sony xperia zl is awesomely powerful!
but!but!! the battery drains too much.
please work up updates to strengthen the battery, general applications ( especially 'socialife ), firmware etc. we don't want to part with it. we charge too often due to daily business routines. please fix it for us, sony! thank you. from: west africa brothers.
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2013does the remote application function really works?not only works
it is awesome!
you have no idea how much fun i am having with that!!
a lot of people (mostly guys) gathered around TVs on a big store, as "suspected" watching a stupid match (i really don't care about mainstream sports), usually all 7 to 10 or 15 tv sets are from the same brand and model, you take your phone, open the remote app and set the tv brand (you don't really need to config anything for new sets), you act as if you are texting someone, when one team is about to score you maliciously change the channel or just turn off the TVs... it is simply lovely, btw, you should act as everyone else "RAAAAAAGEEE!!!"
you have to sit on a waiting room for your appointment and there usually is a TV (with a DON'T TOUCH warning on it), usually in a channel where all you can watch is empty and meaningless, so you take your phone and simply change the channel surely some old ladies and young hipsters wannabes will complain, but you have just put a nice movie or at least a bearable show you can actually stand while you wait there.
you are in the mall and then you notice there is a (put brand name here) show, and there are some huge TVs displaying some propaganda, you just take your phone and voila ... :)
there is a sony show, but they just set their devices with "current" media or maybe (trying to appeal to the local culture) some folk or native stuff, if your phone has been paired before with the "screen mirror" view or the "throw" link with those devices (you can just go to a sony store and act like a kid "excuse me dear sir, i just got this phone, can you help me test its features?), you just enter the menu using the remote app, and put them to accept the connection from your phone, and then you can broadcast that movie you have, or your music, there is a thing with this and is that your phone's name (whatever you have name it) will be saved on those other devices, as its some sort of mix between Bluetooth and wi-fi, but if you did it well, no-one will really care to investigate what happened, they will just trey to keep on with the show.
and the last scenario, which happen to be my usual "mischief" you are simply bored, and waiting (wherever/anywhere) there is a sony tv, you just hook your phone using it to remote control the tv and mirror its screen and play some games or videos on a big screen while you spend your time waiting for whatever you are supposed to wait, then you just leave the tv off, or wherever it was set when you stop waiting for whatever you were waiting, happy to know you can do what a few can (at least for now, as this is becoming a usual thing with new devices).

Sony is sleeping....when it comes to update thing...you never learn to keep your promise we bought your flagship device thinking we will get the update as promised shortly after the device launch but its too late....n still no update to 4.2.2 come on Sony dont let other brand user brag in front of your customers about the latest update.....n we keep mum because our manufacturer is in AEROPLANE MODE
sonymobile7, 05 Jun 2013What about loudness of speaker and sound quality or purenessread other comments...
> In reply to sonymobile7 @ 2013-05-23 11:27 from iD6i - click to readmmm, this is a hard question, at first i was going to answer with your my opinion in a very subjective way, then 3 friends just showed up, we would just write what we thought of it on a paper and then we would all see, i know this doesn't make up a great test but is the best i can do.
Loudness of the speaker: normal, i mean it does kind of sound more loud than most, but is not that great of a deal
X-loud ON, sound pureness/quality: ok here we had some issues, i mean we all wrote something different, first of the treble seems to be greatly enhanced affecting it on low quality recordings (low bit-rate mp3s tend to sound worst and give that old radio feeling), the bass sounds better not minding the recording quality, there seems to be a "tape" feeling on some songs when the x-loud is on (that kind of "zzzzz" white noise you used to get on old cassettes, this was only said by one person we put some files after she said that but we couldn't notice that or any noise, she insist on it tho so im putting it here).
X-Loud OFF, sound pureness/quality: we all agree sound quality for a small speaker is good, however one of us is a silly apple fanboy and he kept saying iphone speaker is better, we only had one file to test it in booth devices, only he kept his opinion the rest didn't, i will leave him the benefit that it wasn't a loseless format, but all in all the speaker does a really good job.
please keep in mind that i made this with Symphonic music and an anime video in mkv with dts/flac audio, the music was in both mp3 and flac format, i hope this helps =P

Sam , 03 Jun 2013have ny1 ever experienced any hang or freeze of phone.?????? since it has non user removable ... moreif you had done so much reading about the phone , then you should know about the phone that it has a off button beneath the sim compartment near micro sd card slot just to serv that purpose of switchinf of the phone in case it hangs...
I have the Xperia ZL for almost 2 weeks now, and here are my feedbacks to all the comments posted and did actual worry me, until I found out the reality.
-) NO OVER HEAT ISSUE AT ALL, yes phone gets warm, but just like any device, warm and not hot to a level that it can not be held, as per previous comments.
-) Battery life, 48 hours go by with out stamina mode only when below 40 %, but I must admitt I am not a heavy day user, check my mails,surf,gaming a total of 1-2 hours during the day, at the evening games/downloading/FB/Tweeting 4-5 hrs...Charged it yestrday until 06:00 morning, today until now (16:00) 24%, which means after two days I needed to charge it.
-) ANGEL AND ALL, WHAT FOOL WANTS TO LOOK AT HIS PHONE AT AN ANGEL
-) Camera is good/decent,don't expect canon 60D,result
Screen size awesome
Screen sensitivity 10/10
All in all, its a good stylish nice looking device, must add that its not a plastic looking phone :-)
My XPERIA ZL is not charging when connected to Laptop.Can someone please let me know if this is a issue with my handset or ZL does not support charging when connected to Laptop/PC via USB.Please reply urgently.
I've had my ZL for almost three months and it died. Dead as a door nail. I left it on the charger and in the morning it was dead. No charging light and response to hard starts, attempts to update software and different charges. I've had sony phones for the last 7 years and have not had one die on me. This is a first and this is a first dealing with Sony support. MY GOD, SONY SUPPORT SUCKS! RUDE JERKS! I told them I wanted my phone fixed, replaced or refund. The women scoffed and said you ain't getting a refund. I paid 800 bucks for this brick and they scoff. To ad insult to injury they are making me pay to ship it to them to fix! I love sony gadgets but hate there customer service.
