Xperia ZL C6506

Intelogy, Newegg
10 July 2014
  • Summary: Really nice phone that supports pretty much any GSM network out of the box including LTE. The setup to get on T-Mobiles network took less than 5 minutes. Initially the phone had 4.2.1 and I was worried when I saw the battery life sink like a stone with very little use.
  • Pros: The Swiss army knife of phones. Beautiful display. Comfortable to hold. Fast quad core processor. 4.4.2 Kit Kat.
  • Cons: Weird battery issue out of the box (resolved). Thumbprint magnet.

Bad Swype algorithm

J. Arango, Amazon

  • Summary: The phone looks great, it works well, and the infrared port that allows it to be used as a remote control for so many devices is priceless. That being said, the speaker volume is very weak.

One of the best yet.

Ike Mcfadden "Ike Mcfadden", Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: The Xperia ZL is my 4th Xperia phone, and it's the best so far. Prior, I've owned the Xperia Mini Pro, the Xperia U, the Xperia T and now the ZL. Though I was sometimes less than thrilled with some of the prior incarnations, I'm happy to have stuck with Sony in order to get the ZL, which is one of...

excellent, except nonremovable battery

Robert M., Newegg
29 July 2013
  • Summary: A larger, swappable battery pack would unlock the missing potential. Grossly overweight Americans should stop focusing on the thinness of their gadgets and instead focus on the thickness of their guts.
  • Pros: T-Mobile/ATT LTE compatible. Exceptional display Very responsive Sony PC Companion software excellent Large, high res screen Replaces 7" tablets Fast data Versatile, state-of-the-art connectivity No hangs, no glitches. High quality construction. unlocked GPS receiver one of the most sensitive I h...
  • Cons: Support staff ignorant. I called tech support to find out how to tether it via usb. It turned out to be markedly different than a TM506 flip-phone. While tech support was trying to get off the hook by telling me I had to contact Microsoft, I figured it out, and taught them. If a wifi access point...

Not like everybody else's phone

Paul N., Newegg
25 July 2013
  • Summary: Would be a 5egg if not for the cons. It is more like 4 and a half egg in my mind. I do recommend this phone. It is nice to have something different than everyone else.
  • Pros: Crystal clear screen -- viewable in strong daylight; above average battery -- heavy use throughout business day will require recharge before going out; smooth UI; very fast
  • Cons: Price is still a little high, but that didn't stop me from buying; the back feels a little cheap compared to others; cannot remove battery
