Sony Xperia Z - User Reviews

  • Hi all xperian..i wanna ask about my xperia z. Why it can't do navigatation although i have turn on the gps location and internet data? Can u help me on this matter. tq

  • Good decent phone, best built and design quality, nice camera, good interface

  • Good phone for it's time, bad auto setting on camera though. You sould run in manually. And also a LOT of chromatic aberration.

  • however the latest android isnt 4.3 . The home page says 5.1.1

  • install a custom rom

  • Using it for 3 years, until end of the year of 2018. I realize The phone's OS (im currently using Android 4.3) is not compatible with nowadays apps. Oh yeah, instagram kept me shutting down phone. I even need to find older version of the app just to use it, if I use the latest one, it lag or cannot be opened.

  • I have this device for 3 years after buying it from a friend who had already used it for a while, it works perfectly, the only bad thing is that there are no system updates for him and the worst thing is that it gets too hot.

  • Has anyone set up call barring model number C6603?

  • Had this phone for about a year. It ran smoothly with no problems and it survived water with no problems. I like the small form factor of this phone ecen though it’s not a compact

  • dont chrge with fast sharg maybe damage your device

  • Does anyone charge it with the quick charger?

  • mine will be 7 years in april. tough phone. only battery have to charged twice daily now. a bit slow because of full memory. had it reset once.

  • my Sony Xperia Z will be six years old this year..its still working just as well as when it was new..iv no desire to upgrade until it stops working..when that will be iv no idear..so far its been bullet prof

  • The Legend of Android Smart Phones I think its the extraordinary Phone ever by SONY still using in 2019

  • My phone is Sony E2033. I can't get any update in my phone. I need updation.

  • I've been using this flagship phone for over 5 years now. This phone was my parents gift. I've used it for intensive gaming in the first year. Then be it watching or recording videos, taking selfies or pictures, listening to music etc, this phone has been by my side like a true buddy. I will replace this with a new phone next year but will still keep on using this one. By now: It's not water resistant, discharges quickly, lags a little bit, internal speakers do not function when on calls so I can't hear anything at times. BUT, THIS PHONE HAS SERVED ME WELLLL!!

  • Same happened to my phone. After replacing the battery the problem gone. But now I am facing another problem. I can charge my phone only when it completely discharged to 0%.

  • 4 and a half years now, momey definitely well spent. It's having issues lately - it's powering on and off, and restarting. I hope it's fixable because I don't want to get another phone, this one has saved me a lot of money and troubles.

  • yes its true i have the some probleme but i start charging when it has 20% and around

  • there is a bug in the device where some times battery indicator is showing less than real charge so it looks like the battery is dying. if you try to switch off - on again the percentage jumps back to normal I do this app. bi-weekly , checking the hidden test menu shows nothing wrong with battery updated to 4.3 still appearing but less frequently. I don't know if there is other factors for this phenomena

  • okay overall, but charge last for less time if i use internet or apps.

  • 5 years and now not waterproof anymore. use frequently to snap in pool

  • I want to know how to mend the screen for Sony Xperia mobile phones

  • Cannot functional correctly. Suitable for senior citizen only.

  • superpeb phone works fime after 4years wish it lasts more than 10 years working with me saving thosands of e pounds for newer smarts phones

  • - Older than the Samsung Galaxy S4 - Supports a newer version of Android

  • - Looks great - Still performs well, never broken the screen - Questionable build quality, rear glass not well attached, battery expanded, cracking rear glass

  • He still great as he can do so i still keep him for some light work, but he is the Legend

  • I miss this design. The latest xz2 is so fat. Sony always went weird when innovating. X performance is fat, but i like the 5inch. Xzs to xz1 increases the forehead but reduce the battery to 2700. Small battery in 5.2inch phone? Not acceptable. The only good phone now is xz1 compact. That's true compact. Xz2c is xz2 fat. Looks like L series with cheap plastic.

  • Same, 3 years and still going strong

  • I'm still using this phone after all these years. It might not be fast as it used to be. But, it gets the job done. Really awesome Smartphone.

  • Had my Z5 for 2 years. Phone is fantastic,but the endless Os updates drive me nuts. I realize that security needs constant attention, but I wish that Sony and Android would leave everything else alone.

  • I've got a new experia XZ and the timer of all things just stops of its own accord well before the actual time I put in!

  • I want to replace the battery. It seems that sony stops producing the battery of sony z which is the most important part of the device. You made a small battery which becomes tired and you can't help your customers to buy a replacement battery. You know how to sell your phone but you fail in selling a needed battery for the phone.

  • good phone..i have used for 5 years

  • Buying this phone before 4 years has proved the fact that if you buy a Sony Flagship, it will give you more than you expected. During last four years, no replacement of parts, no malfunctioning, no defects..

  • I got this for $50 used! This is 5years old and it still has better specs than a brand new budget phone. Flash an Android7+ rom on it and it runs perfectly. Its even smaller than most phones today but with a large and sharp 5inch 1080p screen.

  • Can I be helpt my Phone is not responding to data connection any more I have tried to reset it I'm not winning

  • Try removing dust. I hada similar problem and almost sold the phone

  • Make a flashing and it will be better. I mean deleat and reinstall the system.

  • Watch videos and be careful to by original one

  • Don't you dare comparing that piece of... umm... rotten apple to Sony Z!

  • It's like a bigger version of the iPhone 4S.

  • just use this command *#*#4636#*#* and use LTE only

  • Sony Xperia Z C6603 requirment system

  • Please help me some one...i am unable to use lte I mean 4g...please help me...

  • go to playstore for android..type call blocker..choose anyone..install and start using it to block unwanted call. it,s free

  • Hi, can anyone please assist me? Would like to know hoe does one block a tellphone number?

  • Excellent performance... 4 years up to now.. My best choice Love Xperia Z Thanks for team Sony

  • Same, fell in love with it ever since I first saw it in a TV ad... 4 years later, still the best smartphone ever for me.

  • still works after 3 years of use, the phone cover is scrathed everywhere but phone is fine only little bit dusty flaps and mistake on gsmarena page is that it only supports up to 64gb micro sd, thats not true since xperia z also has micro sd xc standart and theoretically sd xc standart supports up to 2tb of storage, also im using sandisk's micro sd xc 200gb in this phone and it works fine my other phone xperia z2 has sandisk micro sd xc 256gb in it and also works fine....

  • This is my dream phone. Still is, today.

  • My alltime favourite being with me for 3years. Love it

  • Best phone for price and performance. Four year in constant use still in good codition despite multiple drops

  • Best in Class, this phone has best upgraded phone by length of support. to being for more than 2 years around 25 month to 30, even more? don't know about last security patch , should check it soon btw never non-iOS in modern era can't touch this phone. Sony is best company in update sinze z / x / xz area. as they are not android one project , So they are best as Pixel are ... they just get them faster . LG is good and xiaomi both good are security patches. Moto was ok . Nokia is Superb in Mid-range and many other companies . Samsung With much sell is ok. All companies should give 3 year Security Patches to high range phone and two years for mid-range budget ones

  • its a god phone but some one stole it before a week a go but im going to buy an iphone 6s plus

  • use dock charger or repair

  • yeah, it has led notification light with lots of different colours. blink after receiving notification.

  • Lovely phone. Used it for 3 years before it started giving me charging point problems. Good phone !!!!

  • it's a worndeful peace of Sony moblie i like it... My question is it had a notification LED Light working or not...?

  • I had the Xperia Z for a couple of years. The phone was crap. The water proof seal started to brake of after a couple of months. I don't recommend Sony. I also have the Xperia z2 tablet which also has had problems. I had it replaced 3 times for the same problem. So saying again I don't recommend Sony. I feel sony seems to be going downhill.

  • Using it for 4 years! all i can say is perfection!

  • I've had mine since it was first released. It has been a great phone all those years! After 4 years and many drops, yesterday I dropped it and finally broke the display. Such a good phone and has been great value for money.

  • Hi, This is generic feedback about Sony Xperia series. The battery for phones around Rs15000 is 3000MAH,but for Sony phones it is very less. It seems Sony Xperia manufacturer don't want to sell their products. Just a small things which can be seen by a 12th pass but it is not visible to Sony management. Second thing price ,the phone is costlier with almost same specifications of other phones.

  • I have Sony Xperia 3 years its all the time this phone create problem Sony Xperia very bad phone do not buy this crap

  • It's not hard to change the battery. You just need to heat up the back of the phone. Be carefull to not break the glass... Happened to me...

  • Using this phone almost 4 years. Now using LineageOS on it, totally satisfied with every thing except the battery. How can I check the real capacity of the battery? I followed many instructions and installed many apps to figure out the actual capacity but they didn't help me. Any suggestion? How hard it is to change the battery by myself? It costs 40 Euros in repair shop.

  • I love my Sony z.. I am satisfied..using this phone since 2014 and still it has not a single scratch mark. I used the set very roughly,it dropped from my hand >100 times but still it is awesome in it's look & function. But the major problem is over heating all the time,even when DATA connection is off! Battery drain out so fast! Otherwise after so many years still it can beat any other smart phone of 2GB Ram!

  • Yes that true it over heating i have it and it awesome and battery is slow down fast

  • Please, how do you upgrade your OS, in sony xperia z, i tried it, but I only got to 4.3, i read in different websites that people use lollipop, some marshmallow. Please i need help

  • It is good phone, best is its 2G RAM, do not hang, supports 64gb card easily, normal is not much use in rain and water, bad is of single sim.

  • Why my Sony Xperia Z C6603 4G signal doesn't work? Please help for solution.

  • Thanks to developers mine is still running well. Still love this phone, it is running Android 7.1.2 Nougat (Custom ROM). Still my daily driver. It is nowhere near the fastest or greatest, but it gets the job done. It's actually surprising given that it has 4 and half year old specs inside. Decent camera (If you know how to scrape a good photo; obviously in the manual mode). There are few complaints like, very low audio output, etc. Still battery life is good. Thanks to Greenify, it still survives for about a day and a half in decent usage. Thanks to the Lineage OS 14.1 and Google it has few bells and whistles like, double tab to awake, double tap on the home button to turn the screen off, one handed usage, split screen, pressing the power button for about 2 sec will turn the flash light on (when screen is off or turn the camera on, when done the same thing while the screen is on) and most importantly Okay Google support (Beta Test).

  • My Xperia z speaker not working when playing media plus earpiece not working.. . Any solution?

  • I was super excited to get a hold of an Xperia Z. I was using an LG Optimus G and loved it, but the deal breaker was no expandable memory. I saw pics of the Xperia and fell in love. Read the specs and was hooked. I sold my Optimus and got a hold of an Xperia as quickly as I could! First off, when I got it, it was still running JB. Hot, laggy and not at all what I was expecting from a Sony. However, right away I was informed of the Lollipop update. At first, it was ok. I wasn't happy with the lack of customization after having ICS, but I could live with it. Then I started having the issues again. Hot, laggy and bad service. My son has it now and is using it like an iPod. The media speaker gave up the ghost and the waterproof seals are gone for both ports. It gets major hot when he runs the simplest of games. I'm getting him something different when finances permit. Overall, really disappointed. Used to be a die hard Sony fan.

  • set to battery stamina mode. to prevent app run on back ground. sometimes signal not that strong even screen turn off but app still keep in l loading. this action consume lots of battery.

  • I love Sony, I have my own. Xperia z

  • : I've had my Xperia Z for over 3 years now without a problem. Never overheats, battery works fine, takes great pictures although I never use the secondary camera. I put in a 64 gig sd card so now I have more than enough storage space. I upgraded from Jelly Bean to Lollipop and didn't really notice any really big changes. I was thinking of getting the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra cause I like the idea of having a 6" screen, however this phone has no Fingerprint scanner. So I'll stick with my Xperia Z (that I really like) for the time being till one comes along with both 6" screen and fingerprint scanner. I luv Sony's cellphone designs and don't care that they have a bezel. This is now my forth Sony cell phone and I'll never buy any other brand...

  • I love my sonny Xperia Z phone. I am practically in love with it. Just a few problems; the phone is always and I mean always over heating. Whether I use while charging or after charging. It drains fast also, well maybe it is the age of the phone. Also it doesn't block useless numbers and then recently my call ringtone just went off. The message tone is there but for the calls it isn't. Maybe I should consider a new model.

  • Yes this can help in the heat management so that it will not overheat more than other phones when charging

  • I want to point that Sony smartphones decreases the charging speed automatically whenever the phone becomes warmer from the inside.

  • One of the best phone i ever had. And still good until almost 1,5 year without any problems except warm. But... This is the worst battery phone life i ever had since i use cell phones year 1999 till now. Even if i use it while charging, the phone is still discharging.

