5 out of 5 eggsExcellent phone

Pros: battery performance, gaming performance, water resistance (plus protection against pool water), MINT COLOR, great solid feel (no loose parts), audio quality

Cons: Apps are not allowed to install in SD card, low volume on the loudspeaker due to waterproof feature

Other Thoughts: I was considering between the Xperia Z and the ZR. I went for the ZR and I feel I have made the right choice. The ZR has a additional camera button for me to take pictures, as well as a smaller screen (5 vs 4.6inch). Although the screen resolution is downsized to 720p, it makes a huge difference on the battery life. Without playing "Real Racing 3", the battery on the ZR lasts at least 50 hours for me (with 4.5 hours of screen time + FB, etc).

However, there're a few down side. Apps are not allowed to install in SD card, this is something that needs to be done in future updates from Sony! Also the loudspeaker has slightly lower volume due to the water resistance feature, but everything is still able to hear while on speakerphone. (This was compared to my old Nokia N8)

Now even though there're a lot of newer processors like Snapdragon 600,800 out there in the market, the S4 Pro quad core on this ZR still has excellent performance. I do not see any lag when I play games.

*P.S. I recently purchased the ZR charging dock at the Sony store and it works great with phone. Highly recommended if you don't like to open the USB port when you charge the phone.

2 out of 5 eggstheir repair policy is funny till it happens to you

Pros: waterproof. looks way cheaper than it is so its less likely to be stolen.

Cons: 1990's-style MAIL IN repairs that take 2 weeks MINIMUM. After 2 weeks wifi stopped working, then bluetooth stopped working, then gps stopped working. No advance device replacement like every other major smartphone manufacturer. You have to send it to texas and be without your phone for AT LEAST 2 weeks. Hilarious I know. Its 2013!! But I promise it stops being funny when it happens to you.
