AnonD-207907, 20 Nov 2013Stay away from this phone. The after service help is almost non existent. I had the run around... moreNice story, sir. I have a Z1 myself, accidentally dropped it from the 2nd floor and it only had a slight scratch on the upper-left corner. I never dipped it into water though but it survived heavy rains when a deadly storm landed in our country. And speaking of customer service, I had a Xperia Go which got busted when it fell into a bucket of water (actually that's the lie I told them. What really happened was I left in my aquarium, forgot about it and left in there for 12 hours), and i just simply said that if the device is IP57 certified, then the warranty should include its water resistance. Then they replaced it right away. So sir, your tale led me to conclude that you are just advertising Apple Iphone - which sucks big time. not just against Sony but also against Samsung and Nexus devices. Take care.

AnonD-207426, 19 Nov 2013hi,who know which phone is better:lg g2 or sony z1 or samsung s4? thanks.Buy z1 bro,,don't waste your money on Samsung and LG's eggs.
Been using this phone for a week now and so far I only have 1 problem: it heats up pretty fast. Even if it is on stand by my 2X battery app says that the batt is overheating (though I'm not really sure how accurate the app is). Then there's one time it said that the batt is not available because the phone is heating. But I tried watching 2 series for 2 straight hours it heat up but didn't hang.
I just heard that this does not work on salt water or water with chlorine in it. If this is the case, then this must not be used on sea water and even at the swimming pool. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Slayer, 19 Nov 2013What??? I do take offense as I am not a new user havinbg owned Xperia Arc, S, T, Z & Z1 pl... moreWell that's ur thinking.i owned Xperia Z before but now i own Note 3 ,iPhone 5s and Galaxy Grand duos n Nokia lumia 920 but my friend owns Xperia Z1 now so I know for sure
but the fact is fact
As u can see ,dozen of comments r about hanging so im not the only one who have faced this prob ..
And u should keep that in mind that Xperia Z1 or note 3 or ipjone 5s or Lumia or even Lg any of these device is ultimate or have Full high Specifications no offense :)
Stay away from this phone. The after service help is almost non existent. I had the run around with a fault with the camera in the first 2 weeks, no one was willing to help solve it. I was just told to send it away which might take up to 4 weeks (for a brand new phone). Now it fell out of my pocket from about 40cm height and the screen cracked. I have just been told that it is just under $400 to get it fixed. This is almost the cost of a new phone, so now my waterproof phone is no longer water proof. Unfortunately, this leads me to the conclusion that I will have to go with Apple as they will at least help you with any problems you have.
Xperia Z1 leads for:
1. Faster CPU
2. Higher quality case
3. Battery size
4. Better camera
Samsung S4 leads for:
1. Screen vividness
What makes Xperia special is it's water-resistance case and taking photographs under water.
What makes Samsung special is it's cool smart actions
I have the Samsung S4 and the Sony Z1 the first day when it was released, The Sony Z1 is really lovely phone the only 2 problems: It is heavy and big on a 5inch display phone (stainless steel body) The other problem was in my phone only because my Friends Z1 doesn't have this problem : I could here the sound of signals through on the phone's handset, it's maybe because left it in the swimming pool for an hour (Deep end) haha rather than that it's a great heavyduty phone. One more thing The Camera phone's is not like what I've seen omn Advert it just above average. and the The 20.7 megapixels can only be available on manual mode, although everything will be Auto on the manual 20.7MP; it sounds crazy but it's the truth. The 3000MAH last nearly a day but with my friend > heavy user > it doesn't last a day.Am a sony Ericsson fan and I really love sony but this time I really prefer the Samsung S4.
jmc, 19 Nov 2013Xperia Z1 is hanging and heating up. can any one suggest the remedydownload the Sony update! that'll solve all your problems..
AnonD-206946, 18 Nov 2013Ok u own it ,congrats for that !! I was also a user of Sony Xperia before n Now my friend is ... moreWhat??? I do take offense as I am not a new user havinbg owned Xperia Arc, S, T, Z & Z1 plus a myriad of other phones such as the LG G2 and pretty much every Nexus phone ever released at various times! By the way, just so you know, I have also used every Iphone from 3 to 5 but can't stand the boring UI anymore. Fact, the Z1 does not hang period. Stop speculating about a phone you don't own. No offence!
Poor screen viewing angle,screen seems so washed out when compare to s4 or note 3 Camera quality is avg. Good but avg not so amazing. Very big and heavy too. Am sure Samsung haters rated this phone so high. Most of them don't even used this phone by themselves. get some life if you don't used a device don't rate it. plz. don't make other fool. U don't have money but others have.
AnonD-207426, 19 Nov 2013hi,who know which phone is better:lg g2 or sony z1 or samsung s4? thanks.Sony XZ1 because im Sony's fans :-) btw that's your money xD just get what you want

I am just loving it
Hi everyone... I was able to test the Z1 at a local sony store and I am impressed with its camera capabilities... however as i was fiddling around with the camera features for about 5 or so minutes i got a message that the camera was temporarily unavailable due to high temperature(thats the idea.. not sure of exact error message anymore). anyway i felt heat, but to me was not that significant. I own an acro s and there was a time i took a stroll in the park taking pictures and boy! did it heat up but no messages. i continued taking pictures until my battery ran out! I really want a z1... perhaps the unit i tested was a fluke. I want to ask real z1 owners here of their experience... do you encounter this message?
