As for battery, I personally think it applies to all.

Dont buy this phone. Only lasting for 2 months before the battery damage. I think its overheating problem cause the damage. The phone is getting very hot when I played online games. And sony service works slow here in indonesia. Its been over a month and my phone still waiting for replacement parts. Good phone with low durability and bad service. Now im going back to samsung.

I've got to say that ZL is the most compact 5 inch phone that you will get. It fits in your hand perfectly, and reduces your hand gymnastics when using the phone.
As for watching movies for 2 hours, I think it shouldn't be a problem. I don't or rarely watch videos at all.
But it shouldn't be a problem at all.
Benjamin, 21 Nov 2013By looking at it, ZL may cost you alot if you're just gonna watch videos/movies with it. ZL co... moreThanks Benjamin for the suggestion. But I still thinks this phone better as I prefer not a very large phone_ I felt 5inch would be just nice for me to watch movie already. As its resolution is high enough plus bravia engine. Only thing I wanted this phone is because its phone size isn't so big. Just nice for me to fit in my pocket
One last question
About battery heating issues
If I watch a movie around 2hour. Will the phone be very hot? If is Normal heating I'm ok. But I'm worry if it heats a long period. Will the battery spoil?
A SHORT REVIEW ON XPERIA™ ZL (again):
Sony Xperia ZL runs on 4.1.2 when bought from store, can be upgraded to 4.2.1 at present and soon will be upgraded to 4.3 in November 2013 and afterwards. Sony also promised to upgrade it to 4.4 (KitKat) soon (maybe 2014).
The screen is awesome, better than many flagship phones around, save for the viewing angle, that is very low. If you want to watch a movie in it with friends, more than three people watching is not a pleasure experience.
The touch screen is very responsive, no lagging our whatsoever.
The keyboard suites me well, but if you don't like it, play store has plenty of them to choose from.
Connectivity is great, no problem at all.
The IR blaster is reported to be flawed in some cases and Sony is replacing the devices with faulty IR blasters. If you buy without warranty, my suggestion is to check it beforehand.
The soaker sound quality is awesome, loud enough to hear music clearly in a medium size room.
The battery is non replaceable and it should have been more than 3000mAH to support this huge screen and powerful processors.
The phone is very light weight (compared to other flagship, well, most of them, if not all).
Call quality is very good, crisp and clear.
NFC, Bluetooth and GPS works like charm.
In built browser is Google chrome, but you can download whatever you like from the play store.
Can run heavy games without any sweat. Try YouTube for details.
Doesn't support flash, not even with custom flash installers.
The supplied headphone is great with good high, mid and low support.
The supplied charger is the one you should use to charge it quickly. If you use charger from another company, it'll charge, but will drain faster.
I personally love the mini apps, which hover over the screen without hampering whatever you're doing. Can download lots of them from play store.
Hope these notes will stop you from asking whether you should but it or not. Read it, then decide whether this is your piece of bread or not. Please rate it if it helped you out you like it. Any other points that I might have missed are most welcome. Ciao.
