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 .
Hi Guys, Is there anyway to setup the applications on the SD card instead of the phone memory ? a program or something !!!

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
I got my z1 about a month ago and it's worth that big cash. What a PC. It's not phone.
I have updated my os from android 4.2 to 4.3 from Sony software updates, since then I am not able to play the games such as temple run subway surf etc. The screen is going blank. Can any one suggest me on how to overcome this problem. Thanks in advance.

Z1 also has DragonTrail in the front, but I'm not sure if Z1 has GG2 on back or also DragonTrail there now.
In any case,they don't break often and if you broke two - well, blame your self and how you use your phone. I assume you have boken it since you said shattered, and not scratched.

You can detach it using needle. But beware, the "sony" logo is printed there. If you detached it, no more sony logo.
I have switched from my Xperia Z to Z1... I like the water proof and its design. The camera quality is ok. The speed is also not bad. But both of my phone have the Same problem... My Z has crack at the back before I sold it... My Z1 now has crack on both back glass and front screen. The worst thing is... I have never even dropped them... (cheap TEMPER GLASS)...

Both can last 2 days on low usage and a day on moderate use. I never needed stamina mode on my Z, even if out all day with active HSDPA connection, it consumes very little on standby anyway.
