Summary: This is quite nice phone: fast, not many glitches, but still some. Problems: Photo quality was quite good in the beginning, now seems a bit worse (don't know the reason. Cellular reception is not stable: in some buildings or far from tower signal is too weak.
Summary: I got this for ~$250 new. I have to say, it is an excellent mid-ranger even though the phone is already a year old from launch. I don't know why this phone isn't more popular.

Summary: After some time has passed in having my new Sony Xperia Zr, I'm impressed! I can complain that Play Services can get frustrating in being a battery hog on this phone at times,... that and Media Services too. But, with some light tinkering I got to work around it.
Summary: "Following up 5 years of Iphone use, this is my first Android. The ZR is nice and chunky, you can feel the build-quality (4 out of 5) Screen is crystal-clear (5/5) and the speed is okay (3/5). Nicer to hold than the bigger ones out there. Front camera is a shame.
Summary: Out of the box, I was expecting less. Historically, I have used Motorola products. I'm coming from the Moto Droid Maxx which was a 2 year disappointment. Quality was a major expectation from Xperia, however, I did consider the price point for the phone.
Summary: Great build, fantastic camera, the phone battery lasts up to 3 days in stamina mode with light usage (calls + e-mails), plus waterproofing! Really liked Sony customizations on android. On cons side: - screen seems to have no antistatic coating so it attracts lot of dust.
