Z1 is newer model, so it obviously has better specs (it's more expensive too). I personally prefer Z's physical build.
rusinstein, 04 Apr 2014a little info for those who may be asking about the type of glass Xperia Z has. I emailed the ... moreIts typical Sony to not specify detailed supplier info. Both Dragon Trail and GG are types of tempered glass.
In any case Sony PH would not sit on those details, neither would customer service at Sony Japan for that matter, what they did was read loud for you from the whitepaper. There is absolutely no need for customer service representatives to have this info.
monster, 03 Apr 2014How about the batery?battery is quite normal. moderate use can take maybe a day or less. if you use it less then maybe a couple of days at best. this is pretty standard stuff. a device this powerful will definitely consume it's battery quickly. it's large screen and 1080p display really eats a bunch of it's power.
a little info for those who may be asking about the type of glass Xperia Z has. I emailed the tech support of Sony here in the Philippines, they said that Xperia Z's front and rear covers are both tempered glass. not dragontrail in front and gorilla glass on the back. just simply both glass are Tempered type. and both are covered with Anti-Shatter Film (ASF as they call it), and removal of the ASF will not void your warranty EXCEPT for the screen itself. if the glass breaks, the warranty will not cover it. but other than that, everything else is still covered in the warranty.
I'm still debating whether I'll buy a Tempered Glass screen protector to cover over the ASF or just remove the ASF when it gets scratched enough. anyway, I just thought I'd share here.:)
This phone can support usb on the go or not?? Anybody can answer me..

Thank you all for your opinions and answering my post! Helped me a lot to decide! :D :)
I was interested in buying this phone but after reading negative reviews about it's poor camera & low sound i'm in a set back.
mine manufactured 14W05 AAK..what does mean AAK ?..not AAC..pleaseeeeeeee replay
I have heard that xz heats easily but a reviewer said that you don't have to worry about it, I also heard that screen cracks easily, should I buy this or the Galaxy Core.? Also is this laggy when you play heavy games? Please reply & post more info bout this phone if you are already a year user of this phone
Garfield Quek, 03 Apr 2014will this phone lag????Nope.
I'm using this phone for more than 6 months and I've never experienced any kind of slowdown.
Abid, 02 Apr 2014Can anyone please tell me about the audio quality, camera , durability & about expandable ... moreso much mixed reviews about this phone. I for one love it. audio output when using good headset or headphones is excellent, very clear, but it's loudspeaker is not very good. camera is decent, good enough for well lit environment but it's not great for a 13mp camera. the phone can support up to 64gb memory card, I don't see the confusion there? screen is really good, UI is very smooth. overall a really good smartphone.
the only thing that's bothering me is the anti-shatter film, it gets hairline scratches way too easy. so i plan on getting a tempered glass protector for it. the phone package comes with a couple of screen protectors but I didn't bother using it since it'll get scratched very easily as well. so for me, that's the only con I have with the phone. the fact that we still have to buy a good screen protector considering the price that we pay for this phone.
