Feeling impressed? Well I got impressed too when I reviewed the above mentioned pros about Sony Xperia Z, since it appears promising and it was pretty hard to pinpoint the cons of this wonderfully designed android phone. But when I researched on it closely, I found some disadvantages so I thought; I must share them with my fellows. Here are the negative aspects that I have gathered during my research on sony Xperia Z.

Back and Front glass panel

Xperia Z has got killing appearance with back and front glass coating which plays a major role in outer-shell of the device. Though, it appears great but on the same time, it attracts fingerprints and dirt. Be it in black or white, if you buy it so those smudges will be visible on the phone.

No devoted camera key

It may not be as big issue for some, but certainly a worth noticing element that Xperia Z doesn't have a dedicated camera key. If Sony wanted to feature it as a camera phone, they could have included a dedicated camera key in it.

Missing smartTags

The own SmartTags of Xperia is not present as an ordinary accessory in Xperia Z. The smartphone supports beam features and has NFC. It doesn’t have any supported SmartTag application that can transfer information.

Other cons of Xperia Z include unimpressive screen quality, Lackluster viewing angles, Camera app is slow to open, Poor quality loudspeaker and last but not least it’s not a latest version of Android.