  • The phone is good plbut the camera and battery not that much

  • this is the best phone I've ever had,it's like a brick,except it gets KINDA warm and has short battery life,but oh well an external battery does the job! I mean holy shit,spec wise this shit was a beast when released and still is,lmfao

  • I will not choose any more this Sony phones. One yer before I buy one Sony Xperia c4 from UAE.than I use that phone almost 5 mounths.i gating complaints. Than i give to service center. They take almost 15 days for the service. Than i use that phone after 1 mounths same complat. Than i give like 3 times.no benefit for that still I'm gatting same complaints. Plz don't take Sony phones. Friends Thank you

  • I read comments of people They mix between battery discharge time or short battery life and problems of draining battery... This phone does not have a good battery life but it doesn't drain or die suddenly . In fact it is normal for a battery to drain very fast after using the phone heavily from 2-3 years. This problem will be solved with a new genuine Sony z 2330 ml battery.

  • Change the battery. After two years and with a heavy usage it becomes bad. I regretted buying this phone because of its small battery. And Sony is still stupid because they still produce good phones with a a small decent battery. Even if the phone becomes heavy I don't care. Sony please be clever and give people phones with a good battery life.

  • I love my Sony Experia Z however I don't use the data much. The one problem I do have with it is that I have been having a real problem nuisance caller for the last three years and there is no way to block the number (Iphones can). Apparently I have to download an apt, however , the Apt that I have to go to to begin this process appears to be missing from my Google aps. Nevertheless, for someone my age (69), this is a very easy phone to access and my battery lasts me 4 days because I don't use the internet much. Good one Sony, I will get another one when this one dies - it is three years old

  • I Love SONY brand....but i am very irritate of my Xperia Z because i have faceing a battery issue. Suddenly mobile battery auto matically drain. I have submit my mobile in service center but those are not reslove this issue....

  • good if don't mind to charge it 2 times a day while using data ,if wifi it's ok , camera is good , sound not that loud , if you drop it without cover case.. it's a problem because back cover is from glass and the lcd not " gorilla " , it overheat fast and shotdown itself while using data . so it's fast ,you'll have about 11GB internal free memory, it's good phone if you're not attached to use it all day in your hand.

  • I'm using this phone right now and it's still fast . Well done sony for making a durable phone. I don't think I would get a new phone unless sony release bezeless smartphone with great camera.

  • Me and my friend brought this phone together. After a year her phone stopped charging. Like it was not even detecting charging port. Did everything with it and nothing worked. She lost all her data. Same happened with me after a month. It was working great and at midnight it denied to charge and after that it was just a piece of plastic. I lost all my data. Me and my friend were fan of some but now we are so scared and decided never to buy Sony.

  • this is the good phone... i am using this comfrotable

  • This phone is just as good as keeping it forever. its off the chain!!

  • Have been using this phone for the close to a year now... The only problem with the phone is the battery life and the fone get hot easily... But the camera is damn GOOD!

  • what a nice phone, i still using right now looking forward to buy xperia xz

  • I Have this for 4 years soon. It works great except battery life. I wanted to buy a Z1 or z2 but they aren't selling anywhere except from some Chinese eBay stores that I don't trust to deliver a brand new phone. I am looking to buy a new phone, I'm leaning towards xperia XZ but it's so damn expensive. 500+ euros including the case and dock from online retailers. The service they offer is bad compared to big stores like amazon, if it breaks you have to rely on Sony subcontractor in my country to fix the phone, and they are even worse than a kid with a screwdriver. On amazon it costs 600+ including accessories but they replace your phone if it's faulty, no ping pong with the crappie service center . Xperia performance on the other hand is 350 + accessories =400 euros. Maybe better but the battery seems weak. I wish Sony would keep creating phones like Z1 z2. They should reboot those phones as z2* or something. I'm sure they will sell like crazy

  • Godam ??? mmmmmmm bruvv it's actually spelt GODDAMN

  • I'm having similar battery issues. Now I also have bluetooth issues. But still, I will love no other phone brand like how it is with Sony.

  • Today i am already using this phone for 4 years. And its still working well. I love this phone.

  • I have this phone almost 4 years, I love this phone. but now, the battery drain fast (open music, wssap, fb, IG).. and sometime the phone turn off when my battery is 60%, and 0% when I switch it on back.. BUT I STILL LOVE SONY.

  • am using Sony Xperia Z C6603 and it has given me lots of problems from overheating to slow charging and powering off without warning even when fully charged. wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

  • I have Sony Xperia Z almost 4 years now. THE BEST phone ever. 4 years of hard heavy using, and still, this phone is UNBREAKABLE. Battery is discharging little bit faster when I'm using it for multimedia purpose, but charging is still fast, from 3% to fully charged battery in less than 1 hour.

  • Mine also. I have Sony Xperia Z almost 4 years now. 4 years of hard heavy using, and still, this phone is UNBREAKABLE. Battery is discharging little bit faster when I'm using it for multimedia purpose, but charging is still fast, from 3% to fully charged battery in less than 1 hour.

  • first of all fix your godam spelling secondly the battery is really easily to remove just smash and remove the glass on the back and buy the new battery to replace it (about 5-10 $ or £)

  • i am using a sony xperia c6603, i`ts freezing and overheating, may you please help me with a remedy.

  • I used to own an Experia C3 - best phone I've ever owned. It got stolen. My upgade is coming up fast. Please tell me of your experiences with the Experia XA. Will I be disappointed after owning a C3?

  • Was it an used or a new phone? You probably got a defective unit, because all the smartphones I ever owned were Sony. Xperia Z1 is a very well built phone, and I doubt it would have any problems, except overheating, which is common with Sony phones. I currently have an Xperia XZ and it is very good.

  • We got my little brother a Sony Xperia Z about 2 years ago. It is the worst phone I have ever come across. Its battery will not last longer than 4 hours. We were charging the phone the whole night, because this is how long it took to fully charge it, and then it will last maximum 4 hours. After 2 years of hardly using it today we can't even charge it so we are throwing it away. I don't know if it's just this specific phone that was defective but I can't believe that Sony produced and sold such an awful device. It's software is far from user friendly.

  • Sony products is so good thr product is long lasting... It's just that thr baterry...

  • Got to say, these are great. Use mine as second phone and it holds charge better than my Z3. My Z is now 4 years old and works fine.

  • I own xperia z since 2013...excellent phone for me....

  • Its been a long way with this phone - 3 years to me, but its still working perfectly fine, nothing broken, looks would be 9/10 has few scratches, cover is completely worn off on the corners but i still keep it, battery holding 2 days for me,because i did charge it 16hours first charge and i do this on everyphone or other device i own - all of them have no battery problems.

  • very2 not okay.. im using xperia z and im not very satisfy with this phone.. have heating issue even you just open the camera for 10mins

  • I have Sony C6603 and it is a good phone once you jail break it, does not overheat but chews the battery. exceptional graphical imaging, so you have a choice, I expect exceptional graphics when I am playing games or watching a movie.

  • hi everyone..does xperia z battery performance is good or not when you play game??i currently using another brand and its drain the battery like hell..so i want your opinion about this

  • You right sir,,Its a very heated problem

  • sony product very bad i know sir

  • haiz..i bought it and when i playing it will damage tat LED screen

  • I bought this Sony Xperia Z since it was launched here in Dubai in January 2013 and its performance is great until now

  • This phone is absolutely rubbish.no quality and sonny as a company is very dubious because they won't even repair Thier useless fake productan. No wonder they can never be like apple. Please do not buy it's total waste of money

  • i own this phone and it is a problem to me it drains battery too fast,the sudden death problem is still there and when playing games with it, it overheats

  • Sir I am writing this mail to you because i am very very disappointed not only with the Sony phone but also with the rude behaviour of executive in your service center. This kind of behaviour was really unexpectable for me. I visited your service center with the hope that the choice of purchasing sony phone is my right decision and I will get appropriate solution of my problems but now, sorry to say I was wrong. Because you fail to provide after sale service to your customer. I just want to know how can any customer remain cool if he is getting problem in his phone again and again after repeatedly going service center. I have already mentioned all the problems of phone in my earlier mails. Initially there was not Such kind of any problem in camera but after visited your service center i have started facing problems in camera too. As per your executives this is user end mistake i.e. from my end and i will have to pay for it . Do u really think that customer is very much technical to damage his phone's camera and have ample of time to visit your service center again and again. And at your service center it was being said to me to behave like professionally . At one end you take your customer granted and not able to provide better services, at the other side you expect normal behaviour from your customer. Why should i pay money when my phone is under warranty and over of it , this is not my mistake .i have already clearly mentioned that i started facing this problem after visited your service center. This is my really bad experience of using this phone as well as services that you provide to your customer. Sorry but I will not pay any single penny for any service. plz do not purchase sony product

  • I've got mobile as third owner in august 2014. Since then I haven't had any problems with device. I think Sony did a splendid job on this one. I love the phone and it's features display colours, battery life and performance. Sadly on some level in late 2016th 3.5 audio jack slot gone and i replaced this for new unit part on my own. It's started playing audio in clear dynamic sound even on used earphones. As is 2017th I'm finally looking for an upgrade just something little faster. Camera etc. Sony Xperia of course;-) But still will be using my old Xperia Z as it's great phone.

  • i have buy a refurbished xperia z(from lazada)and got problem with microphone ang data line

  • I was unlucky with my device because of the approximity sensor. i had it replaced . Then comes the problem of responding to WiFi . A damaged piece which was replaced too . Two problems in two years. I hope not to face new problems again. I was really disappointed though I very much take care of my phone . I bought a device from another company. Relatives use Samsung carelessly nevertheless they do not have problems of maintenance like me. I thought that Sony was better. Good bye Sony.

  • I've owned a Z for over three years and it's been great ! Sorry you lost yours Ena

  • I am too sad, just lost my Xperia Z in a train. The performance is awesome. Used since 3 years ago, never had any serious issues. RIP my Xperia...

  • Yes this phone is amaizing..Still using it and is smooth as tennessee whiskey.

  • I saw a lot of people have z since 2013 and all are satisfied, its an amazing phone, if you don't know how to handle a phone properly don't blame companies.

  • Lol no body cares for your lies here,you even didn't know how to write a good lie, Sony phones are best,

  • Horrible experience!!... The phone died and even when we had paid insurance they found a way no to honore it. The insurance is a total scam. Worst ever ... We will never EVER buy a Sony cellphone again EVER!!!!

  • Sony xperia z is very beautiful hand sate

  • very bad experience with sony experia mobile.i bought this before a few months with the price near 20,000.But now it is not in use.all parts of its are not good especially battery.I m totally disppointed with this product.It is very poor quality. I suggest do not buy Sony mobiles, not worth at all. :(

  • Hi guys! I am debating what Phone can I upgrate next. I was wondering what apps the xperia has? Snap chat? To d talks? Vsco can?

  • I had an Z5 and then got the XZ. The XZ is a worth upgrade trust me!

  • I have no problems with camera. Maybe factory reset helps or just repair your phone with pc companion (reflash the firmware), first backup your data etc if you want so you won't lose anything.

  • I have been using this model last 3 years... & still now

  • Hi, I'm not found previous post about my problem..had anyone has a issue with camera not focusing and when using flash the photos taken going bright (over exposed)?

  • No the C6602 version doesn't support 4G, C6603 version does.

  • Have been using one for the past 2 and half years, and a wonderful phone. Been lucky not to crack the screen. This one's water proofing or whatever capability didn't last long, the covering flip on charging port's side had to be removed, nevertheless, could easily give a bath to the other parts of its body. :D Sony's software support has been wonderful throughout, may be because this was once a flagship phone. Still love this phone, below par from performance wise (compared to 2016/7s phones) obviously, since this has 4 year old technologies under the hood. Nevertheless, usable. So far, the battery is also in a good condition. It could last 1 and half days with decent usage, and phone's camera could take some decent photos. They are not very great, but, this performs well, when it requires its service. I could say I was a happy customer. Thank you SONY for this wonderful product...!!!

  • Sony Z C6602 4G support or not support Please tell me answers

  • Crackea very easy Bad WiFi Bad battery Then death (short circuit motherboard) Never been dropped in water

  • Such a great phone. had it for over three years, dropped it many, many times and it never broke!

  • does this phone have mirror screen

  • Black is very nice! It's such a great phone honestly. Got me through 3 years and it's still very fast, no lag at all. I'm very satisfied with this phone. I've been using Sony phones for over 10 years now and they really are the best! I'm getting a new phone soon (Xperia Z5). It took me so much time to decide which new phone I'm going to get. I actually wanted to try some other brand like Oneplus but I'm afraid Oneplus isn't as durable as Sony. I need a long lasting phone, so I'm going with Sony again because I know that their build quality is the best. Hopefully Z5 will be as good as Z, maybe even better!

  • its amazing and i,m fully satisfied from xperia z....i.m using it from 2 years but its not giving me any single problem and i.m a big fan of camera quality.

  • I have Z2 now and it has no problem at all using it since 4 months ago But if you can get the Xperia Z go for it i love it but it won't get updates after lollipop 5.1.1

  • My friend had a Z2 and the touch screen becomes irresponsive after a month or so.I don't want to take the risks tho cuz people say new Xperia models are problematic.Fyi,I saw this phone in a shop recently and I'm thinking of buying it.Thanks for the opinion :)

  • Yes it can handle all that its a very good phone! But you won't find it in the markets now you also you may check Z2 for a better camera and bigger battery

  • Can this phone handle heavy usage or gaming without any lags? How about the front cam? Is it wide enough to take group selfies? I'm really interested to buy this one since a lot of people complain about newer Xperia models.. Thanks for your time..

