Cali, 11 Jan 2013It is not water resistant like the Z according "Body Specs"
The Xperia active with plastic material body and removable back cover got IP67 rating higher than Xperia Z.
Ajmal Basheer, 11 Jan 2013Hi, I notice the ZL has all features like the Z and supports upto 64 GB of microSD card. Bu... moreThe difference between the Z & the ZL besides the design & materials is that the Z is water & dust proof & it's front-facing camera can record in 1080p.
why only xz is flagship set for sony i dont know .zl is having micro sd card expandable upto 64 gb and size is shorter thn x z but the same display size 5" and having camera button . rest is same nothing differ,xz is only slimer thn xzl and water and dust prove thats not a big feature i think thats useless . i think those guy who use this much of big price and high end smart phone they are chanceless to go in dusty area. If price launch is same thn I will prefer xzl. Im waiting for a extraordinary camera phone for since last 6 month .
The main dif betwn Z and Zl is tht ZL doesnot have water resistant feature and also ZL doesnt have that unique glass back, instead of which ZL have high quality plastic back panel.
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2013Some says it's available in smart plan.Smart is taking preorders for XpV, free starting at Plan LTE 1500.
Xperia TX is currently sold through unofficial channels, you an buy it some places but it does not come from Sony Philippines, ie you get only a store warranty but that should not be a big problem, and the price will be lower as well. You can get the TX for 21,600 in TriNoma mall in QC, metro manila, its very near SM North Edsa.
Ajmal Basheer, 11 Jan 2013Hi, I notice the ZL has all features like the Z and supports upto 64 GB of microSD card. Bu... morethe Xperia Z is water proof, Dust resistant. which the ZL isn't.. And the design for the two phones are not the same. The Zl is more compact and the materials used are more cheapish.
I notice the ZL has all features like the Z and supports upto 64 GB of microSD card. But why is Z considered as the flagship phone? Also, I would like to know what feature does the ZL does not have which is there in Z?
It seems the white ZL does not have a patterned back casing as the black one.
iBoss, 11 Jan 2013i don't know why it appears that they both has the same camera features when u visit the main ... moreZL does have HDR, here's the link under camera features:
Anonymous, 11 Jan 2013Is ZL's back arched like the TXs? thanksBack looks almost the same but its not arched
Lyricist, 10 Jan 2013doesn't the zl have hdr just like the z?It does
Lyricist, 10 Jan 2013doesn't the zl have hdr just like the z?i don't know why it appears that they both has the same camera features when u visit the main site of Sony in the over view specs , but then in the full specs overview it seems that only the Z has the HDR, 2mp 1080p front camera...etc
here are the link for both and may compare them separately :)
well at first the ZL fascinated me more but its kinda disappointing the lack of the same camera features that the Xperia Z has. so now i like more the Z, and plus, it has the IP57 certification which is an advance compare it to the ZL that doesn't have this feature.
anyway, good luck in your choice ;)
It should be chipset Snapdragon APQ8064 instead of Snapdragon MSM8064.
