Looking to swap Note 2 (n7100) for Xperia ZL

Was thinking of the swap when a friend wants to swap my Note 2 for his Xperia ZL. Is it the right choice? Or am I screwed if i make the switch. Any thought?

Well, the XperiaZL certainly looks very nice, and if you are looking for more of a phone than phablet experience, you might be happy with it.

I havn't used a Note 2 [Using a Note 10.1 now and then and a SGS4 if those are comparable] and I havn^t used the Sony one, but I have not had a shitty Sony product yet ^^

thats awesome. i was thinking is the LTE upgrade from ZL is worth the battery compromise. OS wise i am not worried cause i will root it anyway.
