Got my ZR and was very happy with it. Unfortunately, got problems with its touchscreen after 3 months of use. Technician told me they usually find this problems with the touchscreen on lower models like Xperia GO etc. Bad luck for me, since i bought it on online seller,Widget City, so no warranty.
Touchscreen was terrible, it were opening all applications without me touching it, and when texting it were typing on its own. Such a mess.
I wont be buying XPeria anymore on my next unit, you cant blame me.
would someone tell me the amp of ZR original chareger cuz i lost mine wanna buy a new one so wanna make sure its original
falesh, 10 Mar 2014dude stop comparing unequal hardwares for those crappy benchmarks those are merely important i... moreI compared because the other guy(anas) said that the SP is better.
I know that they have unequal hardwares.
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2014Do u suggest zr hs good procesor and battery then zlBoth has the same processor but ZR has only half the display of zl (720p vs 1080p), so the performance(especially gaming) and battery will be better in the ZR
yogi, 06 Mar 2014Go for it man...! It is one of the BEST Phone SONY has offered. I owned it since 3months. ... moreIts good option to prefer sony xperia zr but be sure about the wifi,hotspotsharing&bluetooth,fm other than that there is no any problem in zr on buying that mobile please verify twice for that features .....
cmeze, 10 Mar 2014I heard it got issues regarding bluetooth and wifi..is it true? And does it get solved in 4.3 ... moreYes the bluetooth and wifi issues are resolved in 4.3 update. Also RAM has also improved post update.

And ZR is quad core whereas SP is dual core ...that will get your answers for your lower values for SP
I heard it got issues regarding bluetooth and wifi..is it true? And does it get solved in 4.3 update? PLZ tell me..
XperiaSp™, 06 Mar 2014i definitely understand your point there, however i do beleive you have noticed the bugs after... moreDude thats obvious coz Quad is more fluent in multi-taksing. And 1.5 Quad Core is noticeably much faster than 1.7 Dual Core
Bluetooth stops working cannot send or recieve files other phones cannot detect my phone even when bluetooth is in visible position anyone knows how to solve this
Cristie, 08 Mar 2014Hi guys, i'm planning to buy zr but m stuck mostly between zr and zl. Can anyone suggest me w... moreDude if you want future proof gaming and comfortable single handed usage, waterproofing and if you plan to root and install app2sd, go for ZR
If you're more into Internet, videos, showoff, get the zl.
Also if your phone hangs(all smartphones hang at least once in a year as no phone is perfect and if you install custom roms) it'll be a bit of a problem in the zl whereas in ZR you can just remove the battery.
Hi guys, i'm planning to buy zr but m stuck mostly between zr and zl. Can anyone suggest me which one is much better. And also suggest if there are any issues in non removable batteries that is the case wid zl..
Mr. anonymous, 07 Mar 2014Dude I own a ZR and my friend a SP.
SP is shi*ty in multitasking, you open chrome and music t... moreI agree.. ZR is really better, i hope i have bought it instead of my SP. well just have to stick with it until i have enough money to buy ZR.
anyways if SP release the firmware Build number 12.1.A.1.192 a bug fix for 4.3 update i may be happy to stay with SP
Anas, 05 Mar 2014You shouldn't regret too much. I am also an Xperia Sp user :) ... besides 2 gm ram and quad co... moreDude I own a ZR and my friend a SP.
SP is shi*ty in multitasking, you open chrome and music together and what happens? The music stops playing.
And the benchmarks in gsmarena is not always true, they said in antutu, ZR scores around 18000 but when I try each time I get it between 22000-22100(android 4.3)
In t-Rex gsmarena says 32fps but in real life it's giving me 39fps offscreen and 58fps on screen
And epic citadel it's giving 58.6 which is better than sp.
And quadrant, it scores around 9100 in Android 4.3 however in 4.1 it gave around 8500
Whereas my friends SP(ANDROID 4.3)
antutu never crossed 15000
Epic citadel 58.2
Trex offscreen 30fps and onscreen 44fps...
And both has the same ram configuration but ZR has twice the memory.
And processor nowadays all apps are made to use the potential of all 4 cores where the ZR trashes the SP by a very large margin.
Also it has additional features like waterproof, dust proof, 13mp camera premium design when you turn off the screen, you can no where find the difference between the bezel and display whereas sp has a cheap design, even the cheapest China mobile will have those lights and anyway you'll get bored off it in a weak...
The phone was great for 2 weeks until it stopped connecting to wifi... no real fix by sony to this issue so be careful...
shivam, 06 Mar 2014Hey guys help me out
Im thinking of buying this phone
so can you guys tell is it a good phone
... moreGo for it man...!
It is one of the BEST Phone SONY has offered.
I owned it since 3months.
No issue at all.
Anas, 05 Mar 2014You shouldn't regret too much. I am also an Xperia Sp user :) ... besides 2 gm ram and quad co... morei definitely understand your point there, however i do beleive you have noticed the bugs after the 4.3 update the phone became much slower and lags frequently, if not then you are a very lucky man. [ considering all the people in xperia sp comment page a lot of people like me are experiencing it ], anyways i agree that on single core test xperia sp tops the ZR bec it is clocked at a higher speed 1.7GHZ compared to 1.5GHZ but that is only with a small margin. in epic citadel too the difference is not that much. multi threaded performance is much better for multi tasking and switching apps, ZR having quadcore and 2GB of ram will do it smoothly unlike my SP. also i think we will experience less lag on ZR bec of it. also bec of having a slightly better chipset, it tops in quadrant and antutu bench test.
all in all if you gonna look on overall performance and specs, you will see clearly xperia ZR is better. better ram, slower but more cores to avoid lags on switching apps. SLIGHTLY newer chipset. camera resolution is better bec of 13mp. waterproof. ideally i think ZR will be run smoother than SP. -unless of course IF sp release the new firmware build update to fix the bugs i will say otherwise. [ no official annoucment yet though ]
