Im a z1 user here in the philippines... I updated already to kitkat os and it seems everything is well. Its via OTA around 300 mb... Nothingg new except the lock screen design and the notification bar ... I hope i wont experience what you had experience ...
I'm a big gamer, which phone should I buy? LG optimus g pro, galaxy s4 or xperia z1? Please suggest..anyone
It's not a good phone at all. It's been only three months I'm using Z1. Why does the phone gets switched off while charging? Why is it that sometimes automatically the gets switched off while using? I am not satisfied with this phone. Can anyone answer to my question
Has anyone from the Philippines got the kitkat update thru wifi or OTA?

Please don't replay if you a... moreIf you like it and test it to see how it works then go for it. There are issues after kitkat update. Before was an excellent phone, now it is anoying, almost unsuable ( can hear when i am being called, ui lags or opens randomly other apps, battery life is shorter). If it is with jelly bean i say go for it and stay on jb untill kitkat is fixed.
Z1 with jb was one of my best android phones ( had htc desire, sam galaxy s2, htc one s, htc one) so go for it under condition i ve mentioned above.
It is true that z2 is better in terms of hw ( don't know about receptiom, which is great on z1) so if u affort it will be better for u.
