Remember dont compare Sony Smartphone to other Mobile Brand because each brand have their own unique features, and own program. Even they are both running on the same Android OS it doesn't mean they're all the same even in program.

icYpH, 08 Oct 2013hi guys, i m really confused why should i buy xperia Zl over xperia Zr

i ... moreHi mate! I would recommend you to go for ZL. First of all, ZR and ZL are almost the same price, maybe a little difference of less than 50 bucks, depending on where you're buying it from.
Secondly, do you need a waterproof phone? If that's the first and foremost factor that you're considering, then ZR will be the choice.
Thirdly, in terms of specs wise, they might be similar. But the ZL has a full HD screen as compared to the ZR, which only has a 720p quality and a lower pixel density.
Thirdly, I've researched and source for all reviews related to these Xperia phones. ZL performed better than the ZR in most benchmarks, on par with the Z.
So lastly, since you're already considering between this two ZL and ZR, I assume that budget isn't really a big problem to you. As I've mentioned, the ZL will have a bigger built, bigger screen, better specs and better screen display. Furthermore, the price range is so close between these 2 device. So why not go for the Xperia ZL? Hence, I strongly recommend you to go for the ZL. I personally owns a ZL for less than a week, all I can tell you so far is that I'm loving the ZL and I'm pretty sure you won't regret buying the ZL.
Hope that helps! Cheers!

I unplugged my phone from the charger at 1 am in the morning. Put it in stamina mode till i woke up. Woke up with 97% of battery. Now I'm at work, left with 32% of battery life with the screen brightness set to the minimum for the whole day. Played a few games of FIFA14, candy crush and real racing. View instagram like 3 times so far. Some random web browsing for less than 15 minutes. And now it's already 15:45 here in Singapore, left with 32%. On and off the wi-fi when i need. My phone doesn't have data/3G network.
So yea, that's roughly my daily usage of my ZL so far. But all I can say is that 4.2.2 doesn't really make any difference, it's just the battery life itself isn't that great! Hop that helps! Have a great day ahead!
I am wondering if Zl after update to 4.2 has the same interface as in Z1 incluing new wallpaper,new lockscreen new settings , scrolling in lockscreen and to add different things to toolbar of wifi and bluetooth.i like z1 interface but dont like old ZL interface it reminds me with acro s, Does Zl got the new user interface in Z1, if any could send video link showing that would be great
hi guys, i m really confused why should i buy xperia Zl over xperia Zr

Benjamin, 07 Oct 2013Thanks for the reply mate!
I do not have any ps3 controllers though.
By the way what's the... morelink is not broken, the app seems to be region blocked now, the emulator name is
"retroarch", that as a single word, you can search it as "retroarch android" using google and the first result will be the google play store, but it has been blocked in several regions, i have no idea why
this is the official page:
you can use the googleplay link there to install it directly with your phone, if the link doesn't work, then it has been blocked in your region; either-way you can download it from the official page
given the beauty of android
you can start using another store to get your region locked apps:
however as always do be careful on what you install on your phone
hope this helps

I've just gotten my ZL for a few days, and I've also updated it from 4.1.2 to 4.2.2
Personally, I don't see much difference. Except for the lockscreen UI, status bar UI etc. And also, the update will install some apps that are user removable.
can anybody who have updated their xperia zl c6502 jellybean 4.1.2 version to 4.2.2 (10.3.1.A.2.67) leave any comment here?what are the good and bad things bout that updates, what are the pro and cons,what does it really did to your phone?some said that it is good and some said that it is better to leave it stock.It is confusing,as i'm thinking of to upgrade mine.need ur opinion people,thanks in advance.