  • it depends on bandwidth available in your country.

  • U need to buy a 4g enabled phone

  • 6602 is 3g phone it will not support jio because jio is purely 4g network. Only 6603 will support jio

  • I've been using this phone for 3 years now and it's still so good. No lags whatsoever, runs smoothly. I've also dropped it at least ten times and there are no cracks in the display. I recently replaced my old screen protector with a new one and when I took the old one off there wasn't any scratches at all in the display. The build quality of this phone is just so good.

  • This is the Best Smart Phone so far, been using it for the past 2 years and its still running like champ, no lags. Just a bit over heat when processor is on full usage but overall 9.9/10 phone it is! 0.1 for over heat which I can live with!

  • Touch and hold the home screen (not on an icon or anything else, on the wallpaper/empty space on home screen). Then when the personalization menu pops up, choose home settings on the right side and it allow you to make the icons much, much smaller... I personally don't like the big icons, I always have them adjusted to be small...

  • Hello, I experience severe trouble with my Sony Xperia Z1 compact. Ever since I updated the new android, my phone has become extremely slow, with a lot of bugs. It was advised by sony to update and was explicitly written that my data will not be affected. It is the case, however it takes ages to write a simple sms, all the application freeze, when I connect it to my laptop it restarts the application "sony bridge" every second with no success. It is indeed a nightmare and I am seriously thinking of switching to another brand after 10 years of trust to this company. I was really satisfied by my phone when I bought it but it is unbearable to use right now. Will Sony take any actions to fix this bug? Can I downgrade the android?

  • What xperia phone has the highest rating?

  • Yep

  • my is xperia c6603 4g supported ?

  • Cant you unlock it with your Google account?

  • Yes, it does.

  • No No it does not support 4G

  • I put the screen lock pattern and forgot what I had put almos immediately. Any way I can clear it? I have tried over 2500 patterns but still can't figure out what I had put. Been told to flush the phone but I have important data I don't want to lose.

  • I have updated to 5.1.1 via OTA so i'm cool... but i hope the other guy gets to update it too. So thanks for the advice anyway :)

  • You both can update with Sony PC Companion. If not, install Psiphon to change your country and then try again with Sony PC Companion.

  • No it does not support 4G

  • Yes, then it could very well be region related problem :/ It's been about 12 months since Sony released 5.1.1 for Xperia Z so yeah, it should have definitely come by now. Maybe there is a way to update it manually if OTA doesn't give notification?!? Idk.

  • I have had problems with my Sony Z since upgrading to Lollpop. Battery is gone and shuts down after 3-4 hours. Becomes really hot. Had no problems whilst Kit Kat system. Hating it now.

  • Hiiii.. My phone is Sony Xperia z model no. 6602 Is phone supported jio SIM? Pls help me.some one help how can I do Plssssssssss

  • how can i go to recovery mode in my eperia z c6602?? plz ans...that pink led is not blinkking in my phone ..is there any other way to go to recovery mode for this perticular phone.....??

  • Sorry, forgot the details in earlier post. Yes, my phone is Xperia Z "C6603 variant", the one that support LTE. I do understand the update comes according to region, but not this time, it's just way to long. I've lost hope the update 5.1.1 is ever coming. I'm not sure what I'm missing here, or did Sony stopped supporting Malaysia region. Any idea would be a help, thanks.

  • Hi, you need to have either C6602 or C6603 model of Xperia Z to be able to update to 5.1.1... as far as i know, there is no update for C6606 model, for some reason. Hope that clears problem for you :)

  • Guys, I've been using this phone in Malaysia. I have updated to lollipop 5.0.0. The problem is, I can't find update for 5.1.1 from OTA. I have waited very long now but don't think this update is happening. I've also tried Sony Suite, and it just says your phone has the updated version already. Any1 care to advice please.

  • camera poor..z 6603

  • The durability of Sony phones is really good..it depend on yourself how you care about device, I have both Xperia Z ultra and Z compact..there functionality are still fluid...

  • I wana asked that I m nt getting 4g in my device

  • it has heating problems,is suitable for ....

  • Worst phone one could ever buy. WORST.. no regular updates. I got cracked my screen twice and that too due to silly heating issue. Sony has lost its track. Xiomi , lenovo, Moto are far better than this atleast they provide update to their handset. If there would have been negative ratings i would have given that. 1/10 For SONY

  • Sony xperia is most useless model of Sony. You can see people sharing common problem like GPS not working, photos not clear, music quality poor and so on. C-3 was one of the worst model which sony has invented was which also dis-continued soon. I had samsung GTS5670 which was a very great mobile. Never experienced any issue untill i purchased sony xperia c3.

Worst sony

  • Well iv been using it since last year and my Sony Z still up to anything i throw at it relatively very well parallel to he given spec. GAmes..surf..media all goes fine. 2. So far from my exp i can say Its water resistant enuff for spills or tap water cleaning but im not really sure beyond that. im not risking testing it. Not even ever drop it even once so far. Afterall GREAT build quality of a fine craftmanship and it does feel premium to the touch. For my purpose i dont see any need of replacing it yet as it complies all my need for it. . For me SONY and team just do their job very well. I dont thimk im going back to iphone

  • The SONY mobile co. Is a lier...they says xperia z is water resistant... Why does his touch didnt eork properly after droping it in water....

  • No dude...it does work in water but only 5 to 6 times....and if u drop it in water after 6 times it will shut down itself...and when you switched it on the touch did not work properly...

  • I have been using this phone Since 2.5 yrs.. And also the phone has been rooted.. It works so well that I can't even think to change such phone.. It does work in water also.. No fear.. JUST take it in the pool and Enjoy :)

  • There is a option when u scroll to the last

  • I have bought this Sony Xperia Z in order to send it as a gift but I was disappointed when I could not find Arabic among the language options in the phone. I wounder if there is any solution? If not, then what can I do since I can not send the phone to my relative abroad.

  • YES

  • my experia doesn't reads network even when sim was inserted

  • You have to download and install the new firmware manually. Just google it and you will get there eventually. I just had to do that recently myself.

  • Its automatic just go to software update in settings and update ur device just make sure ur phone is charged and back up

  • How can i update my xperia z c6606 to lillipop ?

  • You can charge it using the sumsung charger but the battery will take time to get full and then it wount be fully charged because of difference in power supply to the phone from the charger.

  • Yes of-course u can! I always do that! my Samsung charger with my Z for about 2 years now!

  • im worried can i charge my Z using samsung charger? is it ok 4 the battery? help plz

  • Is the screen glass or plastic because if I apply alittle pressure to the screen a white sort of bubble forms on the screen then disappears

  • it's not happening to my phone though

  • Flash the update for C6616, they are the same phones as far as the internals.

  • This phone sucks... I am using it for more than one year... Battery life decreases a lot while just moving around in the phone at minimum brightness and the phone can easily get hot so fast even when using it for simple tasks like using whatsapp,, instagram..... Kitkat was better

  • how is battery life? and are facing heating issue on lollipop?

  • i guess Lollypop is also working so well.. i'm currently in lillypop 5.0. so i found no trouble since the upgrade. it was like 1 month ago.

  • Heats a lot tho performance is smooth

  • I'm using it from lats 2+ yrs and haven't encountred any single problem with Xperia Z. I have used it double of it's value. But Please don't upgrade it to Lollipop. Kitkat is the Os what Z can support the best.

  • my xperia z have mic problem... i cant voice call with others ...how can i solve this

  • I have Z5 and have to say that did not have worse phone yet :(. During making video system is lagging and until 4mins just stop and only what you can do is shutdown the phone. Also time to time just shutdown from any reason and is impossible to even turn it on just by power button. This device is not reliable at all and is not good even for kids for playing games.

  • Poor and bad device. While running Periscope battery goes to 0% in 20-30 mins and device heats up to 40-45 Celsius degrees. Sometimes it even turns off showing overheating warning message. Awful.

  • I have upgraded to lollipop(5.1.1) but still the battery drains very fast

  • Bro , I have the same problem , there s no way you can repair it , I will get an another phone I cant deal with it anymore , battery drains very fast.

  • U have to upgrade to Lollypop which fixed fast battery draining!

  • Im wondering. Is that normal for 100% battery only last for 3 hours?. Currently im using xp z c6603. Android jelly bean 4.3. Help me

  • Supports 4g network

  • then post your opinion on xperia m2 not here

  • Sony Xperia m2dual is very worst kit kat is good... Now lollipop is updated audio noise, pixels, all are poor now...

  • All Z series Sony phones are superb my friend. Mine is Z3. It is superb phone.

  • i will not buy anything form sony after xperia z .. so bad

  • After updating my z to 5.1.1 my display is showing washed away colors. Its not that sharp. What to do.. Can any one help me out ..??

  • thats real support

  • Sony Xperia Z is a very good, fastest android smart phone with 2GB ram, 1.51GHZ snapdragon S4 processor and awesome 13.1 megapixel rear camera. It had fallen two times from my hand but there was no scratch in the screen and it is working properly. It has a very good display with HD quality picture and I am very much happy with this handsome android smartphone.....

  • Has a serious problem with the gps. It overheats when ever you use the gps and will not charge and drains in around one hour. I no longer use the gps because it damages the sim reader and your phone can no longer read a sim card. I had the phone replaced under guarantee but the new one has the same problem. Apart from that its a great phone. The battery lasts about a day with normal use and it runs most apps easily. Its durable and has a nice screen.

  • It supports 4G (or LTE). it's just a trademark.

  • I have been using SXZ for the past 1 year and its been a great phone. It gets heated some time when you use it continuously for about an hour or so else if u play games for about 30min. Othrrwise its a great phone. I havnt updated my phone and its still on the 4.1 version of android.

  • No it is not a 4g phone

  • Screen is way too delicate, would stop working if it gets the slightest fall. Waste of money. Not as great as xperia p

  • nice phone yarrr....

  • Hahahaha......nice joke..!!

  • same problem call me farai

  • #proud #user i would simply say! like today we remember 3310, xperia Z will be showcased in the HALL OF FAME ~!!

  • can this phone's lcd fixed. my phone fall down and half of the screen is no longer working

  • Sony Xperia C6602 is Sony Xperia Z HSPA+ and doesn't have LTE (only GSM and UMTS). Sony Xperia C6603 is Sony Xperia Z LTE (it has GSM, UMTS and LTE)

  • Hello Guys, my Sony Xperia Z C6602 it does'nt show 4G network mode. what should i do? and its not LTE phone? kindly reply.

  • No but its water resistant but I've used it as an underwater camera with the ports closed and its great and still got no problems.

  • I have Xperia ZL and i'm quite sure that both Z and ZL has come to an end of their road regarding software support. Sony already did great by giving both phones more than 2 years of support (4.1.2 to 5.1.1) so there probably won't be Marshmallow for 1st gen Z-series phones anymore. Of course, they both could handle Marshmallow for sure as Nexus 7 (2013) showed that having same Snapdragon chipset as Z and ZL. But i don't think Sony bothers anymore.

  • Its very heat if talk more than 30 minute

  • what AOSP ROM you use? can you recommend to me please? sorry for my bad english

  • there is no fix for that, my friend the overheating problem comes from Lollipop system itself.. the only thing you can do is root your Z, install TricksterMod, make your gpu run at 200mhz yes it slow down the phone, but it less heat sorry for my english

  • yep your are right bro its over heating lol

  • Experia z is water prof?

  • my sony xperiz z6603 accidentally had contact with water and unluckily some of the ports were not closed... and now a huge setback that i face is the primary camera.. it doesn'tshow anything I've tried a factory reset with no imprivements... any advice please from loyal users

  • phone is best,but over heating

  • Have been using this phone since Jan 2014 (2 yrs+) and still going strong. The latest OS update is up to Lollipop 5.1 (from Jellybean 4.1) and it is very smooth. The battery can still last up to 3.5-4 hours of SOT Doesn't overheat easily unless used heavily continuously for 30mins or more. Only complains: 1) The camera is bad at low-light conditions. 2) The phone auto-factory resets if you put in the pocket of tight jeans due to the power button and volume buttons sticks out. 3) The internal speaker is damaged so I have to use loudspeaker for phone calls. Overall rating: 9/10

  • Over heating problem. When I record video the phone is over heating 🔥..

  • go to settings. then storage. at the bottom, you will see transfer data to sd card

  • Hahahaha same dude

  • i had one last year and they heat so much, was a variant from tmobile C6066 is normal but i think that can change by a unlocked software (No Contract)

  • Is there any solution My mobile gets HOT 40C temp or more then that Please tell me solution

  • Is there any solution My mobile gets HOT 40C temp or more then that Please tell me solution

  • how i can transfer my apps to sd card

  • Change the battery and you'll be ok.

