[deleted post]You're welcome mate!
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.

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.

AnonD-194162, 08 Oct 2013hi guys, i m really confused why should i buy xperia Zl over xperia Zr
helo me out buddy
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
