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)

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

From ur review I am confirmed that u have never seen zl and u dnot have zl.... First buy zl and then make a review...
Zl display is best in the market except viewing angle... Viewing angle dosent bother me coz I use zl holding in front of my eyes not from sides...
Camera is excellent and it's mobile camera not Dslr camera..
NOW it's 2month using zl and I am happy with my compact beast

In ur chinese mobile....because Xperia ZL has one of the finest display in da market...among TFT display n I m not sure u talking about ZL or just spamming here
Hey did anyone notice the dial pad tone is very low...in ZL previously lyk in my acro s...it was way loud dont knw wat is da prob with my ZL
after the rebirth of 'sony' mobile, this is my first sony handset. I purchased this only because of the exaggerated advertisements seen in local news papers and tv. before this, my mobile was Galaxy S-2 and to upgrade the specifications and performance I selected this one. But I really disappointed with my Xperia-zl. I paid 34,600.00 for this mobile. the pros and cons are as follows
1.very attractive design, never seen for any other mobiles
2.good ring volume
3. speedy battery charging with good backup.
1.very bad display.very dull display even compared with my Chinese "Gionee" normal mobile.
4. very bad camera
ONEGEM, 07 Jun 2013sony xperia zl is awesomely powerful!
but!but!! the battery drains too much.
please work up ... morethere is a way to slightly increase your battery life.
here check the "adapt to lighting conditions" box, and move that silver dot to the left so the screen will go darker.
some people dislike this, it is no problem for me, actually i have only used my phone at max brightness one time, on the other hand, with this configuration the ZL screen is still more bright than my old android phone so i really don't mind it and still enjoy it quite a lot.
also, you can just disable the data connection via the onscreen widget when you don't need it
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).