  • same too

  • Does this phone has IR? I want to use an app of a TV remote! How do i do that?

  • We need Marshallow update

  • Please dude, your lies are terribly simple.

  • so true! i wouldn't recommend this phone to anyone. So many better android /iphone phones out there. If you want a very good hand warmer, by a Sony Xperia!

  • Hahahahhah maybe you just bought a fake phone or just a china phone.. For my opinion a phone cannot just overheat at the point that it can be substituted as a gas stove.. Maybe your just using yours too much.. theres no possibly a way that it can overheat without being used

  • Hahaha maybe you just bought a fake one I guess.. I've been using it for abt 2 years now and for my opinion, Xperia Z only overheats if you used it too much in hard-core gaming and I think every phone too so its your fault.. A phone cannot just overheat too much at the point that it can iron clothes especially when it is just in your pockets unless you use it too much in hard-core apps and games

  • i think this phone is good..... i will buy it..... but i do not know how much this phone

  • Would you still recommend this phone in 2016, or would you rather get a Motorola Moto G3 with Marshmallow?

  • Sony Xperia z is not a bad smart phone but this phone ram is not enough..... Okky

  • Hahahahahah my one is a iron plate.......everyday I do iron my pant pocket and my thai....... Bdw I have planned to make an egg omelet on it......and I swear it will work.....

  • U r absolutely correct.........

  • wahahahahahahaha hard laugh!! as in with the GAS STOVE EFFECT of the xperia z :D you are sooo coool unlike your phone hahaha! oh?? by the way my phone is a gas stove too :D

  • Hi im a new user of sony xperia z i just want to ask if their any solution to fix the overheating and fast drain of the battery?? help me pls

  • You are crazy! #Lol

  • what about bss "black spot syndrome" how to fix it????

  • Z

  • The best crap ever! You can even cook food on it, deep fry, boil water in just 2-3 seconds & in any emergency case you can even iron your clothes as well. Its a gas stove, iron, hotplate all in one. But not a phone because if you want to use it. It will take hours long to unlock & it will suddenly reboot & start lagging. Very useful for travelers as you can cook food anytime anywhere faster then a gas stove. Amazing device.

  • best phone forever.

  • After stock update of lollipop on this device...... It's heating power increased and the camera quality is ruined..... Bdw.....company has been closed the device but it feels bad for the users who have it....because the other devices around 8k range...have better camera quality than this...... Just sell it and go for a new Sony device if u r a fan of Sony......I did.

  • If you've replaced the broken screen, then use a tempered glass protector for your SONY Xperia™ Z C6603. You can find it easily on www.amazon.in because q tempered glass protector is the best way to save your screen.

  • Try installing AOSP ROM for Android M v6.0 because it reduces to overheating & lagging that has being noticed on Android L v5.1 in SONY Xperia™ Z C6602/C6603.

  • You'll never have any updates on SONY Xperia™ Z C6602 & C6603 variants. But if you are still desired to get Android M on your Xperia™ then install AOSP ROM on it & you'll get Android M v6.0 on it.

  • It will never have v6.0 Android M. Its stick to Android L at v5.1.1 infact SONY no more supports SONY Xperia™ Z C6602 & SONY Xperia™ Z C6603.

  • Sony Xperia Z is one of the best mobile in market and having lots of pre installed applications. according to market demands, its very good in performance.

  • No update for Xperia z of marshmallow sorry for bad English

  • It has overheating problem and battery drain too fast but still love it plz fix this overheating problem!!

  • My previous phone is Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Extremely perfect phone. Doesn't overheat, doesn't power itself off on me, doesn't complain... Etc.. I changed it coz its getting outdated and decided to give Xperia a chance... Will go for Galaxy Note 3 next month.

  • There is still no report whether it will have a marshmallow update, but still fingers crossed

  • overhotting

  • Thank you for your time. None of all you listed is applicable to this flop device of mine. Its not rooted, never used car charger, OS is on 5.1.1 and no Sony repair center around. I won't bother trying to fix it, I will get rid of it and say kiss Sony products goodbye. Going back to Samsung.

  • Hi c6602 is the same name for sony Xperia Z :) regarding 4g , above both are one and the same, and 4g / LTE is supported , However you need to check with the network service provider that is your city covered in 4g circle and if yes then you would see a H+ sign as your data symbol instead of 3g :)

  • Hii, I had exactly the same problem and that was because the phone was rooted. also i remember that i had charged the phone(with car phone charger) with google maps turned one while driving almost for 500+ Km during a summer drive , after which the phone kept overheating . it almost died after the software update OTA was relased and the main reasons were Rooted phone and then upgraded version didnt support the hard ware because of which the issue persisted for around 2-3 months and then finally gave up, please check if my problem relates to yours , if yes then the sony authorised repair center are the best people to help as i got mine up and running now and iam happy

  • Awesome. Problem not at all.

  • overheating is an understatement!!!!OVERHEATING!!!

  • This phone is the greatest problem I have in my life ever since purchased. It get so hot that it can almost Iron out a STARCHED T-shirt. On H+ it overheats and power itself off 4mins later. I never enjoyed it. This is so bad. Feranmidaniel7329@gmail.com

  • You can upgrade it by using custom rom. But it is not very easy to do

  • are we getting it bro ?

  • ebay has the quad core z3

  • Well i searched for z3 6603 model everywhere only found dual sim 6633 and i hate dual sim phones so i got Z2 looks premium and love the led notification design :)

  • Go for Z3...

  • My lovely secondary phone still using it for 2 years now...but really sad that it's not added to SONY's Marshmallow update :( and now thing to go for Z2 or Z3! but if SONY did it and added it I will keep it for another year ;) still nice flagship

  • Superb phone. I have been using mine for about 3 years now and it does not hang, battery life is awesome. No complains. Good buy

  • Hiiiii can any1 plz tell me that how i start 4g on my Xperia Z 6602 Model? if it require some settings then tell me how to start 4g

  • Underwhelming brand

  • Xperia z need android 6.0 update

  • hi bro are we getting marshmaellow update for this mobile too?

  • Are you sure you bought an original?

  • I upgraded my Xperia Z C6606 (T-Mobile) 4.3 jelly bean to C6616 5.1.1 lollipop manually. Very simple to do just follow the instructions below ! My phone works great, no problem with the battery or anything else. Takes great pictures, the only downside is no built in wifi calling but there are apps you can download for wifi calling...

  • Had one of these, ran out of patients and threw it in the bin. Requires propriety software to read internal memory. Software was buggy on my PC - only worked once or twice. Felt more like iTunes than vanilla android unfortunately. Couldn't adjust camera resolution (was stuck low). Camera settings menu on the phone was different to online help :-( Comes with a lots of extra factory software. The covers for the plugs are fiddly and don't stay twisted out of way. They stop the USB lead plugging in all the way.

  • upgrade to v6.0 (Marshmallow)

  • Hi...frnds Which phone is better Xperia c4 or m4 again...?

  • don't buy Xperia Z go for Latest Mobile

  • I am facing lot of Heating issue and Battery drains completely in 5 Hours of normal images from Cam are coming blurry and Not so clear so please if any one have a solution share with me.

  • Z3 is superb phone man:)

  • I love this phone! Had been using it for about 2 years now and is completely satisfied with the xperia z! Best of Sony! Hope sony will think again about having marshmallow unto it because i know that it can still be pretty smooth even if it is an old device. If not then Im just gonna buy the Xperia z3 then

  • xperia z its a shame .......... all time motherboard destroyed . its very bad phone. dot buy it .....

  • Z series are the best:) The others have some issues like - auto shutdown, battery drain...

  • Why?

  • Why?

  • Z is better quality.

  • Hey guys, which one is better,M4Aqua or Z?

  • Best ever phone i have since last 3 years, awesome, No issues at all.. love it.. !!!

  • My Xperia Z LCD is cracked, and I'm gonna replace the cracked one because I love this phone!

  • You are right Sony phones are best Specially z series

  • No,I upgraded to lollipop Camera is awesome as before Nothing changed

  • Hands down the worst phone I have ever owned, I have had to replace it twice. The battery life is sluggish, the camera is slow and the apps crash all the time. My brother who has a newer model has had the actual screen not the glass break for no apparent reason. A flip phone would be a better investment than this phone.

  • The battery is s**t

  • This phone was the best but lollipop update ruined its camera performance and now i don't know how to get the old camera performance back..

  • why dont u use nokia 1110?

  • I think xperia Z need 6.0(M)

  • Ur phone is loker not original

  • This phone take video maximum 5 minute in full hd then it say over heat

  • HTC phones are better than laggy Samsung phones with bad battery life. Sony phones are amazing. Especially Z series...

  • wanna know which gits hotter first z2 or z too?

  • HA HA HA HA samsung and htc are in the low low low q phones

  • hey i just wanna know which gits hotter first z2 or z ? thanx

  • i disabled maps,google application,youtube,music,much tiny twitter and facebook links,wanna disable google chrome and use another browser-and uninstall a small browser-games what is called(talk) i dont remember right name but it is not google talk----delete much third parties now battery life good less heating at last i had a 360 security widjet on screen to free rama every time manually at last i stopped sony animated wallpaper always close wifi,location,data,bluetooth when no need it- i dimished sreen light too-----whish that helps

  • Guys can anyone help on wat background apps i can disable so as to reduce heating problems with my 6603 z

  • Buy it. Very good and durable phone. Heats due heavy usage. But I think isn't issue.

  • Yes, buy Z3. It is better than Z5... Search in YouTube - Z3 vs Z5 - and you will see that Z3 works much smooth. Z3+ has serious heating issues because of Snapdragon 810...

  • I wana buy this xperia Z? Can i? Suggest me plz

  • i made something that help save batt life i diasbled most google app that work in background all time removed many 3rd party app too i feel difference now even working heavy ,less heating issue happy satisfied now wish sony battery spend many years working cause it is fixed hardly in it

  • Thanks so much for the tip. What makes the Z4 bad? I will just get a Z3 then.

  • I definitely recommend xperia z, i never had lag on it since 2 years

  • it's good to go. you may buy this product...

  • i going to buy this phone.i need to know how it is

  • It a good phone at a time,but cannot be used roughly as Samsung.. My phone's board got short circuited last August..and board weakened my 2 batteries in just 3 months... Need your suggestion..help me out please

  • Z4 launched only for Japan. For other countries launched Z3+. But it is very bad phone. Buy Z2 or Z3 or Z5...

  • Honestly the xperia Z is awesome and highly durable. I have dropped it soooo many times and not once did it break! The camera is actually very good (both front and back) I'm wondering if the people complaining about it are really using the xperia Z. I upgraded it to lollipop 8 months ago n it works just fine! No dragging! The only draw back is the heating, but it hasn't affected my phone in any way. I will definitely upgrade to a Z4 or something

  • nope sorry dude I was hoping for it as well

  • Awesome phone! I have update to 5.1.1 but returned to 4.4.4 view days after, because Lollipop sucks (many apps doesn't work because of SD card permission). I start playing games at 12:00 until 15:00 with Wi-Fi on and still got 50% of battery after. If you have any battery issue, then your battery is almost dead and you have to replace it. I won't change this phone for another for couple of years, I'm sure of that.

  • no. Only Lollipop. Refer to xperiablog.net

  • i didnt get morethan 12 hrs.pls give me a solution

  • i didnt get morethan 12 hrs.pls give me a solution

  • Guys what about the marshmallow update for for Xperia Z is it coming or not ?

  • Im also on L5.1.1.. But My bat3 backup doesnt last for 1 day.. i need to charge it twice in a day.. No games only used it for call, sms n whatsapps. Others apps as FB, IG etc only on when needed..

  • Same. But I dropped the phone a a height of about 0.5 m. The phone still works but the screen broke, making it useless

  • Try factory reset phone

  • my xperia z is having speaking problem. it's not giving any sound but the alarm rings. it also works when setting notification volume levels. so, i don't know why but playing in the music or video app doesn't give any sound even when playing videos on youtube or facebook. if this is a software problem please fix it quickly Sony.

  • The Sony brand itself is pathetic in installation of new product. They have some worst service center which never picks up your call and customer care will also not have any clue that if installation will happen or not. They will only say that sir we are trying but will never be able to try because the service center guys don't listen to them. Waste call center

  • Nice phone works good in lollipop 5.1.1 nice battery backup..... no hanging problem........good sound quality........ back camera nice but front camera want to little improve....... good phone for this price....I am using 2 months

  • My experia Z gets hot wen lm using it,like brousing n other apps. Can some1 plz explain y?just few minute then its hot,cant even use camera.lt say your experaia is hot,let it cool down. I love this phone so much.

