Sony’s Xperia phones have the best camera that I’ve used on smartphones and that is why, after reading a lot about Xperia Z & ZL, I planned on getting one for myself after I broke my Xperia mini pro. But it seems like that’s not going to happen because what I was looking for was a phone with dust/water proof capabilities, 4G/LTE support and also supports AWS 1700 frequency which Mobilicity and Wind Mobile use in Canada. Apparently none of these two models give me what I’m looking for.
Xperia ZL supports AWS 1700 frequency on 4G/LTE but it’s not IP Code 57, meaning it’s not dust and water proof.
Xperia Z is IP Code 57 but does not support AWS 1700 frequency on 4G/LTE but it does on 3G, which would be a waste of money if my carrier supports it but I don’t have a phone that works on it even though I’d have spent more than $500. Even Xperia TL LTE is not IP Code 57.
I don’t understand the nonsense of having so many different versions of phones for different regions. But as far as Canada’s Mobilicity and Wind users are concerned, we’ve to look for other options, probably other options in my mind are not as good as having an Xperia Z* phone with 4G/LTE support, AWS 1700 support on 4G/LTE and also have the phone IP Coded 57.
