I live in Mauritius & have my Xperia Z1 for about a year. The only issue is that it still running on android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.I have not yet got any kitkat update. It that normal
shiju, 22 Sep 2014my phone is z1 but not supportted to ntfs 16 gb memmory card why?Android doesn't support ntfs. Only fat 32 or ex fat if you want to download files greater than 4 gb.
Ok now the problems are getting worse..the new update which has been recently released by sony is really buggy...the overheating is bearable but the screen flickering has gone from bad to worse others include the camera app crashes and freezes .. Gpe doesnt work and the phone slows down ..baterry is a issue too ...i am so unhappy i cant even sell this phone .
Amazing smartphone :
Today i played Asphault 7 and at the same time was talking with my wife for about an hour and i had no lag at all. Everything about xperia Z1 is just superb. I bought it about 2 weeks ago and i had no issues till now.

Screen on time is bad. If u use your phone for browsing the web you will be dissappointed. Screen is very bright, but takes a lot of energy. It is tn tft lcd or something like that.
Reception is good, but software and battery not that good. Why not z2?

It's been 15 days since I've got mine, and I must say I'm quite pleased with it. I have some background with Android phones, had an HTC Desire Z, Galaxy SII, SIII, Note 2, and now I've got my first Sony after Google's Nexus 5 failed me day 0 out of the box. I must say this phone looks gorgeous, it's one of the best looking phones I've ever saw. The interface Sony uses may not be the best but I think it's far better than the one used in Galaxy series. It's smooth and easy to use, but I miss that big clock widget HTC and Samsung have on their phones. The phone runs everything I throw at it with ease, Even games like Asphalt 8 runs without any problems. By the way, people are complaining about the battery life of this phone, and I must say. Although I used to have around 50% of battery with the Galaxy Note II when I get home around 00:30, The Z1 will usually have 20~30%. BUT I've been using the Z1 more actively than I had used the Note2, so I think battery is not an issue, at least for me. The only real drawbacks are the speaker, which is not very loud (and I have a problem waking up) and the problem with the anti-shatter film which is ridiculously easy to scratch. I ended up buying a protection for the front and back of it. I bought a case as well, but seriously, you don't wanna hide this phone, it's too beautiful :3 I swear, if I had the money I'd get Z2 and Z3, just to have all of them hahaha.

Battery is not quite what you would expect from a 3.000 mah and kit kat doesn't run optimal on z1. Camera is the same as z2, but lacking some sw enhancements. Iso max settings in z2 is higher as i recall.
Battery, with minimal, minimal use can get you to 2 days.
Very waterproof, screen of mine was good not old z panel, which was on first batch maybe.

I'm planning to switch to a Z1 from my old Z.
Does it worth it? I can live with huge bezels as long as build quality is good (that's why I don't want a G2).
Are there any problems with the Z1? Camera unit is I think the same as in Z2, does it heat up as well?
How is battery life? Would it last 2 days with minimal usage?
How is the screen? I heard that some of the Z1's came with the original Z's display panel, is it true? Is there a yelowish tint on the screen really?
I would be happy if some Z1 !owners! shared their thoughts.
Thanks a lot in advance!
Samsung and HTC solid user here but after switching to Sony, my Xperia z1 got the best spot for me. Super fast browsing in the internet, best battery life ever, best camera main and front., best sony exclusive updates, and best physical appearance. Me and my friend switch together and it fulfills our satisfaction :)
Hi guys.I want to buy this phone and i would appreciate if someone could give me some info on this phone.Does it overheat,battery life,etc.
