Geeky, 13 Apr 2014Ty, so you suggest me this phone or SIII or Grand 2 I'd suggest ZR over the other 2 if gaming is your priority as ZR's cpu and gpu is much powerful than the grand 2 or s3. For example T-Rex onscreen 2.7 HD I get 23fps(android 4.3) comparable to note 3 which gives 26fps whereas s3 gives 7fps.
But if you're more into video watching, music etc. I suggest you the grand 2 or s3 depending on what you want(large screen or amoled).
ZR for power and looks and compactness.
S3 for its amoled screen.
Grand 2 for large screen size.
If I were you I would get the ZR.
Also consider Xperia T2 ULTRA. It has a very big screen but an inferior chipset compared to zr but better than grand 2.
Geeky, 13 Apr 2014Ty, so you suggest me this phone or SIII or Grand 2 I'd suggest zr, cuz s3 doesn't have good battery back up and heats a lot and grand 2 is less in lot of areas compared to zr with specs..
Geeky, 13 Apr 2014Will it have KitKat update soon btw. pls replay whts Full HD games you tried with this XZR (: ... moreSony planned to release kitkat in q2 this year for the Z/ZL/ZR.
and all games resize to hd resolution because it has a hd screen.
Gpu demanding games I tried: GTA SA, NFS most wanted, gt racing 2, asphalt 8, NFS shift, dead trigger, dead trigger 2, shadow gun: deadzone, modern combat 4.
All the games even if the playstore says incompatible(like gta San andreas) you can download and install from the Web and they'll run smoothly cause zr has one of the best on-screen graphical power.
Also note that the phone has only 4.6gb internal memory so you cannot enjoy all games at once, you have to Uninstall one to install another or you have to root.
Will it have KitKat update soon btw. pls replay whts Full HD games you tried with this XZR (: planning to buy dis

HVS, 13 Apr 2014I agree to what you say, but I'm facing issue with the bluetooth. Don't know what to do.

If you live in India(chennai) Accel Frontline service center is the official service centers for Sony. I got mine replaced in the first week for dropping my phone and having some display problems. Still can't beleive they replaced for free
Mr. anonymous, 12 Apr 2014Dude I'm using a Sony wireless bluetooth headset since I bought this phone and I have no issue... moreI agree to what you say, but I'm facing issue with the bluetooth. Don't know what to do.
Formatting seems to be an option.
SO far I've not be able to use NFC successfully. May be I'm doin something wrong.
I gotta give it another try.
ALso the bluetooth headset thing startted to work normal.
Although I noticed that as sson as I take the bluetooth window off. Any phone connected to it gets discconnected.
Kinda weird. Any solution you may have for this ?
Please don't buy this phone...it's speaker volume is very very low...you can't hear the voice while speaking..it's receiver volume is also very low...In service centre they are telling that speaker volume will be low only because of water proof..Pl don't buy this phone..WASTE OF MONEY
neither hang nothing problem some time when i see video it produces HEAT
but it happens
any way this phone is best
SinthanaDevi, 03 Apr 2014Dont ever go for Sony Phones. If you have problem, the customer service will never help you. M... moreR u a fool..!! I hope you have a warranty of 1 year then why wl sny centre wl charge mny 4 it!
Anonymous, 11 Apr 2014Dear Xperia ZR users, I am split between Nokia 925 and Sony Xperia ZR. Please help me here. He... moreFrom your needs I would say don't go for the ZR. Because you need sound built quality but the ZR's speaker volume is low and full of treble, no bass.
Secondly you said you want offline maps.
In Android, to my knowledge I don't know any app with offline navigation and stuff, you could only cache certain places and even to do that your internal memory is restricted to 4.59GB.
And lumia 720 battery is quite better than Xperia ZR but even ZR lasts more than a day.
Camera Daylight yea it's a beast but at night the lumia 720 outperforms ZR.
I recommend ZR for people looking for a compact flagship grade(zero lag) experience, a beautiful, gaming(better than s4, Xperia Z as it has only HD screen and same gpu) phone and multitasking.
HVS, 12 Apr 2014People who have so far been saying no problem with bluetooth.

And I remember a guy in Sony center showing me how the nfc works using my phone. He paired my phone with a portable speaker and it connected. I also seems files to my friends using bluetooth. I have no issues regarding bluetooth but yeah a few people say that they have the Bluetooth problem.
People who have so far been saying no problem with bluetooth.
I'd suggest you to use Bluetooth headset to test it.
It will connected for a moment then when you close the window. iT will disconnect.
Secondly use NFC as it also requires bluetooth for initial pairing. It will aso get disconnected.
I now believe it's bluetooth has issues.
Although not much of a use, but if I want to I can't that makes me feel bad :'(
