The best handset, camera quality is not upto the mark , rest it's superb, best battery time, built quality is superb, washed it many times but still working fine, im amazed with battery time after 4.3 JB update, i was using Sg3 previously, poor pathetic built quality, messaging freezes and daily restart of device is required, but with z1 i never restart..it's way too fast , not even a lag of micro second..go for it users.

Think of it the other way around, if Sony was to replace all broken displays for free then other customers would have to pay for those who are mishandling their phones.
This is the worst device I ever had. The screen showed colored lines after two weeks of purchasing and then it went off. I took the device to the warranty office and they told me they repair it if I pay 350 $ because they claim that the screen is not included in the warranty. Really garbage services sony, it seems they know about screen problems and decide to not included in the warranty. I decided to stop buying any sony products for the rest of my life and I am writing plenty of comments in websites like this. Whoever suffered from Sony garbage warranty please be welcomed to the campaign against sony until they fix their malfunctioning machines from their own pockets.
I'm the biggest fan of Sony ever ( i thing so ) but this Z1 is bullshit .. My display has been broke on the 3 day with no reason!! While i have play on it just cracked so please do not buy this one sucks big time !! Sony didn't replace my phone so i have to pay 150 euro for new display
Bought Sony xperia z1 seven days back. The phone is awesomely, amazingly, fantabulously beautiful. The resolution of the screen is very crisp. Details are very clear. Colours are natural and not saturated unlike Samsung. Phone is buttery smooth. No lag whatsoever. Camera is simply wonderful. The 20.7mp shooter does a fantastic job. Videos are also very clear. The triluminous technology is simply awesome. You will not feel like keeping the phone down and will continue watching the videos. And what to say about the sound quality. Sony is known for its superiormost sound. The player offers a wide range of equalizers. Overall hats off to Sony for this flagship phone. But Sony should have matched the correct battery for the specifications. I am not an addict of games. I only receive calls and do some whatsapping and messaging. The battery drains down by late evening. Hardly lasts for about 18 to 20 hours. Simple games like Bubble shooter too, tend to drain the battery. I wish Sony had thought about the battery more seriously. Agreed that none of the android phones lasts for more than one day. But for the specifications battery should have been more powerful.
But, I would still strongly recommend the phone. Unless one is not taking battery in to consideration. It is definitely worth the money. You will enjoy every moment with the phone.
Will touch function underwater or just have to take pics with the camera button instead?

First set your camera to manual mode and go to settings. Then select whichever ISO setting looks best for you.
