when it comes to sound quiality, for me, z1 is weak. how's your Z1 audio for you? even i adjust it in highest level of volume, it's sounds gentle compare to samsung. and one more thing, the battery drains so fast. i'm very disappointed in audio quiality. i ain't say anything negative except audio and battery. the features, camera and everything were doing great. Don't hesitate to buy this phone.

Tanya Dennett, 26 Mar 2014My screen has a crack in it, only had it for a month. Are there problems with the screen? No problem with it, I don't have any physical damage on my Z1 and I've had it for months.

I have over 40 apps installed from which I use more then 8 at the same time and have found no issues at all. The heating problems happen to all phones, but since real quality ones have aluminium inside the heating is more noticeable.
I have just updated to latest sw. I have the issue with the sound coming from the earpiece but i went to sound setting and unchecked clearsound, then everything have returned to normal so far. Battery isn't better yet, but all day long i've played with the phone. Notification bar is nicer and more stock kitkat. Scene mode is back on certain resolution on manual mode. The is 16:9 mode on manual. No 2k recording yet.
Ps: my z1 is c6903, carrier vodafone Romania

I finally sorted out the battery drainage issue after the latest kk update. I installed operations & battery monitor systems and disabled all programs that had a high cpu rate & power consumption. It seemed to have been a software problems with the google+ programs.
Has anyone noticed the Aspect ration of 4:3 on Superior Auto after the KK update? It's better than the 16:9 one. :)
I was big follower of Sony, now I hate Sony brand because the design of the product, all the Sony design and the colours just look dead ugly and unwanted, I don't know why Sony design the phones with black front? Is look ugly, Sony need wake up people don't like the sort of design front black and back with deferent colours, all the phones should be one colour, either fully white, or fully black,.
sakthi, 25 Mar 2014just wait for a z2 friendzz... :DVery true, wait for Z2, do not buy Z1, you will regret, thats for sure.
Those who cannot wait for Z2 should go for Z1 Compact, the difference in battery life is tremendous, while Z1 cant last 6 hours for light usage with screen on (like texting), the Z1 Compact can do 12-13 hours! Expect similar (or better) battery performance from Z2, this is because of new display technology used in Z1 Compact and Z2.
Z1 is the worlds fastest phone, really the fastest, but only when it comes to draining the battery, its superspeed, 1% every 2 minutes when doing webbrowsing at bright display settings.

I hate to repeat myself, even you know its true that Z1 battery is good only for standby and calls you still oppose my post. Thats called bias.
AnonD-209094, 24 Mar 2014i think you been ill advised. Its true that iPhones dont have good battery but still better th... moreyou have no idea what you are talking about...
to say that the iphone has a better battery life than the Z1 is just nonsense...do your research better instead of spreading false info...buy both phones and only after that you can say to people things like this...iphone is nowhere near the Z1 in terms of battery,build,camera,cpu,screen and so on...
