I've been using Xperia ZL for last two days. I updated it to version 4.2 right after buying it, so I can't actually tell you the differences. But I can say that I'm loving the phone. Yes, the battery is not as good as my wife's Xperia SP, but hey, this phone is illuminating a full HD screen and has a quad core inside. The touch response is excellent, way better than Xperia SP, the games are running awesome, sound quality is superb, all in all I'm loving it. Yes, the battery is still draining fast as I'm continuously connected to internet using 3G connection, but that's normal. The keyboard is very good (I've used Samsung galaxy S2 and ZL is better than S2). I've tried to use the IR blaster, but it didn't work. The notification light looks awesome in my black ZL, gives it a great personality. Except for battery, I've got no complains. I'm not sure about the complains of the touch response as I'm now Swype-ing while my phone is charging - no problem at all. On the other hand, the SP of my wife need to be restarted once a day to get rid of the touch response problem. The display takes all the charge, so be careful when you play for a long time. Abs yes, when I play heavy games like real racing 3 or heavy gunner, the phone warms up a bit, but not too much to hold. Overall, I'll give it 9 out of 10. Take care all. Ciao.
Piccolo, 09 Oct 2013Yes I have the 3G n 4G line here.. In between 2-3 minutes the battery decrease 1-2%..Yea, so its always better to bring the usb cable around just in case its battery is running low.
GONU, 09 Oct 2013Does Sony Xperia ZL hangs like Galaxy S Duos or other Samsung phones ?
Does Games like Temp... moreHi Gonu! I have not installed any of the games you've mentioned. But gaming on the ZL is surely a great pleasure. I've recently bought my ZL and the gaming works brilliantly. I've played FIFA14, Despicable Me Minions Run, Real Racing Candy Crush, BMX Boy, Dr.Driving and everything's working fine.
And Galaxy S Duos is certainly not a good phone to compare with to the ZL as the ZL is way better in specs and design as compared to the Galaxy S Duos. Hope that helps! Cheers!

i'm quite curious about the information given.why the 3G talk time is more than the 2G talk time? (although this is not very important) >.<
how long can this phone stand? (i mean for average)
i like this phone quite much, but i quite worry about the battery performance. :(
Does Sony Xperia ZL hangs like Galaxy S Duos or other Samsung phones ?
Does Games like Temple Run 2,Subway Surfers,Alphalt Heat is working perfectly on Sony Xperia ZL without lags ?

I'm actually fine with the UI.
But the battery life really isn't that great. My phone doesn't have 3G/data and its already draining so fast. What's more yours have 3G/data. Just to conclude, the battery isn't that great for the ZL though

There's no way that you can disable it. When swiping to the right you will have instant access to the camera, while swiping to the left allows you to have access to the app widgets that you've added.
I'm not sure if it's due to the update, but I would say the battery itself isn't that fantastic. I'm on 4.2.2, and the battery left drops from 97% to 85% just about 4 hours.
