after updating to lollipop it was heating, battery draining faster than charging. I removed facebook, started using lite version then heating problems gone.
For camera I started using cameraMX ...better than default for low light.
Over all I am happy with this mobile now.

I have used the Z1 for exactly 3 years now. Last night I switched it off (battery at 63%), this morning I switched on and battery warning at under 15%. It is hot as hell and wont charge (it shows it is charging)....I tried putting the phone in the fridge (usual ploy with a battery), but noluck. Does the battery have a 3 year life span? Anyone?
R@V!, 02 Jan 2017Why does this phone doesn't supports 4G sim in the Indian edition handset??? As it is mentione... moreIn India we mostly get Sony Xperia Z1 C6902 version which does not support 4G C6903 supports 4G but is rarely found probably imported. That phone was launched when service providers were not even thinking about to provide 4G network in India. Airtel was the only one with 4G at that time and that too was limited to Bangalore. If there was 4G back then probably India would also have got the C6903 version of Z1 instead of C6902.
hello every one!
this is asim khan from peshawar city of pakistan. i am using sony xperia z1 since september 2015. i bought it pin pack. before this phone i changed many other phones due to technical issues. since i bought sony xperia i did not face any issue, my mobile use is very high due to working on internet for official purposes. no battery problem, best camera resolution, no hanging problem, only drawback is that it does not support 4g, at all i love to use it,sony is much better than samsung and blackberry but not better than iphone, i would prefer sony xperia to every one.
Why does this phone doesn't supports 4G sim in the Indian edition handset??? As it is mentioned in the specs as well.
Chap1, 29 Dec 2016And i firgot to answer you(lol); yes,u can update your phone,it works great on 5.1.1; the only... moreThe only problem I faced is with battery draining. Long back when Lollipop was releases I directly upgraded to it from Jelly Bean and faced lot of problem due to comparatively faster draining of battery used it for 10days then I downgraded back to Jelly Bean. Now 3 months back after reading lot of reviews I again upgraded to Lollipop hoping that the battery draining will get set to normal. But even after three months I can say that Jelly Bean provided a very long battery life in comparison to Lollipop. It still drains lot faster than Jelly Bean. Nothing can be done about it as hardware used in Z1 was better optimized to run with Jelly Bean.
One of my family friend bought it last year(2015) which came in with Lollipop pre-installed. But it still drains battery faster than my Jelly Bean Z1. He actually bought it to get longer battery life as he was fed-up with SAMSUNG products. He is now asking me if there is possibility of downgrading Lollipop to Jelly Bean.
Note: In both the cases I skipped Kitkat update so cannot tell the difference in battery draining between Jelly Bean and Kitkat or Kitkat and Lollipop.
Lax, 09 Dec 2016Same problem. My 0ne shutdown after 50%It's a software problem. Plz reset and check again. If it is not possible you can root the phone, it'll probably work better

I just rejected all these updates due to many reviews on websites and youtube, even my friends are complaining from Lollipop. But I want to know how much is your screen time on due to a full charge, I used to have almost 6 hours but lately I'm barely having 4 hours. Last ques, Did it require a factory reset after the update to fix any bugs or junks? Thanks..
