  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have used Samsung Galaxy S, S Duos and S advance…and my friends have Grand Duos, S3 and Nexus…So I have a fair idea about all these models as well…
    I have been using this phone for almost 3 weeks…and now I feel I am in a good stage to give a comprehensive review of this phone and help others who are contemplating of buying this phone…
    This phone is AWESOME with its fair share of cons…and the thing which surprised me most was – people who have not used the phone are talking about the cons of this beauty…
    So let me do one thing and start with the cons and point out what is misconception and what con you might actually feel -:
    1) Front camera is VGA – seriously front cam is used for video calling and no video calling app supports HD quality…so its camera is gud enuf to make video calls and that won’t be a big problem..also it works pretty good for face detection..
    2) Call volume is low – This con posted by some users of this phone really surprised me…as either they are using the smartphone for the first time or they are pretty DUMB…Actually sony has provided an equalizer setting within call setting and if you do not feel the voice is loud enuf then change it to “bright’ mode and call volume will increase and everything will be crystal clear…
    3) Camera quality is not as per expected by 13 MP – If you leave the setting in default (superior) mode you may get average indoor pics but outdoor pics are awesome…you will have to flirt with the camera settings to get good indoor and low light pics…I did it and am pretty satisfied…and its far better than Nexus…
    4) Heating problem – If you play heavy games and do multi-tasking then any android phone will heat up…I personally checked and it heats pretty less in comparison to Galaxy S3/ Nexus 4/ Xperia Z…and you guys know that its water proof so when its over-heated put it inside water for sometime and you would be good to go again…
    5) Internal memory – hmmm…being an avid game player and a techie I felt that this is a little con of this device…you wud get only 4.5 GB available…but you have the option to have external micro sd card and after that 4.5 GB is enuf for android apps or even big games…and you can root the device and change settings so that the apps will install on memory card..
    6) Its not water proof – literally I was completely shocked to see this con…well guys let me tell you when I received the phone from flipkart, the first thing I did was to start it and then put it in the water and check…and me & my friends were shocked to see that its really water-proof…BUT sony says that its flaps (audio and usb) should be closed properly and the back cover also fitted properly then only it will work in water and sony do not give LIQUID-WARRANTY…so do use the phone in water but be very careful…

    I think that’s all the cons I came up with and hope I cleared some confusions here…
    So let me not go into specs but give you perfect idea what are the practical pros of this beauty..
    1) Battery Life – its far better than Xperia Z, Galaxy S3 and Nexus 4…easily lasts a day and more with the normal usage of gaming, surfing, whatsapping and calling…
    2) 2GB RAM – that’s one of the best thing about this android phone…anytime you will check, you will find more than 800-900 MB RAM is free…that leads to multitasking and not worrying to kill any app to launch another app…I have played lot of heavy games and it works like breeze….
    3) Processor – well you are getting the hardware of Xperia Z in this phone…so you should know that this phone works like charm…it has lot of power and you would love it…no hang or lags….
    4) Display – its better than Super Amoled display of S3 as its very natural and rich in colour depth…and it doesn’t hurt your eyes even after watching it for 4-5 hours continuously which is the case with super amoled…and full marks to Bravia Engine 2 as it really enhances the picture and video quality…you would find videos or picture quality better on this phone than you laptop!!!!!!!
    5) Build quality – though back cover is of plastic but it doesn’t feel cheap as of samsung phones….its sturdy and feels pretty good in hand…and so you do not have put it inside any other non-sense cover to protect it…But anyways I would suggest to use a Screen Guard for extra protection…even though it has gorilla glass and the Best Part – shatter-proof film…
    6) Music quality is far better than samsung or nexus phones…and you get a sony headset which does not feel premium but still its a lot better than samsung…
    And seriously it looks pretty good…and thanks to sony that they did not put glass layer at the back as in xperia z otherwise a back cover would have become a necessity…

    So overall its a very good phone…its kind of futuristic phone and you would not regret it for another 5 years or so….So if you are dangling between S3 , nexus and ZR then go for ZR….

    This seller is a cheater, they won’t provide you the original bill with IMEI no, as a result you won’t get Warranty. Service center will consider your handset is a stolen one. So be careful about this fact.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    I am a certified buyer, but this option is missing while writing this review. i have mailed to flipkart. Anyways, I have been using this phone since last one week and till now its performance is ok. I have used many phones recently like Sony erricsson live with walkman, Blackberry curve 8520, Samsung galaxy s duos etc and wrote reviews here in Flipkart. Sony Xperia ZR comes to be the best for me presently and I am satisfied. I bought it after a lot of research in net, youtube with reviews. If anyone wants to go for an android device, then go for the high end devices, otherwise less priced androids are sluggish (especially Samsung), slow or hanged often and comes with weak battery.
    Now coming to Sony xperia ZR; it is a great phone with great specs at 27999. I bought it from Flipkart. People are writing its cons only which are mentioned in specs like VGA front camera and 8GB internal memory. There is no point of writing its specs and give it a low star here as Sony marketing is not like Samsung or Micromax or Nokia. But Sony devices are really fast and stood in some quality if concerned. As a user review, I will list down the pros and cons of Sony Xperia ZR below:

