The Z1 is a crap phone. I had my phone 7 day and it heated up so badly that the phone just died on me. Vodacom refused to replace the phone because the 7th day was on a public holiday and I was only able to take it to the store on the 8th day. I have had the ph a year now, not becaus I want it, but I dont have a back up phone. This phone still gets very hot and switches off. I will never buy a Sony again ever, the only good thing about it is the camera

I have been using XperiaZ1 for a month now, generally it's good device, but after updating through PC campenion, the calendar stopped working and always get a bothering pop-up message says "Unfortunately, calender has stopped"!
Please help me how I can fix this issue? or if there is any way to downgrade the calendar update.
Thank you guys.

I have been using the Z1 for over a year now. I tried many things with this underwater both on pool and beach but never once it failed to function. As long as flaps are closed, water won't get inside. I even accidentally dropped my phone 4 feet high facing the floor and I was so terrified when it happened. Luckily, I have iShield installed both front and back. I checked my phone for dents but it doesn't have one, more importantly, I tried operating the phone to see if something is wrong with the functionality and again, luckily, it still functions perfectly. I am so impressed with this Sony phone.

Bought a new z1 but it keeps playing demo video in sleep mode and the blue tooth nd wifi turns on automatically. The seller wants to flash. Is it ook.

So you mean Z1 and z2 are virtually the same? But why the z2 camera is better than Z1 although the same pixel and Lens size in short same specs except the processor.

Both devices have a big difference interms of camera (gpu) and speed.
