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.

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...
got my Z1... one thing i noticed the front and back camera are a bit grainy when you are in a not well lit room (front camera shows more grains)... but when i take pictures they are clear.. any one experienced the same thing?
gg ng, 22 Jan 2014am about to the sony zi but confused wth nokia 1020.advisefrnd i am using z1 mobile from 1 week phone options nd camera is good but one problem is there when i am using internet for 15 to 20 mins the phone was over heating heavely nd phone taking 10 mins to cool.i went to service center for this reason they are saying that this was common in z1 because of water proof protection nd they also said that there is no ventilation for phone and processor is big so that the phone will heat..i am not satisfy with this phone because of over heating..
Koki58 (UK), 19 Jan 2014I have it for over 4 months already and I need to say - It's the best phone I ever had... ... moreKoki58, regarding the numerous comments on the front/back glass crack, what is your comment for it? Is it really that easy to get a crack screen?
My Z1 screen cracked whilst sitting under my desk, in a handbag - ie. it cracked on its own. Currently arguing over warranty repairs, Optus says No Dice and wants me to pay $300 -

Through before purchasing this phone i was confuse with LG G2 and Galaxy S4 but luckily i choose Xperia Z1. LG G2 is having poor availability in india no service centre, also phone has palastic body. However Z1 has very classy look with quality material. S4 has very poor build quality, all samsung phone look same.
Advt of Z1 campare to others 1 Dust and water proof, 2 power management tool 3 high build quality 4 free portable charger and case (both are very useful)
Disadvt 1. Screen viewing angel is little bit nt gud,
2. Picture quality is not superbly fine which is expected from high end phone.
buttery smooth while operating multiple app. Battery life is good . It last for 24hrs with heavy use. In standby it consume negligible battery.
Overall i am very happy with my purchase .

To fix this you need to connect your z1 to your computer and run sony pc companion. From what i can remember it was asking me to repair phone as mine wasn't updated properly. Just one thing though, make sure you back up your phone first as this will completely wipe your z1 to factory settings.

I owned xz and xz1, battery life in xz1 last more than a day....xz from 7am til 2pm need to recharge the battery. While my xz1 will last the next day for recharge! I think you don't have xz1, maybe only xz. Even my xz upgraded to 4.3, the battery life is same as previous 4.2.2
please will anyone help i need ur opinion in this phone im really confused between z1 and note3
