I feel like my mic pickup is lower than it should be. When testing with the Sony 'Audio Recorder' app, the mic response indicator is struggling to reach 50% and if I really try it's reaching around 75%. I decided to check as multiple have suggested they can't hear me too well.
Can someone please check and report back if they can get full response with their normal talking voice volume.
Prerna, 08 Dec 2015Had very bad experience with this phone, purchased the handset about one hand a half year ago... moreIt depends upon the unit you are buying... My Z1C (bought in India) was water damaged. I have recovered it... and it's running quite smoothly on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop build 236. Besides, any phone manufacturer when building/ creating a new phone, makes sure that the phone will last for maximum 2 years. If your phone is lasting more than that.. It simply means you have been really careful when handling your phone.
Had very bad experience with this phone, purchased the handset about one hand a half year ago now mother board, battery and display everything is gone. Sony is asking Rs 18000 to repair it. Highly disappointed with this brand even an 8000 phone will have better performance.
I upgraded mine to android v5.1, and I like it, very satisfied with this phone
The camera is good... It maybe a bit challenging at first to look for the best settings for different scenes, but once you get to know it, shots will be great. the design is elegant; the music player is awesome!!! I love the equalizer is...THE BEST. Clear highs, mids and deep bass. It can never be compared to Samsung's nor iPhone's. The data connection is SUPER. I also used Samsung S4, LG, iPhone and an older Sony Ericsson phone model, but the Xperia Z1 Compact tops them all. Did you say BATTERY? Yup, this phone has different stamina modes that extends your use of the phone. With regular use including data usage, it took 2 days before I charged my phone.
Now this phone has been a great and reliable companion for nearly two years, but the latest software updates wreak havoc on it's battery endurance. Android 5.1.1 / build 368 is a bit better than 5.0 but it's nowhere near the original battery life. Rather disappointing, really.
Sony may not deliver Marshmallow to the Z1 generation, but I sure hope they come up with a 'final' update that's better than this!
