After checking out the battery test and reading some parts of this review, starting from the camera, since its supposed to be the main (or maybe only) advantage over the Note 3, I feel bad to even give a negative post about this phone. But the waterproof is really good though, and its glass and aluminum combo is just superb. Yeah, its a beautiful piece of hardware Sony, keep it up. Best of luck for the Z1.
Everyone is looking for clear sharp display with natural colour rendering, which will give originality. For me AMOLED display lacks natural look, its too much coloured, When I compare Galaxy s4 with Xperia Z ultra. Z ultra display is good
Lumia 1020 destroyed Sony Xperia Z1 at Sony launch event. Somebody do video and audio recording tests for both these devices. It won't look good for Xperia Z1 as it's missing OIS and Rich Recording mics (HAAC)

When I checked on the photo compare tool with Z1, S4 and G2.Surprisingly found that Z1's photo rather weaker than the other two, noisy and blurry.
I don't know if it has any related to the lens defect stated in the review so I'm asking if you guys are using the same phone on both the still image review and photo compare tool or maybe will have update for photo sample in the future?
Only Sony fans will be interested.
Bezel too big. Squared corners don't help ergonomics. Camera is nothing special.
LG G2, S4, or Note 3 is the way to go.
I find that the LG G2 has a better camera quality judging from many samples. But none can beat the king 808 pureview. Hopefully one day we'll have one for Android!
Hmmm, nice benchmark result.. But it's a bit confusing when reading this review because in another information shows that this device has HDR.. However, the devices that gsmarena tested is a pre-production, i suggest that you should write any reviews by testing it from a final-retail unit.. But still, i will go to stores and try it myself to proves it with my own eyes after the devices is officially released to my country..
what happen SONY?
BATTERY LIFE OF Z1?
5;59Hours ONLY for Browsing...?
6Hours ONLY for Video Play back...?
i think LG G2 has bigger Display with the same Battery 3000mAh?
LG G2's BATTERY LIFE;
11;22Hours for Browsing
12Hours for Video Play back...
Hi GSM Arena. Can you confirm if the phone you tested is a final retail unit, or a pre-production version? The camera noise in your photos looks like what we were seeing on earlier firmware versions of the Z1.
Also worth noting that insiders are saying the true camera software for Z1 was delayed until after launch by about a month or so. So hopefully we will see a re-review by you once it's released.

ILOVEXPERIA, 19 Sep 2013Triluminos display - The display is a crap piece of LCD, Triluminos is a software inside to bo... moreTriluminos is a hardware technology by adding an extra yellow cell along with RGB ones. Please just google it a little bit before you make any non-sense comments.
The rest of your comments are all personal opinions, but do not make it sounds like like you have ever owned it before. You can only make those statements when you actually touched and used it. Please be fair to people who are just like you, whom never tried the phone and should/could have a chance to try it out.
now we just have to wait ''again'' for xperia z2, coz the z1 has terrible battery life an a non replaceable....biglol
The only thing i could say ,Sony is starting to produce some good devices can stand in the market against huge brands like Samsung and apple.
i expected that gsmarena guys will tell about the poor quality of the loudspeaker and i hope not to but they did so .... still some time for Sony to take our money
he compare the camera on manual mode which disregard the BIONZ engine processor of Sony...but hopefully software update will fix it .....If you will check the other comparison using Auto..Sony beat them all even the LUMIA 1020,because of its dedicated image processor ( BIONZ )
