Z1 is the best phone but his sound quality is not better and one more thing his camera results when zoom the pictures the photos clear not looking
I am using z1 for nearly about 4 months it's a good phone overall but it lags behind in 3 -4 segments first the quality of the speakers is really bad it have very puny speakers 2nd it pauses mobile data when screen is locked as a result all the downloads and msgs are paused! The looks of the phone is really awesome and it's really fast the screen quality is also very good the most sadest part of the phone is the camera despite of 20 m.p the image quality really sucks!
The Z1 is an amazing phone but full of serious flaws the most prominent being the self cracking screen, it is the most fragile phone I have ever owned, after having it for 6 days the screen cracked whilst in my pocket and sony are charging me approx $300 aud to have it repaired although it is a known fault which also voids the water proofing. The software updated from jelly bean to kitt kat also has numerious negative effects which I admittedly never did because of other reviews on the software. I was a loyal sony consumer (having 3 sony phones previously) untill this one, I will not be buying another sony after this one
FADY, 06 May 2014Hi All, Please i need your advise. if i added all installed applications to the STAMINA mod... moreIt doesn't do anything but pauses the receiving of mobile data when the screen is off. It saves a lot of battery life and won't negatively have an impact on apps unless you like receiving bbm msgs as they come in.
Lovro, 06 May 2014Should i buy z1 or z1 compact? Both phones seems great but i want phone that have good gaming ... moreGo for Z1. Z1 will full fill all of your requirement.Compact also full fill your all expectation except gaming as display is small. Average size of display for gaming should be 5 inch. Z1 has 5 inch display.
FADY, 06 May 2014Hi All, Please i need your advise. if i added all installed applications to the STAMINA mod... moreIt will affect the applications, since you're telling the phone that while in Stamina Mode your applications will not be working until you turn on the screen.
Please i need your advise. if i added all installed applications to the STAMINA mode plus all systems files will that be better for saving battery or it will negatively affect the phone performance ???
thanks in advance,
Lovro, 06 May 2014Should i buy z1 or z1 compact? Both phones seems great but i want phone that have good gaming ... moreI'm going for the Z1 Compact, you should too. It's awesome, the viewing angles on the Z1 are bad but Sony has given the Compact an IPS panel so viewing angles are sorted. Battery will also last longer on Z1 Compact as its not full HD like the Z1 and it has a smaller screen but same proccessor as the Z1 so the Compact will be faster than the Z1 and the battery will last longer. Those who are moaning about battery life on the Z1 you are telling lies, the phone has Stamina mode which saves a whole 40+% of battery life. Samsung n Lg have their own problems.
ashik799, 05 May 2014Whats the default android version in z1? Willl u recomend udating to kitkat ?What about the di... moreDefault is jellybean's 4.2. You can opt for kitkat by using PC companion software. Don't update through OTA. Display is great . More natural realistic colour instead of over saturated pictures like Samsung,LG,HTCetc. It had some viewing angle issues if you look it from more than 120 degree. But in KITKAT update problem almost resolved. Picture clarity got better. Even you can have option to balance the screen whiteness. Pictures are razor sharp. You can visit nearest mall for a review.
Lovro, 06 May 2014Should i buy z1 or z1 compact? Both phones seems great but i want phone that have good gaming ... moreXperia z1 , it has large screen , powerful life battery .. But suck on screen , it only tft screen not like xperia z1 compact have ips screen ..

Should i buy z1 or z1 compact? Both phones seems great but i want phone that have good gaming experience,good music and good camera,whats your advice?
Assure, 05 May 2014Sorry to tell all of you, why are we grumbling on kitkat, as when it was JB we were dying fr ... moreYou are right. The only thing is that i won't buy another Sony flagship again. I will go with htc or samsung who are making 1 flagship per year not 2-3 and they have better support than Sony. I am very disappointed with support for z1. I have realized that my 6 months phone is obsolete. Not ok for me as i can't afford to replace it every 6 months.
This phone is a DISASTER, NO value for money, wasted 40 grands on this stupid electronic device. SAMSUNG phones are so much BETTER. Buying Sony was a major BLUNDER, the word itself doesn't suffice. I am so disappointed with the usage. It hangs so much, touch screens doesn't function well, went to the store but didn't help much. Inshort, don't waste money on this trashy phone
dr.madhu, 04 May 2014I bought experia z1 four months back. ...I was so happy that finally I got my dream mobile but... moreHello maam,
Can u see wich software update it is? Is it the .681 or the .757? If it is .757 then it shud be fine.
Basic the problem with kitkat (latest version of android) is dat u have to do a fresh install.
1). Take a backup of all data in ur fone using sony pc companion software,
2). Install the new software,
3). Again restore the data using sony pc companion software.
We all Z1 users have done the same. Then, Z1 works fine & will be back to being the best fone dere is.!!
