I have used it about 9 mths, overall is good no lagging and nice to use, but the only problem is because of the camera. There are milky shade in low light and the colour was not sharp and bright.

Now I have an m8 and there aren't many differences in term of speed. Z1 was a very fast phone. Kit Kat brought some bugs, but very good phone. Reception was unstable after kit Kat . M8 does better here. Battery is on par, maybe a little better on m8. Screen is a tad better on m8.
Camera was very good on z1, especially on daytime.
I would go for HTC if you like sense and BoomSound. If u care more for camera and waterproof then go for Sony. Very good phones both, good looking.
I would say that m8 is more beautiful than z1 or 2

looks to be a good device to use. The best part I loved is the Camera Quality. It is just brilliant. the only I had was with the screen unlock pattern, which just doesnt work and only works whenever I press the home key. As soon as the Home screen is pressed, phone appears to be frozen and then I have to lock it with the hard key and unlock it back again when the unlock pattern appears and when I unlock it, it starts working fine. If the unlock patter is removed, then phone works as normal.

The camera is not that great, I get milky shades very often. Otherwise a great phone.

I have used XZ1 for 1 week and here is my experience with this device:

performance:
performance is flawless and graphics are stunning. i have played real racing 3,asphalt 8, fifa 14 on this device and there was no lagging excellent fps,graphics and performance.

Display:
only problem is viewing angles other than this display is stunning.
Camera: The day i bought i used camera in night time(low light) and i was disappointed with camera but day light shots are superb. In low light there is a lot of noise. flash is also failed to resolve this but auto superior mode is good in day light. it takes good shots. overall camera performance is good not excellent but day light shots are better than any other device(in this price range).

Heating:
heating is the main problem that i faced. without flip cover battery temperature remains b/w 35-40 on slight usage but with flip cover it raises to 40-45 with slight usage even for 10-15 minutes(room temperature nearly 28-30 Celsius).

User interface:
average, light, needs some improvements.
Battery life:
battery life is average. nearly 4-5 hours of browsing time over wifi and at low brightness level. over normal usage u can manage to pass a day or even two with stamina mode. charging time is over 3 hours.

other than this i have faced a problem of screen flickering during call, display changing, or in chrome,don't know it is hardware or software problem. at this stage it is a minor problem occurring irregularly but annoying. (any solution will be appreciated)
i will recommend this device over s4,nexus 5 and lg g2.

Um... Which is better? Xperia z1 or Xperia z ultra. I really am interested in z ultra but my hands are small. Anyone having trouble handling z ultra? Or should I just take the z1? Same specs, better battery, smaller screen (love both devices though). And please, don't ask me to buy any other phone. I love this phones because of the pen mode. Don't tell me to buy note, alright?

I bought this phone four months ago and till the moment i did not had any problems. In my opinion is one the best android phones not only because of the specs but specially for the built quality. The aluminium frame is giving the phone a solid look and dissipates heat well, even you are playing games or run more applications in the same time.
