Jerin John, 19 Mar 2014Hi Guys, I have this phone since December last year (so almost 4 months) and know everything ... moreI had the same issue but u can reboot by pressing power and upper volume key ur phone will switch off and u can start, its a software issue, i am waiting to upgrade directly to KITKAT, hope this problem should be resolved...FYI offically kit kat is on, but not yet avaialble on my phone in india
I have this phone since December last year (so almost 4 months) and know everything about it. Amazing Camera, Amazing speed for multitasking, Also amazing battery life. Only issue that I experienced is that it's screen blacks out sometimes (that might be because of some virus coz I have downloaded a large amount of movies and everything) :P But overall the phone is a GIANT for all the phones in the market now.
Obviously the best phone I've ever used (my prev phones were Iphone4s n S4 n some Nokia)
Am buying a new phone...should I go for z1 or s4?is z1 worth it?what about the camera?is it better than s4?
I am puzzled at not most different but Z1 Z2 comming out every third month. Nobody can afford an upgrade or perk of bits n nxt no's game. No body can afford to change +600$ as previous one sells at half price, if you add that loss to new price its abt thousd. Its nonsense to upgrade to nxt model by renaming it 123456.Think fellas there is much more n Life than Cells.
IamIdiot, 18 Mar 2014I bought a Z1 and didn't know that it had a self-cracking screen... Sony has admitted that it ... moreWow..... Self cracking? I've been using it for more than 4 months already without encountering any problem. FYI, I accidentally dropped 3 times and got a little scratch on the corner of the aluminum housing. So far, I'm satisfied with this phone.
My brand new Z1 has started taking upto 8 seconds light up after pressing the silver on button. Any idea's?
I bought a Z1 and didn't know that it had a self-cracking screen... Sony has admitted that it has it... it broke and the warranty dosen't cover it, so 300e bye bye....
my z1 display sometimes shows something like waves especially when the mobile network data traffic is on. What is this ??? Is it normal ?????
Very good and classic phone...Never hangs as some people have commented. Have been using this phone for 2 weeks now and not seen a single scratch!Battery last 2 days with normal usage.No phone heating issue as well...The camera is the best, better than iphone n s4.
Iam a z1 user since one n half month.problem list witch I faced
1. Battery backup is about 15 hours with normal use(not heavy)
2. 0 to 100 charge it takes 4 hours
3.When I play movies in mx player after sometime automatically homescreen appear.
4.if I play a video I find volume zero.volume key not response.after poweroff it's ok.I poweroff cell 4 time in a day due that prob.
5.it's get too hot in 30 minute with browse
6.little bit hanging (not more)
hey, im tired of waiting.. where's the break?
been a huge fan of sony, user of xperia z and z1.
Ralph92, 17 Mar 2014the battery life in the Z1 gets really better in the 4.3 updateNo it doesnt, the display is too power hungry, some tweaking on the CPU speeds can only make a difference of less than 10%
Afzal , 17 Mar 2014my bro wanted to gift a phone to me he is asking me which phone do u like mich plz suggest me... moreNone of them. Wait for Z2. Have a look at Z1 Compact also, maybe you like it, it has a great battery but smaller display.
Z1 has very bad battery, buy it only if you keep your phone on standby most of the time and only make calls, any other activity will drain the battery really fast, even texting will have to be kept to a minimum. S4 is far better that way but its a ridiculous ugly and bloated phone, all the S-app garbage Samsung has installed is incredible and none of it works very well.
