I have the Xperia Z1 for a few days now. The phone is amazing with really cool features. Its fast and can multi task too. Overall happy with my purchase but the one thing I am very shocked and disappointed is with the camera pictures. The photos are no way to 20mp at all. I find my iphone 4S taking better pictures.
Secondly the wifi strength of the phone is poor. I have a HTC Butterfly, Iphone 5 and 4S all will show full strength on the mobile the xperia Z1 shows only 1 bar.
If you main purchase for this phone is the camera I would strongly suggest people to take a photo where you have to zoom and than enlarge the picture. You will see the clarity.
hi frds sony xperia z1 compare to samsung galaxy s4 mini mobiles which one is better to buy please suggest me ......................
how come this doesnt have 4k recording ?? even though it has snapdragon 800 ? i know its not the most useful feature for everyone but still having it is a big plus ..hope it gets 4k with 4.3 or 4.4 updates
Raj, 21 Sep 2013Sony phones look good only on paper..at least that has been the case till now. Their 1080p ful... moreZ1 has biggest sensor on android blackberry ios!!
As for optics they are sony g lens which are basically minolta lenses as sony bought them out.
The sensor size of z1 is the same 1/2.3" as found in most compact cameras upto £300.
So image quality should be on par with camera.
Remenmber sony makes proffessional cameras lenses sensors for music film industry.
Also nikon sony pentax and others all use sony 1/2.3" sensors and aps-c slr sensors also full frame dslr sensors.
if you dont know cameras do not comment.
As for the fone alot of people complain about the bezels dont make the phone easier to hadle fact!
Viewing angles have been fixes fact!
Reason of extra size the fone is WATERRESISTANT!!!
CAMERA HAS BIGGEST SENSOR (apart from lumia 1020)
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2013I think look is same like xperia-zrlol neva mind if it has the same looks as z or zr... as long it looks sexy dan the plastic does matter
how come this doesn't have 4k recording ?? is has snappy 800 .. i know 4k may not be useful for everyone but still its a good plus to have it .. hope it gets 4k with 4.3 update or with 4.4
Dont really care about 5inch phone. Its good but waiting for the Z1 mini release as they are good to handle.
