Anonymous, 12 Jun 2021DON'T EVER THINK TO BUY THIS SHITTY PHONE! Very very slow, cannot take long video using ... moreMany complains on camera features, like restrictive cam2 API and grainy low light photo quality. Sony not doing so well on softwares, even though their camera hardwares are very capable. Not to mention DRMs that shorten battery life and standby drainage that hardly be avoided because they are 'baked' at kernel level, no apps could fix them permanently.
DON'T EVER THINK TO BUY THIS SHITTY PHONE!
Very very slow, cannot take long video using camera, it will burn your phone! seriously i never have phone as hot as this crappy trash. Low battery short screen on time! For hotspot? meh, this phone will reach 90°. And lastly, don't ever use this trash for playing game or daily driver
Worst android ever
It a great phone but if for heavy using not recommended btw, how to use hotspot on au set?
review and reuest of assistance:
It's a good phone but ive had it and a z5 and i loved using them playing games taking pictures listening to music...etc butt I've had a few issues using them over the years which were 1 some "lagging" using the camera especially when recording video which becomes a lot more frequent when storage gets a little low and the speakers tend to have a buzz to them after a while and it happens sooner then later ifu use it under water (even just splashes if its directly on them) and lastly the camera lens (xz1) is very vulnerable due to it being above the lvel of the rest of the phone and having a hard time finding a cover doesnt help and theres no replacement for it and it's software is not being updated in my region(jordan) and its very hard to find any parts as the agents keep getting changed and they don't get spare parts covers /screen protectors
right now my screen is broken and im still looking for one if someone can let me know
where to get it (online or otherwise)thatd be great
sorry this isnt very well written (i need to sleep)but i hope the information is clear to whom it may concern
COOOOL, 22 May 2021Guys, You think i should update to android 9 or stay at android 8....... Can you all give a re... moreresult may vary on each phone... many say it best for performance on oreo... but me myself, on pie.. it work well both for daily driver or even gaming...
but note that some user report bugs when used for gaming on pie...
keep stay on native OS (ex: xz1 japan version, docomo/au/softbank) don't install global os version)
if urs is global version unit, pie is best in battery life
Very nice phone! My screen broke, but it served me well until that happened! Fast, reliable, good looking. Camera OK, but could have been better. Easily dented ande scratched back casing due to aluminum material. Still prefer it contra glass.
Guys, You think i should update to android 9 or stay at android 8....... Can you all give a review for android on sony xz1.
Best phone I've had so far. They just don't make them like that anymore. I love its RECTANGULAR display, not that rounded garbage they put in newer models. I LOVE its 16:9 screen. Much better than TV remotes of 21:9 Sony makes now. Mine might have died on me today, but it is an excellent phone even in 2021.
mr.bun, 15 Apr 2021after update os9 my xz1 freze n hot. now i usei it with oled saver apps but touch not smoothly againgive a factory reset. Before do, Please backup/sync your data.
You can always downgrade to Oreo if you're facing issues on Pie. No root is required, even if your Xz1 on locked bootloader is still possible. Tutorials can be found all over the net, just search on Newflasher (do not use Flashtool)
do not buy this one xz1, auto restart issue cannot fix, when play game or no play game, will auto restart, terrible phone.
