I got to have some hands on time with a ZL and Z today. The ZL had a noticeably brighter screen. ZL felt so nice in ny hand. I am really torn between the two devices. They both are amazing.

Also saw that the IR remote is just below the power button so you have to hold the phone in landscape when using the IR remote.

The ZL was just about the same size as my TL.

Brighter on 100% or what? Generally better colors?

Just being brighter isn't really an advantage is it? I use my iPod at 20-30% brightness setting.

Re: ZL screen brighter than Z
Brighter at 100% and lowest setting. The blacks look a bit better on the Z though.

Re: ZL screen brighter than Z
How was the Z in size and shape when compared to the Ion?

My ion is at home. I'll take comparison photos when I get home of the Z and my other devices.

Finally some love for the ZL. So the blacks look a bit better in the Z, what about the colors? How long did you play with the device?

Re: ZL screen brighter than Z
Most important question I have is: can you easily drop down the notification center with your thumb while keeping your pinky finger on the bottom of the ZL? That for me is the test for one handed operation

So I assume the Z you had is not the 6606 model?

Besides, how is it possible for screens to be any different? Sony said they are exactly the same. Maybe the Z you had was a per-production or earlier sample?

ZL screen brighter than Z
The ZL I had was not final software so things could change with it. Looking at photos on each device closely the Z is much darker than the ZL (talking screen brightness here). I didn't try changing the ZL to match the same level as the Z so I couldn't really compare the colors on each when looking at photos. The Z was noticeably darker on photos.

I didn't mess with the white alliance colors either on the ZL just left them as they were which showed 0 on each slider.

When comparing system menus and icons colors I couldn't really tell much of a difference.

Still have the Z (C6602) ZL only got to mess with for about 45 minutes or so. I really liked the ZL feel. Was about the same size as the TL when I compared them. The back of the ZL (black version) has a nice textured soft rubbery feel to it that looked great. The burst camera on these two devices is super quick and very good quality. I also really liked how the sides/edges of the ZL are also lass like the Z.
