Fabulous.. Sewms like a worthy update... Will have to wait though as o2 usual delays... Thanks cheif.. :)
I'm here in Houston, TX. I was considering the Z1. But after reading the article, "Sony Xperia Z1: 3 months on," —Android Authority, I have thus decided against it.
1. I've seen this phone personally at the Houston Galleria. It was full of scratches—some huge. So, this is not a demo model issue as some have suggested. A phone without something similar to Gorilla Glass is outrageous.
2. The SIM is a chore to insert or remove. Yikes!
3. The Sony Store told me updates are only available via a computer if outside the IME region. Thus, an unlocked Sony Z1 is a dubious proposition for frequent travelers. An unlocked phone, especially with so many bugs, not easily updated is outrageous.
4. I watched the drop-text on YouTube. The phone would not respond after the first drop. Yikes! What good is water and dust resistance on a device so easily damaged if dropped?

For browsing, they're both as good as each other, although the Note 3 has the slight edge due to a bigger screen (that's it). Playing games? Both as good as each other.
which one is the best phone for me Z1 or Note 3? According to my daily activities are browsing, playing games, and photography.

Najwa , 28 Dec 2013May I know is it sharp when zooming? I was about to buy Z1 yesterday but the seller told me ... moreDude, go read phone arena's camera test. The Z1 has the best camera of all android phones and was only beaten into second place by Nokia 1020 which has 41mp!

I was getting 3/3 bars 2 rooms away from my wi-fi router, 2/3 bars on the other side of my house and 1/3 bars outside of my house. it might be worth noting that im using a wi-fi router instead of a dongle.

i got un update yesterday for my xperia z1 updated to android version 4.3 and i had a lot of problems, some apps wont work and have an error also sound enhancement got un error.
Najwa , 28 Dec 2013May I know is it sharp when zooming? I was about to buy Z1 yesterday but the seller told me ... moreZoom on everything expect 808 and 1020 is crap. Digital zoom wont save your life. You better off shoot it without zooming, then crop the picture out later. Digital zoom works in this way, but with enlargement.
