My video review:


Sony Xperia Z quick unboxing.




Sony Xperia Z set up.





Sony Xperia Z Benchmarking test's



Sony Xperia Z "The bad side"



New
Sony Xperia Z "USB-OTG support"










Update:

Ok Im doing some tests with battery life.
(Battery test is not complete yet., more accurate results will be ready on Monday) And I want to tell you guys for now I can say the battery life with out STAMINA mode is very good.

All day from morning until now I'm using my phone every 5 min. Pictures, videos, internet, games, apps....long story short the phone was on very active use.
(I did so many restarts also)





Now guys pay attention to grey UI colors (background)

When you put screen at maximum brightness, it begins to seem that black color looks greyish !

But after looking closely you realize that this is dark grey color . You may have at first look a illusion of bad screen. But again it just grey UI. (why sony did that ?!).

Example:


(PS When the first deodex rom will appear, I will make a nice theme for us, witch is will bring much eye candy UI like this: AOSP Jelly Bean theme)







However I took a picture to show you something.
This is a "black" wallpaper from Cyanogen mod 10.1 bootanimation.zip with full brightness at dark room.

As you see dark is not dark enough











Here is some camera comparison.
Night time in nasty foggy/rainy weather:


Nexus S (CyanogenMod):



Zsex (sorry I slightly smeared the picture) :













I also did some cool picture of the device
(Night look)













UPDATE: 02/25/13

Guys I have a bad and good news.

Let's start with the good news.
STAMINA not just a stupid energy mode. It's kind of intelligent scanning program. Witch is tracking all active process.
You will ask me "what do you mean ?"

Example I using BeWeather app. (very nice weather application, very sexy and provides beautiful widgets)
Today I got notification:



Not bad yea ?






Now bad news.
The battery life is bad. Yes guys. More bad than Galaxy S III.
My phone was on charge all night (more than 9 hours). When I woke up I activate STAMINA mode.
I always listening music and surfing the internet when I in bus. (from New Jersey to New York)
The way is around 2-3 hours.

(due to my C6603 model witch is not working with Tmobile 4G, Im using tmobile hotspot)

Long story short I arrived to the work. Check my battery status:





With the same active usage:
On galaxy S3 I got at least: 79-83%
On galaxy note 2 I got at least 92%


So if you see I providing only true info. Where is no bulls.h.i.t.


And another good news
I get a lot of compliments because of this phone. The phone is sexy as f*ck




Regards.









UPDATE:

Ok guys I found something interesting !

We all know about the liquid indicators witch is are generally placed in similar locations (under the battery) These indicators turn red when exposed to water, which can void your warranty.


So Xperia Z also have that "liquid indicators" and its located inside under protective pads.

Made in China, Unbelievable.. hahaa
I'm going to China next tuesday, Hope I'd get the phone soon too.
and are you German or French to get this phone this quick?
wish it was released world wide at the same time.
did you get LTE one?

Edited:
Oh you're German, just now watched the videos.
I think you paid little bit extra huh.I think it's because for the dock and all.
okay you've got the LTE one too.
Can you upload the benchmark results too?
If you can find 64GB card can you try that out too?

It is recommended that you put a screen cover over the anti shatter film as the anti shatter film is prone to fingerprints.
