Sometimes it takes forever to open the camera, I even missed some important moments.
It wasn't laggy before updating to kitkat. I hope they will fix the problem soon.
This is a great phone in terms of performance but when it comes to camera it's another story, the pictures are great however it's not fast enough (after the update)
Building quality is so good,it feels good in your hands, also it can survive some drops without getting wrecked.
I'm really annoyed because the z2 has the ability to record high frame rate videos while the z1 doesn't, knowing that the hardware of z1 is capable to do so, it's just a little software. Dony why don't you do it, come on, I paid about 600$ for this. We deserve to get all the features.
Prince, 03 Jun 2014It s a so bad worthless mob it have many problem like overheating update main charging etcWorst phone I ever used....
After first few days, phone started hanging,,, and finally after 2 months, back camera stopped working...
Sony says, it will take 10-15 days for repair...
I have lost confidence in Sony...
Other than this , the power on button is hard and at times does not respond.
Few android features and functionalities are missing...
e.g. swipe right (contacts) to dial out and swipe left to SMS. No option to block caller .... no reboot option (have to power off and on)...

Anonymous, 02 Jun 2014I also don't have any problem with my z1 even after kitkat update... I wonder from all this co... moreI think that there are several charges/series. i live in romania, the phone is locked for vodafone romania.
My issues are related to kk, but don't get me wrong - phone is usabe, but not so stable, fast as it was on jb. Battery is also weaker.
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2014What's ur sony z1 model
I have sony z1 c6903 made in China and I don't have any problems it'... moreMine is the same model. C6903.
Hw is ok, sw is kk which is poor. In kk the phone heats up quickly and battery drains faster. There are lags and freezes ipwhen closing a call, or ussing messagins app.
My complains are strictly related to sw not hw.
Camera is good, reception strong but overall user experience got worst with kk.
Screen - like you said, but those issues were taken into account by me.
Its an awesome phone. I don't think there are any problems except few. Like the camera quality is not soooo gud like ypu would expect in a 20.7 mp cam... But still its very good... I dont understand why people complain about the sound quality... Its great.. Another trouble is overheating of the device on heavy usage... But that is not going to pose any kind of problem in normal usage. Its way better than nexus and way better than Samsung... U would not regret buting this phone... Itz great..
Tolu , 01 Jun 2014Hey man, have you tried using the speakers underwater? Do they work? Don't want to risk it so.... moreThe speakers do work under water but you can hardly hear it.
1 thing to note is when your speaker gets completely wet the sound is becomes muffled. The speaker will go back to normal after a couple of hours or when its completely dried.
