However, #7, you can tap to sleep using Nova Launcher, under gestures. DTTW, unfortunately, not available, but the battery life is worth it IMO. Also, after using camera, I'm impressed with outdoor daytime shots, less so with low light performance, but overall, camera performs well. Very happy with this phone. Flagship build and performance for < $500.

But the few games i tested, Asphalt, Clash of Clans and Zombie Tsunami it ran smooth and there was no battery heating or lag.
Took few shots with the Camera and in broad day light it is very good. But as i said i don't take pictures much so i can't comment more.
Are you talking about "Do Not Disturb Option"

A week ago i bought the XZ1 finally and here are my observations.
1) Build quality is awesome
2) Call quality and network is very nice
3) We can't change the LED color for calls, sms etc..
4) New SMS/Messages doesn't wake up the phone, but just vibrate and the led lights up
5) Lot of updates as the phone got released in 2017.
6) Video viewing and audio experience is so awesome.
7) Double tap to wake and lock is not available (already known)
8) No option to make the phone silent , only way is to reduce the volume to silent (kindly correct me if there is some option)
9) Battery, almost 1.5 days with average usage for me (no 3G/4G, few hours of Wi-Fi, 20-30 Minutes of Gaming, few less calls)
10) By default we get Swift keys, so Gboard needs to be installed separately.
11) All the updates given by Sony doesn't carry any Logs. So you won't be able to know what the updates contain.
I will update with more points as i start to use it more. Glad i made the choice over Nokia 8/OnePlus.
Today I came across a new ? Problem.
Today me and my family went to the nearby beach.. After spending some time when I want to take a snap it ridiculously says camera opens after Mobile cool down.
Totally upset. During the summer at our location it's already 43 to 44°C what to do if it refuses to open camera. So I already had this phone if I want to take a Pic I may have a personal aeroplane and go to kashmir and had a Pic. Very much disappointed.

Hello. I want to change my smartphone.. I want to know if Sony Xperia xz1 has the heart rate monitor with sensor?
Ceeboey, 30 May 2018Forgot to mention one thing, The camera. Does it even compare to the likes of iphone X or gala... moreWhen it comes to camera I would say rather this phone is not for people who just want to click and enjoy, to squizz all the juices from camera You need to know how to play with ligh and scene in background to get Front page magazine quality. If You're more amateur the S8 and X are more forgivable, but as tests show even X does struggle in low-light. On the other hand S8 to be great in darkness it hasn't got any 960p recording givin it was released same time as XZ1. I love sony phones, sony design so far, and XZ1 is my 6-th Xperia and 4-th from high priced flagship - league (L, M, M2 Aqua, T, Z1, Z2, Z3 Compact, XZ1 Dual). Comparing to Z2 the camera is... different. It catches a lot detail close and is quite wide in landscapes, on the other hand narrow Z2 cam gave me more detail and less noise, but wasn't as accurate in mixed lightning conditions giving results of too bluish or too orange night city shots, XZ1 knows where is orange and where is blue on the photo and there is no dominating hue on night scenes. Other things are true, but depends on model revision You get, My REV 4 1Q2018 is good on battery life and very fast in multiple-tasking, and the memory? You'll just love the 51 Gigs left by sony for apps and games, and put all photos to 64 gigs Extreme Pro SanDisk (R/W 120MB/s / 95MB/s) and You don't have to worry bout space anymore.
I want to buy Nokia 7 plus .
But i am sony fan. Sony xz1 .
Which is best friends.?
Nokia is old. Old is gold. Sony is a good company in quality camera. Etc.
Suggest me which is best in all?
Posting my honest opinion as a XZ1 user. First of all, This is an extremely underrated phone out there, the performance, screen, battery life is top notch and almost never heats up under heavy usage. Build quality is excellent and I actually liked the design so much despite of the HUGE bezels (which is not really a deal breaker for me). XZ1 won design awards in 2017 not without any reason, it is really well built and crafted precisely in every detailed. When you hold it and using this device you can definitely feel the quality in your hand thought it's slightly slippery. Camera performance wise, I think it's above average. I've to be honest I have high hopes before buying XZ1 but the camera does disappoint me a little bit, there are noticeable noise even in perfect lightning and under low light performance it just doesn't do well. Perhaps capturing scenes is great but if you're a person like me who likes to take photos of your girlfriend at most of the places then the camera might disappoint you as for some reason, the camera on XZ1 is just bad at capturing humans (lol), you will see there's lots of noise even if you focus on the human object.
All in all, XZ1 is still a underrated great performer that acts as a mini-multimedia powerhouse as my daily driver. I just love it!
