bannu, 14 Aug 2013Hi,
I have purchased the phone yesterday and just I went out into the rain to take some snaps... moreHi bannu...
water may enter into the back cover. But please make sure whether it is entering the battery region. The battery region will be covered by a air tight rubber which will not allow water to come inside the battery. If you find water in rest of the areas other than battery. Because the phone is completely sealed. As far I know if water didn't enter into batter region nothing will happen. But if entered you cant even claim the warranty. Please make sure.
Call volume is very very low in this mobile. Even xperia L call volume is pretty good compared to this mobile. I prefer not to buy this mobile.
What is the main purpose of buying a phone?
To Play games? no
To take picture through camera? no
The main purpose is to call. And to listen to the conversation of the another person speaking from the other side. In noisy environment you cannot hear the other persons conversation at all. Very very low call volume. I found in certain websites that the mobile itself is producing very low call volume.
I am really very frustrated. Buying a 30k mobile and I am unable to speak through phone. Waste of buying this phone.
Seriously guys you too will get frustrated.
If there is any way to increase the call volume please let me know...

bannu, 14 Aug 2013Hi, I have purchased the phone yesterday and just I went out into the rain to take some snaps... moreYup.. Water get in through the flash hole.. But it did not enter the sealed part(battery).. Just be carefull when u remove ur back cover to avoid the water get into the sensitive part(battery). This phone is still waterproof.. Except that small problem
AnonD-122366, 16 Aug 2013man xperia u has only 4 gb available..jst check it..and no memcard! So wat u think nw?Dont worry, i have an Xperia U right here. I know it has 6 GB, just check it.
Dont give advices when you are the one who need them.
AnonD-122366, 16 Aug 2013man xperia u has only 4 gb available..jst check it..and no memcard! So wat u think nw?Xperia U has around 6 GB total available. The 4GB you are talking about is the one for user storage, in addition there is around 2GB available for installing apps and games. Yes thats only 2GB but on the Xperia U you can move apps to the user storage, something you cant do on ZR.
Xperia ZR or Xperia SP Which is better ? Good Battery life , sound quality , net browsing experience and no lagging are my requirements.
Phone is very good but price amount is very high so i purchased canvas 2 hd i just a perfect phone for me

Some things Sony must do to gain market share.
Sony is providing best hardware with great innovations like waterproofing, pencil support, Triluminos Display, etc. Still it must move fast in innovating. For example, Sony must try to make use of Sensors like Samsung. Samsung is slightly overusing them but atleast features like Smart Stay and Air Gestures must be present in Sony. I dont say to blind copy Samsung but Sony must provide it adding its own innovation or ease of use. And Sony must do it fast inventing some thing or other. For example, Sony must improve in Loudspeaker Sound, Camera, HD Secondary Camera, More internal storage, Sensors, etc.
Sony UI is great but still not as great as Samsung. It must have more customisation options like folders in app drawer, smart stay, multi screen, etc.
If Sony comes in innovating things faster than others, no one can stop Sony.

Many ZR and V users are complaining about water damage. Do not trust these phones to withstand more than a splash. Buy Xperia Z and install Aqua Z Camera to take underwater photos using the volume rocker or proximity sensor.
And guys, dont be confused with 8 and 16 GB, its the available space that counts. Z and ZL gives you 3 times more available storage. Three times.
AnonD-122366, 13 Aug 2013u say xperia u gives more than xperia zr? I say u r nuts... Xperia u is nthng in frnt of xzr .... moreBut I agree with him. It's true. Xperia U has around 6 GB available storage for apps and games, trysts a lit more than ZR, and Xperia U is a low midrange. That's simply stating facts.
