May be you are lucky enough but if you see sony support community forum for ir blaster problem, you will notice its major problem worldwide. I guess you are among the few lucky ones. Congrats for owning this handset.
very good phone!!! Xperia ZL FTW! :) comfortable to hold, great display, and specs! superb! wish it has Triluminos technology+water proof,dust resistant and it would be perfect! 9.8/10 :)
zl really is a good phone ! satisfied ! everything works great ! recomend this to everyone but my only concern is lack of acc for zl
I own this beauty and I love it! it may not as expensive and exclusive as Z, S4 or One but im feeling really proud when holding it right next to S4 (just now in the restaurant :D). Actually words cant express my feelings ha ha ha
This phone is good.. Rally most compact 5" screen phone for now.. Everything is smooth and good..
Camera, use scene mode for better photo.
IR blaster, air conditioner can't be used.. I think due to 2 way signal transmit for air cond and the temperature. Bt other can use for all in my home.
Gaming, smooth and no lag at all. Do rmb, warm is a must while hard gaming. Don't aspect it won't be warm or hot..
Walkman, good audio quality..normal loudness, good to compatible with earphone.
Battery, big and lasts long. 1 day per charge for heavy usage like screen on time 5hours. 1 day per charge. Low or medium usage can last for 1 day or more.
Overall, smooth for daily usage and multitasking.. Nothing more to request from it.. Hopefully can get better camera improvement in further update, 4.2.2.

mine works perfectly, and if the app does not have the device i want i simply put the controller to the side of the phone, and let the app learn the function from the original controller, so far it has worked with every single device i tried, this even works with very old TV sets, a very old INFRA *creative labs* CD-ROM drive (which i currently use as a CD stereo), a genius TVGO and a *micomsoft* X-RGB-2plus none of them listed on the app, no idea why your phone doesn't work
Dear Friends, If planning to buy ZL considering its IR Blaster feature, please note that IR Blaster does not work with learnt IR Codes. Sony as of now has no solution or this problem. Rest the phone is excellent I am using since 3 months. But I had bought this looking into IR Blaster function hence dissapointed now.
I've had this phone for a week now, and i got to say, its the best phone i've ever had. Im glad i picked the ZL and not the Z because of the size, the ZL is perfect, the same size as nexus 4 and i have no complaints at all about the performance, everything is runs smooth. I love the UI customization by sony, its really easy to put widgets and change the theme or background. The screen is mindblowing, i had my doubts about it because of the viewing angles, but guess what, its not a big deal AT ALL! screen is just amazing, colors are alive in it.
i truly recommend this phone, it was about time that sony matches the competition, and they're doing an excelent job. Im glad i came back to sony, my last one was the k850. Keep it up the good work sony!
rooting my xperia zl is safe or not?,please some body give me reply...
Mark, 14 Jun 2013Im about to buy a quad core smartphone next week, and im still confused of what should i buy, ... moreSee dude..HTC one X, S3 and LG optimus G are quite outdated....Remaining is Nexus 4 N ZL..so if you want a pure android experience and fast updates matters to u then you can go for Nexus 4 if you want SONY custom ui or dont mind getting updates after months of release of an update consider ZL..i own a ZL by the way.
Other things for you to decide is below.
1.ZL has memory card slot Nexus dont have one(either fixed 8or16GB variant)
2. ZL has 5" FULL HD 1080p mind blowing display vs 4.7" 720p IPS True HD display on Nexus
3.ZL has LTE variant Vs 3G only variant(GSMARENA COMPARE)
4.IR blaster Remote control On ZL
5.ZL has better display outside with contrast and with good audio(audio gsm arena compare)
Now its in your hand what you want others are same specs and i suppose you already know that....you mentioned quad core...in the begining..does it matter you go for octa core S4...its good(but i dont prefer sammy phones noffence to sammy users)
