lol i didnt bought this device to cool it off in water and what updates are you talking about mate I have the latest that they could offer..Please answer if u have any solutions to my addressed problems..Jus saying this is the best wont make it the best..resolve the problems and I will myself say this is the best..I still stick to my point that I had better phones in the past than this one :P
Guys I have had this phone and I have had all those crazy phones @htcrules this phone is the real deal,
get your updates set and focus on what the phone is delivering.
the phone does heat up when gaming I think its because of the many apps that have been held in ram because if they are not closed, they are up and running.
the battery is by far the best I have had with any smartphone goes through a day and a night clearly has stamina which is very helpful.
if it gets too hot put it in water. lol.
otherwise this phone is worth the buck.
waiting for the kitkat update and we see what they have to change for us.
-heats up while gaming but bearable.
-speakers at the bottom, very bad place coz when gaming ur palm covers the speakers
otherwise precisely the best phone in the world todate
I got album fermware update on 5th feb,i updated it, but wen i open album n then wen i try to pinch zoom on selected image, screen go black n after mili seconds next image show, this update is for 4.4 kitkat, bt my phone is runing 4.3 jellybean, i i uninstaled the update, now pinch zoom work fine,why i recieved this update if its for 4.4 version, any one know any answer......pls tell, i use skype n it work very nice,just telling to those who wanted to know if this phone cn do video call,,,,
So now when I have made the real blunder of buying this awful phone I feel I should made all aware of the smallest of the things we all expect from a flagship device but this one is not even close...Sony needs to really pull up it socks and perform way better..Now having shifted from HTC Incredible S (2.5 years old) it still feels it was better to stay on it and believe me its no joke..I just bought it for what now seems a foolish reason i.e. the price band, waterproof, battery bank & cover (freebie) at a price which was nothing less than attractive..Buying sony u certainly feel the display & sound would be out of this world but I am really sorry to report its not even close to been said JUST OK..Specs wise this phone might rock on paper but jus getting a feel when u play with it gives u different opinion all together..The phone only looks great thats the only positive I got till date..Cons are endless starting with pathetic UI (hands down to HTC on this), poor display, pathetic sound, weak sensors, bad battery life, no touchscreen calibration, no calls & message grouping (what a 10k phone offers these days), no call waiting beep (this is shit)...I am seriously amazed as how this phone is being bought by so many ppl and no one did notice these really small and basic issues..I wish I would have bought HTC ONE or stuck to HTC Incredible S would have saved me on 35k..Sorry Sony but your flagship is a sunked ship..Paying Katrina Kaif wont help u guys..spend some money on R & D..and lastly that mobile cover being advised as worth 3k is the biggest piece of shit..i got so irritated that I dumped it in d trash and dont want to see that piece of useless shit..
Switching to the Sony Z1 after getting bored with my S3 was the biggest mistake I had made. Put aside the best design handset in the market, else are just crap. The UI is too dull, screen color is a bit wash out when comparing to my friend's Note3 or even my old S3, some video format cannot be played, cracked sound,super overheating issue, and the best part is, when I want to trade in, the price of it was around 60% of the price I bought it after 3 months usage. PLS GUY DO MORE RESEARCH BEFORE BUYING THIS PHONE.
From Galaxy S4 to Xperia Z1, for me its a good upgrade. Cleaner UI, Smoother UI, Less Lag, More Fast, camera is also very nice especially in Outdoor superb! No one can beat for now. Indoor is also good but not best but the best part is in lowlight its bright even if you dont use the flash. Front facing camera is very good too. Love taking picture with my gf using front camera. Battery life is very good, love playing Flappy Bird :)
Its been 5 months now that i am using Z1 , i must say this is first phone which has made me stick to it for 5 months. Its just superb , guys don't ever believe on people comments who say its not good. Personally its like a best machine.
Different UI from Samsung
Its totally a different experience
I know Xperia Z was shit phone , But this Z1 is certainly best phone in market, also it beats my partner's Note 3.
Go for it , thanks SONY
I bought Sony Z1 10 days ago, so far its excellent. battery life is good, 2 days per charge. also its camera is brilliant and believe me you don't need external camera to be with you anymore.
Hi I tried the sample handset in The-mobile-store, the picture quality was not good at all, it was very noisy even in good light condition. It was so hot, I noticed that the bluetooth, Wi-Fi and NFC were on and the live demo was running in a loop, also it was being charged, however the same was the case in Samsung Galaxy Note 3 but it was not even warm. I am not sure whether was it the nature of the handset or was it not updated. I noticed that the camera and volume keys were made of plastic, looked so cheap, atleast they could have coloured it with silver. I think Sony must keep up their name and give proper update to control the heating, battery issue and camera issue via OTA updates, or may be there are already working on it and will release it via 4.4 Kitkat, if not they should discontinue the model and recall it.
my xperia z1 has some problems when i update to 4.3 i cannot change the wallpaper and some other options

Tested the demo unit at Sony Centre. The camera quality really bad. The photo have huge amount of noisy. Blame that firmware not updated. Went to another shop and play with this model again but with updated firmware. The quality slightly improved but nothing compared to Samsung Note 3, HTC One and Nexus 5. Advice interested buyer to test it before you buy it.
dex, 04 Feb 2014i bought the Z1 at the hello stall. i chose the no warranty unit because its more cheaper that... moreWorst thing is that you will not get any updates from Sony, you will need to manually download ROMs and flash your phone to latest version.
Naturally there is no sticker, your phone has not been declared or paid import tax for, you are cheating your country by being a parasite for those doing their required share.
