Got my zr from expertinfo tech in New Zealand. Best phone I've ever had. Coming from Galaxy S2, Galaxy S3 and a Nexus 4 and having used the Xperia V this is by far the best. Low light camera shots are average but once you get some day light it looks glorious. Battery life is amazing. I have C5503 and have never experienced Wifi problems or water proofing problems. Sony UI is much better in my opinion to Samsung looks nice and simple in a similar way to Apple and is buttery smooth. Screen may have slight viewing angle problems but it's nothing to cry about. Display colours are very natural I prefer it to the nexus 4 and amoled screens. Phone is real comfortable in the hand compared to the nexus 4 and the build quality is amazing. Looks far more attractive than anything Samsung has released though my S2 was boss for its time. VGA front camera isn't a problem its actually better than what you think the specs would count and other than Skype I hardly ever use it. 8GB is just enough for me but may not be for others. Recommend getting micro sd card. This is one of my best purchases that leaves my nexus 4 to the side. Haven't tried LTE yet as my carrier doesn't support it yet.
Go ahead and buy ZR guys, but remember you were warned. Getting this lemon instead of Z will be the ultimate mistake.
Hai! Gsm arena i'am big fan of you. I'am egerly waiting for your review of sony xperia zr . Great smartphone.
Hi gsmarena, I'm STILL waiting for your review of the Xperia ZR. I won't buy it till I've read your review, because I have long trusted/depended on you guys for the most accurate info/reviews.

Is 8GB internal storage sufficient for high gamming and apps storage..?
Hi. Im looking sony xperia and i need some help. Actually i like xperia sp and after i read zr spec i more like zr. But now im really like both. So ladies n gentlemen, could you please help me which 1 is better? Sp or Zr?
Guys, i just bought xperia last 1 week.when im doing calling about 5 min and play fb, my phone display will get hot.this will make me uneasy.is it this matters same goes to yours?any opinion?
i got this phone for 30k and it is a sheer waste of my money since sony does not cover in its warranty any liquid damage to its "water resistant" overrated shitty phone.the phone isn't even water resistant and if u try clicking pics in the rain the phone stops working and you'd have to pay from your pocket for the damages....as if wasting the 30k wasn't enough for it *disappointed*
Nothing is wrong. Calm down. There is a waterproof layer that protects your phone from water. Layer will evaporate after some time next time the speaker contacts water again another layer forms and evaporates later. In fact I am now typing this while showering with my xperia z.
plz anyone tell me that after putting cell in water their volume get low!!
is it happened with every zr phone???
