Anonymous, 18 Jan 2014hi! i'm from india and i really want to buy sony xperia z1 but worried about screen cracking p... moreYes,It is a problem for colder regions.U see when the phone heats up,aluminium around the screen expands.When it cools down suddenly,aluminium comes back to normal causing the crack.You see the same problem in human skin,it cracks in winter.In India,Xperia Z1 does not have the problem.Check all the reviews in Flipkart,not a single complain is there regarding that issue of cracking.It has heating issue though.And it is advisable not to use this phone under water

It's worth a try, but I think it's going to be more of an insurance claim than anything.
bought this few months back, have huge doubt on the water proof and my doubt was proven true yesterday while on beach. I pull out SD card and it was wet, phone's off now and dead! would warranty willing to cover this?
Get the z1 if you really want it. There is always a newer and better phone coming out every few months if u keep reading about these phones you will never end up getting what u really want.

But heavy usage is kindof a problem for both, and according to GA bigger problem for Z1 during webbrowsing. Both devices have however had updates that improved on webbrowsing times, dont know which one is better now but still i dont think Z1 is anywhere near 30% better as it should be according to battery capacity. Hope z1 compact can rectify Sonys reputation in flagship battery life.

As for battery, the sad truth is that Z1 has very poor battery. If you check battery tests here on this site you find that Z1 lasts half an hour shorter than Xperia Z in the web browsing test, thats very pathetic considered the battery is 30% bigger in Z1 and the displays are same size.

AnonD-1285, 18 Jan 2014lol. whut?!!!Yes you can increase the ram of the handset..chk out rooting for xperia z1 with adc ram...supports 3gb ram similar to note 2
AnonD-1285, 18 Jan 2014lol. whut?!!!The question may not be as far fetched as it seems, it is possible to play around with different size swap partitions/swap files on rooted Android, thereby increasing the total amount of memory available to the system. Does it make a noticeable difference? No it doesnt but real life results are not required for most rooters, its a placebo same as playing with registry cleaners on windows.
Anonymous, 17 Jan 2014Guys do i need a screen protector for my Sony Xperia Z 1 or i dont need it? unless you don't want fingerprints on your screen, you don't. that built in screen protector is very tough
The screen cracks for no reason just like Xperia Z, minhe cracked with two weeks of use, sony refuse to replace.
