Partially, but system dumps don't contain identifyable information.

what's the best battery life then that you got out of the Sony Xperia Z (with and without the ''Battery STAMINA Mode'') ??Also, do you think they'll update it to Android 5.0 (Key Lime Pie) shortly after Google's release of that/reckon CyanogenMod 11 (Android 5.0) would work on the device??

I can't comment on the battery life because firstly I use an email intensive app which totally screws with the battery life of every phone and secondly I experiment a lot with the phone which hurts the battery life a lot. But it still lasts one full day so I'll say they've done a good job on this area. Forgot that the software also has some debugging features enabled with extra logging etc which definitely has an effect on the battery.

In general I have the following comments:
- Big screen but I love the design and the feeling on my hand. Being very slim also helps here.
- Lovely screen, high density surely helps with browsing
- Sound quality is very good, mic quality just fine, I just wish it had 2 speakers instead of one.
- Fast, smooth etc etc etc Full HD doesn't seem to slow down any functions.
- There is a quick settings bar on top with only some fixed quick settings: sound, bt, wifi, data and access to settings menu. You can't hide it.
- There are some Xperia integration features as before, eg facebook, myxperia. Timescape indeed missing, Socialcast is lighter but still buggy.
- Has MSC mode as an alternative to MTP
- The task list soft key also gives you access to small apps
- I don't like the Xperia launcher but I never did


Don't have any info if it will be upgraded to 5.0 but hardware wise should be able to handle it. Let's see android 5.0 first though

Thanks for that, appreciate it. Really looking forward to this and ZL. Biggest determining factor for me will be battery life. I work 26 hr shifts with little opportunity to charge and I use my phone a decent amount. Currently I have an SGS2 with a few extra batteries so I just swap em out if need be. But I won't be able to do that with this phone but anyways because of the developer community and how much Samsung screws us over, the ZL is looking quite appetizing.

Ya if you look at the video LitoNi posted you'll see the widget which is 4x4. Looks nicer than Timescape imo.

Do what you can without comprising anything. Even, like TK said, just a wallpaper is fine.

When's the ZL due for release?

Not showing on the Sony site, but probably a more cost effective alternative for me!

My XT is now on Amazon.
I want the Xperia Z sooo much!
If it sells I'll just have to use a crappy Samsung for a while...
