W... moreHi i am using Z1 for 2 years, its a good phone...Camera is not good has its 21MP range it looks like a 12 MP quality only. The performance and battery backup is awesome after lollipop update. Heating issue got resolved. But sometimes some inbuilt app services like MHL, Contacts,etc,... gets unfortunately stopped don't know why that happens. Best way for the mobile to work is format your phone once every 4 to 6 months. I do this and my Z1 works fine, no heating probs and good battery backup
I really loved this phone. Especially the water proof aspect of it. Hands dirty? Just use the phone and rinse it at the sink later. Take it to the shower, watch Youtube or other videos on it, listen to music while you get wet.
Lollipop update went smoothly for me.
My issue with it is that my 1 year warranty just died. And SURE enough, 4 days after the warranty is dead my Xperia Z1's screen suddenly became loony. The resolution got really bright, like a white screen when it gets warm. Also a bunch of other probably LED related problems. Seems like I was unlucky enough to get a lemon phone.
I just want to ask simple cons and pros
Cause i am thinking of buying this device....
Please help me...
Any pakistani guy using it please share his experience with this phone

Very nice phone for the price we are paying. Eventhough it is 21 megapixel, camera is not that compared to iPhone and all. Sound quality and video quality is good. Good performance overall.

i recently purchased Z1 , the date of manufacture on the BOX is Sep'13. its almost 2years old.i had a little doubt about performance .
fortunately,the same thing happend to me. after 3,4 days , its getting over heated with no HD apps installed. i just installed only 4,5 basic apps.
its showing errors like CPU over heating and getting shut down.
after this , i browsed so many review website, and saw similar issues with them also.
so, think before you buy.

[deleted post]I'm not from india sorry I don't know how much It costs in india.
I found a few bugs in lollipop and here they are:
1- xloud manual setting is missing, it's in lollipop integrated along with ClearAudio+. so when you tick ClearAudio+ you will have xloud, when you don't you won't have xloud. I also think xloud is not working with all apps (It doesn't give the loudest volume in speaker) I noticed this with "MX player" when I compared it to Default Sony app "Video" which gives louder sound.
2- I can't reach app info from recent app menu (just like it was on KitKat).
3- When I lock the screen (by pressing power button) I noticed it stills active for almost a second "In a very dark light which is barely noticed". if you want to check if this happens to you go to a well-lighted place or under sun light, and lock your screen and stare at the screen.
-Lollipop advantages in my opinion are: Faster camera performance, better visuals and animations and colorful menus (Google Material Design), latest Home app and widgets and lock screen and themes (just like Z3), Ultra stamina mode, more options under "power management" in order to save battery.
I found Speed and battery life to be almost the same for me as it was in KitKat.
This is "my" experience so far.