    1. Nice looking handset, comparatively lighter than any other phone of 4.6 ‘’screen. Easy to handle with one hand. It’s not looking cheap like Samsung plastic phones.
    2. The user interface is crisp, walkman music player is quite good, and quality of sound even without headsets is loud and clear.
    3. Sony Bravia Engine 2 and Adreno 320 GPU gives good HD display and sharpness with great PPI of nearly 323. Not oversaturated like super amoled displays.
    4. 2300 mAh Battery with ‘stamina mode on’ give me more than a day easily with average usage.
    5. It’s fast, very fast. Contacts, apps load within a second. And no hang after running multiple apps at a time.
    6. Almost in top of all Benchmark tests like Antutu, Nenamark, Quadrant standard etc.
    7. 13 MP Camera is of average, not that great. But day light photos are preety nice. Same goes for the Full HD videos too.
    8. 1.5 GHz quadcore with 2 GB RAM is really helpful. 1.4 GB RAM stays free all the time with no background app running.
    9. Browser is very fast. Loads any website quickly. I am using 3g service only. Also flash content/youtube videos are running well inside a web page.
    10. There is an extra coating on its front glass. So no need of any screen guard I think.
    11. Game play is very good, no lag till now. Played games like dead trigger, vector, commando, subway surf etc.
    12. Jelly bean 4.1.2 is loaded but 4.2.2 and 4.3.1 is coming to it as Sony confirmed.
    13. It is water and dust resistant as mentioned. I have not tested it yet as many user gave negative reviews in this regard.

    1. Low internal memory. It says 8GB but only 4.5 GB is there in storage and 3.6 GB is user usable, which is somewhat less for installing big apps or games. Also we cannot move any app to SD card as of now for Jelly bean.
    2. Front camera is VGA as everyone knows.
    3. Call quality or output from the speaker is somewhat low as compared to other phones.

    Lastly, if you want better android experience with better performance and decent screen size then go for it & you won’t regret it. Believe only certified buyer reviews of flipkart, because an outside purchased item may not be same or genuine. Don’t give a low star for it because of flipkart delivery simply because it is uncertain and not for the product quality. For me, I got it delivered after a week only as initially flipkart send it by Bluedart and cancelled it suddenly after 3 days and resend it by speed post. Don’t know whats wrong with Flipkart-Bluedart relations.

    Like it if the review is helpful to you. Thanks.

    Hello friends i will not be happy to write this review…..I brot sony xperia ZR with a price of 18490. I had ordered this phone on 18th aug and it got delivered to me on 20th by flipkart.
    I updated my android to kitkat and the battery backup was not bad but when i was using the software updator app also the phone started getting warm a bit so i ignored it thinking that may be downloading updates and installing makes it a bit warm. So then i installed preety small games like subway surfrs and and other apps….but whenever i played this games for just 5 mins the phone started getting heated like anything both from the front as well as the back side…it will getting very very hot after jus 5-10mins of game playing ….then i removed the games and apps….i started using other apps like whatsapp viber and the phone still started getting hot..when i kept it for charging…the phone used to get heated like a molten rock……and in the meanwhile i had also heard reviews from people that the sony xperia Z series phones have an issue with the screen.Many people have noticed that the screen gets a crack without a physical damage..Just when someone dsnt use it also…..but i ignored it…..but this heating issue took my breathe away..i contacted flipkart support and told them that i dont want this phone and wants to return this phone back and want my refund but they told me that they can give me a replacement and not my refund…
    their return policy says that we can get a refund only if the item is out of stock so no matter what if ur not satisfied with replacing the phone with new handsets….you cant do anything untill the item goes out of guys if your buying any eletronic goods from flipkart just be aware of the return policy…still i applied for a refund from the flipkart website….which was rejected without event contacting me and asking me about the issue…as i had mentioned in the return request that my phone is getting heated like a molten rock…they just rejected my return request…..without even informing me and told me that they have shared troubleshooting methods for heating problem…but they didnt email me anything. i raised a return request again and contacted flipkart support…and luckily the item went out of stock….so the flipkart executive told me that i can avail a refund and the process was initiated for refund…i was lucky enuf to get the product out of stock….so guys please before buying this phone. make a thourogh research abt it….and when someone offers u very less price…its the time to think twice…….Now i have ordered MOTO G(2nd Gen) and im hopeful that it wont disappoint me…:) 🙂

    Nothing much difference between Z & ZR

    Pros of Z over ZR.
    1.ZR’s Display is smaller than Z’s 5inch.
    2.But Z had 442ppi but ZR had only 319ppi.
    3.Z had 1920 x 1080 but ZR had 720 x 1280 resolution
    4.2MP front facing but ZR had 0.3MP.
    5.16GB internal memory than ZR’s 8GB.
    6.Difference of 30 mah in battery which Z claims.

