Pros 5" display is the perfect. I like the notification and charging light is different from any I have ever seen. It is thin and feels comfortable in the hand. The ZL has expandable storage. 13 mp camera. Excellent sound. Unique power on/off button.
Cons Battery life. A couple of calls and it's down from 100% to 70%. It will not download pics while the wifi is enable even when it's not wifi connect but enabled. I have had problems deleting text messages when deleting multiple contacts' messages.
Summary I had read but about the short battery life before I bought the phone. When throwing in the issue of picture downloading, I would not buy this phone if I could do a redo. I do not know if Sony can do a fix for the pic download issue, but if they do this phone might would rate 4 stars.As I stated in an earlier review, MMS do not download immediately. It comes in as a text. I then must request the download that takes as much as a minute. I don't know if this is a Sony problem or T-Mobile. I have contacted both but got no results. Another issue that I have is answering a call. When a call comes in, to answer, you must push a green button from left to right on the screen. Often it takes several swipes to answer. Sometimes I can't answer at all because the call goes to voicemail before a successful swipe. A simple touch to answer button and decline button upgrade could fix this

Pros just get it
Cons just get it
Pros Snappy quad core, loads of ram, 16 GB internal storage, up to 64 GB micro sd, 13mp camera, excellent standby battery life, sharp HD screen, clear call quality, stable OS with no glitches so far.
Cons Big physical size, screen isn't as bright as I would like, battery drains quickly with heavy use.
Summary I've had the phone for 2 weeks now and it really has been a fantastic phone with few drawbacks. My biggest complaint is the size, which is pretty much standard for the latest and greatest these days.
