Hi i'm from Z forum and saying to buy Z because it's still supported from MUCH developers
They are nearlly the same hardware
But Z is developers supported
It will even get 4.4.4 update soon

Z have many mods/roms and other stuff
But ZL camera lens looks bigger

ZL have less bezel also mods from Z can also be used in ZL but not the custom rom, so for me its not a big deal wether he/she buys Z or ZL

Not all Z mod can be used on ZL. That can highly result a bootloop
Also the Z forum here is much more active than ZL one
I think opening the both devices forums on XDA is best way to see which better. So people can see others problems or mods or port or other stuff

I agree with most of this... at the time I bought mine though, the better version of the Z wasn't available on the Bitcoin store...

yeh I agree with you , even I myself a ZL user visits Z forum more often than visiting ZL forum, that is why I use some of mods in Z forum. But the more active is the crossdevelopment threads and I use to visit it a lot.

Well, 4.4.2 stock kitkat will drain your battery...
I'm much happier using Custom Rom instead of stock rom
You know, it has a lot of customization, tweaks, and many things that stock rom doesn't have
