Cynet, 21 Sep 2013Hi everyone,
There is no debate Sony is the best brand ever out of all smart phones(I'm talk... moreCant say i agree about all your reasoning here, for example S4 is crap only because of the plastic back? No, i dont think so. S4 is not a bad phone, i have used it, but it wasnt as pleasant to use as my Xperia Z, the cleanliness of Xperia UI is priceless, the performance is excellent almost all the time (cant say that about S4, it has more occasional hickups, no wonder when looking at the level of bloat and useless S-apps and "features")
About Nokia vs Sony Ericsson in the past, i used to own mostly Nokia but when looking back at it now theres no doubt that the best feature phones i had was Sony Ericsson. Still, i dont want to mixup SE Xperia with Sony Xperia, after the buyout Sony did deviate alot from the previous SE lineup, Xperia U had its issues, Xperia P and S were both unworthy successors of the SE Xperia 2011 lineup. Sony didnt get it right until Xperia Z, if they had not deviated so much from the course plotted by SE they would have had a better marketshare now.
Jhefz, 21 Sep 2013hi guys does the xperia z1 have a overheating issue? nope
Sony phones look good only on paper..at least that has been the case till now. Their 1080p full hd display looks like shit, and samsung's Super Amoled display kicks some serious ass in terms of crispness and picture detail even if sony may have a higher ppi. Same goes for its battery bsckup..the real world battery backup us no where near to what the actually claim. 20mp camera, seriously man they think everyone's a fool.. sensor size is what makes the camera a good or an average camera, a 12mp SLR can murder any Xperia in terms of camera coz of its bigger sensors... more MP doesn't matter after 8mp in phones. And the price..always exxagerated pricing
Perfomance-Sammy ,, Camera and built-Nokia. Period
There is no debate Sony is the best brand ever out of all smart phones(I'm talking about overall picture)* Some smart phones for fast web browsing and some are good for photography.but they are not all rounders (you know what i mean). But Sony have these every things inside.No one can argue about that.I have experience with iphones, HTC phones, Samsung mobiles,Blackberry phones etc.All these phones have major failures more than Sony's phones at the same time.
I know that because my friends in my company use them.If there is a problem they come to me to solve it.Most of them I hate personally to blackberry mobiles (they all craps)and other hand iphones (after the death of Steve Jobs they can't even think beyond the old phone models look at new iphone 5s and 5c.Samsung S4 is also a crap(See its back cover-All cheap plastics) Most people buy these phones for passion not for reason in actual world.
My 1st phone is Nokia 3100 in 2004 next I buy Sony Ericsson J10i2 ,i shifted from Nokia to Sony for their specs. Now I'm using Sony acro s for nearly a year.I'm very satisfy with that. when any phone come to the market I refer it from this site for it and I know out of all these SONY IS THE BEST !!! Thanx sony ! I'm not a sony addict but I'm a system , spec, beauty & quality addict.So I think you understand what i try to say.To my knowledge Sony Z1 is the best now then LG G2 after Sony Z.

Anonymous, 20 Sep 2013Sony guys just make a device with these specs.. Dimensions: 130*60*8 ,4.6 inch 460ppi, Came... moreIm sure i am not the only one who dislikes these kind of posts. Thats what BlackBerry fans does, sit and dream up specs, with Android we already have so many great phones to chose from that we dont have to do that. Why dream it when you can live it? I guess you cant afford any flagship phone, thats why, but then you cant afford your dream phone as well so what difference does it make?
Md Iftee, 20 Sep 2013why r u guys quarreling here??... if u a sammy fan then buy a note 3 or if u a nokia fan then ... moreIts ok, the Z1 can handle critics and hate, its not a plastic weakling that need to be protected from the competition. This one can stand on its own, haters gonna hate and potatoes gonna potate.
Sony guys just make a device with these specs..

jana, 20 Sep 2013Xperia Z1 looks great but, disadvantages of this phone: 1. not sony xLOUD sounds like xper... moreAbsolute rubbish post, I now own this beast and it is simply awesome. You know what? I bet you can only ever use this phone in your dreams! Why? It is out of your league so please go post on a blog belonging to a make you like as you are seriously looking like a troll.
Guys da fact is dat Xperia Z1 is da best for now in da market...so jst dnt argue for ur S4 and nokia lumia.....!!
I Think This is The Best Phone Ever..Sony Has The Fastest CPU Among all other smartphones..
Also Camera Is AMAZING...
Sony Is Now The Leading SmartPhone
Samsung Flop, HTC like always flop, motorola,is it a mobile?? Nokia,in microsft's hand,
East or West Sony Is Best..
I read the review, sad about the defective lens, hope that quality problem is already sorted out, Z1 users in countries who already have retail units available are already sharing some great photos.
Battery should have anyone worried, all newer Xperia phones has great video watching times when using another player, the default Sony Movies app is using an underlying Media server that drains the battery at a very high rate. Install MX player and problem is solved.
For webbrowsing it is different, the GSMArena test simply uses a script to reload the same web page over and over again, this caused for example HTC One to last 10 hours. In a real life practical webbrowsing test however the HTC One lasted just a few minutes longer than Xperia Z. Scrolling, zooming, anything, those things totally changes the game, who here simply keep on loading and reloading webpages? However, this problem with the webbrowsing test is hard to do anything about, it requires big resources and repeated tests to do a more practical real life test.
I'll be getting one of these next month when retail units arrive here, i will be testing the display on the actual unit i will in the store first, side by side my Xperia Z to see if the Z1 really has bette contrast and wider viewing angles (note that i said wider, not better, i have not had any practical problems with Z and its viewing angles) and since i have a month of waiting to do i can keep watching online to see if there are any reports of lens alignment problems on retail units. Talking about alignment, my Z has a misaligned front camera that takes photos/video somewhat above the phone if looking straight at it, i almost never use the frontcam but it is a bit annoying the times i do. Clearly the front cam should face a little downwards, not upwards
