akshayf20, 27 Apr 2013Guys plz help.... Xperia ZL or Galaxy S3 ????????Xperia ZL is better then s3
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2013Phone is marginal at best, screen is meh, phone quality is like talking through a tin can and ... more Either you are smoking crack n have no idea what you r typing or you are grossly mistaken! Sony ZL is by no means a lesser device to say htc one or GS4! It has one of the best screens in the market today (save for the viewing angles, this issue is WAYYY overblown). I would say it is crisper/more vibrant than htc one head on (you may check comparison videos on youtube)& overall better than S4 pentile SAMOLED (having greenish hue) with regards to colour temperature/accuracy.
And I completely lost you when you said about call & sound quality. ZL has one of the best call/sound quality on android (gsmarena review confirms it). The sim/sdcard flap could've been better placed as in XZ but is no way flimsy that it would break off, its good quality actually (better than Samsung back/battery covers anyway)! And imo sony design & build quality is much better than others (esp. Samsung).
The camera has great potential & sensor used is very good (same as on GS4), see the burst mode shots for example! A software update can easily fix the current auto mode compression/noise suppression issues. Overall the camera is better than say htc one. Hence imo ZL is for sure one of the best smartphones of 2013 so far along with XZ, One & GS4. Each smartphone having their respective strong & weak points!
mobgamer, 26 Apr 2013Completely bs post. If u don't like xperia products don't post here- especially with no facts ... moreSorry how is my post bs? I had one and returned it. I also had the HTC one and one x , both HTC phones are far superior. No I don't have "facts" in terms of silly test numbers from running silly testing programs but facts from real world usage.
One real fact is the phone is $20 less than the HTC ONE. You can use the "facts" in the testing shown on this site to prove to yourself that based on gsmarena's testing that for only a $20 savings does not make the ZL the best phone available.
I have no hate for the Xperia, but the reality is it is not the best, it is not the best for the money. Compared to the ONE and the S4 it is marginal at best.
Also these comments are not here just for possitive talk but for opinions and questions. Sorry if I hurt your feelings, but the phone just isn't worth the same cash as the ONE.
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2013Phone is marginal at best, screen is meh, phone quality is like talking through a tin can and ... moreCompletely bs post. If u don't like xperia products don't post here- especially with no facts to speak. This is an excellent phone with the best audio quality and fantastic battery life. The screen is only marginally behind htc one and s4. And it is around 10k cheaper than s4 and HTC one- this is the best value for money phone this year period.
Just 2 days and i already done a big scratch on my screen. Someone can confirm where is printed the sony logo? Screen or protector?
If u r making expensive phones, and again launching that phone jst adding a single letter after it, it doesnt give a change but its worthless. launch other version of that but make it cheap so ppl can afford it.
i'm confused about this screen protector they gave...
so i've to install or it already installed...?
Phone is marginal at best, screen is meh, phone quality is like talking through a tin can and a string. Loud speaker is useless, phone in speaker mide is scary bad.
Little flap on back for SIM and memory card is cheap and easily broken off and lost.
Camera is nothing special.
Should win best mediocre high priced phone for 2011.
below is kind of User Review of the phone
I have been using this phone for the past 2 weeks and following is my opinion of the phone
The Loudspeaker of the phone is not very loud(neither is the supplied headset) but the audio is crisp and good news for casual listeners is that the clearAudio+ option takes care of sound automatiocally
videos are an absolute pleasure to watch and the VPT option makes the viewing experience even more pleasurable
The photo clarity is not the best in class but there are apps (perfectly clear for android eg) which fix the photos and store them in the orignal resolutuion
playing games is an absolute pleausre on the big screen and heavy games like NFS Most wanted run without a hitch on the device.
the 2 GB RAM allows many apps to be open simultaeneously i had NFS Most Wanted running in the foreground with another game paused in the background
the remote control app works as claimed and can also be used for set top boxes of popular DTH/Cable suppliers
the phone though claimed to be thicker than others in the competition does not feel so in the hand even if u hold a thinner phoen say galaxy S3, i wonder waht they have to say about Lumia 920 in terms of those specs
the plastic back also feels solid and good to hold in hand (though certrainly not good to look at) but the baxk can easily be covered by the supplied snap on cover in the box
the camera which is at the bottom works great for landscape calls and is certainly good to use even in potrait
the benchmark scores of this device may place in the 4th or 5th place everywhere but the real life user experience is hardly bothering no nopticeable lags were seen at all
Finally i would just like to say that the phone feels gr8 to hold in the hand and is very ease to use and handle go for it!!!
falesh, 24 Apr 2013Sorry to ask the question i once again saw the review and the SONY logo in Xperia ZL is not in... moresorry about that I have done so much reading and seeing reviews on youtube not sure if sony logo printed on the screen protector or not anymore> i have orderd mine today so excited after long time of thinking
At last the review!!!
I was worried about the call quality but the test shows that its very good..thats nice now i can peacefully get my hands on the device..
Thanks for the review but one thing is till missing the loudspeaker review.
amjadov, 24 Apr 2013Can you explain what is the defferece between restart and reset? Is there any data loss in cas... moreof c0urse theres alot diffrence between reset and restart. Restart means it will turn off your phone and automaticaly turned on (d0nt ask anym0re, thats it).. Reset means that when u reset it ask ur security code then itll shutdown then automatically turned on and all of your phone settings from, ringtones,wallpaper, screensaver etc. Will be set to default set. As u purchase it from the very begining u hold up your phone! Gets?
Would be great if it were a force restart/reboot button since ZL battery is non-removable therefore you can't simply remove battery to fix a freeze so that's where this little yellow button will come in handy.
Pressing little yellow button equals removing battery, that would be nice.
falesh, 24 Apr 2013that button is for reseting the device in case it freezes..reset not restartThanks for the answer but what kind of reset it does? soft reset or hard/factory reset?
I read that for soft reset, you simply press and hold the Power key and the Volume key at the same time for about 7 seconds, that would prompt an automatic restart. For hard/factory reset, you'll have to go to: Settings > Backup and reset > Reset phone > Erase everything, so I'm wondering what kind of reset this little yellow OFF button does.
