I experienced long battery life and less heat and.......
Just one thing you must must must do
Reset factory before and after ur update
And dont forget update to the latest firmware that sony release
Thanks sony itis a great phone exept its very poor viewed angle screen
Bought a Z1 about 7 mths back but the initial excitement died down quickly. Have been dissapointed in the product because :
1. Within 3 mths had to get the phone replaced because it was defective & the experience of getting it replaced was not good
2. The 20+ MP camera is pathetic with a flash & hence cannot be used for indoor shots or in poor light conditions
3. The front glass has now cracked & display has also got affected but the phone cannot be repaired by Sony & they say it can only be replaced at a cost of 21K
4. Whats unfortunate is that after having paid 40K for a phone there is no way you can reach a single responsible Sony employee to ascertain the facts & the franchise is not willing to give the estimate in writing.
Hence this is just a caution to all potential Sony Xperia buyers that think twice before you buy this product because its good from far but far from good !

i have bought xperia x1 few days ago.
by mistakenly i have deleted game Asphalt 7 Heat files.
when i am unable to download the required files.
when i am going to download from play store it is costing to me nearly about 300
if any one is having that will you please upload those files for me .
My fone is heating and draining so fast,,,i only use my fone in just 8 hours is it normal?or im just assuming more and expecting more on 3000 mah battery?and the charging time is morethan 4 hours,,,,is it normal?

Brightness less than 40-50% doesn't work fine for me

Till now no issues and battery for me lasting for two days and no lags in any applications.
I just bought Z1 and according to your posts I understand the phone will be working fine if I didn't update to kitkat. Am I right or no ????
Please answer :)