  • Just updated to the newest software 5 days ago and my phone battery suddenly died out of nowhere. the battery level is very erratic and it cannot be used or turned on without being plugged to the charger

  • Just updated software 2 days ago to the latest version. Updated and it Worked for a day now it just died. I dont know how to explain the issue. I am not sure if its software or hardware but just curious if any of you also have the same problem

  • have this phone since it came out, dropped it countless times, it has not broken. i've even threw it on tiles and it hasn't cracked a screen. this phone is a beast!!! i've dropped it in a bucket of water intentionally, yes it still works flawlessy!!! ignore all those trolls saying the screen cracks easily, what a load of bullocks. only con is the battery only goes through a day under heavy usage, but if you make the odd call or two, it'll last two days easily. Sony is very good with its consumers, they offer the latest lollipop android on this xperia z! thanks Sony for being awesome~

  • Had the phone since they released it, only dropped once, and I kept the software up to date. It has warming problems for the last year, battery life pretty poor, and has finally kick the bucket - sensitivity problems with the screen and difficulties at times with it charging.

  • Screen of my Z is flickering too much when I press slightly higher than normal.... not only the screen.. When I press in the two sides (downwards) it continues to Flickering.. What should I do? Need experts advice

  • 1. battery needs to be charged frequently for it drains too fast and would heat up badly 2. photos are too bad especially when taken at night or in the dark 3. it is durable on the other hand 4. good sound quality for sure since it is sony by the way 5. overall rating, iphone, htc, and samsung works better

  • I have been very disappointed since I bought the sony xperia z. After upgrading the android version, the call dialer does not work well; calls keep disconnecting every time I make a phone call. I also sometimes can't use cellular data on my phone and even when I can, not with all apps. Sometimes the phone just goes off and it also heats up! The camera is also terrible after upgrading; the images are all hazy and taking pictures at night is just a waste because it's like the flash does nothing! I am very disappointed and definitely won't purchase any sony products ever!

  • Sony is Great forever im using my xperia z for 3years no problem no warming or anyproblem ...keep your phone up to date...

  • BE WARNED! Sony waterproof ratings are not as they advertise Sony repair shop is biased and Sony funds them..water intrusion and phone was used within all perimeters of the manual, yet the repair shop reported a port must have been.open and recommend no replacement! These are uneducated and poorly trained technician from further investigation and Sony has terrible customer service.. Much like a bad insurance company the only deny your claims....phone is simply not a waterproof device.

  • Yeah...it's great phone....but u have issue with my camera lens from beggining since I have bought it....I have thrice replaced through company,but still the condition of lens same,specially night photoes are very bad.. Like it's been taken from 2-3 mp camera......and also as some said...it's get too hot...after continuous 1-2 hour use.....and Sony neeed to improve led flashlight for better picture quality at night....and last but most frequent complaint of most users.....is it's battery life.....needs frequent charging...

  • By now I have it for half year and it's going very good no errors, no problems, much better than HTC.

  • using phone and battery totally gone and switch off the phone, then place the charger and try switch on its not working. please help me....

  • No Matter what you throw or throw it this thing will take it, had it 3 year's, it's never missed a beat. Yes, it's getting old and out dated, but it still manage's to put dull moment into a great one, Screen isn't a strong point but is sufficiant enough, speaker is okay and profomance for 2016? It won't be awsome but it'll get the job done.

  • i used it since 2 years.superb phone

  • Device build is flawed with covers for charger and sim becoming a nuisance, screen randomly cracked one day and no touch worked ever again, Sony seemed to know this was an issue and replaced the device without ever requesting the original back... same issues with new device so traded up... Apart from that strong performer, might of gone for later models but got annoyed with crappy Android delays.

  • I have the sony xperia z1 compact Android v5.1 and it woeks awesomely

  • I've bought it today, used at 100 euro. Wonderful phone... :)

  • since using 2yrs.great phone ever..

  • same here buddy!! been using it since 2.5 years.

  • Excellent phone I still use today,only problems I've had a few times is the screen freezing up due to my heavy usage! As said before it does like to get a little warm when gaming but what do you expect from a 2 year old phone? I still love it and it serves my purpose so not going to changing anytime soon.

  • I have this phone since launch date, (2013. January) and my user experience is flawless. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop works great, cant complain, this is the best phone that i had.All accessories including the DK-26 dock, runs great. And a camera is awesome. Really didnt get disappointed cuz all time working Just fine. This phone i would gladly recommend.

  • I have Z3 and will not buy new phone at least 5 years. Don't buy new phone because the new snapdragon 830 is coming soon and will support up to 8GB ram.

  • is sonyxperia z magnetic charger theame with xperia z1

  • Well, for the people who were not lucky, I'm very sorry for them. I have the European (I live in Spain, so I don't know if there's a difference between the European, American, or Chinese version of the XZ): I have this phone since launch date, and my user experience is flawless (2GB RAM, 16 internal, 32 external, 5.1.1 Lollipop, All accessories including the DK-26 dock...) and I have friends who has the latest Samsung smartphones, and trust me, each heavy video game my friend and I installs, runs great on this XZ. It warms a little due to heavy gaming, it happens to almost all Quad Core phones. Live with it. But the Sony Xperia Z saved me tons of cash by not buying another smartphone. 4G, NFC, GPS, all working ok. (Unless you're a fisher and are in need of a very expensive GPS gadget...).

  • Sony phones are amazing. Can heat due heavy gaming. Don't heat due surfing internet.

  • I think buy sony z.is it good? Is it heat when use internet.plllz help me some one

  • Don't believe them my friend Sony phones are much much better and durable then laggy Samsung, crazy iPhone and many other phones. I have a Sony xperia Z3 and it is amazing phone with fast and smooth ui, perfect camera and most important excellent battery life.

  • If you don't want want to buy Sony phones then buy laggy and crazy Samsung phones. My Z3 works without any problem. Sony phones are excellent just use it careful.

  • Sony Plzz change the batry get down sound It scares me...plzzzzz update fast

  • Simmillar is me problem. Now is at guarantee.

  • Sony Plzz change the batry get down sound It scares me...plzzzzz update fast

  • P.S. Oh, I forgot! Problem number 4 - despite data calls being turned off, the phone did made regular daily data calls, really small 15-40k, but I had to change tariff plan, otherwise it was too costly (had a plan with 0 bites included). That had to be some software issue.

  • In theory it's a good phone, in practice - not so much. But there is a catch, that's not my personal C6603, it's from my workplace and I'm the third user as far as I know, guess there was a reason why the first guy dropped this phone and got another. Problems include (in the order of appearance): 1) GPS receiver is far from perfect, sometimes it works, mostly it doesn't, "GPS test": shown that it does register satellites but fails to get a lock, 2) a couple of times it seized to signal about incoming calls, no sound, no vibration, nothing, only a pop-up window appears, and I'm not the only one with this problem. Had to reset to factory settings twice, then this problem disappeared as suddenly as it started, 3) now I often don't hear people talking to me, while they hear me perfectly well. Restarting the phone helps for a short time, but seems I need to do it several times a day. So in summary - less than 3 years old Xperia Z is a really nice small tablet, with really good camera, big screen with high resolution and quite powerful hardware, unfortunately it all too often fails to serve as a phone. I was really enthusiastic about it being somewhat dust, water and slightly shock proof, as I often ride a bicycle, so I could get a cradle and put this phone on my bike while riding, but if the GPS doesn't function properly, then what's the point in doing so?

  • Likely our phone has really, really low charge, so it's "brain" has no power to turn on and direct the process of charging, this has happened to me a couple of times too. Basically, plug in charger as usual, leave it for a little while, then press and hold ON/OFF button, which gives an extra "kick" and helps the phone to rise up, usually it helps almost instantly, however some guys went so far as to fix the button pressed with a tape.

  • i'm using this phone for last 2 years, and now its suddenly dead..it's cannot be charge, no power at all..it's the second to have a problem..previously no signal at all..so i can claim for damage..now i guess i can't claim any from sony..so anyone can help? i like this for it durability..

  • No, mine runs Android 5.1.1, battery life is approximately the same as it was when it ran KitKat.

  • Are u telling about sony xperia z1 or any another model?

  • i see that some people are happy with sony experia others are bad luck so it,s afine peoduct try it and wish you are lucky--note that other cell phoes dealers sends bad opions here to destroy sony from market it is a trade war

  • will loliipop ruin my battery?

  • I also have a sony xperia z it have serviced only four times in guarantee period and i bring my cell phone to my nearest sony service centre and register my complaint immediately bt they demanded only rs12395 for the repair bt i dont agree with that and i made a complaint to consumer court and till today there is no replay with that complaint so guys plsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss dont buy this type of stupid china phonesssssssssss

  • Dear Friends I suggest you to do not purchase Sony Cell phones for following reasons 1. Poor product quality, like: Heating up of hand sets, getting frequent hang in between, automatic restart, etc..... 2. Poor service response by service provider 3. Poor response of Sony service call center. 4. No response of Sony Chairman(Mr. Kazuo.Hirai, email id: [email protected]) after many followups 5. Cheating customers in the name of up-gradation of hand set.

  • I want android 6.0 on my sony Xperia z When sony announced for latest android version it was about marshmallow not lollipop. Someone tell me pls, While our Xperia Z hardware can support android 6 Why ww can not upgrade? Even with money?? Silly...

  • The original Xperia! One of the best phones... great camera, 2gb ram and quad core allows smooth operation. Competes well with today's more modern handsets.

  • Iv had this since launch, yeah, they over heat, but it cools down quickly, i wouldnt advise playing any highend First person shooter games, it will burn you. This isn't from the processor directly, it's a by product of it being water resistant, which means its also air tight, no air flow, no cooling.

  • does it support quick charge 2.0?

  • Really ? Is it doesn't had any problem

  • I have used it for 2 years and I have noticed recently that it gets very hot especially when you are charging and using it at the same time.

  • Yes it is normal. Just some heat not too much heat

  • I purchased used xperia z, the old user had removed its anti shatter screen protector (Sony logo printed on it). My cell phone seems unbranded. Can any guide me where to buy its protector with Sony logo

  • I just want to ask if you can use the camera under water? Txn

  • I've purchased a second hand Z 6603, i'm currently charging it because it came with low battery level, is it normal to notice some amount of heat coming from the back part of the phone? I'm using a 2.0a charger

  • Revived this bad boy today. Battery runs straight down but I think with Stamina and some good use the battery will "learn" your usage and last longer.

  • i love everything about this phone but it has overheating problem, or is it just my phone's battery

  • The Camera in the Xperia Z is really good and I just love it! But does any of you face some problems in the compression of the photos in instagram or is it just me and this phone??

  • It has been 2 years since I bought this c6603 and it never let me down.. People say they have broken screens, overheating problems, blah blah.. This phone is built like a tank,plus it really looks stylish. I dropped it several times -once from about 2 meters height-, never cracked or scratched, not damaged at all.. Great phone with good amount of ram and an excellent screen resolution.

  • why my xperia z was heated evry 30 40 min use d

  • Hey you must use it careful and it can last longer. My z3 look like new phone because I used it careful.

  • Sony's devices is terrible especially this one Xperia z. After using it for more than 6 months one day i was taking it out of my pocket and its display cracked. I don't know how and there is more than 20 users are complaining about this issue at sony blog on disqus.com Never buys sony again. and the display price is about 250 $ if you want to know more about it.,write Xperia z display issue in google

  • i bought sony z last week.However, i cannot connect my sim. Any idea how to fix it?

  • hi frndz i want to tell us dis cell is good but battery is too bad not good go for z1

  • If the pc doesn't detect the the phone via the USB port, then activate the sleep utility on the pc. Press that window logo on the keyboard or touchscreen enter sleep utility in the search box and the program will present itself in the list of options. Select it and follow the instructions. It really is simple. :-) You may be instructed to connect the phone to the pc's different ports until you find the one that actually charges it.

  • Go for it...i hav bot it a yr bak n stil wrks great...mines stil jelly bean though...havnt planed 4 an upgrad yt...its stil a grt phn...

  • I have a z3 it is amazing phone. Z is good too.

  • Very less service center Service centers are running at office time Very less staff at service center Long line for repairing like rationing shop Long waiting time for even conveying estimation of repairing Repairing cost is approximate 60 % of phone cost overall, less service center, poor service, high maintenance cost, staff with high attitude Strongly Dont buy

  • Lolipop 5.1 is the best os on this phone. It fixed all the bugs in Kitkat it will over heat dont think it wont. The phone has glass back and running latest software ofc it will heat

  • There will be no android M on XZ I have this phone since launch day. Currently running stock 5.1 on it. Guys this phone is well over 2 years old. Google does not support more than that but Sony still gave us 5.1 Anyone who is thinking of buying this or any new low end phone. Just go for xpz without any problem. they are cheap and very very premium phone . Sorry bad English i am from Ukraine :D google translate

  • after updating lollipop. display was all was blinking.....

  • I recommend to buy Sony Z Z1 Z2 Z3 Sony Z series are amazing

  • Please sony! The specs of the xperia z is not outdated and I think it can still handle the android m smoothly! Please sony hear us xperia z loyal users!

