My xperia Z1 just had a water damage because the flaps are not tightly closed....n now the screen are black but the backlight still on n the sound stil working when someone call...what should i do guys?how much to repair this prob?
My Xperia Z1 is getting heat when it's charging.... does anybody have this problem?
No Problem so far after the latest update to KitKat 4.4.x
- The battery is fine and charges to 100%.
- I can connect my phone to Ubuntu using the MBT USB connection with no problems.
- I am somehow deceived by the Back Camera which produces average results.
Overall; The phone is a great one. Far better than thos samsung, Iphone and other junkies.
My father bought it for me as a present! Using it for about five days! This phone is simply awesome! Mine's color is white and it looks just damn too sexy! Display quality is amazing! It runs no kitkat 4.4.4! The UI is nice & responsive! No overheating problem while gaming! I played asphalt 8 for about half an hour, did some web browsing, watched some videos and the amount of heat coming from it was completely bearable! Battery life is ok until now, stamina mode is great! My uncle bougt an iphone 6 plus recently, my aunt has a galaxy s5, and i can assure that despite being one year old, xperia z1 is still on par with them in terms of performance! Only problem i found that it's a bit large compared to other 5" phones, and it's superior auto mode isn't that great, u have to manually adjust some settings to fully unleash it's camera's capabilities! Go for it, u won't regret! :)
Phone was good before kitkat update, should stick back to jellybean. Issues after kitkat update
1.Phone hearts up badly
2.battery drain fast
3.battery refuse to charge after 83% (even after replacement battery by sony, still same issue)
Owned this phone a week ago. Awesome phone ever experienced. Everything is perfect. Bought that phone after going through so many sites, reviews,opinions of everyone.Finally got this smarty. The heating effect is very less than i expected after reading reviews. The camera is superb with full of clarity. But some times it says that camera is unavailable if we restart that then it works even if the cam is on for 20mits and above. the effect like background defocus and AR effects are not so good in fact not working. except this issue evry thing was perfect and the battery life was on peaks .Music in this phn is feast for music lovers. Go for it.Love you sony. Expecting more updates... :) :) :)
It was really good before the Kitkat update.
after updating, the battery life decreases significantly, ear proximity don't work sometimes. can't rotate to landscape at times.
I've been using it for 11mths and the charger flap needs to be replaced.
The worst thing about sony mobiles is after sales service please don't go for Sony. Pathetic service center guys and worst customer care I have seen. Same blue patch when taken picture in dark and bad battery back up
I am a victim of Z1. Pathetic phone and even more pathetic after sales services. Please do not go for this phone or any other Sony phones for their after sales services. The customer care people are very rude and so are the service centre people. The phone gets overheated with or without use and shuts down automatically on its own whims. Will charge and not charge again on its own whims. As a female its dangerous when u are alone and the phone shuts down and u cannot make/receive calls/texts. Steer clear of the phone. Unlucky that i decided to go for this phone when I had initially decided for Nexus 5. I have borne a loss of over 20k because currently the phone's value is a mere 16k.
ois, 26 Oct 2014hi!. i'm planning to buy this, but it is true that the battery life is poor and drains quickly... moreDepends what is extreme usage to you? Screen on time is around 4-5 hours what means if u use a lot of internet, gaming, video playing you won't do 12 hours mark.
If u need a phone mainly for talking then you can talk 24 hours ☺
The battery is normal, maybe poorer when comparing to sgs 4 which has 2600 mah battery instead of 3000 mah of z1, but i would say it is near sgs4, except activities related to screen, which is tn tft display, which isn't the most effective
This is a great 4n.. Battery life is matching or surpasses the performance of s4 or note 3. I have used both of them. Performance is also super smooth..
