Just update to kitkat,saw a lot improvement.yes,speaker sound a bit lower than before but it's not a big problem to me.
AnonD-251547, 07 Apr 2014Then is it better to shift to Nexus 5(32GB)....rather than Z1???Honestly i can't say anything about nexus 5 cause i didn't have it but one major issue is the battery which is kind of poor. And it is a matter of taste. Rest of the phone seems good and stable
Z1 was very good with jelly bean and hope will be again after a patch to fix issues that appeared after kitkat update
If you were to buy a phone today i would choose from Z2, htc one m8 or s5, depending on preferences.
For me Z2 is an update from z1, but is surely better
As for the quality to price ration, then nexus 5 IS ONE OF THE BEST CHOICES
Facing exactly the same ringing failure issue. Any suggestion????
AnonD-209094, 05 Apr 2014None of them are very good. Wait for Z2 and S5, then make up your mind. Thanks man, cheers
nickysor, 06 Apr 2014True. For me is enough to have 12 gigs for apps. Then is it better to shift to Nexus 5(32GB)....rather than Z1???
which phone can i buy? SGS-4 OR SX-Z1? I AM CONFUSED ABOUT IT. any one can pleas give me a solution..
I have huge problems with my Z1, I have Android version 4.3 and I'm facing problems with camera and sound, the camera has a lot of noise, no matter the option I choose and the sound quality is really poor. I've tried to find KitKat even through PC Companion and haven't been able to get. HELP!!!

But sometimes it happens that sound comes from earpiece. Not all the time...probably 1 of 3-4 callings but it is not good, stable.
Looking forward for update, but there are several other issues:
1. Lags in the dialer app, especially after closing a call and other apps are opened randomly
2. Battery life is shorter, especially screen on time is near 2 hours or so, and before was closer to 4 hours
3. Pictures in low light are poor, no hdr for 20 mpx, just for 8 mpx, while samsung, lg does it at full resolution.
