Mostly no lag... I noticed a little in a few games I play but pretty insignificant. Booting is a little slow, but then I rarely turn it off!

Hahahahaha. Sony did a great job there.

Now I will wait for next year to get this. Too much I can't afford.

Ordered a Tablet Z today through Noel Leeming (my brother works there so we get discount). Can't wait to have the Z tablet and phone combo!

The tablet is absolutely stunning. Screen is beautiful, no slow-down apps optimised for the larger screen and the same great styling as the Z. Loving it so far.

I ordered a Sony Xperia SP just recently and it is due to arrive on Tuesday. I've been using my Zylo for a couple of months after my Galaxy S2 died.

Just recently bought a Raspberry Pi too.

Hi Carkitter! Glad to see you still pop back from time to time. Let's have a conversation where the replies are months apart!

How are you finding the SP?

My Z died the other day. Turns out that it heating up under heavy use can make it not-so-waterproof. I'm waiting to hear back from the repairs place about what happens next. I expect they'll blame it on me and I'll have to argue and link them to forums detailing the fault until they give me a refund.

On the plus side, my tablet Z is awesome.

Well, apparently they're fixing my Z under warranty. The repairs place seemed surprised that Sony had accepted the claim under warranty even though I told them why exactly the waterproof phone had water damage.

I'm unsure how much work goes into fixing water damage and whether its worth fixing over replacing, but we'll see what exactly they've done when it comes back. All they've told me is they're waiting on parts, and I suppose 'parts' can mean anything.

Well it turned out for the best. A brand new Z was in the parcel that I opened this morning.

It's going straight on TradeMe to see what I can get before the Z2 comes out.

So... the Z2 is taking aaages to come out here! It is very frustrating waiting for it, made worse by the fact I'm using my old Xperia X10 in the meantime which is utterly awful by today's standards.

I have been tempted to import the Z2 numerous times, and the sweet deals that places like Clove and Mobicity offer are killing me. The only reason I have held out so far is the hunch that Vodafone New Zealand will offer something sweeter, like a Sony Smartband or Smartwatch with the Z2. If they confirm no bonus of any kind, I'll be ordering from Clove the very same day!

Err... how about years apart?
Are you still in Auckland? I'm sure you've finished your study now.
How are you liking the current cost of rent / house prices in the 09? Driving you to despair like everybody else?

How are you finding the SP?

SP is still going strong. Kit laggy on the current firmware but with comparatively low RAM... whad'ya gunna do?

I kept going with the Xperia SP as long as I could but alas, my online banking app expired so I had to update to a newer version of Android. Just bought a Huawei Y7 locked to Vodafone NZ from the Warehouse for $249 which I think is an outstanding deal. It's nice to use, fast and responsive and cheap considering my personal phone takes a back seat to my work phone which is a Samsung J5 Prime (ugh!).

Hi everyone! I am new to this place and I need some urgent help. So, the thing is, I had some unexpected expenses and ran out of money so now I can't pay my bills. And taking a payday loan like https://paydaygorilla.com/nz/ seems to be the only option at this point. But as far as I know, some people have a really negative approach to this kind of loans. The main reason is a high interest rate but I am ok with that because I know that I'll pay the money back in a few days, right after I get my salary. But are there any other reasons that I should consider before I take such a loan in New Zealand?
