Your Sony Xperia Z impressions

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Your Sony Xperia Z impressions

I'd like to know your thoughts on the phone. Have any of you tried it? Good? Bad? Cracked screens? Dat terrible Sony customer service? I'd like to hear from actual current users or past users and not admirers on the sidelines.

 

 

 

Thanks in advance!

I have the Z1 and I love every bit of it. Never had any issues with it so far. I love the size and build of it, the screen, the camera and the long battery life (runs me about 2-3 days before I need to charge, but of course depends on what you run on it). I never had any problems with it so I never had the chance to call up their customer service.



Well I've had the Z2 since Thursday, and let me tell you this... it's the best phone I've ever used! It seemed REALLY big at first, this is coming from an Xperia Play, the size difference is enormous, but after a while you get used to holding it anyway, and I've ordered a leather case/wallet (Y'know those foldy ones, this has card slots too which is handy) which will be here tomorrow, since I'm always scared of what will happen if I drop it, it's my baby!

The camera is better than on the Z and Z1 apparently, so I suppose it's unfair to comment there, but it really does take some gorgeous pictures and the 4K video recording is great too! Not to mention the screen is insane, the colours are amazing and everything just pops on the phone!

Battery life, well I always put my phone on charge when I get in from work anyway, but today I didn't... it was on 100% at 5:45pm (When I set off to work, I unplugged it at 100%) and it's beside me now, at 2:20am at 92%, and that's with some facebook and internet usage, so it's not too bad really.

I can't comment on customer support when it comes to THIS phone since I've only just gotten it, but in terms of Sony support with phones in general, when I first got my Xperia Play, a few weeks later my cat knocked it off the table and it landed with a dint on the corner and the power button and volume buttons sort of... fell off, lol. I called Sony up, and within minutes we'd already arranged for them to exchange it, very few questions asked lol... one of them was "What's your cat's name?" ...George "Is George around?" ...Yes "Put me on loud speaker" ...*Puts loud speaker on* "George you're a very naughty boy!" It was actually pretty funny lol, the lady was really nice!



I had an xperia z, at the time when I purchased the device it was up there as one of my favorite smart phone devices, BUT it was slower cearly than the iphone 5 was.. and my current device the nexus 5.. reason being the device was running on snap dragon 400.. (clocked a littler higher than the galaxy s III), water resistance was great.. camera was great..

BUT THE Z1 is a HUGE improvement.. super snappy, better camera, slightly better screen.. but overall when I had the xperia z I would say it was sony's best smartphone at the time.. clearly they have improved drasticly on the device.. with the z2 being one of the top 3 best smartphone devices money can buy today (according to critics and android stans)

Unusual that you say it is clearly slower than a 5. I have found my xperia T to be faster than an iphone 5 in some aspects so I would expect the z to be better.

I'm not sure why anyone is comparing it with the Z1 compact or Z2 since both have an IPS screen so they can't be compared. Camerawise every Z after the original has a 20.7MP camera while the Z had a 13MP.

I had a Z1 but it stopped charging. It was something to do with the magnetic charger which the Z also has so be careful with that. Think it went in backwards or something. Sent it back and waited for the Z2 to release here.



I would tell you but I dont get mine until next week =P
Guess I should keep an eye on this thread though



Never heard of it.



Well, this is new.

Read.

My wife has the z1 and its gorgeous... you tube looks great on it, has a great camera, but the camera doesn't always work perfectly might be the settings...

I will permaban myself if the game releases in 2014.

in reference to KH3 release date

I use an Xperia Z now

Love everything except the battery life, its really bad, imo
The camera isn't that great either

If you were looking for a recommendation I would say start with the Z2, fixes all the complaints from Z and Z1
