the chef, 27 Aug 2013has sony corrected their display problem yet on their current xperia z.it goes dim after abt 3... moreYes they has already fixing the display dim problem,though some still experience it,but not as many as before,
Bout battery life its getting worse than previous update,Heat problem getting worse too
bout water resistent thing,dunno,never put my phone on water:p
So the differences between current update 10.3.1.A.0.244 (jb 4.22) and the previous what I really felt is:
-Previous update before current one-
got better battery life more control on heat problem(like browsing on your phone didnt make it hot at the back case(around the camera) after 10 minutes ,but its lag a lot bcoz this overheat control (apps or script or whatever its callled) made by sony,wifi signal receiver still sucks,carrier signal network still sucks too,improvement on display color,contrast,etc than previous update
-Current one 10.3.1.A.0.244 (jb 4.2.2)-
Battery life getting worse,heat problem back too,but no lag this time smooth as f*ck,better wifi signal receiver,better carrier network signal receiver
Even more improvement on display
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2013phone is too narrow, bezel too thick, screen too small, xenon would these, too bad, pass..lolz did you just say that the phone was too narrow???? Okay...that bezel size is nothing new from Sony. The only devices that had a tiny bezel was the Odin aka Xperia ZL and the Japanese KDDI carrier the UL. Other devices bezel been around that size.
[deleted post]yet, the z1 looks better then any phone any day of the week.

has sony corrected their display problem yet on their current xperia z.it goes dim after abt 3 minutes usage although the baklight time is set max. it continues dimming until you let it to idle forabt 10 minutes.2nd heat issues: the gadget goes hot easily same as s4. 3rd feeble voice call and audio. 4rd bad battery quality: the battery lifes shortened easily after few charges.5th it is not as claimed to be able to water resist. lots ofissues xperia z is spolit after being putto water n we hardly get the claim( please note this sony your service centre isnot very friendly upon replacement abt this water resistant device)
keto, 27 Aug 2013respecting others(brands) is respecting yourselfI was there was a like button in gsma comments....
5" screen only? but why it does looks vary big phone?
that bezel is shit!
Put xperia z side by side on any phone available. Xz is definitely a looker, even most review claims xperia z is a beauty. So z1 the next flagship should resemble it.
Sony is a GENIUS! the rest, they're all just copycats! Sony provided the camera modules to almost all known cellphone brands in the market today. When they released their 13mp camera sensor, the rest followed.. When they go for water proofing of their phones, other brands also followed. FYI.. Apple gets their phone designs from Sony because the late Steve Jobs was a big fan of the brand. Haters bashed Sony for their LCD's but if you really put it into the real world, it doesn't matter. People just overreact sometimes and it's the mindset that make things ugly even if they are not. I've been using my Sony Xperia S for almost 2 years now and to tell you the truth the LCD doesn't bother me at all, I still enjoyed watching HD movies, playing games, browsing the web, watching youtube videos, etc.. I've used samsung flagship phones, apple iphones, HTC, LG, etc.. and all I can say is, SONY tops them all!

Anonymous, 27 Aug 2013you call design a rectangle? you call innovation a phone with so much bezel? I doubt you know anything about designing,but fitting all this stuff in a symmetrical body makes many limitation and is much harder than putting them in an irregular body shape.and dont forget that was the rectangle design that samy copied apple gained some attraction.
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2013you call design a rectangle? you call innovation a phone with so much bezel? have you ever seen an ugly thing without a complex design? No, because simplicity and beauty are synonyms.
AnonD-147044, 27 Aug 2013Bezelperia Z1 The front is ugly as hell.lol almost all other phones have larger bezel,specially high end, so your point is irrelevant,plus bezel isnt big if it were big it would be big like in s and note and iphone series now those are big bezels
