Rubbish, I had a S2 loved the fact that I had two spare batteries for that depleted battery when caught short. Not having a changeable battery doesn't bother me at all now I have the Z1, I've just got a portable battery charger. It's called adaptability........

True executive users demand an exchangeable battery (only those who never lived that life don't understand the why). And no, the fact the laptop can charge the phone does not solve the matter at all (now what charges the laptop?).
The waterproofing also takes it's toll on sound volume, reception in fringe areas, "always in the way" port guards and the general feeling we get that our phone could be slimmer and slicker than it already is.

Every person differs. Some like sony, some like Samsung, some like Nokia...Etc...
And personally I think the Xperia design is great from the back, but boring up front and not ergonomic. The galaxy looks more pleasing up front, but not as pretty on the back as the Xperia. But is way more ergonomic.
Anonymous, 30 Jan 2014It's the best design, compare to any brand. Any brand you prefer?In your opinion. Personally I find extremely plain from the front and it's not very ergonomic.
If you want to talk design Motorola Droid Razr XT912 "original" for sure.
Anonymous, 30 Jan 2014Haha, same. $450 brand new. Whoever paid $900 is getting ripped off.That is not a manufacturer price.
The White Balance was already present at 4.2.2 Firmware on the 2013 Z series (Z,ZL,ZR). What a weird update
If it wasn't for the missing flash LED for the phone, I would get a Z Ultra. Maybe the Ultra 2 will have a better camera, because I use those daily for work.
I know not relevant to Z1 but my Xperia Z is still on 4.2 and I know its not Sony's fault but my carrier Telecom NZ are just so slow and painfull
