AnonD-111105, 05 Jul 2013Hiiiii dear ZL users...i want to buy a new smartphone...please help me to choose between ZL or... moreI tried both Samsung S4 9505 4G and Sony Xperia ZL. Sony phone is much responsive, I mean u will feel the power or processing ur touche. In the other hand Samsung phone is still lagging and twice in a week I needed to take out the battery after freezing. After I received an update from samsung, just the same without fteezing.
Samsung S4 gets hot to ears if u put Wifi or 4G on. Really intolerably hot. Earpeice might help but disappointed.
Note2 is a better choice if u r a Samsung fan.
One more thing is the poor battery backup of the S4. If u r connected to the net-without active surfing- ir willl last maximally 10 hours with regular average calls. Note that I disabled all fancy functions except the smart stay.

AnonD-111105, 05 Jul 2013Hiiiii dear ZL users...i want to buy a new smartphone...please help me to choose between ZL or... moreU hv chosen 2 nice set. It is to mantion here that if u are interested on camera , I suggest u to prefer xperia ZL which have EXMOR RS sensor for low light footage and world's first Exmor sensor with HDR technology which can shoot photo/video in extreme vivil light. Battery life is good in ZL and also it looks nice in design. Display 5" with full HD 1080x1920 pixel with 441 ppi pixel density give u a sharp display. Sony's mobile BRAVIA ENGINE 2 gives u a nice color and clear emage in photo & video.....on the other hand one thing I can say in Samsung s4 that it has a super AMOLED display with same ppi 441 full HD and battery life is same as Sony ZL. But camera is not batter than Xperia ZL. So now it is your decision to choose one from Zl & S4. But one thing to remember never forget to check your phone properly before buying it.
I thought of my Xperia ZL supports 4G LTE but it doesn't, cos model-C6502 doesn't have 4G LTE......!
From my side I advice you to bye the new experia Z or ZL in compares ion between S4 3G and S4 LTE for my openion that one is much better than samsung if you compare between the screen quality and display and camera options too..an don't forget the week body of samsung they are using the cheapest plastic coveres.
my comments about sony xperia mobiles,all mobiles very best looking functions applications but there is a big problem because many mobiles batteries are non removeable battery must be removeable.
Hiiiii dear ZL users...i want to buy a new smartphone...please help me to choose between ZL or S4....my main question is about camera performance...ZL has been updated to 4.2.2...howz the camera performance compared to S4...reply me help me...thankyou guyz...
guys.. sony usb quick charger..
mine is EP880 charger model.
what is quick charger?
and anyone please tell properly, how long it takes to charge your mobile from 1% to 100% charge?
Xperia Z or ZL is the best phone ever. It's camera is the best of all. Sony uses Exmor RS which can shoot picture/Video in low light. Also HDR technology gives the opportunity to shoot clear photo/video in vivid light. BRAVIA engine 2 gives you a nice color combination while plays video/still image. Tha 2370 mAh battery gives you long life for continuous browsing or chatting upto 4/5 hours and long life using battery saving options. Everyone should come to know that Android jelly bean 4.1.2 or 4.2.2 need single or not more than double core processor of 1.5 Ghz to run, but Xperia ZL/Z have the Quad (4) core processor of 1.5 Ghz and 1GB RAM is sufficiant for smooth browing and operating builtin necessary apps. where Xperia Z/ZL has the 2GB DDR2 RAM. 5" Crystal clear display 1080x1920 resulation with 441 ppi pixel density. So i will suggest you if you comparing it with other phones , the camera of the Z/ZL is best, battery life is accecptable (if u know the better use), smooth to use and nice design.
manoj, 02 Jul 2013Hi, dear zl users, could any of you please tell me whether this phone lags while scrolling thr... moreDear Manoj if u hv xperia zl , i dont know u hv updated it or not. if not , updated jelly bean 4.2.2, hope your problem will be solved. But it is to inform you that i have been using it for 2 months and there is no hang related problem faced for a single time for any page or app. yet after and before updating the latest version of Android OS. Xperia ZL is a very smooth phone with powerfull devices. After updating jelly bean 4.2.2 if u will face the same prob u should replace the phone from where u brought if u hv warrenty.
guys pls tell me the batery is poor or good and this phone having problem such as heating when using app like xz.pls reply me soon.bcoz i am planning 2 buy xzl
manoj, 03 Jul 2013Hi, dear zl users, could any of you please tell me whether this phone lags while scrolling thr... morehave NOT noticed any lag at all
also if your S4 lags on contact list you should reinstall the android and re-sync, is a curious comment from an S4 user
i have all my contacts with pictures, and they all have a lot of information (many numbers, mails, notes, and such) i still have contacts from about 15 years ago (who i don't really talk to x.x, but have keep up to date with their contact information) so i have plenty of contacts
on other note i been having some issues with the MX player after the update, now i use the BSPlayer, and it has worked like a charm, it also has some nice features the MX player lacks, please consider having both.
about the mirroring screen, if you cant mirror and don't have the TV's remote control at hand, turn off the TV (maybe unplug it), then turn on and go to the menu, on the input section when you access "guide" select the screen mirror (you don't need to go to Bravia sync), then use the "screen mirror" widget on your phone and you should be ready to go.
before i could connect a stereo (Bluetooth) and the TV, after the update i no longer can do this the phone tells me it can hold the MHL connection, so keep in mind you will only be able to connect only one device.
the signal strength of the mirror also seems to be weak after update since the tv looses it at about 2 meters, before update the signal worked at about 4 meters.
on the angry birds issues, try updating the game, if not then reinstall and it should work, angry birds space and star wars stopped working, they re-updated and now work as usual.
and again, battery life improved after update, also noticed it remains cooler (could be because of a silicone pouch i got for it tho)
Hi, dear zl users, could any of you please tell me whether this phone lags while scrolling through contacts and messages as does s4(it lags and hangs a lot) or it scrolls smoothly ? thanks in advance
brye, 02 Jul 2013Hi, I'm from the Philippines i would like to ask if LTE will work here? 'Coz i've seen some se... morehi, yes Smart and ng globe offers LTE(unfortunately, only on major cities/areas so far) but you need an LTE-capable sim to be able to enjoy LTE speed. if you do not have LTE-capable sim and you have a ZL LTE, you will be limited to 3.5G speeds.
2 xperia ZL versions are being sold locally(gray market, dont know with Sony Philippines). one gray market seller from sulit.com.ph sells C6503(LTE) and C5302(HSPA+) variants.
brye, 02 Jul 2013Hi, I'm from the Philippines i would like to ask if LTE will work here? 'Coz i've seen some se... morehello.
im from the Philippines and I bought a ZL c6503 lte model from xperia store. the salesperson asked me if my sim card was LTE but my sim card isnt unfortunately. So I think LTE will work as long as you have an LTE sim from one of our networks with LTE. and you should be in an area with LTE coverage.
By the way? Where did you find a ZL 3g only model? I was looking for that one but the sony salesperson said that it isnt available
Hi, I'm from the Philippines i would like to ask if LTE will work here? 'Coz i've seen some selling xperia ZL 3g only. I thought ZL is a 4g phone. Can anyone enlighten me? Thank You!
