Sony Xperia ZL hands-on

0. phoneArena 08 Jan 2013, 04:19 posted on

Frankly, it might be rather difficult for some people to notice the slightly more compact size of the Xperia ZL while holding it in the hand. However, instead of sporting the glossy finish of its sibling, the Xperia ZL opts for a cleaner appearance with its all-white matte paint job..

Yup, it's beautiful.
But the front-camera is kind of distracting...i mean, for a rightie, it'll be somewhat tough not to get their hands over the camera.

Funny, I never gave this a thought until now. I am right-handed but I actually use my left hand to operate my phone.

The front facing camera is a bad decision but other than that it Rocks Sammy's socks Off

This is the greatest phone ever made in the history. Japan the best. Cheap chinese and korean plastic copycat phones don't match with Japanese quality.

Disappointed about non-removable battery but if it makes it's way to VZW it will be my next phone.

Uncalled for kid... Last time I recall Sony being on Verizon it was the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play in 2011 which had both GSM w/SIM and CDMA variants w/o SIM. I feel there are customer on Verizon that would appreciate a CDMA variant of this phone like many phones that get released first as GSM.

The Xperia ZL has a different design (cheaper plastic) and is a quad band :)
