Yesterday I was in a shopping mall. I had the chance to compare a few models and brands with each other. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the screen of this phone. How can a phone in this price have a bad screen. The screen was so faded as if the colors had lost half of its tones. What happend to you SONY? I remember the days when I was proud with my K750 etc. The screen of that days were much better.
Even the standart TFT display of Samsung phones are much better than this display. SONY must reconsider his department of the display. I was really disapponted.
go for z1. i have note 3 and it hangs frequently. it also heats up easily during wifi.
I have just purchased the Z1 on over the weekend, I have used ACRO S, than a one years old Note 2 and finally Z1. The Sony UI is not as good as SS, Z1 battery performance isn't as good as written on the review (users pls share with me Z1 battery performace,I dont use the phone frequently). Completed my first 8hours charged and when phone was on, 5 minutes later it shows 99%. From my experienced with both Sony and one SS Note2, users from NOTE2 should not wasted money to buy Z1. Sony UI still cannot match SS. Now I will have to use my Z1 for 2 years...bohh hoho:(

Fabulous.. Sewms like a worthy update... Will have to wait though as o2 usual delays... Thanks cheif.. :)
I'm here in Houston, TX. I was considering the Z1. But after reading the article, "Sony Xperia Z1: 3 months on," —Android Authority, I have thus decided against it.
1. I've seen this phone personally at the Houston Galleria. It was full of scratches—some huge. So, this is not a demo model issue as some have suggested. A phone without something similar to Gorilla Glass is outrageous.
2. The SIM is a chore to insert or remove. Yikes!
3. The Sony Store told me updates are only available via a computer if outside the IME region. Thus, an unlocked Sony Z1 is a dubious proposition for frequent travelers. An unlocked phone, especially with so many bugs, not easily updated is outrageous.
4. I watched the drop-text on YouTube. The phone would not respond after the first drop. Yikes! What good is water and dust resistance on a device so easily damaged if dropped?

For browsing, they're both as good as each other, although the Note 3 has the slight edge due to a bigger screen (that's it). Playing games? Both as good as each other.

Najwa , 28 Dec 2013May I know is it sharp when zooming? I was about to buy Z1 yesterday but the seller told me ... moreDude, go read phone arena's camera test. The Z1 has the best camera of all android phones and was only beaten into second place by Nokia 1020 which has 41mp!
