Just updated to 4.4.4 and things got a better. Battery now lasts longer compared to the 4.4.2. 30%-40% better. Settings lag is gone. Apps load faster. Enjoy your update guys!
My zl was just 6 months old..when it got all f****d up, after 20 days of trying to fix the mothe board the service centre people got fed up and they called me today to say they will give me a Brand New Black Xperia Z within 7 working days :D
Love it! It's amazing, and also my 1st smartphone. I spent a lot of time researching the best fit for me features and price wise and I'm very happy with it. Isn't it funny though how when you get a new phone, you spend a lot of time looking for apps that will make it do what your old phone did? All part of the fun, I guess.
i made the worst decision. iphone 5 at that time vs experia zl. i selected experial zl over iphone. but then in less than a year my experia had so many problems. battery, freezing and many more its a nightmare. ever purchased extended warranty. the service station took 2 months for diagnosis plus they let me pay for the battery.
best phone till now because i have not updated to kitkat. 8 months and still running smooth. 4.3 jellybean. please tell me about 4.4.4

You sure have cash to burn, also i dont understand why people ... moreHello Anonymous

People who are facing issues with phone are posting here because this space is called " the comments section" where people are supposed to share there experience.
And who told you we are posting here instead of going to service center? We are posting after submitting the phone in service center.
AnonD-299142, 27 Aug 2014Sounds like my Grandma when She was angry :D
and yeah GOOD Story Telling
just Show your warr... moreDude
Your brain is dead for sure :P. I has the warranty card and shit but the service center people insisted on the Sony Centre Invoice with IMEI.
However here is some interesting update:
They called be after 10 dayand say the mother board is gone and it will take 4 days to get a new one. Then after 10 more days(which is today), I called them up to ask if they had fixed my phone.
The girl said we will call you back tomorrow. I insisted them to give me an update right then, the girl kept me on hold for 10 minutes and then said you will get a Xperia Z and Sony will call me tomorrow regarding this.
I just hope they dont ask me for extra money. I already bought this ZL on my credit card and am still paying my dues while the phone is sitting in a service center and I am using my nokia 1100.
Lets see what happens tomorrow.Till then Peace!!
Worst Experience by using no 1 branded mobile of SONY Xperia ZL
3 weeks prior started facing problem with handset Having mike problem. Not even completed a year its under warranty. so called No 1 company could not even repair it till date... now offering refurbished handset without any fault of mine.
Have sent the mails to sony also but no reply... service center is useless
Can any1 assist in this manner??
I've been having KitKat concerns like everyone else. The phone simply isn't as smooth, especially in the text messaging service.
We're on a family plan with unlimited text, but the delay in first launching the ZL's native Messaging service, opening an existing thread, waiting to be able to type, and then waiting for the message to send, is just horrid.
My wife's Moto X is instant in all of the above. What about the 4.4 update caused SMS to crawl?
Disappointed n frustrated using Xperia ZL. Battery drained extremely fast, camera turn on by itself n snapping photo, alarm can't turn off until delete the alarm, can't play fb video.
for all people complaining about the battery life.
JUST MAKE SURE YOUR SD CARD IS NOT CORRUPTED
mine had this issue and it gone away one i removed my SD card my mobile now is almost 12 month old and i am on Kitkat 4.4.2 but i must say the mobile is faster on 4.3.
battery performance is much better on KITKAT.
I have a problem.Whenever I receive a message (normal sms), my phone will just on its screen automatically. Since I use swipe screen lock, it's very easily to be unlocked in my pocket.Usually I found this happen when I could feel the heat from my phone. When I took it out, I had 'turned on' a lot a lot of apps.
Why this happen after my update? I did do a factory reset after the update also.
Help me please. Thanks
There are some problems in sony mobiles like... The camera has got some black spots, microphone problem when you are talking in call people on the other end can't hear you, heating problem the gets heated up soon, charge doesn't last long,.. And one more it creates some blur photos from itself to the album
Pradeep, 31 Aug 2014any 1 can tell me how is the performance of the mobile Sony Xperia Z(waterproof) mobile On Android 4.3 it was good,now on 4.4.2 it`s OK,but my phone is rooted and greenify app is installed on it,because after latest update battery life went down... Now I wait for 4.4.4(it`s in testing phase) and I hope that battery drain and some lags will be fixed.Battery still last the whole day if you are a normal user,but if you play a lot of hevy games, then you can expect about 2.5h-3h of screen-on time
