Personally Own ZL,
I Liked everything about this phone, its been 7 months, bought it on release, Its better than Z in two ways thats compactness and its IR function, However i have had problem in IR Reading function being not working.
Camera is pretty good with manual settings, better than S4 in many ways, however fails to take macros not good as S4.Personally tested.
Update to 4.4 is confirmed by sony
If you are confused about ZL and Z, I would suggest ZL wich costs less than Z around 5K. however you wont get most of the premium services that Z gets like many Paid games, movies, other offers.
Premium feel and service go for Z. Water proof is rather gimmick as many people complained that because of heating issues back cover of Z gets loosened up and loses its water resistant ability.
Doesnt Lag in anything,
However problems that are reported a lot are mic,ear Piece, CAmera Black Spots, dead Pixels(Both in Z & ZL), Only In ZL-IR Blaster reading function,Only in Z- Cracking of Glass in Z, Recent reports says that sony is replacing such devices,
Mine under repair for Mic and IR blaster (some Say that there is no fix for IR blaster problem) Might get a proper replacement.

FOr heating issue I rather prefered this Sony Xperia ZL for normal heating issue unlike SGS4 who heat up more than a normal heating. Always lagging and it takes time to cool down unlike SXZL it runs normal. All Smartphone with big processor have heating issue but it is normal because of their processor.
Anup S, 05 Nov 2013Buy S4 if you can afford the extra cost. S4 is far superior than ZL in almost all aspects.That would be true if S4 had Sony UI. Also, S4 is not superior, it's just different. Both are same tier -.-
