen shot? I have taken few but dont find a... moreis a practical thing, so you can capture long texts or number faster than if u were to type them somewhere, it also works when you achieved a high score on a game and want to be a show off, also it is really helpful when u need to configure something and other person away asks how is the phone currently configured, so you don't have to dictate a number or different options you just send them the image, it is also very helpful when you don't want to save an unknown number that just called you, when you need to clean your phone list for whatever reason, also and one of my favorite reasons is that you can do this:
so you can actually share "perfect" moments; in the end is a tool, so is OK if you don't use it, but it would be very bad if it wasn't there
Sammi, 23 Jul 2013let me put it straight this time ..... does Model C6502 suppots 4G LTE ...???? if not, what ar... moreno c6502 does not support 4G, at least not with the factory android, i do NOT know if it does have a 4G radio/modem, and is just software locked, you could try flashing the android of the C6506 or the C6503, those 2 models do have the 4G support, see if it does work.
on another comment, to take screenshot on the old firmware press the power button, there should be an option to take screenshots, on the last update you have to hold "volume down" button and power button at the same time, i really liked the old screenshot option, now is just a little bit annoying