  • I know the phone is a really great flagship and waterproofed device but for me I think you should buy a new one instead. (Another sony device again but its up to you)

  • try connect your phone with usb cable to pc.. does pc detect your phone and does it charges the battery? If not detect then probably the usb porn on your phone has been damaged.. if it detect on pc but not charging, probably the battery damaged

  • Hope Sony add this device to the list which will get the Android Marshmallow...if they did I won't think to by a new device!

  • Can any 1 help me in this regard...that my xperia z during call vol is very high that come out from fone even on lowest volume... Can any 1 has info?

  • just need ur suggestions guys...my sony xperia z just suddenly won't charge battery, using it for 1 year and a half,..brought it to sony service center and was told the repair cost would be $2,100.00 hongkong dollar...should I continue with th repair or just buy a new one?

  • it happens. you should let him in charge longer (like 2 hours) and then press for a few seconds continuously the open button. it will revive

  • Pls No one install Kitkate to Xperia Z.because phone heating heavy when using internet,camara open and gaming.so.kitkate not usefull Xp.Z.jelly bean is the better.

  • There are still some phones available in the market but it's quite hard to find this model. I would recommend you to go for Z1, Z2 or Z3 for better specs and also if you want to sell it in the future, the Sony Xperia Z will not get so much value for money like Z1, Z2 and Z3.

  • Is this phone still available in the market?

  • My Xperia C6603 appears to have just died. It's been on charge for over an hour and I can't seem to switch it back on. There is a red flashing light in the top right corner. Any idea what's wrong with this phone and how to get it working please? Ta very much.

  • Hey guys, there's nothing wrong with this phone and it has all the heating issues as other phones if you surf internet too much. I used this phone since 2013 until May this year, I never experienced any problems, unfortunately I lost it. But I'm thinking of buying it again and it has the best memory and camera:)

  • Buy z5 or m5.

  • Hey guys, my Xperia Z started to turning off itself. I turn it on and after ~15 sec during the boot, it just turns off without signs. If I plug the phone to charge, it is working but sometimes if I do a lot of tasks, it turns off even on charge. Is that the battery fault or something else? Thank you.

  • i think sony xperia z is good , but after update to lolipop, the battery to be wastefull and fast heat, 100% battery can't survive 4 hours if we use for chat and social media,

  • xperia z,the best phone ever.plz make it have marshallow update.for 5.1.1 no audio download sound app and make it control over the phone through settings it works.

  • This is the worst phone I ever had!!!!absolutely useless!!! Touch screen not working properly.... It's the whole phone is shit!!!

  • I really used to love my Sony Xperia Z1 before when one of my friend bought it for me from Saudi because it has a really good quality even though I soak it in the water for a minute or second still good but stranger stole it and I bought a new one from sm Clark Pampanga and the quality is not good first phone shit I had in my life is Sony Xperia Z1 for sm Clark Pampanga I just bought it and when I try to used it for picture taking under the water for sec it ruined it 3 times I sent it to fix after I bought it.

  • I love this phone alot... Now sony is not producing this phone anymore in the market... but it is the best phones i ever used ... =)

  • Just download Xperia Z firmware manually from Xperiafirmware.com , then flash firmware using Flashtool. Ask Google how to do it all! Google is the owner of Android, isn't it?

  • One of the best phones i ever used. The phone was launched with Jelly bean which was upgraded to Kit Kat, then again to Lollipop 5.0.2 and finally to Lollipop 5.1.1. A very good move by SONY. Very few manufacturers offer the updates to it's phones, Samsung is the worst. The Screen, Camera and RAM of Xperia Z are outstanding. Very good waterproofing too, I had washed my phone under tapwater many times. Very happy to use the SONY Xperia Z

  • DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. It's really a poorly engineered piece of crap. I've had way too many hardware and software issues that Sony of course refuses to fix. First of all, it's NOT waterproof; whatever you heard, it's a lie, because I followed all of the instructions yet my phone still broke regardless (It worked after a week though). They're actually banned from advertising it's waterproofing in certain countries because this problem occurs so much. Second, it has a tendency to suddenly die and become "bricked" meaning completely damaged beyond repair in some cases. This has happened 2 times for me, the first time I fixed it myself but now it happened again and it's completely dead this time. Sony acknowledged this problem but of course did nothing about it. So I reiterated, stay away from this phone or anything else from Sony because while they can make a good-looking device, the poor engineering and MAJOR issues you will experience won't justify the premium cost.

  • I loved this device using it since April 2014 But i think its time to change it since updated to lollipop the battery drains very fast once i used the mobile

  • Don't buy sony z can buy z1toz5 premium

  • I think yes..

  • sony mobile is lol ...why not update .... iphone is best...plz leave sony product

  • Thanks for your information

  • You gotta understand that the Xperia z has been supported for close to or more than 3 years. And it's definitely longer than what Google promises which is 2 years at least in terms of software os update. For Sony to keep supporting, it'll cost them more money which they have to consider before channelling it to certain phones. You can go online and read more as to why Sony would not upgrade it anymore. If they do, it would be a bonus and I'm happy with the phone as it is. I would say I'm satisfied with Sony and their software updates so far and the Xperia z is still a good phone.

  • Why Sony?!? Why? Please add Xperia Z Please its specs are not that outdated and many are still using and loving this original device which make your company popular.. Please make Android M the last for Z please

  • sony are evils

  • Really bad news that the xperia Z & Z1 will not get marshmallow update :( they will start with Z2!

  • After upgrading Sony z from Jelly bean in to Kitkat the proximity switch or sensor becomes useless. I have a problem now with my sensor. the time I press on the number to make a phone call the screen turns out black and I cannot control any thing because the screen is black until the other side I am calling ends the call. I don't know why this happened to me despite the fact that I very much take care of my phone.

  • Ever since the last update, I'm facing some network related issue, voice keeps on breaking up, there is No Audio when call is received nor there is any tone, when a call is dialed. Phone was never dropped or mishandled.

  • Xperia z c6603 android 5.1.1 problem is my phone kepps optimizing apps on starting... What should i do?? Sugg please

  • Hmm, Not sure about C series, but 1. Change it if it has warranty 2. Change your sim card 3. Reset your device to factory default 4. Remove SD card to see if problem solve or not. As you explained, I think you have some problem with sockets and they cause your device failure. Check them one by one to find the problem. But using warranty to change the device is best and shortest way

  • 1. Reset to factory default 2. Do not full internal memory 3. Use OFFICIAL OS UPDATE

  • Absolutely The Xperia Z is one of sony favorite devices ever.

  • All problems solved in Android 5.1.1 Go for it/trust it By the way All android versions need enough internal memory to operate well, do no full your internal memory, instead use SD card

  • It's just a joke The Xperia Z is one of best sony devices ever Just tell me what do you need, and all you need is here... 3G,4G,NFC,13MP CAM,SCREEN MIRROR,PLAY STATION SUPPORTS,GAME PAD SUPPORT, ALL NECESSARY SENSORS,WATER/DUST RESISTANT, SOFTWARE SUPPORT, GOOD PRICE, Hey, please If you're looking for a place to talk about your toys like Samsung then find a toy shop forum

  • Reset your device. Turn it off Hold up button + power Reset it Then if necessary update official android 5.1.1 Good luck Enjoy it

  • just reinstall the firmware using flashtool, or install the 5.1 lollipop.

  • Try to turn off stamina mode If itś om,after my update to 5.0.0 mine do the same.conflikt betwine mobiledata and stamina mode.hope this helt.

  • I own this phone I bought it on goods.ph it was 2yrs ago I always use this in pictures selfies and videos it is a multitasking phone that can match the Iphones nowadays it is very useful for me because I love to travel. The cam so clear that can see the far sights that I've been.

  • Sony xperia z

  • thanks , i will buy the sony

  • Sony Z is better than htc 816.but htc 820,826 are better than z. Don't forget Z Was the flagship in 2013. 816 was a midranger in 2014.820/826 newer devices. I recommend 826 or buy Z

  • im not sure what phone to get : Sony Xperia Z or HTC desire 816 ? any help what one is better ?

  • Wonderful device!!!! Better than others!!!!

  • My Mom Had This Phone, It Was a Good Phone Until It Had A Sudden Death Issue, It Got Fix, But Then, It Died After 11 Months, We Cried And Payed 1000 Dollars For The IPhone 6 At The Nearby Phone Store In Santa Ana, Then My Family Then Turned To Love Apple, My Family Did Not Trust Sony Anymore, I Am A Samsung Galaxy User Now, But I Will Never Forget When This Happened, So Tip, Be Aware Of The Sudden Death On Some Of The Phones, Because Then It Will Kill It.

  • All Sony devices have the same problem the bad hardware and the bad technical support but i think Samsung has the wonderful hardware but software isn't so good

  • Wonderful phone if you are still in jelly bean of the kitkat but don't ever update it to lollipop it's terrible at lollipop i am using this device since 2014 and my advice not to buy any un removable battries phones or get a battery st least 3000 mah

  • very good phone had it for two years looking forwards to my next upgrade z2 z3 z4 z5 big choice

  • Is this phone still in the market?

  • my Z is 2 yrs old, and she work perfectly, just want to change battery on this phone, nothing else, best mobile ever.

  • My Phone is stuck after updated latest Android version why?????????

  • i've been using this phone for more than a year n i really love it. this phone is amazing!

  • I purchased a Sony Xperia C4 on 25.07.2015 from Reliance retail. From day one i am facing some issue or the other on the handset. i gave a complaint on 07th August'15 my ref no: 1-20527611295 - problem was my screen went black and was not able to use any application. This problem i face within a week. The solution given by your technical support is the software has to be updated. For a week old do you think the software has to be updated ? Your technical people think customers are fool and will believe whatever they say, i did not have enough patience so i disconnected the call. again i faced the same problem i complained on 18th August'15 my ref No; 1-20754021663. and this time your technical people said that i need to use this phone only on safe mode. Again i am being fooled by your support people. i did not budge by their request. After paying 30,000/- should i use the phone only on safe mode. Pls advise. since yesterday my touch screen not working properly and my back keys keep moving automatically and eratically. Dont you think there is a serious problem on this particular device.

  • Mine also has the same volume problem. It was originally low and with the latest update it got lower. Plus the WIFI and mobile data are somehow messed up. It takes forever to connect now! No change in the battery life I think. But the phone got a lot smoother and faster.

  • are you sure battery okay

  • im using this phone for a while and i must to say that this phone is amazing, no matter what

  • there is no option

  • I have updated my T2 to latest android and its horrible I can't use my phone to make calls or anything

  • open the camera then go to the left side of display u will see another option of camera icon with round arrow then click u will get the front camera

  • i have battery problem. i charge two times per day for normal use. other things and updates so enjoyable

  • i have a problem..how to use its front camera?? there is no option to open it..plz help me out

  • afraid from new getting update from negative opinions decided to keep it at ordinary lollipop 5

  • Thanks sony&google android 5.1.1 released for THE XPERIA Z. :) Its really smooth and I really feel it. Some advanteges are: Better touch screen understanding. Better icons and practicality More app Choices,transfer to SD card Better battery consumption And one more thing that I'm not sure about it: Mixture of data mobile and wifi for better connection... It should happen to help upload if Google has a plan for global network (I'm talking about Googlebaloons project)

  • Updated to 5.1.1 same annoying mobile radio battery drain. It affects a good 10% of all lollipop devices and once you switch your data on the phone reacts like it's constantly trying to get signal and you get a 70% battery drain. It's a pity. With google not caring sadly back to 4.4.4 with double the battery life.

  • Updated to 5.1.1 this morning. Generally the device performance feels better. But the music and speaker volume got lesser, especially the external volume, it's damn too low I can't almost hear it in a normal noise office room. What happens with you Sony ? Did you actually test the f*cking volume ? It worse than previous update 5.0.2 in terms of audio.

  • I've updated my z to the latest android.

  • brought mine from first day released, already 2 and half year +, still working great !!

  • got my update notification 2 days ago to update in LOLIPOP 5.1. In their new update they informed me about Sound problem & battery drain problem they fixed. But after updating my C6603 into 5.1 I've got : 1.Battery issue didn't fixed yet.Draining so fast.Maximum I can use 5 to 6 hour with mobile internet & in wifi it is 4-5 hour maximum where's in kitkat I could use around 11-13 hour. 2.Ringtone/Music sound didn't fixed yet.In Speaker sound its getting lesser & lesser.So, sound problem didn't fixed yet.Ringtone sound is too low.Kitkat was best in sound.Atleast there was no sound problem in Ringtone. 3.But overall like gaming/multi tasking performance is good. Please solve Battery & Ringtone fast.Otherwise I need to move on from SONY XPERIA!!! Thanks in advance.

  • You have to wait a bit. It rolls out regionally and by stages. I'm still waiting for mine as well. Cheers

  • Hi guys i am not getting software update in update menu so how can i update to 5.1?

  • Frnd u will get the kingroot apk file on xda but if you don't know about root so you dont do that

  • After updating to 5.1 The BATTERY is okay now.. But the bad thing about this update.. Music player is no longer unique.. Its not a WALKMAN again its called MUSIC. Which doesn't make xperia users special. Like before.... But in general. This update is awesome

  • New update is ok.. icon can be change (Big or small) but not medium.. Very thing look smooth but Still looking xloud which in (kitkat) and why my camera can't go burst??

