Sim Free Sony Xperia Z Mobile Phone - Black.

<p>The Sony Xperia Z's 5 inch display, has surprisingly compact dimensions, due partially to the use of on-screen navigational buttons and the rest to the skeleton frame.

"I used to always have sony phones but then I moved to different makes like blackberry and Samsung however when this came out I couldn't resist and it seemed a little too good to be true. however, I wish I stayed with sony. by far one of the best phones I have purchased. the features are good, the design is lovely. some think it might be to big but it isn't its perfect. not for everyone obviously but definitely worth buying if your contemplating it. no problems with it whatsoever. RECOMMENDED! :)"

"The first thing you'll notice about this phone is it's size, it's a whopper but with a 5inch display you cannot expect it to be small.
Operation one handed while possible is fiddly.
I would recommend a case, it has glass back and obviously front, if trying to use it one handed it could be a little slippery and I'm not sure how well it would cope with a fall and have no desire to find out.
This won't be an in depth technical review you'll find those on other sites, this is a user perspective.
I've had the phone about 2 weeks, probably enough time to be able to give a fair review.
First impressions were that it was easy to set up and it is a very fast phone, it is supplied with a rear and front screen protector which I put on straight away before I even touched the screen or back.
battery life is very good I have found but I am not a heavy user in terms of calling and texting if you used it a lot I think you may find it requires a charge through the day possibly, I charge mine each night and it usually has about 40-50% charge left after a day.
There is a battery stamina mode which will increase the battery life but it does switch off some functions like the warning LED so if you like the LED feature on your phone leave the stamina mode off.
Screen Quality - very good indeed but I will be critical here and say that I have not found it to be as vibrant and sharp as my old Samsung Galaxy S3 was, sadly the S3 died on me and had to be replaced otherwise I wouldn't be writing this review.
Call quality - excellent, very clear.
Camera - very very good, an area where I think Sony are very strong with their phones.
Speaker - not great I think it would be easy to miss it ringing in a noisy environment and it's not great when watching videos etc but it is adequate but could be a lot better. Fortunately the vibrate feature is quite good so hopefully not too many missed calls.
I would recommend that out of the box you perform a software update (I did mine over wi-fi) then a factory reset then set it up. I didn't do this, I did the update then set it up with my settings, apps etc. only to find the LED wasn't flashing upon receipt of a message etc. After checking online I found that it was due to the stamina mode being on and the recommendation was to switch off stamina mode then restart the phone, this didn't work for me so I had to reset the phone and set it all up again, no big deal but a pain. Now it's working fine for me.
Overall and as a fan of Sony phones I'd recommend this phone, it's got the biggest screen over it's main rivals and enough features to compete with them.
Obviously the water proof capabilities are a plus but I've not put mine to the test yet."
Yes, I recommend this product.
