Re: should i buy it??

Not Xperia Z. I bought Xperia ZR. I must hand it to Sony for having such an honest forum where you can get reviews and comments from earlier users to understand if you should buy a gadget or not. Unlike the other companies, this is a very good medium to get users together who help each other.


Personally, I like the Xperia ZR. Good display, excellent sound quality of the Walkman App and it works very well. Only it should not be dropped onto the hard floor. If you do buy it, buy with a good back cover. My next objective after 1 year is to try out Cyanogen Mod on it. I do not think it will get Android L. After all, an 18 month old handset is treated like obsolete with no patches or upgrades. Not even security patches. Hopefully they change the patching architecture some day from replacement of firmware each time to just allowing users to update specific packages. After all, Android base is Linux only.

So much hate in this thread. I have the zr. Version .101 with android 4.3 ran for months without a reboot (until my usb cable from Asus failed). A had occasional hiccups with Bluetooth, if I didn't rely on Bluetooth I would be perfectly happy. In my opinion Sony do have the most beautiful customization. 


If you are happy with sp I don't think the upgrade is worth the money, save up for the next version. 


If you are not satisfied with the installed firmware version it's easy to downgrade.
