SohailZafar, 25 Jan 2014Hi and GOOD MORNING to all out theres, I looking for a solid device for myself. Currently I us... moreIf you like to have your time wasted then go for the 1520. Personally i cant use WP8 phones because the slow animations it forces me to watch freaks me out. If only it was like high end android phones who remain responsive while doing transitions, but no, WP8 is made to tick along in its own pace no matter how good hardware it runs on, and that pace is way too slow.
Except form that weird OS the 1520 is great, the battery is immensely better than the Z1, and cam is very good as well.
hello ,,to sonyxperia fren,,, my xperia z1 still not yet get update to 4.3,,can anybody who r using z1 to tell!!
Hi and GOOD MORNING to all out theres, I looking for a solid device for myself. Currently I using LUMIA 720 Which serves me really well since last 10 months but now I want to change my handset. I HAVE CHOOSE FOUR SMARTPHONES (Nokia Lumia 1520, IPHONE 5S,GALAXY NOTE 3 & SONY EXPERIA Z1) My preferences for the device are !
1. Solid and catchy build quality.
2. A good snap shooter.
3. Should have Best battery Backup.
4. I am heavy user of social networking apps.
5. Should have quality hardware with no lags.
6. Should have quality games I m not a heavy gamer but sometimes I use to play games.
Kindly any one help me to choose right one for me.
There are so many complains on sony support forum saying touchscreen looses contact. Youtube also results so many videos regarding same. And people are saying it might be a hardware issue.
Z1 owners please comment about the issue and to what extend its bad.
frnds any one using cpu controller to z1 phone for Controlling "App" of phone heating purpose..??if any one using plz help me in this matter because my phone is full heating when i use it for browsing for 20 to 30 mins..,,i used samsung phones they are not heating but this phone was fully heating
I've had the Z1 for about a month already. It's an amazing phone. In regards to the noise you get when trying to take pics at night, just change the camera setting to manual-ISO and choose whichever works for you. I've taken amazing pics at night and found no problem. The battery is good enough, I charge it every 2 days with regular use (always using Stamina mode). Also, I've read about phones that "drown" when got into water, the manual says phone can take about one meter of water for up to 30 mins, you just need to make sure the flaps on the sides are all well closed before you try waterproofness. So far no complaints of the phone.
Raj , 22 Jan 2014But my phone is not asking for any repair... Is there anyway to get back to 4.2 jelly bean os ... moreOn the top left of sony pc companion it will show something like a tick icon, saying your phone/tablet is up to date. If you click on this you should get a note that says 'if you experience severe problems with your phone/tablet, click on the link to reinstall the latest available phone/tablet software for optimal performance'.
repair my phone/tablet is highlighted in blue. Click on it as it is a link.
If you cant find it here then unfortunately i cant help much more as i think its not possible to downgrade to 4.2.2. I've done some research on how to downgrade but with no success.

Does anyone of you face the problem of the browser at the small apps disappear after updating your phone to the latest 4.3? I need reply, thankyou!
Guys bought this phone about 3 weeks from flipkart for about 33.5k, back in india.
I upgraded the phone to 4.3 few days post I got it, but found thr battery life was low, gog this exchanged for a new one for an out of the box 4.3 jb and found that the battery life was indeed good.
The camera has noise and the night snaps are pretty bad in auto mode but overall the photos come out good.
Nice and crisp display
Xreality eats up battery so its good to keep it off for good extended battery life.
Smooth interface of sony
Nice looks and really big phone
White looks awesome
Bad: Display get s easily scratched, as Sony has put in some shata proof screen guard, better to get a screen guard oncs u buy.
allen1327, 23 Jan 2014got my Z1... one thing i noticed the front and back camera are a bit grainy when you are in a ... morenot an owner of Z1, but as far as i heard the superior auto does have a lot of noise in low light. the manual mode one produce clearer image.
Raj , 21 Jan 2014I have updated my os from android 4.2 to 4.3 from Sony software updates, since then I am not a... moreUninstall then re-install the games they will then run as they used to although you will lose your game saves and data. OZ
Just 15days back i got the Sony Xperia Z1, really its awesome, the phone performance good, battery back up also good compare to other mobiles, Previously I had experienced with Sony Neo V, Sony Xperia P, HTC One XL and Nokia Lumia 920. from all these models the Xperia Z1 is the excellent. I will recommend this phone. My data will run 24hrs, even though the battery back up is good. Sincere thanks to Sony.
I used this sony xperia Z1 days ago, everybody say that, it's the best camera's phone. but i don't think so, 20.7MP can't compare to 8MP on any device. damn...
