Finally! My next device. No negative points. I just hope the display quality is good enough. And of course the battery...

Thanks, but I looked at these two links (plus the author's post in this thread) and there was no mention of LTE and/or 4G : http://www.sonymobile.com/glo[....]xperia-zr/specifications/#tabs , http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_xperia_zr-5421.php is it XR4/5 info? where did you see this? Many thanks

Really hope the version released in Norway has LTE...

Curious, on mobil.se (swedish website for phone news) they mention 4G, but it's not mentioned on Sony Sweden's ZR page!
