i have z1 & g2
both great phones
z1 losses in battery life.
they are tie in camera quality.
I bought this one. Really cool to hang with. It have some disadvantages that I noticed while using. 1- No 3g video call(shocked when found out really an embarrassment), 2 - heats frequently, 3 - Battery lasts only a day. 4- I don't like basic email app. Because it stores only 25 mails. This is all I have seen for past 15 days.

However, I have the ZL and is it really worth the upgrade? I just want also the feedback of those who bought from the online store since z1 has hardware problems. Its an early batch problem.

Brpi, 01 Nov 2013Hi just want to know if anyone (Filipino) here bought xperia z1 from hotgadgets? is the device good?If you think to buy this XZ1.. this is a high-end phone of 2013 comparable to LG G2 (That has no Expandable memory and only 13mp camera)
If you have Xperia Z then u know the problem of glass phone..
In XZ1 it has better performance because of 2.2 Quad snapdragon 800 and the OS for low powered device and longer battery life 3000mah
got 20.7mp :)
the phone bezel is larger than Xperia Z but if you want to buy smaller XZ1 you can wait for the Xperia Z1 Mini or XZ1F that will be nxt year Jan-Feb
smaller 4.3inch screen same spec of Xz1

Washed out a little and when you tilt it a bit. Please search on you tube at screen/display compair and then decide.
As i have told the screen is a little washed out compared to htc one, lg g2 or sgs 4, but should be ok for movies and pictures where x reality kicks in.
Try it also in sunlight where is better than those phones i mentioned.
I think you have the normal/good panel but is important that u feel this.
Same here, using xz1 for almost a month. This smartphone is great, no lag (also my xz), good battery life (more than 2 times the battery life of xz usage), no hanging (also my xz), good camera (better than xz), no heating problem (better than xz)........best smartphone I've ever used.
When you looking for a smartphone on stores, you all must be aware that all the displayed smartphone has maximized its brightness setting.. So it will look very bright and very nice..
I've looked to three flagship smartphone which is Xperia Z1, Note 3, LG G2.. All of them is very nice and each of them has its specialize..
In the end, i bought xperia z1 because i like the design and its material which is aluminium and glass, it makes feel like more premium..
So far, there is no problem with this phone and i'm very satisfied with its sensor camera performance.. The focus camera is very fast and excellent..
I just recently purchased the Z1 and so far it hasnít disappointed me. I chose it over the Note 3 and iPhone 5S.
It runs very smooth and fast, no lags whatsoever.
Camera is very good. Very impressed with the sharpness and the colors are very realistic.
Its screen is one of the best in my opinion, very clear and very responsive.
Battery life is great too in Stamina mode.
What I like best about the Z1 is its design, itís about time android phones should be built with a premium feel (like the z1 and htc one). Itís big but it just feels right in your hand Ė this is something iphones are lacking in my opinion. Iíve always liked the iphoneís design but then they donít feel right (too edgy for me). If the z1 was made a bit smaller however, I would have given it a perfect 10 for design. Iíve always had Galaxy phones, theyíre packed with features but then they feel cheap. I think the z1 is perfect for those who want an android phone with great performance and great design. Oh, and the z1 being waterproof is a bonus too!

Just got a LG G2 from Panamoz and sorry, it does not match up! Yes, its good but not really in the Z1's class as an all round phone. Nevertheless, the best two phone around in my humble opinion are
1. Xperia Z1
2. LG G2
3. The rest battle it out!

Slayershine, 31 Oct 2013I have been using xperia z1 for the past one month and i have to say it is the best smartphone... morei want to know from users who really own this phone first does it overheat during browsing and games ? and how much does it take to overheat ? second does the camera have many bugs or its normal ? please reply as soon as possible am dieng to get this phone but am worried about the overheating and camera proplem just to know could i live with the heat issue or its gonna bother me
T WAR, 31 Oct 2013I own one and have used it for a month. Its a good phone but: 1. The built-in screen protector... moreI agree with 1,2,3 but 4 i don't. They aren't that bad. You can tilt the phone. Sure not as much as an sgs 4 or htc one or lg g2 but you can see what's on the screen and in day 2 day usage you are not disturbed by this issue.
However, scracthing so easy is not ok. A phone has to endure and last not to wear off so quickly. I totally agree with you. Maybe they will fix it somehow in the future...
zedsmart, 31 Oct 2013any body whos making negative comments on this phone.... surely dont own it....I own one and have used it for a month. Its a good phone but: 1. The built-in screen protector scratches amazingly easily, its a joke for a phone this expensive 2. The Sound quality when you do not use the headset is fairly shit. (Water proofing I guess) 3. The camera with the auto mode is not very special. 4. The viewing angle of the screen is terrible. On the other hand its amazingly quick, the screen when viewed directly is good and I like the actual design of the devices. Also its the best water proof phone. I like it, buts it's a 4/5 phone. Good but not perfect. I guess if you are coming from a Galaxy S or something you will be amazed.
