No issues here either.

No black dots, no charging issue. In call volume could be louder but that is not an hardware issue, still its louder than my Galaxy Nexus.

Did you buy your phone recently? And which country, if I may ask?

When did you buy yours, recently?

I love what this phone should be. I don't love what it is. On the strength of my experience, I cannot recommend this phone. Others will probably say different.
Exactly man. I really like it. But there were 2-3 people at the shop with these issues. Had it been any other issue, I wouldn't have minded, but if the basic functions such as calls and camera have issues. Then

I have it to. It's seems a problem with the sensor itself. When you look at you pictures, you will notice that the black dots are sharp and not blurry, so it's impossible that it comes from some dust in the phone, otherwise the dots should be blurry because they are to close to the sensor to focus on.


I also find the sound very low during phone calls, and there is also a noise on the line what makes it even harder to understand some people.
Did you try to get it fixed/replaced? How about the earphones, good enough with music?


Also, guys. Is the S4 a good choice. I don't like the looks and the UI. But overall, it looks like a complete phone, complete package. Opinions?

I'm from Belgium and bought it in Germany at the Phone House. I already tried during 3 months to get the IR blaster and a back cover that loses it's skin to be repaired without succes. I was so angry that I'm actually not jumping to go back to Germany ( a trip of 1h45) for again a battle with the Phone House to get my stuff repaired and working. And a couple of months without my phone.

I will never buy at the Phone house again, sometimes I'm thinking of buying a HTC One or the Asus PadPhone 3 and then bring back the Xperia for a new try to repair my Phone.

Hmmm...

So, I bought my 6506 via the bitcoinstore... I don't remember who the back end wholesaler is who fulfills their orders.

Anyway, I haven't had any issues with black spots on the camera, haven't really had any issues with call volume, never really had any problem with my phone being unresponsive or sluggish while charging.

Depending on the activity while it's charging it can get somewhat warm... (performing a nand backup while charging are what I'm mostly thinking of...)

Its a solid phone. But its too old and has too many issues to consider the ZL. The s4 is solid. Has a faster processor, better camera, better screen, and best of all, A REMOVABLE BATTERY!! I am not a Samsung fan by any means. Only had the s2 and galaxy nexus. But they were both solid, except the screen burn in on the galaxy nexus :s

So far my only actual issue with the ZL is the black dots in the camera (screenshot). As for call volume issues, I haven't run stock software since the 4.1.2 JB it came with. I use AOSP based ROMs. And I have no call quality issues or laggy charging problems.

Thanks: XDA and all its members. Without you I'd still be an uneducated bumpkin complaining about my shi**y phone.
