No battery problem on my xperia z1. The only problem of my device is have a lot of lags esp camera sometimes can't open and sometimes blurred. I think Nexus 5 and Xperia Z1 has the same quality interms of camera lens because these two devices have a natural color image output. In short no saturation like Samsung S3, S4, S5, Alpha, S6.
Most people face battery drain fast with new kitkat firmware.But i never face this problem in build number108 and now 157.No battery drain fast.long last battery for me.
Smile, 13 Mar 2015Hi, Here's to the people with all the touchscreen issues, first thing you need to do when y... moreYou didn't mention about your waterproof experience with your xperia z1 ! I wanna know that is it good enough to handle a bowl of water about 12inches depth for 5 minutes ? (fresh water) ? My 2and half years are dependent on your "good" or "bad" answers ! Please reply soon !
Here's to the people with all the touchscreen issues, first thing you need to do when you get the phone is put a screenguard on it, front & back, I did it and have never put a case on it, I just replaced the screen guard after 8-10 months and the screen is as good as new, also dont (even by mistake) take the shatter proof coating off the screen
Then for the people who are cribbing about battery, if I charge my phone 100% in the morning when I leave home, and the internet is on all the time, and I keep it on stamina mode, when I go to sleep I still have around 35-45% battery left.
Then for those who crib about the camera been bad, I cliked pictures of my son in manual mode & have taken printouts of 3feet by 4 feet, crisp & clear, no issues
Also I putchased the phone on 23rd November 2013, since then not even a single time I remember my phone has freezed or lagged, its completely smooth (FYI I run Go launcher not the default Xperia launcher, coz there are a lot more options in go launcher)
For the people talking about durability/self cracking, My son has thrown the phone 5-6 times (every angle possible, corners, flat on front, flat on back,) & the phone has nothing but minor dents on the corners, thats it.
It was the best phone when it was released, (of course later on they released Z2 & Z3/Z3C)

asif, 08 Mar 2015Dnt buy z1 after few mothns camera takes blurry pics with lot of noise u can it on net also...The latest firmware, build number 157 improved camera, Use it,not bad,At night time, shot with manual iso 200 or lower.
I feel the latest update of kitkat(build number157) improved camera in 20.7mp mode.a little more detail,not only Z1 but also Z2 improved sharpness in 4.4.4.But Sony need to change new camera software,20.7mp must be better than this,need to reduce noise in zooming photos and in video record.need faster shutter speed and focus.Bcoz Sony is the world's famous camera company.I love Sony plz make it better.
