Best Android phone I got : I had the Nexus One, Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus and Samsung S3.
The battery last for almost 3 days, the custom Android 4.2.2 from Sony is so well done, the "shortcut" at the top for the options like WiFi On/Off are direct and not a shortcut to the settings.
And with the Quad-core, it's blazingly fast, no ag at all.
Best Android phone right now IMHO. :)
KARAN, 29 Jun 2013what is the real price in market, and is it water proofNo, it's not water proof. Seriously, why people keep thinking ZL is water proof when the spec or white paper stated it isn't.
Hello guys.i m using this phone for last 1 month,first of all sony has great camera quality,i use viber,whats up and facebook and some another running applications but at 10pm it shows 55-60% remaining battery life,i was using samsung s4 but samsung does not take gud picture in low light and very slippery in hand so go for sony xperia zl,, it is cheaper than samsung s4
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2013I cant decide bw xperia zr and galaxy s3.plz helkp me guys..................If u cmpre s3 to zl of course Zl is far better . I own zl and for me the screen is better than s3 by far
I cant decide bw xperia zr and galaxy s3.plz helkp me guys..................
how long is the battery life when this phone use for whatsapp, twitter, instagram and the other social media? Can it stand for more than 12 hours when you keep your mobile data on?
um i seem to have some issues with the mirroring screen after the update!
before it was quite easy! just go to the TV menu, bravia sync "enable", set your phone to connect and enjoy!
after the recent update i cant seem to be able to connect that way, i need to do it via NFC, and this is an issue!
a lot of people ask me what is so great about this phone when i go to a mall or shopping center, but i can only connect when the people there have the remote control at hand, before i did NOT needed the control for any reason.
since i can connect ONLY BY THE NFC, BUT no longer connect just by setting the TV to connect and use the phone, i point to the recent update.
when you switch from the remote control app to the mirror screen app in the new update its slow!! TOO SLOW!!(same for camera app from the lockscreen)
with the past software it was faster...
please if anyone else is having this kind of issues (or not having them) i would be very welcome to know is not just me
also I'm having issues with angry birds space...
on the bright side:
the Bluetooth audio streaming now is awesome much more clear than before, a samsung home theater recognized the 5.1 from a video i was trying to stream, i highly doubt it was streaming in 5.1 but before it did not recognized the sound format, and it wasn't so clear so this is a plus!
the streaming distance now is longer, the phone can be further away from the other device you are connecting now this is a big plus.
IR blaster also seems to have a longer action area
i am really sad about the screen mirroring, it is one of my beloved features on this phone u.u
the lag and such i can deal with, but i hope they fix the mirror screen thingy
i also believe the sound of the phone's speaker is better, but that may just be me
on other note, my battery seems to have improved after the update, now i come back home with about 74-80%, before i got home with 50-60% and use the phone almost the same almost everyday but then again, that must just be me
hello i want buy a sony mobile but i confused that which phone i want buy z or zl ?

Just got this powerhouse phone 3 days ago. Battery sucks. Power drops really fast and i dont have wi-fi, data, or apps running. Just using for calls only. My LED notification is not blinking for sms alerts or misssed calls although I have set this option set on in the settings. Can any one help with this problem? Thanks.
Im dying to buy the Z Ultra, it's just a matter of time though, you guys should wait for this 2.2GHz phablet, but if you running low on cash, you can always buy the ZL
I've recently bought this ZL,looks like much better than S3,but don't have much ideas about S4...all the features are really good in here with ZL.........!
I have this phone for 9 days and I think this is one of the best android phone. The size of the phone is just right with its really sharp 5" screen. The looks is really good. It runs more than 30 hours with 10% battery remaining after approx. 15 min of phone talk, lot of browsing and using app.
After updating to Android 4.2.2, I think the battery is more efficient because I just updated the phone yesterday. Well done Sony and I love this phone.
