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 moreSee dude..HTC one X, S3 and LG optimus G are quite outdated....Remaining is Nexus 4 N ZL..so if you want a pure android experience and fast updates matters to u then you can go for Nexus 4 if you want SONY custom ui or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)
a great phone every little thing in it is amazing so fast and so stable.... worth every penny to spend on

Anonymous, 11 Jun 2013hard to answer let me try first the facts HTC buttefly: + SD card slot + screen viewing ... moreThanx again buddy for ur reply..yah your opinion was really helpful...thanx for it..and zl is indeed a gud phone by all means..but gsmarena's reviews suggest it has a bad viewing angles..i hope they change their review as soon as possible..
Vk, 10 Jun 2013Hey thanx anonymous or watever your name is..its not any mistake in writing or anything its ju... morehard to answer
let me try first the facts
+ SD card slot
+ screen viewing angles
-/+ depending on your taste, the size this phone is big
- small battery
- 8 MP camera
+ faster chipset
+ screen viewing angles
-/+ depending on your taste, the size this phone is bigger than ZL, smaller than butterfly
- no SD card slot
- 4 MP camera
+ bigger battery
+ 13MP camera
+ SDcard slot
-/+ depending on your taste, the size this phone is smaller than any of those
- screen viewing angles
first off.. is really up to you, which one you like more, for me the SD card slot is a must, so that leaves the htc one out, and between butterfly and zl i would go for zl, just for 2 reasons memory and battery.
however i really got this phone because it was sony, plain and simple, almost everything i got from sony still works, even a 20+ years old TV set, and the colors are still bright =P so in the end is always really up to the user.
btw: your other comment was indeed confusing >.< and im glad i could help you n_n
would recommend this phone hand down - been using for 3 months now and can confirm it is the best that i have owned. can only be compared to gs4 & htcone but i would still prefer this for stylised design & color reproduction alone (apart from everything else it does)

Thanx in advance...
If this device is bad than sgs3 sgs4 and iphone 4 is worst. Come on yaar first use this device then comment this is good device as compared to note 2 and s3
This is the best phone I ever used battery back up is good better than samsung devices and also very good display and camera quality and much more
Vk, 09 Jun 2013Hey xperia zl user's i m interestd in buyng tes beauty wit te beast bt ter's one doubt..dus it... morefirst of....
your english/grammar/... whatever/... however you may call it is beyond "confusing" (if that word does even fit your comment)
with that said:
i believe you ask about the gaming capabilities of this phone, and if it lags when playing new games and/or HD videos, also you appear to be interested in wallpapers.
if this is the case, then NO, no noticeable lag can be seen while running games it does work smoothly and quite responsive.
on the HD video playback, the answer is the same, so far that you can even compare it to a PC playing a digital copy stored on SSD(solid state disk), or a bluray player. (i however, would recommend you buy a class 10 SD card).
about the wallpapers, they consume less resources than a game, however some tend to slowly fill the ram, even with this in mind, you can have your ZL working smoothly for a week maybe more, but is always good to reboot the phone every-other day so you can refresh the memory and avoid any lag.
on a side note, i just managed to configure the epsxe with the openGL plugin, the result is a stunning image, the render sprites look better than they would on a PC or the PS3 playing old ps1 games, sadly the emulator lags, and it does badly, so far that playing a fighting game (DOA, soul-blade) is nearly impossible, i believe this is due to the fact that everything is upscaled to 1080, and while the in-game cut-scenes run and look pretty (even when mirrored on a bravia TV), the games lags pretty bad, i really hope epsxe developers add a setting for render resolution like in the pc version, so you can render with openGL at 1024x768, i however know this phone is capable of rendering 16 and 32 bit sprites on openGL at 1080, if anyone else can test this emulator and can overcome this issue please post the settings
