Awesome phone, got it running on LP5.1.1 with CM12.1 as a daily driver and it runs like butter. Still a beast!! Its flawLESS!!
Firstly, I am utterly disappointed with the "waterproofed" Z1 phone-y, pun intended.
I was quite surprised to notice a damp SIM card after trying 2 days online with SONY Gurus to "revive" my dead Z1, while overseas, to no avail.
After arriving back home from a working trip, still with some hope, I called the helpdesk for advise and was directed to the service center to try and see if possible to rescue it.
I rushed down to the SONY center at 313 Somerset, last chance, hoping to have some help, alas, the customer service attempted the same thing that I had tried since yesterday and then confirms that it is dead, either PCB or/and battery may be dead, charges, likely in the 400-500 range. excluding the $10.70 to investigate the cause before repair.
Warranty over, so only way is repair charges.
To add further "insult" to my phone care, I was told that likely that the waterproof covers were worn out and may not necessary keep the water out.
I have been using a magnetic docking to charge my Phone-y. and SIM, data and micro USB covers are hardly opened, except for the last 2 days to check the device.
It pains to have so much faith on the device, to even convince my close family and friends to buy Xperia Z series.
So no thanks to the costly repairs.
No thanks to a phone-y "water-proofed" device.
No thanks to SONY.
Good mobile good camera, 2gb ram, android 5.0.2 nice mobile I'm love it.....
HI! After the software update of my new Xperia Z1 compact, I can not find an option to mute the speaker if I need to... Can not find an option to change the profili either... Does anybody have an idea how to fix the problem?..

Hi All, I bought Sony Experia Z1 Ultra phone from Poorviga show room. They requested me to get insurance for it but I thought why should I need to pay Rs.1,500? Thats the blender mistake. My phone was switched off within 10 days. When I bring it to Sony service center they said it has physical damage when I kept it in my phant pocket. There is a minor air crack in screen without putting it down. This is the 2nd phone from Sony which is not working within 3 months. Sony should not manufacture these kind of low quality phones. Sony is going out of race from TV, Audio & now mobile phone too. I hate Sony nowadays. Sony Service center is pathetic service with loads of fed up people. Don't go for Sony else take insurance.
Don't know where these guys complaining here are buying their phones, all of them, not just these guys here on z1, but if you look at every phone there are lots of people complaining, you can't buy something second hand or fake and complain about it, phone is great just received new update, camera is very good just don't expect something like a digital camera just because it has 20.7 mp, it's still better than most of the competition. Phone is blazing fast and the battery lasts me 2 days with internet always connected and brightness set to medium on auto. Only complains i would have about this phone is speaker not loud enough due to water proofing, microphone is good but can't record properly very high volumes also the screen viewing angles could've been better. But these things are just to insignificant considering how well the phone performs and looks. Who else says otherwise either has a faulty unit or installed who knows what on it.
I had this phone a year and a half and it's the best thing I ever bought. 1080p screen, 20.7mp brilliant camera, very accurate GPS and just brilliant overall. If I had one bad thing to say it's that the loud speaker isn't the best, but it's loud enough to hear notifications and calls and if I want to hear music I'll use headphones. It doesn't make me think any less of it. Brilliant phone!
It kept lagging all the time
The phone kept getting hotter
And the screen is so weak
Recent upgrade system, is good but version same. What else do you want from 2years old model. Its delicate but so do S6 Edge. Sony has lost rhythm n floating 3+ as X4 nonsense. This small upgrades cud got from update. Think no buyer to buy cell division. As from inception price is always higher. Live with it till is dies.
Really the z1 camera is very poor, i think sony team was a big mistake to written it. it should be 2.7MP, but by mistake they written 20.7MP. (may be sony team have no idea about the actual value of point), its really true, the picture quality of z1 is equal to nokia 500 (5MP). Am sure if sony provid same camera quality as nokia 1020 (41MP) then sony will be written yea... Its really 200MP. Universal best camera phone NOKIA. For forever.... Feel guilty sony and sink and die to water... Really... Castomers are your god, dont cheat them...
