I bought the xperia ZR last week. Design is really cool and it was my fist android phone. As of TFT display battery backup is average but better than Z and ZL. Root could enhance the backup. Font camera is VGA but not too bad. Though it is IP58 certified - dust and water proof and can shoot photo and video in the water, it will be unwise to dip your phone in water. the back side, headphone and usb port becomes loose and cause your phone damaged by water. actually i did not liked the 4.6 inches display, 5.00 inches would have been better. The biggest problem is the internal memory only 4.00 Gb available. On the thing is great that picture and video quality is better than xperia Z and xperia ZR heats not too much. If you play GH game then it will heat not to the great extent. In conclusion i will tell you to buy xperia Z. If you want to buy than please be sure if it is C5503 because it is LTE version. Do not Buy C5502 (3g version)
100rabh, 17 Nov 2013is it true zr Bluetooth stops working after some time? yes bluetooth is a biggest problem in Xperia ZR

The scratch guard got wasted but and the paint on all 4 sides came out but that's not visible until you look closely...
Anyways I replaced that phone for having backlighting issues. :)
Xperia ZR comes with a very Fragile Screen which is not Repairable. If you keep your phone in Jeans or use it for normal every day use the screen cracks. Mine cracked within 2 months of Purchase. Sony repair centre dont cover it under warranty and ask you to pay 15,000 for replacement of the phone as it is not repairable.
Dont pay so much for a fragile phone.

CHILL guys..for real..We share same hardware with the Z and we will take 4.4 for sure..it will be later next year,thats all please stop with that ^^ thanks.
I wanna slap the CEO of Sony after hearing that the 4.4 update for ZR is under consideration... Even SP will get 4.4 which is dual core... :'(
RatedR, 22 Nov 2013Android Kitkat 4.4 Under investigation for Xperia ZR , do you think we will get it ?hope YES - 1.5GHz quad-core and gret graphics (some say even better than xperia Z) so I think definetly YES!
RatedR, 22 Nov 2013Android Kitkat 4.4 Under investigation for Xperia ZR , do you think we will get it ?I dont know what the hell is going with ZR. SP users got what they wanted but ZR is in pending. Isn't it surprising that the mid range phone SP got earlier than that of ZR. I am sad since I heard the news. I want to throw my phone.
