I bought Xperia ZL in october 2013. I bought it with Android 4.1.2 Jellybean. Later , i updated it to 4.2.2 and now 4.3. So far i didn't find any of the issues with this phone. Camera is 13 MP.
Clarity is Awesome an more realistic. To be honest, the front camera is a Con i have to say. Clarity is good but it was at the bottom. so if you wanna take pics of urself with the front cam, that's quite embarrassing.
Yes, mobile gets heated up sometimes, i face this one too. So i'll give it some time to cool.
It cools down in a short time.
Battery gets drained very soon. It is because of the HD screen and resolution i think but not sure. What i was doing is i have reduced it's brightness and back light to 30. To prevent the battery from draining fast. You need to turn on the stamina mode and low battery mode. With those two turned on, charging will last long. I charge my phone for every two days. I have seen many people say that it takes several hours to charge the phone. But my phone gets charged very fast. I've never faced the problem.
Since it got 2GB ram and 1.5 Quad core processor. Apps run very smoothly and i've been playing highend games in my mobile ever since the first day i bought it. Never faced any disturrbance in that.
Now that i found that it ha got upgrade to Android kitkat. Waiting for the update.
My Overall Experience with MY ZL is Awesome. I'll Give My Phone 9/10.
why is google not releasing fix for the "media server" and "media" BUG problem which is definitely causing a lot of battery drain?
I try to remove the now the shatter proof on my xperia zl.due to srcathes. And im very surprice. Becoz the sony logo on the top not remove unlike the xperia z.. good news
XperiaUser, 12 Mar 2014well i'm just saying that if the phone is named after the Z series then it should be water res... morewhy can't u read specs before u buy a phone ???
or u dont like to do that ... what kind of lame excuses will u given now ?
XperiaUser, 12 Mar 2014well i'm just saying that if the phone is named after the Z series then it should be water res... moreSony didn't mentioned that all Z series has to be/ will be water dust resistant. And ZL is a variant of the Z, which means that it doesn't necessarily has to inherit the water and dust resistant feature.
This has got to do with marketing and product positioning, which is why Sony decided to release ZR in May 2013.
The key selling point in ZL is the compactness of the phone, its probably the smallest 5 incher phone that you can get on the market (even smaller than the S3 & S4)
ZR is somewhat a mixture of both ZL and Z, lower screen resolution, 4.55 inch screen but it has the water and dust resistant features.
Simply put, the Z series in 2013 (Z,ZL and ZR) offers the users with choice, and they're almost on par in terms of specs wise.
The later release of the Z series (Z1, Z Ultra) offers a more premium phone with high end specs.
On the other hand the Xperia M and C are mid range phones which has lower specs as compared to the Z series to target at specific range of buyers.
Thus, the Z series is not totally about JUST the water and dust proof features, its more on the specs difference as compared to other Xperia series.
This ph. Is discontinued from sony. As I get reply from sony when I asked them by email.
Benjamin, 11 Mar 2014Redundant comment. There's other water and dust resistant phones available if you need one. well i'm just saying that if the phone is named after the Z series then it should be water resistant right?, as ALL Z SERIES phone are water resistant aside from this it can create a misunderstanding and confusion among buyers thinking this is water resistant, it should not be named after the Z series or it should be named Xperia XL or something.
XperiaUser, 11 Mar 2014i felt sad as this is the only Z series phone that is not water resistantRedundant comment. There's other water and dust resistant phones available if you need one.
i felt sad as this is the only Z series phone that is not water resistant

yogesh, 07 Mar 2014i'm going to purchase new mobile till next saturday,
user could u plz tell me, this ZL phone ... moreGo for ZL!
I'm using ZL since October 2013, and my ZL is running 4.3.
I got to say that heating problem exists in 4.2.2 that's true, but 4.3 improves the issue a lot.
When I play game like this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wb.goog.injustice for , the phone only warms up and it's not heating.
Furthermore, ZL is confirmed to be getting 4.4 update, which I highly doubt it that Knight will get any updates though,
And also, the chipset, CPU and GPU is rather old for 2014 standards, or even 2013.
ZL's have a competitive edge over the Knight in this aspect. Zl support SD card slot too.
i'm going to purchase new mobile till next saturday,
user could u plz tell me, this ZL phone not have heating problem.
should i go for xperia ZL or micromax knight? plz suggest
even knight price is 20k only compare to ZL 25k
