    What is the exact difference apart from the screen size from XZ?

  • srisanandreas

  • Widget

    Not sure but: Front facing camera VGA vs 2MP on Z

  • Widget

    And 8GB internal storage vs 16GB on Z

  • Kima

    and I think removable battery…

  • rus_media

    Huge box for today’s phone :)

  • Akshay Gupta

    So basically this is what a phone should be. Proper screen size, removable battery, expandable memory and water resistant. Would prefer this over the XZ.

    Fuck you, Sony, ion still hasn’t updated 4.1, who would dare to buy your products. Fuck you sony. Eat shit.

  • polpol

    I don’t get it why Sony is so desperately promoting the Xperia Z and don’t give a choice of ZL or ZR :( Maybe it’s not selling as good as they make us think… I’d really like to buy ZR – it’s perfect for me.

  • saif

    India owns all Z,ZL,ZR,tablet Z. Suddenly Sony has stated prioritising India. Not only launching all models but also earlier than other markets

    So I guess it will hit the german market.

  • InspectorGadget80

    That’s a nice commercial. I may buy this phone since its only 500$ when i’m planning my trip too India.

  • tom

    i dont think so… Xperia L till now hast launch at any market in Indonesia.

    and i think ZR probably hit the market in indonesia in late 2014 according to the scum bureaucracy and management. IMHO

  • sealane
