  1. It's funny to me that everyone talks about how fast the mobile market is upgrading, and yet this phone, from 2013, which you can buy for 200-350 dollars, is as capable as the modern phones. Yeah, octa-core and beyond, as well as 4gb of ram, but truly the only drawback here other than the still average battery (cough) is that it has 2g of ram.

  2. i heard some stuff about the volumue not being as it should be after upgrading to 5.1.1 lolipop andriod and led notication light also not working and bad battery life span. is this true?

  3. I bought this phone last week i did have the sony xperia sp which was a fantastic phone and would recommend to anybody who is on a budget. But the z had all the features that i really wanted on my ideal phone. The 5inch hd display, quad core processor. 2gb ram, 4.4 kit kat and i have to say i was very impressed the colours of this device is beautiful it runs really smooth with no lag . Yes the battery life is not the best and the speaker is not brilliant. But overall you can see why this was a 2013 flagship phone.

  4. I was torn with purchasing the purple or black one, luckily i went with the black. This phone is immaculate, and so beautiful in design! Best move ive ever made in technology was to buy my sonyy xperia Z. I cant fault it?? Btw, I did pay $600 unlocked here in Australia. Still, in comparison to other smart phones, it was the cheaper option. Bottom line, im a very happy customer :)

  5. Reading some comments here about people saying sony phones are expensive?? I mean maybe you people are retarded or something but in NZ I-phones costs around 1 grand and a sony xperia z costs around 700….Samsungs are also over 900. Somebody here also mentioned that 70% of the people cant afford this phone….last time i checked 70% of the world own a I-Phone which is more expensive than this phone.

  6. Good review, the camera was upgraded with firmware to reduce the over aggressive noise reductions, now performs identical to the s4 camera (uses same Sony sensor), but yes battery is the biggest issue

  7. Just like to say the battery can be replaced, the back cover does come off its just sealed on
    Also you might want to add a review on the service menu , that actually tells you the health of the battery
