That in short is...

The Z1 is a great phone. Still using it till now, but it is starting to age. The flaps are coming apart and the processors are not capable of the newest games

dont buy this phone its waterproof feature is not worth buying,they will just void its warranty when it got wet inside and will not admit its a possible phone defect.!

SUBPAR DISPLAY AGAIN! I was hoping Sony will quit playing games and come up with a proper display solution. Instead they put advertising at work and hope for the best: 'triluminous extravagant display Bravia tech bla bla '. Well HTC and Samsung don't boast about their LCDs so much but they are miles ahead. The truth is this is another subpar display from SONY and the review failed to mention that. This is a flaghisp phone competing with Samsung Galaxy 4 and HTC One - you should compare the device with them not with Xperia Z. Certainly the display is better than Xperia Z which was awful.
Also as it was pointed out here the sound quality hasn't been improved. You get the same below average volume levels. So expect to hear everything around you while commuting or walk at street level.Terrific

So far in antutu, most of my xperia z1's test score doesn't exceed 31,000. Its worst score is as low as 24,000. Is there a problem here? I just bought my phone yesterday. Anyway, lovin' the phone
