Mayurb, 05 Dec 2013What about performance??? Is it laggy?YES. Extremely
Candy, 03 Dec 2013Nexus 5 or this and why??I have both of these. The NEXUS was too. 32 GB for 499.00 no contract. N5 more flexible with apps vs modified for SONY apps = limited selection. Both great phones. Both are fast. N5 has the newer technology. Both phones good for getting updates.
And, oh, the camera is very good in daylight, but don't expect a miracle in low light condition. My three years old N8 can shoot better pictures (N8 has 12MP & ZL has 13MP camera). But the video quality is as good as any present phone camera available. The Radio runner can save upto 20 channels and no matter what GSMARENA says, the clock can save only 20 alarms (it's Android's fault, not ZL's). Again, I've stored more than 50 alarms in my N8. Included software are okay. The phone (like any Android devices) can do some magic if you install the correct software and know how to tweak them. For instance, wheni receive a call, if I take the phone away from my ear, it goes to loudspeaker and goes back to earphone speaker when I bring it back to my ears. If you use these kinda softwares, you'll love Android.
Keep zeal (ZL) -ing...
The IR is situated between the power button and the camera shutter key. Don't expect magic from the battery as it drains pretty fast. I have to charge twice to keep it alive the whole day. I already have some hands on review here. For you help, I'm posting again.
Xperia ZL is a pretty good phone. The phone is the smallest 5 incher available in the market. Doesn't look as pretty as Xperia Z, but the size sure makes up for that. The phone is very durable (dropped it accidentally twice, no damage). Call quality is great, both parties can hear clearly. Speaker sounds quality is good. While the network works perfectly, sometimes the Wi-Fi seems to drop the connection. Bluetooth and other connectivity are good. The IR is being reported to be unsuccessful, but Sony admitted that and are replacing those phones, provided you've got warranty. I've got huge disappointment on the battery, but when you run a full HD screen, the battery will drain fast (they should have gone for stronger battery). The notification light strip gives it a majestic looks. Touch screen is very responsive, no problem at all. All in all, I give it 9 out of 10.
But the design is personal choice. Personally I like square phones (Samsung Galaxy S2, Xperia ZL etc). But done may not like the design. So hardware wise I'm pretty happy with the phone, save for the battery. Hope this opinion helps you to understand the phone better.
Keep the zeal (ZL)...

Well if you want a cam shutter, IR blaster for remote, and compact a 5" smartphone you can choose the ZL.
Nice smartphone... I have no regret for using this phone. It's very good for the speaker and camera.

Hi guys. I am really confused between ZL and Z. Plz suggest me that which one is better among them, performence wise, look wise and by your personal user experience. Thanks. Waiting for the reply from you guys!
First of all this is an awesome smartphone! It works buttery smooth! I'm in love with its design. Its camera works very well at outdoor but it get sucks in low light condition. Everything in this phone is doing its own job perfectly! But I hope it's a bigger capacity of battery. I got my battery's juice finished at 6pm everyday. It's quite disappointed for me.
Overall it's a great smartphone outside now! You will not regret after buying this awesome phone!