  • after i update 5.0 to 5.1 5.1 better than from 5.0

  • Should I updated 5.0.1 four my Xperia z !?

  • Iz lollipop version 5.1 update landed in z series

  • Very good phone ,used it for year now and it has been falled many times but still workes perfectly!

  • Please how do I do this KingRoot thing?? and how do I even get the app??

  • Daniel, my screen is cracked too. how much did it cost you to replace it. I really need to replace mine as well coz parts of the screen doesn't function.

  • bro can you tell me the full name of app

  • Where do we get the kingroot software? Please reply, my xperia z charging twice a day, thanks!

  • Great phone but really fragile, screen replaced twice , water proof protection was gone with few months...

  • Very bad battery backup When I using the Internet my phone only take 4 hour. When I listing music & play game it take 5 hour battery backup... Its very bad

  • The Sony xperia z is a really good and tough smartphone. Ive had this for at least two uears now Because FIRST it is still having the latest ota updates from Google (hope it can make it til Android M) Second is its water resistance and durability Ive had drop this a lot of times and sometimes the screen first but it didnt crack or anything and sometimes i used it on my swimming pool and nothing happens (except for the speaker but in just a few days the sound will come back) THIRD is its design and smooth performance even up till now and the both glass panels are simply gorgeous FOURTH the camera is above average and i used it in some of my shoots in photography and the screen is just sharp and vivid and LASTLY there are cons for it like the battery,viewing angles or the slight overheating but we can all manage it its not a big deal. For those people kept saying that its the worst phone ever or its garbage well your wrong maybe your the worst person that uses smartphones or maybe you truly doesn't deserve sony products. Go For Sony. Make. Believe.

  • any new for 5.1 lollipop guys? i tot where gonna get it in mid August...

  • Wat abt d lollipop version battery backup....

  • Why i m seeing black dots in my z camera....????

  • is it support 4g network?

  • I suggest owner to try rooting the phone with KingRoot software. Very easy, just one click. After that, get rid of bloatware and stop auto-star apps. Your battery will last longer by at least 50-75%. I used to charge everyday, now the Xperia Z can last 2 days.

  • Of course

  • I own this phone for a while now. It is big, it looks nice and I can only find some small problems to the phone. Pro's: -It has a very beautiful design and it was crafted to be as handy as possible. -By the price-quality criteria the phone is pretty much on top. -The screen is just big enough to fit my style. -OS update to Lollypop even though it is pretty old. -Somewhat water rezistent. -Charges very fast. Con's: -The phone gets really heat up if you use it while charging -The water seals are made of transparent plastic and could scratch. -The power button is very big and the button placement makes it not that easy to use by a lefthanded person. -Cannot remove backplate/battery. -Transparent plastic and glass-like material everywhere. If you buy it on black, every single finger laid on the phone will be seen immediately. I really like the phone despite all the con's and it is perfect for those who desire to buy a phone for multimedia needs. 9/10 from me.

  • HOW I can change my fronts simplely When am trying a app it tell me ur phn was not root.. Any one help me ds matter

  • this Sony Xperia z is more than a phone.......infact I like this phone

  • I wouldn't recommend playing intensive games or doing anything intensive during charging. The most is like WhatsApp and casual stuff like messaging or listening with music with the screen off. This is because the phone uses battery faster than it charges. You'll get a notification about it. So just leave your phone by itself to charge and use it when it's full or charged. Or it'll just drain until 1% and shut off

  • go to update settings your phone

  • I am using this phone from last 2 year. And i never faced any problem expect heating, after all this phone is awesome, i m a fan of xperia z.... . ☺

  • When I play a heavy game like nova3 my phone only take 1hr 20 mint then charge 1% & power off any one suggest me how I resolve it how I increase my battery life it's urgent

  • Buddy, this comment of yours is totally based on your personal interest. Maybe isn't the phone's fault, but the owner... I have used the phone for more than a year now and I'm happy with this mobile. My only concern will be the battery, could have been better. And the speaker volume, should have been better. But otherwise, no issue, doesn't hang, gets a bit warm while using it, which is a perfect norm for smartphones. I've dropped it into a small water pocket before, the phone has fell face down more than twice. Apparently, everything is working fine. The gps is good. The screen and camera is not that great, but definitely not bad at all. I'm a happy user of Xperia Z, thanks Sony. Keep rocking...

  • Which is bettr?m4 0r z ?

  • Pretty much one of the worst experience I have had with a phone. I purchased the two the first the screen cracked from a fall off of a dresser into the ground. The second phone Battery life is minimal, the sound is awful with or without using the speaker. The phone heats up to the point you cannot place it to your ears. I tried the updates and clean sweep and nothing help. Be careful with purchasing such a phone. I needed a two sim phone that was the original reason for the purchase.

  • My cell doesnt work so plz given information

  • Well, you'd better to take care of it, your complains are purely emotional, face it. My Z had been floor hit face down way too many times for an average smartphone and no damage to screen whatsoever. Performs well, no lagging, I can even open bottles with it)). Best of the best, Sony! Keep up the good work! Waiting for a new Z5

  • Can we replace xperia z battery with a official sony battery?Except its battery it is still king and i don't want to leave this mobile only for battery.pls show me the way..

  • the worst phone ever purchased in last 15 years, and the worst smart phone, the screen cracked twice and changed twice. I had so many phones and none of the screen cracked except this Xperia Z 6602. I brought this for 39000 Indian Rupees roughly 800 cad, and now I am using my Very Old Samsung Mini, and it works great.

  • Its Horrible experience handle with Sony My Xperia support team, They never share Escalation matrix and every time we needs wait in minimum 30 minutes to reach concern support team.they always give standard answers we will come back to you. repeated issues with handset heating and low voice and automatic switch offf.my rating for experience with Xperia team and phone in negative -200 out of 1to 5

  • when we got 5.1

  • Having owned the Z for more than 2 years now, I have no reason to buy any other newer model phone. It all works superfine, the charging has remained as was and it functions perfectly. I'm surprised by how the technology hasn't made the Z obsolete or old fashioned. My only complaint is the sound level from the internal speaker, not good enough, really. I'm putting it down to the water resistance built into it!

  • Please guys can anyone tell me what to do on my phone, ever since i upgraded to 5.0 os, my phone heats always and doesn't last up to 30 minutes when charged. Please i need your help. I'm no longer happy with using my phone. thank you.

  • DUDe sm prblm with me bt m using z1 nd its aftr testing the waterproof now i hav to pay 11000/-rs for graphics board , really pathetic condition cant read sms cant see who called me bt used as my idea ... ;)

  • Nope, it's a single sim

  • How do you upgrade it to lolipop, i've been updatinf my pc companion a number of timez but didn't receive anything..

  • How can I opened its charge place? Plz help

  • my sony z is verry best phone i like

  • no it doesn't

  • Can you check if radio turns on without earphone ?

  • Can you check if radio turns on without earphone ?

  • My Sony z phone's camera is too bad and It not focus on shooting picture

  • My speaker doesnt work It cant detect my ear Any help?

  • Dude please don't do more experiment on this coz i did n i paid 12000 Rs with taxes for mother board n screen n back panel.. Always check there is white litmus paper near charging nob will turn into red.. If ur water damaged

  • I have sunk my xperia z two days ago... it's really water resistant.

  • No its supporting guys

  • In c6602 there is no LTE

  • My Xperia Z is suffering from screen problem like when it's getting heated I can't see the screen. It's getting blur, pictures are jumping up and down - flickering issue maybe? Also the camera is full blur now can't even focus. Pathetic situation here;

  • Yes u r right

  • after updating to lollipop 5.0.2,the volume of the speaker has become quiet low......and no xloud or clear phase option in it. Kitkat was better as compared to lollipop so i recommend not to update your xperia z to android lollipop

  • Get a tempered glass or screen protector, which has an opening for the sensor ;-)

  • Remove screen glass or screen guard, ur problem surely solved.

  • Untill now i didnt received any update from lolipop 5.0 ..c6603

  • DO NOT think this phone is waterproof people and if you think that taking it back to Sony and expect moderate customer service, think again. It was in shallow water to take a pic, YES all ports closed, no salt water, not in for more than a minute and it fogged up and died. I guess Sony wouldn't do anything about it as then it would prove that they are lying. Apple wouldn't have any issue and would take the phone back or do something to help. That's why I went back to them. They at least will take care of their clients

  • I have a sony xperia z c6602.It had 2 gb ram but i did'nt checked and how to check its ram status

  • Today I faced a surprising answer from the Sony services agent because I went with a problem that my phone is not receiving the network signals properly...then agent says that this mobile is non repairable..then I shocked for a moment...and he says that it's an outdated mobile and you need to upgrade with z3 which is also non repairable so my question is that Sony mobile is for one time use only I mean if I get a problem then that should be thrown in to a dustbin...come on Sony this is not fair with the expensive mobiles...I'm a big fan of Sony but hearing this from servicing centre I'm very disappointed...:-(

  • i enjoy with experia z. i have upgraded to lollpop 5.0.1 works fne. alse some how reduced the overheating and battery drainage.

  • There's 2 variants of the xperia Z and i believe yours doesn't support lte. Only C6603 has Lte

  • how to turn on LTE on my xpera z C6602 ? any answer?

  • Do not use under water because its not really water resistant it will get damaged and the warranty will not cover it. Worst customer treatment by both sony and the agents.

  • No Dear. This is a very good phone.

  • I've upgraded to lolly pop.. looking good, but battery drying very fast and very heated

  • How to detect troubleshoot in the proximity sensor?..and how do i fix or get it resolved?

  • I go to buy this phone you says problams this phone problams

  • I have Sony Xperia Z, very nice and responsive phone. I am happy with its perforamnce and features.

  • Go to setting > Apps > Running. It shows u ur free and used RAM.

  • Still cant believe that im having this phone for almost 3 years!!! Longest so far. Lollipop makes a big leap, faster, and more gorgeous! Tip: if the charging time indicated in the lock screen is too high (normal time is 1 hour and 30 minutes) just replug the charger.

  • go to apps then running apps ....

  • A bad quality phone, in one year the motherboard crash. The worst phone I ever had.

  • Go to phone settings N' then Application Manager you'll see the Application you installed/ RAM status/ Storage status, etc... Or you can download CPU-Z from store so you'll get about your phone.

  • I have a sony xperia z phone and how to check ram status how i confirm a how much ram used and how free

  • sony experia z is very nice handset i like it

  • Settings\wifi\advance\(turn on first, second and last Items) I don't know why people do not reset to factory default their devices when they upgrade to new version. Believe me it solves all problems and it is the best way for all systems and devices.just copy your data on sd card and go for it

  • All new covers have it, just go a Sony shop and look for it

  • I'm not sure and I'm not interested you should ask about android M if you are looking for better version and what sony promised in 2014(we will bring you the latest version of Android for entire Z series)

  • When you jump to new versions Best way is: Copy your data to SD card then remove it and rest your device, this is really work because your device can have factory settings & enough free space to run smooth and fast Moreover : When you install android apps most of them want to access all your info to install,and if you don't accept then there is no agreement for installation they are always in running apps(using power) New version is a chance to remove them all unwanted apps together and a refreshing by reset.

  • It's in settings\system\accessibility

  • Heat means CPU USAGE OR BATTERY USAGES(both change and decharge), it doesn't come to wifi or bt, please check your apps and location services which will be active by internet network connection

  • I didn't test that But it can support all usb game pads & usb flash memories, also all items in Xperia connectivity with or without cable very well

  • It's because of big 5" TFT screen Use lower screen brightness, if you don't use internet, turn off data mobile, if you check your mobile evey 10-15 min then use Stamina mode,turn off all unnecessary item like apps and location and... In these cases you battery can handle phone even for 2 days and more

  • Yes, it does support usb otg

  • This device has an extremely bad battery. i charge long time but i use short time. help plz

  • is pendribe support through usb????

  • I loved my Xperia Z1 , until the software update. Since then ( about 3-4 months) I cannot use my phone for anything other than a text message or two. The battery drains completely once it hits 97%, yes 97% !!!!! At fully charged, taking just ONE photo using the camera app the battery completely overheats and drains. The phone then cannot be turned on or off, just get flashing screen. It has to be put on to charge, which is hit and miss as sometimes it will not recognize the charger. The charger port cover also has decided it will no longer close properly ( probably because it lives most of the time open with the dead phone on recharge) therefore making the waterproofing completely useless. As advised by Sony, I completed the PC fix using PC companion....this fixed absolutely nothing, everything is the same as before even though it wiped everything and took the phone back to factory settings. I would not recommend this phone to anyone, in fact I would actively and loudly recommend against wasting any money or time on it. I am upgrading in 4 days, Sony will not be on my list :(

  • when I used share it apps to other divice I use to send and receive 2k14 nba it is 100% received and for installing there is a problem when I want to install the game its says wrong or re install... my ram is 1gb availability and the share it apps is direct to sd card when receiving data or applications...can I have your comments...