    Pros of ZR over Z
    1.Ideal display size than mighty 5′..wonder how people are using plastic mega’s which look monstrous while taking with someone.
    2.IP55/58 than IP55/56 of Z’ additional protection under water.
    3.With the difference in display size, the battery works better with this smaller one ZR than Z.

    Again Z deserves those extra bucks for those additional features….
    (1.k for ppi+1k for memory(Internal)+1k for size+1K for 2mp camera+1k for battery and the remaining for Katrina Kaif)……

    One word–Sony does well in Music because its volume is on moderate level & ideal for ears rather than hTC’s or plastics which may be harmful if raised to highest level…Not criticising but a personal experience..

    Thanks for reading..

    Day by day flipkart is reducing the price of this phone compared to other sites. But beware of old stock items from flipkart. I ordered this phone 1 month back and i got a product which was imported in June 2013. I complained flipkart and they replaced my product. But unfortunately that was also imported in june 2013. A very bad experience from flipkart.
    But one of my friend who ordered this phone last week got a new one imported in may 2014. So if you are getting a very older one ask for a replacement until you get a new piece.

    Pros: Overall the phone is superb. Better battery backup and easy to handle.

    Cons: The major drawback is internal memory. Although it supports most of the high end games 4.5 gb internel memory restricts the use of such games with other major apps. There is no way to move apps to SD card without rooting.
    As my product is an older stock the flaps have some wear and they are not much firm.

  7. Rated 4 out of 5

    I bought it last week used as is for two days it was good upgraded to kitkat 4.4.4 now its awesome phone for this price, very nice product overall.
    As many have said it heats up if you watch even couple of songs on full brightness,use 3G for more than 10 minutes,etc
    another thing i noticed was that its flash is not as bright as xperia u which I had (compared it side to side) which has its own advantages and disadvantages, front cam should have been better (only drawback hardware wise)
    In short it heats more than any device I have owned hope it gets resolved with another update.
    to sum it up for the specs and price bracket branding quality i will give it 4 for the time being until heating problem is resolved.

    Disclaimer : I’m not a techie/gamer/gadget-freak and wasn’t looking for high-end specs. Opinion of a regular user who loves clicking, music and social networking:

    I opted for Sony cuz I was looking for a good cam and good music player that comes packagd in a feel-good UI, all fitting in a neat budget – dats all. Sony Xperia ZR was a choice well-made to comply with all that, I’d say. I did a lotta research on Moto X, other Sony phones, Asus Zenfone, Moto G.

    I loved the camera, jellybean that’s upgradeable, smooth net usage, AMAZING walkman ofcz which enhances the listening experience with the awsome headphones tht came in the set. You might have to come to terms with the front camera, but you’d have a lotta fun with the primary cam.
    The display is great; videos and games look and feel really fabulous. A few pre-loaded videos really made me proud. Pre-installed apps are way many – many useful, some not. I’m happy with the battery power too – stays a day long with moderate net-usage and music play. The phone does heat-up a bit on high wi-fi usage but I was downloading a lotta stuff then.

    I’d recommend buying the screen card and a cover online on combo – even the Sony Stores seem to have only a clear-screen guard that is way off price. ( I was looking for a matte one)

    Also, I bought this phone for 19,000 by WS Retail – all other sites and retailers sell @ 29,000 – 30,000. Delivered in a day. China make. Still fab.

    I’m hoping I got a good deal – no qualms so far!

    This is a wonderful phone with specs almost the same as Nexus 4 but with additional features like water resistance, removable battery.

    Right now, ZL is available for the same price!

    ZL has a better screen(full HD) and 16 GB internal storage which is quite important.
    ZL also has better dev support if you are into custom ROMs.

    If these things are more important to you than ZR’s water resistance, better battery back up, removable battery and better compact form(easier to use because of its smaller size), then go for ZL.

    Its really sad that someone has given this phone one star because ZL is available at same price. Even if they are at the same price, ZR still has some important features as mentioned above especially for people who don’t like big 5 inch phones.

    However, I would expect ZR’s price to go down soon due to ZL’s price reduction and also the upcoming Nexus phone which is likely to offer better specs in this price range.
    Wait for the price drop, its definitely coming. Although I am not sure, price may have already dropped since it doesn’t make sense to have these 2 phones at same price. Check retail stores.

    Overall rating, 4 stars. One less for the measly ~4.3 GB internal storage.

    BTW I would also consider Nexus 4 at this range while it is still in stock.
