I have been using this phone for 2 months now & i would say its a fantastic phone.We can say its Best of Sony, both in terms of performance as well as value for money.
1)Build quality is good,you get a premium feel when you hold the device in your hand.
2)Performance wise its just too good ,no lags as i have played quite a few High end games and it performs to the expectation.
3)Call Volume is also good,Music sound played on handsfree is also not that bad.
4)User interface is awsome and userfriendly.
Camera quality is also good but depends on what settings you do.However images in the dark are not that good and front camera is one major drawback for this phone as it is just 1 MP.
5)This is for all those people saying this phone is not water proof- I have used the phone under water ,used it under the shower and have faced no problem,the phone works very well before and after usiage under water.Only thing is you will find some water drops on the back side when you open the panel ,but that is fine it does not hamper the performance .
6)Internal Memory of 8 GB (4.5 for user) is ok ,but it is sufficient .
7)Sony service is very good,I had problem of Wifi & bluetooth and they got the device replaced.
In all just a marvellous phone from Sony

Guys need help. I was just trying the my xperia application and accidentally I have locked my device and now my device doesn't takes the password which I had set earlier. Any suggestions? Please be quick to answer
I had used ZR for 5 yrs now, and its still working..with its 10GB RAM and dual Quad core 3.5 CPU, this is the best phone ever!
I just got it yesterday love it so much but only two points disappointed me :
1-bad front camera (not accepted because several cheaper choices for mid range devices provides higher quality ex.Samsung gs4 mini)
2-a little bit quieter sound than expected from Sony especially with walkman player (accepted in general)
