The main differences between the Z and ZR is the price really, level of display and a few other features, the ZR can submerge under water of up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes, please remember that you cannot take into swimming pools as this would breach public rights, unless you have your own swimming pool.

Back cover is removable but battery is fixed, remove at your own risk. Service center will do it for you in case you need to replace it, the waterproofing has something to do with it. Anyway the battery has good size, and I assume it comes with the fast charger like any of the Xperia that came out lately. 30-45min charging time.
Samsung Guy, 13 Jun 2013Better buy samsung's phone... very slow update from sonyKeep the plasticky crap with you! Only one design in various sizes? Poor quality also!
I cancel on the galaxy mega 5.8 and go for ZR instead of SP, as this should not cost much more and delivers many times the performance, both cpu and gpu. The more I look at and read about galaxy mega 5.8 the more I am convinced that it is underpowered garbage, plus Sony is shining very bright this year, it's like getting an Xperia makes perfect sense.
