its a great great great phone,,,,,,all samsung phones look same n i used galaxy siii n got bored of amoled screen....first u like amoled n its blown out colour but after few months u will start geting bored bcos in mind u know its all not real colours,,,,i wanted to get out of amoled screen phones n wanted a good lcd or ips screen ,,,,lg g2got great screen but very old design n camera also not upto experia z1,n no memory card option ,,,so i went for z1 it got every thing ,,,good look great camera, memory card option,water proof,n screen look great n best straight on ,,,i agree its viewing angle not great but who use a phone at 45degree angle, i use my phone straight on n its best screen wen looking at straight ,,,,
Got Z1 recently, great phone, great pre-installed apps (only the ones one needs ... great stock file manager, etc.) all can be disabled and thus be gone effectively from phone is wanted.
The camera is pretty good, still lacks in dark times.
There is only ONE speaker despite misleading design of bottom grill. Sound is excellent none-the-less. The walkman appication has many sound enhancement feaures not found in any other app, especially for free.
Very happy with phone overall
Do NOT unlock bootloader as this breaks camera functionality. Sony is trying to fix it, read articles on it if you are interested!

Z1 20MP camera? PFFT what a joke. My samsung galaxy note 3 takes better photos than your z1 toy. If you want to defend against trolls know your facts first or dont defend at all! coz sony z1 is the worst camera phone ever.

Don't use a common word and try to imitate like others, Where as the word doesn't match with situation. I am registering my comments in Sony's forum as what I experienced in Z and Z1. Because dimensions and weight of those handsets is not good for 5"inch screen as I said before, Which is not user friendly with it's rectangular design.

It's a decent phone but the screen sensitivity can be poor. I'm not sure if it gathers dust and that interferes or if it's when the screen is cold but it sometimes can't hold a drag swipe. Makes unlocking the phone via the pattern unlock very difficult sometimes. I've noticed especially in the morning. It sounds small but becomes incredibly annoying!

Buy the ZL and enjoy it.
