Flashed the custom ROM LineageOS on this phone in order to get regular security updates. It performs well on this phone--super fast. I like that there are four maintainers of the OS for this particular phone, meaning that Lineage support for this phone is unlikely to disappear any time soon. I love it! I like that the battery is user-serviceable and I feel like I got a good deal for a high quality phone and I like that it comes in pink color to express my girly nature.

njirr, 27 Dec 2016i bought this phone early desember 2016 and upgrade to lolipop, what amazing, i'am impressed!!!!!How did you upgrade to lolipop
Just bought Japanese Docomo version of ZR, shipped with 8GB by seller (or Japan) and now flash it to generic (JB, KitKat or Lolipop = Both have tried) and got 32GB use Flashtool after restoring into original Docomo First (dont forget to uncheck Partition, during flashing into J/K/L)..... UMTS/HSPA+ quite fast, some 4G Operator use different band of Japanese Frequency.. I can accept that. As long I have great small (size) phone with reasonable price. I was used Z1 and Z2 Compact 2 years ago..

I had this phone since December 2013. I must say, it helped me a lot in my this. One of the best Sony Xperia phones I had. Wishing it would still work for 2 years or more before buying a the Xperia XZ
I use this phone since November 2016 (docomo version). It's pretty great one. Unfortunately I can get any 4g service. And it's bootloader can't be unlocked.

Arun, 10 Jul 2016Xperia Zr ear speaker is not working properly ..... sometimes it is getting mute and becoming... moreCurrently using Android 5.1.1 on xperia zr, but there is some problem with speaker and earphone. As not able to hear sometimes on call and even some times speaker does not work while music player is on... But finally i got application called "sound magic" from appstore and by this my phone is again working fine... So if anyone is facing any problem with earphone or speaker than try soundmagic app before going to repair shop...
