Excerpt: I purchased this model 2 days back, does anyone else have issue with earpiece sound, I'm getting hissing background noise during calls, but when on speaker, no issue, other person can hear properly Providing 3 stars as it doesnt make sense carrying a mobile which doesnt do call function properly
Summary: I would only recommend this phone to someone intending to use the T-Mobile/AT&T platform. I made the mistake of thinking unlocked meant it could be put on any plan. The person who laughed at me in the Verizon store happened to be a good friend, so I wasn't upset, but I intend to return/sale this item.
Summary: I like the phone its nice the camera is good and it runs smoothly. The only bad thing about it is that its has a factory defect on its powering system. Mine began shutting down when not connected to a charger then i realized that its happening to several of the new Xperia models. Just make sure it has a warranty when you are buying it.
Almost perfect powerhouse multimedia phone. (Edited)

Summary: I originally ordered an international Z but due to a bad experience with the network, I returned it. After noticing the LZ would come to the US with LTE, I started to research it and it began to grow on me. In the end glad I went with the LZ. Like the Z it has a monolithic classy front but this version is very compact which is impressive given the huge five inch display. In the hand it feels like a Samsung galaxy 3 which has a much smaller screen so again impressive.
Summary: The Sony ZL C6506 LTE 4G Model is a very good smartphone.Everthing works fine , apps install and uninstall very quickly,GPS / location services and proximity sensor all good.Media sharing apps works fine.Basically everything work as expected.To cut a long story short (1) design 10 /10 (2) build 10/10 (3) Screen and graphics 10/10 (4) connectivity 10/10 The cons only 1 , Battery / Power issue.
Summary: I have been using the phone for over one month & all I can say is, I had quite an experience; appreciated its power & rich feature & was too bug-down by nicks. I would not go describing it any further, but, rather jot down my good experiences & otherwise: PROs: 1) Quad Core Processor (1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro) With GPU (Adreno 320): Makes the phone very powerful. It will handle almost anything you throw @ it. AnTuTu Benchmarking gave me a score of 20,462!
Summary: there's only a 0.4 inch diffrence in screen size and a 5 mp diff in camera... butt this doesnt really count since a higher MP doesnt matter much... the underlyning feature of sony SP is its 1.7 GHZ processor! Sony ZL has 1.5GHZ where as SP has 1.7GHZ!!! and the surprising part is SP is 10k less than ZL! i feel people should go for SP since not every will use their phones as a cameras...
