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.

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?

Possible, it's a demo unit.

Hello! Just wanna ask how did you get a hold of a ZL demo unit? Since I haven't heard any news of it for weeks now. I would be happy if sony has already started marketing campaign for ZL as I don't want to wait till April to get it.

What do you mean by I don't have to wait till april? I have heard news from Xperiablog stating the Xperia ZL's availability(at least on some countries) to be on the month of april. In case I don't really have to then that would be great!

Okay here are some pics (not a photographer so bear with me) of my TL, ion and the Z so you can see the size comparison. For having as big of a screen as the Z and ZL do they are not bulky phones at all. Love their size. For the pics with the screens on the brightness was set to 100% and disabled any adjustment to lighting condition options.

Re: ZL screen brighter than Z
The contrast on the TL looks much better to me. The blacks are kinda gray on the new ones. Or do they get better without the brightness at full?

All the Xperia devices I have seen all seem more gray than the ion (pictured in the middle) The ion has had the best screen I have seen. Wish I had the ZL here so I could include that. Soon it will be mine
