    Finally I got Sony Xperia ZL and believe me it’s very good phone in terms of performance, camera, audio sound in earphone, fast internet. The only drawback I found is non-removable battery. What will happen when the phone will hang and need re-boot? Any idea Gogi ji and what will happen when battery need to be change?

      Sanjaym, Many users are worried about how to reboot the phone when it gets stuck and specially when the battery is built in. Well all of the tablets that are available in the markets come with built in battery. There will be an option to reset just like on tablets. Probably press and hold the power button for a longer time and it should shutdown the phone. Usually the battery life is more than that of the handset if used property. If need be you can get a new battery from service center. Devices with non-removable battery really doesn’t mean that you cannot change the battery, it is just that the battery compartment is sealed and users cannot access it.

    Gogi ji or anyone pls reply.. . one more thing …Xperia ZL or ZR, which one is better and why bcoz price r same for both……

    • Gogi Rana says


      ZR is with 4.6 inch screen with 1280x720p resolution + VGA front camera and 8GB storage.

      ZL is with 5 inch screen with 1920x1080p resolution with 2MP front camera and 16GB storage.

      Rest features / hardware is the same. Depending on what you want 4.6 inch screen or 5 inch and if you are more into gaming then ZR will be better else go for full HD resolution.

      Samsungs interface and display is much better as compare to sony. Also price of samsung is proper and not costly as that of sony..

      • sangram says

        Most of the techies will not agree with you AMIT.
        Samsung puts too many layers over original android which is quite irritating. Sony’s UI is innovative and intuitive.

        Sony devices have Great build and that’s why people don’t mind paying a bit more for them.

        • Amit says

          and still u see Samsung’s everywhere? I do agree that sony has best hardware and quality, but still it fails to impress people mainly bcoz its not as attractive with its price and interface.

          If u look at the menu screen on sony, u will see a deep layer coat behind menu icons, which doesn’t look natural.. tats what i mainly dislike
