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.

sravan, 26 May 2013Pls tell me which phone is the best without any issues and problems Xperia-zl or xperia-zGo to XL
I am planning to buy a phone.
But, I am confused between -
1) Note 2
2) Xperia ZL
3) HTC One X plus
please advise me.
first of all, sony do make quality pieces. but when it comes to cellphone they just dont know how to make it right. i can barely here people talking to me on handset outside, and the mobile signal comes and goes as if im in some remote area that is not really covered by my carrier. sometimes i have to dial the same no. 3 times to make it through.
can't complain about the camera and the speaker, best i can find. and the battery is good enough for regular uses. i hold my opinion as im not an expert but to me it's kinda over bright, bit flashy. i dont care about the processor as long as it does what i want it to do as i expected. zl do well on that.
default apps are indeed garbage, especially the PSM app only makes u burn more cash rather than interact with ur playstations. sony put in a lot shit that u can play with other sony androids and sony apps/games, in a word, just hoping u burn more cash there. well not me.
you are doing well sony.
you made a good phone- xperia zl, but the battery drains too much, even after a recent system update. the worth of a phone lies in its functions based on a good battery strenth. other competitors are doing well in building strong batts. what is the essence of having a good phone and it cannot even last a whole in my biz transactions? why? please, please sony xperia do fix this issue now.
A week with ZL, the fact:
+ Best compact 5" phone with 1080p screen
+ 2013 spec(quad core+adreno 320)
+ Fast card reader(15MBps)
+ (almost)Bloatware free
+ Nice default app drawer
- No support for file size more than 4gb file
- Weak wifi signal
- Weak speaker
- DUMB default software(cannot easy copy and paste in dialer, no 1touch for screen rotation-flashlight-blah, default video/picture-galery confusing and cannot sort thing right, camera software can take picture erraticly, and the rant can go on)...thanks GOD it android so we can have 3rd parties support
- Shadowed by fear of "black spot in camera"
I was using zl from last 45days and it was working butter smooth.... but few days back microphone of zl was not working properly.. During call other party was not able to hear me.. Then I went to service center and they said it's fault of zl and I will get new zl... Within 2days I got new seal packed zl... I am so happy and I got my compact beast back.. I am satisfied with the service of Sony... I am from Lucknow(India).. Now no issue with my zl..:-)
I will give 10/10 to Sony for their quick and best serviceB-):-)
So i guess i should share my 2 cents about this device since i have been using it for almost 2 months now, here goes:
I bought the device mainly because it was the only multi band world phone available at the time and i was able to get it for $499 so i took the plunge, coming from a long line of nokia products it was either start using the lumia series with windows 8 or android, i philosophically disagree with apple so i don't use their products.
Setup was a breeze, voice quality is phenomenal on At&T's network i am in the chicago land area and pretty much travel around the wisconsin, illinois, indiana michigan area, bottom of lake michigan.
Battery life was better than the s3 and iphone5 with initial software until i got the upgrade. with inital software i was able to run on one charge for no less than 2days with the stamina mode on and mobile data constantly running. Now i find myself needing a charge virtually every 26-30hrs.
turn off the bravia engine, it really makes the screen look more natural, i use only the equalizer in walkman app and the sound is simply amazing with the sts premium sound system, plus i love the sensme channels.
The camera isn't great for pictures you wanna enlarge or use as wallpaper on big screens but it takes good shots of documents in well lit hotel rooms; i use it as a scanner and convert the images to pdf for work.
i find myself constantly looking for the right way to put the phone to my ear when i'm on the phone its just a futile struggle.
