i bought the Z1 at the hello stall. i chose the no warranty unit because its more cheaper that the one with warranty. but i noticed that the unit does not have a NTC sticker/logo. The people from hello stall says its because it has no warranty from sony. I doubted its authenticity so i placed my Z1 under the water. I was amazed to see that the water resistant feature really works.
I have to problems with my Z1, first is, it loads the pictures in my album app very slow; the second is, i cn barely get an internet signal from my smart network considering that the smart network is known for broadcasting the best signal among the sun & globe. Im still in doubt with the authenticity of this Z1 bought without warranty from sony here in the philippines.

Guys...help...I'm going to buy this phone Sony Xperia Z1, but...Does it have any issues with the water resistance? Can water damage the phone when submerge into fresh water?
I love this phone. I got it just over a month ago and my Xperience :P with it has been dream-like. I can find almost no fault with it. My only issues is that it is a fingerprint magnet, it does get very hot but that is to be expected (it is made of glass after all. What did you expect?) I can't see why everyone goes for a Samsung these days when phones like the Z1 exist. I held and used a S4 and the S4 just felt way too lite and cheap, as opposed to the aluminum and glass Z1. The UI Samsung uses is awful. They ruined the look and feel of Android. The UI of the Z1 is lite and is more akin to stock Android, but with a change in colour and some slight yet pleasant design tweaks. For all the people who don't like this phone or have problems with it, there are 2 possible reasons why. Either the phone is faulty, or you are an idiot who doesn't know how to use the phone properly and must get a Samsung just like everyone else. Also, I'm a power user and I have rooted and hacked more than 10 Android devices, just as a hobby. I know almost everything about Android and how it works, and the Z1 is the best Android device I have ever used. I didn't even need to root it right away, that is how good it is. I'm rooted now though :P

My advice is to get a decent cover for it. The reason for my drops is primarily because of the glass back which makes it really slippery both to hold to as well as say, putting on one's lap for a minute. A case should resolve this. I find the phone quite good once the OS is up to 4.3 or higher. I'm looking to see whether I can repair the phone, although I've already got another phone that I'm using now.
worst phone I ever used.I hate the over heat of this phone.I think the easiest way to cooldown this phone is putting this in to cold water cuz it's water resistant.I think water resistant is a trick used by sony to prevent z1's over heating.very smart...don't buy this shit...
i am researching about this phone, saw over the net about screen problems, is it true? how durable is this thing?
when i taken 10 to 15 photos at a time my z1 becames fullyy heating it taken 15 mins to cool..,,i am not satisfying with my z1 mobile
Just updated my z1 and noticed that the equalizer no longer works outside of walkman. So this resulted in crappy speaker sound for youtube and all other apps that is not walkman. Has anybody else that installed the most recent firmware update experience this issue?

Hopefully Z1 was the last Xperia flagship with this kind of display, also the midrange phablet Xperia T2 Ultra is confirmed to sport a new IPS display.

AnonD-230014, 03 Feb 2014how long is your battery life dude?mine is also poor awwIts the display that consumes too much power and there is no way to fix that. You just have to wait for Sirius and hope it carries the same display tech as Sony is using in Z1 Compact. Or get Z1 Compact instead if you can live with the smaller display and lower PPI, just try to sell your Z1 before Sirius comes along and makes it worthless.
