To all those die hard Sony fans on this page, I say, if you must feel proud about what the brand represents, read Akio Morita's (founder of Sony) "Made in Japan". Having done that, carefully read the Xperia box till you find the "Made in China"!!! Now you will know why there are so many posts denouncing this flagship product (Xperia Z or ZR)!!! Seriously, Sony has not even bothered to come up with a plausible explanation to launching a high-end smartphone with such basic glitches. Speaks volumes about their "commitment" towards quality!!! WiFi still DOES NOT WORK :-)
Was really impressed with the ZR (C5502) specs!! Bot it!! Used it. Disappointed! Beats me how Sony can get something as basic and rudimentary as WiFi messed up!! Took the phone to the Sony Authorized service center in Kolkata. Initially they appeared confident. After wasting 45 minutes of my time they said "we don't know what the problem is"!!! Beat that guys!! My one regret is that I did not try a WiFi login on the Sony showroom display set BEFORE buying the phone. Tried one yesterday in E-Mall; same shit "Authentication Problem". Guys, did you know that the ZR also DOES NOT support "speed dial" i.e. one touch dialing!!!
Siddhu, 26 Jul 2013Hey guys, I m seriously thinking of buying this phone. But can anyone tell me if call qualit... moreyes u can dere are two modes in this fone so u can hear only the person's voice speaking to u regardless wats happening in his/her background.
Honestly i feel this phone is awesome but in comparison with the Xperia z as regards to price difference. I would honestly suggest one should just endure the price difference and go for the XZ, this phone seems pretty ideal for women tho....its cute and seems like the feminine version of XZ but it doesnt bring the pride and satisfaction XZ brings ..Just saying :)
Hey guys, I m seriously thinking of buying this phone.
But can anyone tell me if call quality good? I work in a marketing firm & spend most part of the day travelling.
Can i hear clear sound of caller even when i am travelling?
AnonD-118925, 25 Jul 2013Sony doesn't use Corning gorilla glass.Sony uses Dragontrail glass which is better (: or at le... morePlease show your source. Where does it say that Sony Xperia Z, ZL, ZR phones have Dragontail glass? I could not find any reference to that.
Sony isn't that stupid to claim their phone as a waterproof phone with IP58 certified if it is broken just because of the rain.
maybe the users are just careless. or..can not prove it?
Finally!!!!!!! The review is coming next week............can't wait.........
Xperia ZR, atleast at present, is best mid range phone as reviewed by many sites. This phone costs Rs.26249. At this price range, no other company provides a phone with such features. Just try and compare prices with this price.
Yes, we support sony. Because it gave a high quality handset like ZR to us. U say it is not Waterproof. It is WATERPROOF only when all flaps are covered and SEALED PROPERLY. Not like some guys who simply be careless and blame the company for the loss. Before using the phone, try to read the manual first. It tells us what waterproof means. Then use the phone taking proper care. I m definitely sure that there is something the complainers are hiding. It is somewhere their neglicience that led to the fault.
good news...review is coming next week...

They made one good phone, then they fell back to their half conscious state again, creating this follow-up to the V failure, making all the same mistakes once more: vga frontcam, unsuitable back cover, very low internal storage.
Just bought the phone 1 day ago for my GF as it just hit our stores in limited quantities.it is a wonderfull phone and everything works smooth and fast.
The only small problem for now, if I may call it so, compare to the XP Z, while watching a stored video and turn the phone, the sound will stop, the video will stop as well until the image is resized for 1-2 seconds.While on XP Z the sound continue and you get the next image, on ZR the movie is rewinded 1-2 seconds.
Else, it feels great, just like my XP Z.Lacks glass on the back but I never see it anyway due to the TPU gel case.
I reccomend it to anyone in doubts, tho is early to say it behaves perfectly.
[deleted post]If you really support Sony so much? Then why dont you replace my handset. Please courier a new one to my address.
