Buying ZR now is bad idea (seriously).
1)It was old, Sony is not going to support further.
2)Comparing to other mobiles it has very few & rare accessories.
3)Without Dock charger it was not a water resistant.
4)Bad front camera (Now a day’s front camera is important)
5)I am not going to talk about GPU & CPU, because they are managing the system very well.
Still if you want to buy, think one more thing “why Sony reduced the amount around 33% “in sudden.
Of course I am using Sony ZR now; just I am searching for the perfect replace for this phone.

Please don't update your phone, Factory is better than a person, if you want updating your phone, please call SONY factory, factory updates better than a person and if you update your phone without callin factory, your phone will be damaged

AnonD-159403, 20 Aug 2014Guys! I downloaded CPU-Z from app store just to gather more info but I found there only 1 CPU ... moreThat's normal. Krait processors are asynchronous... When you give heavy tasks and if one processor cannot handle it, the others will kick in
AnonD-159403, 20 Aug 2014Guys! I downloaded CPU-Z from app store just to gather more info but I found there only 1 CPU ... moreThat's the way cores of cpu work.At any given time only no. of needed would power up.Let's say ur running a very light application that requires only 1 core (less power) then only 1 out of four cores power up.That in turn also saves the battery power needed.And in second case say ur running a games which is requires more power (say 4 cores) then all the cores would be powered on according to the processing power needed by any app or system. Hope that helps. :)
Guys! I downloaded CPU-Z from app store just to gather more info but I found there only 1 CPU working and other 3 are stopped. To my knowledge I know that this phone is quad core but I found only 1 working. Can someone plz explain?

Maziar, 19 Aug 2014I love SONY, but which one is better? Xperia SP or ZR? Please help me ThanksZR
Maziar, 19 Aug 2014I love SONY, but which one is better? Xperia SP or ZR?
Please help me
ThanksActually both phones are good phones, it depends on what you need. there is no absolute best phone, each has cons and pros.
1-: price-wise, ZR is more expensive than SP (different in different countries).
2-: camera is 13 megapixel in ZR (only 8 in SP)
3-: Performance of 4 core processor of ZR can not be compared to dual core of SP (it is noticeable in some resource hungry apps)
4-: ZR is dust and water proof, SP not.
on the other side: SP is more elegant, the metal like finish is better, the notification light is more attractive, heating is less in SP (ZR tends to be hot if u life or work in a hot Place.
Battery life in both is variable, depends on the use like for gaming, videos and internet, the signal strength of both WIFI and carrier company (when the signal is weak, the device will consume more power searching for the signal).
The choice is yours. again both phones are very good phones in the mid-range xperia series.
