the quality of the video is not good as S4 but the appearance is so nice. plus, the sound is not loud enough as S4.
Just compare with Xperia Z2 & Note3 but Z1 is the boss.
I like it, its performance, battery life too good...........
This is the best phone by far, battery life is good and lasts long. Quality pics and vids :)

One more question, I get my data connection gets disconnected often. 2G. Anyone else having same issue or is it due to my service provider??

Heavy usage just over 1 day.
Very heavy usage 12-20 hours depending if you charge your phone before you go to sleep or after you wake up.
Wi-Fi is on 75 percent of the time as it automatically turns off when you are out of range. GPS is on 24/7. according to power management in the settings screen on time is usually about 4 hours. Overall I'd say the battery life of z1 is good, but not great or bad.

(of which I spend about 700 megs to 1 gig of data online alone) but not running things like videos or any other major apps at the same time. I still have 3 days to where I can still exchange the phone if I find any problems, so I'm really pushing the phone. And yes, taking photos underwater is really possible. :-)
rana, 05 Mar 2014htc one max better than sony z1.Haha, not according to specs, not according to user reviews, not according to personal experience. Z1 is far better in design and performance. But it comes down to personal choice of what make or brand. Sorry to pop your bubble.
Guys this is the best phone compared to samsung,htc and nokia. Best best best.
rana, 05 Mar 2014htc one max better than sony z1.sony the best fone available in market reansons...looks,performance,features..
Anyone could tell me how is the battery life on this phone? I wanna know how many time you spend before recharge it, the time the screen was on and if the wifi was on or off during that time. Thanks
Vino, 05 Mar 2014Could someone tell me, why Z1 not able to play few HD videos. Bought this phone recently but I... moreSw implementation of certain codecs is missing from z1. download from google play mx player, vplayer and u will be able to see all movies. In mx player if u will not hear the sound then chose sw decoder instead of hw decoder.
Samsung offers from factory support for more movie formats.
Also try: mobo player, qq player. U should do fine with these.
No issue with your phone.

Apart from this site being better than Facebook, does anyone know of a good task manager for the z1 that actually works and not just consume more ram or cause software problems?
Could someone tell me, why Z1 not able to play few HD videos. Bought this phone recently but I find Movies can't play few videos. My Samsumng plays all videos. Or is there any patch released for this. I'm in 4.3, Jan 09 build as of now. Thanks in advance.
Azam26, 04 Mar 2014Upgrade the latest firmware using Sony PC Companion.. it will fix the issue. TY bro for your advice...will try that
terrible screen, broke in my front pocket! BTW I didn't drop it once it just broke spontaniously!

I have no issue with the album or any of the photo apps. Reading the manual also helps explain allot and shows how you can use more of the magic the phone has to offer. It's a bit of reading to do and kept me busy for a while.