  • I am facing this issue without bluetooth on.Bluetooth is off when i face this issue.I never use bluetooth and wifi together.Another solution?

  • i agree with you

  • 1 try out off Bluetooth and on wifi . 2 Use wifi without Bluetooth on I heaved this problem before and one off the options is worked for me

  • LOL using around 8 mounts or more no problem with that . even more, 3 week ago my screen after 1,8 years brooked up from one point to another sony service repaired it for free !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • This device has an extremely bad battery

  • Is this a dual sim card smartphone?

  • Try a factory reset after backing up all data, some of the updates to more than just sony have had a problem of kitkat remaining and running alongside lolipop and draining the battery and heating the phone a factory reset usually helps.

  • I have some problem of charging rubber seal.

  • Can't turnoff talk back option.

  • Lollipop battery drains quick over heats can sum one help

  • when xperia z got 5.1 lollipop version any one answer.

  • Where i can buy my xperia rubber seal flap at charging and headphone area for xperia z.. Plz this shit made phone waterproof (based on people experience who had sama problem).. Damn u sony.. u mislead us..

  • Aftr Updating to new software unable to lock the apps and blocking contacts is not available. So disgusting it is tht we do not have the option to block the contacts.

  • Turn off all Google Apps... go to apps, running apps, force stop all google apps. restart phone. you'll see a huge difference in battery life (exception of game playing).

  • Why are people still askin thus question! Ole info request!!!

  • i now have battery issues after updating to lollipop any help??

  • okay this is what you do go to your pc have pc companion installed and then go support zone then click phone software update then a windows pops up and there is an option to repair phone/tablet click on that and follow the procedure what it does it factory resets your phone and reinstalls the software hope this helps

  • the charging port on the xperia z is not the same shape as the micro usb used to charge it, after only 3 months use the pins have become damaged as you have to try it to see if it fits if it doesn't then you have to put it in the other way round thus damaging the pins its a design fault but sony will not take responsibility for it and ask 47.00 pounds (sterling) to repair it or 22.00 just to send it back unrepaired I will never buy another sony product

  • So true, my phone cracked twice i9n my pocket, paid the first time, less then two weeks later my second one cracked again, and Sony did not want to meet me half way. Will never buy a Sony phone again.

  • I'm using this device from 27 march 2013. Thinking to change any new phone,but don't have any reason to do so.6 month back I faced problem in my ear speaker but it starts working normally on its own,and 2 days back something happens which I can't believe till now,my phone's USB & headphone port cover(waterproof flaps) are not working from last one year due to there wear and tear and white stickers are turned into red.So 2 days back I faced sudden rain in which my phone got wet,water flows inside through USB and headphone space,then water droplets are visible in lenses of front and main camera,USB charging was not working headphone was not supported supported,proximity sensor was always on due to which it was hard to make and receive calls.I thought now it's gone and will need huge amount and some bad days at service centre.But in withing few hours each problem solved on it's own first charging start in two hours, then after one more hour proximity sensor stared to work normally,and then headphone supported,after 7-8 hours water droplets also disappeared from camera lenses. I never thought this device can withstand upto this limit,and also my phone has fallen on marble floor,road but nothing serious happen on body except few scratch and wearing of corners.

  • connect through PC using SONY PC Companion you ll get official update

  • yess......its supported LTE

  • If you have issues with the Sony xperia Z go somewhere else stop posting comments that are subjective, have been using sony for many years and it does not disappoint me.

  • LTE network support hai plz help me

  • Never buy sony mobile please they are not provide any service and worst mobiles they are selling in the market....showing good advertising on tv but fake everything

  • Wast phone software which Sony is using is to worst every app it will hangs low memory

  • Advantages: +Waterproof +Design is very modern +Very good battery performance Disadvantages -Galery "PIMPmyPhotos" algorithm. After drop photos to desktop...all "MAGIC PIMP efects" are disappear and i am wondering why my photos have so low quality on PC....

  • Its coolll

  • Hi everybody , i'v noticed recently that there is a video player update on sx z which is 9.3.A.0.4, however when it finishes downloading and starts installing a message pop up saying that ''COULD NOT INSTALL'' !!! any idea ?

  • Same thing happened to me. They offered me extended warranty but useless because they void it. Will not use sony phones ever!

  • Factory reset is must after update...

  • when i update my phone xperia z to android 5.0.2 lollipop it start damage overall..i cant plays games anymore because when i open the game it sad "unfortunately your game has stopped" i just update my phone 2 month ago and until now it cant open the game..moreover,my phone getting hot fastly and reaching 51 celcius..besides,when i open facebook,wechat,instagram etc,this phone will restart by itself..before i update my phone to lollipop..it works veru great and dont have any problem..after i update my phone to lollipop..various problems come..thats not all,my battery life decrease fastly and when i charge this phone,the battery improve very slowly and my phone getting hot..currently i use galaxy s3..sony phones very sucks

  • I am really sorry about your phone and you are right But Z is water resistant only for 1 meter pressure and as you you said its not enough good to swim with it after 5-6 months and as you said it's kind of advertising Anyway The Xperia Z has IP57 and it can protect your device in 15cm to 1 meter Take q look at this my friend : I hope it helps you in future.

  • It released about 3-4 month ago. There is 2 way to update your device 1. Use pc and PC COMPANION SOFTWARE 2. Wireless update in your settings In both cases full battery charge and free internal storage are strongly recommended

  • Best version for now is, 5.0.2 But if you don't want to update your device to lollipop then 4.4.4 kitkat is also very vey nice Be careful to use OFFICIAL rom

  • My Sony Xperia Z phone obtained water damage and is now not functioning. I find this unacceptable as the phone is advertised as waterproof enough for the company to state it is capable of taking underwater video. I understand that all connections must be sealed tightly, which they were, and yet water still got inside my phone and caused damage. After calling the support center I was told that the phone would not be covered for this kind damage under warranty more than a year from purchase . This is very disconcerting due to the fact that the device malfunctioned, not as a result of misuse/ abuse but as it not preforming in the capacity that the company states. Under this logic the phone should really be advertised as waterproof for a year only, being if any water damage is sustained by the phone the company will not take responsibility past one year. This is very upsetting.

  • I am still waiting for lollipop 5.0.2 update its 11 july 2015 plz tell me about release date

  • Tell me which previous software is best for xperia z plz tell me

  • this is the phone very good

  • To update to Android 5.0.2 for now and next 5.1.0 later there is 2 ways : 1. Use PC and PC COMPANION Software 2. Go to settings, about device, check for updates Then download it and start upgrade with full charge battery For maximum efficiency I recommend you to format your device then and reinstall all apps again again. One important things for all smartphones to run smooth: DO NOT FULL INTERNAL STORAGE, and use sd cards for apps and your data instead.

  • It's almost 7 month since I bought my Z device and there is nothing bad about it. It's pretty nice 5" multi-touch 4G water resistant built-in battery that can support android 5.1 pretty smooth plus NFC and play station supports and... I know why some people are complain about such pretty device : Thats because they didn't use OFFICIAL ROMs They didn't use good apps They didn't use good sd ram And thats why they are complaining... I CAN CLEARLY SAY THAT: AT THIS PRICE, NOTHING HAS A CHANCE AGAINST THE XPERIA Z. By the way , its possible to change the battery in 1 min easily if necessary .

  • My experience with XPERIA Z is very bad I think you should look for alternative phones

  • switch off your mobile press power button and volume up button together then you'll get commands use thhem

  • Guys during these days whenever I turns on my xperia z it always says Upgrading Android, Optimising 1 of 1... And it'll last for 2-3 mins.. What will I do?

  • This is the most expensive piece of crap I have ever bought I have sent it back FOUR times! It has port issues, charging issues, web access issues. I hate this phone I am very disappointed in Sony usually their producs are amazing I won't buy a phone from Sony again. And Good luck getting any help with it.

  • Is XPERIA Z a bad experience for you too? I bought one XPERIA Z in August 2013 for 499 pounds after 9 months the batteri did not last more then 10 hours. After 14 months the charging slut broke could not recharge with USB cable.Had to use Sony Charging dock after 18 months the mobile charged 100% but as soon as I removed from the dock it turned off, in dock function without problem. I am told the batterie only last 24 months?? And you can not change the batterie?? Now PHONEHOUSE ask for 200 Pounds to repair the phone in the garanty time? Bought a XPERIA J while my mobile was controlled by PHONEHOUSE,2 months old already big problems,eats batterie,very slow responding on commands,album and other programs do not respond ??

  • yes u can buy experia z with any reservation i used this set & found it is the best mobile in competitive market even i prefer it on any samsung or htc latest versions.

  • Eeeehhh??? give it a rest now... SONY no more sell this phone!

  • V.V.bad software lollipop battery issue is main factor,& cell also heat up. Previous software is v.excellent and good work in this cell battery time is awaysome. I request to the honorable sonys department officers to change the software.

  • Xperia Z won't updated to android M. Sony is disappointing us!

  • My backdoor adhesive lost! How regain waterproof??? Help me guysss:(

  • Dudes After upgraded to Lollipop, just one thing: battery drains a little bit faster. Perhaps a Stamina app not as efficient? But for all the people who complain with "charges slowly", it's trolling. Same battery charging time, better functionalities. More lags than with KitKat,but never lived any lag with KitKat so not a real problem.

  • Xperia Z is really good. Its camera quality is excellent. After lolipop update, i had some issues with my phone 1.battery was not charging 2.Heating up 3.few crashes I called up the service center, they asked me to go for software repair, and i did It worked, now my phone works without any trouble and lollipop is awesome update. Even the battery drain was resolved

  • It takes morethan 8 hours to full charge is there any solution this thing happened after update of lollipop ..... It's there any solution.... Help me friends...

  • Surprised to see people complain about slow charge and fast battery drain. I only use my phone to make calls. Takes about 2 days before I charge it again. But charging is same as before. No issues there. The only issue is the sound quality. Very low as ringtone and playing music

  • Fix: for a slow charge, try restarting the phone, then re-plug the charging cable, dont use the phone while charging, it affects the charging time estimation Found on the lOckscreen.

  • have had my C6603 upgraded to lollypop 5.0 and guess, battery is taking long to charge and draining fast. i love my xperia and also lollipop. help us SONY.

  • Xperia z is nice phone for seeing in pocket.i also updated to lolipop. user interface is nice but battery drains very fast, it takes too much time for a full charge(4 hours). 80-100% it takes more than one hour. dont know what to do.......

  • i have updated to lolipop im getting sound very low plz improve it n the device is vry good

  • After update to lolipop i have some issue also, charging is very slow, battery drain fast and wifi cannot work. Sony have to resolve this problem quickly since we suffered here.

  • Please don't go for Lollipop (Android 5.0) with Sony Xperia Z. I have done it and screwed up my phone. Charging is very slow. It takes up to 20-22 hours now. Discharging is very fast. Does not last even half a day. If you switch off your phone and charge it then takes two hours.

  • am using sont z its awesomr no issues,

  • It was really nice. I enjoyed it before my phone was stolen. Battery drains fast but surely it will give you a comfortable feel! The larger icons might annoy you though...

  • What about the battery, gsmarena showing 48 hours endurance rating. I need user reviews about battery, is it good or bad Thanks in advance

  • Battry drains so fast? I think its tolerable. Now, if your charging status is like 4-5 hours (indicated in the lock screen while charging, try to restart your phone and charge it again. Might help. Mine jumped from 5 hours to just 1:30 minutes before full charge (from 5%>)

  • I updated my Sony Xperia Z C6603 to Android lollipop 5.0.2 and noticed some good and bad changes. 1. faster response and neat interface. 2. device heating is now minimized. 3. faster charging up to 80% for 30min from empty battery then it will slow the charging process. i completed 80-100% in 1hrs and 45min. 4. video quality is better but draining more battery than before. for those who experiencing bugs, try to update thru PC Companion. If happened to be that you updated over the phone do phone reset and choose erase everything, then re-install all the applications that you want. It solved my hanging problem and some applications malfunctioning.

  • the problem is that, the android version your phone is using has no update of lolipop. u remain with an option of flashing the phone with lolipop using a computer.

  • Dear Sony: Have upgraded my Sony Z to 5.0.2. 1st issue, it keeps on missing and gets stuck on the messaging part, i.e. when typing sms the letters do not show on the writing pad, have to press the power button twice with a short pause and then the keyboard starts giving the response. 2nd issue, when trying to delete the message conversation, you need to press and hold for a short moment which then shows the delete button, after pressing it the "deleting conversation" message appears which is an ongoing process that never stops, unless you press the home button or power button. Please advice

  • Wifi issue (can't turn on Wifi) after update to Lollipop solved. I'm using repair software from PC Companion and it worked. Don't forget to backup your data first (Again, I'm using PC Companion for backup), because you will lose data in internal memory after using PC Companion's Repair Software.
