Recently i got my Z1. nice device but any one now any
good protection like BOOK CASE COVER or hard case cover,
many of them on ebay but with one you recommend the best.
hi...does anyone know if the z1 is able to play wma? none of my wma songs pick up in the walkman player, and if I try to play directly from the sd card it gives me the unable to play media. i've downloaded a couple of music players from the play store but that did not play the files either. is this an isolated issue or found throughout? is it possible at all to play wmafiles or do I need to a converting software? any help on the issue is welcome...thanks

Can please an... moreSuggest you ask a guy who posts here called Titanium who has also posted a link to some great pics he took with the Z1. Read PA and you will see the only better camera phone is the Nokia Lumia with its 41MP camera!
I am planning to buy new phone. please suggest Xperia Z1 or Iphone 5s which one is worth to their price
Iv moved from a S!!! and seriously to much expectations from people. Ur not gonna get everything in a phone just be satisfied about what u got:
my review this is what i thought the differences were
Z1 over S!!! :
water and dust proof
build quality is perfect
S!!! over Z1 :
a lot more features
weighs less and thinner
all phones are good (just depends when they come out and what the manufacturer can put in at current time)
people expect a lot
think of it this way more components in a phone more likely its gonna be bigger.
if ur not happy buy all the phones and use every single one (picky people)
i want someone to persuade me to buy xperia z1. a great phone with great possibilities but it has it's negatives like every other phone and it's positives. if someone is a user of xperia z1 i want some help to decide because it's a big decision to be made. i want to know the negatives and positives of this phone so i can be sure that i'm making the right choice.

If u like z1 buy it now. It is better than lg nexus 5 because of larger battery and bettrr looks.

vijay, 30 Nov 2013HI guys.... First thing don’t compare Android phones to IOS & windows phones. Cause wit... moreperfect review, very helpful. to be honest now, xperia z1 is a fantastic device with great features and specs. i believe a negative is the useless space on the bottom of the phone an i believe the button should be there, at least that useless space should do something. anyway it's a great phone and one of the best in the market now. i am close to buying it. it has a perfect screen and i don't care that it has not good angles, i really don't care because i don't change my viewing angles while i am using my phone so it's fine! one thing that nobody answered me is how frequent are the updates in android and how many are there usually in a device let's say for xperia z1. cause i'm an iphone user and i don't know these things. thanks!
First thing don’t compare Android phones to IOS & windows phones. Cause with 512 RAM windows & IOS phones can run very well then Android phones (which having 512 RAM).
Compare the phones with in same range and OS.
Apple: - Having great OS ever (till now) IOS, Siri – No virtual Assistant can beat it, rich applications, having great body & more compactable, smooth performance.
Cons: - No memory card, price, less apps
Sony: - water proof & dust proof, good camera, really good display, maintaining good built quality. (Especially SP & Z series)
Cons: - To much big Bezel (4.5 inches phone is equal to 5” inches other brand phones), sharp edges, bad battery backup (Not ZR & SP), screen protection (less when compare to gorilla glass), Not customizable.
Samsung: - maintaining very good sensors, Price, easy to use, good AMOLED display, hitting with a lot of models. (S series & notes)
Cons: - Almost every mobile looks like same, built quality is bad.
HTC: - excellent beat Audio, beautiful display, feather touch, good looking models.
Cons: - Very sensitive will get lot of repairs.
Nokia: - best Windows phones, good in camera. (Lumia series)
Cons: - Heavy Body, Very less apps, Not easy to use.
LG: - To be frank only LG G2, Nexus 4 & 5 are good phones.
Blackberry: - best business purpose phone.
Motorola: - Once upon a time it was king unfortunately not now. (My first mobile)
In my opinion best mobiles now are Apple: 5 & 5S; Sony: Z1 & ZR; Samsung: S4 & S3; HTC: One & One Mini; Nokia: 520,720,920; LG: Nexus 4&5, LG G2; Blackberry: Z10, Z30; Motorola: Droid series & Moto X & Defy
Anyone who has the yellow tint on their Z1? Mine's having this issue. S/N BH906. The tint is evident in gray areas like notification bar and the setting of the weather widget. That's the only problem I've got so far. Viewing angles not a problem. I am selling it now. My brother and sister says not to as the screen looks ok. My friends agree that it is suffering from the yellow hue but not really pushing me hard to selling it as they aren't that techie or not a big deal for them. Is it a wise decision to sell it? Again that's the only problem. I hope someone can give me an advise on this one...
kamal, 28 Nov 2013Battery backup very low...can sm1 help me...only lasts for half a day :(Funny but my battery lasts a minimum of 1.5 days, yes not a heavy user but a normal user although if I play games, I still get just over 1 day.........Food for thought eh? Just wish all the liars and trolls will leave this blog so Z1 users can exchange proper experiences rather than have to read the useless view of TROLLS!

[deleted post]i have one more question and a serious one i believe. the software system now is jelly bean right and it is planned to be updated to kit kat. what is next? after kit kat? are there more updates? i don't know these things cause i am a user of iphone 4s and iphone has an update for like every 2 months (it's not a huge difference but it's an update) so you guys are android users and you are more experienced than me in android, are there updates like in apple?
I've had the sony z1 since October, tested the z1 through and through, I have not faced one problem, as a gaming device it is fantastic. Build quality is exceptionally superb, also tried various micro sd cards, sandisk extreme pro 64gb and also sony branded micro sd card 32gb. Tranfering files is mega fast from pc to external sd card and also transfering files within the device, I'm chuffed to bits with the z1. P.S to all, if you looking for genuine sony branded micro sd cards, go on amazon for low prices.
See yeah chappies...
[deleted post]thank you for your help, i'll take it under my consideration. are you a user of xperia z1? because this phone should have some negatives, it's a great phone but it has it's negatives such as if you want 20mp camera you have to go for manual mode, i find that a bit negative
