Summary: wont buy similar things again, don't take such so call waterproof or water resistant too seriously. i like and have quite a few sony products, when i lost my previous phone to water i selected this zr as replacement, what it attracted me most is the up to IP58 level of waterproof ability, and a physical camer shoot button which make under water photo easier, the under water video captured by zr on youtube encouraged me much to make the choice.
Summary: Completely dissapointed with the phone. It suddenly ran off after only 5 months. Bluetooth did not work since the beggining, mobile data stopped working after a few months too. And about a week ago it started to shut down restart by its own. I contacted Sony and Galactics, but none of them gives me a solution. I wasted $300.
Summary: The phone is great. But Sony customer service is awful. I sent my phone to get fix under warranty, or at least they promised me to let me know if it s still covered or not, or if there would be any charge they promised me to let me know. I sent the phone with Fedex. I got signature of their employee. But after 3 months no one gave me straight answer. They promised me to call back or email back, but they just lied.
Summary: I bought wat was supposedly a new xeperia ZR new in box but wen I got it ya it looked new but there's a tiny line crack at the top and it won't start from the page languages needless to say for over 300 bucks im very unhappy customer and want my money back. You can't make some not new or damaged look new and sell it and think I'm not going to see it. Pls give me my money back or in return wat I paid for that would work and I will remove my comments.
Summary: bluetooth is not working due a hardware problem. I thought sony was a serious company but after several days trying to solve this issue I acknowledged this product had lots of problems regarded the bluetooth for over a year and sony has been changing the cell phones several times (not solving the problem)to those who report the problem but they will send a phone that probably will have the same issue. So, I'm going to give it back and maybe try with a different brand.

Summary: Bluetooth and wifi HARDWARE problems out of the box. no fix for it, google it before purchasing! (pushing on the back case clips back in the component to make it temporarily work) This review is based on a four day experience with the phone on at&t, I am a power user so I had plenty of time to get frustrated with it.
Summary: ---UPDATE 22/dec/2013---- After several weeks with this phone I must say...it sucks!!! This phone will get slower and OS will "freeze" after several apps installation (even when is Quad-core and memory is only 50%-60% busy). Bluetooth worked about 10 connections...no more! Blue tooth simply stop working while was connected to my SONY FST-GTK17iP personal audio System; it started to sound choppy and then disconnected, it will not connect any more to any BT device.
