this handset is the biggest farce ever.
i've had this handset for under 3 weeks.
happened to use it in the rains for under 10 minutes (with ports and panels closed) water went inside the display, sensors, cameras (front and back).
sony refuses to get back to me, let alone offer a replacement.
this handset is either defective (d.o.a.) or the model itself is not water-proof as claimed by sony.
i heard sony had horrible after sales service. but this is ridiculous
avoid at all costs
someone shud plss giv a review on the wifi strength & connectivity of this device as well as the in built speakers and also front VGA camera experience
AnonD-156042, 22 Jul 2013My friend, it pretty much awesome, when you will make call, the voice is loud and clear like c... moreActually, the in-call volume is probably the only negative point for me about this phone. It just isn't loud enough. You can hear, but you cannot hear very well if the traffic is very noisy.
AnonD-147935, 24 Jul 2013Just ans me 1 qu. why we need to drown ZR in water forcefully? Sony r making water resistance ... moreYes, it does, in this case. This phone is specifically advertised by Sony as a phone which can make photos and film underwater. watch all the commercials about this phone. They all involve underwater photography. This is much more than just keeping it in the rain.
AnonD-49409, 19 May 2013Friends don't complain about 8gb internal and VGA front can and thicker at 10.1mm.it is made t... moregood comment....
peoples want send 28000/- to 30000/- and want all features like Z, HTC One, S4.
practically it is not possible but peoples don't understand that...
and thy are comments TFT screen .. come-on sony... ETC....
I am already using this phone from last 1 month i think the phone is brilliant battery backup is good.. screen is great and i dont have any concerns about viewing angles becoz i always use from front. cammera is good .. phone is fast... good experience on games also.. i must say if you want fast phone in your budget this is the best choice.. it is better then Samsung galaxy S3, note before buy any samsung stupid phones jst hands on it. u will realize that. it is best....in all things.. under 28000/- price....
good work sony.....
AnonD-168184, 23 Jul 2013Either they are lying or else its there bad luck....ofcourse there will be some faulty xperia ... morepls tell me something about its music too.it is strong like sonyericsson older devices???
Just ans me 1 qu. why we need to drown ZR in water forcefully? Sony r making water resistance smartphone bcoz they provide us a smartphone to preserve from rain or any other situation in which we dropped our ph in water accidently but it dose't mean that we put it in water ourself.
Does this phone supports USB-on-the-go like xperia z? anyone had tried?
Need a review on the call quality and wifi strength of this device .....wanna buy it ASAP
Either they are lying or else its there bad luck....ofcourse there will be some faulty xperia zr in de market like 1 in 1000...de flaps are strong and air tight too....de screen works underwater and also de screen detects wet finger touches too....saw some comments abt flaps getting loose...the reason could be of opening the flaps wid pressure...never use pressure to open de flaps..as dat could cause de flap to bend causing de water to pour in...i just open de flaps lightly....so far so issues wid de device...no lags... No restarts....de speaker volume gets low when dipped in water but after 10 mins it ll be bac to normal...u ll get calls underwater too...;)
djz, 22 Jul 2013I have a Xperia v and dont know what yur talking about. Xperia v is a good phone!Maybe you have a fantasy model with more than 8GB internal storage and battery that last more than 3 hours, sounds like a job for mental health care.
AnonD-167030, 23 Jul 2013hi all, wanted to know about how effective is the waterproof claim of this phone. Came to know... moreThere will always be a risk with removable back cover, and the covers doesnt even snap on that well, like on Xperia V, it feels suspiciously loose, very hard to trust that feeling.
I say it again, Xperia Z, great phone well worth the slightly higher price. ZR has low end storage and midrange display but cost almost the same as Z, wtf is that??
AnonD-168184, 23 Jul 2013I bought this phone 2 days back...pretty awesome looking device..bought it from b'lore Sony ce... moreThanks San for ur reply, that means others who say that they had problem with their phone due to water means its either they are lying or its their bad luck.
I bought this phone 2 days back...pretty awesome looking device..bought it from b'lore Sony center..for RS29.5k..Its smooth and snappy in terms of
performance and yes it is waterproof..tried once in a bucket filled wid ice cold water..clicked picz inside the bucket and also texted ;).next day at my offc place to amuse my pals i dipped it in a transperant water bottle..worked well..plus they tried calling to my no and yes it was ringing in the water :D..if u open the flaps and the back panel ,der will be some water droplets left..but it wont harm de device cauz its covered with rubber coating...so far i have no issues with the phone...vga cam is okie..wid light it is clear but the bac cam is super cool...lot of settings are there in the bac cam ..pretty confusing with the iso parameters..but hell ya ..my mob is totally water proof and snappy too...Jus stealing the MAC-D line...Em Loving it!!! :D
hi all, wanted to know about how effective is the waterproof claim of this phone. Came to know from a few posts that this phone is not waterproof as it claims to be.
XPERIA ZR Is NOT A WATERPROOF PHONE
My xperia zr got problems while in the rain..on the second day of purchase.. its NOT WATER PROOF.. i have my phone spoilt, and sony customer support says that the warranty will not be honored if water gets inside. [try talking to the sony support centre and check before buying]
dont get fooled by the advertisements. I bought my phone from croma.. and let me tell you they will not respond to you properly even the next day or on the phone.. it took me 20 minutes to get the croma guy to get a complaint number.
basically you are stuck with an INR 30k phone. I don't know what will happen to mine.. xperia zr sucks and so does croma for giving me a defective phone.
