4 out of 5 eggsQuite good

This review is from: Sony Xperia Z C6602 HSPA+ Black 4G Quad-Core 1.5GHz 16GB Unlocked Water Resistance Cell Phone U.S. Warranty

Pros: Good display, fast processor, waterproof, and as always walkman

Cons: battery life, touch screen not up the price, heats up of talk for long (about an hour :P)

Other Thoughts: To increase battery life, I need to deactivate many of the services/process (mostly sony) that I don't use. Also, stamina mode is helps battery.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat phone

This review is from: Sony Xperia Z C6602 HSPA+ Black 4G Quad-Core 1.5GHz 16GB Unlocked Water Resistance Cell Phone U.S. Warranty

Pros: I've owned the phone since it first came to US via Newegg, about 9 months. It's a great phone. I've tested the phone's waterproofing after 5 months. Didn't die. It continued to play Hulu under the water. Get pretty good WIFI (which is relative to it's antenna and DSP (digital signal processing) filtering.

I took off the plastic cover from factory and didn't bother to put on after market. It is fairly resistant to most scratches but will scratch. Better than Apple's screen as I have dropped it many times, even on concrete. Lucky me.

Cons: It does get warm while charging, but not enough that hot that the glass separates.

OS updates are slower than Samsung's phone releases. Perhaps due to testing and customization. Sony likes to do things their own way as I've read from my Vaio's website.

Other Thoughts: WIFI was said by another poster to not go through walls. No WIFI goes through walls. Signals bounce off walls. They scatter just as light does. It's an electro-magnetic wave like light is.

Also, ignoring the screen comment, it is WATER PROOF as it can be used below the water surface for up to (the guarantee) 30 minutes of less than 1 meter or 3 feet. That is what is stated. The conditions, no physical abuse to compromise the glass AND all dust covers are in good operable condition and sealed. I did have the concern as when the rubber seal will dry out but I imagine that is a product life thing that will not be honored but most likely beyond the manufacturer's warranty.

I intend to keep this phone for another 4 years at least because I plan on doing many things that involve water or sand at the beach. I feel comfortable with this phone.

1 out of 5 eggsSony mobile RMA support is a scam

This review is from: Sony Xperia Z C6602 HSPA+ Black 4G Quad-Core 1.5GHz 16GB Unlocked Water Resistance Cell Phone U.S. Warranty

Pros: When it works, it is above average phone.

Cons: Waterproof is misleading people, it is glimmick to confuse people. I know the phone is only water resistant not waterproof... but the phone back cover lose over the time that became a hole to let water in easily not even water resistant... My phone was damaged and I created RMA exactly one month ago and the RMA dept. didn't know anything about the repair status nor where is my phone right now.. they sent to wrong address. The funny part is they provided 1st tracking number which shipped to different state and called me back 2nd time giving me different tracking number to the state where I live... Can you believe this? And after one month I still don't have my phone... I think I will try to contact consumer affair... ha ha... BTW, I just got Moto X and love that phone better than this one...

4 out of 5 eggsXperia Z C6602

This review is from: Sony Xperia Z C6602 HSPA+ Black 4G Quad-Core 1.5GHz 16GB Unlocked Water Resistance Cell Phone U.S. Warranty

Pros: Awesome phone, bootloader unlockable. I am using T-Mobile and I get DC-HSPA+ max download of 42Mb/s or HSPA+ max download of 21Mb/s.

Cons: Lacks LTE, but HSPA+ more than makes up for it.

2 out of 5 eggsShort life

This review is from: Sony Xperia Z C6602 HSPA+ Black 4G Quad-Core 1.5GHz 16GB Unlocked Water Resistance Cell Phone U.S. Warranty

Pros: I have a previous review with quite a bit of praise of the phone, I loved every bit of it while it worked with the only complaint being the camera compresses the 13mp a lot.

Cons: construction is not made to last, the phone runs pretty hot and it has managed to make the glue holding the back glass detach in under 3 months, and now there's a large gap leading right to the phone's internals. the water resistance is gone entirely. sony states the back glass separating is physical damage and therefore voids the warranty, even though the phone is in pristine condition and never mistreated. horrible support. there's a huge thread with a number of users experiencing the issue as well, and being so early into the life of the phone it will only get worse as time goes on.

Other Thoughts: It worked wonderfully until water found its way into the hole left by the separated glass, now the phone is completely dead. I'll miss having a water resistant phone, but if the craftsmanship is so poor that it falls apart from its own heat while under light to moderate use, no gaming whatsoever (just charging, camera, gps use) then it's not worth being a flagship device.

-1 star for poor quality materials
-1 star for bad heat dissipation
-1 star for support

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far!

This review is from: Sony Xperia Z C6602 HSPA+ Black 4G Quad-Core 1.5GHz 16GB Unlocked Water Resistance Cell Phone U.S. Warranty

Pros: The screen is gorgeous and doesn't care about sunlight. Turning the Bravia Engine off is recommended, but otherwise, it's sharp, large and gorgeous. The battery can take a decent beating, though the screen eats a lot of power. The camera is great, everything is snappy and responsive, the Walkman program is snazzy, and the phone is very well built.

An update was put out to fix reported camera issues and the phone doesn't have any obvious issues that I have noticed.

Cons: Most of my issues are with the Android operating system itself. Coming from one of those evil iPhones, I miss simple things like touching the top to instantly scroll all the way up, apps being designed for my screen resolution and charging/usb connectivity with my car stereo.

The large, beautiful screen can devour battery power.

Having flaps to provide waterproof protection can be sort of annoying at times.

Other Thoughts: Large phones like this are sort of awkward, but it's beautiful and capable. The capacity for water proofing is snazzy, if not a game changer of any sort.

1 out of 5 eggsgreat phone ONLY when it works

This review is from: Sony Xperia Z C6602 HSPA+ Black 4G Quad-Core 1.5GHz 16GB Unlocked Water Resistance Cell Phone U.S. Warranty

Pros: haven't tested much since the phone is defected! however i do like the shape and the size of it.

Cons: wifi is somehow weak so far that i found for 3 days of experience... touch screen isn't that accurate compare to samsung series, might need time to get use to it

Other Thoughts: my phone came defected!!! it only charges when the usb driver activated which means i can't direct charge or use car charger ! contacted sony usa and they told me i can't rma with them since i didn't buy it from the sony official store. called newegg afterwards and still waiting for a reply.
will update if there's any follow ups.

1 out of 5 eggsUnacceptable Custmer Service

This review is from: Sony Xperia Z C6602 HSPA+ Black 4G Quad-Core 1.5GHz 16GB Unlocked Water Resistance Cell Phone U.S. Warranty

Pros: My friend told me this phone has very good display.

Cons: If phones stop working, SONY will kindly "repair" your phone by replying "no problem found".

Other Thoughts: This is another case of their problem of customer support. My friend got a SONY Xperia phone from Asian market. It works perfectly well in the 1st few weeks. Then, phone's camara start to taking black photo. He sent back for warranty repair. After a weeks, he received his "fixed" phone with the same issue. He is now trying to send back again. Be aware!!!
