is there any difference between using SUS (Sony Update Service) and PCC (PC Companion)for updating android 4.4 KK? as I used the PCC to update the JB to its last version.
How long the battery lasts with you while using mobile data and Bluetooth on all the time on JB ?
I have my z1 with model C6903 4.5 months now. I'm still with android 4.3 JellyBean. I still haven't upgrade to KK because of the negative reviews i read about it. I'm not a heavy user yet. I start my day @ 7:00 am with my phone charged 100%. with mobile data on. No Bluetooth as i don't have the gear, but I need to have a wireless headset to handle calls while working. I talk like average 30 minutes a day. I check my e-mail 2-3 times a day. usually i don't send sms. But i check my facebook a lot and I chat using whatsapp a lot. I also browse the internet a lot. all that with STAMINA mode ON. I also use clean master app & Battery Guru & advanced task killer to save the battery as much as possible. No gaming most of the time, once or twice every 3 days. I also listen to music for 60-90 minutes a day. Screen brightness is less than 50 % adaptable to light after all that my battery became 15-20 % at 7:00 PM. then I have to turn mobile data off and the brightness to the minimum in order to keep the battery till I get home to recharge it. Noting that in Stamina mode am adding only some of the system files in the active in standby. although I've like 160 application installed on my phone. SO do you think I have a problem with the battery ? or am I just over reacting, or had a better expectations for 3000 mah?

If you like a smaller screen and you can live with than z1 compact is better. Sure, reviews should be read to see how is reception, call quality. Check www.connect.de for a review. It is a german site.

Even on the car with music on i can hear it. Honestly is not that bad. Is is passable. Yes, the sound is not so clear with xloud on, but you hear it.
If u are in the market ...i really can't say.
I suggest you worry for:
- size, is a little big and heavy
- screen isn't best, viewing angles are pretty bad, colours are a little bit washed out
- battery drain quickly when browsing
- maybe, check how loud do you hear the loudspeaker if u have a sony store where they have z1
- and most of it: current kit kat software (built .757)
Even now, i don't want to exchange it. I'am just unhappy with sony support.
Issues on 4.4.2 Kitkat? And will this phone be able to get new softwares after kitkat?

That may not be an issue but if ear speaker is low then it would be problematic to listen from other side in the market or in noisy place. So how loud the ear speaker is? Are you satisfied with ear speaker? Please suggest.
rahul, 13 May 2014But z1 will no longer be getting updates. What do you say? Also Z1 using old screen technology... moreAbout getting updates i am not sure. There isn't any manufacturer to guarrantee you how many updtes you will get and for how long.
As for the 3000 mah battery - i agree. Screen is an tn lcd which is power hungry. That's what i said by expecting more from a 3000 mah battery.
rahul, 13 May 2014how about the call quality, ear speaker(used while calling), main speaker and heating issue? S... moreThats a hw limitation. It isn't loud but i didn't have any issues. Call quality is ok, not the best but ok. It is a little metallic.
nickysor, 13 May 2014I would say to go for z1. It is a tad better than rest. Nexus 5 is ok except for battery and camera.But z1 will no longer be getting updates. What do you say? Also Z1 using old screen technology which downgrades its performance even if it is having 3000 mAH battery.

They say It is difficult to listen any song on speakers when you are in market with normal noise condition.

[deleted post]I have mobile data on all the time but with stamina mode. My normal usage takes me near 1 day and 7-10 hours. When i wear the smartwatch and have bluetooth on it last 26-28 hours. I am not a heavy usage: talk about 10 calls a day, i check the email 5-6 times a day, send about 10 sms per day and read/browse the net for about 10-30 min a days in 2 or 3 rounds. And i do check 2-3 times a day the facebook but in short burts. Calling is no more than 3-5 minutes/call as average.
My screen on time is about 2 hours and 25 min.
When i play asphalt 8 i get near 3 hours of playing. I think that on jb i was ablea to pass 2 days mark and screen on time was near 4 hours.
Display brightness is 50% or so and adapt lightining.
It is not bad after all, only screen on time seems to be low, but talking is good. I must say that i was expecting more from a 3000 mah battery.
rahul, 13 May 2014What were the issues in Z1 when it runs on 4.3 JB?Issues on jb?! Hhmmm...i can't tell now. I think that weren't too many or too serious.
Nfc seems to be working much better on kitkat than was on jb.
Battery was better, camera the same but no freezing. In jb i didn'y have scene mode.
Was a very fast, reliable phone, with sufficient battery back up.
One of my best phones ever...on par with nokia 6230i bach in 2005:-)

rony, 13 May 2014Hi guys.. I have note 3 and I don't like it it's so big & I dropped it once by mistake it ... moreZ1?is just a little smaller than note 3 and battery isn't any good.
I think is not worth exchanging. Stay with note. Z1 looks better. That's the only advantage I see.
I am using z1 for more than 6 months.
