i use this phone(z1) from last one year i am not too satisfy with this phone , i bought this phone because its camera performance reason is i love shooting pictures
but its too bad experience for me the camera quality too bad in low light area (in door) and its funny that in day camera shows heating problem n camera automatic shut down
sony please improve in next update (lollypop)
hassan muh, 15 Mar 2015is the new version of Android lollipop available for z1 ?I am using Xperia Z1. The update has not came yet. But according to Sony the update is coming soon within a week or two.
Cons in my xperia z1
1. Heating while using camera,playing games
2.the picture quality of the camera is very worst,pictures are washed out,niosy&blurry pictures
3.screen mirroring doesn't works on my lg tv, where the xperia z works fine
No one can answer if the Lollipop 5.0 update will solve a lot of issues/bags of Xperia Z1 esp camera and heating problem because Xperia Z1 is Old Smartphone today and the 1st priority of Sony is Z2/Z3 that is why this is the company technique to push the users to buy a latest phone to taste the new android version in 1yr only.
Big Question is:
Why iOS still to update smartphone from iphone 4s upto the latest iphone 6?????????
How can i change my front style like handwriting style and many others on my xperia z1? Please suggest me.
sometimes the camera does not work in 4.4.4 kik-kat.
and it heats up very fast.baterry also drain fast in 4.4.4 kik-kat.hope this will be solve in 5.0 lollipop.
sid, 23 Feb 2015Heating problem sucks really you are right bro...
Heating problem is a big concern for this device.
I got my unit yesterday and it surprised me with it's heating issues.
While using camera or playing any game or web browsing, it got soooo heated up that I couldn't do a phone call with it (can't place a heated device on my ear for more than a minute).
It feels irritating to carry a heating device in your pocket when you are on the way.
The front camera isn't good either (even a moto G 2nd gen phone is far better).
I have used a micromax phone for over an year and it never got heated up while playing games, browsing internet or calling.
I am wondering why didn't GSMARENA guys notice or mentioned it?
Z1 is a good ph bt after 1.5 year used my ph is a big problem face now, after 80% battery charge switch off the phone... nd highly hit the phone
No battery problem on my xperia z1. The only problem of my device is have a lot of lags esp camera sometimes can't open and sometimes blurred. I think Nexus 5 and Xperia Z1 has the same quality interms of camera lens because these two devices have a natural color image output. In short no saturation like Samsung S3, S4, S5, Alpha, S6.
Most people face battery drain fast with new kitkat firmware.But i never face this problem in build number108 and now 157.No battery drain fast.long last battery for me.
