Yes, the phone is good. But false advertising and poor customer service on Sony's part.

I have to complain about the loss in faith I have had in this company I once trusted, considered reliable. I own a Sony Television, a PS3, Music System, POS Camera and now a Smartphone, the Xperia ZR. But the business policy and Service to Consumers have changed over the years, and this has caused a great emotional and economic distress to me.

I have to complain about the loss in faith I have had in this company I once trusted, considered reliable. I own a Sony Television, a PS3, Music System, POS Camera and now a Smartphone, the Xperia ZR. But the business policy and Service to Consumers have changed over the years, and this has caused a great emotional and economic distress to me.

I had bought an XPERIA ZR(C5502) on the 11th of September, 2013. After a month of use, suddenly the screen of the phone would not turn on. Other functions were working perfectly as far as my knowledge goes, (i.e. camera button, volume keys etc). A few days ago, it stopped booting altogether.

On contacting the Sony Service centre- Accel Frontline Ltd., 601-604, 6th Floor, Ashok Bhavan, 95, Nehru Place, he informed me that I have done water damage to my phone, and therefore void my warranty. I repeatedly asked him to open(unscrew) the phone and check for any damages, but he told me that he wont open it, because some litmus paper inside the phone had turned red, indicating water damage. I persistently said that the phone has undergone no water damage, and is not turning on, so to please check for any damage inside and fix it as it was just a month old and was under warranty. I repeatedly told him that I have not brought the phone under water contact in any manner, to which he replied that then it was my fault during purchase, that I didnt check the water indicator strip, thereby asserting that I AS A CONSUMER AM NOT ASSURED A DEFECT FREE PIECE UPON PURCHASE. WHY DIDNT YOU PUT A CLAUSE FOR THE CONSUMER, THAT "PLEASE CHECK THE WATER INDICATOR UPON PURCHASE" ? THAT INDICATOR HAS BEEN RED AS FAR AS I KNOW.

ADDITIONALLY, THIS PHONE IS IDENTIFIED AS "WATERPROOF" BY SONY. But he said I had to pay 80% of the phone's actual cost, to get a replacement, and he will NOT REPAIR IT UNDER WARRANTY. ALSO, HE ADDED, THAT HE WILL ONLY OPEN IT TO INSPECT IF HE GETS A SPECIAL EMAIL FROM SONY INDIA AUTHORITIES, INSTRUCTING HIM TO DO SO.This entire routine has aggravated my grievance to such an extent that I decided to go public with it.

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....

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:

Pros:
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.

Cons:
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.

In reply to Sai-venkat Reddy's review for ZR

The Pros ans cons of xperia Z and ZR cannot be compared as there is a 8k rs difference in them. Its like comparing grand with s3.

BUSTING THE MYTHS

*The screen of ZR is 4.6in 720p display which is more than enough for a 4.6in device. 1080p is for devices with 5in of more display.
*The internal memory of ZR is 8gb compared to 16gb of zr. but there is a memory card slot and for installing the heavy games on SD card there is a 3rd party patch available so we can install all the games on SD card.
*The hardware in both the phones is the same so ZR will perform more better bcoz of the lower 720...

*The internal memory of ZR is 8gb compared to 16gb of zr. but there is a memory card slot and for installing the heavy games on SD card there is a 3rd party patch available so we can install all the games on SD card.
*The hardware in both the phones is the same so ZR will perform more better bcoz of the lower 720p resolution
*Yes the water and dust resistance is better than than of Z. Z can resist water upto 3.3ft for 30mins while ZR can resist water upto 5ft for 30mins.
*Many will feel 5inches too big and so 4.6inch is a perfect size for most people.

CON
*Yes the front camera is less thats a real and the only con of ZR.

And yes who cannot afford there is always an alternative and i.e, Canvas 4 and people should really support the Indian manufactures and so that they will grow and will eventually raise their company image and also the service about which people usually complain.

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's..so additional protection under water.
3.With the difference in display size, the battery work...

2.IP55/58 than IP55/56 of Z's..so 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..
